Malvern rolls over Newcomerstown

FPS staff report

Malvern 41, Newcomerstown 13
Malvern senior Brady Webber rushed for 92 yards and scored three touchdowns on runs of 10, 2, and 1 yards to lead the Hornets to a 41-13 Inter-Valley Conference win at Newcomerstown.

The win improved the Hornets to 5-1 for the year and 2-1 in the IVC.

“We got off to a slow start on both sides of the ball,” said Head Coach Dave Tucci. “But after our first score we got moving and our defense got stronger as the night went on. In fact, their only two scores came against our backups.”

As a team, the Hornets rushed for 290 yards, with Cobin Plessinger leading the way 131 yards on just 11 carries and two touchdowns. He scored on a carry from 73 yards out and had a 40-yard interception return.

Max Kapron scored the Hornets other touchdown on a 39-yard pass from quarterback Trey Tucci in the first quarter.

Jibril Dansby accounted for both Trojan touchdowns on runs of 5 and 7-yards in the final frame.

Malvern will host Strasburg Friday night.

Ridgewood 34, Sandy Valley 23
Ridgewood scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to defeat visiting Sandy Valley last Friday night 34-23 in an Inter-Valley Conference game.

The loss dropped the Cardinals to 4-2 for the year and 2-1 in the IVC.

Tyler Smith scored all three touchdowns for the Cardinals.

Things don’t get any easier for the Cardinals as they will host Garaway Friday.

West Branch 35, Minerva 7
It was all Brenden Wells last Friday night at Minerva.

Wells carried the ball 23 times for 212 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead West Branch to a 35-7 win over Minerva in a Northeastern Buckeye Conference game.

The Warriors put the game away early, scoring twice in the first quarter on a 70-yard run by Wells and a 10-yard run by quarterback Troy James.

James finished with 70-yards passing and 69-yards rushing.

Minerva’s only score came in the second quarter on a 1-yard run by Mitch Soles.

Lion quarterback Jake Riley hit 12-of-21 passes for 105 yards and rushed for 23 yards.

It was the fourth loss in a row for the Lions, who fall to 2-6 overall and 1-2 in the NBC.

West Branch remains undefeated in the NBC and 3-3 overall.

Minerva will be at Marlington Friday and West Branch will host Canton South.

Steubenville Catholic Central 54, Conotton Valley 7
The Crusaders jumped out to a 34-0 first half lead and cruised to a 54-7 win over visiting Conotton Valley last Friday night at Harding Stadium.

Keaton Carrothers scored the Rockets’ only touchdown on an 8-yard run.

The game was called late in the game due to lightning.

The Rockets, who are now 3-3 for the year, will be at Paden City Friday night.
