Butler Dominates Arrows 52-0 It was a rough week two for the Tecumseh football team, as they not only saw their game postponed at Butler until Saturday due to the weather, but when they did play, it was a rough four quarters for the Arrows.

The Arrows fumbled their opening possession which led to a 10-yard scoring run from Nic Martin, setting the tone for a 52-0 Butler win against the Arrows.

Tyler Burrows added another touchdown three minutes later, giving the Aviators a 16-0 lead, which is how they ended the first period.

It got much worse, as Butler increased their lead to 38-0 at the half.

Tecumseh comes back Friday night in their home opener against Bellbrook, kickoff set for 7:30.

Bethel Football The Bees scored 21 points in the first five minutes of the game, en route to an easy 42-2 rout of Mississinawa Valley in a game that was moved to Saturday night due to the weather on Friday. After making the long drive to Union City, the Bees didn’t take long to set the tone.

Jacob Evans scored in the first minutes of the game, giving the Bees a 7-0 lead quickly. Noah Burrows and Ian Anderson also added touchdowns in the opening quarter to lead 21-0 just five minutes into the game.

“That definitely got us off to a fast start,” said Bethel coach Scott Clodfelter.

Josh Wills Matt First and Anderson scored the remaining touchdowns for Bethel, as they led 28-0 at the half.

Wills led the Bees with 189 yards rushing, part of 437 yards on the ground for the Bees. Evans and Anderson each added 78 yards, and Burrows ran for 47.

“One of our goals was to get off to a good start,” Clodfelter added. “I thought we played consistently today, and were consistent with our effort moving the ball. 437 yards on the ground is pretty good, we just need to stat consistent on getting the ball into the endzone.”

“Our defense played outstanding, our coaching staff really challenged them this week. We didn’t play well defensively last week, and we came out and played well in this game. We really improved between week one and two as far as details to win.”

Bethel returns to the field Friday night against Dayton Christian at 7:30. The game will be played at West Carrollton Middle School.
