The Wyoming Cowboys completed a perfect run through the Cincinnati Hills League with a convincing 41-6 road victory over the Indian Hill Braves in this week's FOX19 Friday Prep Rally matchup.
Wyoming (9-1, 7-0) raced out to a 14-0 lead in the game's opening seven minutes as quarterback Kyle Seyfried hooked up with his favorite target, wide receiver Jonathan Tighe, for a pair of touchdowns from 35 yards and 51 yards out. The duo would connect for a third first-half score with 4:04 left in the second quarter on a 13-yard touchdown pass play. After the extra point was blocked the Cowboys owned a 20-0 lead and that is how the teams would head to the locker room.
Junior Max Kadish had an 89 yard kick-off return for a touchdown for Wyoming to open the second half to put the game away as the Cowboys went up 27-0. Chris Dolle and Drew Perry each pulled in a second-half touchdown to round out the Wyoming's scoring.
Seyfried, who is in his third game back from a foot injury, showed flashes of brilliance, but also displayed quite a bit of a rust as he turned over the ball three times (a fumble and two interceptions) before halftime. The senior showed up for the game in a protective boot, suggesting that he is still not at 100 percent. Seyfried finished the night by completing 16 of 23 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns.
The defense was dominating for the Cowboys all night long. Junior linebacker Tommy Campbell had a big night, including two crushing sacks early in the game to set the tone. The unit held the Braves off the scoreboard until a late touchdown pass from Matt Thompson to Robert Stephens cost them a bid at a shutout.
Indian Hill (3-7, 3-4) dropped their fourth conference game of the season. The Braves had only lost three CHL games since 2003 prior to this season.
Wyoming has a firm grip on a playoff spot and is a good bet to open the postseason at home when action begins next week. The official playoff pairings will be released by the OHSAA on Sunday.
