The Montgomery Central Indians were only able to earn 4 first downs in the first half. The offense was held to 0 points, forced to punt 5 times and had one turnover on downs. Despite the bad weather, they committed only one turnover in the game.

The Indians first punt ended in disaster. Yellowjacket senior, Nic Harvey caught the punt at the 10-yard line, then broke some tackles and dashed 90 yards down the sideline to the end zone. After the Indians second punt, it only took the Yellowjackets five plays before senior Garrett Wall eluded Indian’s defenders in a 42-yard scramble to make the score 13-0 at 6:09 in the first quarter.

A short third punt by the Indians gave the Yellowjackets first and 10 on the Indians 43-yard line. On the third play of the drive sophomore quarterback Hunter Zimmerman threw a 35-yard touchdown to Harvey, extending the lead to 19-0.
On the first play of the Indians ensuing offensive drive, Yellowjacket senior Dreshad Moore intercepted Indian’s sophomore quarterback Peyton Delvendahl and ran for the Yellowjacket’s 4th touchdown.

After another punt, the Indians defense were in a position to stop the Yellowjacket’s offense for the first time when a penalty set them up for 4th and 5 on the 35-yard line.

However, instead of turning the ball over on downs, Zimmerman used play action to trick the Indians defense and passed the ball to wide-open, senior Hunter Myatt. Myatt ran to end zone and the Yellowjackets were ahead 35-0 at 10:26 in the second quarter. The Yellowjackets last score before halftime was an 11-yard touchdown run by Wall.

Wall had 7 rushes for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Zimmerman completed 4of 6 passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

The Indians offense got better in the second half as the weather got worse. The Yellowjacket’s opened the second half rushing the ball and failed to score for the first time in the game. They turned the ball over on downs and the Indians took over in Yellowjacket’s territory.

Delvendahl capped off a 3-play offensive drive when he faked a handoff then beat a Yellowjacket defender to the edge and sprinted 37 yards for the Indians first score at 2:36 in the third quarter. In addition to the rushing touchdown, Delvendahl completed 3 of 8 passes for 33 yards and one interception in the game.

The Indians continued to gain momentum as they forced the Yellowjackets to punt. Then, on 1st and 10, a soaked, junior Tyler Snead burst through several Yellowjacket defenders and hydroplaned 61 yards to the end zone to make the score 42-13 with 9 minutes left in the game.

It was the last score for the Indians. Snead led all Indians rushers with 61 yards and a touchdown. Junior Heath Greene rushed for 56 yards.

The Yellowjackets added their last touchdown at the end of a 5-play drive. Junior Drevon Moore rushed for a 10-yard touchdown. Moore had 9 rushes 96 yards and a touchdown all in the second half.

Next, the Indians travel to play Waverly Central, Friday September 27th
