After being shut out in their first game of the season, the Miller Falcons flipped the script with a 40-0 win against the Wahama White Falcons Friday night at Walter Harrop Field.

Miller started off hot in their first game at home and never looked back. The Falcons first offensive drive was extended on a fourth down when Wahama gave up major yardage on a pass interference policy. The penalty set the Falcons up for a 27 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Colby Bartley to receiver Kylan McClain. McClain freed himself from his defender on a slant across the middle and saw nothing but open-field after the catch.

The Falcons offense showed no sign of stopping as they scored another touchdown before the end of the first with junior wideout Gage Spencer rifling a 40 yard bomb to Blayton Cox. The biggest weapons for Miller were Devon Crabtree (118 rush yards, 2 TDs), Colby Bartley with 187 passing yards, and Kylan McClain accounted for 3 of the Falcons 6 touchdowns.

Miller was just as dominant on defense as they were offensively. Wahama could not get anything going for themselves offensively as the Falcons’ defense was too much to overcome. The White Falcons had not thrown or rushed for a first down until the seven-minute mark in the second quarter.  Miller’s combination of sacks and tackles for loss kept Wahama in negative yardage for the majority of the first half.

Now that the Miller Falcons (1-1) have earned their first TVC-Hocking win, they’ll hope to continue their momentum as they continue conference play next week against Belpre on the road.
