(WJW) – It’s Week 7 of the high school football season and FOX 8 geared up to bring you the best coverage of high school football.
Crews were sent out to 20 games, but here are just a few we were looking forward to tonight.
It was a Great Lakes Conference showdown in Parma as Holy Name traveled to Valley Forge to face the Patriots.
The Green Wave came off a big road win at Lakewood last week in which they put up 28 points. The Patriots defense were giving up an average of just over 15 points a game.
In the end, Valley Forge won 24-21 in overtime.
It doesn’t get any bigger than this in the Greater Cleveland Conference. Undefeated and number one Medina traveled to Mentor to face the 3-3 Cardinals. This match-up was so big, it was a nationally televised game on ESPN2.
It was a rematch of last year’s Division I regional championship game won by Mentor 49-14.
Medina won 35-14.
Long-standing winning streaks were on the line in the Chagrin Valley Conference as undefeated Kirtland visited Perry. This game was voted as the Friday Night Touchdown Game of the Week.
The Hornets have won 27 straight CVC matchups dating back to 2016. The Pirates have won 36 CVC contests in a row dating back to 2015.
Perry’s streak came to an end as Kirtland won 30-6.
The race to the Suburban League title is heating up and tonight, Nordonia and Hudson had the chance to complicate matters even more. Nordonia was 5-1 as they traveled to undefeated Hudson to face the Explorers.
Both teams were being led by first-year quarterbacks.
In a close match-up, Nordonia came out on top, 29-28.
