GlenOak vs. Garfield

Posted Sep 7, 2005

At least three big-time Division I recruits were in action at Fawcett Stadium when Canton GlenOak hosted Akron Garfield. Chris Wells from Garfield, already headed to Ohio State, had a monster game with 25 carries for 263 yards and 5 touchdowns. Wells looked like a completely different player from the week before. Mike Hartline led GlenOak to the win with his arm and legs by passing for 155 yards and running for 105 more, including the game-winning 2-point conversion for a 41-40 OT victory.

Chris Wells played with an attitude.

They obviously love their band at GlenOak!

The absolute best baton twirler that I've ever seen at a high school game!

This young lady belongs at the head of the Penn State Blue Band!

Back to the game photos. Wells on the carry.

The fourth quarter couldn't have been any more exciting. Both teams executed so well.

Wells ran like a man possessed! He was fantastic!

Wells was determined...

...but so was Hartline.

Wells had one solid run after another on the night. He had an 80-yard touchdown run in the first half...

...and a 37-yard touchdown run in the second half.

But this 18-yard touchdown run in OT might have been his best run of the night. It was a jaw-dropper!

But Hartline came right back with a pretty nifty 12-yard TD run of his own in OT and then he took it in on this run for the 2-pt. conversion and the win.

Bob Sax and Jack Rose exchange pleasantries after a hard-fought contest.

It's a shame that either team had to lose this game.
