Greeneview’s ground game runs over Madison-Plains

Information by Ed LeGault


JAMESTOWN – Rams tough.


When the Madison-Plains High School headed to take on Greeneview in a conference match-up, they knew it would be a difficult time stopping the Rams.


In the end, it was the Greeneview running game that dominated the contest as the host Rams used five rushing touchdowns to defeat the visiting Golden Eagles 35-0 Friday.


A pair of touchdowns each by Rams Cole Dehaven and Rylan Hurst proved to be too much for Madison-Plains.


Greeneview’s first offensive series was a fine representative of their grounded game plan. The Rams used an 11-play, 64 yard drive which ended in Dehaven run in from four yards out.


The Madison-Plains defense did its best to slow down the Rams in the first quarter with nice plays by Golden Eagles Tyson Guiette and Scott Sanford.


Following a MP turnover, the Rams had a short field. The result was Dehaven taking it in for his second rushing touchdown.


Just five minutes later it was Hurst barreling in from a yard out to give the home team a 21-0 lead at the break.


Greeneview stuck with the ground game in the second half as they got third quarter rushing TDs from Keegan Phillips and Hurst to conclude the scoring.


Next week Madison-Plains hosts Southeastern.
