Olpe shuts out Northern Heights 61-0 on Area Game of the Week Featured

The Olpe Eagles picked up a dominating 61-0 shutout victory over the Northern Heights Wildcats Friday evening.

Olpe would open the scoring early in the first half with a 12-yard touchdown run by senior Chris Olson. The Eagles would then capitalize on three consecutive turnovers by the Wildcats to establish a 27-0 lead at the end of the first.

Olpe added 21 more unanswered points in the second to head into the locker room leading 48-0. Two more scores in the second half, both by junior Derek Hoelting, including a one-play 44-yard touchdown run to start the second, would see Olpe clinch their seventh consecutive win of the season.

Hoelting says they came ready to play from start to finish.

 

Head coach Chris Schmidt says there are always areas that can be improved, but overall his team had a great night.

 

Olson led Olpe offensively with 119 yards rushing. Northern Heights was led by senior Cody Medlen with 21 yards rushing.

Olpe managed 341 yards of total offense. Northern Heights ended the night with 43 total yards.

Olpe now improves to 7-0 on the season and 5-0 in district play while Northern Heights falls to 1-6 on the season and 1-4 in district play.
