Dunbar D throttles Cin. Hughes; Meadowdale falls to Shroeder, why Centerville really beat Trotwood

Dunbar D rattles Hughes, Meadowdale falls to Schroeder
After a rough loss last week in which Dunbar held a big lead but couldn't stop Big School Cin. Princeton in the second half, the team knew that it had let a big chance slip away.
Winning that game vs a big school? Would've sent the Wolverines on their way up the ladder for a playoff berth.
Instead? A crushing loss, including two injured QBs, put them at 1-2.
So going into Stargell Stadium to face the Hughes squad, the writing was on the wall.

Win or face a reality of not making the playoffs.

With that being said, the Wolverines put on a brilliant defensive performance as they won 32-12 last weekend, solidifying themesleves as a playoff contender, and winning in the Nati' as well- not a easy task- for the first time in a long long time.

   The Wolverines intercepted two passes for TDs, recovered 3 fumbles, sacked the QB multiple times and completely controlled the game.
Star wideout Terrance Landers Jr.  scored on 2 long TD passes to provide the offense.
Dunbar Coach Darren Powell was really pleased with the offense, but ecstatic about the D.

"That type of defense will get us to the playoffs this year." he reiterated to his squad.

Super sophomores Joseph Scates (#6) & Tavion Thomas (#27) were the recipients of the pick 6's that fueled the win.
Senior Julien Stokes also played well on D.
Can Dunbar do the same thing to a Schroeder team
that defeated a tough Meadowdale team last week in Cincy?

Rams get tough call late, lose @ Centerville 
 The Trotwood- Centerville match-up has produced some great battles but I don't know if any are more
 controversial then what happened last Friday night in Centerville.

Centerville jumped out to a huge lead, but Trotwood made a stinging comeback to take the lead. After going down 33 - 28 lead in the 4th quarter, Centerville got the ball back with a chance to take the lead themselves. After getting deep in Rams territory they were stopped on 4th down, and with less than a minute left, it looked like a win for Trotwood.
 Lo and behold a flag was thrown.
 Initially thought to be a unsportsmanlike conduct for a celebration, turned out to be a too many players (13) on the field penalty on the Rams D.

Centerville accepted the penalty and the ball back, and ended up scoring a touchdown very shortly after, leaving a furious Trotwood-Madison team to say the least.
While Centerville (2-2) desperately needed the win, Trotwood (3-1) will have to bounce back & still looks good as far as the playoffs are concerned.
