Walk Don’t Run

Tyrone freshman Ashton Walk had over 300 yards passing and three touchdowns as the Golden Eagle offense had a breakout week in a 38-7 win over the Philipsburg-Osceola Mounties.

Not to be overshadowed by the offense, the Tyrone defense was also dominant, giving up only one touchdown late in the game and 184 total yards.

The game began with a three and out for P-O. Tyrone’s offense came out firing with a first play 70-yard touchdown catch and run by senior Corrie Beck from Walk.

Beck had an outstanding game against the Mounties with 134 yards receiving.

“We started the game with an ok kick and then our defense really set the tone by getting a three and out. I knew that play was going to be the first one run [on offense] and it just kept the momentum going,” said Beck.

Walk proved that he can take the pressure of starting quarterback by completing 11 of 19 passes and throwing 3 touchdown passes with no interceptions on 309 yards through the air.

Walk did a good job of spreading the ball around to his playmakers on the edge. Trent Smith, Ross Gampe, Court Rhodes, and Deegan Balduf would all get involved and make big plays to keep the Tyrone offense on the field. Brady Ronan and Kolton Miller also had 51 total yards rushing, and Miller added two touchdowns on the ground.

After the big first play, the Golden Eagles kept up the pressure on a 30-yard field goal from Keegan Gwinn. Gwinn was 5/5 on extra points along with the field goal giving him 8-points scored on the game.

Walk would continue his game through the air, connecting on a 26-yard touchdown pass to Rhoades.

The next Eagle touchdown would come on the ground from junior Kolton Miller who slithered his way into the endzone on a 17-yard TD run.

Tyrone would go into halftime up 24-0. After the half, Tyrone wouldn’t let up. With another defensive stop, the Eagle offense drove down the field, and Walk connected with Rhodes again for a 26-yard touchdown pass.

Tyrone still had more to give when late in the fourth quarter Tyrone scored on another Miller run for 11 yards.

PO’s only score would come in the final seconds of the game against Tyrone’s JV team when Gustkey threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to Johnson.

Tyrone hopes to keep the wins coming against a tough Hoilidaysburg opponent on Friday, October 23rd  in Hollidaysburg.
