Randy Fluharty follows the block of Jeremy Conley against the Gilmer Titans last Friday. Fluharty netted 235 yards rushing in the 56-6 win.

 

Last year, Calhoun jumped out to a 37-point first quarter lead against Gilmer, and the Red Devils’ starting backfield ended up with only eight carries on the night.

In that contest, Gilmer fumbled nine times in the first half, leading to a 67-0 halftime deficit. It finished the 73-0 loss with zero pass completions    and four interceptions in 11 attempts.

This year’s Titan team gave CHS a much better battle.

Just before halftime, Gilmer only trailed 24-6, but quarterback Zach Moore’s 1-yard sneak and his ensuing extra point kick with one minute left gave the Red Devils a 31-6 lead.

Defensive back Aaron Yoak’s 62-yard interception return for a score put the game away on the opening play of the fourth quarter as CHS went in front, 44-6.

Randy Fluharty, who scored Calhoun’s first two touchdowns on runs of 11 and nine yards, could become the team’s sixth 1000-yard rusher in seven years.

The CHS junior carried 19 times for 235 yards. Eight of those carries resulted in half of the team’s 16 first downs.

Other Calhoun scores came from Jeremy Conley (two) and Sean Gungle, with reserve back Darrenger Fluharty scoring twice in the fourth quarter. Cory Metz added a two-point conver-sion.

Gilmer County, which came out passing, finished 12-of-31 for 124 yards. Two bad punt snaps helped the Calhoun defense limit its opponent to a minus-49 yards on the ground.

The Red Devil defense was led in tackles by Danny Slider with nine, and Randy Fluharty, Aaron Yoak and Caden Arnold with six each.

Calhoun will play Ritchie County at Ellenboro on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Game Note: It was an anniversary of sorts for CHS head coach Doyle Hupp. The former Red Devil running back opened his senior season in 1978 by scoring the first-ever touchdown at Glenville State College’s football stadium on Mineral Road. Gilmer County High School played the initial game at the brand new stadium that Friday night 30 years ago.
