|OCS hosts West St. John In second round|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles bombed Oberlin High School in the first round of the Class-1A playoffs Friday night by a score of 61-14.
OCS (10-1) again relied on a vaunted passing attack and an incredible defensive effort to make the difference. West St. John will travel to Monroe for round two of the Class 1A playoffs this week.
Quarterback Jacob Davis began the scoring with a one-yard touchdown run in the game's opening minutes.
Colby Allen then found the endzone from 10-yards away following a three-and-out forced by the Eagles defense.
"We are playing hard and unselfish," OCS head coach Steven Fitzhugh said. "We are playing as a team and it is paying off for us."
Oberlin again had to punt to OCS and Matt Kennedy made them pay. Kennedy found daylight on a 35-yard jaunt to put OCS up 35-0.
Davis scored on another touchdown run to give OCS a 42-0 advantage at halftime. Davis added 170 yards on 5-of-10 passing and 57-yard touchdown pass to Mark Laird to cap his stellar playoff performance.
Dustin Andrews and Josh Greer each had second-half touchdown runs for OCS. Taylor Dawson again showed something special kicking the ball for OCS. Dawson was a perfect 9-of-9 on PAT kicks and even added a 49-yard field goal to his totals in the fourth quarter.
Oberlin running back Chad Strother had a rushing touchdown from 50-yards away to give Oberlin their first touchdown of the contest. Strother was the leading rusher for Oberlin, with 97 yards on 15 carries in the losing effort.
The OCS defense made such a swarm around the ball that Oberlin was limited to just 2-of-4 passing for two yards in the game.
Matt Kennedy had more yards individually than any other player with 127 yards rushing on six carries. Andrews had 70 yards and Allen finished with 18 yards rushing to balance the attack from OCS. Davis scored twice on the ground in short yardage situations.
West St. John, who defeated OCS in the playoffs three years ago, again travels to Eagle Stadium this week.
Known for a hard-nosed defense, WSJ has allowed over 14 points only three times this season.
The game is expected to be a defensive battle with each offense attempting to run effectively enough to score points and run the clock.
OCS appears to be the balanced attack that can do either or, but may see the most aggressive defense they have faced this season.
A mistake-free game is always what teams strive for this late in the season, it may be exactly what is needed for OCS from here until the end of the year.
