Magics pull away late to fend off Tallmadge **Video**

The Magics fought through the rain and a desperate team to improve to 8-0 on the season.

Barberton scored 28 second half points following a 14-7 first half to beat the Blue Devils 42-21.

Kyree Young dashed for a career-high 291 yards on 30 carries for four touchdowns. Chase Haywood completed 17-of-24 passes for 166 yards and two other scores, one to Kaeleb Vega and the other to Derrick Vaughn.

Vega caught four passes for 69 yards, while Ryan Watkins (four for 41), Tim Starcher (four for 21) Young (three for 16) and Vaughn (two for 19) excelled in the passing game as well.

Defensively, Spencer Hutchison and Tim Starcher intercepted passes and Gavin Krska, Sonny Fox and Nick Plucinski sacked Tallmadge quarterback Sam Seeker.

Next, the Magics look to improve to 9-0 with a road game at Kent, Friday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m.
