WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Two 3-3 teams looked to move into a winning record with Youngstown East visiting Howland Friday night. It was Howland that moved to 4-3 with a 21-6 victory behind two Garrett Deemer touchdown runs.
After a scoreless first, Howland looked to be on the right track early in the second quarter. However, a 16 play drive that took nine minutes off of the clock stalled on the East 25 yard line and resulted in no points.
East was able to put the first points of the game on the board with just over three minutes remaining in the first half, a Maleek McIntosh 20 yard touchdown run. After a blocked PAT, East took a 6-0 lead.
The third quarter brought new results for the Howland offense.
Deemer scored from a yard out with 5:51 left in the third quarter to give the Tigers their first lead, 7-6.
A second Deemer one-yard score came just two minute later after Kyle Chopko recovered an East fumble on the East six yard line to extend the lead to 14-6.
William Hines ran in a score from 10 yards away with 9:42 left in the fourth quarter to give the Tigers a 21-6 lead which would ultimately stick.
