Middle School Football

With middle school football in full swing, here is a recap of Tuesday night’s action.

West View 34, Meadowview 6

On West View’s eighth grade night, it was the Vikings of Meadowview who got off to a quick start Tuesday night.

Late in the first quarter, Meadowview drove the ball down the field on runs from Anthony Brabson and Eli Davis before Darius Dyson caught a 13-yard pass for the first score of the game.

However, after that it was all West View ass the Indians put up 34 unanswered.

The scoring started just seconds after Meadowview got on the board. After a 65-yard run from Berekat Evans on the first play of the drive, the Indians Jack Bivens ran one into the end zone from seven yards out.

West view added to their lead in the second quarter when Gavin Mitchell picked off a pass and took it 46 yards for a touchdown. West View scored once more in the first half on another pick six, this time from John Michael Rosen who took it in from 12 yards to give the Indians a 22-6 halftime lead.

Evans was back at it again in the third quarter, this time catching a 51-yard touchdown pass to put West View up 28-6. The Indians final touchdown came from Ty Cooper, who broke off a 56-yard touchdown run.

Lincoln Heights 38, East Ridge 0

In the nightcap, Lincoln Heights scored early and often in their lopsided win over East Ridge.

The Patriots wasted no time getting the scoring going when Camren Richards ran for 23 yards, setting up a 28-yard touchdown run from Zion McCarty.

Then, just minutes later, it was Richards and McCarty again. This time Richards ran for 25 yards before McCarty scored from seven yards out to put the Patriots up 12-0.

With time winding down in the first half, Lincoln Heights scored two more times as RJ Lawson scored on a 25-yard run and Richards got in on the scoring, going 51 yards with less than a minute left to put Lincoln Heights up 26-0 at the half.

Lawson scored once more to start the second half, running one in from 33 yards out. Lawson capped off the scoring when he intercepted a pass that led to a four-yard touchdown run from him.
