Blazers' trail stops at Cougars

October 22, 2005|By JACK HILL III

CLEAR SPRING - The Catoctin Cougars showed how powerful their offense can be, rolling to a 61-14 win over the Clear Spring Blazers on Friday night in an MVAL Antietam football game.

"We were really concerned about how we were going to come back from last week's loss at Boonsboro and how our kids were going to react," Catoctin coach Doug Williams said. "I thought that we executed well. Everything was clicking tonight. We didn't have to punt."

Catoctin (5-2, 3-1) had many weapons to use against Clear Spring (1-6, 0-4). The biggest one was 6-foot-2, 190-pound sophomore quarterback D.J. Doyle, who completed 6 of 7 passes for 189 yards.

Doyle fired three touchdown passes, added a TD run and even contributed on defense with an interception.

"It was a team thing," Doyle said. "We all played together. We don't play for one person, we play for everybody. We really came out and stepped it up. It wasn't just me. The line gave me some time. ... If it weren't for the receivers catching the passes, there would be no touchdowns."


"D.J. Doyle is coming along nice and maturing nice," Williams said. "He had nice touch and a good game tonight."

Colten Eureka caught all three of Doyle's touchdown passes and finished with 122 receiving yards on four grabs for Catoctin. Theodore Kokoski had 113 rushing yards and two TDs on 11 carries. Kenneth Getzendanner had two touchdown runs and Nicholas Stiles added one TD run.

Clear Spring quarterback Tyler Braithwaite finished with 185 passing yards and two touchdowns.

"It was a dreary night, but it was still a good ballgame," Clear Spring coach John Wilson said. "The kids had a lot of fun tonight. They scored some points. We just have to try to get some injured people healthy. We had several players that were playing out of position. Catoctin played hard just like our guys did. It was a matter of them being more consistent. It is easy to be consistent when you don't have as many injuries."

Catoctin gained 511 yards of total offense.
