Oak Hill eliminates Madison-Grant



The Golden Eagles once again grinded out a long drive, this time going 62 yards on 12 plays before Daniels scored on a pitch to the right side.

The Argylls again turned the ball over on downs but forced the Golden Eagles to punt for the first time on the night. The advantage, however, went to Oak Hill as the punt was downed at the 9, and a penalty took the ball back to the 4.

Madison-Grant ran three plays for no yards, and Purkey attempted a pass on fourth down. It was just out of Cameron Myers’ reach, and Oak Hill took over 4 yards out of the end zone.

Bowland crashed in from the 1 on second down to give the Golden Eagles a 33-6 advantage.

Madison-Grant showed life on the next possession, however, as Purkey made two key plays to score a touchdown. On a fourth-and-9 at the Argylls’ 20, Purkey faked a handoff to Myers and sprinted 54 yards to the Golden Eagles’ 26. Later, Purkey hit Dakota Brooks with a short pass over the middle, and Brooks ran untouched into the end zone.

Myers ran the ball in for the 2-point conversion, and the Argylls had a shot with 8:23 left in the game.

The Argylls were close to recovering the onside kick, but the ball went out of bounds, and Oak Hill took over.

The Argylls forced a fumble, and Brooks recovered it but once again the drive stalled.

Oak Hill went in for the final score when Daniels scored his third touchdown of the night on a 19-yard run with 1:59 left.

Unofficially, Oak Hill outgained Madison- Grant 335-240. All of the yards gained by the Golden Eagles were rushing yards.

“We struggled tackling,” Madison-Grant coach Craig Barr said. “It’s a tough situation when we had the turnover on the first possession. We turned it over, they got up 14 and we struggled. We’re not a good come-from-behind team.”
