Hodag football season begins with loss
Mike Webster stadium was the site of the first Hodag football game of the season Friday. Tomahawk was the opponent, a team the Hodags defeated 32-0 last year and hoped to repeat the result.
Tomahawk had other things in mind as they took a 7-0 lead into half time. The Hodags scored off the second half kickoff when Brendon Eckrich ran it back 75 yards for a touchdown to tie the score at seven.
Tomahawk, though, would score two more touchdowns and a field goal before the Hodags could score with 8:11 left in the game. Tomahawk added another field goal to make the final score 27-13, giving the Hodags their first loss of the season. The next game is Aug. 26 in Denmark.
