SPIRO — Hartshorne picked up their fourth win of the season Friday night when they traveled to Spiro, to take on the Bulldogs.

The Miners, who are undefeated in 2A-8 play, took a quarter to get their offense in to gear, but kicked it up after Ian Robichaud broke loose for a 32-yard touchdown run 30 seconds into the second quarter.

With a good PAT from kicker Will Ardese, Hartshorne went up 7-0 on the home team.

Quarterback Bryce Killingsworth trotted in a 10-yard T.D. run with 42 seconds remaining in the half, giving the Miners a 14-0 lead after another Ardese PAT.

In the second half, it became the Robichaud show, as the runningback found the end zone three more times on runs of 14, 17 and 43 yards.

A late minute score from the Bulldogs saved a shut-out for Spiro, as the Miners came back to Hartshorne with a 33-7 win.

Head coach Mike Reddick was impressed by his team’s focus during this game.

“We only had two penalties for two yards,” said Reddick. “And that has been something that we worked on in preparation for these games, cutting the penalties.

“We did a lot better job at focusing on not getting those penalties.

“I really have a lot of respect for our ball club and our coaches for being able say focus on the problem.”

Robichaud finished the contest with 22 touches for 207 yards and the four touchdowns.

Killingsworth had 107 yards on 14 carries, and fullback Dylan Voegele finished with 44 yards on 10 carries.

The Miners, who are sitting atop 2A-8 with the Panthers of Stigler, will host Valliant next week.

Feasibly one more win for the Miners will lock in a playoff spot for Hartshorne, but with Stigler looming in Week 8, the Blue and White will have a shot for the District title.
