Bryant makes 9 tackles as Storm runs past Tiffin for first ever GLIAC win

Freshman running back Rod Smith rushed for a career-high 172 yards and a school-record three touchdowns and Admiral King graduate Cameron Bryant contributed nine tackles on defense as Lake Erie College picked up its first Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference football victory in record fashion with a 52-42 road win in a shootout over Tiffin University on Saturday at Frost-Kalnow Stadium.

The 52 points scored were the most in the Storm’s (2-8, 1-8 GLIAC) four-year varsity history, as were the five total rushing touchdowns. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak for Lake Erie.

Smith and senior quarterback Sean Bedevelsky (Brunswick) each ran for two touchdowns in the first half as the Storm ran out to a 34-21 lead. The duo were part of Lake Erie’s season-high 270-yard rushing day.

Defensively for the Storm, Gus Armbruster (North Royalton) had a game-high 11 tackles, while Bryant had nine.

Vermilion graduate Mike Virgin had 11 tackles to lead Tiffin.

The Storm closes out the season next week at home on Seniors Day and Veterans Appreciation Day against Ashland University. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium.
