LEETONIA, OH- The Southern Local Indians came into week 7 against Leetonia on an absolute roll like no other, looking to not only keep that going, but they also were looking to secure their spot in the EOAC championship game. Southern’s juggernaut offense was too much for the Bears as Southern took a demanding victory, 48-6.

Morris wasn’t the only Indian who contributed on offense. Within the first quarter, Southern put up 280 yards with six different players scoring touchdowns. Ryan Exline found Markell Smith on a 52-yard pass. Exline punched it in with a sneak on the 1-yard line.
