Barto places second, boys team fourth at NBC meet; matches this week will determine championship title

Christian Barto fires a shot on the No. 17 hole during the Northeastern Buckeye Conference leage meet last week. Bartow led the Warriors with an 83.

CARROLLTON – The battle for the Northeastern Buckeye Conference (NBC) golf championship is coming down to the wire.

Carrollton picked up two wins last week in its quest for the title, one of which was against West Branch, a team that had only one league loss. The Warriors also have one league loss.

The championship is determined by adding points earned at the league meet (held Sept. 11) and points earned during the regular season.

Minerva won the meet with 343 points followed by Marlington with 353, West Branch, 356; Carrollton, 361; Louisville, 368; Alliance, 388; Canton South, 410; and Salem, 459.

The Warriors were scheduled to play Minerva Monday and will face Marlington Thursday in their final two matches of the season.

“We will need to beat both Minerva and Marlington to have a shot at the title,” said Coach Chris Barto. “The win against West Branch was huge for us. It was our lowest team score of the season.”

Carrollton blockers Colby Moore (16) and Austin McIntire (58) clear a path for quarterback Parker Crim (14) during the league opener Friday at Community Field.

CARROLLTON – On paper, the Carrollton Warriors and Salem Quakers were virtually locked in a dead heat Friday at Community Field.

On the football field, Salem was a 27-14 winner.

The two teams were separated by one first down: Salem with 15, Carrollton with 14. The yards the Quakers fell short of in the running game, they made up for in the passing game. Carrollton runners rushed for 160 yards and Salem finished with 10 yards. In the passing game, Warrior quarterback Parker Crim threw for 64 yards, compared to 244 for Salem quarterback Mitch Davidson.

Salem was penalized eight times for 55 yards and the Warriors nine times for 65 yards.

The Warriors held a 26:29 to 21:31 edge in time of possession.

The difference was in turnovers.

Malvern Dancing on the Bridge termed ‘most successful event ever’

MALVERN – Former Mayor Alan Artzner thanked the current mayor, administrator, street department and council members for their support in making this year’s Dancing On The Bridge festival the best the villlage has ever seen.

“The committee, the citizens, everyone wants to thank you.  We had such good weather.  And in 16 years we’ve raised over half a million dollars,” Artzner said during the Sept. 18 council meeting.

Council members agreed this year’s event was smooth, none, if any problems existed, and everyone worked so well together to make it a great time.

In an unrelated matter, council informed a village resident there is nothing they can do about a burned out property located adjacent to his property.

The resident complained that a 12 to 15 foot section of wall that is standing is tipping out into the alley about six inches or more, adjacent to his parking area and property.  The resident can’t park there because the wall could collapse on his vehicles.  He can’t access his garage and he worries it is a danger to people walking by.

Village Administrator Marcus Benson noted that there is nothing the village can do.  The burned property is still under investigation by the state fire marshal.  The village is not permitted by law to go onto anyone’s property and push walls in, even if it is a safety hazard.

Benson will check with the fire marshal’s office to determine the current status of the property.

Council scheduled leaf pick up to begin Oct. 3 and run through Nov. 30.  Council reminded residents leaves must be raked to the curb side, but not into the street. No sticks, brush, limbs or “dog poo” is permitted in the leaves, according to council.  Leaves will be picked up by the street department.

In other business council:

– SET water department hours at village hall from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

– AUTHORIZED Benson to bid on a utility trailer at an upcoming auction.

– APPROVED the purchase of two auto re-lites for the furnaces at the water department at a cost of up to $400.

– LEARNED a fire hydrant on Coral Road was knocked over by a vehicle and not reported.

– LEARNED fire hydrant flushing is completed.

– WILL hold a park advisory board meeting Sept. 28 at 7 p.m. in village hall.

Boys soccer team picks up second win

The Carrollton boy’s soccer team picked up their second win of the season last Saturday at home 3-0 over Wellsville.

Jacob Ford scored two goals for the Warriors, while Lennart Rossius added one.

Goalie Jordan Poracky recorded seven saves. The Warriors outshot the Tigers 20-7.

Due to some injuries, the Warriors had many players playing positions there were not accustom to playing.

“I’m happy to get the win,” said head coach A. J. Atkinson. “We were able to muscle our way through. The guys adjusted to their new roles and we came out with a victory.”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday, the Warriors fell to host West Branch 5-1.

Ford had the Warriors only goal of the game. Evan Meck finished with five saves.

Carrollton ended play last week with an overall record of 2-4 and 0-2 in the NBC.

Carrollton was to travel to Louisville Tuesday. They will host Tuscarawas Valley Saturday morning beginning at 10 a.m.
