BRIDGE CITY —
Ashton Hunter was sitting at 995 yards on the year and was on the sideline when Hardin-Jefferson took over with 2:16 left on the clock Friday night.
Hunter had just scored on a two-yard run to give the Cardinals a 13-0 lead and it seemed it would be another week’s wait until the Bridge City running back could try for 1,000 yards.
The Hawks only ran five plays and the Cardinals got the ball back in time for Hunter to get his yards and Bridge City held off Hardin-Jefferson 13-0 at Larry B. Ward Stadium.
Hunter now has 1,010 yards on the year and the Cardinals are 3-1 in District 21-3A play with games against West Orange-Stark and Orangefield left on the schedule.
