While most southeast Ohio football teams began their seasons last Friday, the Nelsonville-York Buckeyes and the Trimble Tomcats had to wait anxiously one more day and start theirs last Saturday. The Buckeyes traveled to Glouster and made their presence known with a 42-6 victory over the Tomcats.
The Buckeye domination was lead by running back Dustin Young, who scored four of Nelsonville-York's six touchdowns. Young's quick feet earned him 260 total rushing yards during his two and half quarters of playing time, and 200 of those yards were earned in the first half alone. Quarterback, Nathan Dean, and receiver, Daniel Kline, also had one TD each on the night.
Nelsonville-York's offensive leaders stole the show, but the defense also put up a strong front against Trimble. However, the Tomcats managed to dodge a shut-out late in the third quarter with a TD pass from quarterback, Justin Jewell. The Buckeyes look to keep their momentum going with another Saturday game at Newark Catholic, and the Tomcats will try and take down last year's TVC-Hocking champs at Wahama on Friday.
