FOOTBALL: Freshmen Indians end year with win

RICHMOND — The Madison Central freshman football team ended its season on a high note Saturday with a 23-8 postseason win over Henry Clay.

With the win, the Indians finished with a 6-4 record on the year.

The Blue Devils took an early 8-0 lead after recovering a Central fumble on the 26-yard line.

The Indians quickly answered back thanks to a 47-yard touchdown run by Keenan Miller to cut the lead to 8-6.

Thanks in part to some strong play by linebackers K.J. Long, Landon  White, Rosin McLaughlin and Hunter Hazelwood, the Indians kept the Blue Devils in check for the remainder of the first half.

The Indians took their first lead of the game at 9-8 with three seconds remaining in the half on a 32-yard field goal by Worthie McGuire.

Behind the defensive line play of Josh Dooling, Brandon Howard, Kenneth Houlihan and Cameron Garrett, the Indians kept the Blue Devils in check the entire second half.

The Central offense finally broke through with another score in the waning minutes of the third quarter.

Faced with a fourth-and-two on the Blue Devils’ 26-yard line, quarterback K.J. Long rolled out and hit McGuire with a pass that he carried down to the 2-yard line.

Miller’s two-yard TD run made it 15-8 and McGuire’s extra point gave the Indians a 16-8 lead after three quarters.

Central then executed a perfect on-sides kick that was recovered by Christian Everly.

Behind the offensive line of Javin Sweeney, Dannie Thomson, Nathan Britt, Corban Counch, Tauryn Huguely and Garrett, the Indians methodically drove the ball down field on a clock-eating drive.

But for the third time in the game, a Central fumble once again killed the drive on at the 9-yard line.

Central’s secondary of Malcom Bell, Jackson Hurt and Christian Everly held the Blue Devils to four incomplete pass and the Indians took over possession on the 9-yard line.

Miller’s 9-yard TD run and McGuire’s extra point made the final 23-8.
