Tyrone Bedevils Central Cambria

After a blowout 39-7 win against Huntington, The Tyrone Golden Eagles went into Central Cambria against The Red Devils with the mindset of running up the score and getting out of there early. 

To Tyrone’s surprise, Central Cambria wasn’t going to go down without a fight. This game was important. Not only did this game affect playoff pools for the Red Devils but it was also their senior night. These factors gave them a lot of motivation to come out on top. 

The game started off quietly however, both offenses couldn’t get any scores, which resulted in a scoreless first quarter. 

The second quarter started off with a 1-yard run play by Brady Ronan to give The Golden Eagles a 6-0 lead. Romani’s kick would make it 7-0. On the very next drive, Central Cambria completed a long 40-yard pass over the heads of Golden Eagle defensive backs to advance the ball to the 2-yard line. One play later the Red Devils ran the ball in for 6, but they failed to convert for the extra point.

Tyrone failed to complete anything on the next drive and was forced to punt. Luckily for The Golden Eagles, they were able to stop The Red Devils from doing anything offensively and closed out the half with a big sack from Andrew Weaver and Braeden Ewing.

“We obviously weren’t happy with our first half, but we had to put it in the past and focus on playing better in the second half”, Said senior receiver Andrew Weaver. 

Going into the second half, Tyrone started off with the ball and made sure that they did something with it. After 4 straight-out routes to Eli Woomer, Tyrone gave the ball to Brady Ronan who exploded for a 20-yard touchdown to improve the Golden Eagle lead to 8 points.

The Tyrone Defense started to dominate, forcing The Red Devils to punt after just 8 plays. The Golden Eagle’s Offensive side finally came to life as a broken play resulted in a 66-yard touchdown reception for Andrew Weaver. 

A fourth down stop gave Tyrone the Ball back on the Central Cambria 25-yard line. After a couple of Seth Hoover runs Tyrone was on the 7-yard line. On the very next play, Ashton Walk converted to Austin Lucas for a 7-yard touchdown to make the score 28-7 to close out the third quarter. 

Halfway through the fourth quarter Seth Hoover drove The Golden Eagle offense down the field and closed it out with an 11-yard touchdown run. 

By this point, the score was 35-7 and pretty far out of reach for The Red Devils to make a comeback. Central Cambria did get on the board late in the fourth quarter to make the score 35-12 with about 2 minutes left to go in the game. 

At this point the second string was in for both teams and the Golden Eagles were forced to punt with about 1 minute left. Fortunately for the Tyrone defense, they were able to hold the Red Devils and close out the game. 

Even after that slow first half Tyrone simply dominated Central Cambria. The Golden Eagle offense accumulated 319 yards. 167 of those were rushing, and the other 152 passing. The Red Devils were held to just 288 total yards and only 12 points. 

“I felt like that was our best game of the year, both offensive and defensively. If we can continue playing like that we can have a great season”, Said Head Coach John Franco. 

This win improves The Golden Eagles record to 5-3 as they take on the 5-3 Penns Valley Rams at home. The game will start at 7:00 PM. at Grays Memorial Field this Friday.
