Findlay Back sets Records: Vance Settlemire raced 51 yards for a touchdown on the first play of the game Friday, then just kept running his way into the Findlay record book.
Settlemire rushed for 347 yards and six touchdowns (51, 18, 42, 24, 45 and 33 yards) in a 61-42 win over Toledo St. Francis.
Air Raid: Milbury Lake’s Jared Rettig threw seven TD passes covering 62, 53, 42, 50, 46, 71 and 45 yards in a 54-40 win over Bloomdale Elmwood; Lebanon’s Luke Morgan was 26 of 48 for 321 yards and four TDs but he couldn’t stop Xenia from earning a 41-36 win.
Streaking Both Ways: Coldwater’s 41-6 win over St. Henry is the 17th straight time that the Cavaliers have defeated the Redskins in the annual Backyard Battle; Dayton Northridge ended a 22-game losing skid by beating Camden Preble Shawnee 34-26; defending Div. IV state champ Creston Norwayne (6-0) handed Doylestown Chippewa a 56-7 loss for its 29th straight loss; Ontario’s Jordan Campbell rushed for 189 yards and four TDs on 24 carries as the Warriors stunned Bucyrus Wynford 26-7, snapping the Royals’ 63-game regular season winning streak. Wynford’s last previous regular-season loss was against Sycamore Mohawk on Sept. 1, 2006 (28-7).
Running Backs Only: Logan beat Portsmouth 34-13 for its first win of the season — without throwing a pass. Cory McCarty rushed for 270 yards on 39 carries as the Chieftains ran 53 plays, all on the ground. They lost their quarterback to concussion symptoms and Caleb Lewellen filled in. It’s the first time Logan hasn’t thrown a pass since 1999 and only the second time since 1958.
