Big pass plays lead to 41-point McLouth ‘W’
The McLouth High football offense didn’t attack through the air too often Friday night at Horton, but when it did the Chargers were usually left watching Bulldogs receivers breeze by them on their way to the end zone.
MHS remained undefeated with a 47-6 road victory on a night junior quarterback Marc Walbridge threw just six passes but racked up 209 yards and three touchdowns.
McLouth (6-0) already had a 13-0 advantage when Walbridge and the Bulldogs’ receiving corps began to put their mark on the team’s sixth straight win by 35 or more points.
Senior receiver Cameron Humerickhouse was the first to score a TD reception, getting his on a 61-yard play that put MHS up 19-0 in the second quarter.
Then senior receiver Cody McHenry got in on the action with an 86-yard touchdown pass from Walbridge.
Finally, in the fourth quarter, Walbridge hit sophomore Nick McAferty for a 67-yard score.
Walbridge went 4-for-6 through the air on the night and also ran for 66 yards and a touchdown on six carries.
McLouth senior running back Shawn Dailey, meanwhile, rushed for 112 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Bulldogs to 459 yards of total offense in yet another blowout win.
MHS, which has now outscored its opponents by a ludicrous margin of 290-31, opens district play at 7 p.m. Friday at home against Pleasant Ridge.
