Lebanon dismantles host Greenfield-Central 34-14

Greenfield — For the first time since 2005 and just the second since 1998, the Lebanon Tiger football team is off to a 2-0 start.

The Tigers earned their second victory with a dismantling of the Greenfield-Central Cougars 34-14.

Despite giving up a 50-yard kick return to open the game, a quick fumble recovery by safety Ryan Reese got the momentum rolling for the Tigers early  in the first quarter.

Then, from his own 20, quarterback Isaac Harker engineered a 7-play, 80-yard drive that perfectly blended the pass with the run to give the Tigers a 7-0 advantage.

The touchdown came on an option to the right as Harker pitched to wingback Caleb Brannon who cut back to the inside, picking up a block from Colton Ranney, before taking it in for the 17-yard score.

Jake Wetzel tacked on the extra point as the Tigers jumped out to the early 7-0 lead just four minutes into the game.

“We keep talking about making the first punch,” Lebanon head coach Kent Wright said. “But I’m proud of the way we fought back and gave some body blows of our own.”

After trading punts Lebanon had gained the edge in the battle for field position and set up shop for its third possession on the Cougar 46 yardline.

From there it was a quick 5-play drive, all on the ground as Collin Campbell did the honors taking it in from eight yards out.

It was a shorter version of the Tigers first score as Campbell took the option pitch around the right side, before cutting back up the middle for the touchdown making it 14-0 just seconds into the second quarter.
