High School Football: Lutheran West at Columbia

Columbia Owen Barta tackles Lutheran West Adam Felten in first quarter Oct. 17.  Steve Manheim

COLUMBIA TWP. — The Columbia Raiders learned a valuable lesson Friday night about how to come from behind. They also were reminded it’s better to play with the lead. Columbia and Lutheran West came into their Patriot Athletic Conference showdown with a combined 196 points scored and only 14 given up in their last two Read More…

High School Football: Euclid at Lorain

Lorain # 33 Carlos Chavis breaks the Euclid tackles for a touchdown. Amanda K. Rundle 10-17-14

LORAIN — The only thing better than having one dominating running back carry the ball for 100 yards is having two dominating running backs go for triple digits. That’s exactly what Lorain had Friday night, as it snapped a two-game losing streak with a 36-6Lake Erie League win over Euclid at George Daniel Stadium. Sophomore Read More…

High School Football: Bay at North Ridgeville

North Ridgeville High School junior running back DeMario McCall (2) evades being tackled Bay Village High School sophomore defense back Jimmy Hoke (22) and junior linebacker Nick Best (20) on Friday night, Oct. 17.

NORTH RIDGEVILLE — No doubt about Friday’s West Shore Conference game. The “Best” team certainly came out on top. Make that Nick Best. Bay’s 6-foot, 200-pound junior tailback rushed for 165 yards on 38 grinding carries and scored three times as the Rockets handed North Ridgeville its third straight loss, 34-19. The Rangers fell to Read More…

The Columbia Raiders heard the whispers of doubt. Coach Jason Ward knew critics — and opponents — were salivating when Golden Helmet winner Jay Banyasz donned his graduation cap and gown and said good-bye to high school last summer. But this year’s players have shown that Columbia’s program is built for longevity and the Raiders Read More…

High School Football: Lakewood at Elyria Catholic

  ELYRIA — With Lakewood stacking the box in the first half, Elyria Catholic decided to pass on giving the ball to senior tailback Justin Rankin and just pass the ball. It worked. Junior quarterback Jake Kuchta, mixing in a lot of wide receiver screens and some deep throws, completed his first eight passes and Read More…

High School Football: North Ridgeville at Avon

Avon # 27 Sonny Cooper makes one of many Avon touchdowns of the night. Amanda K. Rundle

AVON — The Avon Eagles adopted a “next man up” philosophy when Mike Elder took over the program eight years ago, and that way of thinking has paid off handsomely. With star running back Gerett Choat watching from the sidelines the past three weeks, junior Sonny Cooper has picked up the slack … and then Read More…

High School Football: Wellington at Keystone

Keystone High School senior wide receiver Kobe Whalen (1) jumps to make a catch in the endzone but is blocked by Wellington High School senior defensive lineman Bobby Nestor (25) on Friday night, Oct. 10 during a game at Keystone High School.

    LAGRANGE — Keystone couldn’t get out of its own way at times, but Wellington had problems of its own. Despite losing three first-half fumbles, the Wildcats were able to muscle past the Dukes, 28-14, in a Patriot Athletic Conference – Stars Division game at Keystone Stadium. Seniors Denny Szalai, Brandon Buttolph and C.J. Read More…

ELYRIA — Coach Kevin Fell talked all week about the importance of the next four games on Elyria’s schedule. He looked at the “Fantastic 50” compiled by high school guru Drew Pasteur, who said a 7-3 record would get the Pioneers into the playoffs, with 6-4 also a possibility. “But we don’t want to be Read More…

High School Football: Midview at Bay Village

BAY VILLAGE — Sometimes numbers can be deceiving. On the scoreboard it looked like Midview rolled to a 44-7 West Shore Conference win Friday night, but the game film will tell a different story. The Middies had to work hard to maintain their 7-0 record, 4-0 in the WSC, against a feisty Rockets team. “Honestly, Read More…
