Dayton Round-Up: Trotwood-Madison nips Northmont

Keon’tae Huguely scored on a seven-yard run with just 12 seconds left to boost Trotwood-Madison (4-1, 1-0) over Northmont (2-3, 0-1), 20-14. It was the fourth straight win for the Rams, who dropped their opener to currently unbeaten Winton Woods. It was an up and down night for Huguely who went 4-10 for -25 yards with an interception throwing the ball but he had 51 yards rushing while snaring a pick on defense. Both teams committed three turnovers and had more than 70 yards in penalties in this ugly but exciting battle. The Trotwood-Madison defense stymied the Thunderbolts rushing attack. They held Northmont to just 72 yards on 32 carries despite a season high 71 yards rushing by Michael Franklin. Rams freshman Hezekiah Hudson-Davis led all rushers with 80 yards. He now has 591 yards on the ground this season.

There may not be anyone hotter than Centerville (3-2, 1-0) quarterback Chase Harrison. The sophomore went 26-29 for 348 yards with four touchdowns passing and had a rushing score as the Elks crushed Beavercreek (2-3, 0-1). It was the third straight win for Centerville. They went 2-8 a year ago. It was the third consecutive 300-plus yard passing game for Harrison. During that span, he is 68-92 (73.9%) for 988 yards with 13 touchdown passes, no interceptions and one rushing touchdown. Centerville has tallied 131 total points in those affairs after scoring just 22 in its first two tilts. Taking advantage Harrison’s hot arm was receiver, Will Linkhart. The transfer from Beavercreek had eight receptions for 136 yards and three touchdowns. It was his fourth consecutive game with at least eight catches. Bryce McMahon churned out 118 yards with two touchdowns on the ground and had six receptions for 104 more yards for the victors.

It looks like Piqua (3-2, 3-0) has found its identity as they knocked off Butler (2-3, 1-2), 14-7. It was the third straight win for the Indians who dropped their first two contests to begin the season. The Piqua defense is allowing just 8.5 points per game over its last four affairs. They were stellar again on Friday night coming up with five sacks, forcing to turnovers and holding Butler to just 3-13 on third and fourth down conversion attempts. Jerrell Lewis had two sacks, giving him six on the year. Caron Coleman did it on both sides of the ball for the Indians. He had five solo tackles, 157 yards rushing and the Indians only two touchdowns.

On a night where the Xenia (4-1, 2-0) run game struggled to get traction the defense picked up the slack as the Buccaneers blanked Sidney (1-4, 0-2), 20-0. It was the second consecutive shutout and fourth straight win for the Bucs. Xenia held the Yellow Jackets to 104 yards of total offense, had four sacks and forced three turnovers. Senior Chris Jones had two of those takeaways with a fumble recovery and an interception. Classmate Brett Russell led the Buccaneers offense with a rushing and a passing touchdown. Xenia is just a one-point loss away from being unbeaten after dropping the opener to Beavercreek, 21-20.
