High school football: Oberlin next in line for ‘Thrashing’ from Firelands

OBERLIN — Is getting “Thrashed” becoming the area’s equivalent of getting “Gronked?” Quarterback Brad Thrasher was simply unstoppable on the road against the Oberlin Phoenix on Friday night — leading the Falcons with 172 rushing yards, going 7-of-8 passing for another 200 yards and putting the ball in the end zone six times in a Read More…

High school football: Clearview can’t stop Thome, Buckeyes

VERMILION — Vermilion won the battle, but lost the war against Valley Forge on Friday night.

High school football: North Ridgeville’s Demario McCall makes Avon Lake cry “Uncle”


NORTH RIDGEVILLE — All around the Southwestern Conference, opposing fans and coaches are starting to get tired of Run-D.M.C.

High school football: Columbia beats Black River in Patriot Athletic Conference


COLUMBIA STATION — Columbia beat Black River at its own game Friday night, rushing for 277 yards in a 42-28 Patriot Athletic Conference crossover win over the Pirates.

High school football: Midview stakes claim to front-runner role in Southwestern Conference against Berea-Midpark


BEREA — Midview’s all-state quarterback was on the sideline, bruised not only from last week’s battle with Avon but a hard-hitting first half against Berea-Midpark. The Middies’ top receiver was playing quarterback, and threw a tough-luck interception that led to an immediate touchdown and a halftime deficit. So how did Midview react? Like a really Read More…

High school football: Linville runs all over Amherst in Olmsted Falls win

AMHERST — Olmsted Falls senior running back Spencer Linville didn’t start the Bulldogs’ 19-14 Southwestern Conference win at Amherst. He sure finished it.

High school football: Avon contains Westlake’s Hardy in 56-13 lead

WESTLAKE — The Avon Eagles had one goal that stood out above the rest Friday night: Stop Westlake standout senior running back JaQuan Hardy. “We didn’t want him to single-handedly beat us,” Avon coach Mike Elder said. “That’s for sure.” Walking off the field as the leader of the 4-1 Eagles, Elder believed Avon accomplished Read More…

High school football: Kuchta has perfect day as Elyria Catholic rolls over Parma


ELYRIA — Normally when a Division I school meets a Division V school, a score of 49-7 is not out of the ordinary. When the Division V school has the 49, it’s a big deal. Such was the case Friday night at Knights of Columbus Field, where Elyria Catholic used a plethora of big plays, Read More…
