FREDERICKTOWN — After two heartbreaking losses, the Fredericktown football team broke through this past week with a victory over Utica.
Now, the Freddies are hoping to continue that good vibe as they enter play for the first time in the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference. The Freddies will host Cardington on Friday at 7 p.m.
“Getting that first win is always important,” said Fredericktown coach Brian Baum. “We lost a couple of heartbreakers. We played well, just not well enough to win. It’s good to get that first win and lift things off your shoulders.”
The Freddies (1-2) will see a similar style of offense from the Pirates as they have throughout most of the non-conference schedule. The Pirates (0-3) run a spread offense and are led by senior quarterback Noah Zierden. They look to senior running back Devin Brooks to carry the load, while Dustin Blanton and Thomas Jordan will try to open things up outside at receiver.
