SHERIDAN - Football fans thought they were watching a video game Friday night in Sheridan.

The Blackhawks were doing their best impression in the Sectional 44 opener as Sheridan (6-4) rolled to a 75-20 win over Tindley (4-6).

"We were getting our blocks every play," senior running back Austin Hoover said. "Every play we ran our linemen, and they got their blocks every play."

Sheridan scored early and often taking a 28-8 led after the first quarter. Blackhawks head coach Larry "Bud" Wright pulled the first string offense with just under four minutes in the first half.

"We got the reserves in and saw what they could do," Wright said. "The reserve offense, I thought they did a really great job."

The second string offense picked up where the starters left off, marching down the field for a score. Sheridan held a commanding 49-8 lead at half time. The starters returned to the field for one drive to open the second half. Hoover said that Wright had a job for the offense.

"He told us we had one more drive that second half and told us we needed to score," Hoover said.

Jacob Chesney led the Sheridan offense catching three touchdown passes from his brother Garrett Chesney in the first quarter. Jacob also ran for a touchdown.

Senior running back Austin Hoover rushed for 150 yards on 13 carries in the first half. He added 22 yards on his only drive of the second half. He rushed for three touchdowns in limited action.

Even in a 55-point victory, there were a few things for the Blackhawks to take away.

"The quarterback out outside too many times on us," Wright said. "He got a few passes on us. Other than that we did a pretty good job."

Sheridan advances to take on Clinton Central (4-5) at home Friday night. The Bulldogs had a bye for the first round of the sectional.

Other games in Sectional 44 included Tri-Central (9-1) advancing to the second round of the sectional with a forfeit win over Clinton Prairie (2-7). They will take on Shortridge (7-2), who defeated Indianapolis Deaf (7-3) 46-17 Friday night.
