Hurricane Hammers Visiting Winfield

Redskins Roll Over Generals In Season Opener

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

If there was any doubt about Hurricane's new coach, Jeremy Taylor, hurting the success built by Willis May, then get out a huge erasor.

The Redskins made it clear that the coaching change was only a speed bump in their 2012 season opener-at home.

PutnamLIVE.com's Game of the Week saw Hurricane dominate their cross-county rival, beating Winfield 44-7.

It started off on a bad note for the Green and White. The snap for what would have been their first punt rolled into the end zone for a safety giving the red and white a quick 2-0 lead. Hurricane never looked back.

When The Generals held down The Redskins star runner Zach Pate, Hurricane took to the air. Quarterback Austin Hensley completed 21 of 33 passes for an impressive 309 yards. Junior Koi Turner hauled in 10 catches for a solid 147 yards. 

As the Friday Night Lights came on, the August sun set on Winfield's chances of winning.


Pate finally figured out the stingy Winfield defense, in the fourth quarter, running 98 yards.

Hurricane's defense had a solid night, shutting down Winfield to only seven points, including an impressive goal line stand. The Generals only score came on a 40-yard interception return to paydirt by T.C. Kester. Even though Winfield's Seth Lewis ran for 100 yards on 24 carries, Hurricane kept him out of the end zone.

Meanwhile, The 'Skins defensive front harassed The Generals' junior quarterback Toby Show, never letting him accomplish anything to really help his team.
