Colonials Clobber Indians behind Beans’ 4 TD’s
After coming off of an impressive 55-14 win last week over the Rockets of James Buchanan, the New Oxford Colonials kept pouring on the offense by clobbering the Waynesboro Indians 51-14 Friday night in New Oxford.
The Colonials did not take long to get on the scoreboard, scoring 12 seconds into the game after Hunter Ringrose knocked the ball out of the Indians returner’s hands. The ball was scooped up by Keegan Romanoff and returned for the touchdown. The extra point bounced off of the left up-right, but early on, the Colonials took a 6-0 lead. The result would be repetitive all night, the Colonial offense scoring on the ground. Colonial running back Wesley Beans scored on a 55-yard rush a few minutes after the opening kickoff score to boost the Colonials to a 13-0 lead. Later in the quarter, Beans added a 50-yard rushing touchdown to his stats. The Colonials held a 20-0 lead after the first quarter alone behind Beans 120+ yard performance, and it would not stop there. Waynesboro did appear to score a touchdown late in the quarter on a 79-yard TD pass, but was called back due to receiver Matt Peck stepping out of bounds and coming back on the field of play.
Waynesboro would get on the scoreboard early in the 2nd quarter on a 3-yard touchdown rush by back Brett Mohn. The TD was set up due to a big reception by Austin Hanshew from quarterback Nathan Toney. Beans however would not be outdone in this game, answering by running 68 yards for the touchdown this time, and propelling the OX to a 27-7 lead at the half.
The Colonials would come out of the gates hot again in the second half, marching right down the field and scoring on a 33-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Anthony Lippy to Romanoff. Wanyesboro would score later int he quarter on a 1-yard TD rush by Toney bringing the score to 34-14 at the end of the 3rd. Ultimately, the star of the night was Wes Beans, who would tack on his 4th TD of the night, this time on a 10-yard rush early in the fourth quarter. An interception by safety Jake Massicot would stop the Indians’ push for pride. The INT would set up a 19 yard touchdown run by third-string running back Josh Shultz, bringing the score to 48-14 with 9:36 remaining in the game. The final Colonial score would come by way of field goal, a 37-yard kick by Trey Parrish, who also was 6 of 7 on extra points. The game ended with the Colonials prevailing, 51-14.
Despite some sloppy penalties by the Colonials, the managed to poor on the offense for the second straight week. Beans ran for over 200 yards in this game and had four touchdowns. The passing game never seemed to get going for the OX tonight, completing only a single-digit number of passes between Lippy and back-up Corban Czap, but who needs to pass when you have a running back like Beans. The defense was led by Hunter Ringrose who seemed to be everywhere on the field tonight, making key stops behind the line of scrimmage and have both a forced fumble and fumble recovery. Shultz also had a fumble recovery late in the 4th quarter. The secondary did a very good job against the shotgun prominent offense run by the Indians. Leading the Indians on offense was wide-receiver Matt Peck who had a few big catches on the night, including a 45-yard reception. Defensively, the Indians had a few chances to capitalize on bad throws from Colonial QB’s, but never managed to force a turnover on the night.
The Colonials (2-1, 0-0) have scored 106 points in the past two weeks, while managing to only give up 28 points. This shows how dominant the Colonials have been early in the season. They will travel to The Corral next Friday night to take on former Division I rival Southwestern (1-2) in a tough head-to-head match-up. This game should be a challenge for the Colonials, but could show the York-Adams league that there is a new threat in the league if able to pull off the victory. Meanwhile, the Indians of Waynesboro fall to 0-3 on the season and will take on James Buchanan next week.
