North Huntingdon’s Steelers avenged an early season overtime loss to our Fulton County Cowboys in convincing fashion. Behind an extremely effective running attack, the Steelers found the end zone on their first drive of the game. After a Cowboy punt pinned the Steelers deep in their own territory to start the second quarter, the Huntingdon running attack struck again, this time breaking a 72-yard touchdown run off the left side. The Cowboys were unable to move the ball in their final possessions of the half, setting the halftime score at 12-0.
Huntingdon received the second half kickoff and continued to run the ball right at the Cowboy defense. Facing a key fourth down at the Cowboy 19, Huntingdon converted the first down and followed that conversion with another running touchdown one play later.
The ensuing possession proved the Cowboys’ most effective drive of the day. Aided by a Huntingdon personal foul penalty, the Cowboys advanced to the Steeler 22-yard line before a holding penalty and fumble ended the possession. Huntingdon answered the Cowboy turnover with another scoring drive, this time converting the extra point and setting the final at 25-0.
The loss is the Cowboys’ third consecutive defeat, dropping their record to 3-3 on the season. The final regular season game is next Saturday against the Juniata Valley Eagles, who the Cowboys defeated in week one.
