Football team advances after Friday night win

BY LUKE BAUER

The varsity football team won an important league matchup against Watkins last Friday in Pataskala to improve their record to 5-1.

The Aces handed the Warriors (5-1) their first loss of the season according to captain Christian McDermott, who was finally cleared to play after breaking his fibula, as they battled through the torrential rain and cold weather.

The team scored six touchdowns in the 40-30 win. Three of them, including a kickoff return for a touchdown, were scored by senior Jett Nye, senior Patrick Oehlman added two more, and senior captain Trevor Steyn finished off the scoring for the Aces with a 10 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter.

The Aces hope to continue their LCL win streak against Licking Heights Friday at home.
