Nelsonville-York Runs Through Waverly
Last week, Nelsonville-York quarterback Garrett Maiden went off, throwing all over the field. This week, it was the running back’s turn. The fans at Boston Field saw Keegan Wilburn run all over Waverly, leading his team to a 38-13 win for the Buckeyes to continue their undefeated season.
Nelsonville-York’s (5-0) offensive line paved the way for its sophomore running back as Keegan Wilburn ran for 75 yards and scored a touchdown on the ground. He also added three receptions for 90 yards and two touchdowns through the air for the Buckeyes. Wilburn scored one of those touchdowns on a 13 yard run at the end of the first quarter to give Nelsonville-York an early 7-0 lead. Garrett Maiden went 7-10 with 175 yards, two touchdowns and one interception and he also ran for 37 yards on 8 carries.
Early on in the game, Waverly (4-1) seemed off its game, as turnovers and penalties halted many of their offensive drives.
Waverly running back Drew Kritzwiser had a few nice runs throughout the first quarter, but his fumble late in the first quarter allowed Nelsonville-York to have great field position near midfield. A potential punt return touchdown was also reversed thanks to a block in the back penalty midway through the first quarter. Waverly’s quarterback Clayton Howell also had a rough night. He went 12-24 with 132 yards, two total touchdowns and three interceptions.
After this week’s 38-13 win, the Buckeyes will look to continue their success next week when they go on the road to face the Meigs Marauders (3-2), while the Waverly Tigers will look to bounce back against the Valley Indians (2-3).
Good Quarterback Play Propels Trimble over Miller
The Trimble Tomcats suffered a tough loss at the hands of Waterford last week and they bounced back in a big way against the Miller Falcons, beating them 33-12.
The Trimble Tomcats (3-2) took this game thanks to key plays throughout the game. Toward the middle of the third quarter, quarterback Cameron Kittle threw a pass over the middle on fourth down and connected with Bryce Richards for the touchdown, giving Trimble a 20-6 lead. Max Hooper also had some nice runs throughout the ballgame to help run some clock for the Tomcats.
The Miller Falcons (3-2) had a good start, as they scored first and were up 6-0 in the first quarter. However, their defense couldn’t contain the trimble offense. Giving up 33 points isn’t great, but there were some nice plays by the defense to have some bright spots to look at for the rest of the season. An interception by Heath Bidwell at the beginning of the third quarter halted a possible touchdown drive from Trimble.
After this week’s 33-12 win, the Trimble Tomcats will look to continue their success next week when they take on the Wahama White Falcons (1-4). The Miller Falcons will look to not make it two losses in a row next week when they take on the Crestline Bulldogs (2-3).
