Methodical Midland Hands PHS 45-6 loss
......... ONA – Cabell Midland’s methodical ground game produced six touchdowns and 420 yards as the Knights handed injury-riddled Parkersburg a 45-6 setback here Friday night in a Mountain State Athletic Conference contest.
Chandler Schmidt scored four times, including a halfback option pass reception on one of only two passes attempted by the home team. Schmidt scored on runs of 13, nine and five yards and had the 20-yard TD catch from Alex Smith to lead the way as the Knights beat the Big Reds for the ninth straight time.
Jackson Fetty added one TD run and 150 yards rushing on 17 carries for the winners, now 4-1 after a loss two weeks ago to Huntington. Mason Moran added a TD and 87 yards on 11 carries and quarterback Ryan Wolfe rushed for 43 yards on five carries and completed his only pass attempt for eight yards.
The Big Reds, now 2-3 with a home game next week against Hurricane, wound up with minus 24 yards on the ground thanks mainly to a 22-yard sack and a couple of fumbles. In the air, sophomore David Parsons was 11 of 18 for 131 yards and one touchdown with one interception. Bryson Singer had the touchdown on a 10 yard diving catch and wound up with six receptions for 82 yards on the night while Anthony Ice caught four passes for 36 yards.
Midland won the coin toss, elected to receive and Smith made that the correct move with a 58 yard kickoff return. Four running plays later Fetty scored from the three with just 1:36 gone in the game. Olivia Charles kicked the first of her six extra points and the route had begun.
The Knights scored on a 10-play, 73 yard drive on their next possession and got a fumble recovery after that on the Big Red 26 to set up their third score. A 70-yard drive follow for touchdown number four and with no time left on the clock in the second quarter Charles kicked a 20-yard field goal to make it 31-0 at the half.
The Big Reds showed signs of life to start the second half as they drove from their 37 to the Midland 13 for a first down but a 22-yard sack was followed by an interception in the end zone (and 35 yard return) to end the scoring chance.
A 67-yard drive by Midland produced another TD by Schmidt with 2:05 left in the third quarter.
Parsons and Singer hooked up to get PHS on the board on the final play of the third period, a 10-yard pass over the middle that came on a diving reception. Setting up the score was a 39 yard pass-catch-and-run by Singer. The Big Reds had to try for two points after that score because of an injury to outstanding kicker Casey Stanley.
Midland put the game into mercy-rule status by going 63 yards on seven plays after the PHS score. Schmidt’s final touchdown came on a five yard run with 7:40 on the clock.
