Blue Jays to face No. 8 Tigers

For the second week in a row, the Blue Jays face a ranked team as St. Edmund travels to No. 8 Oberlin in a key District 4-1A battle.
Last week, St. Edmund (5-1, 3-0) stunned No. 8 Elton, 27-21 in overtime to move into the district tie with the Tigers (5-1, 3-0).
“It was a big win for us,” St. Edmund head coach Andy Hargroder said. “I was pleased to see that our guys kept fighting.
“We got out to a good lead (21-7 at halftime) and let that dwindle but we didn’t give up – they are learning how to win.”
