(January 24th, 2015) – MONTPELIER: In a rematch from each team’s season opening game, Montpelier’s Junior Varsity squad once again did battle with its Buckeye Border Conference neighbor, Edon. This time, the Bombers took off for Montpelier, playing on the road against their North Western Ohio Athletic League opponent.
The results were similar to the first meeting between the two units, as the Locos took down the Edon boys 40-18.
The Locomotives set the tone for the contest early on, steamrolling their way through the first quarter with a 14-1 lead to show for it. The second period was a much closer affair, but Montpelier was still able to build on their lead by coming out on the better end of a 10-5 exchange. At the half, the Loco boys commanded a 24-6 advantage.
Edon just couldn’t find a way to climb back into the game. Coming out of the locker room, the Bomber boys were again met with the strong defensive presence of Montpelier. They were outscored 8-2 in the third period. Finally, in the fourth quarter, Edon found their offense. It was too late, however, as their 10-8 advantage in the period was not enough to make up the difference on the scoreboard.
