Dominance up front leads Dragons past PH

(Continued)

NEW PALESTINE, Ind. —

Fatigue seemed to play a part in the Arabians’ inability to get back in the contest. New Pal ran 84 plays from scrimmage — none were called from a huddle.

“I think part of it was our guys were getting tired because of their hurry-up offense,” PH senior Cody Cochran said. “We also lost all our discipline, we quit doing our jobs and just weren’t thinking.”

Cochran was one of the Arabian defenders charged with stopping New Pal standout wide receiver Tyler Walden. The senior had a record-setting night for the Dragons. His 14 receptions for 210 yards put him tops in school history for receptions in a game, career receptions, yards in a game and career receiving yards.

Broughton credited the New Pal offensive line for the success the Dragons had through the air, which led to four of their seven touchdowns.

“They got time to throw the ball,” he said. “Their line protects their quarterback extremely well. That was the difference in the football game — upfront. We can cover (their receivers) for so long, but we can’t cover them forever.”

The lone Arabian score came late in the first half when Furrow pounded his way in from the 1-yard line. The score was set up when Furrow found Chandler Wilson for a 60-yard completion.

Wilson also ran a kickoff back 83 yards and led the team in receiving yards with 137 on seven catches.

“New Pal played harder than we did, and that is the most disappointing thing for me,” Broughton said. “They played harder than we did, and that is something we can control. We can control how hard we play, and we did not play hard.”
