CONDON, Ore. - Touchet opened its season with a bang on the road against Condon, rolling off 40 points before letting its opponent get on the board in a 40-14 non-league win.
The Indians jumped out to an early lead when Jake Hodnefield hit Eric Hines for an eight-yard touchdown pass on the team's first drive of the night.
"We got off to a good start," said second-year head coach Gary Dorman. "We came out and established our game plan, which is always a big part of the game."
Touchet stretched its lead to 20 by halftime with a Hodnefield 37-yard run to the endzone and a seven-yard touchdown pass.
The Indians' dominance continued into the third when Matt Kates took over under center and hit Hodnefield for a pair of touchdown passes.
"We changed things up a little bit in the second half, which is nice to be able to do," Dorman said. "We have a lot of juniors and sophomores on this team so we're still trying to figure out where everyone fits, and even if the guys don't want to admit it, I'm sure there were some pre-game jitters today."
Touchet notched its final score when Hines hauled in a 33-yard pass from Kates before Condon scored a pair of late touchowns.
Up next for the Indians is another non-league game versus Ione on Friday.
"I'm really pleased with our new kids," Dorman said. "Our offensive line did a really solid job, which is a big plus because next week we're going to be playing a bigger team. We're going to get geared up to play one of the bigger teams we're going to see this year."
