Wynford Football

Royals Plow Eagles

By: Todd Enders

On a wet and windy night, the Wynford Royals defeated the Colonel Crawford Eagles 41-14 and remained in control of the Iron Plow Trophy. Each schools FFA organization came up with the idea 2 years ago and it has become a tradition during the rivalry. Wynford improves to 2-1 while the Eagles fall to 2-1 taking their first defeat of the season. 

The Royals were lead by an impressive ground attack with Zach Hoffman and Nick Looker leading the way with a combined total of 289 rushing yards. Hoffman was the leading rusher with 176 yards while Looker added 113 yards. Wynford's 6 scores were all rushing with 3 each by Hoffman and Looker. Hoffman also contributed 4 of 7 passing on the wet evening for 102 yards.

The first quarter looked as if the game was going to be a close match up between the rivalries. The Royals got on the board first scoring quickly on a 15 yard run by Hoffman after the Eagles fumbled on their first possession. Colonel Crawford came right back scoring on their next possession making it 7-7.

The Eagles stopped the Royals on 4th and short and connected on a 10 yard pass play to increase their lead to 14-7. This was the last of the Eagles scoring on the night. The Royals defense was just to much for the Eagles. Wynford managed to tie the game at 14-14 before half with 4 seconds remaining on a 6 yard run by Looker.

The Royals offensively plowed through the Eagles defense in the second half and held Crawford to just 9 total yards offense.

This was a great victory for the Royals and they will host the Carey Blue Devils Friday night on senior night.
