GNADENHUTTEN -- The Indian Valley Braves left no doubt in a 41-0 home win over Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in Principals Athletic Conference play on Friday.
Indian Valley (6-1) had outstanding performances on the ground as junior Cory Carlisle tallied eight carries for 142 yards while finding the end zone twice.
Senior Ross Love also only needed eight touches to do his damage of 104 yards rushing including a 40-yard score and three extra-points.
Senior quarterback Brady Cotsmire ran the ball 10 times for 97 yards and a touchdown to complete the Braves' attack.
Cotsmire got the ball rolling with 7:36 remaining in the first quarter when he hit paydirt on a 15-yard keeper, but a missed point-after made it 6-0 in the Braves' favor.
Carlisle dove into the action on a monster 69-yard run for a score with 3:40 to go in the first period. This time, however, the extra-point was successful, stretching the IVHS lead to 13-0 at the end of one.
Early in the second quarter, junior Brennan O'Connor took the ball and delivered another Braves' touchdown from one-yard out.
With 4:29 left in the second quarter, Jayden Helter bolstered the Indian Valley lead by punching one in from the seven-yard line. Carlisle's run for the two-point conversion increased the lead to 27-0.
Carlisle added another six-pointer with the first half dwindling down with just over a minute to play, tallying from one-yard out to all but end it as the Braves took a 34-0 lead into the locker room.
The final points of the game came in the third quarter when Love broke off a 40-yard run and did not stop until the scoreboard flashed to 40 points. Love made it 41 by kicking the extra-point.
Indian Valley's 479 yards of total offense was far greater than the 127 collected by CVCA (0-7).
The Braves did most of their damage on the ground as they racked up 429 rushing yards and six touchdowns while CVCA only managed 99 rushing yards.
The Royals were penalized six times for 40 yards while the Braves were flagged four times adding up to 35 yards.
