On Friday, September 11th at the 50th annual Milk Can game at Fortuna High, the Huskies put a throttle to the Ferndale Wildcats. The Huskies came into the ball game without a loss, beating both North Medford and Wheatland. On the other hand, Ferndale came into Fortuna with a 1-1 record, defeating Trinity High, but losing to Valley Christian High. Nevertheless, you would have thought that the game would be a fierce competition between the Big 5 host Fortuna and the Little 4 guest Ferndale.
Fortuna proved to be just too much however, as they took control from the first moments of the game. Senior halfback Dante V. led with way with 98 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns. Dante's touchdowns were a explosive punt return and a 25 yard dash to the goal. Sophomore Fullback Churchman C. also had a great game with 92 yards rushing and 2 touchdowns.
Along with a great offense, the Husky defense came into play as well. Senior Ben F. had an interception to offset an early Husky turnover, a real key to the momentum swing that Fortuna gathered and never looked back on. Also, the Huskies contained both the pass and the run and allowed a mere 6 points to Ferndale, which is small in comparison to Fortuna’s 41.
