Here’s a look at football games in the SBAAC American and National divisions.
LAST WEEK’S GAMES
Bethel-Tate 41 Batavia 0: Alex Manz had another big game – 11-15 passing for 115 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 96 yards rushing and two more scores. Logan Owens was the big dog on offense with 190 yards rushing and a touchdown on 24 attempts. Coming in to the game, he was 34-142 rushing in three games.
Summit Country Day 27 Clermont NE 24: Clermont Northeastern became the first team to score on Summit Country Day this season but the Rockets fell just short.
Goshen 50 Norwood 7: According to the SBAAC website, Goshen did what Goshen does – run the ball. The Warriors averaged 13 yards a rush on 24 attempts. Hunter Slusher had 86 yards and three TDs on just six carries. He also caught a touchdown pass. Trey Mowry had a fumble recovery for a touchdown for Goshen
Talawanda 29 New Richmond 6: Three turnovers and Talawanda’s special teams play doomed the Lions in this one. The Braves had 291 yards while the Lions gained 261, so the offenses weren’t that far apart.
Jackson 56 Western Brown 21: The winless Broncos were no match for the unbeaten Ironmen
Fayetteville Perry 31 Portsmouth Notre Dame 14: The Rockets fell behind 14-0 but rallied big-time with 31 unanswered points.
Hillsboro 14 Williamsburg 9: After taking a 9-0 lead, Williamsburg was unable to hold off Hillsboro in the second half. Loghan Kelley had a big game on the ground — 16-192-1 — but struggling through the air — 2-10-0 for 34 yards. Seth Howard had a sack and fumble recovery on defense for WHS.
