The Colerain Cardinals are a perennial playoff team with a storied tradition and the Walnut Hills Eagles were making their first-ever playoff appearance. The results were predictable as the Eagles made their way to Cardinals Stadium as Colerain cruised to a 60-6 victory.
After scoring just nine points in the opening quarter, Colerain (10-1) scored 21 second-quarter points to put the game away before the break as they enjoyed a 29-0 lead at the half.
The Cardinals outgained the Eagles in total yards with 458 to 191, including 314 yards on the ground. Detaun Smith led all rushers with 126 yards on 16 carries. Quarterback Dustin Smith completed 5-of-9 passes for 109 yards and three touchdowns.
Walnut Hills (8-3), who is just a few seasons removed from a 33-game losing streak, enjoyed the best season in school history and has plenty to build on. Senior running back Kenny Davis finished with just 56 yards on 23 carries in the loss. The Eagles’ lone score came late as Jake Desch connected with Carlitos Anderson on an 83-yard TD pass.
Colerain now gets a chance for revenge as they are set to face St. Xavier next Saturday night and to be determined site. The Bombers handed the Cardinals their only loss of the season when they beat them 17-14 in early September.
