The Hawks went into the Wolvarena Friday night looking to rewrite history, for they had never beaten Woodland Hills on their home turf.

Through four hard-fought quarters, the Hawks came out on top, 29-16.

After the game, Coach Delallo said: “This was a huge win for us, changing history, but this is just one step. Only one step closer to what we want to accomplish this year.”

On the opening drive of the game, the Hawks drove the ball down the field ending in a three-yard, goal-line touchdown by Jack Evans.

Woodland Hills then got the ball and marched down the field. They scored and completed the two-point conversion to put them up 8-7 in the 1st quarter.

The rest of the first half continued to be back and forth. Jehvonn Lewis added to the lead in the second quarter with a 36-yard run to make it 14-8 Hawks. Shortly after, Woodland Hills marched down the field, scored, and went for the two-point conversion to put the Wolverines up 16-14 going into halftime.

In the second half, the Wolverines did not see the endzone. The Hawk defense held the Wolverines to 142 yards of total offense in the whole game. In the 3rd quarter, the Bethel Park offense drove down the field ending in another Jack Evans goal-line run and a two-point conversion by Lewis. This put the Hawks up 22-16.

The defense of Bethel Park continued to stop Woodland Hills in the 4th quarter. The Hawks ran the clock down in the 4th quarter against a hopeless Woodland Hills defense and scored one final time with 1:33 left.

The Hawks (1-0) face the Indians of West Allegheny (1-0) Friday at the Nest at 7:30 p.m.
