BROOKVILLE — Quarterback Bobby McGranor ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to lead the Brookville Raiders to a 28-20 win over Union Friday night.

After the Raiders were able to withstand five straight Union trips into the Red Zone (Raiders’ 20 or inside) and give up just eight points — two turnovers and two drives stopped on downs — they were able to climb back into the game and went ahead for good with a 21-point third quarter.

McGranor scored on runs of 5 and 2 yards, the first coming with 12.3 seconds left in the first half and the second putting the Raiders up 15-7 with 57 seconds left in the third quarter. McGranor found Brandon Bietz on a 45-yard TD pass less than 33 seconds later to put the Raiders up 28-14.

Jonah Sampson rushed for 84 yards on 20 carries and scored the Raiders’ other touchdown on a 10-yard run.

Union lost quarterback Lane Cicciarelli to an injury on the first drive of the second half. He threw an 11-yard TD pass to Chet Carmichael for the game’s first points with 7:29 left in the second quarter. Cole Morris replaced Cicciarelli and raced 60 yards for a touchdown with 42.5 seconds left in the third quarter. Then in the fourth, he hit Wiser on a 53-yard scoring strike that wound up setting the final score.

Cicciarelli completed 4 of 10 passes for 79 yards with three interceptions while Morris was 3-for-11 for 81 yards to go along with 104 yards rushing on eight carries. Wiser caught two passes for 89 yards.

Both teams turned the ball over four times with Union edging Brookville in yardage, 285-283.


RIDGWAY — Ben MacDonald ran for two touchdowns and took an interception back for a third to key Ridgway’s 35-point first half.

The Elkers scored 21 points in the first quarter on Luke Pierce’s nine-yard touchdown run and Cole Myers’ 10-yard scored, followed by a 58-yarder from MacDonald.

MacDonald added a 19-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter and Dane Cappiello capped the Elkers’ scoring with an 85-yard kickoff return in the third quarter.
