In the SID Game of the Week, Reading broke Wyoming's four game streak of giving up no points.  The Blue Devils scored 13, but could not hold the Cowboys down as they won 42-13.  Wyoming had six red zone touchdowns led by QB Andrew Marty who was 19 for 25 for 336 yards & 4 scores.  Jake Edmonds caught to TDs for 6 yards each.  Garyn Prater had a 4 yard score & Jack Gildea had a 5 yard reception.  Two Cowboy touchdowns were on the ground; Pierson Rogers for 3 yards & DeAndre Griffin for 3 yards.  Sergio Listo was 6 for6 in PAT kicks.  Reading's two TDs came on Tyler Bridges to Mancini Jackson for 27 & 7 yards.

Taylor and Madeira went back & forth.  Madeira scored first on a Kyle Johnson 1 yard run.  Chris Landgrebe PAT made it 7-0 Mustangs.  Taylor tied the game in the 2nd quarter on a Evan Lamb to Kenaz Moore for 10 yards.  Nathan Hellebush PAT tied it at 7 all after the 1st half.  In the 3rd quarter, Landgrebe made a 45 yard field goal to put Madeira back on top 10-7.  Adam Wieczorek caught a 56 yard score from Johnson.  The PAT failed making 16-7 Madeira.  Taylor scored again on  a Logan Workman 31 yard run.  Hellebush PAT made it 16-14 Mustangs.  Later in the quarter, Lamb found Moore for his 2nd TD pass of the game, this one for 57 yards. Lamb made a 2 point PAT and the Yellowjackets came from behind to win 22-16.

Mariemont put 35 points on the board in the 1st half to go to a 42-0 win over Finneytown.  Last week the Warriors could not get a touchdown in the red zone.  This week, they get six, all on the ground.  Alec Vianello had scoring runs of 3, 1, & 18 yards.  Vianello finished the night with 115 yards rushing.  Quarterback Wally Renie had 2 scoring runs for 4 yards & 1 yard.  Hayden Seeger score from 3 yards out.  Gunnar Nixon was 6 for 6 in PAT kicks.

We have two SID Games of the Week.  On Thursday, Indian Hill will be at Reading in a game that has play off implications.  Indian Hill clinched a spot in the playoffs and Reading still has mathematical chance.  It would take a lot of factors to go the right way for Blue Devils to get in, but a win against Indian Hill would be a big step.  The game is being broadcast by Time Warner Cable.
The second game of the week is Madeira at Mariemont, another game with playoff implications.  Both teams are on the outside looking in.  The winner could get enough points to sneak in.  Division V Madeira would get more quality points for a win over Division IV Mariemont.
Wyoming will be at Deer Park.  A Cowboy win, would give them the league title outright.
Finneytown will be at Taylor.  The Yellowjackets are looking to close out the season with three straight wins.


Wyoming finished 14-0 in the league to secure their 7th straight title.  The Cowboys have won 98 league matches in a row dating back to 2009.
