The Hodgeman County High School Longhorns rolled through the South Barber Chieftains Friday night by a score of 52-6. The game ended at halftime.
The win made the Longhorns sectional champions and set them up to face either Otis-Bison High School or Ingalls High School next Friday in the 8-Man Division II sub-state round.
Otis-Bison beat the Hodgeman County 58-26 back on Oct. 26.
Longhorns head coach Matt Housman said the team was a little banged up that game, but has had a couple of weeks to overcome those injuries.
“We’re doing good now,” Housman said.
Key to the next game will be the team’s play on the line of scrimmage. Housman said that wasn’t something the team did well against Otis-Bison, and will try to do this time should the teams face again next week.
The Chieftains never got their run-game as established as they would have perhaps liked, Housman said. The Cheiftains’ passing game was more successful, accounting for the only six points they scored in the game.
“We knew they’d make plays in the passing game, throwing the ball deep, they have good athletes, so we knew,” Housman said. “Six points (allowed), I mean I fine with pry 20 with athletes like they have, just off them being athletes.”
The Longhorns will next play next Friday, Nov. 17, at a time and against an opponent yet to be determined.
