Week 10 of high school football full of surprises

It was an exciting final Friday of the high school football season. A wacky West Shore Conference season stayed true to form on the season's final night. Co-leaders Rocky River and Bay lost allowing North Ridgeville, down by 14 at the half, to rally for a share of the WSC title. The Rangers' season seemed to be in shambles after week nine's late-second loss to Rocky River. Not only did the Rangers get a share of conference with a 18-14 win over Midview, as of midnight Joe Eitel's unofficial Harbin ratings have the Rangers in the playoffs as the eighth seed.

Football takes a lot of dedication. Bring winless and still playing hard takes a special kind of pride. Both Vermilion and Norwalk's seniors can leave their high school careers with their heads a little higher. Both 0-9 to start the night, the Sailors and Truckers faced overtime. Vermilion defeated Firelands 20-14 in overtime and Norwalk beat Upper Sandusky 27-21 in the extra session.

Avon Lake won the SWC outright as North Olmsted defeated Olmsted Falls14-6. Clyde won a share of the SBC with a 7-0 win over Edison. The Fliers will share the title with Perkins which beat Margaretta 29-18. Clearview won the Stars division of the PAC with 35-0 drubbing of Oberlin. As of Midnight Clearview sits in 8th on the unofficial Harbin ratings of Joe Eitel. But they have not clinched a spot as secondary points Saturday will decide the 8th and final spot. Elyria Catholic is also mathematically alive.
