LISBON, OH- In a battle of teams looking to right the ship in the 2019 campaign, Lisbon knew they had to do more than average to beat a gritty East Palestine team.  They needed a budding star to emerge and take the reigns on the future, and they got that in RJ Schreffler on Friday when they rushed past the Bulldogs 26-7.

Schreffler ran for a trio of touchdowns on the night during his 21 rush, 108-yard performance.  Tyler Welsh also had a big night with a pair of scores, both on the ground.  Joey Fisher was the leading receiver with a catch for 25 yards.

For East Palestine, Dominick Cathers racked up 142 yards on 29 rushes while scoring the second touchdown of the season for the Brown and White.  Tyler Bistarkey was 2/3 from behind center and also had a reception on the night.

Lisbon improves to 1-3 while East Palestine still searches for their first win of the season.
