Canes suffer first loss
football large

The Hinesville Hurricanes dropped their first game of the season Saturday at Long Bell Stadium.
Hosting the Jacksonville Blackhawks, the ’Canes battled but lost 18-12.

Hurricane head coach James Sharp said the teams have developed an intense rivalry. He said his defense stood tough, but noted that when a rivalry is as heated as it is between these teams, one mistake can be the turning point in a game.

The ’Canes beat the Blackhawks earlier this season when they first met, but a few dropped passes and errors made the difference in the outcome Saturday.

The Hurricanes are still the top seed in the Universal Football league. The ’Canes are currently 5-1.

The ’Canes have a bye week now and return to the gridiron March 26 in St. Augustine, taking on the Putman Steelers.
