Oak Ridge too much for HVA

Scott Krebs is the spotter in the press box for Hardin Valley Academy football games and he spotted something that has become painfully obvious this season.

“We need to tell our players the start of the game is actually the start of the second half,” he said.

HVA held the opposing offense scoreless in the second half for the second consecutive game, but it wasn’t enough in a 28-0 District 3-AAA home loss to perennial state power Oak Ridge.

Inside linebacker Josh Krebs made his father proud with a fumble recovery and also tackle for a loss. “It seems like that’s always how it goes because we have trouble starting off the game,” Josh Krebs said. “We usually kick into high gear in the second half.”

Hardin Valley (1-7, 0-6 in 3-AAA) has lost seven in a row.

“I honestly don’t know what the problem is, but we’ve got to get at least 12 to 15 players to step us as leaders and get everyone else to elevate their level of play ...,” head coach Wes Jones said.

The bulk of the team’s offense was by running backs Dorian Eskridge (51 yards) and Ricardo Winston (48 yards).

Defensively, free safety Korrie Barnes had an interception. “I know that we lost, but overall we came together more as a unit ...,” he said. Zach Clevenger deflected a punt and joined Winston and Krebs in making sacks. Del Fercho broke up a fourth-down pass despite a cast on his left wrist. Ben Barnett made a nice tackle.
