Football: Sunlake 44, Hudson 6

HUDSON — Hudson's winless streak, which spans two seasons, was extended Friday night with a 44-6 loss to Sunlake.

The Seahawks dominated with a superior ground game led by seniors Eddie Burgos and Ron Richards. Richards finished with 97 total yards on seven attempts and had two touchdowns. Burgos led the game in total yards with 207 on 10 attempts. He also led the game in scoring with three touchdowns.

"Sunlake should not be underestimated," Burgos said.

While the offense was very efficient, penalties did hurt Sunlake, which committed 16 for a loss of 170 yards.

"We will watch the film and go over our mistakes. I thought we did some things very well. The penalties really hurt us, but we ran the ball very well," coach Bill Browning said.

Hudson's greatest struggle was at the line of scrimmage. The back field was only able to get 21 total rushing yards on 21 attempts. Adding to that, Hudson lost 35 yards due to bad snaps and an overpowering Sunlake defensive line. But Hudson played a very clean game with only 35 yards lost from penalties.

The Cobras finally got on the scoreboard on the last drive of the game. Sophomore quarterback Joey Caruso completed a 19-yard pass to Christien Thomas that put them on Sunlake's 39-yard line. With 10 seconds left in the game, Caruso capped off the drive with a 39-yard touchdown pass to senior Steven Fender.
