The Fightin’ Chicks came into Friday night’s game as heavy favorites against an inept Capitol Hill football team, and didn’t disappoint in a dominating victory over the Redskins.
The Chickasha High School football team improved to 3-2 this season and 1-1 in district play with a 58-6 home win over Capitol Hill.
On top of the fact that Capitol Hill couldn’t come close to stopping the Chickasha offense consistently, turnovers and penalties crippled the Redskins’ own scoring efforts.
Chickasha got the ball first to start the game, and moved the ball easily into Capitol Hill territory before the drive ended on a fumble from a botched snap.
Capitol Hill went three-and-out on its first drive, and punted to the Chicks, who got two big runs by Daniel Neff before Dalvin Madison scored the touchdown on a four-yard run with 7:59 left in the first quarter.
The second Chickasha touchdown came on a 57-yard swing pass from Cade Morris to Deshawn Young with 6:26 left in the first quarter.
The Fightin’ Chicks defense got involved in the scoring to start the second quarter, with T.J. Filer recovering a fumble on a Capitol Hill punt and scoring a touchdown to put Chickasha up 9-0.
Filer intercepted the Capitol Hill quarterback on the next drive, and Chickasha turned that into a scoring drive ending in a 17-yard touchdown reception by Shaq Oliver.
Rashad Garrett got an interception on the next drive, then Josh Latham scored on a five-yard touchdown run with 5:06 left in the first half to go up 33-0.
Capitol Hill finally scored late in the second quarter, but Chickasha responded with one more first-half touchdown by Neff to go up 39-6, which was the halftime score.
The Chickasha defense held Capitol Hill to 61 yards of total offense on 31 plays in the first half, while the Chicks’ offense put up 359 yards on 29 plays.
It was more of the same in the third quarter. Hunter Ford recovered a fumble on Capitol Hill’s first possession, and Chickasha scored on a 16-yard run by Neff after a 29-yard run by Latham.
Tresjon Davis had a 33-yard run followed by an 11-yard touchdown run on Chickasha’s next drive to go up 52-6.
Taran Womack had a 14-yard touchdown run to score Chickasha’s final touchdown at the end of the third quarter.
Morris threw 8-for-10 for 198 yards and two touchdowns. Neff ran seven times for 108 yards and two touchdowns. Davis, Latham and Womack each had one rushing touchdown.
Shaq Oliver was the leading receiver with four catches and 89 yards and one touchdown. Young had the one touchdown catch for 57 yards.
Both teams were heavily penalized in the game. Capitol Hill had 10 penalties for 167 yards, and Chickasha had 11 penalties for 116 yards.
The Fightin’ Chicks go on the road next week for a 7 p.m. game against district rival Lawton MacArthur on Friday.
