Sports Editor

Injuries added to the insult of another lopsided loss for Oblong High School's football team Friday night (Oct. 6).

The Panthers were battered and bruised both on the scoreboard and on the field in their 48-6 loss at Villa Grove-Heritage in Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division play.

Once again, Oblong dug themselves an early hole they could not climb out of on their way to a third straight lopsided loss. On top of that, the Panthers had a multitude of injuries, including all three players that play quarterback for the Panthers.

The game was scoreless until about midway through the first quarter, then Villa Grove-Heritage proceeded to score three times in a four-minute stretch to take a 20-0 lead. Villa Grove-Heritage then tacked on three more scores in the second quarter for a 42-0 halftime lead an added another score in the third period.

Oblong avoided being shut out thanks to Jayce Fielder's one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

The Panthers were only outgained 274-214 in the game, but the Panthers were unable to keep it close on the scoreboard.

Fielder led OHS with 100 yards rushing and a touchdown, while Logan Richards completed a pass to Nate Meese for 37 yards and Conner Potts completed a pass to Zane Belford for 30 yards.

Codie Baker led Villa Grove-Heritage with 109 yards passing and three touchdowns and rushed for a fourth score, while Michael Badgett ran for 39 yards and a touchdown and Zach Champagne added a touchdown run and an interception return for a score.
