Orioles fall in season opene

FISHERS — Despite a strong performance by sophomore quarterback Brandon Peters and an offense that sustained several long drives, the Avon football team fell to host Hamilton Southeastern 28-7 on Friday night.

Though the Orioles were able to move the ball much of the night, it was finishing drives where they had their issues.

“I did think that we had some opportunities in the course of the game,” Avon coach Mark Bless said. “We moved the ball well early and even late, but we need to figure out a way to get it in the end zone. We did not capitalize and finish our drives.”

The Royals began the game on a nine-play, 85-yard drive. Quarterback Tyler Janney capped the drive by getting loose and scampering in for the game’s first score.

The Orioles responded with an 11-play, 77-yard drive of their own. However, they were not able to capitalize and the drive resulted in a missed field goal.

Hamilton Southeastern struck again, as Janney scored on an 18-yard run with 11:12 remaining in the second quarter.

Hamilton Southeastern got off to a quick start in the second half as well. After an Avon turnover on downs, it took the Royals only two plays before Janney hit Chris Ford on a 52-yard touchdown strike to give them a 21-0 advantage with 8:50 remaining in the third quarter.

Soon after, the Orioles received a gift, as Janney threw a high pitch and Avon recovered the fumble deep in the Royals' red zone. Peters responded by hitting Sam Bloom on an 8-yard pass on third down for a score.

Janney hit Ford on another long touchdown, this one for 47 yards, to ice the game for Hamilton Southeastern.

In his first varsity start, Peters led the way for the Orioles, going 12 of 21 for 176 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
