Madonna Tops Central, 28-7
Steubenville Central lost to Weirton Madonna at Jimmy Carey Stadium Friday evening, 28-7. The Blue Dons took a quick 14-0 lead within the first four minutes of the game, taking the opening kickoff for a TD, and then intercepted a pass on Central's first play from scrimmage and returned it 32 yards to Central's 18 before tallying another touchdown. Madonna scored again in the second quarter to take a 20-0 lead into halftime. The Crusaders drove to Madonna's three yard line on the strength of a 35 yard completion from Andrew Dorsey to Tyler Ialenti in the third quarter before being turned back on fourth down. Central finally got on the board in the final period on a 35 yard run by Dorsey. The Crusaders fall to 3-6 and conclude the regular season at Toronto next Friday.
