MOUNT VERNON — It was the shocker that carried the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets through their wildest ride in years.

Last year, Mount Vernon shocked the visiting Hilliard Bradley Jaguars, 29-22, as part of a five-game winning streak that nearly ended with an Ohio Capital Conference championship.

This year, it was Bradley that nearly had the upset of the season: Last week, the Jags led Big Walnut for all but the last 41 seconds, when the Golden Eagles pulled off an 11-10 victory.

With that game, and the Yellow Jackets’ decisive 22-0 victory over Franklin Heights, both teams come into Friday’s matchup with a lot of confidence.

Mount Vernon mixed up its offensive play-calling against the Falcons, utilizing Jordan Crabtree and Brandon Porter on inside runs more often. However, the main thrust of the offense still rides on the shoulders of Leevi Stump.
