Fighting Tigers win 131st meeting versus Trojans


PORTSMOUTH — Ironton’s aerial attack was on display from play number one in their annual rivalry game versus Portsmouth — when senior wide receiver Ty Perkins claimed a one-handed pass from quarterback Tayden Carpenter to set up first and goal for the Fighting Tigers.

Ironton won the 131st meeting between themselves and Portsmouth on Friday 42-7 to complete a 10-0 regular season and win the 2022 Ohio Valley Conference championship.

Carptenter threw for six touchdown passes in the win — two to Perkins, two to Landen Wilson, and one touchdown toss to Braden Schreck and Aiden Young.

The Fighting Tigers gained 300 total yards of offense in the win on 36 plays, while holding Portsmouth to 182 yards on 60 plays.

Ironton also forced three Portsmouth turnovers in the week ten road win while committing none.

Portsmouth senior Brenden Truett ran in the Trojans’ lone touchdown, scoring from 10 yards out on a handoff by quarterback Tyler Duncan to cut their deficit to 35-7 with 8:08 remaining.

Both teams found out their postseason journey over the weekend with the release of the OHSAA Division V, Region 19 playoff matchups.
