The OHSAA football playoff continued on Saturday night with plenty of local teams in action.
In Division I, the Whitmer Panthers shut down the wing-T offense of Anthony Wayne, 20-0. The Panthers will play Canton McKinley next Saturday. McKinley defeated Southview 49-21.
In Division IV, Zach Conkle and the Eastwood Eagles ran all over Ottawa-Glandorf, 31-0. Speaking of running, no one was better at it on Saturday night than Genoa's Kyle Nutter. The junior running back ran for 413 yards and four touchdowns in the Comets' 37-14 win over Huron.
"It's definitely a big milestone, I'm happy about it and proud, but still, I can't do it without anybody else on the team and most importantly we got a win tonight," Nutter said.
Elsewhere, Findlay fell in heartbreaking fashion to Hudson, 35-28 in OT. Leipsic beat fellow BVC member Arcadia for the second time this season, 51-0. Ottawa Hills was shut out by Delphos St. John's 55-0, Tiffin Calvert defeated Edon 42-20 and McComb topped Edgerton 49-39.
