Short-handed Hennessey slowed by OCS

    OCS Saints vs. Hennessey Eagles

Hennessey was reduced to a one-dimensional offense Thursday night.

That didn’t bode well for the Eagles, who are still searching for their first win.

Oklahoma Christian School scored 31 first-quarter points and rolled to a 59-7 win over Hennessey in Edmond.

The Eagles are now 0-7 overall and 0-4 in District 2A-1.

They were without starting quarterback Cole Joyce, who was injured in the previous week’s loss to Luther.

That limited Hennessey’s passing game with backup Jay Jech stepping under center.

The junior attempted just seven passes and was picked off twice and his three completions netted minus-one yard.

That left the bulk of the offense on Brysn Hunt’s legs.

The senior got 43 carries and bored his way to 148 yards.

However, OCS was scoring in bunches.

The Saints got three touchdowns from Jaxon Canard as part of the first-quarter explosion.

Although Hennessey kept OCS out of the end zone in the second quarter, the Saints scored three more times in the third quarter.

Not until OCS led 52-0 did Hennessey find the end zone.

Hunt scored on a 14-yard run with 7:10 to play to cap an 11-play, 63-yard drive.

Canard finished the night with four TDs, three of them on the ground. Grant Redwine threw two touchdown passes and ran for another.

The Saints rushed for 294 yards.

Hennessey netted 110 yards on 50 overall attempts.

Hunt was picked off on his lone pass attempt of the night and the Eagles also lost a fumble, giving the Eagles four turnovers.

Hennessey travels to Frederick this Friday for a non-conference game.
