Adames Leads Musselman Over PHS
Game Statistics / Game Photos
Musselman rode the incredible big play ability of Ray Adames to a 69-27 victory over Parkersburg Friday night at Stadium Field as the talented Applemen senior turned on the afterburners four times for touchdown runs of between 63 and 99 yards.
Adames, a 6-foot-2, 180 pounder with blazing speed, ran the ball five times for 222 yards and three touchdowns on plays of 80 (the first time he touched the ball), 63 and 64 yards while catching four passes for 78 yards (one a 40 yarder) and returned a kickoff 99 yards for another touchdown as he amassed 403 yards in all on just 11 touches.
Quarterback Bayden Hartman added three touchdown runs while Isaah Beard and Brayden Miller had interception returns of 54 and 51 yards for the playoff-bound winners. The ninth-ranked Applemen won their seventh game of the year while PHS finishes with a 4-6 mark.
The Big Reds were led by junior quarterback David Parsons who completed 14 of 27 passes for 208 yards and three touchdowns but was sacked twice and suffered two interceptions. His three touchdowns gave him 22 for the season and tied the school record for TD passes in the regular season. He now shares the mark with Jake Johnson. He is now tied with Chance Litton with 34 career touchdown passes – with another season to go after the career mark of 52 held by Marc Kimes (brother of current head coach Matt Kimes).
Scoring passes for PHS went to Aiydn Cooke for 39 yards, Andrew Stalnaker for 37 yards and Casey Stanley for 29 yards. Cooke also had a one yard touchdown run as he finished with 16 carries for 59 yards on the ground.
PHS took the opening kickoff and drove into Musselman territory only to have Miller intercept and return it 51 yards to the Big Red 10 yard line. Two plays later Hartman scored over right guard from three yards away.
The Big Reds responded with an 11-0play, 80-yard drive that started with a 15 yard pass to Austin Fleming and including a 22 yard sprint by Xavier Robinson. Cooke’s run up the middle closed the gap to 7-6 but Casey Stanley’s extra point kick was blocked.
Stanley put the ensuing kickoff in the end zone forcing Musselman to start from its own 20 but 13 seconds later Adames took off on an 80 yard sprint which saw him break a tackle in the secondary and no one was going to catch him on his way to the end zone for a 14-6 lead.
After a Big Red punt, Musselman went 74 yards in eight plays with Hartman covering the final 26 when he went back to pass but then scrambled up the middle to the goal line. PHS tried to reverse the momentum by going for it on fourth down near midfield but the pass failed and the visitors covered 52 yards on seven plays with a pass for the final 10 yards.
A 32 yard kickoff return by Anthony Ice set up Parkersburg’s second touchdown, a 39 yard toss to Cooke with 2:01 left in the first period which cut the lead to 28-13 and fans were beginning to expect another wild shootout like last year’s 56-52 PHS victory at Musselman.
Adames again took just one play to answer that touchdown as he took a backward pass out of the backfield, got to the sidelines and it was off to the races with no one about to catch the senior thoroughbred on this 63 yard run as the score moved to 35-13.
Musselman got the ball to start the second half and in four plays Adames did a repeat of his 63 yard run with a 64 yard scamper around right end to make it 42-13. The Applemen then tried a successful onside pooch kickoff which they recovered at the PHS 49 and a 40-yard pass to Adames on the second play took the ball to the three from where Dalton Hanes reached the end zone to make it 49-13.
The Big Reds failed on a fourth down play from their own 34 and Musselman covered that distance in seven plays with Hartman scoring from the four to make it 56-13.
With a running clock in the fourth quarter, PHS scored on a 37 yard pass to Stalnaker with 9:14 remaining but Adames returned the ensuing kickoff for a score just 13 seconds later as the lead ran to 63-20.
A 40-yard kickoff return by Ice set up the 29 yard scoring pass to Stanley with 6:30 remaining to make the score 63-27 but when the Big Reds tried an onside kick it was recovered by Adames and with 1:24 remaining in the contest the Musselman reserves scored on a 22 yard run.
