The Attica Red Ramblers defeated the North Vermillion Falcons Friday night on North Vermillion’s home field in the first round of Class 1A sectional play.
The game started slow for North Vermillion, who managed to lose 13 yards on their first two drives.
Drew Sheridan, Attica’s primary running back, torched the Falcon defense early with a pair of slippery runs, each netting a touchdown. The Red Ramblers converted both of their two-point tries and started the game with a 16-0 lead. North Vermillion, however, answered the Red Rambler offensive with a long, drudging drive, plunging through multiple fourth downs until senior Falcon Jacob Hill carried the ball in for a touchdown, putting the score 16-8 at the end of the first quarter.
