Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville loses to Watseka, 40-0 on OHS Homecoming
Sports Editor

Effort continues to get better, but results remain the same for Oblong-Palestine-Hutsonville's football team.

OPH dropped its fourth game in as many outings Friday (Sept. 20) and the third by a lopsided margin, as they were defeated 40-0 by visiting Watseka on Homecoming in Oblong.

"Our kids played with class and sportsmanship tonight," OPH head coach Chad Pusey said. "They played the toughest game they've played all year. I am very proud of them no matter what the final score was. We will keep moving forward."

A slow start again doomed OPH, as they dug themselves a 20-0 hole after one quarter and they never recovered. The margin grew to 33-0 by halftime, then Watseka tacked on another score in the third quarter to set the running clock in motion due to the IHSA's 40-point mercy rule.

OPH managed less than one-fourth of the total yards Watseka was able to rack up, as the Warriors won the total yardage battle 414-104.

Gavin Postlewaite led OPH with 57 yards rushing, while Reeve Dennis added 24 and Levi Beard had 21. OPH had three players throw passes, but they completed just two of five for five yards.

Drew Wittenborn led Watseka with 237 yards passing and two touchdowns, with Brayden Haines catching two passes for 81 yards and a touchdown, while Jameson Cluver ran for 71 yards and three scores, Ethan Labelle caught three passes for 76 yards and a touchdown and Conner Curry added 63 yards receiving and returned a punt for a touchdown.
