Last Tuesday night, September 28, 2021, the Henderson County North 6th graders played against Chester County’s 6th graders in a game.

Joseph Pritchard took the ball in from the 4-yard line to make the score 6-0. White would then connect with Pritchard on the two-point conversion for two more points and made the score 8-0.
The strong HCN defense would hold the Eagles again. The offense would take over on the 50-yard line and after a few strong runs, Webb White hit the tight end, Aviance Huddleston, for a 30-yard touchdown pass. White would then connect with Pritchard for another successful two-point conversion and the score would be 16-0, in favor of the Tigers. Another big stop by the Tigers’ defense gave HCN the ball again. This time, the Tigers would strike hard on the ground by mixing runs from Huddleston, Pritchard, and Akeem Cox.
