ATTICA, Ind. – It has been a tough past three weeks for the Attica football team, but much of that changed on a night where they defeated the visiting Covington Trojans by the score of 67-0.
Three weeks ago, Carson Davis left the Rockville game with a concussion and missed the past two weeks. Center Casey Broadwater torn knee ligaments and fullback Tyler Jordan broke his hand.
All of these things required the Rambler coaching staff to juggle their lineup in the past three games.
Against Covington, Davis returned and Jordan moved to the offensive line and the team seemed to re-gel according to head coach Ryan Good.
“I think all the bad things that went wrong for us in the past three weeks went our way tonight,” said Good. “Everything I called seemed to work better than I expected it to.”
It was certainly a night when the Attica offense clicked – especially for quarterback Brady Sheridan.
The senior ran 10 yards for the first Attica touchdown and later in the first quarter carried for another, this one from 36 yards out.
In between those two scores, the Ramblers blocked a punt with Cody Parker getting to the ball and Bradley Green carrying it for a touchdown.
After the first quarter, it was 21-0 and the Ramblers continued to score as the second period started. Lance Worrall picked up 17 yards then Sheridan ran the ball in from 15 yards out for his third touchdown of the night.
Down 28-0, Covington showed their spirit with their best drive of the night on the next possession.
The Trojans used a trio of backs to carry the ball. Gage Hegg, Gabe Newlin and Trace Coffing all helped move the ball into Attica territory, but Damon DeSutter then broke into the backfield to force a Covington punt.
“I’ll have to look at the video to see everybody on the defense that played well, but Damon DeSutter stood out to me,” said Good of his linebacker. “He seemed like he was always in their backfield disrupting things.”
