OSWEGO -- Homestanding Oswego held a 30-0 lead at halftime and went on to a 37-6 victory over Uniontown here Friday night in a game between two of the three 11-man football teams in the Three Rivers League.

The Indians (2-0) led 16-0 at the end of the first quarter and outgained the Eagles (0-2) in total yards 372-145.

"Despite the score, we were happier with our kids effort tonight than we were

last week," Uniontown head coach Chad Stroud said. "Unfortunately, we need guys with more gas in their tank before they are dead tired. I think this game can be a learning opportunity for our younger kids if they let it sink in and take action."

Oswego quarterback Lane Martin completed 5 of 8 passes for 91 yards and also was responsible for a majority of the Indians' 281 rushing yards.

"Oswego is a very talented team," Stroud added. "Lane Martin is one of the best quarterbacks in the area in my opinion. They've got lots of team speed and agility, and some big horses up front. They were definitely stronger and in better shape than we were. It was a very humid night and we had guys getting sick and

cramping all over the place."

Jordan Woods led Eagle rushers with 39 yards on 8 carries and. Zach Travis scored Uniontown's only touchdown.

Zach Johns led the Eagle defense with 11 tackles while Ty Clayton and Brenton Esslinger had 10 each.

Uniontown will host Eureka Friday night in its Homecoming game.
