"I really thought he would get one or two big plays, he's a great athlete and a track star, but we just dominated all night," Coach Dustin Nichol said regarding his team's containment of the Hawks star.

When senior Colton Holley, delivered a punishing hit on defense to force a Hawk fumble in the first half, he in- jured his shoulder and was forced to leave the game. His status for next week is still uncertain. "It really hurts us losing a play- er like Colton" Nichol said after the game. The night was the Huskies' f?om= start to finish and after a dominating performance what else could have made the night any better? Eighty burgers from the Cedar Shack is what. The team was reward' ed for the big win with mouthfuls of burgers from the locally owned shop to cap off a great win and maybe even start its own burger tradition in light of the Oregon State Beavers' In and Out visits. The Huskies offense seems to be clicking on all cylinders scoring an average of 55 points a game over the last four games in route to a five game win streak that they will put on the line this week in Junction City. The Tigers are 3-4 overall and 1-2 in league after losses to Sisters and Cottage Grove, the latter a 62-6 pounding last Thursday in which, like Sweet Home's win, the now-No. 3 Lions scored on offense, defense and special teams.
