WARREN, OH- Pittsburgh Steeler of yesteryear, Kordell Stewart made the nickname “Slash” ever popular in the late 90’s because he played so many positions on the field.  Fast forward over 2 decades and Warren JFK is witnessing it’s a new brand of “Slash” in the form of senior, Cam Hollobaugh.  St. Thomas Aquinas found that out first-hand on Kennedy’s way to a 37-7 victory.

The game started out as a chess match, with Kennedy taking the lead after a long drive stalled out in the red zone, and JFK would settle for a field goal to take a 3-0 lead from Sarosh Sheth.  However, on the ensuing kickoff, D’Andre Black housed a 70-yard return to give the Knights the lead.

From that moment on, the Eagles were awoken.

Led by the defensive line and outstanding linebacker play from Eddie Kiernan and his crew, Kennedy shut down the Knights the rest of the way- and even scored on a fumble caused in the endzone recovered by Ambrose Hoso just a few minutes into the second quarter.

Offensively, Jesse Likens toted the rock 13 times for 40 yards and a TD, while Cam Hollobaugh did a little bit of everything.  “Slash” had 47 yards passing on 8 of 9 completions, 13 carries for 86 yards, and also had 3 catches for 83 yards- add in a combined pair of touchdowns and he would be elected the Joe Dickey Electric Player of the game.

JFK (2-0) will now turn their attention to Conneaut (1-1) at home this Friday.

WARREN, OH – On Saturday in the middle of the day, the St. John ladies’ basketball team from Ashtabula traveled over to Warren to face the John F. Kennedy lady Eagles. Lead changes were frequent and it was a close game, but the Eagles came out victorious with a score of 56-50. 

The first quarter started off rather unsettling when within 10 seconds of the game there was an injured girl on St John’s team. Sydney Carpenter seemed to have landed awkwardly on her hip as she leaped for a jump ball. However, it did not stop her from playing in the game, for she drained two 3’s in the first quarter after resting her hip. The first few minutes of the game consisted of nonstop 3 point shots from both teams. Faith Hollobaugh drained two 3’s in back to back possessions with 3 in total in the quarter. 

In the second quarter the lead switched up a few times, but Kennedy ended the half with a 5 point lead. It also seemed to be the start of the Caitlyn Condoleon show, for she scored 11 points in the second quarter alone, scoring all but 2 points for the entire team in the quarter. St. John’s leading scoring of the quarter, Emily Cevera, had 7 points with two 3’s made. The Eagles increased their lead ending the half with a score of 32-27. 

The second half remained the same for Condoleon scoring 14 points in the second half. Both teams scored the same amount of points in the third and fourth quarters. There was also another injury on the St. John team. After a turnover resulting in St. John’s ball, Julieann Sheldon seemed to fall to the ground holding her right ankle. She was tended to and did not return for the rest of the game, for it seemed to be an ankle sprain. Kennedy held on to their lead throughout the rest of the game and finished with a 56-50 win over St. John.

Leading the lady Eagles in scoring was Caitlyn Condoleon with 28 points followed by Faith Hollobaugh with 15 points, all being 3’s. Leading the Fighting Heralds in scoring was Emily Cervera with 19 followed by Sydney Carpenter with 17. The Eagles are now 7-3 on the season while St. John is 1-5. The Eagles next play at East on January 13 at 5:30.
