Perkins 35, Huron 3
Coaches tend to be perfectionists, which may explain Jason Ziegler’s comment that his Perkins team could improve on its performance Friday at Huron Memorial Stadium.
The 35-3 romp might suggest otherwise.
Offensively, the Pirates held a 292-188 edge in total yardage and set the tone with a 14-play, 69-yard opening drive that ended with a 9-yard touchdown run from Mitchell Benkey, who broke multiple tackles on his way to the end zone.
Oak Harbor 42, Edison 33
Oak Harbor rallied back from a 19-0 deficit in the first quarter Friday night to slide by Edison 42-33 and remain undefeated in the Sandusky Bay Conference.
Edison scored on its first three possessions of the game, all in the first quarter, before the Rockets were able to make anything happen offensively.
“Anytime you get an SBC win, it’s a big win,” said Oak Harbor coach Mike May. “Especially when you go on the road. We told our guys all week and they knew it, this was going to be a slugfest until the very end, and that’s what it was.”
Margaretta 20, Port Clinton 14
A broken play broke the heart of what was a festive night for Port Clinton football fans Friday in a Sandusky Bay Conference matchup with rival Margaretta.
Some 4,000 fans packed into the stadium — primarily to see the Ohio State University marching band perform — and they also sat in on a tightly-played game which went down to the wire before Margaretta (2-4) pulled out a 20-14 victory over the Redskins (1-5).
The play of the game came midway through the fourth quarter with the score deadlocked at 14-14.
