Leo finished the regular season at 9-0 and clinched a Northeast 8 Conference Title with a win against DeKalb on Friday night. The Lions’ running game has been a huge factor in their success this year. And against the Barons, both Mason Sheron and Carson Hoeppner rushed for over 100 yards.
The Lions’ defense has also been a huge factor in their success. Not only did Leo’s defense pitch a shutout against DeKalb, but they only gave up four first downs and 95 yards of total offense.
Leo takes on East Noble in the first round of Sectionals. The Knights are coached by long-time head coach Luke Amstutz and are coming off a trip to state last year. Even though Leo beat East Noble earlier this year, the Knights did put up 32 points; the most anyone has scored against the Lions this year.
