Central Academy was able muster one last chance after getting a return just past midfield with a minute and 21 seconds left to play, but the Cougars could not convert the 4th down like Parkwood was able to. The Cougars led the Rebels 12-0 lead before Parkwood got on the board after a 35-yard touchdown pass from Josh Coble to Max Robinson. Central Academy answered that score on Quay Threatt’s second touchdown of the night. It was a 74-yard touchdown catch and gave the Cougars a 18-7 lead at the half. Parkwood scored on the first play of the fourth quarter as Josh Coble would find Nick Stitt for a 45 yard touchdown that pulled the Rebels within 18-13. Stitt finished the night with six catches for 70 yards and Robinson had five catches for 127 yards. Central Academy held the Rebels’ running game to 46 yards on 33 carries. Along with Threatt’s two touchdown catches, senior Deshawn Morrison added a touchdown for the Cougars. Parkwood started to roll off wins late last season and took the streak all the way to the state semifinals and falling to Monroe.

Down 7-0, Rebels junior Tre Butler evened the score for Parkwood with a 74-yard run. Butler also had an 80-yard TD run, cutting the lead to 15-13, but it was all Tigers after that. The Rebels started the season 5-2 after 7 weeks but have lost 3 games in a row and now are 5-5 overall and 1-3 in the Rocky River Conference. The win gives the Tigers at least a share of their first conference title since 2007, and only their second title since 1982. Mount Pleasant running back Cody Reece led the Tigers with game high 276 yards rushing and four touchdowns. The Rebels travel to Central Academy on Friday.

The Rebels (5-4, 1-2 RRC) opened the game with the ball and had great field position after a 38-yard pass from Josh Coble to Max Robinson to the Monroe 31. The Redhawks made a stand, though, and took the ball over on downs. Parkwood junior running back Tre Butler put on a show on the Rebels’ second drive with carries of 32, 22 and 24 yards to set up a one-yard touchdown run by Coble. Butler tied the game with a 2-point run . Monroe’s defense broke the game open when cornerback Tyree Cureton snagged a backward pass on the run and raced 34 yards for a touchdown. Butler was a bright spot for the Rebels as he rushed for 124 yards on 23 carries, including a one-yard touchdown run on the Rebels’ final possession. The Rebels will host 1st place Mt. Pleasant on Friday Oct 31st.

Senior running back CJ Carelock ran for a season-high 173 yards and two touchdowns on just 12 carries to help the Yellow Jackets rally for a 35-14 road win over Parkwood on Friday. Carelock had seven rushes that went for 10 yards or more, including a 35-yard scoring scamper in the third quarter that saw the bruiser break several tackles on his way to the end zone. Carelock then added a 45-yard touchdown run down the left sideline with 7:26 left in the fourth to give his team a 28-14 advantage. Parkwood scored both of its touchdowns in the second quarter on a one-yard run by sophomore Savonte Drakeford and a 26-yard pass from senior QB Josh Coble to senior receiver Max Robinson. The Rebels (5-3, 1-1 RRC) played without leading rusher Tre Butler (584 yards, 7 TDs) and junior defensive end Drew Hause, who has a team-high eight sacks. Parkwood senior Jorge Martinez had a season-high 79 rushing yards on 13 carries. He had two runs that went for 20 yards. The Rebels will look to avenge their playoff loss to Monroe last year as they head to Monroe Friday October 24th.

An offensive tackle who started 13 games for the Rebels' 2AA state semifinal team last year, Giarla is still receiving treatment after being diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer last May, but he's been cleared by doctors to play football again. He's been practicing with the Rebels for two weeks, but Thursday's home game against Jordan-Matthews will be his first live action of 2014. Giarla, who wears No. 71, has been through brain surgery, six weeks of chemotherapy and another six weeks of radiation, according to his Dad, Rick Giarla. He's currently in a chemo regiment that includes five days on and 23 days off, and that will last for a year. STAY STRONG ANDY!!!
