CHATSWORTH- Big performances by North Murray offensive stars helped power The Mountaineers to a win over The Coahulla Creek Colts on Friday. A total of 82 points were scored between the two teams marking the highest total ever between the two schools.
The Colts opened the scoring on their first possession of the game as Tyler Locklear capped the drive with a 4-yard rushing Touchdown. Seth Griffin and the Mountaineer offense wasted no time getting on the board themselves when Griffin found Michael McDade all alone on a 47-yard touchdown tying the game at 7-7.
The next Colt possession would lead into the second quarter and would eventually result in a Logan Fowler field goal after the Colt drive stalled in the red zone. The 10-7 Colt lead would only last a little over 3-minutes before Jadyn Rice weaved his way through the Colt defense, bouncing off defenders for a 19-yard touchdown. The Rice touchdown run gave the Mountaineers their first lead of the night at 14-10. After a Colt punt, the Mountaineer passing attack took to the air once again as Griffin connected with Rice down to the Colt 8-yard line. An Ethan Dempsey run picked up a couple, then on the next play Griffin found McDade for the 6-yard touchdown bringing the score to 21-10. The ensuing kickoff was all Owen Hannah, as the senior kicker recovered his own onside kick giving the Mountaineers another scoring opportunity before the half. The Mountaineers capitalized on the next play when Griffin hit Judson Petty on a 50-yard touchdown strike putting the Mountaineers up 28-10. Owen Hannah closed out the scoring in the first half with a short field goal as time expired, sending North Murray to halftime with a commanding 31-10 lead.
It took less than a minute into the second half for Griffin and McDade to get back in the endzone. Griffin hit McDade on a short pass and he took it from there, evading defenders and breaking tackles for a 32-yards touchdown extending the North Murray lead to 38-10. The remainder of the third quarter would belong to Kace Kinnamon and the Colts. Kinnamon would go on to throw Touchdown passes to Robbie WIggins and Manny Dominguez before the end of the Quarter, cutting into the North Murray lead which now stood at 38-24.
The two teams spent the first part of the final quarter trading touchdown rushes. Rice found the endzone for his second rushing touchdown for the Mountaineers, followed by Locklear adding his second Touchdown rush of the evening for the Colts. With the score 45-30 in favor of North Murray, any points this late in the game could seal it for the Mountaineers, and that’s exactly what Griffin and McDade had in mind. The two would hook up one more time for a 65-yard touchdown giving the Mountaineers a 52-30 advantage and closing the door on the Colts chances.
Seth Griffin finished the game 22 of 31 passing for 390 yards and 5 TD, Michael McDade racked up 210 yards on 10 catches and 4 TD. The win moves North Murray to 2-1 on the season and they will host Sonoraville next week. The loss for Coahulla Creek drops them to 2-2 on the season and the Colts will host LFO next week.
