Oak Hill eliminates Madison-Grant

FAIRMOUNT, Ind. — Using a strong rushing attack and a steady defense, Oak Hill was able to pull away from host Madison-Grant 40-14 in the Class 2A, Sectional 36 opener Friday night.

Coming into the game, the teams had combined for more than 6,000 rushing yards and only 700 passing yards so a grind-it-out game was expected. Neither team disappointed, but it was Oak Hill that gained an early advantage.

The Golden Eagles scored on their first possession, a 10-play, 60-yard drive after receiving the opening kickoff. Fullback Ethan Bowland went up the middle and dove over the pile for a 4-yard touchdown run. After the extra point, the Golden Eagles led 7-0 with 7:38 to go in the first.

Madison-Grant’s Austin Purkey returned the kickoff to the 43 but fumbled on the second play of the possession, giving the ball to Oak Hill at the Eagles’ 44.

Oak Hill drove 56 yards in nine plays, with Zach Daniels scoring on a pitch to the left side from 20 yards out. After the extra point, Oak Hill led 14-0 with 116 yards of offense while Madison-Grant had run two plays for 13 yards.

The Argylls got on the scoreboard early in the second quarter when Purkey faked a handoff and went on a 29-yard sprint to the end zone. The 2-point conversion failed, leaving the Argylls down 14-6.

Oak Hill went on another long drive, going 65 yards in 12 plays to take a 20-6 lead with 5:38 left in the half when Nick McPike scored from 5 yards out. The drive was costly, however, as starting quarterback Derrick Randall went out with a leg injury. Randall was hit as he tried to recover a fumbled handoff and did not return in the half, although he did start the third quarter.

Trailing by two touchdowns, the Argylls received the second-half kickoff but failed to convert on fourth down and turned the ball over to Oak Hill.
