Motivated Orioles bury rival Bulldogs

AVON — With a strong second half, Avon turned a four-point game into a 41-13 trouncing of rival Brownsburg Friday night.

The Orioles led 17-13 at halftime, but big plays on offense and defense led to a 24-point whitewash over the final two quarters.

“We played good in the first half but kind of shot ourselves in the foot a few times,” Avon coach Mark Bless said. “We challenged them at halftime to clean things up. They did it, and the offensive line did a great job and the defense really stormed them.”

Despite the tally on the scoreboard, Brownsburg coach Brett Comer said it was a step forward for his young roster.

“I was proud of it, and I know that sounds ridiculous when you look at 41-13, but maybe it’s different if we just do the little things right that ended up snowballing,” Comer said. “We had some kids that made some big strides tonight.”

Avon (2-3) jumped out to a 6-0 lead just two minutes in as David Schall ran for a 65-yard touchdown on the game’s fourth play. Schall finished with 175 yards on 15 carries.

“He played a heck of a game and ran with a lot of authority,” Bless said.

After a sack by Avon’s Mack Duffin forced a punt on the next series, placekicker Nyles Edwards upped the Orioles’ advantage with a 35-yard field goal.

Brandon Dowers hit a 31-yard field goal to trim Avon’s lead in the second quarter, and Toks Akinribade put Brownsburg up 10-9 with a 55-yard TD run up the middle.

Avon went up 17-10 when Brandon Peters connected with Matt Moore for a 10-yard TD and Derrick Tennant for the two-point conversion, but Dowers hit a 47-yard field goal on the final play of the first half to cut the Orioles’ lead to four.
