It was a great start to the 2018 season as Massillon scored big wins over Akron St. Vincent’s varsity, junior varsity and freshmen squads.
The varsity team bested the Irish 35-7, turning in one of the best defensive performances by a Tiger team in many years. This coming against a state-ranked opponent that returned a boatload of starters from the previous year. Stellar running back Terrence Keyes, who rushed for 202 last year, was held to just 10 yards on 11 carries.
The junior varsity team defeated St. V, 35-13. Sophomore quarterback Zach Catrone connected on four touchdown passes, two to Andrew Wilson-Lamp and one each to Heath Manson and TJ Williams. Eric Thurman punctuated the scoring by returning a punt for a touchdown.
The freshmen team defeated the Irish, 19-13.
