Oberlin Takes Down Hiram in Record-Setting Fashion

More news about: Oberlin

Hiram, Ohio – The Oberlin College football team amassed a school-record 622 yards of total offense as they cruised to a 47-21 victory over the Hiram College Terriers on Saturday afternoon.

The Yeomen threw for 401 yards, which is the third-highest single-game total in school history, and also had a breakout performance on the ground with 221 yards rushing. The total of 622 yards best the previous record of 597 which was set in a 48-34 win over Heidelberg in 2006.

With the win the Yeomen improved to 2-1 overall – a mark they have not achieved since the 1989 season – and 1-1 in the NCAC.

In relief of Josh Mandel, senior Joey Zebelian was simply outstanding under center as he threw for 323 yards and four touchdowns, completing 22-of-28 passes along the way.

The Yeomen had two 100-yard receivers as tight end Danny Enright snagged seven balls for 127 yards and a score, while Cory Kidd caught six passes for 108 yards and a TD. On the ground it was Drew Mixter who led the way with 108 yards on 15 carriers and one touchdown.

After Hiram sent the opening kickoff out of bounds the Yeomen marched right down the field on their first drive, which resulted in six-yard TD run by Mandel.

Hiram would get back to even before the end of the first quarter, but in the second quarter it as all Yeomen as they exploded for 20 points in the period. Mixter capped off a 12-play, 91-yard drive with a two-yard TD-plunge at the 14:06 mark. OC would later orchestrate a 14-play, 96 yard drive that ended with a Zebelian to Ryan Harvey touchdown from seven yards out.

With the first half clock winding down and the Yeomen leading 20-7, C.J. Plyler came away with one of his two interceptions in the game and set the Yeomen up at midfield with 1:14 to go. This time the Yeomen needed only two plays to find paydirt as Zebelian hooked with Adam Niec for 21 yards on first down and then on the very next play he went deep to Kidd for a 30-yard scoring strike to make it 27-7 at the half.

In the third quarter the Yeomen would add a 32-yard Zach Richard field goal on their first possession. However, following a Hiram touchdown, the Yeomen would strike quickly once again as Zebelian connected with Enright for 50 yards to setup a first-goal. On the next play they would throw it to him again on an inside-screen that Enright caught at the five-yard line and turned up field and dove inside the pylon for the score to give OC a 37-15 bulge through three quarters.

In the fourth quarter the Yeomen would add another field goal and touchdown. The TD came courtesy of Ryan Harvey who caught a short pass and turned it into a 19-yard score.

Hiram would add a touchdown in the closing seconds, but it was too little to late for the Terriers.

David Kalgren led the Yeomen defense with seven tackles to go along with one interception and one pass break-up. Clay Eaton had two tackles for a loss.

Oberlin will look to build off this performance next week when the nationally ranked Wittenberg Tigers come to Savage Stadium for a 1 p.m. tilt.
