(WJW) – Week 2 of the high school football season kicked tonight!
FOX 8 crews were out to some of the best match-ups in Northeast Ohio.
Friday Night Touchdown highlights a pair of teams that won their opening week’s games.
Aurora hit the road to take on Painesville Riverside.
Aurora fell behind Twinsburg 7-0 last week, but rallied to score 17 unanswered points to secure the Greenmen’s first win in Week 1.
Painesville Riverside’s defense was lights out last week, holding Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin to just 3 points in the Beavers’ 14-3 win.
This was a rematch of last year’s showdown in Aurora where Riverside won 34-21 on the road.
In the end, Painesville River won again, this time 31-7.
We had a clash of the Division 1 titans: St. Ignatius at Mentor.
The new era of Wildcats football didn’t go as planned last week, losing to Springfield 27-11.
The young Wildcats took on a Mentor squad that edged out Jackson last week, 26-21.
Mentor quarterback Scotty Fox ran and threw for a touchdown last week.
Iggy beat Mentor last year in a tight game, winning by 6.
This time, however, St. Ignatius won 16-14.
We’ll have highlights every Friday at 11 p.m. during Friday Night Touchdown on FOX 8!
