LUCKEY — The third quarter was the undoing for Eastwood in its Division V regional matchup with Coldwater Saturday night.
The Eagles scored on a field goal late in the first half to pull within 21-16, but the defending state champion Cavaliers scored three touchdowns in the third quarter on the way to a 42-16 victory. Coldwater is 9-2 and Eastwood finished 8-3. PHOTO GALLERY
The Eagles were 3-2 at the halfway point of the regular season.
‘‘We had a good season. When we lost in week 5 to Genoa, our goal was to come back, win out and get ourselves in the state playoffs, and host,’’ Eastwood head coach Jerry Rutherford said. ‘‘We did those things — Our luck is we draw the defending state champions.’’
Coldwater took the second half kickoff and moved 80 yards on 11 plays, using 3:25 to score. The touchdown came on a 19-yard pass from Brody Hoying to Drew Otten.
Eastwood lost a fumble on the second play of the ensuing possession, and Coldwater needed only five plays to go 28 yards for the score, a 13-yard run from Hoying.
‘‘That was pretty much it,’’ Rutherford said. ‘‘We needed to stop them right there to start the half.’’
‘‘That was huge; that puts the dagger in it,’’ Coldwater head coach Chip Otten said about the Cavaliers’ touchdown after the Eastwood fumble.
The Cavaliers added an 82-yard drive, nine-play drive capped by a Mitch Schoenherr 2-yard run with 10 seconds left in the quarter.
Coldwater had 174 yards of total offense in the third quarter with 12 first downs. Eastwood managed only 22 total yards and one first down in the third quarter.
In the third quarter, Hoying was the catalyst for Coldwater with 13 carries for 83 yards and 3-of-5 passing for 64 yards.
‘‘Almost every day, we (the coaches) are all looking at each other and saying: ‘How can he do that?’ We call it being sick; he’s just sick. It’s not even fair,’’ coach Otten said about Hoying.
For the game, Hoying, a junior, rushed 25 times for 223 yards and four touchdowns. He also was 7-of-12 passing for one touchdown and one interception.
‘‘We haven’t seen anybody like him,’’ Rutherford said about Hoying. ‘‘He’d be a halfback in our offense, he’d be the tailback in the I.
‘‘He runs hard, and he plays hard,’’ Rutherford continued. ‘‘We tried to do different things to get guys on him, to hit him so he knows we’re there.’’
Eastwood took the opening kickoff and moved 65 yards in 14 plays using 6:36 for a touchdown. Devin Snowden scored on a 3-yard run, but the PAT kick failed.
Coldwater answered with three straight possessions resulting in touchdowns.
The Eagles pulled to within 21-13 on Snowden’s 3-yard run with 2:30 remaining in the first half.
Eastwood’s Jake Schmeltz then intercepted a Hoying pass, which resulted in a 24-yard field goal from Lucas McCullough with 46 seconds left in the first half.
However, Coldwater played better defensively in the second and shut down Eastwood’s Wing-T. The Eagles had 138 total yards in the first half, but only 57 in the second half.
‘‘We knew they were good, and it takes a while to get up to the speed of how all that happens,’’ coach Otten said about the Eagles’ offense. ‘‘They do a great job with all the misdirection.’’
