No. 8 Blue Devils impose their will at Twin Lakes

Tipton opens up 34-0 lead in Hoosier Conference victory.

MONTICELLO — Tipton’s Class 2A No.8-ranked Blue Devils did pretty much whatever they wanted on their way to a 34-7 Hoosier Conference victory over Twin Lakes here Friday night.

Austin Hooker threw for 227 yards and two touchdowns and also added a rushing touchdown. As a team, Tipton totaled 233 yards rushing. Brody Dell and Jake Devendorf also had rushing touchdowns.

Devendorf finished with three TDs on the night. He caught TD passes of 35 and 40 yards in the first half and his six-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter capped off Tipton’s scoring.

Defensively, the Blue Devils allowed the Indians just 247 yards of offense on the night and 63 yards of that came on a TD run by backup freshman quarterback late in the game.

The Blue Devils got off to a great start scoring on their first two possessions. Tipton marched 79 yards in 10 plays on the first possession of the game. The Blue Devils had to overcome two holding penalties that totaled 24 yards.

Nate Hein had runs of 15 and 11 yards. Brody Dell added an 18-yard run. Hooker also went 3-for-3, completing passes of 13, five and 34 yards to Andy Overdorf, Nate Friend and Devendorf.

Devendorf’s catch gave Tipton a first-and-goal at the 3. Hein gained two yards. Hooker fumbled the ensuing snap but picked it up and bulled his way into the end zone for a 7-0 lead.

Tipton linebacker Codey Thomas came up with a big 12-yard sack of TL QB Cameron Bennington on a third-and-10 forcing a three-and-out. Following a 29-yard punt the Blue Devils were back in business at their own 49.

Five plays later they were back in the end zone. Devendorf accounted for all 51 yards, scoring on a 35-yard pass from Hooker. Tragesser’s PAT upped Tipton’s lead to 14-0 with 3:00 still remaining in the first quarter.
