Photo by Dave Fredrick No one ever said it would be easy, but the Ubly Bearcats keep finding ways to win. Last Friday night was a good example.

Ubly moved to 2-0 on the season and 1-0 in conference play after rallying with a 22-point second quarter to nip a pesky Sandusky squad 30-28.

Despite their defense allowing over 180 yards through the air, Ubly had just enough offense and took advantage of Sandusky turnovers to nail down the win.

Three straight second quarter scoring drives - of 80, 57 and 48 yards, gave Ubly the boost they needed. Tyler Peruski punched it in from three yards out for the Bearcats first score and later added a 37-yard scamper.

Ubly quarterback Austin Drake connected with Peruski on a 40-yard TD with just over a minute to go before the half to complete the dramatic rally and deflate the Redskins.

Ubly’s ground game, led by Bryan Nash and others, was clicking on all cylinders, grinding out over 350 yards of offense in their come-from-behind win over Sandusky in GTC action last week.

Bret Cleary led the Ubly ground game with 177 yards rushing while Peruski amassed 90 yards and Nash had 60. The Bearcats had over 340 yards of offense.

USA 27 BC All-Saints 12

A 14-point second quarter sparked the Patriots to their first win of the season last week.

Having fought to a 0-0 tie in the opening period, USA scored two TDs in the second quarter and added one each in the third and fourth quarters to nail down the win.

Brandon Harper led USA with 106 yards on 15 carries, Tim Canfield (three touchdowns) rushed for 93 yards and Tyler Dick added 68 yards and a touchdown.

Dakota Gangler had another strong peformance on defense for USA, with right tackles while Canfield and Joe Sigmund had seven apiece.

Harbor Beach 34 North Huron 14

The Pirates got off to a slow start against the Warriors but found their scoring touch in the second half to roll to the nonconference win.

It was North Huron that struck first in a match-up that had not been played since the 1960s when QB Erik Dhyse hooked up with his favorite target, Kevin Rice on a nice 70-yard scoring strike in the first quarter.

The Pirates responded with a one-yard score by Brian Dekoski and a 17- yard score from HB quarterback Sean Sorenson to Justin Pfaff.

Dekoski opened the second half with a 52 yard race to the endzone and after a Ryan Maurer PAT, ‘Beach was on top 20-7.

Sorenson helped put the game away for the Pirates with a 32-yard scoring toss to Tom Sutherland.

Dhyse finished the game with 152 yards passing and two TDs with Rice hauling in 128 of those yards.

“I can’t say enough about Dhyse,” said Warrior coach Travis Fischer. “He’s been playing the last two weeks with a mildly separated throwing shoulder. That kid is the true definition of a warrior.”
