  MEDINA — Week 11 is starting to sound pretty good to Elyria after Friday’s 50-20 win over Medina in the cold and rain. For only the third time in school history, but for the second year in a row, the Pioneers are heading to the postseason. And if things turn out just right, it Read More…

  ROCKY RIVER — This time, there would be no Elyria Catholic comeback. And because of it, there won’t be a postseason spot for the Panthers. Like North Ridgeville last week, Rocky River ambushed the Panthers for a 28-point lead at halftime. Unlike North Ridgeville — which opened a 27-point lead on EC — the Read More…

High School Football: North Olmsted at Olmsted Falls

OLMSTED TWP. — You would think a team that spends all year wearing orange and black would be pretty comfortable taking care of business on Halloween, and the North Olmsted Eagles certainly demonstrated their comfort with a steady and impressive 27-7 win versus rival Olmsted Falls. North Olmsted (7-3, 4-2 Southwestern Conference) entered the night Read More…

High School Football: Midview at Berea-Midpark

BEREA — The Midview Middies had many doubters at the beginning of the season. They spent the last 10 weeks turning them into believers.

The 10-0 Middies, ranked No. 6 in the latest AP Read More…

Elyria senior Brad Schneider missed the last two seasons with injuries, but he’s been a key contributor this year. KRISTIN BAUER | CHRONICLE

Perseverance and determination. It would be difficult to find two words to better describe Elyria High senior receiver Brad Schneider, who pulled in two touchdown passes in the final 1:47 last week to shock Stow 22-21 at Ely Stadium. The same two words work just as well for Elyria this season. The win over the Read More…
