KLTV 7 Sports Spotter Report: Spring Hill

Spring Hill Panthers Report

Spring Hill 31, Pleasant Grove 28

Next Game: Spring Hill vs. Chapel Hill @ CH- 7:30


Spring Hill went into Friday's game expecting to get a win against Pleasant Grove despite not having their two top halfbacks, seniors Demikel Shankle and Cody Hendricks. Both were out with injuries. Sophomore Jake Fudge would be Spring Hill's primary back for the game, sharing duties with senior Travis Vickery. Fudge finished up with 211 yards on 30 carries, scoring three touchdowns, including a 63-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Spring Hill quarterback Chris Lee also had an impressive game, going 11-of-18 for 201 yards and one passing touchdown to Vickery. Pleasant Grove tailback Trey Reed, who ran for 253 yards against the Panthers last year, finished with 228 yards on 17 carries. Vickery led the Panthers in receiving with five receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. Spring Hill's only problem of the night was their penalties. They finished up with 17 penalties that accounted for 149 yards. Pleasant Grove also had penalty troubles, getting 16 for 120 yards.

There were no major injuries in the game. Panthers defensive end Nelson Walters was shaken up in the third quarter, and was on crutches the rest of the game, but will play in Friday's game against Chapel Hill. Tailbacks Demikel Shankle and Cody Hendricks are both questionable for the game. Jake Fudge, who has proven he can make big plays, will remain the starting tailback if neither plays.

This week Spring Hill will travel to Chapel Hill, who won 40-16 last week against Quinlan Ford, giving them an overall record of 1-2.  The game is set for 7:30 Friday night at Bulldog Stadium. Address is 111 Bulldog Drive in Chapel Hill, Texas.
