West Vigo shut out for first time this season

WEST TERRE HAUTE — For the first time this season, West Vigo was shut out in high school football.

Trailing only 7-0 at halftime, the Vikings could not prevent visiting Owen Valley from racking up four second-half touchdowns in a 34-0 Western Indiana Conference loss Friday night at Jay Barrett Field.

The Patriots from Spencer tallied their only TD of the first half eight seconds into the second quarter when junior quarterback Evan Wood rolled right and fired a 6-yard strike to K.J. Terrell in the end zone.

Midway through the second period, West Vigo attempted a 22-yard field goal that was blocked and returned all the way across the field for an apparent Owen Valley touchdown. Fortunately for the Vikings’ supporters, that score was negated by a penalty during the return.

The Vikings threatened to reach paydirt late in the second quarter — thanks in large part to a pair of pass-interference penalties that put them in Owen Valley territory — but a sack on QB Jimmy Maples and a fourth-down incompletion snuffed out those hopes.

With 8:51 left in the third quarter, Wood caused more damage when he faked a handoff and rolled right all the way to the end zone from 20 yards out.

Wood, who also played defensive back, intercepted a Maples pass on the home team’s next possession. Then he led the Patriots on an eight-play, 62-yard drive that culminated with his 5-yard TD pass to Austin Boyd, boosting the visitors’ advantage to 21-0.

Owen Valley’s first possession of the fourth period resulted in a 10-yard touchdown burst by Dilan Daniel on his first carry of the game.

With the outcome becoming more obvious at this stage, West Vigo coach Jeff Cobb inserted freshman Joe Creasey at quarterback. But the youngster was intercepted twice in the final 12 minutes — once by Seth Sparks and once by Cameron King.

In between, Owen Valley put up its final TD of the night on a 1-yard run by workhorse Dylan Townsend, who led the team in rushing with 80 yards on 19 carries, including six in a row to conclude the third quarter.

Wood finished an efficient 15 of 18 in the passing department, good for 174 yards, while rushing eight times for 29 yards.

From the West Vigo perspective, the Vikings managed only 65 yards through the air and 57 yards on the ground. Their quarterbacks were sacked four times.
