RICHMOND — The New Palestine Dragons had a special victory Friday night at Richmond.

The special teams, that is.

The Dragons’ kicking game set the table in each half en route to a 42-6 victory over the Richmond Red Devils, giving third-ranked NP its 11th straight regular season win and a 2-0 record on the young season.

Senior Chaz Hill broke a fake punt 39 yards for a touchdown on the opening drive of the game, setting the stage for 28 points in the game’s first 13:05.

And, after Richmond opened the second half with a touchdown and a three-and-out and threatened to get back into the game, NP sophomore Adam Kincaid blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown that gave NP a 35-6 edge and put the game out of reach.
