Archbold and Swanton squared off in Northwest Ohio Athletic League football action, Friday, Sept. 18, at Archbold.

The Streaks suffered their second setback of the season, 45-7.

McComb finished with 127 yards passing while the Swanton ground game chewed up a total of 264 yards.

The Bulldog defense also forced four Archbold turnovers.

McComb threw for two touchdowns: a 7-yard strike to Gunnar Oakes in the second quarter and a 48-yard TD toss to Robbie Gilsdorf in the third.

Gilsdorf also scored on a 25-yard touchdown run in the third.

Zach Leahey finished the scoring with a 15-yard TD run at the end of the fourth.

“Swanton is a good team, and we knew that coming in,” said David Dominique, AHS head coach.

“We had the turnovers; we are our own worst nightmare right now. We make good things happen and then something bad seems to happen.

“That is something we will have to get fixed.

“Swanton is a well-balanced team and has good players, but bottom line is, we didn’t make the plays when we had to.

“We had plenty of chances; we just didn’t make the plays on both side of the ball.”
