Walton Clinces clinch division title



Phil Hanley rushed for 266 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries to lead visiting Walton to a 72-0 thumping of Harpursville as the Warriors clinched the Section Four Football Conference's Division VII championship Saturday.

Defending Class D state champion Walton (7-0, 3-0) won its 20th straight game.

Hanley had scoring runs of 19 and 30 yards in the first quarter. He followed with TD runs of 31 and 36 yards in the second quarter to help the Warriors open a 42-0 lead at halftime.

Walton held the Hornets (3-4, 0-3) to minus-1 yard, including minus-36 on the ground.

The Warriors played without top rusher Bryant Mead and two-way lineman Adam Finch, who also handles the team's kickoff duties. Walton coach Jim Hoover said Mead tweaked something in his lower back in a 68-12 victory over Oxford on Oct. 11 and sat out this week as a precaution.

Finch, who plays offensive and defensive tackle, injured his right knee at school this week and likely will miss Walton's first playoff game at 1:30 p.m. this Saturday at against visiting Bainbridge-Guilford, Hoover said. Walton is Division VII's top seed. B-G (4-3, 2-1) finished second in Division VIII.

"It would be nice to have everybody healthy," Hoover said. "The only game we've had where everybody was healthy was against Sidney. We've had people out every game. It'd be nice to have everybody back."Walton, the top-ranked Class D team in the state, finished with 470 rushing yards against Harpursville. Eddie Dickson had 88 yards and two touchdowns on six carries, and Cody Reed finished with 52 yards and a TD on five touches. Robbie Rigas, Jim MacDonald and Aaron Holdosi also scored for the Warriors.


Phil Hanley scored four first-half touchdowns and piled up 206 yards on 12 carries, helping visiting Walton improve to 7-0 with a win at Harpursville.


Hanley scored on runs of 20, 31, 31 and 35 yards over the first two quarters as Walton grabbed a 42-0 halftime lead. Eddie Dickson chipped in 97 yards on the ground, plus two more touchdowns, and four other players -- Robbie Rigas, Cody Reed, Evan Boyd and Aaron Holdosi -- added a touchdown each.


Todd Terpstra had a game-high 19 rushing yards for Harpursville.
