St. Xavier Earns Share of GCL South Title

Senior Myles Homan kicked a 16-yard field goal as time expired to give St. Xavier a 24-21 victory over La Salle Friday night at Lancer Stadium, earning the Bombers (5-2, 2-1 in GCL South) a share of the league championship.  The loss was the first this season for the Lancers (6-1, 1-1), who are ranked No. 1 in both the Associated Press Ohio Division II state poll and The Enquirer’s Division II weekly coaches poll.

Bombers’ junior quarterback Matt Wittrock engineered the game-winning drive, hitting a couple of key passes to ultimately set up Homan’s game-winning kick.  That drive followed a 1-yard touchdown run by sophomore Jarell White – who finished with 167 rushing and three TDs – and a two-point tying conversion run by junior Jeremy Larkin, who finished with 116 yards rushing but was held without a TD for the first time this season.

La Salle closes its GCL South schedule at Elder on Friday, October 31.  If the Lancers win that game, coach Nate Moore’s team will earn a share of the GCL South championship along with Moeller and St. Xavier – which finished their GCL South schedules at 2-1.

Moeller Bounces Back, Runs To Win over Elder

Junior Sterling Noes picked up 114 of Moeller’s 231 yards rushing Friday night, including a pair of touchdown runs, to help the Crusaders erase a one-point halftime deficit and emerge with a 26-17 victory over Elder at Lockland Memorial Stadium.  The win earns Moeller (6-1, 2-1 in GCL South), ranked No. 1 in The Enquirer’s Division I weekly coaches’ poll and No. 6 in The AP Ohio Division I poll, a share of the league championship.

Noes scored on TD runs of 54 and 4 yards, respectively, in a game played in a driving rainstorm.  Junior kicker Matthew Coghlin continues to be a weapon for the Crusaders, hitting two field goals in the game.  Coghlin is now 10 of 12 on the season and 17 of 21 in his varsity career.  Junior quarterback Peyton Ramsey had another strong game for Elder (4-3, 0-2), connecting on 17 of 27 passes for 215 yards and a TD.
