After ending Saturday’s game against the Middle Georgia Pit Bulls comfortably at 21-6, the Hinesville Hurricanes improved their regular-season record to 3-1. The home game was called due to lightning with less than two minutes left in regulation, helping the semi-professional football team put another check in the win column.
The Hurricanes were forced to punt on their first offensive drive but the Pit Bulls were called for roughing the kicker, giving the home team a new set of downs.
’Canes running back Kendrick Badger plowed through the opposing defense twice, moving the chains in the process and inching the Hurricanes closer to the Pit Bulls’ end zone. Quarterback Frank Troup hit Ed Smith in stride and brought the team to a first and goal. The Pit Bulls held the run and the ’Canes faced a fourth and goal, but Troup powered through the middle, scoring a touchdown.
Smith came in and kicked the extra point.
