The Seymour football team once again fell behind early on Friday night and was forced to play catchup at Floyd Central.
The host Highlanders, behind the rushing of Gaige Klingsmith, rushed for more than 300 yards, scored seven touchdowns in the first half and rolled to an 84-43 win in Hoosier Hills Conference action.
The Owls, however, came up with their best offensive showing of the season and had two scoring plays of more than 60 yards.
“Nights like tonight are a big step for us,” Owls coach Josh Shattuck said. “Austin Sutton gives us the ability to spread things out. Zach Schlatterer played absolutely 100 percent the whole night. He made plays with players in his face. He had 12 catches for 206 yards and four touchdowns. He also caught two 2-point conversions.”
