Week 6 Final: Wilmington 62, Batavia 14


News Journal



WILMINGTON — Thad Stuckey rushed for four touchdowns and Aiden Price passed for three more as Wilmington defeated Batavia 62-14 Friday at Alumni Field.

The win for the Hurricane, the third straight after three losses to start the season, came as alumni from near and far came back to WHS for Homecoming.

Stuckey finished with the four scores and 114 yards on just 10 attempts. Caydn Denniston was the leading ground gainer with 140 yards and a touchdown. Price was 4-for-5 passing for 121 yards and three touchdowns. Eddie Brooks caught two for 57 yards and a TD.

On defense, Darrick Perdue and Luke Achtermann led the charge as Wilmington held Batavia to -33 yards on the ground. Achtermann led the Hurricane with seven tackles while Perdue and Elijah Stewart had four tackles each. Though WHS did not score a defensive or special teams touchdown in this one, Bryson Schutte did have an interception and Wilmington forced four turnovers in all.

Stuckey had two TD runs in both the first and second quarters as the Hurricane blew out the Bulldogs early. Price followed Stuckey’s two scores to start the game with TD passes to Alexander Massie (9 yards) and Eddie Brooks (37 yards) to make it 27-7 with 9:12 to go in the second quarter.

Schutte’s interception set-up Denniston’s touchdown run at the 6:45 mark of the second. Stuckey scored two more TDs sandwiched around a Price to Zane Smith 55-yard touchdown as the Hurricane took a 55-7 lead into the lockerroom.

Playing under a running clock in the second half, Wilmington added a third quarter Price run for a touchdown to make it 62-7.

Jonathan Custis had extra point kicks on all but the first Hurricane touchdown.

The two teams struggled in the penalty department — Batavia with 11 for 110 yards and Wilmington with 9 for 85 yards.

Wilmington (3-3) is scheduled to play at Goshen Friday night. The Hurricane lost the first three games by a combined 29 points and have won the last three games by a combined 142 points.
