Ashtabula, OH- In a hard-fought battle at Lakeside Stadium, the Lakeside Dragons faced off against the West Geauga Wolverines in an exciting Friday night showdown. From the very start, it was evident that both teams were determined to give their all on the gridiron.

The first quarter saw West Geauga’s Nassir Levy making an impressive 9-yard touchdown run, followed by a successful extra point, putting the Wolverines ahead 7-0. As the clock ticked down, Finn Keenan extended the Wolverines’ lead with a 3-yard touchdown run, securing another extra point for a 14-0 advantage at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Nassir Levy continued to dominate, scoring a 1-yard touchdown run with yet another successful extra point, pushing the lead to 21-0 for West Geauga. The Lakeside Dragons were struggling to find their footing, but the Wolverines’ defense remained relentless.

The third quarter saw Nassir Levy finding the end zone once more, this time with an 8-yard touchdown run, and the extra point was good, extending West Geauga’s lead to a commanding 28-0.

However, the Lakeside Dragons refused to back down. In the fourth quarter, Nate Bartone broke through West Geauga’s defense with a 13-yard touchdown run. Although the 2-point conversion attempt was unsuccessful, Lakeside finally got on the board, trailing 28-6.

The Dragons continued their resurgence with Alex DiSalvatore scoring a 5-yard touchdown run, but once again, the 2-point conversion fell short, making the score 28-12 in favor of West Geauga.

In the waning minutes of the game, Nassir Levy sealed the victory for the Wolverines with a 4-yard touchdown run, securing the extra point and bringing the final score to 35-12 in favor of West Geauga.

Despite the loss, the Lakeside Dragons showed resilience and determination, and they will look to bounce back as they face the Madison Blue Streaks in their upcoming CVC Lake Division matchup in week 6. Meanwhile, the West Geauga Wolverines will hit the road to take on the Hawken Hawks in their CVC Chagrin Division opener, hoping to build on their hard-earned victory.
