Cats down Homer

Posted: Friday, August 31, 2001

The Skyview High School football team took advantage of a Homer mistake early, then hung on to defeat the Mariners 13-7 Thursday in a Northern Lights Conference game at Homer.

Skyview's Mark McGarry recovered a Homer fumble early in the game and advanced it 8 yards for the first touchdown of the game. Skyview place kicker Jamie Beever tacked on the extra point for a 7-0 lead.

Homer tied the game in the second quarter when Mariners quarterback Aaron Smith connected with Tom Crandle for a 30-yard scoring strike. David Drake added the extra point.

Adam Kosydar scored what proved to be the winning touchdown late in the third quarter on a 1-yard plunge.

The extra point attempt failed, but Skyview's defense was able to hold the Mariners' offense scoreless through the second half.

Smith led all rushers with 56 yards on 17 carries while teammate Luke Roberts picked up 45 yards on 11 carries.

Travis Endsley picked up 41 yards on 12 carries to lead the Panthers.

Skyview is now 1-0 in NLC play and 3-1 overall. Homer was tagged with its first loss of the season and is now 0-1 in the NLC and 3-1 overall.
