Bilal Williamson ran for 162 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead the Dublin Coffman High School football team past host Olentangy Liberty 24-10 in the opener for both schools on Friday night.

The sophomore scored a 67-yard on his first varsity touch as he was substituting for senior Ezra Kim, who missed the game with a hand injury.

"It's a great win because it was a physical game tonight," Coffman coach Mark Crabtree said. "I don't think we anticipated running the ball as much as we did, but I'm glad we did. We have some things to work out. We made a couple of mistakes with the ball and didn't take care of it like I'd like to."

Senior quarterback Cole Stoudt completed 20 of 31 passes for 217 yards, a touchdown and an interception in his first game back after suffering a season-ending leg injury last season. He was crisp early, completing his first five passes.

"I thought I did pretty well today," Stoudt said. "I wouldn't say I was perfect. Nobody is. We have to go in tomorrow morning and watch the film and re-evaluate with the team and come back Monday ready for practice."

Coffman outgained Liberty 390-to-274 in total yards and took advantage of the Patriots' four turnovers.

Senior Kadell Nevel led Liberty with 85 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown, while senior quarterback Taylor Hudson completed 21 of 40 passes for 181 yards but with three interceptions.

"We have some things we have to work on," Liberty coach Steve Hale said. "I thought at times we were close, but you can't give up big plays like we did offensively and defensively. We have to be more disciplined and more crisp than we were tonight."

The Patriots put together a 22-play, 84-yard drive that resulted in a 28-yard field goal by Taylor Hudson, and Liberty also drove inside the Coffman 5-yard line but came away with no points after a penalty.

On the ensuing possession, Coffman drove 85 yards on seven plays and Stoudt connected with Connor Lucas for a 50-yard touchdown pass to make it 14-0.

After the teams exchanged fumbles, Hudson was intercepted by the Rocks' Ryan Borcherding at the Patriot 18 and Grant Coffman kicked a 24-yard field goal to extend the lead to 17-3. Liberty again drove deep into Coffman territory late in the first half, but was stopped on downs at the Coffman 10.

Williamson scored his second touchdown on a 5-yard run late in the third quarter, capping a Coffman drive that began when the Shamrocks' Stacy Woodford intercepted Hudson deep in Liberty territory.

The Patriots closed the scoring as Nevel scored on a 10-yard run late in the game.
