South Oldham 14 North Oldham 0


Recommended Posts

First off, let me apologize for the technical snafus that bit Pegasus tonight. We got on the air finally midway through the first quarter. Anyone who turned off the internet because they didn't think we were going to get on - the game is now on our site as an archive and you can still watch it. (we only missed the each team's first possession.) Again, my apologies for anyone missing out.


On to the game....


North rarely gets shut out.


In fact, this is the first time in school history that North has been shut out in back to back games.


Since 2003, when North opened, the team has been shut out 10 times - 7 of those came in 2004-2005-2006 (note that the team went 3-7, 1-9, and 0-10 those seasons). They were shut out by Christian Academy of Louisville 19-0 in 2013. Now back to back blankings in 2015.


Kudos to South for a great game plan and - especially - tremendous defensive execution. North had run for 300+ yards in each of the last three North-South meetings, but came nowhere close tonight as South limited the Mustangs to just 99 yards rushing, unofficially, and 169 total offensive yards.


Both teams' defenses played extraordinary ball, but South took advantage of the few breaks in the game. In particular, a muffed punt that gave South the ball deep in North territory, leading to one of the scores.


SOHS sophomore quarterback Drew Zaubi at times looked very, very good - and he threw two beautiful TD passes to Keanan John, from 20 and 28 yards out.


South struggled to run the ball up the middle against a stingy North defense, but they continued to attack the middle, which set up Starr Thompson for some really nice runs outside.


North's defense didn't pitch a shutout, but the Mustangs weren't let down by the "D", which gave up just 202 yards total offense and also came up with a big goal line stand on fourth down in the fourth.


After watching South dominate the time of possession and control both sides of the ball in the first half, North came alive in the third, forcing South to back-to-back three and outs, and getting a long drive of their own down to the South 24. But North tried for - and just missed - a 41 yard FG by Jackson Wine. As it was, that was the closest the Mustangs came to scoring all night.


South moves to 2-1; North falls to 2-2 and suffers their first back-to-back losses since the end of the 2012 season.


North now leads the series, 6-5.
