It’s game on for the Avon High football team!
After wrapping up the school’s fourth straight West Shore Conference championship last weekend, the Eagles host Toledo St. Francis de Sales (8-2) this Friday, Nov. 8, at the Avon Stadium behind the Middle School.
Avon not only cruised to a 6-0 West Shore Conference record, but also posted a perfect 10-0 regular season campaign.
Coach Mike Elder congratulated the team after Friday’s 34-7 win at Bay. “You have had a target on your back every game this season, and you rose to the challenge each time,” he said in the post-game team huddle. “I couldn’t be prouder of you!”
Cheers and celebrations then broke out on the field as special t-shirts commemorating ‘4 in the Row’ were handed out to the jubilant players. The team also received the West Shore Conference trophy.
The road now gets tougher as Avon finished the regular season ranked third in the state in Division II behind Zanesville and Loveland before last Friday’s games.
Here are the teams in Avon’s regional playoff bracket (all games to be played this Friday):
8 Avon Lake (8-2) at 1 Medina Highland (10-0)
7 Toledo St. Francis de Sales (8-2) at 2 Avon (10-0)
6 Perrysburg (8-2) at 3 Akron Ellet (10-0)
5 Macedonia Nordonia (8-2) at 4 Massillon Washington (8-2)
