Fulton County Cowboys Repor t

Despite the absence of several key players and injuries during the game, the Fulton County Cowboys shut out Southern Huntingdon’s Lions 21-0 Saturday. The victory moves the Cowboys’ record to 2-1 on the season.

A solid effort by the entire Cowboys defense carried the day. The defensive line was anchored by nose tackle Brandon Johnson and defensive tackles Nathan Loreman and Lane Ulsh. Their play was complimented by great end play from Brice Feagley and Garrett Danfelt, which led to big tackling days by linebackers Aaron Schepis and Dylan Gordon. The few times the Lions were able to generate offensive momentum, their drives were ultimately quieted by two Chase Novak interceptions.

On the offensive side of the ball, Gordon had two huge touchdown runs behind a hardworking Cowboys offensive line anchored by Zach Scott, Colton Deshong, and company.

Head coach John Heuston said after the game “This is the third straight impressive performance from these kids. We could easily be 3-0 right now. They work hard at games and at practice. Even with the team being short and the injury today, everyone on the team is contributing. If they continue to work hard at practice and perform like this on Saturdays, we will be very hard to beat.”

The game next week is against the Juniata Valley Eagles at 11 a.m.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 24, when the Cowboys play under the lights in a rematch with the Lions at Southern Huntingdon High School. Mark that date and come out and see some great Cowboy football!

In JV action, Southern Huntingdon prevailed by a 14-0 final.
