Eagles no match for Piedmont
Piedmont had little trouble with Eisenhower Friday as they cruised to a 31-0 halftime lead en route to a 52-12 victory over the Eagles at Cameron Stadium.
Coming off their huge win against Carl Albert last week, the Wildcats were running on all cylinders against Ike this week. The Wildcats racked up 455 yards of total offense with 372 coming on the ground.
Senior back Devontae Pickard led the way for the Wildcats with 24 carries for 194 yards and three touchdowns.
The Eagles also had a couple of bright spots in the second half as sophomore running back TreVaughn Walton returned a kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown. Walton also broke through the middle late in the 4th quarter for a 70-yard touchdown.
The Wildcats scored on their first drive of the game as an excellent kickoff return by Pickard set the Wildcats up in Ike territory at the 39-yard line. Seven rushing plays later the Wildcats were on the board 7-0.
After an Eisenhower three-and-out series, the Wildcats again marched down the field in seven plays, traveling 47 yards for the score and a 14-0 lead.
In Piedmont’s third series of the game they actually threw a pass, one of only three on the night for the Wildcats. This one was for a 19-yard touchdown that put them up 21-0 as the clock hit all zeros in the first quarter.
Piedmont would add another touchdown and a 37-yard field goal to their tally to go up at the break 31-0. In the first half Piedmont not only dominated time of possession, they also totaled 218 yards to the Eagles’ 52 yard.
