Lions crush Bears 60-6

The Mount Ida Lions earn their first win of the victory in a big way with a 60-6 victory over the Spring Hill Bears.

The beleaguered Bears and Lions both entered the game without a win. Coach Zack Wuichet shook things up by moving senior Seth Breashears to quarterback. Mount Ida scored early and often with Hunter Davis crossing the goal line for the first two touchdowns.

John Hoeksema was a scoring machine, scoring three times in the first half, one on the ground and two in the air, to help the Lions to a 40-6 halftime lead. Mount Ida was able to score three times in the second half to claim the win.

See next week’s issue of the Montgomery County News for a full recap and statistics from the game.
