Tomcats blank White Falcons

By Paul Boggs -

GLOUSTER, Ohio — A steady downpour definitely didn’t deter Kameron Curry.

That’s because Curry, in accounting for 24 of the Trimble Tomcats’ points on Friday night, rushed for four touchdowns on only 14 carries in spearheading host Trimble’s 46-0 shutout of the Wahama White Falcons at Glouster Memorial Stadium.

Curry scored on touchdown tallies of four and 28 yards — bookended by dashes of 57 and 50 yards.

Trimble scored at least a dozen points in each of the opening three quarters, as Curry — only 24 seconds into the fourth period — capped off the scoring with his 50-yard scamper.

Curry finished with a massive 185 yards on his 14 attempts, as Jacob Hardy had two touchdown receptions — for 25 and 44 yards from quarterback Gary Brooks.

Max Hooper had a one-yard touchdown run as well, but kicked four extra points, including all three of his second-half tries.

With the win, Trimble raised its record to 4-2 — and 4-1 in the Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division, setting up its huge showdown at undefeated Southern next Friday.

The loss left the White Falcons at an opposite 2-4 — and 1-4 in the TVC-Hocking.

Curry’s first TD — his 57-yard sprint only 16 seconds in — made it 7-0 with Hooper’s first of four extra points.

His four-yard plunge at the four-minute mark made it 13-0, as his 28-yard run three-and-a-half minutes into the second stanza made it 19-0.

With 4:22 left in the quarter, Brooks hit Hardy for his 25-yard touchdown strike.

Hooper’s run and Hardy’s second scoring reception occurred just six minutes apart in the third frame.

Brooks, who completed six of 11 passes for 92 yards, added 42 rushing yards on seven carries.

Hardy had four receptions for 73 yards, as the Tomcats outgained Wahama 374-48.

Wahama had just three first downs, only amounted five rushing yards on 27 attempts, fumbled nine times altogether, and punted seven times for only a 26-yard average.

Wyatt Edwards led the White Falcons with 14 rushing yards and 24 receiving yards.

Bryton Gates completed 5-of-13 passes for 43 yards with one interception.

Wahama had four total turnovers, as Trimble defeated the White Falcons for the fourth consecutive year.

The White Falcons return home, and return to TVC-Hocking Division action, next Friday night against Eastern.
