Fast start pushes Coshocton to win


CAMBRIDGE — The Coshocton Redskins (3-2) traveled to Cambridge Friday night and right away stole all momentum from the Bobcats.

They came out and drove 80 yards for a touchdown and by the end of the first quarter they were leading 21-0. That was the type of start coach Jim Woodrum said he had been preaching to his team.

That start carried Coshocton to its third straight win, as they defeated Cambridge 38-14.

“We played really well on both sides of the ball and special teams,” Woodrum said. “It was the whole deal tonight.”

In the second quarter, the Bobcats started putting a drive together scoring on a quarterback sneak with 6:19 to go in the half. But the Redskins came right back, as quarterback Andrew Mason ran eight yards for a touchdown before the end of the half.

With this win the Redskins, who started the season 0-2, have flipped the script completely, and halfway through the season are hitting their groove at the right time.

“It seems like we are getting better every week,” Woodrum said. “It really doesn’t matter what adversity you throw at this group, they overcome it and play well.”

They will host New Lexington next Friday at 7 p.m.
