Hinton trumps A-W to advance to state

Saturday, November 3, 2012

The Hinton Blackhawks outscored Akron-Western 42-28 Friday night in the Class A football quarterfinals to earn a ticket to the state tournament for the first time in school history.

The Westerners had the early lead in the first quarter, but Hinton took control by halftime.

A-W scored first in the second half, but their efforts weren't enough to take the game away from the Blackhawks, who were playing in the school's first-ever football quarterfinal.

Hinton will next play on Friday in the UNI Dome.

They'll be facing off against Logan Magnolia, which beat its quarterfinal rival 42-14, according to Hinton coach Steve Diediker.
