CARROLL, Ohio (WOUB) — It was a great day for football in Southeastern Ohio on Friday night, as the Hamilton Township Rangers took on the Bloom-Carroll Bulldogs.
It was clear that Bloom-Carroll came into this game with a clear game plan, as they ran the ball every play of their first drive. The Hamilton defense looked promising, however, as they held the bulldogs to a fourth down. The decision to go for it proved effective, because on the next play, Andrew Marshall would score a 33-yard rushing touchdown.
After a quick, lackluster first drive for the Rangers, Bloom-Carroll would get the ball back, and continue to exploit Hamilton Township’s run defense. BC’s Chase Plantz would eventually punch the ball in from 2 yards out, 14-0 Bloom-Carroll.
Hamilton Township quickly punted the ball back to Bloom-Carroll, and they would continue to struggle offensively for the rest of the night. The bulldog’s next drive was very similar to their last, as they would march down the field again with their run heavy offense. A 35-yard end around to Brodyn Bishop would set up another Chase Plantz rushing touchdown, this time from 8 yards out.
Bloom-Carroll only had one hiccup in the first half, and it came in the form of a fumble on the Hamilton Township 20-yard line. With only 18 seconds left in the first half, Hamilton had no time to make anything of the turnover and went into the locker room down 21-0.
The second half was much of the same for both teams. The Hamilton offense failed to make anything happen, and the seemingly unstoppable Bloom-Carroll running game continued to score. The Bloom-Carroll motto seemed to be “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, because they would continue to feed its running backs. Andrew Marshall would score 2 more rushing touchdowns, and Dylan Armentrout would score on a huge 50-yard rushing touchdown.
To add insult to injury, Dylan Armentrout would score once more on a pick 6 late in the fourth quarter. Bloom-Carroll defeats Hamilton Township easily 48-0.
