(October 24th, 2014)-EDON: Hosting Toledo Area Athletic Conference opponent Ottawa Hills, The Bombers of Edon battled all night to come away with a 33-30 victory on Senior Night.
It was on the arm of Kaden Sapp that the Bombers relied. The senior quarterback went 23 of 42 passing, gaining 382 yards and 4 touchdowns through the air. Landon Bloir led all Edon receivers with 10 receptions for 223 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown as well.
Edon’s rush defense again struggled to stop the run. They allowed Ottawa Hills leading rusher, Boesel to run for 282 yards and 3 touchdowns. They had much more success shutting down the Ottawa passing game, giving up just 132 yards and 1 touchdown.
The Bombers were crowding the line of scrimmage for most of the evening, moving their linebackers close and bringing up a safety in run support. The Ottawa Hills offense just couldn’t take advantage, however, and had to continue running the ball anyway.
Due to their problems handling the Ottawa Hills running game, Edon allowed them to gain 21 first downs. However, that Bomber offense procured 18 first downs of their own.
Two vital parts of the Bomber offensive effort were Cameron Castillo and Preston Klingler. Each player caught 2 touchdown passes in the game. Castillo started the Edon scoring by catching a 40 yard touchdown pass from Sapp. He later added a 4 yard scoring reception. Klingler had touchdown catches of 12 and 41 yards.
Edon won the turnover battle against Ottawa Hills as well. The Bombers turned the ball over twice, while they were able to force 3 turnovers upon the Ottawa offense. They did have more penalties, however, committing 7 infractions for 70 yards, compared to Ottawa Hills’ 4 fouls for 38 yards.
Edon will finish their season on Friday, when they travel to Toledo Christian.
