NORTH JACKSON, OH- The battle of the 5-1 teams between Mineral Ridge and Jackson-Milton looked to be a must-watch matchup coming into week 7. But the Rams had other ideas. The game was scoreless after the first, but Ridge’s Ian Erb changed the direction of the game by punching in two touchdowns on the ground to help the Rams go up 14-0. The BlueJays found some source of life with a Alex Schiavi to Ashton Green 77-yard passing touchdown to cut Ridge’s lead to 14-7. After that resurgence by Jackson-Milton, The Rams would control the rest of the play on both sides of the ball with steady offense and forceful defense to lead them to a demanding 42-7 victory over the BlueJays.  

Erb led the way for Mineral Ridge with 3 rushing touchdowns on the night

Looking forward, Jackson-Milton will move to 5-2 and will travel to Waterloo to take on the Vikings. Mineral Ridge moves to 6-1 on the season as they will travel to Sebring to take on the Trojans.
