PREP FOOTBALL: Fairfield romps in a rout over Angola

BENTON — Dominating from the start, Fairfield’s Falcons overcame one little hiccup Friday night.

The Falcons scored twice in a 30-second span of the first quarter and steamrolled to a 53-14 Northeast Corner Conference high school football triumph over the Angola Hornets.

Angola scored on a 74-yard punt return just before halftime when Fairfield was trying to run out the clock. That got the Hornets within 26-14, but the Falcons quickly regained command in the third period.

All that occurred with several Fairfield players battling sickness most of the day. But, it was Angola (2-4) which left town not feeling so well as the Falcons improved to 5-1.

“Our defense and special teams are finally catching up with the offense,” said FHS coach Bob Miller. “I said when that happens we have a chance to be a pretty good football team.

“Our offensive line performed as good as it has all season. The defense continues to improve every week and came up with a score. And, we also scored on special teams.”

The Falcons’ offensive line features seniors Jodean Miller and Andrew Hagar at tackles, senior Reece Miller and sophomore Alec Brock at guards, senior Tyler Hostetler at center and senior Garrett Cole at tight end.

They helped Fairfield rack up 293 yards on the ground with senior Tony Zook having 135 on 13 carries and senior Cameron Kitson 83 on 15.

Kitson scored three touchdowns for the Falcons, both Kitson and sophomore Mitch DeWitt two and senior Lucas Miller one.

“I like where we are as a team with the second half of the season starting,” said Miller. “We were concerned with Angola because they gave Churubusco a tough game. We challenged our offensive to come up with a big effort.”

The Falcons drove 65 yards on 13 plays to take the early lead, Kitson blasting in from a yard out. Sophomore Reid Kammerdiener kicked the extra point for a 7-0 count with just 4:34 elapsed.

On Angola’s second play, an option pitch was errant and scooped up by DeWitt. He scooped up the ball and scored on a 45-yard run for a 13-0 tally at the 6:56 mark.

Zook added a touchdown later in the quarter and Kitson scored on a screen pass in the second quarter. Senior Austin Bauer tallied on the punt return for Angola as Falcon players thought the half was over.

“We were trying to milk the clock in those last couple minutes,” said Miller. “That is a good example that you can’t fall asleep at any time. We will learn from that and move one.”

Zook had runs of 41 and 43 yards during the third quarter, scoring on the first. Lucas Miller also found the end zone as FHS stretched its lead to 40-14.

DeWitt ran 33 yards on a reverse, getting a block from senior quarterback Kyle Mast, to score in the fourth stanza while Zook finished the scoring with 7:57 to play.

“Next Friday is our homecoming and we have Lakeland coming here for a big matchup,” said Miller. “They have been playing well and putting a lot of points on the board.”
