Barnesville Overwhelms Central, 50-0
Barnesville dominated Steubenville Central on both sides of the ball on their way to a convincing 50-0 win Saturday evening at Harding Stadium. Seven different Shamrocks rushed for a touchdown in the game. Barnesville tallied one score in each of the first two quarters to lead at halftime 14-0, then poured it on the second half to win going away, scoring 20 points with a running clock after taking a 30-0 lead. The victors accumulated over 400 total yards while holding the Crusaders to under 50 yards. Central falls to 2-4 on the season and travels to Conotton Valley (2-3) next Friday.

Windham Stifles Central, 36-6
Windham High School spoiled Homecoming Night by defeating Steubenville Central Saturday evening 36-6. The Bombers struck quickly on their first possession with a 44 touchdown run, then converted a fumble on Central's first play from scrimmage by marching 35 yards to build a 16-0 lead only 3:36 into the game. The Crusaders responded with a score of their own near the end of the first quarter, highlighted by a 28 yard pass from Andrew Dorsey to Tyler Ialenti. Windham scored again early in the second period but would be denied on two more drives deep into Crusader territory. On one play, an apparent TD was nullified as Miki Jones of Windham hurdled over a Central player for a personal foul near the end zone; after another penalty, Tim Lamantia subsequently recovered a fumble to stop the drive. Later Windham again lost the ball, this time at Central's three, leaving the score at the half 22-6. The Bombers widened their margin with a third quarter touchdown and concluded the scoring with a 58 yard interception return. Miryam Gonzales was crowned Homecoming Queen at halftime. Central drops to 2-3 and hosts Barnesville (3-1) next Saturday.

Central Rebounds for 24-13 Win over Rosecrans
Steubenville Central rallied to defeat Zanesville Rosecrans 24-13 on Saturday evening at Harding Stadium. Central marched down the field on its opening drive, capped by a 3 yard Todd Jackson run. They added to the lead with a 25 yard field goal by David Kissinger. The Bishops cut the lead to 10-6 shortly before the end of the half and then forged ahead late in the third period. From that point it was all Crusaders, beginning with an 84 yard drive of over eight minutes, with Dashon Hawkins scoring from one yard out. Central continued their late dominance of the contest with another TD on an eleven play drive, this time by Andrew Dorsey, who then sealed the game with an interception on defense. The Crusaders even their record at 2-2 and take on undefeated Windham (3-0) next Saturday for the annual Homecoming game.
