In their previous meeting, Reed delivered Oak Ridge a punishing 55 - 34 defeat. Reed got the short end of the stick this time around, however. Reed was close but not close enough as it fell 24 - 21 to Oak Ridge. The outcome was a definite jolt of excitement for Reed after its previous game, where the margin was anything but close.
Oak Ridge's offense came in ready to rumble, picking up 17 points in the first half. That put it at a 17 - 7 advantage. It was outscored 14 to seven in the second half but capitalized on its first-half cushion.
Oak Ridge can chalk up much of its success to the efforts of senior Marco Baldacchino, who threw for 248 yards. Austin Jarrard offered Oak Ridge additional support, laying down the law -- and the quarterback -- with five sacks. Jarrard picked up 13 tackles to boot.
The win bumped Oak Ridge's record up to 4-0. The defeat dropped Reed's record to 3-1.
Good luck to both teams in their upcoming games! Oak Ridge will face off against Woodcreek Friday at 7:30 PM. Meanwhile, Reed will battle it out against Bishop Manogue on Friday at 7:00 PM. Reed has the odds in its favor, so it won't want to drop the ball.
