ANNA — Anna built a four-touchdown lead by the end of the first quarter and cruised to a 41-13 Midwest Athletic Conference win over Parkway on Friday.
Riley Huelskamp scored on a 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to give the Rockets a 34-0 lead. It was his third rushing TD of the night and ties him for two Anna records. He’s now tied in single-season rushing touchdowns (21) and career rushing TDs (34).
Huelskamp will look to become the sole record holder in both categories next Saturday when Anna closes out regular-season play at Delphos St. John’s (2-7, 1-6).
The Rockets (7-2, 6-1 MAC) had 416 yards of offense while the Panthers (1-8, 1-6) managed 176.
Bart Bixler ran for a 31-yard touchdown and a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter to put Anna up 14-0, then Huelskamp scored on runs of 3 and 15 yards to boost the lead to 27-0.
Hayden Davies finished the Rockets’ scoring in the fourth quarter with an 80-yard run.
Huelskamp finished with 217 rushing yards on 29 carries while Bixler ran for 107 yards on 16 carries. Bixler completed 2-of-5 passes for 4 yards with one interception.
Isaac Lininger had an interception for the Rockets, which are ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Division V state poll.
Fort Loramie 57, National Trail 6
The Redskins secured at least a share of the Cross County Conference title on Friday with their fifth consecutive lopsided win.
The Redskins (8-1, 7-0 CCC) are the only undefeated CCC team. Covington and Ansonia have one conference loss each — both at the hands of Fort Loramie, which is ranked No. 5 in the AP Div. VII state poll.
Fort Loramie has won its last four conference games by at least 44 points. They’ll try to keep the streak going next Friday when they return home and face Tri-County North (6-3, 5-2), which lost 42-0 to Miami East on Friday.
Nick Brandewie scored on a 1-yard touchdown with 7:42 left in the first quarter on Friday, but National Trail scored late in the first quarter to cut the lead to one.
It didn’t stay close for long. Devin Wehrman returned the resulting kickoff to the 10-yard line, then Collin Moore threw a touchdown pass to CJ Billing on the next play.
Max Hoying scored a short touchdown run and Moore scored two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter to give Fort Loramie a 36-6 halftime lead.

Schmitmeyer scored a 79-yard run and Niemeyer threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Brendan Bornhorst in the third quarter to finish the team’s scoring — and Bryan Falk made extra points after each TD.

New Bremen 36, Delphos St. John’s 14
The Cardinals ran away in the second half of a home MAC game on Friday.
New Bremen led 15-7 at halftime and scored one touchdown in the third quarter and two in the fourth to turn the game into a lopsided win.
The Cardinals (6-3, 4-3) have won three consecutive MAC games and will finish regular-season play on Friday at Minster. New Bremen can clinch a playoff berth with a win, though Drew Pasteur’s Fantastic50.net gives them a 64 percent chance at a postseason berth with a loss.
Ryan Bertke hit a 29-yard field goal early in the second quarter, then Mitchell Hays threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Bryce Blickle with 3:34 left, which increased New Bremen’s lead to 9-0 after a missed extra point.
Hays then scored on a 6-yard run with 2:02 left in the second quarter, but Delphos St. John’s Jared Wurst threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Brady Parrish with 29 seconds left to cut the lead to eight points at halftime.
Justin Tenkman scored on a 1-yard run early in the third to boost the lead to 22-7 after a two-point conversion, but Wurst scored on a 1-yard run with 26 seconds left to cut the lead back to eight points.
Nolan Bornhorst scored a 54-yard touchdown run with 11:09 left in the fourth quarter and added a 6-yard TD run with 4:31 left to boost New Bremen’s lead to 36-14.
Riverside 49, Ridgemont 0
