High School Football Week 6 Recap: Ups and Downs of Long Season Continue

It's crunch time, when teams must pull out a win

Lake Catholic Cougars            55

Holy Name Green Wave         0

The Green Wave lost its third consecutive game Friday night in persuasive fashion as the Cougars dominated early. Their lead became insurmountable by the end of the first quarter, 35-0. But the Cougar kept their intensity level high, not only preventing a Holy Name comeback, but by pitching a shutout also. Coach Mike Bell's Cougars improved to 5-1 on the season, and Richie Sanders added three rushing touchdowns to his already stacked season total.

Aurora Greenmen                    17

West Geauga Wolverines        14

The previously 5-0 Wolverines of West Geagua were dealt their first loss in the 2010 campaign by narrow margin. Sometimes, for every break a team doesn't catch, there will be a break of equal or greater value, and that break is exactly what landed in Aurora's hands late in the game. The Wolverines decided not to run out the clock approaching the half, and a costly turnover would put the ball in the Greenmen's hands at the Wolverines 30 yard line; eventually setting up a score. West Geauga scored the first fourteen, but allowed seventeen unanswered to host Greenmen.

Solon Comets                          48

Mayfield Wildcats                  14

The surging Comets tamed the Wildcats of Mayfield in Thursday night's 48-14 victory. Solon appears to be a true contender in Northeast Ohio, outscoring opponents 228-67. They have won all of their six games by at least ten points or better, overpowering the opposition in almost every phase of football. Physcially, Mayfield was no match for the high flying Comets. It was a disappointing loss for the Wildcats, coming off of a 34-0 blanking of Brush.

Strongsville Mustangs             34

Medina Bees                           14

This was the year that the Medina Bees started out 5-0 (for the first time since 1998) and still could not manage to defeat one of their arch conference rivals, the Strongsville Mustangs. For 22 games in a row Strongsville has topped Medina. This time, the Mustangs were without quarterback Austin Pritchard, and backup gunslinger Zach Sedivy helped move the offense along. Feature running back Matt Bianco tallied up 192 yards and a pair of scores, and Ray Hamilton also scored twice with four catches. This one was a mind boggling blow for Medina.

Parma Redmen                        27

Brush Arcs                              17

Parma added win number five to its resume Friday by holding off the Arcs rally. Brush has now lost back to back games, being outscored 61-17 in those two games. Like all good teams need to do, Parma took care of business at home, and looks to own some legitimacy. When Parma's defense allows less then twenty points in a game, they are 5-0. The one game they lost, they allowed 38 points to the Solon Comets.
