’Canes drop close game

POSTED: April 19, 2013 9:45 a.m.

The Hinesville Hurricanes made a key fumble late in Saturday’s game to fall, 14-12, to the Georgia Knights at Long Bell Stadium .
Hurricanes coach James Sharp said it was a heartbreaker, considering his team had a chance for the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter but fumbled on the 1-yard line.
After being tied at 6 at halftime, the Knights scored a touchdown and made the 2-point conversion to go up 14-6. Hurricane running back Tracey Lewis, who scored a touchdown in the first half, took the ball downfield again for a touchdown. The ’Canes lined up for two, but the Knights stopped them shy of the goal line.
Defensively, the Hurricanes’ Chuck Crossley had two interceptions and Tank Rutherford had one.
The ’Canes (4-2) face the Georgia Pirates (5-0)  Saturday in Augusta.
