Game Updates

The Miners opened their season at Batchelor MS in Bloomington, IN.  The 7th grade started off the evening.  The Miners got off to a strong start with a 68 yard drive culminating with Ty Boyd charging in from the 1 yard line for their 1st score of the year.  The extra point was no good.  Batchelor answered back with a long TD on a QB sweep.  The score was tied 6-6.  The next series saw the Miners face their first adversity of the year.  On 3rd and 8, Boyd rolled out and threw an interception.  Batchelor returned it inside the 10 yard line.  They scored a few plays later bringing the score to 14-6.  Missed blocks, bad snaps, and miscommunication doomed on the Miners next drive two drives.  Batchelor took advantage of their mistakes by taking a 20-6 lead going into halftime.  The Miners pushed through the early struggles to play a solid second half.  Christian Shonk would score midway through the 3rd quarter on a 2 yard run.  The Miners would strike again early in the 4th quarter when Ty Boyd connected with Aden Davis for a 10 yard touchdown pass.  The Miners narrowed the gap to 32-22 with a few minutes left in the game.  The Miners wouldn't see the endzone again.  They lost 32-22.  

On offense the Miners were lead by Ty Boyd, who ran for 81 yards on 13 carries.  He also ran and threw for a touchdown.  Nolan Delph chipped in with 61 yards on 7 carries.  Christian Shonk chipped in 31 yards and a score.  Aden Davis caught passes for 21 yards and a touchdown
The defense was led by Ty Boyd who tallied 8 tackles.  Nolan Delph chipped in 6 tackles, while Christian Shonk added 4 tackles.  
The 8th grade game followed the 7th graders.  The 8th graders got of to a strong start with a 62 yard drive that ended with Hunter Gennicks diving in for the TD from 1 yard out.  The Miners led 8-0.  The next Miner possession was also successful.  Hunter Gennicks connected with Mason Cooper on a 25 yard touchdown pass.  The Miners led 16-0 early in the 2nd quarter.  Once again the defense forced Batchelor into a 3 and out.  The Miners struck again when Gennicks connected with Jordan Cullum for a 20 yard TD pass.  The Miners led 22-0.  Late in the 4th quarter Logan Jerrells sacked the QB to turn the ball over to the Miners with 6 seconds left in the 1st half.  On the last play of the half, Gennicks connected with Cullum on a 38 yard TD pass.  The Miners led 30-0 at the half.  The 2nd half was more of the same.  The Miners continued to control the clock on the ground.  Late in the 3rd quarter, Logan Jerrells scored on a 46 yard TD run.  The Miners led 36-0.  A running clock in the 4th quarter limited the Miner possessions, but the defense continued to dominate that side of the ball.
Offensively, the Miners were led by Hunter Gennicks and his 3 passing TDs.  He also threw for 138 yards and ran for a score.  Jordan Cullum led the receiving corps with 3 catches for 76 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Logan Jerrells led the rushing attack with 80 yards on 3 carries.  He also scored one TD.  Blake House contributed over 60 through 2 catches and a rushing attempt.  The offensive line of Wrigley Franklin, Brady Cox, Aidan Giles, Nathan Watson, and Kayden Anderson dominated the line of scrimmage.
Defensively, the Miners were dominant.  As a unit, they gave up less than 100 yards total offense and only 3 first downs.  Mason Cooper, Wrigley Franklin, Hunter Johns, and Logan Jerrells led the defense with 6-8 tackles a piece.  Jerrells, Cooper, Franklin, and Canaan Bowers did an excellent job forcing a very athletic QB to scramble and get rid of the ball before he was ready.  
The 8th grade is attempting to be the 1st MS team to go undefeated and untied throughout their 7th and 8th grade years.
Both teams will play their home opener this Monday, August 20th vs. Terre Haute.
