The Rutland Voodoos brushed off the Fulton Maroons 26-14 in exhibition high school senior boys football action Saturday at Grahame Park.

Caden Doyle produced a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Maroons, going six yards in the first quarter and eight in the fourth. Jeff Hann booted both converts.

Fulton quarterback Ike Olson was 5-for-11 and 116 yards passing. He made five tackles and recorded one fumble recovery on defence.

“Ike Olson played a fantastic game at defensive end and quarterback,” said Fulton head coach Mike Scheller. “He made smart decisions with the ball as a QB and was on target with his throws. Defensively, he fought off double teams and was our best defensive player by far. Nate Banga provided good coverage as a corner and Mykl Drabiuk was solid as a linebacker in his first game.”

Banga bottled up five tackles, while Andrew Goldenthal had four. Kobe Romanovitch registered one pick.

Rutland led 12-7 at the break with the Maroons playing their best half of the season.

“Rutland just ground us down,” said Scheller. “They imposed their will on us on both sides of the ball. In the end, they were tougher than us, pushed us around and took the victory.

“Offensively, we ran the ball fairly well. Colton Annis had his best game of the year at fullback and ripped off some nice runs. O-line coaches Darryl Thomas, Ben Olson and Kevin Breiter have done a good job with the boys up front.”

Fulton visits the South Kam Titans Friday (5 p.m.) at Hillside Stadium in their opening Interior AA conference league game.

 

The VSS Panthers host the Westsyde Blue Wave Friday at 3:30 p.m.
