    Hennessey Eagles

One week after being nearly unstoppable, Hennessey’s offense went back into a shell as the Eagles stayed winless this season.

Perry’s Mason Drake threw for seven touchdowns on his home turf and the Maroons defense put the clamps on HHS in a 58-0 victory last Friday night.

Against Alva a week ago, the Eagles racked up 49 points and 692 total yards.

Perry, though, was having none of it.

The Maroons limited the Eagles the six first downs and 112 yards of offense.

Aweekafterthrowing for a school-record 500 yards, Cole Joyce was held to 51 and was picked off three times.

The Eagles rushing game was held to 61 yards on 32 carries.

Meanwhile, Hennessey’s defense could do little to stop Drake.

The senior quarterback was 18 of 22 for 256 yards to go along with the touchdown tosses.

Seven different Maroons caught passes.

Wyatt Boyd hauled in seven of them for 84 yards and four touchdowns.

Brody Harbour caught three TDs out of his five receptions. He hauled in 95 yards worth of passes.

Perry also got 166 yards on the ground and averaged 6.6 yards per carry.

The Maroons did their damage early as they were up 23-0 after a quarter and 37-0 by halftime.

Keigen Crites was Hennessey’s top rusher with 34 yards on 12 attempts. Joyce added another 28 yards on seven carries.

Brysn Hunt caught three passes for 40 yards and also led the team with 14 tackles.

Kaden Hawk added another eight tackles.

Hennessey is 0-5 overall and 0-2 in District 2A-1. Perry improved to 4-1 and 1-1.

The Eagles host Luther (5-0, 1-0) at 7 p.m. Friday.

Hennessey was 0-5 entering last year’s contest against the Lions and got their first win of the season, 28-22. The Eagles also beat Luther, 21-20, in the first round of the 2017 playoffs.
