Friday Night Football Highlights:
Fort LeBoeuf 55, Corry 14: In Corry, the Bison finally got a pass as they continued to rack up rushing yards and touchdowns while ending their season in Region 4 with a 5-0 record.
Fort LeBoeuf (6-1) had only attempted one (incomplete) pass in unbalanced wins over Fairview and Girard the previous two weeks. On Friday, the Bison ran for 420 yards as Adam Lichtinger (141 yards, TD) and Tristin Harris (116 yards, 3 TD) led the way.
LeBoeuf’s only pass attempt, of course, was also affected. Connor McChesney completed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Justin Leuschen.
Corry was playing his first game in almost a month after an extended layoff from COVID-19.
Adam Lichtinger: 4 carries, 141 yards, 97 yard touchdown run
Tristin Harris: 3 rushes, 116 yards, 3 TDs (37, 8, 71), 80-yard punt return for TD
Justin Leuschen: 60-yard TD run, 21-yard TD reception
General McLane 37, Franklin 21: At Franklin, McLane totaled 430 attacking yards and earned a 37-21 Region 5 victory over Franklin on Friday.
The Lancers built up a 23 point lead in the three quarters and allowed two big plays to put the Knights closer to two touchdowns in the dying minutes. McLane had 14 players carrying the ball as the Lancers looked to build momentum ahead of the playoffs.
Jean Amon: 6 carries, 81 yards, 2 touchdowns
Dylan Sheeder: 10 range, 103 yards
Wyatt Bell: 3 runs, 85 yards, 1 touchdown, 6 catches, 60 yards, 89-yard punt return for touchdown

Eisenhower 41, Iroquois 6: In Russell, the Knights scored 27 points in the second half to claim another football victory in Region 2 on Friday at the Pasture of Pain.
The Braves were only 14-0 down at halftime and made their way to the scoreboard in the third quarter, but Eisenhower’s hasty attack was too much. The Knights ran for 271 yards and five touchdowns in the win.
Michael Hoopsick: 16 carries, 111 yards, 1 touchdown
Benji Bauer: 16 carries, 130 yards, 2 touchdowns
Keegan Eckström: 5 carries, 105 yards, 2 touchdowns
Two District 10 games have been postponed to Saturday due to concerns about looming weather conditions. The Titusville-Conneaut (Ohio) game and the Warren-Northwestern game were scheduled for Saturday at 1 p.m.
Only the game in the region was starkly behind schedule as Fairview and Mercyhurst Prep were half an hour behind schedule.
