RICHMOND, Ind. — After missing the previous game, no one seemed to be able to topple Mason Romack in Hagerstown’s 56-14 win over Union City on Sept. 2. He only carried the ball seven times, but still managed to go all the way. end zone more times than he was knocked to the ground.

Romack finished the game with 259 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Aiden Grover also had a solid backfield game, rushing for 82 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries. His performance would be the highlight of the offense most days, but Romack’s 37 yards per carry made Grover’s still-quite-efficient 11.7 seem elementary.
The Tigers’ ground game was so unstoppable that they only passed the ball once, and even that was perfect. Quarterback Kayne Ervin finished the game 1-for-1 with a 16-yard touchdown pass to Collin Beaty. That duo combined for another 108 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Romack, Ervin and Beaty also intercepted a pass on defense. Peyton Meyer led the defensive charge with 18 tackles and a forced fumble.
