Red Hawks football team battle Mustangs tough

Submitted by Judi Paul

The following are HHSS sports briefs for the week ending Oct. 6.

The senior boys’ football team travelled to Peterborough on Tuesday Oct. 4 to take on the stampeding Crestwood Mustangs. Short-staffed and banged up the Red Hawks challenged Crestwood in an action-packed contest. Great effort senior Red Hawks.

On Tuesday Oct. 4 the girls’ varsity rugby team travelled to Adam Scott to play against Campbellford. The girls battled hard until the last whistle but ended up down by just one try. The final score was 7-12 and the game was the team’s best performance this season. Shout-out to Kailynn Sikma for her second straight try.

A day after our cross-country team had another great day at a huge meet in Port Hope. Isaac Little led the team with a 17th place finish. Ryan Manning also had a solid race finishing ahead of more than 400 runners.  Congratulations team.
