Princeton 41, Colerain 37
There used to be three certainties in life: death, taxes and Colerain winning Greater Miami Conference games.
Now, the Cardinals have dropped two of three to start the 2020 season.
Two weeks after Lakota West ended Colerain’s 87-game conference win streak, Princeton smashed another long slump, beating the Cardinals for the first time since 1997.
The Vikings trailed for the majority of the contest, but quarterback Mekhi Lynn scored a touchdown in the final seconds to complete a 17-point fourth-quarter comeback and keep his team undefeated.
Ross 35, Talawanda 0
The Ross Rams didn’t attempt a pass against Talawanda.
They didn’t need to, as they rode Jackson Gifford, C.J. Boze, Brayden Fraasman and Jaye Warren to the top spot in the Southwest Ohio Conference. Gifford and Fraasman both tallied more than 90 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Warren tacked on a score, too, tarnishing the Brave’s previously undefeated record.
Harrison 31, Mount Healthy 21
After losing tough ones to Chaminade Julienne and Talawanda in back-to-back weeks, the Harrison Wildcats got their first win of 2020 Friday.
They led Mount Healthy the entire way after a first-quarter rushing touchdown from Masyn Dallio, and their defense forced five Fighting Owl turnovers. Dom Little recorded three interceptions.
La Salle 35, Lakota East 13
La Salle hopped all over the Lakota East Thunderhawks, finding the end zone less than two minutes into the game and rattling off 21 unanswered points by the middle of the second quarter.
Lakota East scored two touchdowns before halftime, but the Lancers pitched a second-half shutout and forced three costly Thunderhawk turnovers to move to 2-1.
St. Xavier 38, Elder 24
The Pit might be a little less intimidating without 10,000 screaming fans.
Elder’s esteemed stadium has hosted two GCL South games this year, but the Panthers have dropped both. La Salle outdueled Elder in a Week 1 shootout before the St. Xavier Bombers completed a second-half comeback on the Panthers’ home turf in Week 3.
After a 10-10 tie at halftime, Elder took control in the third and jumped ahead, 24-17, heading into the game’s final quarter. But St. X put up 21 points in the fourth to erase a seven-point deficit, utilizing its run game to polish off the victory.
Roger Bacon 82, Norwood 28
The Spartans’ LSU-committed running back, Corey Kiner, scored seven touchdowns by the middle of the third quarter.
Kiner’s final statline: 17 carries, 363 yards, seven touchdowns.
