Lakota West 10, Colerain 0
The Streak is over.
For the first time since October 2008, the Colerain Cardinals lost a Greater Miami Conference game. And the defeat came via their old coach, Tom Bolden, and his new squad, the Lakota West Firebirds.
Neither team scored in the first half of a game that featured 12 punts. The Firebirds’ junior running back, Aden Miller, scored the contest’s only touchdown in the fourth quarter, and their defense grabbed an interception with two minutes left to clinch the victory.
Princeton 33, Hamilton 28

Mason 24, Fairfield 12
The Fairfield Indians held a 5-3 third-quarter lead over Mason before the Comets rattled off three second-half touchdowns and continued their solid defense at Atrium Stadium.
Senior Nolan McCormick provided the spark, breaking free and finding the end zone for a 75-yard score to put the Comets ahead late in the third. They held on the rest of the way.
Sycamore 34, Lakota East 31

Badin’s junior quarterback, Landyn Vidourek, completed 11 of his 13 passes for 222 yards and four touchdowns.
Roger Bacon 34, Purcell Marian 0
This was the Corey Kiner show, and it was over in a hurry. Kiner, Roger Bacon’s LSU-committed running back, ran for a touchdown in the first and second quarters and saved his best for last. He closed the Spartans’ scoring with a 70-yard scamper to paydirt in the third.
La Salle 53, Elder 52
It was win or lose on the final play at the Pit.

Moeller 34, Bishop Hartley 17
The Moeller Crusaders brought the thunder in the second quarter against Bishop Hartley.
Or maybe it was the other way around?
Regardless, following a second-quarter thunder delay, Moeller stormed down the field and recorded 20 points in the period, three more than the Hawks scored all game.
Crusaders’ quarterback TJ Rotello starred, passing for 185 yards and rushing for 122 more. He tallied four total touchdowns.
