Indians feed Jake

Comment Print

The Oneida Indians found a way to grind out a big win at home on Friday as they defeated Midway, 17-7 to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Jake Lawson stepped up for the Indians with 20 carries for 126 yards and a touchdown. He also recorded eight carries on the night.
"Jake is such a fierce competitor," Oneida coach Tony Lambert said. "He likes pounding the rock. I challenged him at halftime and he answered. He's a fighter. He's for us and I love him."
The Indians took advantage of good field position after a bad snap by Midway and responded with a touchdown run by Evan Roberts. Alex Bowling added the point after for a 7-0 lead.
Midway tied the game before halftime, but Oneida turned to Bowling in the third quarter as he nailed a 27-yard field goal to give the Indians a 10-7 advantage.
Late in the third quarter Logan Marlow found Drew Crabtree in the corner of the inside for a nine-yard touchdown pass. The Indians took a 17-7 lead and managed to hold on for the win. Marlow completed eight of 19 passes for 72 yards. Crabtree caught three passes for 27 yards and a score.
Oneida's Nash Lay continued to be a valuable weapon in the kicking game as he dropped several punts inside the 10 yard line.
"Nash is a fantastic punter," Lambert said. "I've coached some good punters over the years and Nash is probably the top. He has a keen way of being able to punt the ball softly inside the 10 somewhere. That makes for a long field."
The Indians improved to 1-1 in district play and 3-2 overall. They will host Gatlinburg-Pittman on Friday.
