The Hamilton Hawkeyes began the season 5-and-0. Then ran into best of the O K green.

Three losses later the Hawkeyes still haven't clinched a playoff spot. They had one final chance to do it against Sparta, a team coming off a 41-13 thumping of Comstock park.

On the first play of the game the Spartans Grant Kelley would keep it himself, using his legs to pick up a Sparta first down. on the next play Grant Kelley would drop back, unable to find an open man, he would tuck the ball and take it himself coming just short of the first down marker.

The Hawkeyes would go on to beat Sparta 29 -14.
