YARMOUTH – A power outage delayed the start of the game a half-hour, but there was no shortage of electricity on the Yarmouth football team when the game did begin Friday night.

Rolling to their 14th consecutive victory, the defending Class C champion ran away with a 51-7 victory against Oak Hill in a Western Class C game.

“We just didn’t come to play for some reason,” Oak Hill Coach Dave Wing said.

“I don’t know what it was but we were flat. I thought we were equal to the task but we sure weren’t tonight.”

The Clippers took advantage of several mistakes made by the Raiders to build a 39-0 lead in the first half.

Anders Overhaug, who ran for three touchdowns in Yarmouth’s season-opening 51-0 victory against Old Orchard Beach last week, added three rushing touchdowns in the first quarter.

Less than five minutes into the game, Overhaug scored on a 4-yard run four plays after defensive end Carter Dorsett blocked a punt at the Oak Hill 25.

With five minutes left in the first quarter, Overhaug, who rushed for 134 yards on just five carries in the first half, went 54 yards for a touchdown on the first play following an Oak Hill punt.

With 15 seconds left in the period, he ran 71 yards for a touchdown three plays after another punt to make it 19-0.

The Clippers, who beat the Raiders last season en route to their first state championship, moved into a 25-0 lead when Dorsett intercepted a pass and returned it 28 yards for a touchdown in the first minute of the second quarter.

With 7:40 left in the half, quarterback Brady Neugahr made it 32-0 when he swept left 24 yards for a touchdown four plays after linebacker Nate Shields-Aube recovered a fumble at the Oak Hill 38.

“You can’t make any mistakes against them,” Wing said. “They’ve got good skill people and they make you pay.”

With four minutes left in the half, Neugahr threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Shields-Aube.

Matt Woodbury made it 45-0 when he swept right 52 yards for a touchdown with 21 seconds left in the third quarter.

Alex Mace put the Raiders on the scoreboard when he plunged from the 1 with 6:23 left in the game.

With 5:29 remaining, Sam Keegan swept left 56 yards to cap the scoring for the Clippers.
