The Oxford High School Wolverines football team knocked off Seymour 27-6 Friday night thanks to tough defense and an explosive offense.
Quarterback Kyle Chudoba threw three touchdown passes and ran for one (a one-yard QB sneak) to lead the Wolverines (4-2). He completed five of 12 passes for 198 yards and no interceptions.
Chris VanKamerik caught two of the three TDs. The first was a 63-yard catch-and-run; the second was a 37-yard pass that VanKamerik dove to catch in the end zone.
Marcus Esteves scored on a 48-yard pass from Chudoba. Esteves also had two carries for 10 yards.
Seymour (3-3) scored its lone touchdown on an 82-yard kickoff return by Christian Thurmond.
For Oxford, VanKamerik caught two passes for 100 yards. He also carried the ball once for three yards.
Owen Diaz caught one pass for 18 yards, while Steve Persson had one reception for 32 yards. Persson also was the workhorse running back on the night, carrying the ball 20 times for 107 yards.
Fullback Jeff Haney had a 60-yard touchdown called back because of a penalty. He carried the ball twice for two yards and played a great game on defense in his linebacker position. As a team, the Wolverines held Seymour to 94 total rushing yards.
The defense might have been led by Haney, its senior captain and linebacker, but Wolverines fans should take some credit for their amazing show of team spirit. That spirit was captured on video by SportzEdge.com, an affiliate of WTNH News 8.
