Talk about a turnaround, wow, congrats HC!

What happened this time around that was so much different than a couple of weeks ago?

Four games this week saw teams that lost by a lot a few weeks ago, turn around and win it this week. Conner, Scott, Dayton, and Holy Cross all got wins over teams who previously beat them by a lot. Just one of those weeks apparently, and as they say that’s why you play the game.

Holy Cross made some adjustments in their run defense to attempt to stop Kaiden Zulager.  Well, Kaiden still got his yards (123) and one TD.  In the second half, Lloyd went primarily with the Wildcat using Amari Riley to do pretty much anything he wanted to the tune of 136 yards and 2 TDs.  

The main difference was the Holy Cross offense.  In the last few games, the HC MO was run, run, run behind Lavarr Jones.  Lavarr got 71 yards and 2 TDs, but the real story was the return of the HC passing game.  QB Javier Ison had a big game - 11-17 for 252 yards and 2 TDs.  He also had a rushing TD.  WR Javier Ward was the recipient of those 2 TDs - the first was a 50-50 ball for 33 yards in the first quarter and the second was an electrifying 85 yard catch and run in the third quarter.  Coincidence that Javier Ward's uniform number is #1?????  Yes, Ward was doing the Griddy after the game!

Congrats to HC!

That has to feel really good for the players, thank you.

I would add that the Indians also had something like 7 turnovers in the first game.  Tonight they did not turn the ball over a single time.  That made huge difference.  Shout out to kicker Ian McDonald who hit all five PATs including a 35 years attempt after a penalty on the Indians. It was nice to see the boys have a little success.  It was the first time any of the players have won a playoff game.  Their last one was five years ago when they made their state semifinal run.
