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: April should bring welcome return of local racing

    MOTHER NATURE’S last stronghold on winter may slowly be releasing her grip as the calendar changes to April and racing begins to get under way throughout the region. 
    Locally, nothing has happened yet, but that may soon be changing. Mercer had to postpone their “Chiller Thriller” to this Saturday (April 5), weather permitting, featuring the NDRL Northeast Super Late Models, NDRL E-Mods, Crate Late Models, and Stock Cars. Mercer’s regular season opener featuring their weekly divisions of “410” Sprints, “358” Modifieds, “305” Sprints, Stock Cars, Mod Lites, and Mini Stocks has now been pushed back to April 12.

  • EXTRA INNINGS: Bonds ruined opening day for Pirates fans

    As this column begins today its 47th year, longtime readers no doubt expected to find what they have found at the beginning of every baseball season — predictions for upcoming summer.
    And as I sat down last week to start to put together some ideas for today’s entry, that is fully what I anticipated would fill this space.
    Well, I’m as surprised as you are; 2014’s season prognostications must wait until next week.
    I just can’t get past the fact that club president Frank Coonelly thought the celebration of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ first winning season in 21 years should include Barry Bonds.
    You gotta be kidding me!
