WORTHINGTON — The Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets are on a roll.
So is Worthington Kilbourne.
The Jackets have to find a way to stop the Wolves’ grind-it-out attack and, offensively, put up enough points to overcome what would be their toughest test this year by far.
“Our practices look pretty good,” said Mount Vernon head coach Anthony Naples. “We’ve looked at the film. They (the Jacket players) know they’re going up against a really good team.”
Mount Vernon (3-1, 1-0 Ohio Capital Conference) had a successful start to the OCC portion of the schedule last week, cruising to a 37-15 victory over visiting Franklin Heights. The game, which was played over two days due to a lightning delay on Friday, saw the Jackets surge to three quick scores in the second half to take a 37-8 lead midway through the third quarter. J.D. Orr led the team with 204 yards on the ground, while quarterback Ryan Fitzgerald tacked on 129 more.
