On the opening drive the ‘Burg looses the handle, the fumble is recovered by Centerville sophmore Baylor Stickeyl but the Elks were unable to take advantage of the good field position after a missed field goal.
The Vikings next possession netted a better result, Justin Barry dumps the screen pass to Jackson McGohan. The junior slips a couple of tackles and carries it into the redzone before being knocked out at the ten.
A few plays later, third and goal at the five, Barry with the high toss where only McGohan can get it and Miamisburg grabs the 7-0 lead.

The Vikings try to answer, on the reverse Drew Copsey finds running room and picks up nice yards on the carry, but his drive will stall for Coach Lance Schneider’s team.
With the first half winding down, Harrison rolls out and connects with Cameron Smith — the senior receiver puts out a nice spin move and a solid stiff arm before being run out of bounds.
