HUSKIES DOWN ROCKETS IN 57-6 ROUT
In a game eerily comparable to 2015, the Huskies jumped out to a big lead early against the Broad Ripple Rockets and coasted to a 57-6 victory. There was no facet of the game that the much larger and much better executing North squad did not dominate.
FIVE POSSESSIONS, FIVE TOUCHDOWNS
The opening possession of the game told the story of the differences in the two squads. A speedy return man brought the kickoff back to the 25 yard line for the Rockets and an end run moved the ball to the 29. On second down junior linebacker Andrew Hendrickson dropped a runner for a loss in the backfield and fellow junior Eric McClain did the same on third down. Facing fourth and twelve, Broad Ripple went to punt the ball away but sophomore Drew Routh flashed in from the side and blocked the kick. McClain recovered at the five yard line. Three plays later senior D’Amonte Sylvain recorded North’s first rushing touchdown of the season.
The second Broad Ripple possession fared only slightly better. Senior David Roach knocked down a third down pass (narrowly missing a ‘Pick-Six’ opportunity) and the Rockets ensuing punt went just 12 yards before falling out of bounds. The Huskies took over at the Broad Ripple 42 and senior quarterback Shawn Coane took over the show for the remainder of the first half.
COANE ASSUMES CONTROL
On first down, Coane carried the ball around left end on an option play and raced 33 yards to the nine. It was the first of six such long runs that the quarterback would make over the next 15 minutes of play. This one led to a seven yard score by Daniel Sellers and the Huskies went up 14-0 just six minutes into the game...
