Travis Pittman rushed for 89 yards and two touchdowns, but Horizon Christian couldn’t stop Skipstone Christian’s rushing attack in a 35-13 loss Saturday at Bennett Park.
The Warriors (2-4, 1-1) allowed 288 yards and four touchdowns on the ground as Skipstone wore down Horizon’s defense in the second half.
“The defense just could not stop their rushing attack and it wore us down in the second half,” Horizon head coach Charles Wiggins said. “
Horizon led 13-21 with 10.6 seconds left in the first half as the Warriors’ defense did enough to keep Horizon in the game. James Kimbrough finished with 11 tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks. Michael Walker had nine tackles.
But Skipstone scored on a 25-yard touchdown pass before halftime to take an 18-13 lead, and Horizon couldn’t recover.
