RB Aregeros Turner Wouldn’t Be Stopped as Copley Tops Orrville

I thought if Aregeros Turner had a big game this week, then his Copley Indians would win. He did just that and that is what exactly what happened when the Indians defeated the Orrville Red Riders 34-28. Turner totaled 275 yards of total offense and added four of his team’s five touchdowns.

Turner got the game going when he caught a 62 yard touchdown reception from quarterback John Kromalic. Turner then added his first rushing touchdown of the night. They did miss an extra point and the score at the end of the first quarter was 13-0.

Turner scored again in the second when he took another rush in from 23 yards out. The defense of the Indians got in on the action was well when their cornerback Johnny Karam picked off a pass deep in the Red Riders’ zone and took it in for a 12 yard return. The score at the half was 28-7.

Turner added another touchdown and that extra point was no good, making the score 34-7. Orrville looked like they were out of the game at the end of the third. They had different plans in the final quarter.

The fourth quarter saw the Red Riders’ quarterback Kyle Lichti throw three touchdown passes, pulling his team to 34-28. They wouldn’t get the ball back again, though when the onside kick failed, giving the Indians the victory.

Turner had a game like I thought he would. He rushed for 213 yards, which has been his highest total in a game this season. He also added three rushing touchdowns. He also got involved in the passing game again, something he didn’t do last week, when he gained 65 yards receiving and a touchdown. If he can continue to do this, then I believe his team will continue to roll.

Another thing that I noticed about this team is their defense. They did give up a lot of points in the fourth quarter. When you are up like they were I understand it can be difficult to stay up. I do think they will need to tighten up going forward. What I did like was that they were causing turnovers, which in turn have equaled direct points. If they can continue to do that, this team will continue to win.

Copley is now 3-0 and will open up conference play at home against 2-1 Tallmadge Blue Devils. Tallmadge played at home against the Garfield Rams and defeated them 26-0.

Orrville drops to 1-2 and will begin conference play on the road against the 2-1 Lexington Minutemen. The Minutemen played at the Olentangy Braves and were defeated 35-21.
