The Bobcats arguably had more to play for Tuesday, but the Golden Flashes went out strong in their final game this season. Ohio took a 6-3 lead, but Kent State outscored them in the final three quarters to win 44-13 at Peden Stadium.

Local players and Tri-Valley alums Nathan Strock, freshman quarterback for Kent State, and Matt Amicone, sophomore kicker for Ohio, were on the sidelines for their teams Tuesday.
