It was a bleak week for most of Clermont County’s high school varsity football teams. Only Glen Este, Goshen, and Williamsburg emerged victorious.
Glen Este 31 Harrison 30 (overtime)
It took the Trojans (5-4 overall, 2-2 Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye) an incredibly exciting overtime period, but they won out over host Harrison 31-30.
The lead belonged to GE after the end of each of the first three quarters 14-0, 14-0, and 21-7 before a furious Wildcat rally ended regulation time at 24-all. Scoring for the Clermont countians was senior running back Ryan Lehr on a two-yard run, senior linebacker Tony Castellucio on a 33-yard return of a fumble recovery, and senior Jake Jones on a 39-yard field goal. The Purple and White’s senior wide receiver Tyler Shade drew first blood in the OT on a pass from sophomore quarterback Shane Seckman and Jones kicked the all-important point after. Harrison scored when it was their turn, but fumbled on the two-point conversion attempt.
