West Holmes dropped to 1-7 on the season when they traveled to Lexington on Oct. 14 and played a great first quarter, but eventually penalties and turnovers plagued West Holmes who fell to Lex 48-13.
Lexington bumps up its record to 6-2 and they are 4-0 in the Ohio Cardinal Conference and have a date with Mansfield Senior in week nine. Senior was the leader in the OCC before they dropped a home game to Wooster 35-21.
Trenton Bridenthal passed for 62 yards for West Holmes against Lex and Shane Jones led the rushing attack with 61 yards in the loss for the Knights.
The Knights will finish with two home games in week’s nine and ten as they host Wooster and Clear Fork to end the season.
