Running back helps unbeaten Struthers pull away from Niles

By Steve Ruman-Vindicator, 09/09/17, 11:15AM EDT



For nearly two quarters of play, Friday’s All American Conference (White Tier) game between Struthers and Niles had all the makings of a nail-biter-til-the-end contest typical when the two teams meet.

Enter Willie Mitchell!

The Struthers junior made two big plays — on just before halftime, and one to start the third quarter — and the Wildcats never looked back in a 41-23 road win at Bo Rein Stadium.

With the win, Struthers (3-0) stretches its regular-season winning streak to 10 games, dating back to Sept. 9 of last year when it lost to Niles.

The Red Dragons fall to 0-3.
