The final touchdown came on a Tino-to-McCarthy pass that covered 23 yards with 3:14 left.
Ithaca never got the ball back as OHS gained two first downs on its final drive.
Defensively, the Yellowjackets held Ithaca to 5 rushing yards.
“I’ll tell you, Kirkland Dolan, our defensive lineman, is very quick,” Mushtare said. “He was swimming past their offensive lineman and causing havoc. Our defensive ends were boxing things in very well.”
Oneonta will host Windsor in a Division II game Friday night.
“We want to run the ball,” Mushtare said. “We want to continue moving the ball and we have eliminate penalties and fumbles. We lost three fumbles (Saturday) and they were all on drives where we were moving the ball.”
D/H 13, Walton 12
The second of Matt Mills’ touchdown runs came late in the fourth quarter and Brandon Macumber’s extra point provided the difference as host Deposit/Hancock won a Section Four Football Conference Division V game.
Mills scored from 6 yards on a keeper right before Macumber’s PAT.
Walton (3-2, 1-2) took a 12-6 lead when Blake Hitt found Jacob Wright on slant from the right side. Wright avoided a defender and went 45 yards for the go-ahead score. Like last week, when Walton missed on all five of its two-point conversions in a 30-28 victory over Delhi, the Warriors went 0-for-2 Saturday, including a missed PAT.
Mills finished with 104 rushing yards on nine attempts. He also scored on a 26-yard run in the second quarter. Deposit (4-1), which improved to 3-0 in Division V, will play a key division game at Unatego (4-1, 3-0) on Friday. The winner will guarantee itself a spot in the Section Four Class D playoffs.
Derek Mead tied the score at 6 for Walton in the third quarter on a 36-yard run around the right end. Mead had a team-high 50 rushing yards. Teammate Austin Kilmer contributed 47 yards on the ground.
