Each week during the 2012 high school football season, we will nominate four area games to receive extended coverage both on air, and online, on the Friday Night Touchdown webpage.

This week’s game has been chosen!  It’s Chardon at Maple Heights.

Students, staff, players, coaches, fans and FOX 8 viewers are invited to vote for their favorite school or game.

FOX 8 Reporter Dan Jovic will provide extended coverage of the winning game on Friday night.

Voting is now closed.

Here were this week’s nominees:

A. CANTON GLENOAK at EUCLID: The Golden Eagles are flying high after beating rival Massillon Washington for the second straight season, while Euclid’s talented defense recovered from a tough opening week loss to Mentor, to blank Cleveland Central Catholic, 44-0.

B. BENEDICTINE at BEDFORD:  The Bengals challenging road schedule continues, after losses at perennial playoff powers Boardman and Steubenville, while the Bearcats, who have outscored their opponents 108-14, hope their high-powered offense, will carry them to their first 3-0 start since 2002.

C. CHARDON at MAPLE HEIGHTS:  The Hilltoppers have been one of the area’s pleasant surprises thus far, winning their first two games by an average of 15 points, while the Mustangs haven’t missed a beat after losing head coach Todd Filtz to Canton McKinley. Maple has only allowed eight points through eight quarters this season.

D. SHAW at GARFIELD HEIGHTS:  The Red Ball Express lost a heart-breaker to Dover in week one, but rebounded in a big way, with a 60-0 win over Collinwood, while the Bulldogs lost a defensive struggle to Medina, before beating Berea last week.
