Two first-half fourth down defensive stops and a second quarter interception by Holley kept Attica from expanding its lead, but Mason Compton scored twice on the first two possessions as Attica won 35-0 in a high school football matchup.

After Compton’s two scoring runs, Attica turned the ball over on downs during their next possession as Hawks senior linemen Glenn Thrower and Brandon Dillenbeck combined on the fourth down stop at the Hawks 26 yard-line.

The defense rallied again just minutes later with another fourth down stop at their own 19 yard line to open the second quarter.

Attica scored to extend its lead to 21-0, but Holley senior Jeremy Mallett stopped the next drive with an interception inside the Hawks’ five-yard line to end the first half.

Attica hit the upright with a field goal attempt on their first offensive possession of the second half, but scored on their next two possessions sandwiching a 14-play Holley offensive drive highlighted by a fake punt for a first down by Camron Labarge and a 12-yard run from Nicholas Schutz.

Two lost fumbles on kickoff returns kept the Holley offense off the field and the defense forced to lay extra minutes, though Attica did not score on either possession despite starting both in Hawks territory.

Freshman Jacob Affronti unofficially led Holley with 62 yards rushing while Schutz added 23 yards on the ground. Labarge added a 22-yard kickoff return to his fake punt first down.
