Erie-Prophetstown 50, Rockridge 48: After scoring 27 points total the first two weeks of the season, the Panthers offense showed up in a big way for the second week in a row in Week 4, and needed all of it to improve to 2-2.

Ashton Nobis ran for 92 yards and two touchdowns, and also caught one of Connor Nye’s three TD passes. Nye also ran for a score, as did Kacen Johnson and Kolton Wilk. Bryce Aude and Kieren Harris caught Nye’s other two scoring strikes.

Milledgeville, which scored 22 points in the first quarter and 32 in the second, amassed just 271 total yards – 190 rushing and 81 passing – because it took over on a short field most of the game, after Blue Ridge attempted only one punt; that came after the first series, and ended up with the snap over the punter’s head.
