Scoring abounds in Goshen, Milford, NR, Burg wins

A lot of points were scored in Friday’s varsity football games, but unfortunately only four Clermont County squads were victorious.

Goshen (3-1) won a very important Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC) American Division game over defending champion Western Brown 27-21. The visiting Warriors were up 7-0 after one period, down 13-7 after two, and tied at 21 after three. John Strong scored twice for the triumphant driving in twice from the one-yard stripe, Nick Napier scored from 14 yards out and Billy Whitacre scored the winner on a 35-yard sprint. Reese kicked an extra and Whitacre dove for two.

“This was the biggest win for our program in the last couple of years,” said Goshen head coach Mark Slagle. “I couldn’t be more proud of them. They played their hearts out.”
