Generals take charge, beat Indianola Academy 49-7
GREENVILLE — Washington School’s Ryan Gober had two rushing touchdowns, Lea Turner ran in a 1-yard scamper, Read Kelly had 63 yards — including a four-yard rushing touchdown, and Eric Brozovich was 6-for-7 for 76 yards with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Jeffrey Davis.
Folks, those were the stats at halftime.
The Washington School Generals (2-3) marched out to a 35-0 halftime lead en route to a 49-7 victory Friday night over Indianola Academy.
There weren’t many highlights for the Colonels during the The Delta Democrat Times Game of the Week, as Indianola picked up only 50 first half yards and didn’t score until the first play of the fourth quarter against Washington’s reserves. Indianola’s Cody Maxey scored their lone touchdown on a 17-yard scamper.
The Generals’ scored two additional touchdowns during the second half — Hayden Lewis scored on a 2-yard quarterback sneak in the middle of the third quarter and Adam Gober punched in the final touchdown late in the fourth.
It’s safe to say, Washington School took no prisoners Friday night. The game started at 7 p.m. and was over by 8:45 p.m.
“I’m so proud of our team. The older guys came out and did was they were suppose to do,” said Washington School coach Phillip Wasson. “And we got these young guys out to get some experience.”
Washington’s defensive unit was stellar on the night, holding the Colonels to just 75 total yards. Dylan Elkins and Andrew Steinle both picked off Indianola quarterback Caleb Dodson, who struggled throwing the ball all night.
For a team that started off 0-3, the Generals have started to get things going by winning their last two games.
“I don’t think people realize the first three games were (against) really tough opponents,” said Wasson. “And it really helps us for the rest of the year because (they) were really physical. All three games we were in, and all three games were very physical.”
Washington will be on the road this Friday at Lee Academy. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
