Warren JFK Beats Central in Defensive Battle, 14-0
Steubenville Catholic Central gave undefeated Warren JFK all they could handle in a road loss Saturday evening, 14-0. The Eagles, averaging 33.5 point in their first four games, were stopped on turnovers deep in Crusader territory on four occasions, including interceptions by Vinnie DiCarlantonio and Kutch Clark and fumble recoveries by Clark and Ryan Neely. The two scores came on big plays spaced less than two minutes apart in the second quarter – a 20 yard interception return, and a 71 yard run. Central’s offense, led by backup quarterback Noah Fayak, was held to -2 yards in the first half but had several sustained drives in the second half. Central, which drops to 1-4 on the season, returns home to take on Bellaire next Saturday.

Toronto Tops Central, 18-7
The Toronto Red Knights beat Steubenville Central at Clarke Hinkle Stadium on Friday evening, 18-7. After a scoreless first quarter which featured several fourth down stands by the Crusaders, Central marched down the field, but fumbled deep inside Toronto territory, and the Red Knights immediately turned the game around with a 93 yard touchdown run. Toronto took a 12-0 lead into halftime, and the score remained that way until Brody Mihalyo caught a 16 yard pass from Justin Hartzell to cut the lead to 12-7 barely a minute into the final period. Toronto closed the scoring at the 5:22 mark. Mihalyo led Central rushers with 133 yards. The Crusaders dropped to 1-3 on the season.

Central drops to 1-2 on the season and looks to even their record at Toronto on Friday.
