Hickman bounced back from its first loss of the season and made a statement Friday night at Parkway South.

The Kewpies beat the Patriots 44-0, dominating on special teams and defense.

After Andrew Perkins’ 48-yard punt put Parkway South at its 16-yard line and Devin Coleman stuffed a Patriots’ reverse play for a 10-yard loss on third down, Aaron Cawlfield blocked the Patriots’ punt for a safety. Hickman (2-1) never looked back and led 37-0 at half.

Behind the play of its defensive line, Hickman shut down dual-threat quarterback Phillip Schwartz and the Patriots (1-2) shotgun offense, holding them to 28 total yards and two first downs.

“(Schwartz) is a very good football player,” Hickman coach Gregg Nesbitt said.

“It really wasn’t about him; it was about the line of scrimmage. We really dominated that up front.”

Defense that included another blocked punt and two fumble recoveries put Hickman’s offense on a short field for most of the first half, usually starting inside the Patriots’ 40.

The Kewpies totaled 318 yards of offense with 266 yards on the ground.

Running back Brandon Kendrick led Hickman with 100 yards rushing on nine carries.

Perkins was 3-of-7 for 52 yards passing, including a 42-yard touchdown pass to Cedric Alvis midway through the first half.
