Heritage breaks losing streak with region win

If ever there was a team in need of a victory, it was The Heritage School Hawks.

They got it Friday night, holding off visiting Westminster-Augusta 25-20 to break a threegame losing streak.

Brad Macke scored on touchdowns of 90 and 82 yards and also had an interception to help the Hawks to the win.

The victory was Heritage's (3-5 overall and 1-2 GISA2AAA) first in region play.

Macke also completed 14 passes for 221 yards.

The Heritage quarterback spread the wealth between three wide receivers.

Dalton Trammell, who is used mainly on defense, ran a handful of plays out of the wildcat formation Friday and scored one of the Hawks' touchdowns.

Cole Jones was Macke's favorite target, catching four passes for 110 yards.

Jones also stopped one of Westminster's drives with an interception.

Chaz Bankston caught two passes for 90 yards, including a touchdown.

Westminster built a 13-6 lead late in the first half, but Bankston's touchdown tied the game at 13 going into the break.

The Hawks took a 19-13 lead early in the third quarter when Trammell found the end zone on his score out of the Wildcat formation.

Heritage's trip into the end zone was set up on a long pass to Jones.

The Hawks took a 25-13 lead with 8:51 left in the third quarter when Macke kept the ball on the option and raced 82 yards down the sidelines for the score.

Westminster added one final touchdown, but a sack by Thomas Gruber and Jones' interception helped seal the win.

The Hawks close out the season with games at Tattnall Square and at home against rival Trinity.
