Hialeah knows it must put together complete performances like it had Wednesday night if it’s to make it back to the playoffs this season.
Running back Henry Bussey ran for 114 yards, quarterback Alin Edouard passed for 114 yards and the T-Breds defense posted a shutout in a dominant 34-0 victory over Reagan at Ted Hendricks Stadium.
Hialeah (3-1, 1-0 District 13-8A) won its second consecutive game following a loss to Southwest that had many wondering whether it would fall short of expectations this season.
The T-Breds did not make the playoffs last season after many thought they would win their district at the start of the season. Hialeah has entered this season with similar expectations and arguably the most talented team in the district.
“This was one of the best defensive performances we’ve had since I’ve been coaching here,” Hialeah coach Marc Berman said. “[The Southwest loss] definitely hurt us because we were up 19-10 in the fourth quarter and Southwest came back and deserved to win that game. I think our kids learned a good lesson and as we go further into district play I think it will pay off.”
Hialeah’s defense was dominant throughout the game, holding the Bison (2-2, 0-1) to 82 total yards and only three first downs.
Bussey was a part of three long scoring plays and excelled as both a rushing and receiving threat.
Edouard found Bussey open down the middle for a 60-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to put Hialeah in front, 7-0.
Bussey later had touchdown runs of 40 and 33 yards to help the T-Breds pull away.
“I tell you there are some great backs in this county, including those two guys at Central to name a couple, but we feel like we have a pretty good one here ourselves,” Berman said. “I hope colleges get on him and realize what he can do.”
Hialeah’s special teams came up with a highlight late as well, blocking a punt that senior Jermaine Sheriff recovered in the end zone.
