Hillcrest v.s Hunter


Friday the 13th is a big deal for everyone who believes it but it wasn’t a good excuse to not go to a football game at Hillcrest High School. Hillcrest competed against Hunter High in the second to last game of the season. The huskies lost 56-7, disqualifying them from the playoffs.

“The whole team has been practicing for each game four days a week with team video on Saturday’s,” said assistant coach Josh Griffel. “The husky football team has been doing this ever since January of this year.”

Seniors Keala Mahe, Ezra Moleni, as well as junior Brody Roemmich were all pumped for this game “Everyone has their own thing to do, to get ready for the big game,” said Mahe.

The team worked incredibly hard to prepare for the last game of the season, but even more effort was put in after recent times of struggle.

“It’s been a struggle lately with everything that’s happened this year, including when Coach Brown passed away it’s hit hard on all of us,” said Moleni.

The pink out game on October 13th is especially special for those who battle breast cancer.

“It’s becoming a tradition not just for Hillcrest but for football in general for the month of October to be breast cancer awareness so high schools tend to pick at least one game to be a pink out game. To draw awareness for all those who battled this serious condition,” said coach Griffel.

The October 13th game Huskies competed against Hunter High school and lost 56-7.
