Whitehall youth team tops Corinth, 24-6

T he Whitehall fifth and sixth grade football team earned its first win of the season on Saturday with a 24-6 victory at the Rec. Center over Corinth. It was the first win for the Railroaders against Corinth in four years.

Jimmer Rozell scored twice for Whitehall and Jacob Stoodley went over 100 yards on the day to lead the team.

On the first drive of the game Whitehall held on defense and took over on the Corinth 35 yard line. From there the Railroaders rode the strong line play of Brandon Bolster, Bryce Eddy, Max Schwab, Andrew Genier and Daniel Genier down the field for the score.

Jacob Stoodley carried the load getting the Railroaders down to the four-yard line where Jimmer Rozell punched it in for the first score.

On the second Railroader drive, Stoodley ran for 23 yards and set up Whitehall with a first and goal from the one yard line and Thomas Fish punched it in for a 12-0 lead.

After a Corinth punt set the Railroaders up inside their own 30, quarterback Jacob Moore took things into his own hands, running for 40 yards on 2 plays, the last a 20 yard sprint that included a couple of spin moves on his way to the end zone.

Whitehall was able to punch another score in just before the half on a 1 yard Rozell run to make it 24-0.

Whitehall gave up the lone Corinth score with 34 seconds left in the game.

The win put Whitehall’s record at 1-2 on the season.

For the game, Stoodley carried the ball 21 times for 117 yards. Rozell added 42 yards on 15 carries and 2 TDs and Moore went for 45 on eight carries and scored a touchdown.

Defensively, the railroaders dominated the game, led by the linebacker play of Bolster and Stoodley and the play of Eddy and Fish at defensive end. Rozell and Nick Paddock played great games at the safety position.

In its first game of the season Whitehall took on Warrensburg and came away with 26-6 loss against a bigger, stronger and faster team.

In the game Whitehall injuries caused the team to play the entire fourth quarter with only 11 players. Whitehall’s lone score came on a two yard Jimmer Rozell run that tied the game at the time at 6-6. But the undersized railroaders could not keep up with the lack of depth.

On Sept. 17th, Whitehall travelled to Lake George and came away with a sound 44-12 thrashing at the hands of the Warriors.

Lake George ran out to a 30-0 halftime lead and never looked back.

Once again Whitehall was hit by the injury bug, finishing with only 12 players. Whitehall got on the board in the second half with 2 touchdown runs by Jacob Stoodley who carried the ball 14 times for 63 yards and the two scores.

The Railroaders have a bye this week and play again on Oct. 8th against Glens Falls on the new turf field at Glens Falls High School.

Game time is currently slated for 10 a.m.
