The Wahama White Falcons were able to cool off a hot Trimble Tomcats squad, as they were able to pull out a 25-12 win in a pivotal TVC-Hocking matchup.
It was all Waham from the start, beginning the scoring in the first quarter when quarterback Trenton Gibbs ran the ball himself a ways across the field, passing to Crandale Neal under pressure for the first touchdown of the game. Wahama’s PAT was blocked, still leaving Wahama leading 6-0.
Gibbs ended the game 7-for-11, totaling 155 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Kane Roush was another strong member on the white falcon team tonight, totaling 80 yards rushing with eight carries, including a 51-yard run.
Although Konnor Standley could be seen sneaking past the White Falcons’ defense in normal fashion, Wahama’s strong defense caught on and stopped him in his tracks more times than not later in the game.
Despite Standley’s stellar plays, Jacob Kish stepped up to show that the Tomcats weren’t going to go down without a fight. The PAT following was short, leaving the score tied at six going into halftime.
Things looked promising for Trimble when Kish intercepted a pass from Gibbs, but gave the ball to Wahama after reach fourth down with 25 yards still to go.
Coming back from the halftime talks, Wahama battled with the goal line, managing to get the touchdown after a couple attempts from a few yards away, making the score 12-6 with 5:17 left in the third quarter.
Wahama took the reigns from there on out, utilizing their Wing-T offense and topping out at 281 yards while Trimble had 214 on offense. In the end, Wahama ended up on top by 13.
Wahama will next take on Eastern on their turf while Trimble will be making the trip to scratch out the South Gallia Rebels.
