Here is a roundup of the other local games that happened Friday night.

Southridge 48, South Spencer 3

The Raiders (7-0, 4-0) laid the hammer down Friday night at Raider Field with a 48-3 rout of the Pocket Athletic Conference Small School Division rival Rebels. Southridge scored 42 points in the opening half. Senior Matt Springer carried the ball six times for 86 yards and four touchdowns. Southridge had 19 first downs, compared to two for South Spencer, and the Raiders held the Rebels to three yards on the ground.

Southridge is scheduled to return to action Oct. 9 against Heritage HIlls.

Forest Park 41, Springs Valley 26 

The Rangers (5-2) won their second straight game, and against an impromptu opponent as well. They were originally supposed to play North Posey, but when that got cancelled, they added Springs Valley to the docket. The winless Blackhawks came with a bit of a fight, leading 12-7 at halftime, but Forest Park generated 371 yards on the ground, and came out flying in the second half.

Senior Jake Begle delivered the goods once again, rushing 15 times for 169 yards and three scores. Junior quarterback Cooper Uebelhor and senior Trey Toby also had rushing touchdowns. The Rangers scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away.

Forest Park is set to be back at it Oct. 9 at Pike Central.
