In this week's power rankings, we saw one team go soaring up and another team come crashing down, along with everything in between. We'll dive into that and more in this week's report.
Can't Touch This
Indian Valley got a 58 - 13 win over Minerva last week, and a key reason for the win was senior Caden Hostetler. Hostetler rushed for 123 yards and four touchdowns. In fact, our algorithms singled out Hostetler as one of the top players in the power rankings for the week.
Movin on Up
It was onward and upward for Avon Lake this week as the team hoisted itself up 27 places in the power rankings -- the largest rise of the week -- after their most recent game. It was a close one, but it sidestepped Avon for the 31 - 28 win. Avon Lake and Avon were a much more even match than Avon Lake's previous opponent, giving the fans a heck of a game.
Can't Stop Won't Stop
It was another outing, another win last week for the team with the longest stretch of success (four consecutive games). Steele breezed past North Ridgeville with a final score of 38 - 9. The win boosted Steele a satisfying eight spots in the power rankings.
Next Week's Big Game
It should be quite a contest when Washington (ranked 10th in OH) and Montclair (28th in NJ) face off this week. This will be the second home game in a row for Washington. Given their high-scoring efforts against their previous opponents, we'll see how far they can run the score up this week.
