The Worthington Christian High School football team will look to move forward after opening Aug. 26 with a 49-13 loss to Cardington, a team that went 7-3 a year ago.

The Warriors play Friday, Sept. 2, at Galion Northmor, which they lost to 55-0 in their inaugural 2014 season but were much more competitive against last season, falling 25-19 in overtime.

The Golden Knights were held to fewer than 100 yards of offense and scored their only touchdown in a 27-6 loss to Convoy Crestview on Aug. 26 on a 38-yard punt return by junior Demetrius Johnson late in the fourth quarter.

Northmor, which allowed 237 yards rushing and 59 yards through the air, got 122 yards rushing and two touchdowns from Johnson in its win over the Warriors last season.

Worthington Christian trailed Cardington 42-0 at halftime. Quarterback Mark Shoemaker threw a 30-yard touchdown in the third quarter to receiver Reed Tucker, who had 12 receptions for 164 yards.
