Muskingum Valley 35, Licking County 7

(ZANESVILLE) — Muskingum Valley scored early and often in the 30th edition of the Muskingum Valley-Licking County All-Star Game Friday night at Sulsberger Stadium.

Zanesville’s Talen Hutchison scored from five yards out early in the first quarter.  A C.J. Myers (Sheridan) strike to Casey Williams (Tri-Valley) set up the score.

30 seconds later, Myers helped his own cause, recovering a fumble by Licking County QB Cole Benner (Heath).  The result was a long drive, capped with a three yard TD run from Braily Blair (Zanesville).

Up 14-0 heading into the second, Myers busted the game wide open, scampering 58 yards for a touchdown.

Myers added a 40 yard run for a score in the third quarter.  Fellow General Troy Sweeney scored two minutes prior on an 11 yard run.

Licking County’s lone score came early in the fourth quarter when Newark Catholic’s Britt Wilder scored from a yard out.

The game was called short with 10 minutes left in the fourth due to lightning.
