Here's a quick recap of Friday Night's games:

Huron 44, Vermilion 0: Huron senior quarterback Kyle Pisano passed for 173 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a score to lead the Tigers to a dominating season-opening victory at Vermilion. With the win, Huron brings home the traditional Win-Oar once again, having never lost possession of it since the rivalry returned to the schools in 2005. Monroeville 35, Keystone 8: Monroeville's senior running back Cory Long ran for 199 yards and three touchdowns in just two and a half quarters of action to lead the way for the Eagles in the opening match of the 2011 campaign. Long is one of just two returning starters from the 2010 season. Black River 48, Western Reserve 26: With this win, Black River ended a streak of 18 consecutive non-conference losses that dated back to the 2005 season. The Pirates ran for more than 400 yards and had three runners with 100-yard games. Oak Harbor 23, Holland Springfield 10: Oak Harbor's junior running back Mark Konieczny had 33 carries for 205 rushing yards and finshed with 295 all-purpose yards to lead the Rockets to victory in their season opener. The Rockets controlled the line of scrimmage for much of the game, gaining 288 yards on the ground while Springfield managed 155. Port Clinton 28, Woodmore 12: Port Clinton senior Andrew Leidheiser's first start at quarterback paced the Redskins to a season opening win as he score three times. Port Clinton ran 55 times for 354 yards, led by Diante Laurel (21 carries, 190 yards). Margaretta 14, Willard 7: Margaretta's defense answered the call twice in crunch time as it made two goal-line stands in the final two minutes. Craig Galindo caught a 62-yard TDĀ pass and Ben Singer ran for one score. Tiffin Columbian 26, Clyde 13: The Tornadoes came into the game with questions, but they answered them, beating Clyde for what is technically the second straight game. The two teams met in the second round of the Division III playoffs a year ago. Ryan Meyer and Brad Smith ran for touchdowns for the Fliers.
