Shelby pushed Ontario to the limit Friday night at Skiles Field, but the Warriors hung on for a 22-16 win.

Ontario got on the scoreboard first with a 2-yard touchdown scamper by Jordan Campbell, who returned after missing the teams last four games to give the Warriors a 7-0 first quarter lead. Tyler Boatwright would extend Ontario's lead to 15-0 just before the break, but Shelby would respond on the final play of the half on a 32-yard strike from Lucas Bihl to Coalton Webb to make it 15-8.

Bihl would find Webb again in the third quarter from 42- yards out this time to cut the Ontario lead to 15-14. Then midway into the fourth Boatwright would extend the Warriors lead back out to eight on his second rushing touchdown of the night.

A blocked punt by Webb, resulting in an Ontario safety would give Shelby the ball back under three minutes to play trailing 22-16 with a chance to win the game, but the Warriors defense would hold to escape with a 6-point win.

The Whippets outgained Ontario 300-252, with 227 passing yards and 73 on the ground while the Warriors threw for 131 and ran for 121.

Boatwright went 7-12 for 117 yds, carrying 21 times for 74 yds and 2 TD's. Campbell finished with 14 car for 57 yds and a TD, but left the game in the second quarter with a leg injury. Cameron Mack had 5 rec for 110 yds.

Bihl went 11-27 for 227 yds, 2 TD's and 3 Int's. Spencer Blevins carried 13 times for 74 yards, catching 4 balls for 76 yards. Webb had 5 rec, 110 yds and 2 TD's.

Ontario improved to 5-2 with the win and will host 3-4 Bellevue next Friday. Shelby is now 1-6 and will play at 6- 1 Tiffin Columbian.
