Minervaʼs 21-13 win over Marlington leaves 7-0 Lions sitting in first place in NBC Dukes with 122 yards. Minerva held a 305-228 advantage in total yards. Malvern 26, Strasburg 21 Malvern senior quarterback Shawn Ball scored on a four-yard run late in the fourth quarter to give the Hornets a 26-21 Inter-Valley Conference win at Strasburg last Friday night. “This win ranks up there among the great Malvern wins over the years,” said Head Coach Dave Tucci. “Coming from behind like we did was special and facing a very good opponent on the road and facing adversity along the way. Our kids kept battling for 48 minutes and got a well-deserved victory. Our staff couldn’t be prouder of our kids for how they kept coming back after Strasburg’s three big plays. What I liked most was how physical we played against a very physical team, out-rushing them 319-190 and total yards of 504253.” Tucci also thought the Hornet defense played well. “We might have played our best game defensively to date,” Tucci said. “The only negative was the 84-yard touchdown run, but other than that, we dominated the line

of scrimmage.” Ball was a one-man wrecking crew for the Hornets. He rushed 29 times for 257 yards, with 190 of those coming in the second half. He also scored on runs of 16 and 2 yards. Through the air, Ball connected on 11-of-21 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown. Senior Travis Tucci led Hornet receivers with five catches for 123 yards and a touchdown. For the Tigers, Ryan Froman scored on a 75-yard interception and Mitch Wilkinson scored on an 81-yard punt return. The win improved the Hornets to 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the IVC. The Hornets will be at Tuscarawas Central Catholic Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is slated for 1:30 p.m. Conotton Valley 20, Paden City 0 The Rockets won their second game of the season last Saturday afternoon by defeating visiting Paden City 20-0. Taylor Bowdish threw for one score and caught a 12-yard pass from Colton Cottis for another. Brandon Bailey was on the receiving end of a 25-yard scoring pass from Bowdish.

The Rockets led 7-0 at halftime. Manny Garza scored a late touchdown for the Rockets on a 25-yard run. Garaway 49, Sandy Valley 14 Garaway jumped out to an early lead and never looked back in rolling over visiting Sandy Valley 49-14 last Friday night in Inter-Valley Conference action.

Minerva 21, Marlington 13 Minerva took over sole position of first place in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference with their huge 21-13 win over visiting Marlington last Friday night. The win improved the Lions to 7-0 for the year. The game was close all the way. The Lions led 14-7 going into the final period, but Marlington scored to cut the Minerva lead to 14-13 after the Dukes had their extra point attempt blocked by the Lions. With the pressure on the Lions, their offense drove down field and scored on a 1-yard run by running back Zach Wade with 2:39 left in the game. The Dukes had one last chance. They moved deep into Minerva territory, but turned the ball over to the Lions. Minerva quarterback Eli Maurer connected on 14-of-22 passes for 193 yards. Maurer threw a pair of touchdown aerials.

By Bob Evans Sports Editor LOUISVILLE - It took a quarter before Louisville was able to impose its will over the visiting Warriors, but once they did it was all over. At the 9:37 mark of the second quarter the game was tied at 7-7, but the Leopards scored 36 unanswered points and rolled over the Warriors 43-7 on homecoming night at Louisville. The loss dropped the Warriors to 1-6 for the year and 0-4 in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference. Louisville improved to 4-3 overall and still has an outside chance of sharing the NBC championship, but would need to win out and get a lot of help. Minerva’s 21-13 win over Marlington gives the Lions a one game lead over the Leopards and a two game lead over Marlington. Going into the season Marlington and Louisville were favored to compete for the league championship. The Warriors played a strong quarter and a half Friday night. Senior quarterback Damon Anderson scored the Warriors’ only touchdown with 9:37 left in the second quarter and senior kicker Ben Knotts added the point after. Carrollton had two other opportunities slip away. On two different occasions Carrollton had the ball deep in Louisville territory but could not score. The Warriors turned the ball over on downs once and fumbled at another point. After those three possessions it was all Louisville. The Leopards’ Lucas Poyser scored on an 11-yard run with 7:00 left in the first half and Jeremy McQuilkin added the twopoint conversion for a 15-7 lead. Louisville got on the board again with 44-seconds before halftime on Poyser’s second touchdown run of the half from six-yards out. The Leopards would add three more TDs in the second half, while holding the Warriors scoreless. Junior Jake Peterson led the

Warriors on the ground with 100 yards on 16 carries. Peterson’s 31yard run set up the Warriors’ only touchdown. Anderson added 71 yards on 17 carries. Passing, Anderson and Luke McNutt combined to hit 1-of-6 passes for seven yards. Junior Storm Mohn had the Warriors’ only reception in the second quarter. The Leopards used 10 running backs in the game with Poyser leading the way with 14 carries for 55 yards. Quarterback Joey Duckworth completed 13-of-21 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns.

Golfers finish second at district tournament

Carrollton senior Tony Pozderac led the entire field of Division I golfers as he carded a tournament-low 76.

The Carrollton boys golf team extended their excellent season by placing second with a score of 318 at the Division I District Tournament last week at the Valley View Golf Course at Lancaster. “It was a good day of golf for the Warriors,” said Head Coach Gary Cogan. “Even in the rain and wind we played pretty well for the conditions and to have three scores in the 70’s was quite an accomplishment.” The Warriors, who finished their regular season with a 17-2 mark and 12-2 in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference, were to compete at the Division I regional Tuesday at the Apple Valley Golf Course at Mt. Vernon. The last time the Warriors qualified for the regional was 2008. Senior Tony Pozderac fired a tournament-low 76, while Zach Riggins shot the third lowest round of 78. Cale Pozderac was right there with a 79. Dan Tobin shot an 85 and Brady McClure a 93. Tri-Valley finished one stroke lower than the Warriors with a 317. Marietta was third with a 324.
