    we actually lost last year to heritage on our homecoming game, but we payed em back

  3. Ruckus on October 10th, 2009 10:35 am

    Egreen enjoy this small victory, but in the season picture it doesent change a thing. Heritage still controls its destiny and with three wins in the next three weeks they are league champions. Egreen will be a league bottom dweller with Battleground and Mt. View. Put that on the board.

    I love how a head to head win is a ‘small’ victory…HHS fans have been so unsportsmanlike this entire year! They brag about how great they are, but they still to this day do not have one quality win. but more than their share of bad losses. Their defense STILL has allowed the most points than in GSHL 3A/A Yet, they are ‘in control’ of the 4A…. keep re-arranging the deck furniture on the Titantic…maybe since they’re handing out peace prizes to people who haven’t really done anything to earn it, that they’ll just hand you the title this year because you were SUPPOSE to be good.

    Time to stop making excuses

    Perhaps it is time to to make some changes on defense for Heritage. The line NEVER gets a push into the backfield. Every tackle is made by a linebacker. Every run play goes for 4-7 yards. There has to be a couple of offense line men who could play both ways to shore things up. I notice there is an all league offensive line man from last year who does not play defense. Hmmm, maybe he could help.

    Some of the calls last night were unbelievable, clean pick by david painter #3, from heritage, at the end called pass intereference, cj hatchet touchdown called back 60 yards for holding, uh just a nasty game. How bout the fumble by heritage on the 3 yard line. but i have stressed heritage needs a better oline and the corners are to short, just like what happened on evergreens last play, would have that been cj hatchet, doug vanalst evergreen would have never had a touchdown. Makes me sick remembering that game. Heritage had a million chances to put this game away but didn’t and i give full credit to evergreen for capitalizing on that.

    If you would like to talk about unsportsmanlike conduct, you should look at how the Egreen kids acted after the game. The students that came onto the field were not very nice with the things they were saying. Other than that it was a good game for both teams. Someone I agree with you that the HHS coaches should look at changing up the line. There are some kids who may help if they play both ways.

  9. Rob on October 10th, 2009 1:35 pm

    hhs dad , are you kidding me ? The fans were excited because egreen won , rushed the filed, and celebrated , in ANY close game that would happen , you cant deny that. saying mean things ? i would too , thats what happends when you have your buddies leave egreen and go to another school because the think they are some sort of superstars and believe that egreen is done with , so of course when egreen dominated the game they would have some words for the previous “friends”. It was an all around good game , we can both agree the calls were terrible on both sides. it was a exciting game !

    why are so many heritage people making excuses. Evergreen outplayed heritage on Friday and were prepared on offense and defense. We worked hard all season and deserved the win.

  11. Egreen on October 10th, 2009 3:54 pm

    Last week, we beat ourselves. This week we decided to pick on someone else.

    Let’s see how the season plays out for these two teams! Keep it clean and move on… Good luck to all!

  14. Just Sayin' on October 10th, 2009 7:29 pm

    Just watched the video.. a lot to be said, but I will keep my posts positive. I really believe that #3 for Evergreen (don’t know his name) deserves All Region consideration on both sides of the line. Every time I see Evergreen play I am always impressed with his heart, and effort on every play. He has my vote for biggest CLEAN hit of the year for his tackle on #42 during the Union game.

  15. E-PARENT on October 10th, 2009 9:55 pm

    IF EVERY TEAM IN GSHL HAD EVERGREEN’S HEART, THEY WOULD BE A 50%
    BETTER TEAM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Painter3 on October 11th, 2009 1:15 am

    Evergreen got bailed out so many times in this game it was rediculous. Yes we (Heritage) had a ton of chances but then bs crap is called by the refs everytime we get something started, CJ’s TD they called back on holding, my interception on Evergreen’s “all region” player on a PI call when I clearly did not touch him I picked the ball in his face, what a joke lol.

  17. rsdlfjasldj on October 11th, 2009 7:45 am

    his names kyle cahoon

  18. dADDYDAVE on October 11th, 2009 9:23 am

    How come no P.I. play on the highlight film. That play changed the game and was an obvious blown call. With out that refs huge blunder, Heritage ball at the Evergreen 48. Heritage would of either ran the clock out for overtime, though there was 2:12 left in the game or would of scored. I was at the game and man that had to be just as bad as the pass interference on the last play of the game. Watch the final clip and you will see 2 evergreen players with their arms around a Heritage player in a bear hug. I get letting the players play, but in the first case their was no contact, and in the second you had two players “grinding” another player.

  19. HHS on October 11th, 2009 5:29 pm

    I think we (Heritage) need to change alot. Like the coaching….it needs to change. Our coaches are so narrow minded.

  20. HHS Fan on October 11th, 2009 5:42 pm

    Instead of making statements like this on a website, bring it up to your coaches.

  21. supa on October 11th, 2009 6:49 pm

    ok, for all of you complaining about bad calls… since when was there a game that didn’t have a bad call? the refs cant call every little ticky tacky thing. give evergreen some respect they are a rebuilding program, and heritage is suppose to be the “power house” of the 4a gshl, which isn’t true cuz skyview is. and whoever hhsdad is, they’re high school kids who are happy they school won, if you ever played a thrilling sporting event in your life you’d understand and stop crying about it. and “Ruckus,” how does it feel to know that heritage lost to a “bottom dweller?’

  22. lovefootball on October 11th, 2009 8:14 pm

    Just way too much talent to be that bad!?!?

  23. Spectacular Spectator on October 11th, 2009 9:28 pm

    Hey Painter3, why don’t you quit complaining about the refs and learn to play defense.

  24. Afanoffootball on October 12th, 2009 2:23 pm

    SMALL VICTORY!?!?!?!

    This was a nice win for Egreen….You can’t look pass any team and Heritage did. They are not as good as their coaches say they are. Yellow flags aside they could not stop the run at all. 20min 33sec of O in the first Q. Heritage had 35 to 40 plays the whole game. Come on the refs had nothing to do with that. Oh Yeah Heritage was going to mercy rule Egreen by the 3rd Q. You shouldn’t give people stuff to put on the board. Sicne is was a close game now you want to pick the game apart blame the refs. The calls were bad on both sides

    A ” W ” is a W in any book……

  26. gogreen on October 15th, 2009 1:32 pm

    hahaha, painter you’re so funny. Too bad you’ve always played like that. You’re just good at what you do cause you couldn’t see the PI from th home stands. H had a handfull of kyle cahoon’s jersey on kyle’s back all the way down the field, otherwise he would have burned your sorry butt. P.S this is Kyle’s first year of var. 9-2 all time vs heritage baby.

  27. E-PARENT on October 15th, 2009 8:34 pm

    LAST NIGHT (WED) I WATCHED THE GAME AGAIN ON CH 29. I CAN SEE WHY HERITAGE FANS ARE UPSET WITH THE OFFICATING. THE ONLY PROBLEM THOUGH IS I WATCHED THE GAME FROM EVERGREEN SIDE LAST FRIDAY AND THE CALLS WERE RIGHT. THE OFFICIALS GOT IT RIGHT. THE ONLY ONE THEY MISSED WAS AT THE END WHEN YOUR QB FUMBLED THE SNAP AND EVERGREEN RECOVERED AND THE OFFICAL CALLED TIME OUT FOR HERITAGE AT THE END OF PLAY WHILE THE EVERGREEN PLAYER HANDED THE BALL TO THE OFFICALS. JUST GOES TO SHOW US THERE’S MORE THAN ONE SIDE TO ALL CALLS!!!!!!!!!!

Got something to say?
