ARCANUM — Miami East coach Max Current summed it up after Friday’s game at Arcanum.

“Both offenses came to play. The defenses? I don’t know,” he said after his Vikings and the host Trojans combined for more than 1,000 yards of total offense and 100 points in a 62-40 Miami East victory in Cross County Conference play.

“They had trouble stopping our offense,” Current said. “We had a long touchdown called back by a penalty and had to punt, and that was the only time we punted on the night. We had good offensive performances by a lot of guys.

“We’re not pleased with giving up 40 points, though. Give credit to Arcanum — their first four games they’ve played Covington, Riverside, North and us. Their quarterback is a heck of a football player, too, and they kept coming. We scored two touchdowns to go up 10 at the half and held a two-score lead pretty much the rest of the way.”

Logan May — who had more than 300 yards of total offense himself — scored on runs of 49 and 84 yards to give East (3-1, 3-0 CCC) a 14-6 lead after one, but Arcanum scored back-to-back touchdowns to grab an 18-14 lead. Braxton Donaldson then threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Arron Adams and a 9-yard score to Kurt Brower, and the Vikings led 28-18 at the half.

May then caught a 44-yard touchdown pass from Donaldson and ran for scores of 14 and 63 yards in the third to make it 49-32 heading into the final quarter, and May added two more touchdowns of 19 and 2 yards in the fourth to put it away.

May had 286 yards and six touchdowns on 17 carries and Donaldson was 7 for 13 for 119 yards and three scores to lead the way.
