YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Girard’s offense got rolling early and never stopped as they pilled on points in a 49-7 road win over their archrival Liberty in “The Battle of Belmont”.
One of Girard’s key components of offense was fullback Ahmad Curd who carried it in for four touchdowns.
Curd opened up strong on the game’s first drive as he carried it in untouched for an easy Indians’ touchdown. It was quickly followed up by quarterback Tuff McConahy finding Domenico Simone for another Girard touchdown late in the first to put the Indians up 14-0.
Liberty would find the scoreboard once, early in the second quarter, as Dwyane Moody caught a 75-yard touchdown reception for the Leopards.
Girard, after giving up seven, couldn’t be stopped as the Indians responded with three consecutive touchdowns, two from Curd, and Simone’s second one of the night, to put them up 35-7 heading into the half.
Girard would go on to pick up right where they left off in the first half. Simone intercepted the ball on the Leopard’s first drive of the third quarter, and Curd finished off the drive and carried it in for his fourth and final touchdown of the night.
Will Hynes chipped in a 28-yard touchdown for Girard to put them up by 42 forcing a running clock in the third.
