Firelands Challenge Round V

Play-off Spots at Stake in Firelands Challenge

Edison Widens Lead

The Firelands Challenge team from Edison High School scored 70 points in its fifth round match to widen its lead in the competition.  However, the battle continues to see which team with hold down the fifth spot in the rankings. 

Huron High School was in fifth place after the second round.  It was replaced by Norwalk in the third round.  When Norwalk moved up to fourth place, Bellevue’s team took over fifth place.  After the most recent matches, Huron has moved back into contention for a play-off spot.

Teams finishing the regular season in third- through fifth-place enter into a Play-off Round.  The winner in that match goes on to meet the season’s first- and second-place finishers in the Championship Rounds.

Norwalk High School had its best match of the season with a 62 point performance against Western Reserve and Margaretta.  Norwalk and Edison capitalized on answering their individual team questions and lightning round questions to earn their victories.  Norwalk answered 7 team questions and picked up 8 lightning round questions.  Edison answered 8 team questions and 9 lightning round questions.

South Central turned in its best performance of the year in winning its match with Lakota and Port Clinton.  Willard maintained its strong hold on second place with a victory over St. Paul and Monroeville.  Perkins High School retained its third place position.

The final round of the regular season begins on Monday, December 9 at EHOVE.  The teams have one last chance to secure a spot in the Play-off Round.
