WILDCATS KNOCK JEFFERSON DOWN A PEG

MAHONING VALLEY SPORTS

STRUTHERS OH- Jefferson came in to Friday having an incredible season. Their 5-1 record had them set at 2nd in Division 4 Region 13. Struthers season was on the other end of the spectrum. They have been on the wrong end of plenty of endings they’d rather forget. Winning is a good way to clear bad memories from the mind, and that’s exactly what the Wildcats were able to do with a 42-14 thumping of Jefferson.

Struthers had control of the game from the kickoff. They dominated the first half on their way to taking a 28-7 lead into the locker room. Anthony Carter had a great day for Struthers, and his third quarter 3 yard score put the game out of reach and made it 35-7.  After Jefferson answered quickly, Carter struck again with a 53 yard touchdown run to take away any momentum the Falcons might have gotten.

Struthers returns home next week hoping to build off this big win. They’ll be hosting Niles in another NE8 battle. Jefferson must shake off the loss and prepare to host conference leading South Range in Week 8.
