This Game of the Week hailed from Village Park Stadium in Crooksville, OH where the Crooksville Ceramics (2-2) took on the Tri-Valley Scotties (4-0). The Scotties entered this game with a potent offense that was averaging 41.5 points per game, but eclipsed that mark with a convincing 63-0 win over Crooksville.
After a couple of stalled drives for both teams, Tri-Valley found their groove as they put the first points on the board with a quick, short yard scamper by Austin Jones midway through the first quarter. The touchdown was Jones’s first of the night but he didn’t stop there. Jones finished an impressive outing with 147 yards on 11 carries and four touchdowns. But he was not the only Scotties running back with four touchdowns. Daniel Scott showed up big as well posting up 159 yards on nine carries along with his four touchdowns.
The Scotties defense looked solid as well, stuffing the Ceramics to minimal yards throughout the entire game. They limited the passing game dramatically forcing Lake Channel and company to stick to screen passes that worked for minimal yards at best. The Tri-Valley defense quickly dampened the Ceramics ground game that was non-existent throughout the entire game.
Though the Ceramics have a tough loss on their hands they have some positives to take away from this game. Their punt formations had the Tri-Valley Scotties running all over the place trying to figure out whether or not the Ceramics were going to punt the ball or throw for a first down. The trickery had the Scotties guessing all game and added length to Crooksville’s drives. Even with a 49-0 lead at the half the fans of Crooksville still stuck it out and showed their support for their team.
The Tri-Valley Scotties are now 5-0 on the season and have a home game against a dangerous but struggling Morgan team, who is 1-4 on the season. The Crooksville Ceramics are now 2-3 on the season but are looking to turn it around next week when they play a tough Maysville team who is 4-1 and on a hot streak.
