Webb drops game after early lead

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

WHITE HOUSE -- It's not how you start, it's how you finish. That saying is a painful lesson the Webb Feet learned on Friday night. Webb's offense started hot, quickly answering Christian Community's 20-point first quarter with a 23-point second to take the lead 29-20 after the first half.

But the home team was able to bounce back and score 13 unanswered points to win the game 33-29.

CC takes off

Christian Community jumped out to the early lead with a 20-spot in the first quarter.

Webb avoided first-quarter shutout when quarterback Zach Fenner hit senior wide out Chase Hullett on a 13-yard touchdown pass.

While the first quarter was all Christian Community, Webb answered tenfold.

The Feet put 23 on the board in the second quarter to recapture the lead and the momentum heading into the half.

Feet explosion

Kicker Hunter Norris got things going for Webb when he split the uprights on a 10-yard field goal try with just over 10 minutes to play in the second quarter.

Houston Jones added a 40-yard punt return to Webb's cause, to bring the Feet closer to taking the lead.

While special teams came through in the first two scores of the second quarter, the Webb offense finished the half with a pair of scores to put Webb on top.

Alex Hulsey capped off a scoring drive with a 3-yard burst into the end zone, while Jones picked up his second TD of the night on a 17-yard scamper.

Lead disappears

While Webb had the momentum and the score on its side heading into the half, Christian Community just wouldn't go away, scoring 13 unanswered points in the second half to end Webb's season.

Fenner connected on 2-of-7 passing attempts for 46 yards and one touchdown with both passes being completed by Chase Hullet.

Hulsey carried the ball 23 times for 72 yards and a score while Jones had six carries for 60 yards.

Nick Tilton also had a productive night on the ground, accounting for 68 yards on just four carries.

Defensively, Chris Burgoon, Branson Popp and Tilton led the Feet with four tackles apiece.
