St. Helena came out and looked pretty good early in the game, but turnovers and costly mistakes allowed the STA Falcons to take control of the game and put things out of reach, well before the first half horn sounded.
St. Helena coughed the ball up four times in the first half alone, and the STA Falcons would capitalize on all the turnovers, turning them into points for the home team. STA went on a long drive and took a 7-0 lead early in the game.
The Hawks responded with a nice drive and appeared to be heading to the end zone to try and tie the game, but a St. Helena fumble halted the drive, allowing the Falcons to scoop up the loose ball and turn it into a 74-yard fumble return to go up 14-0.
The Hawks then had a punt blocked which was recovered in the end zone to go up 22-0, and from there, the game got out of control for the Hawks. STA would extend their lead to 36-0 late in the first half, before the Hawks could muster up a score.
St. Helena did get on the scoreboard later in the half when quarterback Robert Trout tossed a 14-yard touchdown strike to Ryan Byrd to cut the lead to 36-6, but the Falcons added a late field goal and went into the locker room up 39-6.
The Falcons added another field goal in the second half, and they went on to win the game 42-6. The Hawks are now 0-7 on the season, and they will play host to Pope John Paul this Friday night in district 8-2A action.
