Austintown Fitch 14 - Hoover 7

Game Summary

An 11-yard run by Fitch quarterback Matt Futkos in the third quarter proved to be the deciding touchdown as the Falcons earned a 14-7 victory over Hoover.

​Hoover’s final scoring opportunity came with two minutes left in the game, but quarterback Austin Appleby lobbed a desperation throw out of the back of the end zone as he scrambled from the Fitch defense on fourth-and-goal.

​Despite outgaining Fitch, not turning the ball over and only punting once on the night, Hoover’s only touchdown came on Justin Smith’s 1-yard run. 

​Appleby completed 17 of 42 passes for 284 yards. Branden Race caught four passes for 107 yards and Austin Feinberg had five catches for 93 yards.
