Indians blank Panthers
CHESAPEAKE — Friday’s game between the Lucasville Valley Indians and the Chesapeake Panthers was a lesson in real estate. It’s all about location, location, location.
The Panthers found their offense located deep in their own territory for most of the game as they lost 9-0 to the Indians.
“We had a lot field and they had a short field. We just couldn’t go 80 (yards),” said Panthers coach Phil Davis. “We had two nice drives in the fourth quarter, but until then we were pinned in our own territory.
“But give Valley credit. They played hard. They did what they needed to do.
Lucasville (3-1) scored the game’s only touchdown on an 18-yard run by Tyler Evans with 1:32 left in the first quarter.
The only other score was a safety in the third quarter when David Crabtree sacked Panthers quarterback Aaron Donahoe in the end zone.
Chesapeake got inside the Valley 40- and 20-yard lines in the second half but could not capitalize. It was their only two real threats.
“We kept starting first and 15. We’d have a couple of good plays and then a penalty or bad play,” said Davis.
Donahoe led the Panthers with 75 yards rushing an 76 passing. Tyler Evans ran 18 times for 71 yards to lead Valley.
