The Southern Huntingdon Lions roared throughout the first half en route to a convincing win over the Cowboys. The Lions used a dominant running attack to score on all three possessions of the first half, racking up a 19-0 lead. While the Cowboy defense stiffened in the second half, the offense was unable to find a rhythm. The Cowboys did force two second half turnovers by the Lions. Tiare Durant snared an interception, while Lane Ulsh recovered a fumble.

The loss drops the Cowboys to 1-2 on the season. They face Juniata Valley next Saturday at 9:30 a.m.

Southern Huntingdon’s JV Lions made Saturday a clean sweep over the Cowboys, claiming a 24-0 victory. After kicking off to open the game, the Cowboy defense started strong, forcing Southern into a three-and-out. Fulton County’s offense then established some momentum behind the strong running of Taysean Foster, Zander Sipes and Brandon Shippy. Southern kept the Cowboys out of the end zone, however, while establishing their own strong running attack en route to four touchdowns on the day.

The Cowboys’ best opportunity to score came near the end of the first half. Colton Mellott connected with Sipes on a long pass, but the half expired before the Cowboys could cross the goal line.

The JV Cowboys return to action on Saturday, facing Juniata Valley at 11 a.m.

The Flag Cowboys played host to Southern Huntingdon Blue this weekend. Southern claimed a 51-12 victory in front of a nice Fulton County crowd.
