BIG TIME RUSH: Canfield QB Kimu Kim rushed 52 times for 497 yards (fifth highest in the state according to OHSAA records) and a state-record nine TDs in a 70-62 double-OT win over Niles McKinley.
REVERSAL OF FORTUNE: Trotwood-Madison’s season-opening game has been ruled a forfeit win for Springfield because of an academically ineligible Trotwood player. Rams AD Guy Fogle said Trotwood self-reported a possible rules violation to the Ohio High School Athletic Association. The Rams, who have played in three straight D-II state title games, are 3-2 and will be hard-pressed to make the D-III postseason.
NOTEWORTHY: Columbus St. Charles snapped what is believed to be the longest losing streak against one opponent in Ohio with a 36-0 victory over Columbus DeSales — DeSales had won 36 straight in the series dating to 1976; Fairfield is 6-0 for the first time since 1985; Coldwater won its 18th straight game over St. Henry in The Backyard Battle; Division VII No. 1 Maria Stein Marion Local lost starting RB Jacy Goettemoeller and Pittsburgh-bound QB Adam Bertke to injuries, but Aaron Nietfeld rushed for three scores and QB Dustin Rethman also ran for a TD in a 28-14 win over Delphos St. John’s; and Tiffin Calvert picked up the program’s 500th win with a 44-14 win over Carey.
