HUNDRED, W.Va. — The Hannan football team improved its overall record to .500 while also picking up its first shutout in two years following a 56-0 rout of host Hundred Saturday night in a Week 2 gridiron matchup in Wetzel County.

The visiting Wildcats (1-1) had little trouble in picking up their third consecutive victory over the Hornets (0-2), all of which have come in Week 2 over the past two-plus seasons. Hannan’s last shutout came in 2011 during a 22-0 decision over Hundred and the Wildcats also won last year at home by a 22-20 margin.

Hannan — which last won on the road during a 2011 Week 11 contest at Gilmer County (68-48) — accumulated 432 yards of total offense, all of which came on the ground. Six different players also scored for the Wildcats, including one on the defensive side of the ball.

Dakota Fannin started the scoring with a 63-yard run, then Isaac Tincher recovered a Hundred fumble in the endzone for a 14-0 edge. Matt Wallace scored on a five-yard run and converted the two-point try, allowing Hannan to claim a 22-0 edge after 12 minutes of play.

Charles Mayes had a 44-yard scamper to paydirt and Fannin added the two-point try for a 30-0 cushion, then Josh Sadler fell on an offensive fumble in the endzone for a 36-0 lead. Wallace added a successful two-point run, giving the Wildcats a 38-0 advantage at the half.

Mayes started the second half scoring with a 33-yard run that made it 44-0, then Zac Camp hit paydirt with a 14-yard run for a 50-0 lead to end the third quarter. Wallace added an 18-yard scamper in the finale to wrap up the 56-point triumph.

Mayes led the Wildcats with 153 yards rushing on nine attempts, followed by Fannin with 129 yards on seven carries. Wallace and Camp respectively added 69 and 66 yards on nine totes apiece. Paul White also had one carry for 15 yards.

Hannan will play Hundred again this year in the Week 11 season finale in Ashton. The Wildcats travel to Stewart this Friday to battle Federal Hocking in a Week 3 matchup at 7:30 p.m.
