Hysteria Rewind – Week 7

Ravenna 28 Kent Roosevelt 14

It had the makings of a movie-type ending. Kent Roosevelt Rough Riders coach John Nemec could have earned his 200th win and it would be against the Rough Riders’ rival, the Ravenna Ravens. The win also would have put the team ahead in the 89-year-long series (which was tied at 43-43-2).

However, the Rough Riders could not get past the Ravens’ tough defense or senior running back Stephen Wilmington, who scored three touchdowns. Ravenna won by a final of 28-14.


Solon 27 Brunswick 0

Solon came to Judy Kirsch Field 6-0, and left 7-0 after defeating Brunswick 27-0. After a sloppy first half that included two touchdowns negated by penalties, the Comets ran wild behind Ohio University commit Kyle Hammonds in the second half. The Brunswick defense held strong in the first half, with Solon’s only points coming on a Chris Humphrey interception return. They fell apart after halftime however, giving up 20 unanswered points. The Blue Devils also struggled to move the ball against Solon’s speedy defense, and the combination proved lethal for Brunswick.

Kent Roosevelt quarterback Shimensky—and Kent State recruit—passed for 191 yards, but threw three interceptions and looked frustrated by Ravenna’s defense.

The Ravens are now 5-2 overall and 4-0 in the Portage Trail Conference Metro Division, and the Rough Riders are 5-2 and 2-2.


Strongsville 28 Mayfield 0

Mayfield came into their game with Strongsville under manned with 6 starters out. Sophomore Alex Brooks started at QB for the first time and had a tough night with 2 int and a lot of passes that missed his receivers. Strongsville started out slow but turned it on in the 2nd qt. Lead by RB Matt Bianco who had 96 yrds on the ground and a TD. Ryan Aske had 2 int’s and a receiving TD. Strongsville won easily in this one 28-0. This is the first time since 2004 that Mayfield had been shoutout at home.


Brecksville 25 North Olmsted 22

It was a close game this week as the Brecksville Bees hosted the North Olmsted Eagles. The Bees won over the Eagles by a score of 25 to 22. Marc Remy of North Olmsted ran 18 yards for the first touchdown of the night, but the Bees managed to block the extra point making it 6 to nothing, North Olmsted. Matt Galland then ran 13 yards for the Bee’s first touchdown allowing Brecksville to take the lead 7 to 6 the end of the first quarter. Within the first minute of the second quarter, Remy ran a 24yard touchdown allowing the Eagles to take the lead 13 to 7. With 2:45 left in the half Galland ran 11 yards to tie the game up at 13. The Eagles were then able to run the ball back close enough for Nick Stone-Weiss to kick a 31yard field goal putting North Olmsted up 16 to 13 at the half.

During the third quarter, Galland scored his third touchdown of the night, but once again the extra point was blocked, putting the Bee’s up 19 to 16 with less than 7 minutes left in the quarter. Remy scored the Eagles last touchdown of the night, but with a missed two-point conversion the Eagles only led Brecksville 22-19 with 4:55 left on the clock. The game came down to Brecksville’s last run down the field, and with 39 seconds left the Bee’s quarterback Tom Tupa ran a yard to score the winning touchdown. With 24 seconds left in the game, the Eagles tried to rally down the field but fell short. The Bee’s improved their record to 5-2 with the 25-22 win.

The two big players for North Olmsted were Marc Remy who had 145 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Michael Shoemaker who was 11 for 18 with 184 yards. Matt Galland once again dominated for the Bees with 35 carries for a total of 255 yards and 3 touchdowns. North Olmsted goes on to host Midpark next week and the Brecksville Bees will travel to Amherst to take on the Steele High Comets.


Medina 55 Nordonia 21

Nordonia struck first with an 8 yard touchdown run, but Medina scored 28 unanswered points led by Suggs. Wideout Walter Bailey also got into the act for Medina, catching 3 passes for 127 yards, including a 57 yard touchdown. Medina QB Mason Schreck was 4-9 for 134 yards and a touchdown. Donnie Eatmon led the Nordonia rushing attack with 17 rushes for 82 yards and 2 TD’s. Nordonia QB Zach Lewis was 13-18 for 142 yards and a touchdown. Medina’s record goes to 6-1, while Nordonia falls to 2-5 on the season.


Olmsted Falls 10 Westlake 0

Pregame turned out to be more exciting than the football game tonight in Westlake as the Demons hosted the Olmsted Falls Bulldogs at Lou Duchez Field. I knew, watching the teams warm up, that offense would be at a premium as players were slip slidin’ away during warm ups and just jogging around the field. A Demon even slipped as he got ready to crash through the “Cage the Bulldogs” sign at the beginning of the game! The Falls coaching staff was very complimentary of Westlake and their Top Man Mark Campo before the game and the chant of R-E-S-P-E-C-T could be heard from Demons players as they warmed up! Where’s ARETHA when needed? One of the OF coaches even noted to me “these are NOT your Dad’s Demons”…these are a tough bunch of kids! Here’s what you need to know about the game:

* Olmsted Falls won 10-0;

* Jacob Kutz is a one man wrecking crew for Westlake on D and Westlakes MVP;

* Jeremy Ortiz is THEE man for Falls on O and D followed closely by Zack Ferster;

* Zack Ferster kicked a 25 yard FG and caught a 12 yard TD pass for the ‘dawgs;

*The crusher  Mike Massaad, the Westlake QB, MUST scan the field. he had open receivers and should have been rolling out after the first series as his line could not protect him;

* The topper was a drive where Falls did not even score as in the 4th they ate up 6:42 with a 13 play 43 yard drive that ended at the Demons 14.

* Both bands were GREAT at 1/2 time!
