Sheridan showed the October hex and Indianapolis Tindley the door Friday night in a first round Class A Sectional 46 contest by rolling to a lopsided 34-6 victory.
Cameron Hovey more than doubled Tindley’s total offense, racking up 210 yards rushing for the Blackhawks. It was Hovey’s pair of 14-yard touchdown runs, plus a two-point conversion that launched Sheridan to a 14-0 lead after one quarter. Hovey’s third touchdown run, plus Silas DeVaney’s two-point conversion, upped the Blackhawks’ lead to 22-0 in the second quarter.
DeVaney threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Collin McNair before halftime. Gavin Reners’ 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter wrapped up the Blackhawks’ scoring.
Peyton Cross rushed for 51 yards and DeVaney gained 47 as part of a 360-yard rushing night for Sheridan. Tindley, which finishes 3-6, was held to 108 total yards – 11 net rushing yards.
Sheridan (5-4) advances to play undefeated and fifth-ranked Covenant Christian (10-0) in Friday’s semifinals. The Warriors routed host Edinburgh 75-7.
