Colerain knocks off No. 1 Elder
The Crosstown Showdown is becoming an annual occasion to introduce the latest star quarterback. Last year, it was Elder senior Collin Carey sparkling in his first varsity start. Saturday evening, it was Elder's turn to watch.

Anderson 20, Lakota East 13
The time was right for a change, and Kenny Riddell was the right player for the transition.

LaSalle 31, Oak Hills 21
LaSalle delivered the message Saturday that it no longer will be the doormat of the Greater Catholic League South.

St. Xavier 15, Fairfield 9
St. Xavier threw seven different runners at the Fairfield defense Saturday night. Senior Thomas Perazzo finally found a hole.

Beechwood 21, Sheldon Clark 6
The Tigers got their 43rd straight win at Edgar McNab Field in Saturday's St.Luke Hospitals Champions Bowl game. But coach Mike Yeagle found little to like.

Moeller 10, Lakota West 7
Knowing how to win has been a big key in Moeller's success the past 25 years. And the Crusaders refused to lose Friday, rallying to an overtime victory.

Finneytown 28, North College Hill 14
This football season, Kellen Campbell is bigger, stronger and ready for opportunity. The same may be true for the Finneytown team he plays for.

Boone County 37, CovCath 12
Boone County tailback Timmy King says his best games are yet to come. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior played pretty well Friday, running for 252 yards and four touchdowns.
