Skyline Football Dominates Huron

October 12, 2017

The rainy, humid, and hot Friday was accompanied by a blow out at Skyline High School. On Oct. 6, the Skyline Eagles welcomed their cross-town rivals, the Huron River Rats, to the “Eagle Nest”.

Going into this game, Skyline was 1-5 and Huron had yet to win a game. Friday was also Skyline’s senior night.

From the beginning of the game, Skyline dominated on both ends of the field. The Skyline offensive line was stopping the Huron pass rush in their tracks. This allowed junior running back, Miles Miller, to run for over 100 yards.

Darryn Davis, senior quarterback, played his best game this season. Throwing for four touchdowns, numerous long throws down the field and well over 200 yards. With thanks to the offensive line, Davis was not sacked once.

At halftime, the score was 28-0 Skyline.

Huron could not generate any offense. Skyline forced two turnovers and only allowed six first downs in the first half. Even without Skyline’s middle linebacker Davion Pipkins, who was out with an injury, Cameron Donell, Huron’s quarterback was under pressure all night.

The final score was Skyline High School: 41, Huron High School: 0.

This win brings Skyline’s season record to 2-5 and Huron’s to 0-7. Saline is in shape to take home the district title with a 6-1 record after beating Pioneer 49-7 on October 6.  Huron will finish the season with Chelsea at Chelsea and Flat Rock, home. Skyline’s last games are Pinckney at home and Dearborn, away.

Neither team will make it to districts but both have their respective Homecoming games on Oct. 13 for Skyline and Huron’s on Oct. 20.
