Hubbard fell behind early against Bogan Thursday, but rallied for a 14-6 Prairie State victory at Gately Stadium.
The Bengals (2-4, 0-3) struck on their first play from scrimmage with a 78-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Christopher Johnson to Isaiah Robinson with 10:32 remaining in the first quarter.
The Greyhounds (2-4, 2-1) scored with 1:07 remaining in the third quarter on a 17-yard run by Reginald Johnson. Santimo Thomas' two-point conversion run gave Hubbard an 8-6 lead.
Thomas was just getting started. He intercepted a pass with 9:45 remaining in the fourth quarter, and later scored on a 10-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Malik Anderson with 4:24 remaining in the game.
"We only have four seniors and one is a girl,'' Hubbard coach Elton Harris said. ''We just have to keep grinding and getting better. The main thing is we got out of here with a win."
Bogan coach Andrew Ware felt his team let one get away. "We had our chances and we blew a lot of opportunities,'' Ware said. ''We are building a program and we are moving in the right direction.''
