Three turnovers, three miss field goals, a kickoff return TD called, and two 1st and Goal situations called back as part of Hendersonville’s 6 penalties would be too costly in this contest. HHS would get the ball first and methodically drive down the field on an 11 play scoring march that was highlighted with runs by #10 Ellis Ellis and #11 Luke Manning along with receptions by #3 Keion Stafford and Ellis. #8 Brent Rowe would find the endzone with a 1-yard run as the COMMANDOS took an early 7-0 lead at Beech. The Black & Gold defense would then force a quick 3 & out to give HHS the ball back. Hendersonville would look to add to their lead before a run by #7 David Johnson inside the 5-yard line would be called back due to penalty forcing HHS to attempt a 53-yard field goal that would be short. The Buccaneers would then get going on offense as they moved the ball down the field on the ground eventually scoring to tie the game with a 35-yard run. Hendersonville would fumble the ensuing kickoff setting BHS up with the ball at the HHS 17-yard line. After a couple of plays, the Buccaneers would take the lead with a 2-yard run. Hendersonville would go 3 & out on the next possession but then #35 Stevie Mack would come up with an interception that he would return into Beech territory. As time ran down on the 1st half, HHS would miss their 2nd field goal of the night leaving the score at 7-14 at halftime. Beech would get the ball to begin the 2nd half and after a 1st down run, #13 Jack Brown would have an interception that he would return inside the 20-yard line. However, the COMMANDOS would blow this scoring opportunity by missing another field goal. Beech would extend their lead on the next possession, but HHS would answer with a 54-yard TD run by Jack Brown that made the score 14-21. HHS would force a 3 & out, but again a mistake would take a chance to tie away from the COMMANDOS as they would fumble the punt. Beech would take advantage with another TD run. On the ensuing kickoff, Ellis would return it 92 yards for a TD, but once again the COMMANDOS would be hurt with penalty. The teams would trade punts before HHS would get the ball deep in Buccaneer territory, but an interception would allow BHS to run the clock out with the score 14-28. Hendersonville, now 2-2 on the season, will be back at Memorial Stadium next Friday night for the 2020 Homecoming game as they will take on Region 4-6A foe Lebanon. The homecoming ceremony will begin at 6:30 with kickoff for the game scheduled for 7:00.
