In a match-up of two undefeated teams that had both racked up some pretty good point totals in their first two games of the season, only one of those was able to continue that trend when the Kee football team hosted Easton Valley Friday, September 11. The host Hawks were able to pretty much stand toe-to-toe with the State Play-Off qualifying River Hawks from last season, but allowed Easton Valley 34 unanswered points in the game’s second quarter that fueled the 54-14 Kee defeat.

“We didn’t answer the bell tonight,” Kee football coach Chad Winters said. “When they got the momentum rolling in the second quarter, we couldn’t step up and stop them. We continued to have miscues that allowed them to blow the game open. Little things become big things on a football field and we didn’t do many of the little things right tonight. We did a poor job at the point of attack by not attacking and staying on blocks. We allowed ourselves to stay blocked on defense resulting in giving up a couple big plays. We have to be better in all phases of the game going forward.”
