East Hamilton blanks East Ridge to open region play with a win
East Hamilton and East Ridge opened Region 2-4A play Friday night at East Hamilton High School as both looked to set the tone for the rest of their 2019 season.
An early fumble by the Hurricanes looked to even things out, but they quickly marched right back down the field as Haynes Eller would find Cade Meeks for the score to make it 7-0 East Hamilton.
The 'Canes would add another score before the half to take a 14-0 lead into halftime.
The flood gates would open in the second half as East Hamilton would score on their second offensive play of the 3rd quarter, Eller to Meeks again to go up 21-0.
A fumbled snap on an attempted East Ridge punt would set the Hurricanes up again.
Adam Caudle would score two of his three touchdowns in the second half en route to a 35-0 region win for the 'Canes. A dominant defensive performance.
East Hamilton will welcome Red Bank next week. The Pioneers will take a week off before they head to Sequatchie Co in two weeks.
