A blowout under the lights for Varsity Football


Jordan Baker

Bud Atkis field at the SJHS is the scene of every football home game. Every SHS football fan sits around the Ave Cave. The Ave Cave is the student section.

The first and only Sat. night football game resulted in a 31 to zero victory. In addition to the victory being a blowout victory, the game was also televised on Star64. With this win the team improves to three and two overall and one and one in conference play.

“This was defiantly the most fun game we have played so far.  There is nothing better than a win over a team that is usually good and to win big on T.V,” junior Ben Schre said

The rushing was the deciding factor in the entirety of the game.

SHS outran Oak Hills with a team total of 239 yards to 93 yards. Those 239 rushing yards resulted in two touchdowns, one by sophomore Ra’Von Bonner and the other by junior Clarence Dawson.

The majority of the scoring was done during the first, second and third quarters of the game. There was a late safety in the fourth quarter of the game.

“That safety was just the icing on the cake. Nothing more satisfying than getting a safety when you play defense,” junior Jovon Cobbs said.

First quarter: Rushing TD, seven to zero

Second quarter: Rushing TD, 14 to zero. Passing TD and two point conversion, 22 to zero

Third quarter: Pick six, 29 to zero

Fourth quarter: Safety, 31 to zero

With the remaining games in conference, the football team will have to win the game at Middletown on Oct. 3 and hope that Lakota East and Colerain both lose their games so that they are tied for first in the Greater Miami Conference (GMC) standings.

“Nothing leads me to believe that we can’t get those wins. Just got to keep playing winning football,” senior Brian Jenkins said.
