This season, both teams through two games were averaging 38 points per game and while their defenses have held their opponents under 14 points a game, it was expected to be another tight one in Avon.

In the end, Avon came out on top, 24-16.

On the east side, the young Solon Comets headed to Shaker Heights to take on the Red Raiders.
Solon was looking for its first win of the season, while Shaker Heights was looking to go 3-0 after shutting out Brush last week, 36-0.

Shaker Heights pulled through with a 40-21 win over Solon.
