Rushing game returns as Arabians crush Rebels

PENDLETON, Ind. — Pendleton Heights snapped a five-game losing streak Friday, running roughshod over Muncie Southside on its way to a 62-27 victory.

Senior Jim Arney gained 151 yards on 12 carries and scored three touchdowns to lead the rejuvenated Arabians offense. Eight PH rushers combined for 295 yards against the Rebels after not reaching a combined 100 yards in the previous five games. Coach John Broughton, sporting a bright pink shirt in support of the first Pink Out for Cancer Game, thought the Arabians ran the ball better but didn’t want too get to “giddy” about it.

“We were running against a poor defense. But our young kids needed that. We’ve got two freshmen on that offensive line. Two of the five are freshman and one’s a sophomore. And then we got a junior and a senior so we have to get them some confidence. That helped us,” Broughton said. “They’re big kids, so they’re going to playing for us down the road but we need them to play now. They gotta play now. They did a nice job blocking up front.”

Noah Etchison (70 yards) and quarterback Jesse Furrow also had a rushing touchdown each for the Arabians.

The improved PH running game opened up the passing game for Furrow, who was a perfect 6-of-6 for 209 yards and three touchdowns. Chandler Wilson accounted for 108 yards of that total on just two catches that both resulted in touchdowns. Brandon Riggs also had one touchdown catch of 31 yards.

Senior Eren Davis scored the Arabians’ special teams touchdown with a spectacular 77-yard kickoff return in the first quarter. Muncie South didn’t let him get his hands on the ball again.

“They don’t want to kick deep to our kids. They gave us the ball at midfield because we’re pretty good back there,” Broughton said. “We ran three back last week and one this week. Eren got a hold of it, and he’s got confidence right now, he and Chandler both.”
