Hoosier Heartland Conference foe Clinton Prairie was just what the doctor ordered for the 14th-ranked Sheridan Blackhawks.
After falling to ranked Tri-Central 21-0 on Sept. 4, the Hawks have had plenty of time to sit and think -- and get angry.
And even though the game didn't start so well, Cameron Hovey’s 55-yard touchdown run gave the visiting Blackhawks the lead just before halftime and Sheridan never looked back in a 34-7 win.
That long run was the first of three consecutive touchdowns for Hovey, who tacked on scores of 32 and 39 yards on his way to a 244-yard night.
Big plays were the rule in this Hoosier Heartland Conference game. Jalen Herron’s 100-yard interception return opened the scoring. Clinton Prairie’s Kade Osborn tied the game in the second quarter with a 71-yard touchdown run and an extra-point kick.
Herron closed out the scoring with a 20-yard touchdown run for Sheridan.
The victory moved SHS to 3-1 overall and 1-1 in HHC play. Next up is a home conference game against Taylor on Friday night at 7. The Titans are 1-4 overall and 0-3 in conference.
