FREDERICKTOWN — It was business as usual for the Fredericktown Freddies, who turned a nearly flawless performance Saturday night in a 36-7 home playoff victory over Woodsfield Monroe Central.
The Freddies took their first drive to the house on a Matt Smith touchdown run, and never looked back. They drove past the 20-yard line nine times. Brandon Smith went a personal best 5-for-5 on field goal attempts.
Monroe Central drove the length of the field on the legs of Tyler Kinchen, scoring at the midway point of the first quarter, but didn’t score again. The Seminoles were held to three-and-out on four occasions. The Freddies forced five turnovers, including two interceptions each by Brandon Helmick and Tyler Hathaway.
