Ean Lee ran 10 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns in leading Homer-Center to a 42-6 victory over Juniata Valley (6-5) in the opening round of the District 6-A playoffs Friday night.

Aaron Berezansky also scored twice for the Wildcats.

Tailback Mike Newhouse went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season and joined Lee in becoming the first running back tandem in Indiana County to rush for more than 1,000 yards.

Newhouse also became the second leading rusher in Homer-Center history, surpassing Mike Hilliard and needing 200 yards to pass Pete Kuta.

Homer-Center, which led 27-0 at halftime, will play the winner of Saturday's matchup between Bellwood-Antis and Bishop Carroll next week in the semifinals, site and time to be determined.
