H.S. football notebook: Rushers led the way in TVL showdown


Drew Newcomb got to the ball at the same time one of the Blue Jays did and won the battle, giving the Green Dragons the ball back.

"We worked on that play this week in practice," Lewisburg coach Jeremy Winn said. "Max made it to one of our practices this week with his busy schedule. It's something we worked on."

n MAKING THE MOST OF AN OPPORTUNITY: In the third quarter of Friday night's game with Central Columbia, Lewisburg cornerback Ben Frankel was forced from the field after clutching at his back after a play.

Rather than take a timeout so Frankel to come back in, Winn sent Noah Inch into replace Frankel for one play.

Central Columbia looked to take advantage of Inch, sending a receiver deep down the left side line to challenge him.

Inch made the most of his opportunity, picking off the pass.

Lewisburg has 14 interceptions this season.

n TWICE AS NICE: Danville senior cornerback Caleb Jones had two third-quarter interceptions Friday.

He picked off a Garrett Kemberling pass intended for John Schaeffer just 18 seconds into the second half. His long return across midfield led to the Ironmen's fifth touchdown.

A second interception with 4:47 left in the third quarter led to the final score in a 45-7 game.

n A LONG BOOT: Ironmen kicker Shayne Riley booted a 31-yard field goal, which was three yards off his season-long. He is 5-of-6 on field goals this season.

He also boomed his third touchback of the year.
