Flag On The Play: In the game between Nelsonville-York and Wellston, which N-Y won 33-6, there were 25 combined penalties (11 personal fouls) for 258 yards — not including those that were declined.


Skid Ends: Doylestown Chippewa had lost its last 29 games. Head coach Kevin Wolf was 0-26 as the Chipps’ head coach.

On top of all that, Chippewa trailed 16-7 late in the second quarter of Friday’s game against Apple Creek Waynedale.

But then, something happened. The Chipps scored the game’s next four touchdowns on the way to a 38-22 win. Their last win was in Week 7 of the 2009 season.


Change Is Good: Williamsport Westfall is 6-1 despite losing its coach. Former Westfall and Circleville coach Keith Downing replaced the previous coach who lost his teacher’s license after admitting to an addiction to painkillers early in the summer. Downing has guided the team in the past four games.


Team Records: Mike McKenzie ran for a school-record 315 yards and four TDs on 28 carries, Steve Treadway kicked a school-record 52-yard field goal and J.J. Napierkowski set school marks for most yards receiving in a season (749) and career in Salineville Southern’s 40-9 win over Wellsville.


Like Father, Like Son, Like Brother: QB Tom Tupa hit WR brother Tim Tupa — sons of former NFL and Ohio State QB and P Tom Tupa — for three TDs in Brecksville’s win over Amherst.
