Hayes Fills In Admirably As Ooltewah Clips Bradley, 28-26, In 5-AAA

Replaces Injured Pittman In Lineup, Rushes for 98 Yards And Touchdown

Saturday, October 5, 2013 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com
Playing without star running back Desmond Pittman, Ool;tewah’s Edward Hayes filled in admirably on Friday night, rushing for 98 yards and a touchdown as the Owls edged Bradley Central, 28-26, in a District 5-AAA high school football game.

With the win Ooltewah improved to 6-1 overall and 3-0 in district play. Bradley Central fell to 4-2 and 1-1.

Hayes’ 4-yard touchdown run gave Ooltewah a 28-19 lead with 9:31 left in the fourth quarter, capping a one-play mini-drive.

Bradley Central took a 19-14 lead earlier in the quarter when quarterback Brett Staandifer hit Dee Crisp with a 7-yard touchdown strike. The same combination hooked up in the first quarter on a 7-yard scoring toss and Standifer ran 2 yards for a second-quarter touchdown.

Ooltewah pulled ahead when Will Frisbee recovered a Bradley fumble in the end zone for a touchdown with 6:17 remaining in the third.

After Hyaes’ score, the Bears pulled within two points when Logan Fetzer snagged Standifer’s 2-yard pass for a touchdown and Clayton Steeles kicked the extra point with 1:54 left in the game.

Hayes finished with 98 yards on 12 carries while standing in for Pittman, who suffered a first-half knee injury in the previous week’s win over Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett. Hayes averaged 8.2 yards per carry.

The Owls had 152 yards rushing in the game.

Quarterback Brody Binder completed 18 of 24 passes for 186 yards, including an 11-yard scoring toss to Mike Williams. Binder also ran 14 yards for a touchdown, capping an 87-yard, nine-play drive in the second quarter.

The Owls had 338 yards of total offense. The Bears finished with 290 total yards with Standifer completing 20 of 36 attempts for 250 yards and three touchdowns. The transfer from Soddy-Daisy also had 34 of the Bears’ 40 rushing yards.

Crisp caught 10 passes for 79 yards and two scores.
