Owensboro limited Grayson County to 113 yards of total offense as the Red Devils remained undefeated with a 41-0 high school football victory over host Grayson County on Friday night in Leitchfield.
The victory lifts OHS to 7-0 overall and 4-0 within the district.
“Our defense led the way in this one,” Red Devils head coach Jay Fallin said. “Also, our special teams play was very sharp.
“We did what we needed to do tonight.”
Owensboro got the only points it would need on a 46-yard touchdown run by Gavin Wimsatt, taking an early 6-0 lead.
The Red Devils increased their advantage to 14-0 soon after when Wimsatt tossed a 12-yard scoring pass to Ben Flaherty and Treyvon Tinsley followed with a 2-point conversion run.
OHS blew the game open in the second period with two more scores — a 12-yard TD pass from Wimsatt to Kindrick Williams, and a 49-yard interception return by Jeremiah Goodwin that made it 28-0.
In the third period, Austin Gough scored on a 4-yard run, and in the fourth quarter Taquan Robinson found paydirt from two yards out.
Wimsatt was solid throughout, finishing 15-of-26 through the air for 228 yards and two TDs, while running for 58 yards on seven carries and a score.
Owensboro wraps up regular season play next Friday night when it hosts Breckinridge County.
