Harper football falls to Ingram
By Danny Hirt —
After falling behind early, Harper spent the rest of the night in an unsuccessful bid to catch up as it dropped a 35-33 decision to visiting Ingram last Friday night in high school football action.
Even a 26-7 fourth quarter surge by the Longhorns could not completely cover an earlier deficit.
Harper (2-1) will try to return to its winning ways Friday, Sept. 20, when the ’Horns travel to Sonora. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Ingram 35, Harper 33
In a game that saw both teams totaling 335 yards in penalties on 35 flags, the Longhorns simply could not get their rhythm flowing as they saw Ingram’s Omar Renteria bull his way over from one and three yards out in the opening period to give the Warriors a 14-0 lead.
Renteria led all rushers with 186 ground yards on 30 carries on the night. He also managed a five-yard run in the second stanza.
Briley Jalowy picked up 66 yards on 15 carries for HHS.
Jayden Baumann put Harper on the scoreboard when he powered the ball over the goal line with 10:46 remaining in the second. Jalowy’s point-after attempt was good, pulling the Longhorns to within seven, 14-7.
