Chillicothe Searching for First League Win at Warren

Both Chillicothe and Warren were involved in close matchups last week, but only Warren came out on top. The Warriors traveled to Logan and grabbed their first win against the Chieftains in 13 years. The Warriors took the Chieftains into double overtime, winning by a final score of 40-34; Josh Mays scored the game-winner on an eight-yard rush. Jeremy Hastie assumed the quarterback role with starter Dylan Leffingwell sidelined with an injury.

Chillicothe gave Gallia Academy all they could handle in a defensive battle, but lost 19-7. The Cavs opened up the playbook this week with the “Hook’n’Ladder” play, in which receiver Zach Johnson caught a pass then pitched it backwards to Jalen Jones, who then took it for 48-yard pick up. Johnson capped off  the drive with a 35-yard touchdown reception, for the Cavs only score of the night.

Warren is still uncertain if Leffingwell will return this week, but they feel comfortable with Hastie at the reigns. Look for more of a rushing attack with Hastie, and way more passing if Leffingwell gets the start. Expect the Cavs to keep up the trickery and air it out this week. Logan was able to put up 34 on the Warrior defense, two of their touchdowns coming through the air. Although at Warren, Ron Hinton’s boys have gotten tougher as the season’s progressed. After the tough 17-13 loss they suffered to Warren last season, the Cavs have revenge on their mind as they travel to Warren Warrior Stadium Friday night. Kick-off is set for 7:30.
