Tomahawk could not slow down the Northstars run game as they tallied 436-yards in the 47-8 nonconference tilt in Hurley Friday.
Their ground game was so dominant that they only needed to attempt two passes in the game after jumping out to a 21-0 lead at the end of quarter one. They would put 20 more points on the scoreboard in the second to take the big lead into the half.
Tomahawk’s only score on the night came in the fourth quarter, as Ryan ??? Skees busted a 20-yard touchdown to paydirt to avoid the shutout. The two-point conversion was good as ???? Cox caught the pass.
Coming off a big homecoming game win against Rib Lake/Prentice the week prior, Tomahawk struggled with turnovers as they turned the ball over four times including three on the ground and were picked off once.
Logan Bishop led the Hatchets’ ground attack with 65 yards on 11 touches. Quarterback Bode Imm was 3-for-9 on the night for 36 yards and Kade Wenninger led the Hatchets in catches with one grab for 26 yards.
Next on the schedule, Tomahawk travels to Marathon for a Marawood Conference tilt that begins at 7 p.m. Last year the Hatchets won the conference tilt by two points in their first win over the Red Raiders in over a decade.
