Williamsburg rebounds with 54-6 win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Yellow Jackets came into Friday’s game against Allen Central hoping to rebound from a heart-stopping loss to Oneida Baptist last week.

Jerry Herron and company did just that as they cruised to a 54-6 win, improving to 5-1 on the season.

The Yellow Jackets tallied 313 yards of total offense with 94 yards on the ground and 209 yard through the air.

Chase Lowrie and Jefferson Patrick led the way with 31 yards and one touchdown each in the game.Skyler Griffith led the way with 93 yards and two touchdowns on two receptions, while Michael Rose-Creekmore had three receptions for 37 yards and Corey Shelton caught three passes for 68 yards and one touchdown. Dalton Sizemore completed 9-of-13 pass attempts for 201 yards and three touchdowns.

After the game, Herron said he was pleased with the way his team played and said they conducted themselves the way he expected.

“Allen Central runs a similar scheme as Oneida and we were able to see that last week, so I think that helped us,” Herron said. “Our kids knew what to do and they just lined up and played some good solid defense.

“Offensively we were clicking and they were just having trouble covering our receivers,” he added. “It was a good win for us and we head into our bye week on a good note.”

Williamsburg will take a week off before they open district play at home against Campbellsville. Herron said there is plenty to work on between now and then.

“We’ll have a junior varsity game Monday and that will give some of our young kids to get some reps in,” Herron said. “Our varsity kids will take some time off and really, the big thing we have to try to do is heal.

“We’ve played six games and we’re banged up, so we’re just going to spend a lot of time in the training room licking our wounds,” he added. “We’ll be going for win number 400 in the school’s history next week, so that’s a pretty big deal for us. Hopefully we’ll be ready to go.”
