MCDONALD OH- A.A Burkey Memorial Stadium has been the home of the Blue Devils since 1953. This was the last season McDonald will play in its friendly confines. They said goodbye to their loyal stadium with a big playoff win over Jackson Milton 26-14.
It was the Dom Schadl show as it usually is, he rushed for 280 yards on the ground and four touchdowns. That included a 62 yard touchdown burst on the Blue Devils first play from scrimmage.
The Blue Jays fought back as long as they could. Down 14-0 they had a big drive capped off by a Frankie Prozy touchdown run to cut the lead to 14-6. The Blue Jays drove out of the halftime break, but a lost fumble in McDonald’s territory ended the momentum. Prozy gained 45 yards on the ground and 98 through the air.
McDonald advances in the playoffs to play at Leetonia next Friday night.
