Pats eliminated in sectional opener

By Herald Staff

Heritage Hills fell, 21-10 in Friday's Sectional 32 opener at the Jungle.

The Patriots (4-6) welcomed Gibson Southern, and played a closer game than the 38-0 loss Sept. 25. They jumped out to a 7-0 lead after a 3-yard touchdown run by sophomore Shane Staples, with junior Ethan Hill booting the extra point through the uprights, but the Titans grabbed the lead — and for good, in the second quarter. Junior quarterback Brady Allen had a passing and rushing touchdown each, and he added another rushing score in the fourth quarter. The only other score Heritage Hills mustered was a 41-yard field goal by Hill in the fourth quarter before Allen's second touchdown run. Gibson Southern will take on Southridge Oct. 30.
