Lighting up the scoreboard

Friday night Keystone and Chippewa played one of the wildest games in Lorain County football history, combining to score 118 points, in the Wildcats 62-56 win. It has been reported that the game was the highest scoring game in Lorain County in over a century.

The highest scoring game in OHSAA history occurred back in 1923 when Medina defeated Spencer High School by a score of 165-0. The highest scoring game to involve an area team in the previous 100 years was back in 1920 when Norwalk found itself on the losing end of a 125-0 score against Toledo Scott.

Fast forward back to 2009, Scott was on the wrong end of another rather lopsided game this weekend, as Admiral King traveled to Toledo to put on a 58-0 beating on the Bulldogs. The Admirals' Luis Mendez took the opening kickoff back 80 yards for a touchdown and Admiral King never looked back while improving its record to 1-1.
Admiral King domianted on both sides of the football, gaining 383 yards of total offense and at the same time holding Scott to 59 yards.
The Admirals will look to contiue their winning ways as they travel to Avon Friday night for a battle of 1-1 games.
