Snowden, Eagles race past FHS
FOSTORIA – Devin Snowden touched the ball just six times Saturday for Eastwood. That was four times too many for Fostoria.
Snowden ran for three touchdowns and 150 yards and returned a kick 77 yards for another score as Eastwood cruised to a 63-0 Northern Buckeye Conference win.
Snowden’s first three carries led to the game’s first two two scores, TD runs of 10 and 37 yards. His first carry was a 26-yard tote to set up his first score one snap later.
Brent Schlumbohm added a 21-yard scoring run on the only play of Eastwood’s third drive, and Grant Geiser capped a four-play, 69-yard drive with a 29-yard sprint on the final play of the opening period.
All four of those scores came after Fostoria punts of less than 30 yards, and Geiser tacked on a 7-yard TD run in the second quarter for the Eagles (7-2, 5-1 NBC).
Snowden returned the second-half kickoff 77 yards for a touchdown and raced 62 yards for another TD on Eastwood’s first snap of the third quarter five minutes later.
Ryan Mang raced 48 yards for a score later in the third, and Zach Thompson bulled in from the 2 in the fourth for the Eagles, who never punted and never attempted a pass.
Eastwood’s defense held the Redmen (0-9, 0-6) to 15 yards rushing and 49 passing. Juan Mendez caught two passes for 26 yards, with Cordero Diaz going 5 for 12 passing for 53 yards.
Extra points add up to win for Buckeye Central
MOUNT BLANCHARD – The point after attempt for the most part is usually a run-of-the-mill moment when watching any football game. Yet, that moment was what Riverdale needed to tie Buckeye Central in its 27-26 loss Friday.
Each quarter saw each team come out with a scoring drive, but the missed opportunities on PATs were the deal-breaker in the key moments.
Riverdale scored the first points of the game with a 2-yard run by Seth Knoll. The PAT was blocked, so the Falcons led 6-0.
The Bucks answered with 2:30 left in the first quarter off a Kameron Jones keeper on the goal line. The PAT was no good, and the game stayed tied.
In the second period, Buckeye Central was finally able to convert after a 22-yard run by Cody Roberts. After being down by seven, Riverdale tried to make up for the first failed attempt by going for two after its next touchdown. Yet, that attempt failed, again keeping the Falcons held to six points. They trailed at the end the half 13-12.
The third period kept in tune with the rhythm of the first half, with each team trading touchdowns back and forth.
The Bucks’ Kameron Jones found Denver Wright for a touchdown reception, putting Buckeye Central in control with 4:51 remaining in the third. Riverdale answered again, and converted on the two-point conversion.
The teams traded touchdowns for the remainder of the game with the Bucks’ Kameron Jones throwing a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Herrnstein.
Riverdale, which had struggled all game with PATs, scored with 5:06 remaining in the game. The Falcons needed to convert to take the lead, but Grant Loveridge’s pass fell incomplete.
Buckeye Central kept Riverdale grounded for the remainder of the game to come out with the win.
