CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Sissonville High senior fullback Dominic Walker was happy to share his touches with a host of other Indians ball carriers against Tolsia at Joe Sawyers Field Friday night.
Unfortunately for the visiting Rebels, the touches Walker did get were more about quality than quantity as he tallied 136 total yards and three touchdowns to help propel the Indians to a 52-0 win.
Walker did much of his damage in the first half, totaling 63 rushing yards, including scoring runs of 25, 1 and 15 yards as the Indians jumped to a 26-0 halftime lead.
Walker also corralled a 41 yard reception from senior quarterback Nathan Miller that kept another scoring drive alive in the final minutes of the first half.
Sissonville improved to 3-0 with the win, while Tolsia slipped to 0-3.
"We're very pleased with how we're playing," Walker said. "We prepared hard this week and we came out expecting to win and we came out with a win."
"I got myself prepared and I couldn't have done without our line. I really wanted to win this one bad.
The Indians' win also avenged a disappointing 14-7 loss at Tolsia last season that helped keep Sissonville out of the Class AA playoffs.
"This feels great," said Sissonville third-year Coach Eddie Smolder. "Last year was a close game and a game that we feel like we should have won and we didn't.
"That loss cost us at the end of the season, so our kids prepared hard and our coaches coached their butts off. Right now we're executing well, but we've got a lot of things that we still need to work on. We're getting better each week."
Sissonville started the scoring early as Walker rumbled in from 19 yards out to cap the Indians' first drive of the game and just three minutes gone from the clock.
Walker moved the lead to 12-0 on a one yard plunge later in the first and increased the lead to 19-0 with his third score of the half.
Sissonville senior quarterback Nathan Miller ended the first half scoring with the first of three touchdown passes, this one to Josh Landis from four yards out.
