A pair of touchdown passes were all the Huron defense allowed in a 14-0 loss at Alcona Friday. The game marked the debut of head coach Tim Nagy.

Both teams struggled to move the ball, but the two big plays were the difference. Alcona’s first score came on its first possession when they connected on a 39-yard pass play.

The score was 6-0 at halftime.

Rogers City drove to the Alcona 31 yard-line on the opening drive of the second half. Quarterback Chris Lopez scrambled for 10 yards on second and 17. Then he hit Jacob Malocha for a 12-yard pass to open the drive.

Lopez picked up another first down on third and one when he called his own number on a quarterback draw. An incomplete pass on fourth down ended the drive.

Alcona scored on its first possession of the second half, a 38-yard pass. The two point conversion made it 14-0.

Lopez connected on 6-of-18 passes for 61 yards with three interceptions. Freshman Quintin Kelly was 1-of-2 for 31 yards. Lopez rushed for 59 yards on 13 carries and had an interception on defense. Evan Lamb rushed for 41 yards on nine carries while Malocha had 34 yards on six tries.

Lamb led the team with seven tackles while Malocha added six tackles. The Hurons host Onaway Thursday at 7 p.m.
