Mount Carmel Fire posts first gridiron victory

The Mount Carmel Fire won its first game in the two-month history of the franchise by knocking off the visiting Northwest Ohio Raiders 23-16 in a very hard-fought confrontation.

The game was played on Saturday night July 14, on the Anderson High School football field.

This showdown was a non-conference encounter.

The Fire is a member of the United States Football Alliance and its Western Football Conference’s Southern Division.

The Clermont County contingent spotted the Toledo invaders an 8-7 first quarter advantage, but the Fire took over for a 20-16 lead at the conclusion of the first half and the termination of the third quarter.
