FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Freddies did everything they needed to do on Friday night to keep their hopes alive to grab a piece of the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference, and maybe a little more.
They did it by taking apart the visiting Mount Gilead Indians, 56-18, and bettering their league record to 4-1. The win puts then in a second place tie with Highland, one game behind undefeated Centerburg in the MOAC Blue Division.
“This is the big win we have been looking for all year,” said Fredericktown coach Brian Baum. “Our boys play one of the toughest schedules in (Division VI) but we battled everyone this year.”
The Freddies got things going on the ground right away with running back Tyler Ruhl running through, over and around Mount Gilead defenders for 106 first-half yards. His back-to-back runs of 20 and 24 yards in the opening drive helped to set up the Freddies’ first score.
