HAMMOND | Hammond quarterback Eric Schreiber Jr. returned to the helm of the offense back on Oct. 11 against Gavit and the Wildcats were rolling.

They scored 48 points a game during their three-game winning streak going into Friday's Class 3A Sectional 25 tilt with John Glenn.

But that came to a screeching halt after Glenn dominated on both sides of the ball and the visiting Falcons ran for 270 yards and blanked Hammond 43-0.

Hammond (4-7) had the ball for just a little over four minutes in the first quarter and were trailing by just eight after allowing a 28-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Wallace to Tyler Prentkowski on a fouth-and-8.

Glenn (6-5) opened up the floodgates in the second quarter, though, as it notched two scoring runs and two defensive touchdowns.

Schreiber Jr. threw picks on back-to-back possessions, including one that was returned by senior Michael Schmeltz for 47 yards.

The host Wildcats also coughed up the ball on a punt in the end zone that put the deficit at 36-0 at the half.

Things didn't go right for Hammond all night, as it had a touchdown pass called back for a chop block at the end of the game.

"We thought it would be possible to knock them off. We practiced well all week, but it sucks when you can't run the football," Hammond coach Eric Schreiber Sr. said.

This ends the career of the younger Schreiber, whom his father will remember fondly throughout the rest of his life.

"It's been a ride, man," he said. "He'll be around football for a long time because he'll be a coach, but we spend a lot of time together and made the best of it."
