For a lot of people across the state Oneonta was suppose to have a down year as they lost 3 players who totaled 53 touchdowns last season. But don't tell that to the players who finished region play last night 6-1 with a 31-14 victory over White Plains. The Redskins who were missing starting QB Brody Pinyan, RB David Hall, RB Fluff Bothwell all due to injures didn't miss a beat on offense and Sophomore QB Braden Moore and RB Collin Moon kept it rolling. Collin Moon had 118 yards rushing just at the half with 2 touchdowns to give the Skins a 14-7 lead. Braden Moore had a really effective night throwing and running the ball with 5 carries for 52 yards and 7/10 passing for 68 yards at the half. By games end Moore ended up with 13 carries 119 yards rushing and threw for 74 yards rushing. Collin Moon was top rusher with 123 yards on 21 carries and 2 touchdowns. Riley McGill in-relief of Collin Moon had 2 touchdowns on the night 9 carries for 77 yards.
The Oneonta defense came to play once again shutting down White Plains on offense multiple times. White Plains had 22 carries and only gaining 41 yards rushing. White Plains did have a little bit of success through the air gaining most of their yards that way. Beau Ragsdale snagged his first interception of the year in the 3rd quarter and would have had an fumble recovery taken back to the house for a TD if it weren't for a whistle blowing inadvertently. Ragsdale tallied 7 tackles for the night as well did Collin Moon and Cayden Kritner. Junior Linebacker Brodie Devaney had a strong performance filling in for David Hall as he had 5 tackles with 4 of them being solo.
The Redskins will host JB Pennington next week for Senior Night and the final regular season game. Redskins also found out that they will play host to Good Hope in the first round of the playoffs in 2 weeks. Oneonta and Good Hope squared off last year in the 3rd round of the playoffs with the Skins winning.
