Callaway's next posses- sion ended in a botched punt attempt with Rutland gain- ing possession at the Caviller ten. Three plays later the score was 19-0 as the Hurricanes capitolized the miscue. "I just don't know what's happening," said Giddens. "It seems like everything that can go wrong has gone wrong." From game one on, Callaway has had costly penalties, turnover after turnover, and just plain bad luck, period. "I feel for the boys," said Giddens. "They work hard in practice, they pay attention when we teach, and deserve to be better than 1-4." Butthings just haven't fallen th~C~avs way. To rub s&Rdn the wounds before halftime, Rutland's Cory Robinson raced 48 yards past the Callaway defense to make it 25-0 at the break. The Hurricanes' last touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a Darvarious Maze two yard run for the 32- 0 final score. Callaway did show signs of life when Bray broke loose for 53 yards for an apparent touchdown. But fittingly enough, the play was called back by a penalty. Giddens now has the task of preparing his team for always -tough Greenville this Friday night. The game will be at Greenville High School at 7:30.
