Dragons fall to Wiggins, now in 3-way tie for third PDF Print E-mail
Written by Isaac Kreider   

Nearing the end of the regular season, the Holyoke football team has hit a few road bumps. The Dragons played on the road in Wiggins Friday, Oct. 17, losing 12-40. After opening league play with two wins, Holyoke now sits in a three-way tie for third place with a league record of 2-2.

The Tigers put the only points on the board in the first quarter taking a 6-0 lead. They increased their lead to 12-0 with a touchdown early in the second. Holyoke was able to cut the deficit in half, but Wiggins snuck in another TD just before halftime to go into the break with an 18-6 lead.

Holyoke just couldn’t find its groove and allowed one touchdown in the third and two more in the fourth before making its second score and ending the game with the 12-40 loss.

“We played well at times,” said coach John Zilla. “But we had players in new positions and had too many mistakes.”

Wiggins grabbed the early 6-0 lead with a touchdown run midway through the first quarter. Later, the Tigers drove down deep into Dragon territory, but the Holyoke defense put the brakes on that drive and stopped Wiggins short on fourth-and-goal.
