In a battle of Medina County heavyweights, the Wadsworth Grizzlies extended their regular season winning streak to 14 games with a comfortable 28-7 win over the Medina Battling Bees in WKYC.com's High School Football Game of the Week.
Senior receiver Carson Risher picked up right where he left off following last week's 266-yard performance, catching two first half touchdown passes from quarterback Trey Shaffer. Sophomore Tyler Montgomery also caught a TD to ice the game for the Grizzlies in the fourth quarter.
While Chris Kelly did have a second quarter score to make it a 14-7 game, mistakes doomed the Bees throughout the night, including back-to-back interceptions by QB Ryan Fischer (with one right by the goal line).
