Football: Hudson 17, Wesley Chapel 14

HUDSON — With starting quarterback Joey Caruso out with an injury, Owen Derksen led a run-heavy Hudson (2-5-0, 2-3-0) offense to a 17-14 Homecoming win over Wesley Chapel on Friday night. Derksen attempted just three passes and handed the ball off to Noah Siegrist 28 times.

Hudson took its first lead, 7-6 in the second quarter, after Justyn Johnson rushed for a 13-yard touchdown. A Wesley Chapel penalty put the home team in the red zone. The Wildcats responded with a touchdown from quarterback Ty Tanner on a 5-yard run.

Tanner was intercepted twice in the second half. Hudson took advantage of the extra possessions by running down the clock and adding a touchdown and field goal. Wesley Chapel (2-5-0, 1-4-0) was in Hudson territory with less than three minutes to go, but was stopped on fourth down.
