Alex Hake did most of his damage on the ground (146 yards on 25 carries), but
it was his 8-yard TD reception from QB Bryant Bednarek with 56 seconds
left that fueled the Eagles to an eventual 13-10 overtime victory over host DeSales in the Central Ohio McDonalds and JJHuddle Game of the Week.
CENTRAL OHIO MCDONALD’S AND JJHUDDLE GAME OF THE WEEK
NEW ALBANY 13, DESALES 10 (OT)
Player of the Game: Alex Hake, New Albany, RB
The Lowdown: Hake did most of his damage on the ground (146 yards on 25 carries), but it was his 8-yard TD reception from QB Bryant Bednarek with 56 seconds left that fueled the Eagles (3-0) to an eventual 13-10 overtime victory. Hake’s TD catch forced OT. In the extra stanza, New Albany kicker Jimmy Gammill booted a 23-yard field goal after a DeSales turnover for the win.
A 45-yard second quarter field goal by Gammill gave New Albany a 3-0 lead at half. DeSales (2-1) responded with a 1-yard TD run by Warren Ball and a 34-yard field goal from Anthony Ciammaichella to take a 10-3 lead late. It didn’t stand.
The victory was the Eagles second over the Stallions and first since a win in the D-III regional finals in 2006.
