Jimmies rally past Glenn
Charles Dreesen kicked a 31-yard field goal with just 5 seconds remaining before halftime, and the Falcons held Jimtown scoreless for three quarters, but the Jimmies scored twice in the fourth frame, and John Glenn fell 14-3 in its Northern State Conference opener at Jimtown Friday.
The Falcons managed only 94 net rushing yards and only 206 total offensive yards at the game. Josh Anderson led the Falcons in rushing with 84 yards in 20 carries, while Collin Howard had 23 yards in 14 rushes.
ROCHESTER â€” You know itâ€™s likely to be a good night when your defense can score touchdowns. Plymouthâ€™s Rockies got two scores from their defense, on the way to a 48-7 win over Rochester in their first road test of the new season.
Plymouth got a 37-yard interception return for six from Brock Smith in the third quarter, but the big rumble was a 20-yard strip and score from defensive tackle Damon Howe almost before the fans had settled into their chairs. Howe stripped the ball from Zebra running back Nate Bashamâ€™s arms and without breaking stride took it to the house.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille football head coach Brian Stultz and his staff spied something while watching Lake Station game film.
The Lancers converted that discovery into a 63-yard play action touchdown strike from quarterback Rod Bettcher to wide receiver Codee Kimbel on the night's first play from scrimmage, setting the stage for a not-as-close-as-the-score-looks 41-18 win over the visiting Eagles at Lancer Field Friday.
CULVER â€” With three fullbacks sidelined with injuries, Culver Community had to improvise.
When the Cavaliers couldn't seem to move the ball on the ground, sophomore quarterback Collin Stevens took to the air, connecting with receivers at a 10-for-19 rate with two touchdowns and a pick.
South Central had a chance to tie it up after an 8-yard touchdown plunge by Devin Wiltse with 2:10 remaining on the game clock, but the Satellites' two-point conversion gamble on a flea-flicker play failed, and the home team survived 21-20 at Culver Friday.
