In desperate need of a victory to boost team morale the Loveland (2-3) defense made a statement in a 13-7 road win at previously unbeaten Mount Healthy (4-1). The Tigers held the Owls to -7 yards rushing, 68 yards passing, no offensive touchdowns and 1-11 on third down conversions as they smashed a team that was averaging 36 points per contest.
The tone was set by linebackers senior Joe Moran, junior Tyler Barger and sophomore Charlie Lawler who were constantly in the face of Mount Healthy quarterbacks all night. Barger had two sacks, Moran and Lawler one each as the unit racked up five in the tilt. Their pressure led to three second half interceptions for the Tigers. Lawler’s classmate Max Mather had two picks and Anthony Johnson the other.
