Wellington shocks Clearview

Week 4 of Friday night football featured many surprises around the area, but none were bigger than Wellington's 40-35 upset win over Clearview at Tom Hoch Stadium.

The Clippers held a 21-0 lead after the first quarter, but the Dukes went on to outscore Clearview 40-14 the rest of the way, including 12-0 in the fourth quarter.

Wellington rushed all over the Clippers defense as they finished with 314 yards on the ground, led by Clay Wright's 156 yards.

Not to be outdone were the Sandusky Streaks.

The Streaks traveled to Lorain for the second time in four weeks and hammered Admiral King 46-19 for their first win of the season.

Cordney Strickland rushed for 121 yards, while Zak Esposito threw a career-high four touchdown passes.

Avon Lake, who was supposed to be a state contender, find themselves at 1-3 after a 20-14 road loss to Olmsted Falls.

The Shoremen rushed for 214 yards, led by Mike Mansnerus' 132 yards, but the Shoremen are now in unfamiliar territory as they have now lost three regular season games for the first time since 2006.

Amherst went on the road and dropped its second game of the season to North Olmsted 21-7.

Keystone, fresh off its fourth quarter comeback against Firelands, went to Brooklyn and crushed the Hurricanes 41-20.

Corry Sprouse and Jimmy Reid combined for 283 yards and four touchdowns for the Wildcats, who are now 3-1, 1-0 PAC.

Brookside won its second consecutive game in a row with a 27-7 win over Luthern West.
Austin Tackett rushed for 148 yards while Rocky Radeff added 97 yards.

St. Paul, North Ridgeville and Perkins all improved to 4-0.
