Logan Rushing Attack Leads Chieftains to Win Over Chillicothe

Meanwhile, Chillicothe got little going in the first half with a three and out, a turnover, and a drive to the Logan 30. Logan produced touchdown drives of 50 and 30 yards as McCarty scored two TD’s to put Logan up 12-0 at the half.

Chillicothe drove 77 yards for an opening second half score as Benson ran in from 8 yards out, after a big pass play to Courtland Duncan. When the Cavs stopped Logan on their next series it looked like a possible homecoming victory.

Logan forced a stop and marched 52 yards with McCarty scoring his third touchdown of the night with seven minutes remaining in the game to put away their first win of the season.
