Hammond offense in step with defense

October 05, 1992|By Kevin Eck | Kevin Eck,Staff Writer

Hammond's offense finally caught up with its defense.

The Golden Bears had allowed just 24 points in their first four games. Their offense, however, had managed just 38 points.

But Hammond (4-1) dominated both sides of the ball against Mount Hebron Saturday. The defense recorded its third shutout, and the offense struck early and often en route to a 38-0 win.

Hammond scored touchdowns on its first three possessions and had taken a 22-0 lead after running only five plays.

The lone negative on an otherwise impressive performance for Hammond was that it committed 13 penalties for 110 yards. Two touchdowns were called back.

"We're rolling," Hammond wide receiver Kelvin Stevens said. "The only thing that could kill us is penalties."

Said Hammond coach Joe Russo: "What I like about our team is we're getting better every week, which is encouraging."
