After last week’s disappointing loss to rival Shelby County, the Colonels traveled to Fern Creek looking to rebuild last night and that’s exactly what they did, blitzing the hapless Tigers 37-6.
The game started off slowly though with neither Fern Creek nor Oldham County scoring in the first quarter. For a team that came into the game averaging over 26 points a game, this one looked to be a shootout.
After about three minutes in the second quarter, those thoughts were quickly left in the dust as Brett Strnad threw a 30-yard strike to Addison Deckard for the first of many touches for Deckard.
Fern Creek’s offense was a little slow getting started, not even breaking the 50 yard line in the first half, but their offense, or the lack thereof, would be a mute issue with the way that Oldham County’s defense was playing. Jacob Taylor and Jacob Schindler both had interceptions at key moments of the game.
Jacob Taylor’s interception came with just under a minute left in the first half and seemed to knock the Tigers all but out. He would make it worse with just 13 seconds left in the half though, scampering in from just 5-yards out to give Oldham County a 20-0 lead.
The Colonels put the nail in the coffin in the 3rd quarter as Deckard ran it in for six points from 30-yards out.
The Colonels have a big game next week at Eastern High School where they take on the 5-2 Eagles. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30pm.
