Teays Valley Uses Huge Third Quarter To Propel Themselves Past Amanda-Clearcreek< < Back to
TEAYS VALLEY, Ohio (WOUB) – It was a perfect evening for football as the Teays Valley Vikings sought to protect their undefeated record against the Amanda Clearcreek Aces. They succeeded in their goal with an end score of 28-14.
The possessions went back and forth, but it was the Aces that came out with the first touchdown with a 13 yard pass from Nate Hunter to Grant Guiler. Making the score 7-0 with 3:29 on the clock.
When they punted the ball away, it was caught by Teays Valley’s Thomas Williams, who ran the ball all the way to the endzone. This evened out the score 7-7, with 3:14 left in the first. The two teams scrambled to make another move, but this wouldn’t happen until the quarter changed.
The second quarter was full of momentum for Amanda Clearcreek with a sack, a couple picks off the play, and the first and only touchdown. The touchdown was completed with 00:41 seconds left in the quarter, putting emphasis on the mock two-minute drill.
The Vikings made some big moves in their limited time, passing the ball 25 yards in two first downs. They were robbed of the final possession by the Aces’ quarterback Nate Hunter, leaving eight seconds on the clock. The score was 7-14 to finish out the first half, but the people of Teays valley seemed hardly worried.
And rightfully so because the Vikings hit Clearcreek with two major touchdowns right off the bat. Running back Camden McDanel bulldozes through the D-line to get from the 26 yard line to the house, tying the game at 14-14 with 8:59 left in the third.
They score again 15 seconds later with an interception by #44 Samuel Jones, who runs it in to get a lead of 21-14. This lead wasn’t enough for the Vikings, they got another touchdown in the form of a 30 yard run by their Running back Peyton Weiler. This puts the score at 28-14 with 3:53 left on the clock.
The fourth quarter was a stalemate, and neither team scored again. The remainder of the game was a series of penalties and short runs.
The final score was 28-14, a Teays Valley victory, putting their record at 8-0. The Vikings will continue to battle for their undefeated title next week when they take on Bloom-Carroll away, and Amanda Clearcreek will play Logan Elm, also away.
