SYCAMORE TWP., Ohio – The Sycamore and Middletown offenses had to battle more than just the opposition if they wanted to find the end zone on Friday.
But the weather did not impede Aviators senior quarterback Greg Simpson, who led Sycamore to a 33-5 win over Middletown at Bud Acus Alumni Field on Friday.
Conditions were extremely difficult to play in due to heavy rain that fell throughout the entire game.
Simpson ran for a 66-yard touchdown early in the first quarter to put the Aviators up 6-0.
After the Middies and Aviators exchanged punts, Simpson found the end zone again from 19 yards out at the end of the first quarter.
But the Middies’ offense wasted no time putting together a 55-yard drive to open the second quarter, capped off by a 30-yard field goal by junior kicker Zach Green.
The rain that contributed to a botched snap by the Sycamore special teams, which bounced out of the back end of the end zone for a safety that made it 13-5 at halftime
Sycamore senior running back Solomon McMullen tacked on two quick touchdown runs to close the third quarter and open the fourth, increasing the Aviators’ lead to 22 points.
Senior running back Alex Tillman had the final say in this match-up as he took off on a 25-yard touchdown run to sealing the Sycamore victory. Tillman was also responsible for 119 of the Aviator's 357 rushing yards on the night.
Because of the relentless rain, the teams combined for just 24 passing yards. - See more at: http://tristatefootball.com/Articles.asp?ArticleID=5160#sthash.tyOK0TES.dpuf
