Gavin Wimsatt threw three touchdown passes to Treyvon Tinlsey and Cameron Thompson rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown as visiting Owensboro defeated Graves County 27-8 in a Class 5-A district football battle on Friday night in Mayfield.
The Red Devils (7-1, 4-0 district) were in a dogfight throughout the first half, taking only a 13-8 lead to the locker room at halftime.
"This is always a very tough place to play and Graves County is a gritty team," OHS head coach Jay Fallin said. "The guys had a really great team effort, and Treyvon Tinlsey made a couple of very nice touchdown receptions that stretched it out a little for us in the second half.
"Cameron Thompson ran the ball well and, once again, we got another great defensive effort."
The Red Devils, ranked No. 6 in Class 5-A, finished with 347 yards of total offense, compared to 326 for the Eagles, who slipped to 4-4 overall and 3-1 within the district.
