The rain kept a coming and the folks of the CTYFL found out what we already know. HIPPO’S LOVE WATER!!! The kids rolled into Old Hippo Stadium and had a blast in the rain. The field held up great and all the kids had fun.

 

Midget Flag Division

Hustling Hippos vs. Manor Mustangs

Bye-week

 Fighting Hippos vs. Bastrop Bears

The Fighting Hippos were in their element as they took on the visiting Bastrop squad. With the rain falling the team had no trouble advancing the ball and making tackles. At the end of regulation the players were tired but happy with their game in the rain.

The Hippo Nation vs. Cap City Bearcats

Game rescheduled because of the rain. Due to field conditions the Nation will be playing this contest at the end of the year.

PeeWee Flag Division

Hustling Hippos   vs. Cap City Bearcats

Game rescheduled because of the rain. Due to field conditions the Hustling Hippos  will be playing this contest at the end of the year.

Fighting Hippos 6 vs. T&C North Warriors 20

The Hutto peewee flag fighting Hippos, had a game to remember this past Saturday, in which they faced the T and C warriors.  The game was a raining monsoon in which Hutto came up short losing 20-6.  When The Fighting Hippos were asked what they enjoyed about the game they replied, “we got to play in the mud like real hippos!” – Coach Dave Alderete

PeeWee Tackle Division

Hustling Hippos vs. Burnet Bulldogs

Game rescheduled because of the rain. Due to field conditions the Nation will be playing this contest at the end of the year.

Fighting Hippos 20 vs. Lampasas Badgers 0

The Fighting Hippos took on the Lampasas Blue Badgers.  “We struggled the first half, but came out strong in the second.”  With strong play by Jim May on both sides of the ball and key runs by Brody Bujnoch and Kenny Settles, the Hippos fought for the win.

“We had good blocking from our O-line with Richard Ridings taking on a strong rusher and our defense played really well.  Little Luke Adams was hard on their offensive line, he kept disrupting their backfield in the second half.” – Coach Kenny Settles

Rookie Division

Hutto Hippos 12 vs. SAO Scorpions 6

On a wet and muddy field the Hustling Hippo Rookie team took on the South Austin Optimist Scorpions.  The Hippos quickly took the lead when #22 Anthony Martinez hit pay dirt on a 25 yard run.  The Hippos stingy Defense Lead by #2 Xavier Valles, #15 Jesus Garza, #12 Felix Torres, #45 Colter Hill, #27 Michael Mason and #52 Darius “Cornbread” Aldridge held the Scorpions to a few yards allowing 1 td late in the 1st half.  Anthony Martinez scored on another 20 yard run as the Hippos held on for the win.  The parents, and Cheer leaders loudly supported and cheered the Rookies on, making the win much more enjoyable.” – Coach  David Valles

Junior Division

Hustling Hippos 0 vs. Round Rock Dragons 12

Staunch Defense and a grinding offense was the difference as the Dragons of Round Rock held the Hippos out of the end zone and wore the valiant Hutto defense down putting up two scores on a wet and muddy field. The Hutto squad fought hard and made the Dragons pay for every inch. “Team played great, our offense struggled to get going but defense kept us in the game. The defense was responsible for 3 forced turnovers but we were not able to capitalize on offense. Our breakout player this week was Juan Mora, he had a lot in his shoulders this past week and handled it great” – Coach Rodrick James

The Fighting Hippos 18 vs. Kyle Invaders 12

The Hutto Fighting Hippos Junior football team remained undefeated Saturday with a 18 to 12 victory over the Kyle Invaders South team. The Fighting hippos were led offensively by McKadein Ringer. Ringer scored the first points of the game on a 50 yard pass from quarterback Brock Bujnoch. Ringer’s second score came on a 60 yard kick off return after the Invaders tied the score. Bujnoch also completed a pass to Jackson Storm in the first half.

Tailback Jordan Phoenix scored the other Hippo touchdown on a 60 yard run in the second quarter. The Offensive line of Logan Tipton, Brian Lancaster, Jared Adams, Silas Perkins, Dylan Calhoun, and Trevor Forisha did and outstanding job of controlling the line of scrimmage during the game.  

The Hippo defense gave up an early touchdown to the Invaders, but adjusted well and did not allow another score until the very last play of the game. The defense was led by Brock Bujnoch who had numerous tackles and a fumble recovery on the Invaders initial possession of the game.

Trevor Forisha and Logan Tipton were involved in some keys stops by the Hippo defense. Noah Hanson, Ryland Hanson, and Jefferson Blackmon were part of the Hippo defensive line that held their own against a much larger Invader Offensive line. – Coach Bujnoch

The Hippo Nation 0 vs.

Bastrop Eagles 35

Despite moving the ball well on the ground, big plays by the Bastrop offense and a size disadvantage derailed the Hippo Nation Juniors on Saturday in rainy conditions at Old Hippo Stadium.  The final score did little to hamper the spirits of the Hutto team as they fought hard to the final horn. “One thing I have learned about this team is that no matter what the score, there effort never stops.

The best part of the day was the end of the game where instead of talking about the score, all the kids could talk about was how much fun they had playing in the rain and how covered they were in mud.  Not one of the guys even cared what the score was.” – Coach Colin Sanford

Senior Division

Hustling Hippos 41 vs. Georgetown Patriots 20

Bye week

Fighting Hippos 0 vs.

SAO Scorpions 38

The weather was not a factor as the valiant Fighting Hippos ran into a juggernaut in their game against The SAO Scorpions. The Hippos didn’t give up nor give in against the odds and proved that they have what it takes to stand up and not quit in the face of adversity.

Even in defeat the kids proved that they didn’t have any quit in them playing all the way through without giving up. They did the community proud and their fans proud.

 Again hats off to the Hutto Parks and Recreation Department. The field at Old Hippo Stadium was in great shape. Make sure and visit www.HYFCA.com for the season schedule.

This weekend is homecoming, as the kids of the HYFCA play at the big field. Games will start at 9:00 a.m. and go all day so come see the future of Hutto Football.
