LITTLE FALLS – The boys on the varsity football team at Sherburne-Earlville high school stood in the face of adversity and rose to the challenge on the road last Saturday, Sept. 17.
Tied at the half at 14-14, the Marauders would grind their way to a third quarter score, lifting them to their 20-14 win. Matt Hull would tally his third score of the night with a game winning four yard run. However, despite the impressive runs from Hull all game, it was the defensive stands that were made that truly ensured a victory on the day.
Proud of our kids and how they handle adversity,” said S-E head coach Ed Holmquist.
With the game on the line, and up 20-14 – following a missed extra-point kick on the Hull touchdown – Little Falls responded with vigor as they drove down the field in the fourth quarter inside the S-E 10-yard line.
“They faced a third and goal from our two with under a minute to go. There quarterback Kobe Jackson (Little Falls) rolled to his left, but Matt Hull was our outside backer and dragged him down behind the line for a sack to set up fourth and goal,” said coach Holmquist.
