â€œThey only tried it one time, and they never came back to it,â€ Washington coach Brad Beller said. â€œWe were a little shocked that they didn't.â€
Howard led Washington (9-3) with 116 yards and a touchdown, followed by Zimmer with 97 and two touchdowns. Junior running back Robert Rhynes, also the team's kicker, caught all three of Washington's completions.
Despite holding Crooked Oak to 31 total yards, Howard said the defense can be better.
â€œWe won 35-0 â€” yeah, it's a win, but we're not satisfied. We're going to keep climbing,â€ he said.
Beller said he's proud of how far his team has come this season.
â€œWe started off 1-3, and to finish and play like we're playing right now is just a big statement of how strong of character these kids have,â€ Beller said.
