Hunter Patterson’s 297 yards, Mineard’s two picks lift Oak Glen
NEW MANCHESTER — Another memorable performance from Hunter Patterson lifted Oak Glen to a 35-12 victory over Keyser on Friday.
Patterson ran for 97 yards on nine carries, caught 11 passes for 200 yards and scored three times. Nick Chaney threw for 274 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Paxton Shuman carried the rock 22 times for 85 yards and two scores.
“I was happy with how we were able to compete on the line of scrimmage with what I believe to be a very physical team,” Oak Glen head coach Ted Arneault said. “We were able to hold them from explosive plays.”
Defensively, Brayden Mineard had two interceptions. Gage Patterson led the Golden Bears in tackles with 11. Dylan Conley had eight tackles, while Kyler O’Connor recorded seven. Hunter Patterson added five tackles.
“Brayden Mineard’s two interceptions helped swing the momentum in a pretty large way,” Arneault said.
Oak Glen (2-0) took a commanding 14-0 lead after the opening quarter. The first score came from a Chaney 13-yard pass to Hunter Patterson. Later on, Hunter Patterson ran for a 34-yard TD.
In the second frame, Shuman ran for a 2-yard score that gave Oak Glen a 21-0 advantage. Kicker Jeremy Adams converted on the PATs.
Just before halftime, Keyser picked off a Chaney pass and marched to Oak Glen’s end zone. With no time remaining, Zion Powell hauled in a 12-yard TD pass from Gavin Root. The 2-point attempt failed, making the score 21-6 at halftime.
“Some costly mistakes and undisciplined play kept the game from staying in our momentum, especially at the end of the first half,” Arneault said.
The Golden Bears nearly scored early in the third quarter but fumbled at Keyser’s 3-yard line. The Golden Tornado took advantage, as Drae Allen ran for an 11-yard touchdown. Oak Glen led, 21-12, after another 2-point conversion failed.
“In the third quarter, the kids did a great job finishing, especially running the ball,” Arneault said. “We will have to clean up a lot with the mistakes and self-inflicted penalties next week if we want to beat a pretty god John Marshall team.”
Oak Glen ended the third leading 28-12 after a Hunter Patterson 12-yard TD run. Shuman ran for a 1-yard score in the fourth to close the scoring. Adams went 5 for 5 in PATs and is 10 of 10 on the season.
The Golden Bears remain at home next Friday, welcoming John Marshall.
