Malvern Hornets Team News

Postseason football is nothing new for Malvern players. The Hornets have been to the playoffs six years in a row.

None of this is familiar for Fairport Harbor Harding. The Skippers will be in the playoffs for the first time since 1991 when they travel to Malvern on Friday night.

For the second straight season, seven area high school teams are moving on to a Week 11 game.
