BEVERLY, Ohio (WOUB) — Fort Frye (2-0) knew that they would be in for a handful when St. Henry (1-1) traveled over three hours via bus to Beverly to take on the Cadets. With both teams struggling with the intense heat and numerous players cramping up, Fort Frye hung on for a 16-12 victory.

St. Henry scored on the first drive of the game, but Owen Brown returned the ensuing kick-off to make it 7-6 Cadets. St. Henry would take a 12-7 lead before Fort Frye would regain the lead 13-12 after Elijah Johnson caught a touchdown pass from Ian Ellis. A field goal near the end of the first half would be the final score of the game.

Turnovers were key in the second half as St. Henry stuffed the Cadets on the goal-line, but Fort Frye caused a fumble at the two-yard line when St. Henry appeared poised to take the lead. An interception by Maeson Long, his second of the game, sealed the victory for the Cadets.

Fort Frye takes on nearby rival Waterford next week as they look to extend their regular season win streak.
