FMQ: Jarion Tudman runs wild. Edmond North 36, Del City 21...
By Robert Przybylo
Like I said, I went back and forth on the Del City and Edmond North game all week. I should have went with my pick on Saturday and Monday.
Instead, I went with my Sunday and Tuesday thoughts and going with Del City. Wrong. Jarion Tudman came alive for the Huskies in a 36-21 victory Thursday to get North on the right track in district play.
North 36, Del City 21
North coach Jeremy Dombek said the key was the running game. Not even necessarily the success of the running but more the team not abandoning the plan in the second half.
In the second half, it was a healthy dose of Tudman one time after another. And you can stop him for 1, 2 yards at a time. But eventually, he’s going to break one. He broke two. One was a 62-yard TD in the third quarter. The other a 48-yard TD strike in the fourth quarter.
He rushed for 63 yards in the first half, but the Huskies never went away from him. He finished the night with 212 yards and three touchdowns.
In fact, he had almost every single carry for the team. Troy Davis had a few opportunities, but this was Tudman’s night to prove he had some toughness to go with that speed and elusiveness. The fumble in the first quarter had me thinking Dombek might look elsewhere. But patience prevailed.
Penalties eliminated any chance for the Eagles in the second half. They were going backwards too much in the second half because of holding calls and personal fouls.
However, no penalty was bigger than the offensive pass interference call on Marquis Walters that eliminated an 85-yard touchdown pass from Chazten Gonzales.
In what has quickly become a wide open and fun district, big win for North. The Eagles will get another chance next week to right their ship.
