HOLLY SPRINGS -- The Holly Springs and Heritage High football teams opened the 2012 season hoping for a sunnier outlook than they had in 2011, when the young schools combined for just five wins.
Their only problem Friday was that the weather didn’t cooperate with these brighter attitudes, as continued lightning and rain postponed the season opener to Saturday. They were nearly through the first quarter Friday before the weather put a stop to things.
Both teams came out of the gates well Saturday, but the Golden Hawks defense dominated in the second half to help propel Holly Springs to a 29-14 victory.
“This morning we came in and just had to focus and get out there and play,” said first-year Holly Springs head coach Will Orbin. “We just needed to have a warrior mindset and overcome that adversity.”
The Golden Hawks limited the Huskies to 29 yards passing for the second half, and just 22 rushing yards the entire game.
Holly Springs senior quarterback Brett Hudspeth threw for 157 yards and two touchdowns, both to classmate Evan Allen (six receptions for 57 yards), while Kelvin Wilson added a rushing score and Tyler Shade kicked two short field goals of 22 and 21 yards.
