Greeneview 37, Dayton Christian 0: Greeneview quarterback Chance Frye ran for a touchdown and threw for one, a 68-yard pass to Dalton Caudill.

Klay Partin had a 29-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter, then ran for a 75-yard touchdown in the fourth.

Ricky Mickel had a 33-yard field goal in the first quarter while Kyle Gilliam also rushed for a touchdown.

Tippecanoe 68, Graham 0: Tipp led 41-0 at halftime.

The Red Devils rushed for seven touchdowns — three by Jacob Hall and two by Cameron Johnson.

Triad 28, Indian Lake 7: Triad quarterback Trent McIntyre was 13-of-20 passing for 246 yards. Indian Lake’s Christian Grider was 17-of-29 for 223 yards and an interception.

Indian Lake led early after Grider threw a 27-yard touchdown pass to Chris Teague in the first quarter. Triad then rolled with 28 unanswered points, starting with McIntyre connecting with Doug Lowe for a 47-yard touchdown a minute later.

Lowe had six receptions for 165 yards. Lump Brennon had nine catches, 160 yards for Indian Lake.

Cedarville 26, Madison Plains 7: Caleb Coe led Cedarville, rushing 26 times for 140 yards. He rushed for two touchdowns and caught one for a touchdown. Adam Cain had 12 carries for 82 yards. He had nine tackles.
