PARKERSBURG - Seven different players scored touchdowns for Parkersburg Catholic Saturday night as the Crusaders overwhelmed visiting Calhoun County 63-0 at Stadium Field.
Senior Charles Schriner tallied three TDs while rolling up 174 yards rushing on 18 carries and his two younger brothers, Ryan and Neal, also notched touchdowns in the impressive win.
Catholic, now 2-2, ran roughshod over the Reds Devils, scoring on their first three possessions of the game as Calhoun went 3-and-out every time. PCHS's running game, paced by Charles Schriner and Mitch Davis (11 for 104 with a TD), shredded the Calhoun defense with 59 rushes for 444 yards.
Davis ran in from 21 yards out just 2:03 into the game, capping a quick five-play, 82-yard drive. Charles Schriner added a 2-yard run to paydirt at 5:19 of the first quarter, and Payton Sturm connected with Nick Roedersheimer on an 11-yard scoring strike at 11:14 of the second stanza.
Neal Schriner's fumble recovery on the ensuing kickoff at the Calhoun 38 set up Catholic's next TD, a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Sturm at 7:21 of the second to up the score to 28-0. And Charles Schriner's 1-yard run over the left side for a touchdown with 15.9 seconds left made it 35-0 at the half.
On the second play of the second half, Neal Schriner intercepted and took it back 31 yards for a TD.
