Opening night upsets

Week 1 had its fair share of bad weather and also its fair share of upsets.
The biggest one happened in Amherst as Elyria stole one from the Comets 14-13.
Elyria senior Trynell Davis was the hero as he picked off Amherst’s Alex Basinski and returned it 50 yards with just two minutes left in the game to seal the victory.
This was a huge win for the Pioneers who won just two games in 2008. Amherst on the other must put the loss behind them and prepare to face a Midview to crushed Admiral King on the road 35-15.
The other upset happened in Avon Lake as the Shoremen fell to Maple Heights 28-16. The most surprising thing about the game was how Avon Lake played. They fumbled the ball eight times and lost two of them, very uncharacteristic for a Dave Dlugosz coached team. For a team that has high expections this was not a good start for the Shoremen, who will go on the road to face a tough Brunswick team next week.
Other surprising wins included Perkins over Bellevue 34-12 and Monroeville defeating Keystone 27-16.
