For most football teams, the weather of tonight’s game was not ideal.

But for Colerain and Lakota East, it was perfect.

Two teams who love to run the ball put their running games on display in the heavy rain as the Cardinals prevailed, 35-7 at the Hawks’ Nest on Friday.

Early on, Colerain looked like anything but the top team in the state as senior quarterback Kelvin Cook fumbled twice in the opening possessions.

Lakota East would recover the second fumble, setting up field position inside the Colerain 20, but the Thunderhawks couldn’t capitalize.

Lakota East quarterback Eric Eichler fumbled on the 10 yard line and Colerain’s speedy Jalen Christian recovered it and returned it 90 yards for a touchdown.

Lakota East tied it on a 3-yard touchdown run by David Chenault after senior running back Bobby Brown kept the drive alive with a reception on a fourth-down conversion.

Jordan Asberry took an option pitch 50 yards to put the Cardinals ahead 14-7, and a few possessions later, Cook ran in a 40-yard touchdown to give Colerain a 21-7 halftime lead.

Colerain dominated the second half with its intense running game. The Cardinals tacked on two more touchdowns from senior running back T.J. Dula to cap the scoring.
