  • Turnovers doom Hickman early against Helias Posted on 5 September 2020 at 3:16pm

    COLUMBIA - Hickman went into Friday's game hoping to protect home turf and register and its first win of the season. The Kewpies, coming off of a rough week one 63-21 loss to Francis Howell, hoped to have a different fate this week, but Helias had other plans en route to a 68-18 victory. 

    Helias won the coin toss but chose to defer and kick to the Kewpies. Coach Cedric Alvis had said earlier in the week that the focal point for Hickman's offense was ball security. Hickman managed to successfully hold onto the pigskin for one snap before fumbling the ball the very next play. Helias scored from there with little trouble to record its first six points. While the Kewpies managed to block Helias' extra point attempt, it was all downhill from there.
