MANSFIELD - Upper Sandusky shut down Ontario in the second half and Tylor Pritchard figured in three scores Friday as the Rams rallied for an 18-14 North Central Conference win.
The Rams trailed 14-12 at halftime in a back-and-forth game.
Tristan Reichelderfer hauled in a 28-yard Pritchard TD pass midway through the first quarter to put Upper Sandusky up 6-0, but the Warriors countered with Jordan Campbell's 85-yard kickoff scamper moments later for a score.
Mitchell Phelps added a PAT boot to give Ontario a 7-6 edge with 6:35 left in the opening period, then kicked another with 3:38 left in the half after Cameron Mack's 51-yard jaunt to push the lead to 14-6.
However, Pritchard found Donald Barth for an 11-yard TD pass with 45 seconds left in the half to make it a two-point game before putting the Rams on top for good with a 5-yard run with 7:20 to go in the game.
Pritchard ran 34 times for 158 yards and went 8 of 18 for 119 yards through the air. Barth caught four passes for 75 yards.
Campbell's 59 yards on 20 carries led Ontario. Tyler Boatwright went 7 of 16 for 68 passing yards.
Big return helps Falcons clip Bucks
NEW WASHINGTON - Michael Adkins plowed in from 3 yards out to break a fourth-quarter tie, but Riverdale's Trey Headington stole the momentum back moments later with a 70-yard kickoff rumble for a score as the Falcons nipped Buckeye Central 21-20 in North Central Conference play.
Grant Loveridge booted his third PAT after Headington's touchdown return to put Riverdale ahead for good.
Headington put the Falcons on the board first by hauling in Dillon Farrow's 14-yard TD pass on the way to a 7-0 lead, but the Bucks got a 61-yard Kameron Jones scoring pass to Austin McDonnell later in the opening period to cut the gap to 7-6.
Farrow bulled in from a yard out in the second quarter to push Riverdale's lead to 14-6, but Jones found Nick McCoy for a 10-yard TD before also throwing a conversion pass to knot the score.
Farrow went 6 of 8 for 59 passing yards, while Josh Bushong ran 16 times for 51 yards for the Falcons.
Adkins led the Bucks with 80 yards on 15 carries, and Jones went 9 of 19 for 161 yards passing. McDonnell caught four passes for 98 yards.
