North Royalton and Brecksville met Tonight for the Battle of the Shoe. The game started off with both teams defense holding it down. It wasn't until late in the first quarter when North Royalton QB Joe Marousek connected with #81 Adam Barret to take the lead 6-0.
Going into the second, the Brecksville Bees started moving the chains. They were able to find the end zone thanks to QB Joe Labas and tied the game at 6-6.
The game was tied until less than a minute left in the half when Marousek kept the ball and scored on the quarterback keeper. North Royalton entered the half leading 13-6.
At half time both bands put on a crowd pleasing show and entertained with hits from the 80s and Disney.
In the second half it was all North Royalton as they were able to find the end zone twice thanks to Marousek.
Final score was North Royalton 27, Brecksville 12. Thanks to his performance, our Most Valuable Player went to Marousek. He and Head Coach Nick Ciulli will be honored at the next Browns home game.
Of course no Friday night is complete without great volunteers. We met Emily and Julia, two students on the golf team for Brecksville. They volunteer their time each Friday in order to earn money for their golf team.
Congratulations again to North Royalton on winning this week's High School Game of the Week!
