Huron High School Wins Firelands Challenge Play-off...

...Moves to Championship Rounds with Edison, Willard

Sandusky, Ohio.  January 14, 2020 – Tuesday was big day for Huron High School as it won a major victory in the Firelands Challenge Play-off match.  It outscored its closest opponent by 19 points and earned its way into the Championship Rounds with Edison and Willard.

Only one point separated the teams from Norwalk (27) and Perkins (28), but Huron won in stellar fashion with 47 points.  The match opened with Current Events and the Huron team was the only team to score points in that category.  The next category was American Literature and Huron scored bonus points by answering a question first posed to Norwalk.  The third category was Vocabulary and Huron scored the only points in that category as well.

After getting off to a very good start, the team from Huron never looked back.  At the halfway point in the match, Huron led with 25 points to Perkins’ 17 and Norwalk’s 6.  Going into the Team Choice category, Perkins was only 10 points behind Huron.  Huron answered its question correctly while Perkins missed its question.  That resulted in a swing of eight points and Perkins fell to 18 points behind Huron.

Just one category, Lightning questions, gave Huron trouble.  It picked up only one point while Perkins had six points and Norwalk had four points.

The three teams in the Play-off match finished the regular season in third (Perkins), fourth (Norwalk), and fifth (Huron) place.  Willard finished the season in second place and Edison finished in first to go directly into the Championship Rounds.

With this victory, Huron’s team is now eligible to participate in the Championship Rounds of Firelands Challenge.  Huron will host the first match on January 28.  Willard will host the second match on a date to be determined and Edison will host the final match on February 5, 2020.
