High School Football: Grove City, Lakeview grab wins

— In high school football action Friday night, Grove City and Lakeview both rattled off wins.

Grove City routed Oil City 70-22 on the road, while Lakeview picked up a 24-19 win over visiting Eisenhower.

- Grove City 70, Oil City 2 - At Oil City, the Eagles stayed unbeated with another big win in Region 5-AAA.

Wes Phipps ran for four of Grove City’s nine TDs while rushing for a game-high 140 yards. Foster Reznor added another pair of scores to pace head coach Jeff Bell’s Eagles, who improved to 7-0.

Oil City, which had met Grove City in a thriller a year ago at Forker Field, tallied just the two points on a safety in the second frame. The Eagles held the Oilers to only 144 yards of total offense.

- Lakeview 24, Eisenhower 19 - In Stoneboro, the Sailors (3-4) ended a skein of three straight setbacks with a pair of game-saving plays in the final minutes.

Trailing 19-16 with 36 seconds to play, Lakeview quarterback Zach Bigley hit Zac VanDusen with a 20-yard touchdown pass to take the lead on the Knights. Blake Reddick followed the score with a run for the conversion that put the Sailors up by 5.

VanDusen then pilfered a Knights’ pass on Eisenhower’s ensuing possession to seal the win with 26 seconds to go.

Reddick finished with another big night for the Sailors, running for 162 yards and a pair of TDs and, defensively, picked another Knights’ pass earlier in the tilt.

  • THE CHECKERED FLAG: Western Pa.'s Zeigler scores big

    LAST FRIDAY, I headed west to Attica Raceway Park for the FAST “410” Sprint Cars and UMP Late Model “Summer Nationals Hell Tour” along with the first appearance by the UMP (E) Mods.  A great field of 37 Late Models, 28 Sprints, and 23 E-Mods were on hand along with a packed house.  Overcast conditions made for a fast 1/3-mile track that provided great racing all night long. 
    Craig Mintz picked up the win the last time I was at Attica on June 6, but shortly thereafter suffered a back injury that kept him out of action for a month.  On Friday night, Mintz returned and led every lap of the 30-lap Sprint Car feature for his season’s third win.  The Gibsonburg, Ohio driver’s victory was worth $3,000 and had to hold off a last lap slide job by Christopher Bell.

  • THE CHECKERED FLAG: Up and down week for Sodeman

    LAST FRIDAY I headed south to add I-77 Raceway Park to my track attended list, which made for 162nd track all-time.  I-77 is located south of Ripley, West Virginia just off Interstate 77.  This season, I-77 moved from the crowded Saturday night line-up to Friday night racing and teamed up with Ohio Valley Speedway.  I-77 normally runs Super Late Models, Semi-Late Models, E-Mods, Mod Lites, and 4-Cylinder Mini Stocks.  With the Sprint Cars on the schedule, I decided to make the trip and they were joined by the Super Late Models, Semi-Late Models, and E-Mods.
