LUCASVILLE — Lucasville was the site of an offensive explosion on Friday.
The visiting Piketon Redstreaks scored 62 points on just 33 plays from scrimmage in their 62-36 win over the host Indians, improving their start to the 2021 season to 3-0 — the program’s first time winning its first three games of the season since 2005.
Friday’s game was Valley’s (1-2) third straight against a Division V opponent, as nine of its 10 games this season are against D-V teams or higher.
Piketon quarterback Levi Gullion accounted for all eight touchdowns in the win — four through the air to Redstreak receivers and another four on the ground.
Valley’s rushing attack played a part in each of its scores on Friday, as senior Chase Morrow and juniors George Arnett and Carter Nickel combined to rush for 227 yards on 44 carries and five total touchdowns.
Morrow was the leading ballcarrier, rushing for 87 yards on 16 carries and a pair of scores.
Piketon receiver Camren Loar had five receptions for 140 yards, and hauled in three of Gullion’s four touchdown tosses.
Valley will travel to Eastern Pike (1-1) on Friday, seeking a bounce-back win before a road trip to Roy Rogers Field to face Northwest in week five.
Piketon will begin Scioto Valley Conference play this Friday, when it will host Zane Trace (2-1).
