The Hudson football team was about to put the finishing touches on its first win of the season.
Unfortunately, the victory parade will have to be put on hold. That’s because Friday’s game was not completed due to inclement weather.
The host Explorers had a 27-6 lead over Lyndhurst Charles F. Brush after three quarters before lighting struck near Hudson Memorial Stadium. Therefore, the final 12 minutes of game action has been postponed to Saturday.
Prior to the lightning strikes, Drew Lightner scored three touchdowns for Hudson. He finished with 99 yards in 24 attempts. Quarterback Jacob Paltani ran for a game-high 113 yards in 26 carries.
Jake Vidmar added field goals of 22 and 23 yards, respectively, for the Explorers, who led 24-0 at one point and outgained the Arcs 225-93.
Brush scored its lone touchdown on an 80-yard pass by quarterback Keyshawn Johnson to Octavian Harris in the third quarter.
