MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio – Mount Healthy intercepted three passes resulting in 14 early points in the Owls’ 20-7 win over Glen Este at the Owls Nest on Friday.

Mount Healthy’s Jordan Lackey intercepted Trojans sophomore quarterback Tyler Pilcher deep in Owls territory.

Mount Healthy capitalized, as speedy running back Hjavier Pitts took the ball outside for a 94-yard touchdown run to make it 7-0.

Soon after, Pilcher threw his second pick to Jordan Lackey’s twin brother, Justin. Mount Healthy sophomore quarterback David Montgomery would lead the offense straight down the field and cap off the drive with a two-yard TD run.

With just under four minutes remaining in the first half, Glen Este recovered a muffed punt by Pitts in Mount Healthy territory. Running back Jordan Harris, who was the workhorse for Glen Este, led the team to its first touchdown just before halftime.

But the Trojans would pull no closer, as the Mount Healthy defense controlled the second half, led by Jordan and Justin Lackey.

The score remained 14-7 for the majority of the second half until Montgomery ran in his second touchdown from 13 yards out to give Mount Healthy a 13-point lead after a missed extra point.

With a few minutes left in the final quarter, it looked like Glen Este started to drive, but the Trojans’ hopes were dashed when Mount Healthy Donyel Dennis intercepted a pass to seal the win for the Owls.
