For the third straight season Hamilton starts goes 2-1 after beating Milford (0-3), 29-10. With the score tied at seven in the second quarter, Isaiah Lewis returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown that started a 15-0 run by the Big Blue to put the game out of reach. The Eagles would score just three points after halftime. It is the only three points that Hamilton has given up in the second half the past two contests.
Everyone pitches in the victory. Sophomore quarterback, Zach Keene went 8/11 for 96 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in his first varsity start. Tyler Denton was on the receiving end of both of Keene’s scoring tosses. Denton had six receptions for a second straight week. Senior Tallan Haggard ran for a career high 110 yards rushing. Classmate Marcus Oliver had his longest touchdown run when he broke off a 60-yard scamper to start the scoring. Quintin Bailey led the Big Blue with 112 all-purpose yards. Kicker AJ Morrison nailed a career long 46-yard field goal.
Milford ran the ball fairly effectively averaging 7.1 yards per carry on the night. Cade Williams had a game high 140 yards on the ground. Quarterback Cy Overbeck also had 106 yards rushing and the Eagles lone touchdown in the loss.
Hamilton will host undefeated Sycamore (3-1) in their GMC opener on Friday night. Milford will go to Woodward in duel between two squads looking for their first win.
