The unbeaten Oaks, who lead the Great 8 with a 3-0 record (5-0 overall), racked up an impressive 512 yards on offense, fueled by a strong aerial attack. The Resorters dropped to 0-2 in the league (0-4 overall).

Oakfield senior quarterback Eric Jacob, displaying a strong, accurate arm, passed for 321 yards and five touchdowns. His top receiver was senior wide receiver Brandon Williams who caught seven passes for 195 yards and three TDs.

Williams also had a 76-yard kickoff return for a TD which gave Oakfield the lead for good, 14-6, with 5:35 left in the first quarter. The TD came after Elkhart had cut the Oaks’ lead to 7-6 on freshman running back Jesse Guerrero’s 51-yard TD scamper around the left end, helped by some key blocks.

We had a rough game,” said Resorter head coach Josh Bardon.

“They played a complete game on offense, defense and special teams – something we are striving to do. Our guys never quit and played tough to the end.”

The Resorters’ other TD came on a 76-yard pass from quarterback Cody Rebedew to wide receiver Hunter Radloff in the third period.
