Ashland dominates Ellie Bell from Harding in convincing fashion

STK football turf

Marion — Ellie Bell, the traveling trophy in the High School Football Series between Marion Harding and Ashland, heads to her new home.

Ashland won the £300 brass bell that once hung on an Erie Railroad locomotive that ran on the rail between Ashland and Marion, beating the President 47-7. The Arrows’ only other win in the series dating back to 1953 came in 1994.

Ashland struck first when he scored on a 29-yard touchdown pass from 6-foot-5 freshman quarterback Nathan Bernhardt, who made his first start. He found senior Jonathan Metzger going up to his 7-0.

On the ensuing possession, Ashland’s Parker Grisinger intercepted a pass, and Harding looked like he might be in an even bigger hole early on, but on the next play from scrimmage, Harding’s Caden Grissinger saw Harding go into the hole early on. Jones made a brilliant one-handed interception in midfield. Back on the field and returning 45 yards he scored the Prexy score.
