Big Reds Can't Stop Knights' Ground Game, Lose 40-7

[Game Photos]

ONA - Undefeated Cabell Midland showed why it was averaging over 66 points and 532 yards rushing per game here Friday night as the Knights rolled to a 40-7 MSAC victory over the Parkersburg Big Reds.

Last year's state runners-up piled up 521 yards on the ground and got three touchdowns from Pt. Pleasant transfer Teran Barnitz to hand the Big Reds their first loss of the year. The Knights also got two touchdowns from Kasey Thomas, who came into the game with nine touchdowns in the first two games alone.

But the game was closer than the score and statistics appeared. Even though they were out-gained 553-188 and out-first downed 29-14, PHS played good defense at times and were hurt offensively with three turnovers deep in Midland territory.

The game started with a 58 yard kickoff return by junior Dan Fox all the way to the Knights' 31 yard line only to have the play wiped out when Midland was called for being offside on the kick. PHS wound up returning the second kickoff to only its own 29 yard line, losing one yard on three plays and being forced to punt.

On the punt, Midland's Thomas caught the ball on his 34 yard line and weaved through the PHS defense all the way to the end zone to put his team ahead with just 101 seconds gone in the contest.

PHS suffered another three-and-out on its next possession and Midland drove all the way to the Big Red three yard line but successive defensive plays by J.D. Barnette and Aaron Roberts stopped the threat and PHS took over on its own 10 yard line.

The teams traded punts but the Big Reds then put together a 67 yard drive to the Cabell 13 yard line, thanks in large part to a 34 yard pass from Roberts to Fox up the left sideline. But a Big Red fumble on a third down play gave Midland the ball back and the Knights proceeded to drive 87 yards in 12 plays with Barnitz scoring on an 18 yard run with 7:42 left in the first half.

After a Big Red punt, the Knights put together another impressive drive, going 78 yards on 11 running plays with Barnitz scoring again from the two after the Big Reds had apparently stopped the drive with a fourth down pass deflection in the end zone which was called interference and set up the TD run with 1:35 remaining before the intermission.

The third quarter saw little action until Barnitz and Alex Childers ripped off successive runs of 14 and 22 yards to set up Thomas' 8 yard run with 41 seconds remaining that ran the score to 28-0.

PHS then put together a nice offensive drive sparked by a 17 yard run from Josh Trembly and pass completions of 13 yard to Fox and 22 yards to Dylan Thomas that produced a first and goal from the Midland 10. On third down Roberts tried a pass into the end zone and a flag was thrown apparently for interference only to have it picked up and waved off. Josh Roney then tried a 26 yard field goal but was wide left with 10:37 on the fourth quarter clock.

The Knights then went 80 yards on several big running plays and a 15 yard penalty against PHS. Barnitz collect his third TD of the night on a 17 yard run up the middle with 7:45 remaining.

PHS then drove to the Cabell 16 yard line with Roberts hitting Thomas on a 17 yard completion and the Big Reds were helped by a couple of big penalties. But on first down the Big Reds fumbled away a scoring chance.

However, three plays later Barnette caused and then recovered a Midland fumble and PHS had the ball back on the home team's 23 yard line. Two plays later Stubbs went up the middle from 20 yards out to put the Big Reds on the board.

An unsuccessful onside kick attempt gave Midland the ball back on its 41 yard line with 4:37 to play and big runs by Thomas and Donte Hendricks helped Midland reach the end zone when Childers ran out of a Big Red tackle and scored from the eight yard line.

Chandler Hamilton then had a 50 yard kickoff return for the Big Reds, and Roberts completed passes of 22 and four yards to Thomas and 11 yards to Chase Shank to put PHS on the Midland 11 yard line with two minutes left to play. But Roberts was intercepted in the end zone and the the final PHS threat was over.

Roberts completed 10 of 20 passes for 136 yards on the night with Thomas catching four for 65 and Fox three for 49 yards. Stubbs was the leading rusher with 49 yards on 12 carries. Shank was the leading tackler for the Big Reds with 13 stops while Hamilton had an interception.

Barnitz had 150 yards rushing on 18 carries while Thomas ran 18 times for 134 yards for the 3-0 Knights.
