FAIRBORN — Sidney spotted Fairborn a 7-0 lead, but dominated from there in winning its third in a row Friday night in high school football action at Fairborn.

The score was 47-33 with 1:30 left in the game.

Sidney gave up a 78-yard scoring drive to start the game and fell behind 7-0, but the Jacket offense responded, and got on the board when sophomore running back Isaiah Bowser bolted 31 yards for a touchdown. The point-after was wide and the Jackets trailed 7-6.

The defense forced a punt and Sidney took over inside Fairborn territory. Bowser carried down to the 32 but a holding penalty backed the Jackets up. However, freshman quarterback Andre Gordon completed two passes to get the Jackets deep into Fairborn territory, and a few plays later Bowser went in from four yards out for a 13-7 lead.

Sidney got an interception from Darryl McNeal, returned to the Fairborn 44 in the second quarter, but the Jackets fumbled the ball away on the very next play. However, the Jacket defense held again and Sidney took over on its own 40.

After a couple of runs and a couple of screen passes, Gordon broke one from 30 yards out to give the Jackets a 20-7 lead with 4:41 left in the first half.

The Jackets then struck from long range after Josiah Hudgins picked off a pass and gave his team the ball at their own 27. On the very first play, Andre Gordon hit brother Allec for a 73-yard touchdown with just 2:43 left in the half. The extra-point kick gave the Jackets a 26-7 lead, and that’s how the half ended.

A fumble early in the third quarter gave Fairborn a golden opportunity, but Sidney held and blocked a field goal. The Jackets then went the other way and got a 13-yard touchdown run from Conor Beer to make it 33-7.

After Fairborn scored to make it 33-13, the Jackets responded with a good drive, capped off by a Gordon-to-Gordon TD pass of 17 yards on fourth down for a 40-13 bulge after three quarters.

The two teams traded scored in the final period, Sidney’s coming from Beer again, this time on a 29-yard run with 6:00 to play to make it 47-20. However, Fairborn returned the ensuing kick 93 yards for a score.

Riverside keeps

Redskins winless

FORT LORAMIE – Fort Loramie appeared to have things going its way in the early going, but Riverside survived and went on to hand the Redskins their fourth straight setback Friday night, 28-7.

Loramie falls to 0-1 in the Northwest Central Conference. Riverside is 1-0 and 4-0.

Loramie used direct snaps to running backs much of the game after losing quarterback Austin Siegel. He’s out for the season with a knee injury.

Loramie drove to the Riverside three but turned the ball over on downs. Riverside was then forced to put from the back of the endzone after being unable to move and Loramie set up shop at the Pirate 25.

But Riverside’s Shawn Crawford picked off a pass and returned it 90 yards to make it 7-0.

Not lot after, Hayden Robinson broke loose from 35 yards to make it 13-0 at the half, then Connor Cotterman ran in from 15 yards out and Robinson added a two-point conversion to make it 21-0 with 4:28 left in the third quarter.

In the final period, Riverside got a pass interference on fourth-and-15 at the Loramie 20, and two plays later Joey Kaeck went in from one yard out to make it 28-0.

Loramie got on the board in the final period when lineman Frank Meyer fell on a fumble in the endzone.
