WOOSTER -- The Triway Titans remained undefeated in Principals Athletic Conference play with a come-from-behind victory over visiting Indian Valley High on Friday.

Indian Valley's Brady Byers opened the scoring with a 24-yard touchdown pass to Ross Love. Konner Cool added the point-after conversion for a 7-0 lead at the Titans faithful were still finding their seats.
Carmichael cut the deficit to a single point, 7-6, on a five-yard run, but the point-after kick by Timmy Ritchey failed.
Byers increased the lead to 14-6 with an 80-yard run followed by Cool's second point-after of the game.
The Braves built their biggest lead of the night, 21-6, when Jake Davis scored on a one-yard run in the second frame and Cool's foot was true for the point-after kick.
The hosts cut the deficit to 21-14 before the half on a 70-yard scoring pass from Carmichael to Dillon Kopp and Carmichael's first two-point conversion.
Unfortunately for the hosts, Indian Valley answered with an 11-yard run by Davis and a Cool kick for a 28-14 lead at the half.
Carmichael started the rally in the third frame on a five-yard touchdown run.
Davis scored his third TD late in the third quarter but the point-after kick was blocked, leaving the visitors with a 34-21 lead.
A one-yard run by Carmichael cut the deficit to eight points and it remained that way when the point-after kick attempt failed.
