Michael Henwood threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns as Hickory downed Grove City for the second time in a month 28-7 Friday night at Forker Field.

“We knew they were going to make some adjustments, and this was a hard-fought game,” said Hickory head coach Bill Dungee. “We talked before the game about being mature. Last year we were 3-0, we went on the road and got it handed to us.”

With the win, Hickory now improves to 4-0 on the season.

Coupled with their offense, the Hornets were even better on defense, allowing Grove City to gain only 170 yards of total offense.

“Our secondary is playing well, and our defensive line is improving every week,” said Dungee. “When you play a team like Grove City, they attack you.”

They surrendered a lone touchdown after the outcome had been decided.

“We knew coming in they’re a great football team, and do a great job,” said Grove City head coach Sam Mowrey. “Their defense did a good job tonight. They have some weapons to get the ball to and a great quarterback.”

Big plays were the name of Hickory’s game as they struck late in the first quarter on Henwood’s 61-yard touchdown pass to Matt Cannone.
