Coyle Seniors

The Coyle Bluejackets made quick work of the Deer Creek-Lamont Eagles last Friday night winning 58-12 in a game called at halftime due to the mercy rule. The score was 50-12 after the first quarter. 

The sign of things to come started when the Eagles fumbled the opening kickoff giving the Bluejackets the ball. Damon Caine would score the first of seven touchdowns with 10:49 left in the first quarter.

The Eagles caught the Bluejackets on the kickoff return for 81 yards by Dawson Silks and it was quickly 6-6. 

Caine would then break loose on touchdown runs from 57 and 43-yard out followed by an 85-yard interception return for touchdown and with 6:46 still left in the first quarter it was 28-6.

The Eagles finally hooked up on an 85-yard pass play from Palladin Compala to Gavin Wallace to close the gap to 28-12. 

Caine would then score on 53,85 and 50-yard runs and with two conversions, it was 50-12 after the first quarter.

The Bluejackets only threw three passes all night, but a hook up between Kris Boynton and Kenan Whiteside from 15-yards out with the Whiteside conversion closed out the scoring and the game. 

Caine only touched the ball nine time on offense and ran for 314 yards. Kenan Whiteside ran the ball the only other rushing play for four yards and completed both pass attempts for 59 yards with Boynton being the recipient both times.

It took Coyle 14 plays to score 58 points Friday night while the visiting Eagles ran 52 plays for only 183 yards.

 On the defensive side of the ball, senior Ethan Jennings had 12 tackles to lead the way. Seniors Sharkey Booher and Vershon Whiteside each had a sack. Seniors Phillip Cummings and Caine each had an interception. Junior Jesse Faulkner recovered the opening kick-off that stated the rout. 

The Bluejackets (7-2,4-1) have secured a playoff spot but travel to Bluejacket (5-2,3-2) Friday night for the final game of the year. A win by the visiting Bluejackets gives them second place in the district and a home game in the first round of the playoffs on November 15. A loss would have three teams tied at 4-2 in the district.
