Huskies defeat Trojans for second straight win
Fife Lake–The Atlanta football team got off to its first 2-0 start since 1992 with a 28-14 victory over Fife Lake Forest Area on Thursday in Fife Lake.
Austin Corbin led the Huskies in passing and Reece Wood led them in rushing, but it was the defensive line that did most of the damage to help get the job done.
“Our entire team played a great game tonight, but particular the guys on the defensive line up front,” Atlanta coach Troy Cheedie said. “All of those guys played their tales off. The turning point in the game was probably in the fourth quarter when we got a stop and went down and scored to turn a one possession game into a two possession game. It had been a one possesion game all night and that kind of turned the tide for us to help us get the win.”
Atlanta plays at Wyoming Tri-unity Christian next Saturday.
