BEDFORD, TX – The Hawks took on Colleyville Covenant Christian in their season opener at H-E-B’s Pennington Field. Despite miscues on both sides, neither could take advantage as the first quarter ended scoreless. A long run by Covenant opened up the scoring, 7-0. From then on out, it was the Hawks’ game. Three touchdowns from senior receivers John Michael Kinsella, Danny Garda, and sophomore Sam Clay, plus a long drive from Covenant resulted in an 18-13 halftime score. The Hawks put the game away in the second half with another 3 touchdowns coming from Donovan Coronado (‘17), a second for Kinsella, and Harry Crutcher (‘19). While the offensive touted stars like Kinsella and junior quarterback Max Schieferdecker (31-51, 446 yards, 5 TDs), the defense’s stunning 5 takeaways- 3 FR, 1 INT, 1 onside kick recover, and constant quarterback pressure from senior defensive linemen Daniel Losson and Jack Mackenzie – propelled the Hawks to a 36-21 victory.
