Chillicothe took a 15-0 lead at Warren and held on for their second win of the season in a 15-13, and their first of the year in the SEOAL.
Chalk it up to a two-point conversion by Adam Bixler to Zach Johnson midway through the 3rd quarter.
Bixler had been on the scoring end of a 33 yard touchdown pass from Ryan Mathis with 6:15 remaining in the quarter to take a 13-0 lead. The snap from center on the extra point attempt was high. Bixler ran right from his holder’s position and found Johnson to put the Cavs ahead 15-0.
The score was set up when the Cavaliers contained the Warriors’ wildcat attack deep in Warren territory. Jeremy Fivecoait’s punt sailed out of bounds at the Warren 33.
Chillicothe got on the board first thanks to another heads up special teams play. For a third time this season, Zach Johnson took a direct snap and converted a fake punt. This time it was on the Cavs’ first possession. Johnson found an opening and raced 40 yards to set the Cavs up at the Warriors’ 28. Mathis hit tight end Marcus Dunn on a pass to the 14 then completed a 14 yard strike to Johnson in the left side of the end zone.
The play completed a 10 play 65 yard drive and put the Cavs up 7-0.
The Cavs defense hounded Warren quarterback Dylan Leffingwell throughout the first half, forcing the Warriors into four punts and interceptions by Jalen Jones and Corey Wagner. Leffingwell was only 5-for-15 in the first half for 32 yards.
Defensive coordinator Jeff Arndt kept the pressure coming in the second half. Despite the pressure, the Warriors’ signal caller managed to complete most of his passes in the final two quarters, putting his team into scoring position.
The first came less than two minutes after the Cavs had gone up 15-0. Leffingwell scored on a 6 yard run to cap a 62 yard drive in the 3rd quarter.
Chillicothe had answered the score with a 90 yard kick return by Jalen Jones, however the return was nullified by a block to the back and the Cavs had to settle for the ball at the Warren 40. Noah Valentine’s 29 yard field goal attempt was right of the cross bar and Warren had new life.
Warren had dropped a 10-7 double overtime game two weeks ago and last week earned a 40-34 double overtime game over Logan. A score and a two point conversion would have certainly set up extra time again.
Warren’s last possession was aided by an unsportsmanlike penalty on the Chillicothe sideline. The penalty came after a big gain by Warren. On the play, the Cavs coaches complained one of their lineman was being held. The penalty set Warren inside the red zone with two minutes left in regulation.
Leffingwell completed a pass inside the one yard line and punched in for six with 25 seconds left.
Poised to tie the game, Leffingwell hit Fivecoait near the goal line. Chillicothe’s Jalen Jones forced Fivecoait to the ground. The ball popped loose and was recovered by a lineman for what was argued to be a live ball. The officials ruled the ball dead and Chillicothe was on the way to their second win on the season.
The soggy playing conditions limited the number of yards by both teams. The Cavs compiled 190 yards offense to 208 by Warren
The Cavs (1-2/2-6) are home next weekend with Jackson and Warren (2-2/4-4) will head to Gallia Academy.
