The only thing that could stop the offenses in the Crosstown Showdown tilt between the Madeira Mustangs and Norwood Indians on Thursday night at UC’s Sheakley Athletics Center was the clock hitting zeroes.
Madeira (1-0) rallied from a three-score deficit and took the lead for good with just three minutes left in the game as senior quarterback Matthew Ballweg connected with Nicholas Cedillo on a 62-yard TD pass. It was one of three TD passes on the night by Ballweg, who finished with 290 yards through the air. He also rushed for a score in the win.
It looked as if Norwood (0-1) was going to tie the game in the final minutes, but running back Armani Lee lost control of the football crossing the goal line with 1:44 on the clock turning what should have been a touchdown into a turnover.
Senior Andrew Conover threw for 152 yards and a touchdown and picked up another 139 yards and a score on the ground in a loss for the Indians.
Madeira will look to make it two in a row next week when the pay a visit to Clermont Northeastern. Norwood returns to the Skeakley Center for a matchup with Purcell-Marian.
