Amherst keeps SWC title hopes alive

In the Morning Journal Game of the Week, Amherst used a 89-yard drive late in the fourth quarter, capped off by a Charlie Davis 5-yard run to defeat Olmsted Falls 17-16.

With the win, the Comets find themselves in a three way tie with Olmsted Falls, and Avon Lake, who destroyed Brecksville 39-10, for the Southwestern Conference title.

All three teams are now 5-1 in the SWC, and Amherst and Avon Lake will play each other Thursday night at Amherst. Olmsted Falls will travel to take on North Olmsted Friday night to see which two teams will share the SWC crown.

Elyria Catholic's playoff hopes came to crashing end as they lost a hard fought game to Trinity 15-13.
Alex Alicea had a monster game for the Panthers, rushing for 186 yards and two touchdowns. The lost all but eliminates the Panthers chances to make the playoffs, as they began the night 10th in Region 14 in Division IV.

Bay didn't let the cover of the Edge distract them as they handily defeated winless Vermilion 35-6.

Owen Dalton scored two touchdowns for the Rockets, who improved to 7-2 overall, 5-1 in the West Shore Conference.

All Bay has to do is defeat Avon, the defending WSC champions, to clinch its first-ever WSC crown.

Another exciting game took place at Rocky River as the Pirates defeated North Ridgeville in overtime 23-21.

Replacement kicker Mike Jones booted the 28-yard game-winnning field.

The Pirates are now tied with Bay, who they beat earlier in the season, atop the West Shore Conference.
