HARPURSVILLE – A closer score than most would have thought at the half, Harpursville used a methodical attack to close out the 26-0 homecoming win over visiting division opponent, Oxford, this past Saturday.
Harpursville-Afton, now a Class D playoff bound team, punched their ticket in front of the Hornet crowd one last time – shutting out Oxford on Saturday, October 14.
“We haven’t won and that is extremely disappointing, but we’re not folding, we’re going to keep pushing forward and I truly believe good things will be coming. So, we’re just going to keep going,” said Oxford head coach Jon Carey. “Harpursville came out ready to play, they had a playoff spot on the line, and they executed and were able to have less mistakes than we did. There is a classy coach over there, he is one of the best in Section IV, in my opinion. He prepares his kids well.”
Oxford impressively held the Hornets to a 0-0 score in the opening quarter – but things unraveled in the second quarter after losing a two-way starter and watching the Harpursville-Afton rushing attack heat up.
