Oneonta went on the road to Cherokee County and came away with a convincing 27-9 victory.

The Redskin defense held the Warriors to 196 yards and forced two interceptions. Beau Ragsdale was all over the field, racking up 19 tackles including three for loss. Luke Hodge played a good game as well, collecting 14 tackles including two behind the line of scrimmage. Brandon Howard had nine tackles and one interception. Jaden Kent also had an interception.

Offensively, Oneonta put up 318 total yards. Taveris Hill piloted the offense, completing 10 of 16 passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns. Hill, who has established himself as a true dual-threat quarterback, also had 105 yards rushing with two touchdowns. Jaden Kent hauled in two catches for 70 yards with a touchdown and Brandon Howard had 51 yards receiving with one touchdown.

The Redskins improve to 5-1 overall and hope to improve their 3-1 region record this Friday during their last regular season home game when they host Jacksonville (7-0).
