|Dragon football improves to 3-0 with home blowout|
|Written by Kyle Arnoldy|
HHS football is off to an impressive start after putting on another one-sided show Friday, Sept. 13 at home. The Dragons quickly pulled away from Highland en route to a 42-6 victory as Holyoke stays perfect after three games.
After moving only three yards in the first three plays to open the game, Highland was forced to punt from their own 23-yard line. A short punt gave the Dragons excellent field position from Highland’s 42-yard line in Holyoke’s opening offensive possession.

It didn’t take long for HHS to establish the running game with two rushes combining for 20 yards to open the drive. A 13-yard completion by Trevor Dalton to T.J. Gertner pinned the Dragons at the 9-yard line.
After a holding penalty placed HHS just inside of the red zone, running back Bradley Cumming found space for a 19-yard dash to the end zone with just under eight minutes remaining in the first quarter. Jorge Varela sent the PAT through the uprights to give Holyoke a 7-0 edge.
A Husky fumble recovered by Wyatt Powell once again gave the Dragons favorable field position in Highland territory. The rushing attack continued as Dylan Kotch rumbled for a 12-yard gain before Saul Ramos sprinted in from 20 yards out for another Holyoke touchdown. Varela added the PAT for a 14-0 HHS lead with 5:40 left in the opening quarter.
