Philo jolts Warren

In the first game of this 2012 season, the Philo Electrics beat up on the Warren Warriors, winning by a final score of 33-12.

In one of the wackier starts you'll see in football, after the opening kickoff both Warren and Philo fumbled the ball on the first play of their first possession of the season.
Turnovers were a big story for the Warriors in the first half.  They fumbled the ball three times in the half, all of which were recovered by the Electrics.  This kept the Warriors from being able to really get any momentum going for their offense, holding them to just six first half points.
The other area of the game falling in the favor of the Electrics was the running game.  Running back Nathan Delozier scored twice in the first half for the Electrics and Philo quarterback Zak Sheridan was able to move the offense very successfully with his legs.  Delozier finished the game with three touchdowns and the Electrics had 271 total rushing yards, compared to just 98 for the Warriors.
In last year’s game there was a 4-1 turnover difference favoring the Warriors, who won that game.  This year it was reversed, as was the winner.
Dylan Leffingwell was 13-for-20 for 180 yards with one touchdown and one interception.  Jake Scott scored one of the two touchdowns for the Warriors and finished with 52 yards on 15 rushes.  Andrew Vincent was the leading receiver for Warren with six catches for 88 yards.
Warren will look to bounce back from this tough loss in a game against Marietta next week.  Philo plans to go for back-to-back wins with their game next Friday against Crooksville.
