FOREST PARK, Ohio – Elder held Winton Woods, which was without its starting quarterback, to 192 yards of offense in the Panthers’ 23-19 win at Charlie Fredrick Stadium on Friday.
Elder was first to score this evening with a field goal in the first quarter by Matt Murray. Winton Woods ended the first quarter with a touchdown by Lionell McConnell.
Next to score for Elder was Chris Schroer with a 5-yard touchdown, putting the Panthers ahead, 9-7.
Right before going into halftime, Devin Pike for Elder scored on a 22-yard TD pass from Peyton Ramsey, making it 16-7.
The Warriors trimmed the lead to three with a 7-yard TD run by Mike Edwards late in the third quarter, but Ramsey, the sophomore QB who has passed for over 1,000 yards on the season, ran in a 67-yard touchdown to make it 23-13.
Ramsey was 9-for-15 on passing for 107 yards.
Winton Woods’ Christian Lumpkin recovered a fumble in the end zone late, but the Warriors could not pull closer. Lumpkin filled in under center for Shemar Hooks, who has a broken hand.
“I knew this was going to be a struggle, defensively they’re really good,” Elder coach Doug Ramsey said. “They’re one of the best team we’ve played – the second best defensively we’ve played.”
Elder now has a playoff spot.
“Next week we gotta play well to get that home advantage,” Peyton Ramsey said.
