After the rain and a 30 minute lightning delay, Creek Wood was finally able to get their first win of the season by beating Waverly Central 30 to 7.
“It feels good to have the monkey of the back,” Head Coach Chuck Daniel said after the end of the game. Creek Wood was able to put together their most impressive outing of the season both offensively and defensively.
Waverly was the first to score in the first quarter thanks to a 2 yard touchdown run by quarterback Hunter Hamm. But, it was all Creek Wood after that. Quarterback Ian Spence had 2 rushing touchdowns, and he also kicked a 30 yard field goal before he had to leave the game in the fourth quarter due to cramps. Justin Tummons had a 4 yard rushing touchdown along with a 27 yard interception returned for a touchdown.
Creek Wood had to sit through a 30 minute lightning delay with 8 minutes left to go in the 4th quarter. After that happened, Creek Wood was able to run the clock out and get their first win of the season.
Creek Wood will host Montgomery Central on Friday. Montgomery Central’s Head Coach Jeff Tomlinson was Creek Wood’s offensive coordinator last year.
Quarterback Ian Spence had to leave the game because of a leg cramp in the 4thquarter. Coach Daniel said he would be fine for the next game.
