Crushed. Giltner gives up 82 points at BDS in loss Friday night in Shickley

The No. 3-ranked (OWH) Giltner football team showed the ability to move the ball in the first half after trailing by as many as 14 points to tie the game at haltime 36-36. That seemed like a distant memory in the second half as the Hornets were shut out while the Eagles ran what seemed to be the same run play over, and over and over for huge chucks of yardage and touchdowns, ulimately scoring 46 second-half points on the way to a 82-36 rout. Giltner's offense struggled in the second half after being able to answer scoring drives by BDS in the first half. Quarterback and linebacker Ben Hinrichs tried to shoulder the load most of the third quarter, using his feet when he couldn't find a receiver down the field. Although that worked for Hinrichs in the first half, it also allowed the Eagle defense to land blow after blow to the quarterback, who threw two interceptions in the third quarter, including a pick-six, and had to be taken out of the game after injuring his right arm after he was sacked. The senior didn't return.
