GARRETTSVILLE OH- Garfield was given the opportunity to send an early message to the MVAC facing undefeated LaBrae. The message was emphatically sent as the G-Men wore the Vikings down on their way to a 35-14 win.
Anthony Demma continued to rumble his way through opposing defenses. He carried the ball 23 times and gained 191 yards.
Garfield’s defense came up big in the moments that really mattered. After the Vikings ran a kick 65 yards to the house to close out the first half, the G-Men defense didn’t let them score again. It wasn’t for a lack of opportunities though, Garfield turned the ball over on their first two possessions of the second half. But the Garfield defense responded forcing a turnover on downs both times the Vikings got the ball.
Garfield continues their debut tour through the MVAC in Week 5 hosting Newton Falls. LaBrae will need to bounce back as they will face off with Champion on Friday.
