TANEYTOWN — Fort Hill scored on every possession and played near mistake-free football in handling Silver Oak Academy, 57-0, Friday night at Tanneytown Memorial Park to remain undefeated in six games.

After the Sentinels stuffed Silver Oak on its first possession, they took over at the Rams’ 25-yard line and needed just four plays before Tyreke Powell scored from four yards out on a sweep right. Danny King’s kick made it 7-0.

After another three-and-out, Braeden Askins’ punt return set up the Sentinels at the Rams’ 13, before quarterback Blake Beal immediately found Jayden Haines for the 13-yard TD pass, and King’s kick made it 14-0.

Silver Oak gained a first down on its next possession but was then forced to punt, with Fort Hill taking over at the Rams’ 35. On the first play of the possession after a Rams penalty, Askins took the sweep at the 30 and immediately entered the Silver Oak secondary before finding the end zone for the Sentinels’ third touchdown.

The Sentinels then recovered a Silver Oak fumble at the Rams’ 20, and four plays later, Carter Swan’s TD run put Fort Hill on the board again, with King’s kick making it 28-0.

On Silver Oak’s next play, Swan intercepted the first-down pass to give Fort Hill possession at the Rams’ 25. After an unsportsmanlike call on the Rams, Beal rolled right, looked away defenders and found Anthony Smith on the post pattern for the 12-yard TD pass with King’s kick making it 35-0.

Fort Hill next took possession at its 35, and with Walker Appel at quarterback, put together a seven-play scoring drive. Haines and Colby Santmyire had the big gains, with Santmyire putting the Sentinels inside the Silver Oak 10, with Nick Lamb’s nine-yard TD run, and Trey Harper’s kick making it 42-0 at the half.

Fort Hill opened the second half with a seven-play scoring drive, with Santmyire taking the pitch left at the Silver Oak 31 and going in for the touchdown. The kick failed and the Sentinels led, 48-0.

Fort Hill was then awarded with a safety on the ensuing kickoff and the Sentinels regained possession.

Darius Younger and Carson Snyder both peeled off big gains on the next possession to help get the ball inside the 10. From the four, quarterback Daniel Stuby ran the bootleg left to get into the end zone for the next touchdown. Riley Upole’s kick made it 57-0 for the eventual final score.

Fort Hill (6-0) will host Forest Park on Saturday, 1 p.m., at Greenway Avenue Stadium.
