The Kenston Bombers shocked the top-ranked Tallmadge Blue Devils 26 to 23 to advance to round two in the Region 5 playoffs. Kenston's quarterback Daryll Richards had an all-star night with two touchdown bombs. He threw one for 74 yards and another for 60 yards. Richards also ran for two touchdowns. The game changing play came from Kenston’s defense. They ripped the ball from Tallmadge running back Johnny Linn on their own two-yard line stopping the go-ahead touchdown.
The Blue Devils had four fumbles on the night but despite the fumbles the game still came down to a final Blue Devils drive. Tallmadge quarterback Anthony Gotto desperately tried to complete his third touchdown pass of the game to take the lead but the defense wouldn't allow it. Kenston faces the Chardon Hilltoppers Nov. 9 at 7:30 pm. Allie LaForce has all the high flying highlights. For more Friday Night Touchdown action click here!
