Branson too strong for South Fork

The South Fork Cubs fell 72-28 at Branson in eight person football on Saturday.

The Cubs had a rough day defending the pass, as the home team put up seven TDs through the air to go with three on the ground.

The heat and injuries didn’t help matters for the Cubs, who dropped to 2-2.

There were some bright spots despite the loss, most notably the continued good play from Alex Harding.

The junior standout has been in sensational form for South Fork this season and scored all four touchdowns in Saturday’s loss, two on runs and two on receptions.

Harding finished with 125 yards receiving on three catches, to go with 107 yards rushing on 10 carries.

He also had an interception, which he returned 35 yards.

Sean Hassall-Hoss threw the TD passes.

“I felt our line did okay, but we didn’t have a good day tackling,” head coach Karl Terrell said. “And we got hurt in the secondary.”

The Cubs will try to get back on track when they host Stuart Hall next weekend.
