Independence (2-2, 0-1), always a good rushing team, outrushed Eastmoor Academy 225-57.

The Warriors were led by QB Daivon Barrow who was responsible for two second half touchdowns which fueled the win; a 46-yard run and an 18-yard TD pass to TE Devon Edwards.

The Warriors are 2-2, 1-0 on the season.

COLUMBUS CITY LEAGUE FOOTBALL: Eastmoor rolls up 20-0 halftime lead; coasts to win



One of the annual challengers to a City League South Division championship is the Eastmoor Academy Warriors.

2012 should not be any different for Archie Griffin’s alma mater.

The Warriors scored 20 unanswered points to win a non-league contest against fellow City League member Northland, 27-6.

Two basketball players led Eastmoor in the game.

Daivon Barrow and Devon Edwards was too much for the Vikings.

Barrow threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to tight end Edwards. Barrow himself ran for a 26-yard score later in the contest.

Eastmoor always plays a tough non-league schedule, still has St. Charles and Dayton Thurgood Marshall on the way.


SWIFT TAX SERVICES/ High School Bounce Friday night Game of the Week: Independence snaps skid, drops Warriors on High School Bounce

Terry Hopewell scored a game-high 19 points and the Independence 76ers snapped a season-high three-game losing streak with a 64-50 victory over Eastmoor Academy Friday night.

The game was the SWIFT TAX SERVICES/ High School Bounce Game of the Week. (Listen to last night’s broadcast.)

The Warriors got off to a quick start against Independence, eventually opening a nine-point (21-12) second quarter lead on the heels of multiple Independence turnovers.

Hopewell, however, helped the Sixers weather the storm. The towering center scored 11 of his points in the first half during, most of which during a five-minute stretch in the second quarter that saw Eastmoor fail to score a single point. Hopewell’s efforts, combined with the Warriors’ cold shooting led to a two-point Sixers lead at halftime.

It was a streaky night, though, for Eastmoor. Multiple zone defenses from Independence forced the Warriors to multiple outside jump shots. Eastmoor Academy was balanced offensively, Doug Ritchey and John Draper each scored 13 points to pace the Warriors offensively. Daivon Barrow added seven.

Arguably Eastmoor’s best player, Ron Tanner was bottled up all night, scoring just one field goal and three points.

Independence’s other low-post threat, James Young, came alive in the third quarter, scoring 11 of 13 points after halftime.

Independence improves to 8-7, 6-4 in the City South Division. With the loss, Eastmoor Academy drops to 8-6, 6-4 in the City South Division. Players of the Game were Doug Ritchey for Eastmoor and Terry Hopewell for Independence.

Austin Traylor of Walnut Ridge (33) scored 13 points started it’s venture of broadcasting Columbus City League men’s basketball games on Friday January 7, by airing one of the top rivalries in the city, Eastmoor Academy and Walnut Ridge.

The Warriors and Scots were playing for the 100th time in the Eastside series.

The two teams, members of the City League South Division, both came into the game at 4-2 overall. Walnut Ridge was undefeated in the division at 3-0, but Eastmoor had one loss, to Independence.

Walnut Ridge, the defending South champions, will be hard to beat. They have size, talent and experience. 13 of 15 players return from the championship team of a year ago. The Scots have eight players over 6-3, with 6’9 Dwayne Bazemore, 6’8 Allasane Kah, 6’6 Kai Turner and 6’6 Aboubacry Diop and the star of the team, Austin Traylor is 6’4. That height tells opponents that scoring inside will be tough with so many shot blockers guarding the basket. Outside shooting will have to be the remedy.

The game started out different than most games, as Eastmoor was awarded 4 free throws after Walnut Ridge was assessed a double technical for a pre-game violation.

The Warriors best player, senior guard Ron Tanner, who’ll be playing defensive back for the Ohio State Buckeyes in the fall, sank three of four free throws and quickly, it was 3-0.

But from that point on, Eastmoor could not get their offense going, nor could Tanner, get open for shots. The Scots ended the first quarter 21-6 with Traylor leading the way with eight points.

The second quarter was no better as Walnut Ridge stretched the lead out to 40-14. Eastmoor did go into the locker room on a high-note, as guard Charles Braden scored on a long 3-point shot at the buzzer which had the sellout crowd, buzzing.

At halftime, Eastmoor was led by Tanner with 7 points. Walnut Ridge was led by Adam McCall with 10 points, Diop and Traylor with 8 each.

The second half was won by the Warriors, 33-28. Leading the way, were John Draper with 10 points and Doug Ritchey with 9 points.

The rest of the Eastmoor scoring: Tanner with 7, Daivon Barrow 4, Braden 3, DeShawn Marshall with 6, Bryan Booker 1 and Jalen Crosby with 2.

The Walnut Ridge score book had Traylor with 13, McCall 12, Diop with 8, Bazemore 8, Roy Alexander with 4, Fred Hardgrove 1, Isaiah Brooks 4, Jed Reid with 5, Reco Spears 4 and Kah with 6.

The Players of the Game are Austin Traylor for Walnut Ridge. For Eastmoor, John Draper and Doug Ritchey.
