CENTRAL OHIO MCDONALD’S AND JJHUDDLE GAMES OF THE WEEK
JONATHAN ALDER 30, MARYSVILLE 21
Player of the Game: Graham Johnston, Jonathan Alder, QB
The Lowdown: Led by Johnston, who rushed for 132 yards and TDs of 1 and 6 yards, the Pioneers won their second straight road game over a Division I opponent. JA (2-0), which is D-IV, ran the ball 58 times for 263 yards and four TDs (Austin DeHart and Nick Wrightsell added scores). Nick Smith kicked his third field goal of the season as well, this time a 25-yarder. JA overcame a 14-7 deficit by scoring 20 unanswered points.
Dylan Dearwester returned a fumble 2 yards for a TD for Marysville (1-1), which also got TD runs from Chris Coburn and Chris Bailey.
HILLIARD DAVIDSON 37, BROOKHAVEN 3
Player of the Game: J.D. Detmer, Hilliard Davidson, K
The Lowdown: It’s not often a kicker earns Player of the Game honors but Detmer did some serious kicking Friday. The senior accounted for 13 points by kicking three field goals (38, 43 and 39) and four PATs. The Wildcats (2-0) also benefited from a ground game that churned out 330 yards on 50 carries. Alex Mickley led the attack by rushing for 144 yards and two TDs, while Nick Seiffert added 81 yards and a TD. Brookhaven (0-2), which has now scored five points in two games, got on the board first thanks to a 24-yard field goal by Prince Gdoya. After that it was all Davidson.
