Haskell High School
Quanah High School
Tribe Brings Home District Win
By: Michael Lindsey
The Tribe traveled to Quanah last Friday Night to do battle with another group of Indians. Quanah would jump out early leading the Haskell 15 to 8 at the end of the 1st quarter. Our Tribe would put up 10 unanswered points in the 2nd quarter giving Haskell an 18 to 15 lead at Halftime.
Haskell would put up 14 more points in the 3rd quarter, while Quanah scored 7 bringing the score to 32 to 22 at the end of Three. The Indians from Quanah wouldn’t go away though as they would shut out Haskell in the 4th quarter and put another 7 points on the board, but the clock would hit zero with Haskell bringing home a 32 to 29 victory.
Sr. QB Alec Roewe would account for every Touchdown throwing one through the air and running for 3 more, while carrying the ball 26 times for 145 yards and 3 TD’s. Speaking with Coach Benton over the weekend he had this to say about his team. “I knew my guys were not happy with the outcome of a week ago. They take pride in playing well and representing this community. With that said our approach was that of a team backed into a corner with a choice to make. That choice was evident all week. Very happy to see their efforts were rewarded. We had a chance to put Quanah away on several possessions in the forth quarter, and couldn’t do it for several reasons, mainly us. Proud of my guys for continuing to grind, staying together and finding a way to win.”
