From start to finish on Monday night, the Oak Hill Golden Eagles thoroughly dominated the Peru Tigers, scoring a little over five minutes in and never looking back in a 14-0 romp.
Dalian Leach, Gabe Overmyer, and Mark Sevier each collected hat tricks, while Gavin Holz scored twice and Grant Elzinga, Luke Allgood-Hartman, and Jorge Gibson also found twine.
“We came out focused. I think that is what I was most impressed with,” Oak Hill Head Coach Joel Garverick said. “Sometimes you can look at a record or looks at the games they’ve played and be distracted. We were ready from the get-go. We came out and we executed. We played our game. I was excited about that.”
Hank VanBibber recorded three assists, while Overmyer, Leach, Holz, Weston Seybold, and Corey Griffin also collected helpers in the victory.
Oak Hill will face off against Missississinewa in the sectional semifinal. They came away with a 4-3 triumph over the Indians back on October 2.
“We are excited to play Mississinewa again,” Garverick said. “They play really hard. They are a rival of ours. We are excited to get an opportunity to play them again and play for a chance to advance to the sectional championship game. There are definitely some things we can fix and work on. If we play a cleaner game overall, I think we have a chance to be successful.”
