Woodland dominates Indians, Cross up next

WATERTOWN — Perhaps reports that Woodland cannot be an offensive or defensive power were a bit premature after all. The Hawks wiped away all memories of last week’s debacle against Wolcott with a dominating, 22-12 win in Watertown Friday night, led by another strong rushing attack, a shut-down secondary, and overpowering line play.

Through four games, a theme has emerged in the Woodland offense—give the ball to Jack DeBiase, and success will be on his heels. After carrying the ball only 17 times for 47 yards against the Eagles, head coach Tim Shea and offensive coordinator Tim Phipps decided to place the pigskin back in DeBiase’s arms against Watertown—and boy, were they rewarded. The junior tailback sprung for a season-high 194 yards on 29 carries with two touchdowns to power the Hawks back into the win column.
