Nasty Weather Factors into Football Loss

On October 22, 2016, Hudson Catholic Boys Varsity Football suffered a devastating loss against Delbarton School. Although they lost 54-14, they tried their best, despite the extreme weather conditions.
Although the team was defeated, they fought very strongly throughout the entire game. There were two touchdowns made by sophomore Aziz Wilson who plays running back, safety and wide receiver . When asked about how he felt about the game, Wilson indicated disappointment in the team’s communication on the field and commented on the nasty weather conditions.
“I felt as though we could’ve done better by communicating with each other and just having a better mindset coming into the game,” Wilson said. “I felt like if we played in better weather we probably would’ve come out with a win, and if our defense would’ve done better tackling, we would’ve gotten the ball more to score more touchdowns.”
Wilson then offered a little self-congratulation. “I scored two touchdowns,” he bragged.
The Commentator then spoke with senior Khashawn Decker, who didn’t drive with the team to Delbarton because he had to take his ACT in the morning. “College first!” Decker said.
“I don’t know, I just felt that it was a hostile environment,” Decker continued. “It was very cold and windy, and I just felt like we didn’t play together as a team. I think if the weather was more cooperative we would’ve been able to use all of our strengths such as throwing the ball and getting wide receivers putting space.”
And how does Decker feel he did on the ACT?
“It went pretty good,” Decker said. “Although I was thinking about my team the whole test, and it threw me off… Let the public know to never take a standardized test on game day!”
The Hawks will play at St. Anthony’s HIgh School at 7 p.m. on October 29, 2016, at Caven Point.
