High School Football: Medina at Brunswick

8-29 FBAJ21

BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick defense was glad to spend most of the first half on the field Friday against rival Medina because the Blue Devils offense was scoring so quickly.

High School Football: Wadsworth at Ashland

Mike Peticca The Gazette ASHLAND — Remarkably successful football coaches such as Wadsworth’s Greg Dennison can’t be expected to recall all their victories.
