Vikings' offense lights up Tribe

ANDERSON, Ind. — The Huntington North Vikings rolled up 481 yards in a 46-13 North Central Conference victory over Anderson on Friday night at Collier Field.

“Right now we are struggling,” said Anderson coach Randy Albano. “We do have the athletic talent to play with people, but we lack the football discipline and that’s where teams are beating us.”

Tailback Jerian Beard led the Indians with 125 yards rushing on 22 carries, including a pair of touchdown runs from 29 and 2 yards, respectively. Beard also caught a pair of passes out of the backfield.

Gaven Owens completed 7 of 15 passes for 74 yards. Robby Peal led the receivers with three catches for 51 yards. Backup running back Tyler Welch added 10 carries for 36 yards, and receiver Alonzo West added two catches for 18 yards.

Huntington North finished with a 481-207 advantage in total offense, including 276-133 on the ground. Tailback Charleston Dydasco finished with 187 yards rushing, 74 receiving and scored three touchdowns.

Dydasco set the tone on the first play of the game, running for a 70-yard touchdown just 11 seconds into the first quarter. The Vikings also had big scoring plays from 51, 56 and 48 yards in the first half as they built a 33-7 lead.

“Most teams, if they throw something new at us, our kids don’t adjust and they scored a touchdown and it set the tone for the game,” said Albano. “That’s happened to us, and we’ve had problems with that the last two years.”

Anderson (1-4, 1-3 NCC) travels to New Castle next Saturday at 1 p.m.
