It was period Glenville football Saturday night at Bedford's Bearcat Stadium.

Obtain out of the gate fast and don't look back throughout a 41-6 Division I, Region 1 quarterfinal victory over Warren Harding.

The victory sets up next Saturday's regional semifinal game between two unbeaten — Glenville and St. Edward — at a site to be determined. The Eagles (11-0), ranked No. 3 in The Plain Dealer and state poll, advanced with a 35-21 win over Mentor.

Unranked Harding (8-3), an eight-time postseason qualifier, never knew what hit it but Shane Wynn had a lot to do with that.

Wynn, a 5-9, 165-pound senior, helped Glenville (11-0) build a 27-6 halftime lead on 68-yard touchdown run off a Harding punt just a little under two minutes into the game.

Marlon Worthington Jr. kicked the first of his three first-half extra points.

"I basically ran back and forth and when I saw the wall, I hit it," said Wynn, who finished with an unofficial 101 yards rushing, 32 yards in receptions and two touchdowns. "I set the tempo and the defense just carried it over."

Glenville, ranked No. 1 in the area and state poll, No. 5 in the ESPN and 11th in the USA Today national polls, extended its lead to 14-0 at the outset of the second quarter.

After V'Angelo Bentley's 85-yard touchdown scamper was nullified by an unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty, Robert Walton Jr.'s 2-yard touchdown run capped a 7-play, 85-yard drive which was sparked by quarterback Cardale Jones' 22-yard completion to Evonte Dunn.

Jones then found Nicholas Davis for a 15-yard scoring toss on the sixth and final play of a 35-yard drive that put Glenville ahead, 21-0, with 6:37 left in the first half.

The Tarblooders went ahead, 27-0, a minute later when Jones scored from 20 yards on a 4-play, 33-yard march that was set up by an Antwan Crutcher interception.

Jones exited the game after the touchdown with a hip injury but returned in the second half. He was eventually replaced by sophomore Christopher Overton but not before completing 10 of 15 passes for 183 yards.

"I think [Jones] has a hip-pointer but he should be ready to go next week," said Tarblooders coach Ted Ginn Sr.

Harding's lone score came on a 2-yard run by quarterback Mikhail Seawood with 2:59 remaining before intermission and one play after an errant snap on a Glenville punt attempt.
