According to coach Ryan Mitch, the Hilton Head Christian Academy Eagles haven't played a dry game this year.
Why should a game postponed for weather be any different?
Hilton Head Christian lost 42-18 on Monday night at Northwood Academy in what Mitch called, "an absolute downpour."
"They're a good team, they've got a lot of talent," Mitch said of the Chargers (3-0, 1-0 SCISAA 2-AA). "Right now, they're the best team in our region.
Never miss a local story.
"We hung with them, but we just gave up big plays on defense. It would be third-and-16 or third-and-17, they'd throw a screen pass, we'd miss a tackle and the next thing they score a 40-yard touchdown."
Mitch said the Eagles (1-2, 0-1) struggled to run the ball early on, and the weather became more of a factor later in the game when HHCA was trying to come back.
"The more wet it got," Mitch said, "the tougher it got to throw the football."
The Eagles offense accounted for three touchdowns.
Joey Lankowski scored on a 65-yard pass play from Ryan Barrett, Chris Edwards had a 50-yard scoring run and Barrett ran it in himself from 1 yard out.
The Eagles had their first two PAT attempts blocked.
"You're not supposed to block the center, and twice they blew right through him and blocked it," Mitch said. "I guess the refs decided they didn't want to call anything."
After their third score, the Eagles' two-point play failed.
"We didn't play awful, we just missed a couple of tackles and struggled to block early on," Mitch said. "But we played hard and we kept playing and competing and we didn't quit."
Hilton Head Christian hosts First Baptist at 7 p.m. Friday.
