TOLEDO CENTRAL CATHOLIC 0
Week three of the 1980 season saw the Little Giants welcome the Fighting Irish of Toledo Central Catholic to Harmon Stadium for a non-conference contest. Ross came into the game at 2-0 after wins over Tiffin Columbian and Toledo DeVilbiss. The Irish came in at 1-1.
The Ross defense had a good game in pitching the shutout, allowing Central just 108 total yards, but the Little Giant offense was hampered by 12 penalties for 145 yards.
The two teams battled to a scoreless halftime tie. Ross drew first, and only blood at the 6:13 mark of the third quarter. Little Giant QB Mike Eicher hit Scott Logan with a 76 yard TD pass to put Ross up 6-0. The PAT was no good and that was all the scoring on the night as Coach Pete Moores Giants moved to 3-0 with Lorain Admiral King on the horizon in the Buckeye Conference opener.
The Little Giants had 273 yards of total offense to 108 for the Irish.
Ross had a 161-47 advantage on the ground and 112-61 through the air.
Shawn Simms had two big QB sacks and Brent Foos picked off two Central passes, his fourth and fifth picks of the season.
