KNOX â€” Josh Andersonâ€™s running style resembles something like the merger of a cheetah and bulldozer.
And with John Glennâ€™s football team looking a little lethargic Friday at Knox, it needed every bit of Andersonâ€™s speed-power combination.
The junior running back scored four touchdowns â€”Â one during each frame â€” rushed for a game-leading 237 yards on 25 carries, and caught a two-point conversion pass for good measure to apply a little shine on an otherwise subdued 29-0 Northern State Conference win at Community Field.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was a good end to a bad week.
â€śItâ€™s a great end to a bad week,â€ť said Plymouth football head coach John Barron on the field after his teamâ€™s 34-14 win over Warsaw on Friday. â€śMy dad was watching this one. It was awesome.â€ť
Barron knew that he wouldnâ€™t be able to be on the sideline for this weekâ€™s game, owing to his ejection a week ago at Rochester. Barron also had to deal with the death of his father early in the week taking him away from his team to be with his family.
BOURBON â€” After a pair of close contests last year, both Tritonâ€™s and Culverâ€™s head coaches knew Friday nightâ€™s Northern State Conference kickoff at Triton was going to be a battle.
The game delivered as billed, but Michael Salary returned to power the Cavaliersâ€™ running game, Culverâ€™s defense delivered in the clutch, and in the end the visitors took a closer-than-the-final-score 21-13 victory over the host Trojans.
