Falcons top Rox, remain undefeated

North Vermillion gets fifth shutout of season in 39-0 win

CAYUGA — The North Vermillion defense and quarterback Brayden Woodard proved too strong for Rockville on Friday night.

The undefeated Class A No. 2-ranked Falcons earned their fifth shutout of the season with a 39-0 victory over the Rox. The win moved the Falcons to 6-0 overall and 5-0 in the Wabash River Conference, setting up a showdown game next week at Fountain Central.

Rockville started the night scoring 34 points per game and giving up 19. The Falcons’ defense not only shut out the Rox, but held the visitors to just 182 yards of total offense. Quarterback Keiontré Wilkey led the Rox with 85 yards on 22 carries.

North Vermillion rolled up 316 yards running the football, but big-play passes by Woodard set up the touchdowns. Woodard ran the football 21 times for 134 yards and Jacob Earl limited to the sideline with 119 rushing yards, including an 86 yard touchdown.

The Rox moved the football, but never got into the end zone because of the Falcon defense and two big turnovers.

After trading possessions in the opening quarter, North Vermillion recovered a Rockville fumble and immediately converted it into an 8-0 lead. On first play after the recovery, Woodard found Lee on a 43-yard pass play down the middle of the field. On the next snap, Woodard scored from the three-yard line.

The Falcons made it 8-0 when Abbott Dowers found Kyle Wickens on the two-point conversion.

Rockville put together a 15-play drive with Wilkey and Ben Cunningham carrying the football. But the drive stalled at the North Vermillion 21-yard line and the Falcons took over on downs.

The Falcons opened the second quarter with a 12-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. Woodard took off for runs of 14 and 13 yards and hooked up with Cody Wright for six yards, Jacob Earl for eight and with Lee for 17 yards to the Rockville 16-yard line.

Earl rushed for eight yards on one snap and eight yards on the next for a touchdown. Adam Scott’s point-after kick gave the Falcons a 15-0 lead that stood up into the second half.

Rockville opened the second half with a 55-yard drive to North Vermillion’s six-inch line. Wilkey broke free for a 29 yard and was stopped at the 1-yard line by an ankle tackle. On the Rox third down they fumbled the football and Lee recovered it for the Falcons.

On the third play, Earl started to run inside, then did a slide step outside the tackle and run untouched 86 yards for the touchdoiwn an a 22-0 lead with 7:10 to play in the third quarter.

Starting with the fumble recovery, the Falcons scored the first three times they got the football in the second half.

With Matt Kingrey, Robby Davis, Zeth Jumps and Tommy Harrison leading the way, North Vermillion forced the Rox to put. On the third place, Woodard hooked up with Lee for a 156-yard gain, then on the next snap, kept the ball himself for a 39-yard touchdown run.

North Vermillion even scored kicking the ball. Leading 29-0, the Falcons’ sent kicker Adam Scott on to the field and the junior hit a 27-yard field goal.
