LCC wins this one 39-3

Bluffton unable to pull off upset against undefeated Lima Central Catholic, fall to .500
By Bryan Kress
Being down only 6-3 after the 1st quarter at home, maybe Bluffton could pull off the monumental upset with a freshman at quarterback.

This was not to be the case as the Bluffton offense, led by freshman Robbie Stratton in his 3rd start, could not score a point for the rest of the game. However, LCC could score more points, 33 more points in fact ending the night 39-3.
