Scenes From Toppers Homecoming Football Game

The Hilltopper football team bursts onto the field Friday to play their Homecoming Game for 2018. This year’s opponent is the Hope Christian Huskies, one of the top ranked teams in the state, and a team to play for homecoming to ensure a win. The Huskies lived up to their reputation as they rolled over the Toppers 46-2. The Toppers had a few brief moments of glory but the Huskies controlled the game. Photo by John McHale/
