Saturday night roundup

Saturday featured three area teams who looked to take care of business at home on the gridiron in Week 6.

In Norwalk, St. Paul's Eric Schwieterman started his second game of the season and led the Flyers to a 55-0 thrashing of visiting South Central. Schwieterman finished 6 of 8 for 130 yards and a touchdown.

Dan Tract, who started at quarterback in place of an injured Schwieterman for most of the season, moved back to wide receiver and caught 4 passes for 109 yards, including a 55-yard touchdown pass from Scwieterman.

The Flyers improved to 6-0, and 3-0 in the Firelands Conference.

At Elyria, Elyria Catholic found themselves in a tight game with Villa Angela-St. Joseph to open North Coast League play.

The Panthers actually trailed 6-0, before scoring 21 unanswered points and held on for a 21-14 win.

Josh Russ had a big game for the Panthers as he scored on both sides. He caught two touchdown passes (39, 29) from Danny Reaser, and recovered a fumble on defense in the end zone.

Elyria Catholic raised its record to 5-1, and 1-0 in the NCL.

And in Lorain the Southview Saints tried to notch their second win of the season as they opened Lake Erie League play against winless Bedford.

The Saints could only muster 170 yards of total offense, and committed 6 penalties in their 27-8 loss.

The only bright spot for the Saints was Ricky Earl, who had 97 yards of total offense.

Southview dropped to 1-5, and 0-1 in the LEL.
