After a slow start, New Bremen scored four consecutive touchdowns in the second half to take control of a Div. VII, Region 28 quarterfinal on Friday at Cardinal Stadium.

The Redskins took a 7-0 into halftime after Bryce Brookhart threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Carter Ontrop in the final seconds of the first half.

But the Cardinals took control late in the third quarter.

Mitchell Hays scored on a 5-yard run with 4:48 left in the third to tie the score, then scored on a 5-yard run with 10 seconds left to give the Cardinals a 14-7 lead.

Riverside 14, Tri-Village 12

The Pirates scored the first two touchdowns of the game and held on from there for a victory in a Div. VII, Region 28 quarterfinal on Friday in New Madison.

Landon Stewart intercepted a pass by Tri-Village quarterback Layne Sarver in the first quarter, and Kale Long ran up the middle 71 yards for a touchdown shortly after. Long then ran up the middle into the end zone on a two-point conversion try to give the squad an 8-0 lead with 6:35 left.

Myles Platfoot threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Stewart with 5:06 left, which boosted the lead to 14-0 after a failed two-point conversion try.

Sarver scored on a short touchdown run late in the second quarter, but his pass on a two-point conversion try was intercepted. He scored on a long touchdown run in the third quarter but was stopped on a run up the middle on a two-point conversion try.

The Pirates (7-1) advance to face undefeated Marion Local in a regional semifinal this Friday in Maria Stein.

Lehman Catholic at Waynesfield-Goshen, canceled

Lehman Catholic’s Northwest Central Conference contest at Waynesfield-Goshen scheduled for Friday was canceled on Thursday afternoon. Waynesfield-Goshen attributed the cancellation “to COVID-19 concerns.”

The Cavaliers (3-3) — which canceled Week 5 and 6 games due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the school — do not currently have a Week 10 game scheduled.

Versailles 35, Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy 19

The Tigers pulled out to a 28-0 lead by halftime and cruised from there to a victory in a Div. V, Region 20 second-round playoff game on Saturday in Versailles.

Carson Bey scored on an 11-yard run and Landon Henry scored on a 10-yard run in the first quarter to help the team take a 14-0 lead. Jack Osborne then scored on a pair of 18-yard runs in the second quarter to boost the lead to 28 points.

After CHCA scored the first two TDs in the second half to close the gap to 28-13, Bey scored on a 38-yard run in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

Bey completed 2-of-4 passes for 14 yards and ran for 102 yards on 11 carries. Henry ran for 109 yards on 14 carries and Osborne ran for 75 yards on 12 carries.

It was the first game for Versailles since Oct. 2. The Tigers earned the No. 4 seed in Region 20 and earned a first-round bye, and Preble Shawnee forfeited a second-round playoff matchup due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

The Tigers (5-2) advance to face No. 1 seed Roger Bacon in a regional semifinal this Saturday in Cincinnati.

Frankfort Adena 28, Minster 0

The Wildcats couldn’t keep up with Adena and lost a Division VI, Region 24 second-round playoff game on Saturday in Frankfort.
