BC feasts on diet of Adkins
NEW WASHINGTON - Michael Adkins ran for three scores and Austin McDonnell returned the second-half kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown Friday as Buckeye Central turned back New London, 28-19.
The teams entered the break knotted at 6 after New London's Derek Phillips bulled in from 3 yards out and Adkins scored on a 6-yard run, both in the second quarter.
McDonnell's kickoff return put the Bucks up 12-6, but the Wildcats countered with two Clay Wilson touchdowns, one on a 65-yard pass from Josh Hamilton and another on a 5-yard run, for a 19-12 advantage.
But Adkins and the Bucks answered back in the fourth, with the senior turning in TD runs of 8 and 11 yards to put the game away.
"We have a lot of new kids. Third quarter, New London really got after us and our kids responded. Some of the kids grew up in that fourth quarter and that was the biggest key right there," Buckeye Central coach Jason Ratliff said.
"We rely on Michael a lot, he's our workhorse," he said. "We need him to step up, and down the stretch he did that."
Adkins ran 20 times for 165 yards, equaling the output of New London's ground attack. Grant Loy went 6 of 12 through the air for 95 yards.
New London's Josh Hamilton hit on nine of his 16 passes for 139 yards. Wilson caught had three receptions for 83 yards.
