Yorktown wins HHC shootout with PH

YORKTOWN, Ind. — Defense was optional on Friday night as Pendleton Heights and Yorktown combined for 127 points, 1,266 yards, 18 touchdowns, 51 first downs and three kickoff returns for a touchdown.

After more than three hours, Yorktown defeated Pendleton Heights in a Hoosier Heritage Conference shootout 78-49 at Tiger Field.

Chandler Carroll just missed a pair of state rushing records despite sitting out the last half of the fourth quarter. The senior rushed for a career-high and school-record 546 yards and eight touchdowns on 33 carries, including scoring runs of 56, 1, 4, 56, 43, 85, 66 and 25 yards. The state rushing record is 581 yards and the single-game touchdown mark is nine.

“It was a good night,” said Carroll. “I have to give credit to my offensive line. Some of those holes tonight you could drive a truck through. They put in the time to get better every day. We played well as a team, and I honestly couldn’t care less (how many touchdowns I score) as long as we are scoring as a team.”

Yorktown finished with 852 total yards, including 594 on the ground while Pendleton Heights rolled up 416 yards, including 353 through the air.

“Yorktown is a good offensive team, and they have good balance,” said Pendleton Heights coach John Broughton. “They are as balanced as any team we played this season.”

Senior Eren Davis had a spectacular game for the Arabians, returning two kickoffs for touchdowns. The receiver also finished with eight receptions for 110 yards and three more touchdowns, amassing 30 points himself.

Quarterback Jesse Furrow had a career night throwing the ball, finishing 31-of-55 for 353 yards and four touchdowns. In addition to the three to Davis he also had a 9-yard scoring throw to Nathan Grile.

“He came out of his funk tonight,” said Broughton of his quarterback. “He did a good job throwing the ball, and we are pleased.”

In addition to Davis’ two kickoff returns, Chandler Wilson also returned a kickoff 80 yards for another touchdown as Pendleton Heights had 14 points before it took an offensive snap in the first quarter.

The teams combined for 50 points in the first quarter alone as Yorktown held a 29-21 lead after just 12 minutes. The Tigers led 29-28 at the half and 64-42 after three quarters.

“We have got two good guys back there that return kicks, and no one will kick it to them anymore,” said Broughton.

Pendleton Heights (2-5, 0-5 HHC) hosts Muncie South next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
