|Huntington falls to Glenbrook|
A familiar name to past Huntington graduates helped devise a plan to slow down the Hounds' offense in Glenbrook Academy's 33-12 win over Huntington Friday in Minden.
"We set out to stop the run because they run the ball extremely well," said Don King, the defensive coordinator at Glenbrook who was head coach at Huntington in 1984. "They have some talented players and we were scared of giving up the big play. They have that capability. We just kept out fingers crossed all night."
The win assured the Apaches of the District 6-A championship for the second straight year.
Glenbrook won state last season, defeating Huntington in a rematch for the South State championship.
"Personally, I hope we don't play them again," King said. "They have a real good football team."
Huntington, which trailed 19-12 going into the final period, had the ball inside the Glenbrook 15-yard line twice in the first half without scoring any points.
"One we should have scored, the second time was near the end of the first half when we only had one time out and had to try and throw it a bit," Harkins said. "They never really threatened to score but one time in the first half."
Huntington scored first after a short drive on a Andreas Swanson 39-yard run. Glenbrook responded by going 59-yards in 10 plays with David Thompson going the final yard. Jake Byrd added the point after and the Apaches went on to lead 7-6 at the half.
Glenbrook wasted no time in scoring in the second half, taking just six plays to extend their lead to 13-6. Hunter Leppert found Byrd in the left corner of the end zone from 20-yards out for the touchdown.
The Hounds answered the Apaches' score with one of their own. Huntington traveled 65 yards in nine plays to make the score 13-12 as Jeremy Randall scored on a 10-yard run.
The Apaches made it 19-12 on their next possession as Jack Jiles capped a 70-yard, nine play drive as he scored from one-yard out.
The Glenbrook defense forced Huntington into a third and out on the next possession, and then their offense marched 86 yards for another score.
Glenbrook fumbled the ball inside their 10-yard line to start that drive, but an Apache player recovered.
"The ball was going all over the place and they ended up getting it back," Harkins said.
Jiles scored on a 6-yard run to finish the drive.
"We get the ball back with five minutes remaining and have to score twice, so we were forced to do some things we don't do every well," Harkins said. "We went for it on fourth down at our 35 and didn't make it."
Preston Wise also scored on a 25-yard run.
"There's no doubt we can play with them," Harkins said. "We had opportunities, but didn't rise to the occasion. They have a good football team. Through three quarters and a few minutes of the fourth quarter it was a dogfight like we expected. We just kind of came unraveled after that."
