MINERAL RIDGE OH- Pymatuning Runs All Over Ridge

Mineral Ridge and Pymatuning Valley both opened their seasons Friday looking to each get their first win of the new year. Senior QB for the Rams, Mark Bunch, knew he would have to be at his best to get the win over a heavily talented Py Valley roster.
Ridge took an early lead late in the 1st quarter when Bunch connected with Mason Miller for a 30 yard passing touchdown. Mineral Ridge struggled after that, however, and would be held scoreless for the remainder of the game.
The story of the night was the big 6’3”, 235 lb QB for the Lakers, Robert Verba. The Lakers used his size and agility, followed by the O-line’s size to plan out a perfect ground attack all night long.
Mineral Ridge had no answers all night long for the senior QB who led his Py Valley Lakers to get their first win of the season (1-0) Mineral Ridge falls to (0-1) early in the season
