Football Team Rushes Past Argylls

Posted on October 8, 2017 in Fall Sports, Football

A new face in the Oak Hill attack joined a couple of the usual stalwarts to inject a spark to the Eagle attack Friday night.
Jon Holz racked up a big night running the ball and helped power the Eagles to 43-0 rout of Madison-Grant at home on Senior Night.
Holz nicely complimented the play of Landry Ozmun and Wes Transier to give the Eagles a three-pronged attack. Holz stepped in due to the absence of Reid Newhouse who suffered a leg injury in the early going.
“Reid’s our workhorse,” said Oak Hill coach Bud Ozmun. “He’s a captain, has a great attitude.”
But, Holz was up for the challenge in spite of not having many carries this season. Holz carried the ball 24 times in piling up 225 yards and two touchdowns.
“We wanted to give him some reps,” noted Ozmun. “It gave our offensive line some confidence.”
It was not all smooth going at the start. Both teams struggled in the opening quarter, trading turnovers and punts.
The Eagles cracked the scoreboard first when Landry Ozmun threaded a pass between two Argyll defenders that was grabbed by Wes Transier.
Transier had a clear path to the end zone on the 50 yard play.
Holz scored his first touchdown on a 32 yard run in the second quarter and went on a 43 yard jaunt in the third quarter. Transier scored again the second half breaking tackles and streaking down the side line from 59 yards out.
Ozmun added a score with his legs converting an impossible fourth and 22 play by weaving his way across the field. He tacked on another score late in the game on a short sneak.
“Landry had a tough couple of weeks,” said Bud Ozmun. “He came out and played well on defense and you could see his confidence grow.”
“I thought we still had effort but our fight waned a bit at times,” said Madison-Grant coach Kyle Booher. “We had entirely too much of not finishing plays.”
The Eagle defense had the Argylls bottled up most of the night limiting them to just 79 yards of offense and forced three turnovers.
“Oak Hill did a great coaching job,” praised Booher. “They came out with something completely different on defense to confuse us.”
Dylan Brooks completed six passes for the Argylls for 49 yards. Ty Rodabaugh was the favored target. The senior grabbed five passes for 48 yards. The running game was led by Randall Fultz and Alex Webb who both gained 21 yards.
Booher had praise for his two seniors, Rodabaugh and Layne Parsons, who was back for limited duty.
“They provide a lot of leadership for us,” said Booher.
Oak Hill, now 2-6 on the season, with a 2-4 mark in Central Indiana Conference play closes out the regular season next Friday with a visit to Frankton.
“I’m just happy for our guys and our seniors,” said Ozmun. “But to see our confidence back, our kids had fun again.”
The Argylls dropped to 0-8 and return home next week to face Elwood.
