NELSONVILLE — Folding was not an option for the Logan Chieftains Friday night.
Oh, the Purple & White could have done so on several occasions — including when the Nelsonville-York Buckeyes brought on a 265-pound lineman to attempt a game-tying 2-point conversion midway through the final quarter at Boston Field — but they refused to do so.
And, for the second time this season, the Chiefs were rewarded... this time, with a thrilling 14-12 victory over their neighborhood rivals.
Logan fumbled the ball away three times (including the game-opening kickoff and a couple late fourth-quarter bobbles that could have led to a game-winning score by the Buckeyes), and had a punt blocked... but they did not, would not, fold. They looked adversity squarely in the eyes and backed it down.
