The Havre Blue Ponies got their first win of the 2012 Class A football season - and they did it against an old rival. On Friday night, the Pony offense put up big numbers in a 40-26 win over the Sidney Eagles at Blue Pony Stadium.
The Ponies took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter on a Thurman Holdsclaw touchdown run, one of four TD's for the senior on the night. But HHS trailed the Eagles 19-18 at halftime, beforeoutscoring them 22-8 the rest of the way. Freshman Dane Warp threw 3 touchdown passes to three different receivers, including a strike to Holdsclaw for 24 yards, one to Thomas Gruber for 43 yards and one to Zach Plum for 19 yards.
With the win, Havre improved to 1-3 on the season. The Ponies begin conference play next Friday night at home with the Belgrade Panthers. It's also HHS's Homecoming Game.
