IndianHawks dominate in win over Colonels
Senior quarterback Stephen Talbert relied on his feet more than his arm and the defense was swarming in a 64-0 victory for Clopton-Elsberry (2-0) over Missouri Military Academy (0-2) on Friday, Aug. 26. Talbert ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries in the contest.
As a team, the IndianHawks ran for 270 yards on 32 attempts, good for a 8.4 average per rush. The passing was seldom used during the game, with junior receiver Blake Kendall leading the way with five receptions for 42 yards and a score. “Our offensive attack was more rushing this week, when in week one it was more passing,” Head Coach Mike Scheibel said. “But we like to air it out.” The defense was a brick wall, racking up 14 tackles for loss, five fumble recoveries and an interception.
Senior Donovan Guccione had nine tackles (eight solo) and four tackles for loss, senior outside linebacker Collin Locklard had nine tackles (seven solo) and two tackles for loss. Senior defensive end Paul Brickey and sophomore defensive end/ outside linebacker Trevor Anthony each had two tackles for loss. Anthony added two fumble recoveries and two touchdowns. Our defense is playing day and night better than last year,” Scheibel said. The quick start to the year isn’t the end goal for this team.
“We are staying focused by making sure that we know we haven’t really accomplished anything yet,” Scheibel said. “The boys have taken well to it and are still hungry to prove themselves. Having 10 seniors can do that for you.” The IndianHawks look to keep rolling against Bowling Green on at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, on the road.
