Mountain Valley Hawks 8th A team averaged over 11 yards per play as they ran away from the Greyhounds, 39-6 on Thursday night at Hawk Stadium.
Of the 34 plays from scrimmage, 16 plays went over 10 yards of real estate as the Greyhounds found out that a Hawk can run like a Roadrunner.
Last year, MV 8A team lost one game and it was against this Boerne club. If the casual fan did not notice, Mountain Valley was still stinging from that game and wanted to make amends.
(Amen)ds were indeed made as the Hawks finished their prayer over Boerne by also saying Amen.
“We needed to win this game tonight,” Jacob Ruff said smoothly.
Ruff was just as ruthless whether he was playing linebacker or running back.
“I like to hit, but I like both sides of the ball equally,” Ruff said like a politician. “But anytime I see a chance to make a hit, then I am going to take my shot.”
Another Hawk that plays like the Tazmanian Devil on both sides of the ball is Trenton Lorett, “This is district and we were going to give it our all.”
But don’t forget that ‘D’, because Mountain Valley only allowed one fluke pass play to go the distance as a tipped ball that could have been intercepted bounced off a Hawk’s hands into a Greyhound that finished the run and scored Boerne’s only touchdown on this night.
