Hutch-Tech nearing postseason berth

Matt Koenig's return has Hutch-Tech knocking on the door for a playoff spot.

The Engineers' senior captain missed three weeks with an ankle injury but was back on the All High Stadium turf Saturday afternoon, and made nine tackles in a 16-0 Harvard Cup victory over South Park.

Charles Lecounte carried 13 times for 100 yards and a touchdown and Chris Gyzl carried 11 times for 34 yards and a score, and completed 3 of 8 passes for 53 more yards.

Hutch Tech (4-4 overall, 4-3 in Harvard Cup) will finish its regular season Saturday against Grover Cleveland (6-2, 5-2). The winner most likely will join the four-team playoff field.
