Gahanna coach John Snoad is expecting a tougher time in the rematch against an opponent that outsizes his team.

Although the Lions scored all 31 of the their points during the first half of their win over Strongsville last season, Gahanna coach John Snoad is expecting a tougher time in the rematch against an opponent that outsizes his team.

After the Mustangs fell behind 28-0 to Lake Catholic, they brought in sophomore Bobby Cole to play quarterback and put together three scoring drives. Strongsville rallied to within 42-21 with nine minutes remaining.

Cole was 15-for-24 passing for 223 yards and one touchdown.

Gahanna had 31 running plays and attempted 28 passes against DeSales, as Tuohy rushed for 84 yards and passed for 150. Snoad is hoping the Lions do a better job at capitalizing on their scoring opportunities after scoring just one touchdown in regulation during their opener.

•Last week: Tuohy connected with Cavendish for a 20-yard touchdown in the third overtime to give the Lions their second consecutive win over DeSales.

Gahanna trailed 7-0 until the fourth quarter, when backup quarterback Ronald Robinson hit Jeremy Walls for a 29-yard touchdown with 9:10 left. Robinson replaced Tuohy, who had to sit out a play because his helmet came off during the previous play.

DeSales' Adam Acquista made a 20-yard field goal in the third overtime to give his team a 10-7 lead.
