The Greenmen improved to 7-0 (3-0 Suburban League American Conference), as they rushed for 205 yards as a team. They also sacked Barberton quarterback Chase Haywood seven times and intercepted a pass.
The Magics scored their lone touchdown in the second quarter as Haywood found Kaeleb Vega in the middle of the field, who then ran for a 68-yard score to cut the lead to 14-7.
Haywood completed 10-of-19 passes for 140 yards. Markim McKinnie rushed seven times for 54 yards. Ryan Watkins caught four passes for 37 yards. Keyandre Turner and Sonny Fox sacked the Aurora quarterback, with Turner forcing a fumble that was recovered by Watkins.
