For the second straight year, HURT reaches the semifinals of the Lone Survivor tournament. While the end results may be the same, HURT made a statement by winning all three pool matches. Revenge was sweet as HURT shutout the Austin Blacks, who defeated HURT in the semi-finals last year, by blanking the D1 powerhouse 27-0 and dominated Fort Hood 41-12. However, the Woodlands avenged their loss to HURT from two weeks ago in the semifinals. Overall it was an extremely positive outcome for HURT. There were minimal injuries and new players received exposure to the game. HURT has shown that they are a force to be reckoned with.
From Coach Dan Green:
So proud to be HURT today. Keep your heads high. Huge win against one of the the best Div One teams in the country and just ran out of gas in overtime against The Woodlands in the semis. Enjoy a cold beer and an ice pack Gents, you’ve earned it.
