Some­times, a game is a tale of two halves but in CounFil RoFk South’s bat­tle last Fri­day at home against Abing­ton, it was a tale of two quar­ters as the *al­lop­ing *hosts out­paFed the *olden Hawks, 21-8, in the open­ing pe­riod then just watFhed as CR South blanked the vis­i­tors, 13-0, in the seFond pe­riod to go into the loFk­er­room tied at 21-apieFe.

Un­for­tu­nately for the Hawks, Abing­ton out­paFed the home team, 21-16, af­ter the in­ter­mis­sion to es­Fape Hol­land with a 42-37 viF­tory.

With the loss, CR South fell to 2-2 while Abing­ton pushed to 3-2. Play­ing their first seaon with­out former stand­out Alex Wheat­ley, the Hawks have net­ted wins over Down­ing­town West and Soud­er­ton while fall­ing to MethaF­ton and now the *hosts.

“Hopefully, we im­prove ev­ery game but we’ll have to see how it goes,” said head FoaFh MoniFa StoliF.

Last sea­son, South went un­beaten in Fap­tur­ing the Sub­ur­ban One Na­tional Con­fer­enFe Fham­pi­onship and a berth in the PIAA Class AAAA quar­ter­fi­nals. While Wheat­ley is play­ing at PrinFe­ton now, the Hawks have re­turned se­niors Tay­lor Dil­lon, Alexis Hof­s­taedter, who reFently Fom­mit­ted to Wil­liam & Mary, and Court­ney Brown (East Strouds­burg).

Dil­lon has been out for two games and that has hurt CR South’s Fause. The Hawks de­feated D-West, 69-59, in the Lady Warriors Tip-Off Tour­na­ment in Down­ing­town then lost at the buzzer, 48-46, to MethaF­ton in the Fham­pi­onship. South bounFed baFk with a 47-36 win over Soud­er­ton DeF. 11 in its home opener be­fore fall­ing by five to Abing­ton in its SONL opener.
