VANDALIA – Ryan Martin rushed for 121 yards and four touchdowns, all in the second half, to lead Vandalia Butler to a 38-12 victory over Wilmington Friday at Memorial Field at Miami Valley Athletic Complex.

The Aviators (2-1) scored on three straight possessions in the fourth quarter – two of them by Martin and another by quarterback Mason Motter – after the Hurricane drew within 17-12 on the first play of the period on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady Evans to Cameron Coomer.

Martin’s first score in the fourth quarter onslaught came one play after Butler blocked a Wilmington punt and recovered it at the Hurricane 30.

Motter finished with 11 carries for 152 yards and the touchdown plus completed 7-of-15 passes for 84 yards.

The teams traded field goals in the first quarter, a 23-yarder on Wilmington’s first drive by Brady Henry and a 33-yarder at the end of the first quarter by Butler’s Andrew Boren.

It looked as if the Hurricane (1-2) would notch the game’s first touchdown early in the second quarter but turned the ball over on downs after three straight runs into the line and an incomplete pass.

Chris Custis stopped Motter in the end zone for a safety two plays later and a 5-3 Wilmington advantage it’d take in to the intermission.

Martin scored the first of his two third-quarter touchdowns on the Butler’s first drive of the second half to give the Aviators the lead for good.
