The Avon Eagles’ defense came to play on Senior Night, as they topped Amherst, 35-7, at Avon Stadium while picking up their second straight Southwestern Conference title.

“It felt good to come out here and win a conference championship,” Avon coach Mike Elder said. “It was nice to come out and be able to shut down one of the leading rushers in the area. Our defensive coaches took it as a challenge.”

The Eagles, who improved to 9-0 on the season and 8-0 in conference play, held the Comets’ offense to 101 yards of total offense, after coming off a Week 8 win over North Ridgeville, 19-14, where they allowed Rangers’ running back Shomar Williams to rush for 220 yards.
