Oak Hall Routs Seven Rivers Christian, 70-14

Oak Hall dominated Seven Rivers Christian School, 70-14, in its first home football game of the season Friday.

Early Back-and-Forth

Oak Hall (3-0), having recovered the opening onside kick, began its first drive at midfield. After three plays and a first down, Oak Hall quarterback Dakota Brower took a draw to the right, making his way into the end zone from 36 yards out. The Eagles were successful on the conversion for an 8-0 lead.

Seven Rivers Christian (1-2) responded on the ensuing drive. Facing a fourth-and-16, quarterback Nathan Tidwell tossed a deep pass that was caught by Noah Magill for a 63-yard touchdown and the conversion tied the game at 8-all.

Oak Hall Offense Strikes

After Seven Rivers Christian’s score, Oak Hall quickly went to work. Briggs Copeland then broke away for a 47-yard touchdown run. Oak Hall again was successful on the two-point conversion for 16-8 lead.

After forcing a punt, Oak Hall’s Aaron Akins took a jet sweep to the Seven Rivers 20. The following play, Oak Hall captain and running back Abram Jenkins rushed for a 16-yard touchdown to give Oak Hall a 24-8 lead.

The Eagles proceeded to score three more touchdowns (15, 59 and 66 yards) before the five-minute mark of the second quarter for a 46-8 advantage.

After a touchdown by Seven Rivers Christian brought the score to 46-14, Oak Hall took a 54-14 lead at halftime when Brower scrambled to his right, made a defender miss and ran for a 56-yard touchdown.

Oak Hall Dominance

With the big Oak Hall advantage, the teams agreed to a running clock in the second half.

Oak Hall forced a fumble on the Sevens Rivers 26-yard line, and scored soon after on a Sirderick Farley 5-yard touchdown run.

The Eagles began to use reserve players the rest of the way.

“[The] defensive line played great, our linebackers played great, and the offensive line, of course, played well,” Oak Hall coach RJ Fuhr said.

He also discussed the  play of Brower:

Brower, who was named the “scoutSMART Florida Player of the Week” two weeks ago, praised the team’s preparation.

“I practice at multiple positions throughout the week, spending a little time on each.

“We scored on every offensive drive.”

Copeland also had a big game with the three touchdowns and 116 yards rushing on just five carriers.
