Edison, Willard in Firelands Challenge Finals...

...Perkins, Norwalk, and Huron Into Play-off Match

After six rounds of competition, the teams from Edison and Willard high schools secured their spots in the Championship Rounds of the Firelands Challenge competition.  Edison finished the regular season with 349 cumulative points; Willard finished in second place with 299 points.

Edison and Willard won their final matches.  Edison capitalized on answering bonus, toss-up, and lightning round questions.  Willard scored most of its points by answering its team questions and picking up bonus points from the opposing teams.

The Play-off Round will see three teams match up for the opportunity to play for the Championship.  Perkins High School finished in third with 259 points; Norwalk finished in fourth with 255 points; and Huron finished in fifth place with 240 points.  There is a pending appeal for an answer that could affect the scores slightly, but it will not affect the placement of the teams.

Norwalk outscored Perkins by 7 points in the final match, but Perkins led Norwalk by 11 points heading into the match to maintain a narrow lead in the final cumulative score.  Bellevue High School was in the hunt for a Play-off spot going into the final regular season matches, but Huron High School outscored Bellevue by 12 points in the last round to maintain its spot in the top five schools.  Teams winning their Round VI matches and their match scores are:

  • Willard (53)
  • Edison (51)
  • Huron (50)
  • Norwalk (43)
  • Bellevue (38)
  • Danbury (37)

The Play-off Round is scheduled to take place on January 14, 2020.  The cumulative scores for the three teams in the Play-off Round do not count.  The teams play a single match in a winner-take-all format.  The winner will face Edison and Willard in the Championship Rounds. 

The Play-off match will take place at EHOVE Career Center.  EHOVE has provided a neutral site for numerous matches throughout the season and was thanked for its support at each of the final regular season matches.
