Leopards Freshman Rally for 16-12 Win at New Philadelphia – Freshman Football
Louisville 16, New Philadelphia 12
The Leopards trailed 12-0 in the second quarter before rallying with a pair of touchdowns to take the lead. With under three minutes to go before halftime, Quarterback Charlie Roberts threw a pass to Wide Receiver Chase Mueller who pitched it back to Runningback Andrew Essik for a 29 yard touchdown. Roberts found Jacob Davide for the conversion attempt to cut the New Philadelphia lead to 12-8 by halftime.
The Leopards defense shut down the Quakers the rest of the way to preserve the lead and eventually the victory. Joey Johnson, Kaden Pawley, and Davide led Louisville’s second half shutout effort.
