CANTON OH- On a hot Friday night in Canton, The Falcons played up a division, as they faced off against a perennial Division 1 powerhouse in The Canton Mckinley Bulldogs.
In a matchup of size, The Bulldogs went in with a clear advantage. With receivers of impressive stature such as Harold Fannin Jr and the 6’8” offensive lineman Stefan Monahan.
But the strongest muscle on the field came in the heart of The Falcons. Especially in the form of Sophomore running back DJ Williams. Totalling 3 touchdowns on the ground, DJ was certainly playing a symphony on the field. As star quarterback Devin Sherwood scored twice with his legs as well.
The Bulldogs made it interesting. Down to the wire, needing an onside kick, the ball ended up in the hands of Dan Evans III for a scoop and score. Ballgame.
As Austintown hopes this is not their only victory in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium this season. Next up for The Falcons, they take aim against another Division 1 stronghold in Glen Oak. While The Bulldogs will look to turn their season around at Huber Heights as they are set to face the Wayne Warriors in week 3.
