Chasing perfection, Oakdale battles past game Middletown for football victory
MIDDLETOWN — It’s never an easy trip to win a football game at Middletown High, and Oakdale’s been in its fair share of seesaw battles in the valley. Even if the gap between the teams is larger than usual this season, with the Bears a Class 3A state title contender and the Knights rebuilding, that was no different Friday.
Football takes down Einstein 20–19
The football team (3–2) secured their second consecutive season victory against the Einstein Titans (2–3), 20–19, on Friday night. Einstein came out of the gates fast with a long first drive, resulting in a redzone rushing touchdown to take an early 7–0 lead. The Vikes immediately responded with a touchdown after junior quarterback Connor Werkman found senior receiver John Wayman in the endzone, tying the game up at seven all. The offense didn’t slow for either side as both teams tacked on more points before the half. The Titans broke off on a long 50-yard run for their second score of the half but fumbled the snap for the extra point. The Vikings again got the ball to Wayman in the red zone, who scored his second touchdown of the contest. Whitman has a 14–13 advantage heading into halftime.
MoCoShow High School Football Game of the Week: Churchill at Urbana (Preview/Prediction)
Urbana is 3-1. They played a very good Middletown team in Delaware and lost which wasn’t unexpected. They edged out a Middletown-MD team which is looking like the weakest Middletown team in years (admittedly the Knights have played admirably so far). They had a decent 28-0 win over TJ. Then last week they went into DC and outlasted Ballou in a 37-34 shootout. Based on their other results, Ballou looks like an average team in DC. It’s definitely been an interesting schedule for the Hawks, and one that’s tough to gauge based on final scores alone. We’ve been hunting for film but it’s been hard to come by; NFHS only has tape from the Middletown-DE and TJ games and we are much more interested in seeing how Urbana looked against the other two teams.
