FREDERICKTOWN — The Johnstown Johnnies (5-1, 3-0 MBC) got a bit of a scare from a Fredericktown Freddies’ defense that was ready for them.
Unfortunately for the Freddies, their offense sputtered all evening. Johnstown’s offense rolled up all 341 yards on the ground as the Johnnies shut out the Freddies, 14-0, in Friday’s Mid-Buckeye Conference matchup.
Right from the start, Fredericktown (3-3, 1-2 MBC) was able to move the ball downfield against the Johnnies. The Freddies opened at their own 35 with a short pass from quarterback Austin Hathaway to wide receiver Braxton McQueen. Hathaway and running back Logan Smith (11 carries, 32 yards) took turns running the football as the Freddies drove the ball down to the Johnnies’ 32. After a pair of incomplete passes, Hathaway hit wide receiver Chris Hoar (four catches, 49 yards) for a 13-yard pass and a first down at the Johnnies’ 20. From there the Freddies’ drive broke down. Logan Smith’s 2-yard run on third and three at the Johnstown 13, fell a yard short of a first down.
