Shawnee blitzes Bellefontaine, boosts playoff hopes


Shawnee’s playoff hopes got a big boost Friday night with a 34-0 victory over Bellefontaine.

The Braves (5-4, 1-2 Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division) entered Friday’s game rated No. 9 in Division IV Region 16. Bellefontaine (6-3) is a Division III school. The Braves close the season at home next Friday against Jonathan Alder (6-3), a 27-0 winner over Tecumseh on Friday. Alder entered the week at No. 10 in Region 16.

After consecutive losses to Tecumseh, Urbana and Kenton Ridge, the Braves dominated the first half with 34 points to stun the Chieftains and send them to their first conference loss.

Braves quarterback Robie Glass passed for 134 yards on 5-of-7 passing and rushed for 106 yards on 21 carries, and Michael Guyer rushed for three touchdowns. Glass’ two-yard touchdown run and Guyer’s one-yard scored staked the Braves to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.

The onslaught continued in the first minute of the second quarter when Glass threw a 54-yard touchdown pass to Drew Mitch. Guyer added touchdown runs of seven and four yards, the last coming with 36 seconds left in the half.

Guyer rushed for 83 yards on 13 carries. Mitch caught four passes for 131 yards.

The Braves outgained the Chieftains 365-161 and had an 11-minute advantage in time of possession.

Bellefontaine quarterback Grant Smith completed 7 of 18 passes for 73 yards. Garrett Gross, who rushed for 916 yards through eight games, did not have a carry.
