Midway jumps on Richlands, 33-13

Posted

SPIVEY'S CORNER — The Midway defense forced three turnovers en route to a dominating 33-13 victory over Richlands at home Friday.

Midway (4-1) defensive back Casey Culbreth had two first-half interceptions to limit the visitors' momentum in the ground game.  His second pick was just moments before halftime to help the Raiders maintain a 20-6 halftime lead. 

The disruptive defense also forced a Wildcats fumble, which was recovered by Josh Lupo. 

Wyatt Holland threw for a game-high 298 yards and five touchdowns. He connected with Kendrick Tyndall for a 62-yard score midway through the second quarter, then found Jamir McCrae for his first of two touchdown receptions to make it 20-6. 

Culbreth and Nate Smith accounted for the other TD grabs, both coming in the second half to extend the margin to 33-6. 

Richlands (0-3) running backs Owen Simco and Brennan Baker each had a score on the ground, with Simco's coming in the game's waning seconds.

Midway returns to conference play next week at cross-county rival Clinton on Friday, Oct. 1.
