Tipton dominates Delphi in shutout victory

Blue Devils close regular season 6-3.

DELPHI — The Tipton Blue Devils did something Friday night, they hadn’t done in four years. They recorded a shutout.

Class 2A No.8-ranked Tipton (6-3) closed out the regular season with a 38-0 Hoosier Conference romp over Delphi. Ironically, the Blue Devils’ last shutout came four years ago at Delphi, 49-0.

“Shutout’s great,” Tipton coach Aaron Tolle said. “It’s the first one we’ve had in four years, I think but again we challenged our kids at halftime. We made too many mistakes in the first half. We had three turnovers; two of them were in the red zone. You can’t do those things over the next three weeks or there won’t be a next three weeks, so we’ve got to get those things cleaned up. Hopefully, we got them out of the way.”

Those three turnovers were the only thing that prevented the Blue Devils from scoring practically every time they took possession of the ball. All three turnovers — two fumbles and an interception — came in the first half. Despite those mistakes, the Devils owned a 17-0 lead.

Tipton utilized a balanced attack. Senior Nate Hein carried the ball 19 times for 152 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a 20-yard TD pass from Austin Hooker. Hooker was 10-of-23 for 115 yards and a TD. He also rushed 11 times for 74 yards and 2 TDs.

Brody Dell finished with eight carries for 47 yards and a TD. Jake Devendorf caught six passes for 52 yards and had a six-yard run. Nate Friend had three receptions for 43 yards.

Tipton got the ball first and starting at its own 35 marched down to the Delphi 14 before Hooker bobbled the ball on a handoff attempt to Hein and Delphi’s Andrew Rowland recovered at the 15. Two plays later, Tipton stripped Clint Rude of the football and senior tackle Luke Shively picked the fumble up and returned it seven yards to the Oracle 10.
