SEFFNER — Armwood's defense is relentless, often downright brutal and, so far, devastating.The latest notch on the Hawks' defensive belt came in Friday's Class 6A, District 7 championship against a Hillsborough team that is pretty darned good in its own right.But not good enough this time around.Throughout the night, Armwood chased, harassed and sometimes pummeled the Terriers (see four crushing sacks) en route to a 28-6 victory.That means Armwood's defense has allowed 36 points this season (4 points per game) and, more importantly, gives the Hawks a 9-0 overall record with a 5-0 mark to take the district title."We wanted this to get homefield to start the playoffs," Armwood coach Evan Davis said. "We want to do everything we can to get in position to win a state title. Tonight we did what we needed to do."And the Hawks did it without the full services of starting quarterback Devin Black, who practiced just a few minutes this week while nursing a strained throwing shoulder.Black, who still completed 6 of 11 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown, didn't play every down and missed most of the fourth quarter, giving way to running back Brian Snead, who ran the offense from a wildcat formation — and ran it very effectively.Snead finished with 17 carries for 146 yards, including touchdown runs of 15 and 16 yards, and a touchdown reception of 23 yards.It was teammate Jerome Ford, however, who first broke things open when he ripped off an 80-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter.Before Ford's big run, Hillsborough (6-3, 4-1) gave Armwood just about everything it could handle. In fact, with just more than a minute left in the first half, the game was scoreless.The Terriers actually could have held the lead if not for several crucial mistakes (two lost fumbles) and a couple of near misses on passes that might have gone for touchdowns, including a wide-open screen and a long throw that missed the sprinting receiver's hands by inches."We self-destructed," Hillsborough coach Earl Garcia said. "We can't have those mistakes and expect to (beat Armwood). But hopefully we'll see them again in the playoffs and play better. We still have that chance."
