The Flint Hill football team posted another dominant victory Saturday, defeating Maret 62-21 for its fifth straight win.
The Huskies jumped to a healthy lead early, scoring three touchdowns in the first quarter — a 19-yard run from Connor Chess, 27-yard run from Cameron Vaughn and a 12-yard pass from Stevie Peterson to Cole Herdman.
Jerrod Reed added a 3-yard touchdown run in the second quarter before the Frogs posted their first points. After Vaughn ran in his second touchdown of the day, the Frogs scored again. But the Huskies added two more touchdowns — a 75-yard interception return from Basil Nkenchor and 16-yard reception from Ben Kase to put the score at 49-21 heading into halftime.
The momentum slowed in the second half, with the Huskies adding two more touchdowns — on 49- and 2-yard runs from Vaughn and Justin Saleh, respectively. The Frogs posted one more touchdown for the last points of the game to put the final score at 62-21.
Peterson kicked all seven of his extra-point attempts successfully. Kody Kettle went 1 for 2 in extra point attempts, the second of which was blocked by the Frogs' defense.
