Hammer down early as Wellington bests Oberlin, 53-26

ELYRIA (Ely Stadium) – The writing was on the wall in Elyria as Oberlin hosted it’s final “home game” of the season versus Wellington. Less than two minutes into the game, the Dukes had a 14-0 lead, thanks in part to junior Jon Brasee’s 65-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. They’d go on to win, 53-26.

Welington’s Justin Yeager picked off two passes on the day, returning the first 44-yards for the second TD of the game. QB Jayden Skinner accounted for three scores, two passing and one on the ground.

Oberlin got its first score of the game on a 22-yard TD pass from Andre Yarber to Naz Roundtree. The two-point conversion made it a 22-8 game. Yarber would add two more touchdown passes to Isaac Thompson (39 yards) and Johnathan Frasier (29 yards).

Roundtree also returned an interception 48 yards for a score.

Luke McClellan finished with two touchdowns (18, 12 yards) for the Dukes.
