BOWLING GREEN — The Bobcats hung on after the Redmen scored with 14.6 seconds left to pull within a point on Friday night.

Bowling Green’s Trey Loescher rushed for 137 yards, including a 55-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that put the Bobcats up 14-7.

Fostoria tied it up on a 81-yard TD pass from Danner to Tony Reynolds.

BG had 330 yards of total offense, while Fostoria finished with 232. The Bobcats also intercepted three passes.

Schneider was 11-of-15 passing for 118 yards with three TDs and rushed for 135 yards on 15 carries with a 23-yard TD run. He hooked up with Dakota Windnagle for TD passes of 16 and 4 and found De’onte Bryant for a 23-yard TD toss.

Phenix rushed for 130 yards on just five carries and also had a 49-yard interception return for a TD in the third quarter.

Austin Rine booted a 40-yard field goal for the Panthers (2-0), and Eddie Mader capped the scoring with a one-yard plunge.

Nick Vidra hauled in a 55-yard TD pass from Devin Fryman in the second for Rossford (0-2), and Steven Nordhaus caught a 76-yard TD pass from Ryan Clay in the third.

Napoleon 43, Wauseon 14

WAUSEON — The host Indians grabbed a 14-6 lead in the second quarter, but that was it as Napoleon (1-1) closed with 37 unansweredpoints.

The Wildcats got a 24-yard touchdown run from Nate Walker to pull within 14-12 at halftime, and Tyler Miller’s 83-yard kickoff return for a TD to start the second half put Napoleon up for good.

Following a safety, which put the Wildcats ahead 22-14, Walker (seven carries, 87 yards) and Bryant Schlade sandwiched three-yard TD runs around a 48-yard scoring run from Charlie Harris to cap their 31-point second-half surge.

Napoleon outgained Wauseon (1-1) 284 to 220 in total offense. Jessie Finney scored on a five-yard run, and Ty Sumpken hit Logan Blue on a seven-yard pass for the Indians’ two scores.
