Falcons earn first ever win in program history

Notre Dame (Ohio) notched the program’s first win on Saturday, a 14-10 victory over Lindsey Wilson (Ky.).

Khalid Harrison and Pedro Powell had rushing TDs to lead the Falcons and their defense held up, only allowing 10 points.

Notre Dame and Lindsey Wilson are the NAIA’s two newest entrants among 93 programs.

"It feels good to get one under our belt’" Notre Dame head coach Adam Howard said. "Getting to this point has been a lot of work for two years, really. And work on the part of a lot of people at our College, both on and off the field. To get a win and get the momentum building is huge for our program."

Down, 3-0, Notre Dame started what would become the first scoring drive in program history late in the first quarter after a diving interception by free safety John Hyde. Dak Britt engineered a 12-play drive that was capped off with a 10-yard TD run by Harrison. Britt completed two passes on the drive and had a 16-yard run as well. Harrison had five carries for 41 yards, as the Falcons grabbed their first lead of the season after being shutout, 23-0, in their opener against Mercyhurst (Pa.) last week.

Westlake’s Kam Abed, Elyria Catholic’s Jared Schuster and Vermilion’s Logan Wright are starting offensive lineman, while North Ridgeville’s Shane Friend plays linebacker. Friend has made eight tackles in two games.

This coach is a snake in the grass using kids. Look at last years roster and even last years starters. How can you honestly recruit 150 kids leading them all to believe they had a chance to play?
He's had 50% turn over on his roster in one year. I agree the best should play but he's flat out lying to kids about his interest in them for his own benefit.
