ELYRIA — The “Kardiac Kids” are alive and well and playing at Ely Stadium. Elyria pulled another rabbit out of the hat Friday night in coming from behind to stun Stow 22-21 with two scores in the final 1:47 in unbelievable fashion. Senior Brad Schneider caught both touchdowns from Hunter Parsh — the first covering Read More…

NORTH RIDGEVILLE — Demario McCall put together the greatest rushing performance in the history of LorainCounty on Friday night. Unfortunately for North Ridgeville, the record-breaking night helped spark Elyria Catholic to a 57-46 come-from-way-behind victory. “I just told (the players) that we were going to be ultra-aggressive,” Panthers coach Mike Polevacik said. “Part of it Read More…

AVON – It sounds simple, of course. But Avon improved to 8-1 Friday night because, as simple as it may sound, the Eagles stayed on the field. Showing now-annual offensive diversity that can keep opponents guessing, the Eagles used a steady dose of Jake Sopko and Zack Torbert in the air and Sonny Cooper on Read More…

High School Football: Firelands at Wellington

WELLINGTON — When a fortuitous bounce on a squib kick went Wellington’s way after taking a seven-point lead midway through the fourth quarter Friday night, it appeared the Dukes were in the driver’s seat for their third win of the year. Firelands had other plans. A huge sack by Tyler Allomong forced a punt, which Read More…

North Olmsted coach Tim Brediger knew he had a decision to make. Three-year starting quarterback Brad Novak graduated and the Eagles had a hole to fill at the most important offensive position. So he let senior Matt Starcovic — a starting wide receiver who served as Novak’s backup last season — and junior Christian Ammons Read More…

Rashod Berry has received advice from countless people during his recruiting process, but it was a conversation with one of Lorain’s greatest football players last weekend that sparked a whirlwind week for the Lorain High senior. “I talked to Raymont Harris (last week) at the Rutgers game (in Columbus),” Berry said. “He told me how Read More…

SHAKER HEIGHTS — Playing on a Saturday after a day off from school could have been a recipe for disaster in coach Kevin Fell’s mind as Elyria traveled to Shaker Heights for a Northeast Ohio River Division game. Fortunately for Elyria, the Red Raiders aren’t a very good football team this year and the Pioneers Read More…

EATON TWP. — The Midview passing attack has been raising eyebrows and dropping jaws all season, but all anyone wanted to talk about Friday night was 5-foot-11, 249-pound running back Brett Zupancic. The senior ran the ball eight times for 106 yards and a pair of touchdowns, caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Read More…
