South’s seventh and eighth grade football teams just couldn’t get a break Thursday at Apache Field.

Neither team reached the end zone in a pair of losses to the Hawks.

The bad day started early for the seventh graders. Abe Hubert jumped out to a 16-0 lead midway through the first quarter.

When the Apache offense attempted to get to the outside on a sweep, Abe Hubert had more defenders and dropped the South running backs for losses.

South did keep the Abe Hubert offense out of the end zone before half by faking a punt and running the final few seconds off the clock.

By that time, South already railed 30-0.

The Apaches slowed down the Hawks in the second half but could not get a score in the 46-0 loss.

The eighth grade played a physical game against Abe Hubert with big hits on both sides.

But a 12-0 contest through three quarters got away from the Apaches in the fourth.

Abe Hubert added two late touchdowns for a 25-0 victory over South.

The Apaches will make the cross-town drive to play the Warriors at Redskin Field Thursday. Games begin at 5 p.m.
