Freedom 49, Windsor 0: Freedom ran it record to 2-0 in a game that was every bit as one-sided as the score indicates. The Falcons led 42-0 at halftime and scored 21 points off the six turnovers by Windsor, which was playing its first game.
Freedom intercepted five passes and recovered a fumble. One of the interceptions was returned for a touchdown by Baylei Coston. The defense was dominant for Freedom, holding Windsor to 10 rushing yards in the first half, coach Kevin Hartwig said.
As for the extreme heat, Hartwig said it wasn’t a factor.
“I thought it was hotter in Turlock last week,” Hartwig said of Freedom’s opener against Turlock High. “We told the kids this week to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. The refs said whenever we needed an extra water break, just let them know.”
