Massillon’s J.D. Crabtree opened the scoring by taking a pair of 1–yard handoffs for two scores to give the Tigers an early 14-0 lead.
Back came Harding as the Raiders tied the score at 14 following Keemari Murry’s 34- yard scamper for six points and a Lamar Carmichael pass to Nate Walls for a 16-yard score.
However, Massillon ended the first half with a touchdown of their own thanks to a Danny Clark strike to Reggie Rogers from 16-yards away (Massillon, 21-14).
With 7:45 left in the third quarter, Lyron Wilson takes the handoff and dashes 16-yards to pay dirt to give the Tigers a 28-14 lead. Then, just a little over two minutes later, JD Crabtree rushed in for his 3rd touchdown (7 yards) to put Massillon up by three scores (35-21)
The Tigers expand their advantage to 51-23-3 over Harding all-time.
Harding will try to get back on track next Friday when they travel to Maple Heights. Massillon will welcome Lake Catholic.
