Hughson– Defense led the way in Hughson’s 21-3 victory over Argonaut.

The small-school No. 9 Huskies had to make some adjustments after losing star running back Carlos Arreola (knee) in a 27-24 loss to Orestimba last week.

Hughson’s Dray Beltran kicked off the scoring in the second quarter with a 7-yard rushing touchdown. The Mustangs later responded with a 29-yard field goal by Wyatt Elmore to draw Hughson’s lead to four. Hughson was not done as Steven Morris threw a 39-yard passing touchdown to Chase Shears to give the Huskies a 14-3 lead.

“It was a great team win for us after coming off that loss last week at Orestimba,” said Hughson wide receiver, Shears. “We knew we had to step up as a whole after Arreola went down last week.”

Steven Morris sealed the win in the fourth quarter with a 3-yard quarterback keeper. Shears had 94 yards of total offense, including 43 on the ground and another 51 through the air.

“We played like warriors all week long,” said Hughson head coach, Shaun King. “Last week was a tough loss, but we came together as a defense and were like those old purple people eaters.”

Hughson travels up the mountains to Summerville next Friday, while Argonaut ventures into the Bay Area to face Stellar Prep.
