Hunter Hogan had a strong night for Ravenna (1-1) on both sides of the ball. He scored on a 5-yard run then kicked the extra point. He finished the game with 100 yards rushing on 22 carries and both touchdowns for the Bulldogs. He also led the defense with nine tackles.

Montague’s lone touchdown came on a 27-yard pass from senior quarterback Chase Gowell to Owen Petersen. Petersen finished with five catches for 63 yards.

Adam Baird led Montague (1-1) in rushing with 15 carries for 78 yards. Michael Moore led the defense with five tackles.
