The Huskies of Forest Hills Northern averaged 17 points per game last fall. In the first week of the season, they showed the ability to put up strong offensive numbers. FHN scored 48 points in its maiden voyage of the 2022 campaign against Wyoming. This was the largest offensive output by the Huskies since 2018.

In the first quarter, the offenses matched each other in the scoring column. Drew Dabaja got the Huskies started with a 1-yard touchdown plunge. Wyoming would answer back on a touchdown strike of their own, a 25-yard pass. This left the game knotted at 7 after one frame.

Wyoming would not find the endzone for the remainder of the contest. The final three quarters were all Huskies. Curt Andrews, the feature back a season ago, started his 2022 scoring tally with a touchdown run midway through the second quarter. This gave FHN a 14-7 halftime edge.

The third quarter saw a trio of scores by the Huskies. First, Logan Hertstein broke free through the Wolves’ defense, racing home on a 57-yard sprint to the end zone. On their next drive, Dabaja returned to the end zone on a 2-yard plunge. Finally, Alex Joseph stepped in front of a Wyoming pass and went untouched for the score.

Ahead 34-7, FHN would add two final touchdowns to their tally. Jayden Kotrch brought the lead to 34 points with his interception return. Drew Dabaja triggered the running clock with a 1-yard plunge with 75 seconds to play.

Despite winning by 41 points, FHN only outgained Wyoming 321-233. Logan Hertstein led the victors in passing (3/5 for 49 yards) and rushing (9 carries for 95 yards). Drew Dabaja split the quarterbacking with Hertstein, finishing with 41 yards passing and 52 yards on the ground. Chris Arrington spearheaded the Huskies defense with an 8-tackle performance.

Next week, Forest Hills Northern will look to move to 2-0 when they face Jenison. The Wildcats lost to Forest Hills Central in Week 1. Wyoming will look for their first win against Northview.
