In its week one win over Copley, Twinsburg football put up some scary offensive numbers.
But could the Tigers repeat the feat when they travelled to rival Solon Friday? The answer turned out to be a resounding "No."
Solon ran away with a 38-0 win Friday at Stewart Field, as the Comets limited Twinsburg to just 37 yards of total offense.
Khalil Eichelberger did most of the damage for Solon, as he finished with 132 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Solon quarterback Pat McQuade went 11-of-15 for 95 yards and two touchdowns, as Solon finished with 330 total yards.
About the only thing that didn’t go right for the Comets was the kicking game, as Solon missed three extra points and failed to convert a two-point conversion.
A week after nearly putting up 500 yards of total offense, Twinsburg quarterback Adam Van de Motter was held to 6-of-14 for 35 yards passing with one interception. Jameel Banks led Twinsburg’s rushing attack with three carries for 26 yards.
Twinsburg will look to rebound next Friday at home against another backyard rival, as Aurora will visit Tiger Stadium. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
