MORLEY — The Mohawks fell victim to the Eagles of Kent City on Friday night in a matchup of the CSAA Silver’s best.

“We started the game the way we wanted,” head coach Clark Huntey said. “We didn’t play disciplined football on the defensive side. We didn’t do our jobs and that cost us.”

After tying the game at 7-7, the Mohawks couldn’t muster up points and was unable to stop the Eagles’ attack.

“I was proud of our kids,” he said. “We moved the ball right down on them and got a tie game. Unintentional onside kid off the guy’s back and they got the football back. They scored a few times and our heads dropped and we’re done.”

The Mohawks tallied 138 yards of offense. Jason Bialik finished with 74 yards rushing and a touchdown and Callan Dillree added 28 yards.

The Mohawks (3-2, 2-1) face White Cloud next week.

“We’re losing a lot of players every night to major injuries,” he said. “We’re getting thin, fast. I don’t know if we can stay healthy the rest of the season or not, to be honest. It’s not looking good health-wise.

“But we’re going to continue to work and see what happens next week.”
