CVC Football Roundup

All but two of the Chagrin Valley Conference football teams opened the 2019 season on Friday with mixed results.

Perry headlined the league’s opening night with a 63-54 win over Riverside, highlighted by quarterback Drew Schiano tying a state record with nine touchdown passes in a single game. Kirtland won its 10th straight Week 1 game and Geneva used a last-second touchdown to win at Madison for the first time since 1998.

In a CVC crossover game, Beachwood topped rival Orange for the first time in over a decade and Berkshire’s Lexi Boyk became the first female Badger to score in a football game in Berkshire’s win at Harvey.

CVC teams finished 6-8 against in non-conference matchups while six CVC teams competed against each other in crossover affairs.

Brooklyn plays its opener this afternoon while Cuyahoga Heights was not scheduled to play.

Here’s a look at how each CVC team fared:

CHAGRIN DIVISION

Streetsboro 55, Chagrin Falls 14

Streetsboro’s rushing attack proved to be too much for the Chagrin Falls defense to handle as the Rockets ran their way to a 55-14 win over the visiting Tigers on Friday. The Rockets’ offensive trio of Krys Riley-Richardson, Donovan Washington-Perdue and Maysun Klimak combined for six of the team’s seven rushing touchdowns in a wire-to-wire victory.

Conneaut 49, Edgewood 0

Conneaut outgained Edgewood, 518-123, in a 49-0 win. Edgewood quarterback Zach Winchell threw for 157 yards in the loss.

“They whipped us bad upfront,” Edgewood coach Jon Butchko told the Star Beacon. “We thought we could push the tempo on them and we could make them expand a lot of energy defensively. But we didn’t stack first downs or make plays on offense. Our skills (players) are going to be fine, but until we address things upfront we’re going to continue to have this same conversation.”
