Senior back Jon Windell also reached paydirt for Corydon with TD runs of 38 and 67 yards. Windell rushed for 131 on just eight carries (average of 16.4 yards per attempt). The team’s leading rusher, junior Corey Thatcher, also had a touch of 33 yards in the second quarter.
Mitchell (1-4) was held to a measly 89 yards of offense.
The Panthers travel to Paoli this Friday night in an 8 o’clock start.
JV nips Charlestown
Corydon’s JV team used a strong defensive effort to slip past Charlestown, 14-10.
Corydon got on the board first when Alex Zimmerman hit David Terhune for a nine-yard score. Eric Fowler added the two-point conversion run.
The Panthers found the end zone again via the air attack as Zimmerman bombed one to David Bradstock.
After Charlestown got within 14-8, Corydon’s defense stuffed the Pirates four plays inside the five. Charlestown got a safety when Corydon ran to the back of the end zone to end the game.
Leading the defense was Terhune with 16 tackles, Ralph Weaver had 8 tackles and James Driscoll and Tyler Williams had six take-downs apiece.
