Rebels rout Liberty
LIBERTY — Crestview is not letting a less-than-stellar non-league performance slow it down in the Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference Gray Division.
The Rebels picked up their second straight league win by topping Liberty 49-13 on Friday.
Crestview is 3-2 and 2-0 in the league while Liberty falls to 2-3 and 0-1. Liberty’s league opener with Brookfield was canceled last week and the Leopards replaced that game with a road game at Rootstown.
Roclen Bettura had 24 carries for 106 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Rebels. Anthony Cusick threw for 218 yards and a touchdown for the Rebels, in addition to rushing for 60 yards and two touchdowns.
Crestview hosts Brookfield on Friday.
