Yellow Jackets cap off regular season with a 21-0 road win

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

OLIVER SPRINGS, TENN. — Williamsburg was without four starters on offense and defense, but still managed to pull out a 21-0 road win against Oliver Springs, Tenn. Friday.

The 21-point victory allowed the Yellow Jackets to finish the regular season with a 9-1 record for the first time since the 2008 season.

“We had eight total starters out, but we still managed to win,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron said. “First of all, Oliver Springs is a good team. I felt like we were stopping them good and once we settled down we did a good job.”

Neither team scored in the first half, but an 11-yard touchdown strike from Dalton Sizemore to Corey Shelton with 5:23 remaining in the third quarter gave Williamsburg a 6-0 lead.

Another touchdown pass (a 23-yarder) from Sizemore to Shelton at the 10:39 mark of the fourth quarter increased the Yellow Jackets’ lead to 14-0 advantage. Herron’s squad put the finishing touches on the win as Sizemore and Shelton hooked up for a 15-yard touchdown.

Sizemore carried the ball 21 times for 77 yards while connecting on 16-of-26 pass attempts for 188 yards and three touchdowns. Shelton finished the game with nine catches for 135 yards and three touchdowns.

“I’m really pleased with our guys,” Herron said. “They played really good and got the job done. I thought we made the right adjustments at halftime and the kids bought in and took care of the game.”

Williamsburg will be back in action Friday and will host Jenkins in the first round of the Class A playoffs. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m.
