Shenandoah pounds Southern Wells

MIDDLETOWN, Ind. — One thing is for sure when you go up against the Shenandoah football team – the Raiders are going to pound you with the ground game.

The headache for opposing coaches is you just don’t know where it’s going to come from and just who it will be running the ball.

To compound the situation, the Raiders playmakers don’t seem to mind who gets the ball.

“We’ve got an unselfish group,” Shenandoah coach Scott Widner said. “They don’t really care who gets it done as long as it gets done.”

Southern Wells found out the hard way Friday night in a 53-13 Shenandoah romp at Dale Green Field.

A week after running for more than 400 yards against Hagerstown, Shenandoah racked up the rushing yards every which way possible en route to going over the 400-yard mark again.

The Raiders took advantage of an interception by Hunter Hess in the first quarter, going 41 yards in six plays with quarterback Adam Lovan sneaking in from the 1.

The extra point by Trevor Conner was good, and Shenandoah led 7-0 with 5:45 to go in the first quarter.

The game stayed at 7-0 into the second quarter when the dam burst and flooded Southern Wells.

Senior Chandler Hale scored on a 1-yard run to put Shenandoah up 14-0 with 11:25 left in the half.

Southern Wells penetrated Shenandoah territory on the next possession but fumbled at the 18, and the Raiders pounced on it. Hale outran the defense on the first play from scrimmage to go 82 yards to pay dirt and a 20-0 Shenandoah lead.

Southern Wells showed life and hit on a big play on the ensuing possession as quarterback Bryce Bonewit went 65 yards on the first play to bring Southern Wells back to within 20-6.

The rally was short-lived, however, as Lane Young ran twice for 53 yards, the second carry was a 47-yard sprint to the end zone, and a 27-6 Shenandoah lead with 5:54 to go in the half.
