Highland overcame a game Fredericktown squad on Friday to take a 36-25 road win.

Reese Weissenfluh connected with Tate Tobin for an 11-yard touchdown and Tobin added a two-point run to boost the Scots to an 8-6 lead after the first quarter. Jack Weaver tallied a pair of rushing touchdowns (seven and 17 yards) to push the Highland advantage to a 22-18 margin by the half. The team also got a two-point pass from Weissenfluh to Isaiah Stoneburner.

In the third quarter, the Scots went up 30-18 on a five-yard run by Brody Matthews and conversion run by Tobin. The Freddies got within a 30-25 margin late in the fourth quarter, but Highland finished the game with a 35-yard run by Tate Tobin to put six more points on the board.

Mount Gilead Indians

Mount Gilead fought back from a slow start, but could not quite catch up to host Centerburg in a 35-24 loss on Friday.

While Tim Brower scored on a 53-yard fumble recovery and Mason Mollohan received a two-point pass from Seth Young, the Indians still trailed 21-8 after the first quarter of play. Young would hit Mollohan for an 11-yard scoring pass in the second quarter to bring MG within a seven-point margin, which is how it would stay going into the final period.

In the fourth, Young would connect with Mollohan again, this time for a 53-yard scoring pass. Scott Page added the extra point to tie the game. However, the Trojans immediately responded with their second kickoff return for a score to regain the lead.

MG battled back to get a 27-yard field goal from Page and had the ball with the chance to go ahead, but Centerburg put an end to the scoring by returning an interception for a touchdown.

Young threw for 186 yards, with Mollohan catching five for 107 yards. The team also got 34 yards on the ground from Hunter Trimmer.
