DOVER Saturday is known as moving day in golf tournaments because players want to “move” themselves into contention.

Friday is moving night for the Dover High School football team.

COLUMBUS  Marlington and Garaway each moved up to No. 1 in their respective regions in the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s weekly football computer ratings, which were released today.

UHRICHSVILLE  The streak continues.

Will Dover’s streak continue, or will Claymont be streak busters?

The Tornadoes will look to extend their mastery over the Mustangs when the two teams meet in an East Central Ohio League contest at Claymont Stadium on Friday night.

There’s an interesting subplot to Friday night’s Dover-Claymont football matchup.

Not only is it an important East Central Ohio League contest for both squads, but it will be the first time Eric and Ed Henry will be coaching on opposite sides.

Despite Week 5 wins to stay unbeaten, McKinley and Marlington each dropped from No. 1 in their respective regions in the weekly Ohio High School Athletic Association football computer ratings. The Bulldogs (4-0) are rated No. 2 in Division I, Region 2, while the Dukes (5-0) are No. 2 in Division III, Region 11.

DOVER  Like last year, this one was over early.

Senior quarterback Mason Mamarella fired five first-half touchdown passes and the Dover defense was a force all night long as the Tornadoes routed Toledo Woodward 56-0 in a nonconference contest at Crater Stadium on Friday night.
