Lake Co. triumph clears future some

Lake Co. triumph clears future some
Carlos Young threw two touchdown passes and ran for a third score to help Lake County rally for a 46-30 victory over Greenfield Thursday night.
The win means the Falcons (6-4, 5-2) will finish either second or fourth in Region 7-1A, depending on tonight’s Union City-Gleason result. Should UC triumph, LC would be fourth and travel to Trinity Christian Academy for Round 1 of the playoffs, while a Gleason victory would make the Falcons second and earn Lake County a home postseason date next week vs. Fayette Academy.
The loss bumped Greenfield (4-6, 3-4) from playoff consideration.
Young ran for 180 yards and completed 9-of-13 passes for 161 yards, including TDs of seven yards to Trevor Blythe and 65 yards to Dominic Kimble. Kimble also caught an 11-yard scoring pass from Sam Hayes, who hit on 13-of-16 tosses for 146 yards.
In all, Lake County totaled 568 yards, but committed four turnovers.
Greenfield had taken leads of 24-16 at the end of the first quarter and 30-22 at the half.
Daniel Ricketts caught a pair of TD passes from Ty Smithson for the Yellowjackets.
