Lisbon offense rolls in opener

The Blue Devils routed Tuscarawas Central Catholic with nearly 500 yards of total offense.

Dover, OH (WYTV) – The Lisbon football team put up six touchdowns in the first half and rolled to a 54-0 win over Tuscarawas Central Catholic Saturday at Crater Stadium.

Senior quarterback Josh Liberati found Colin Sweeney for a 6 yard touchdown in the first quarter to put the Devils on the board. A few minutes later, Lisbon drove the field again, capped off by a Liberati two yard touchdown run. Danny Shultz would polish off another scoring drive from 7 yards out to make it 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.

The Lisbon defense was stout all night, with four interceptions that preserved the shutout. The Saints gained just 86 yards through the air, and 31 yards on the ground.

Junior running back Jason Thompson ran for 146 yards, along with two touchdowns, both in the 2nd quarter. Shultz racked up 95 yards on 9 carries with 2 scores. The Devils finished with 405 yards rushing and 88 yards through the air.

Frankie Morrell and Dougie Minor scored the final two touchdowns for the Blue Devils, who move to 1-0 on the season and host Mineral Ridge next week.
