The Oceana Indians improved to 3-0 on the season as they picked up a 28-18 win over Trap Hill on Tuesday.
The Indians started out a little slowly but got on the scoreboard when Connor Booth threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Zane Cook. Oceana later scored in the half when Evan Hanshaw took a handoff to the right and raced 25 yards for a touchdown. Bradyn Waldron’s 2-point conversion made it a 14-12 Oceana lead at the half.
Trap Hill scored to open the second half before the Indians went on a long drive capped off by a 10-yard run by Cooper Hatfield to make it a 20-18 Oceana advantage. The Indians added one more touchdown with Waldron scoring the 2-point conversion. From there Indian defense held.
“A lot of stuff we had to over come as a team tonight and the kids responded very well,” said Oceana head coach Justin Tilley. “I’m very proud of our team. Credit to my assistant coaches again. They’ve done heck of a job with getting them prepared in practice. I knew we had a talk task in containing their quarterback. He’s big, strong and fast on his feet. It takes more than two or three players to tackle him, and our kids showed up and played well. We still have a lot we need to work on and keep getting better, but over all I’m proud of my team.”
Oceana will next play Man at home next Thursday, September 21 at 6:30 pm.
