Central Handles Trinity, 37-7
Steubenville Central cruised to a 37-7 victory over Morgantown Trinity Christian on Saturday evening at Harding Stadium. The Crusaders put up three scores in the first six minutes of the game to build a 20-0 lead. Anthony Sprochi took the opening kickoff 99 yards and was tackled just short of the goal line, where Jeffrey Dawson would run it in on the next play. After an Anthony LeFever interception, Central quickly scored again. LeFever, taking over for the injured Ryan Gorman, ran 32 yards to the seven yard line, and Dawson once again scored on a rushing TD. On the first play of the next possession, Dawson scored from 52 yards out. Jayden Keeder and LeFever added rushing touchdowns, the latter on a 68 yard play to build the lead to 34-0 midway though the second quarter. At that point, both coaches agreed to invoke the running clock rule, which would normally be effect in the second half. Jack Rook nailed a 25 yard field goal in the third period, and the Warriors got on the board in the final minute. Central improves to 4-4 and travels to Weirton Madonna next Saturday for a 12:00 game.
