The Redskins marched to the Knights 29-yard line on their opening drive, but Midland's Matt West intercepted Hensley and returned the ball to the Knights' 27.
Hendricks took an inside handoff on the ensuing drive and ran 57 yards for the game's first touchdown.
It only took three plays for Hurricane to respond with its first score, a 39-yard touchdown pass from Hensley to Zach Pate.
Midland struck quickly after four plays when Coy Petitt found Seth Vickers for a 50-yard touchdown reception, increasing the lead to 13-6 after the point-after kick.
Hensley finished the next Hurricane possession with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Ford. Alex Wolford caught the 2-point conversion pass and the Redskins took a 14-13 advantage.
From that point, Midland dominated the scoreboard. On the ensuing drive, Hendricks caught a 26-yard pass to cap an 11-play scoring drive.
The Knights defense then stopped the Redskins to set up another scoring opportunity. Thomas struck on the drive's seventh play with a 35-yard touchdown rush and Midland led 27-14.
Following a fumble recovery with less than two minutes remaining in the first half, Midland's Thomas added another touchdown on a 1-yard rush.
In the first half, Midland accumulated 365 total yards, with 227 coming on the ground. Hurricane's Hensley completed 22 of 32 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half, as Midland's defense limited the Redskins to 18 rushing yards on 11 attempts.
Cabell Midland next hosts to Woodrow Wilson at 7:30 p.m. next Friday, while Hurricane enters its bye week before playing at George Washington Oct. 11.
