Mount Vernon sophomore Jonny Askew returns a kickoff against Ashland.

MOUNT VERNON — Sophomore sensation Jonny Askew had a couple of monster plays, but it wasn't enough to push Mount Vernon past Ashland on Friday night.

Instead, Jonathan Metzger and his Ashland teammates expunged four week’s worth of frustration Friday night at Energy Field.

Metzger made a highlight-reel interception early in the fourth quarter and hauled in a 25-yard touchdown pass moments later as the Arrows rallied for a 35-17 Ohio Cardinal Conference win at Mount Vernon.
