Not An 11-Man Game: Fostoria St. Wendelin, struggling because of few players all season, had just 11 healthy bodies available for Saturday’s Christian Athletic League of America game against the Battle Creek (Mich.) Apocalypse. So the school got approval from the league and an OK from the OHSAA to play eight-man football.

QB Austin Reinhart scored on runs of 90 and 26 yards and Zach Miller, one of the injured St. Wendelin players cleared to play just before the game, returned two interceptions for TDs as St. Wendelin earned its first win of the season, 38-14.


A Win, Finally: Van Wert won its 500th game — and first of the season — in defeating St. Marys Memorial 26-6 in a battle of winless teams; St. Marys Memorial needs a win this Friday against Lima Shawnee to avoid the first winless season in school history.


History Maker: Middletown Fenwick stopped a two-point conversion in the last minute to beat Kettering Alter for the first time ever, 35-34.


Effective Passing: Unbeaten Clarksville Clinton-Massie has rushed 313 times this season while passing just 45 times. However, 11 of those 45 passes have gone for TDs.


Like Father, Like Son: a driving rainstorm couldn’t slow defending D4 state champ Creston Norwayne in a 59-13 win over Jeromesville Hillsdale.

Jon Zimmerly carried 34 times for a school-record 324 yards, including TDs of 12, 15, 46 and 32 yards — in three quarters — to break the mark set by his father, Doug, of 292 yards in 1983.
