When looking at the season for both teams this could be the turning point for Delta and the “where it went wrong” for Yorktown. After winning 58-28 on Friday, Delta found out one thing for sure. Zach Mills is pretty special. Mills dazzled with five rushing touchdowns on Friday en route to a historic day. It wasn’t just THAT Mills scored. It’s how he scored. Zach showed his foot speed not just in a straight line but from side to side. Time after time Mills was leaving defenders helpless in the open field. He scored three of five times from 25+ yards including a 69 yard run in the first quarter. It was incredible to watch. Ryley Pease also had an efficient day. He threw for and ran for a touchdown on the night. Mitchell Hahn caught the touchdown throw along with catching a two point conversion. All in all Delta found something on Friday night. 1) Give #1 (Mills) the ball often 2) lull the defense to sleep with the run then go over the top to 6’6 WR Mitchell Hahn. It worked to perfection for the Delta Eagles on Friday night. They are now 2-2 and snap a 3-game slide to the Yorktown in their rivalry.
On Yorktown’s side, they are searching right now. At one point in the 2nd quarter, they held a 20-6 lead. The offense was impressive along with the defense too. What happened in the second half? Well for one they ran into a great running back. However, it was on them too. There was a lack of energy. Once they were down, they looked defeated before the game was even over. Yorktown is 2-2 as well but they have many questions to answer. What is their identity going forward? That’s a question they’ll have to answer starting this Friday.
We have changed our schedule just slightly. This week we will be at Muncie Central as they host Arsenal Tech for an NCC battle. Then the following week will be Delta hosting New Castle. We look forward to Week 5!
