AUSTINTOWN, OH – The Austintown Fitch Falcons are rolling into Week 9 of the 2022 season off arguably one of the best game in the state of Ohio last week, defeating Wadsworth 42-35 in a four-overtime thriller. The Falcons faced a lot of adversity throughout the game, including having to block a Wadsworth field goal in the second overtime to keep the game alive after a Fitch interception to begin the period.
This week’s opponent is a very familiar one for Austintown, as they will host the Boardman Spartans on Friday night. This will mark the 76th meeting between the two schools, with Fitch leading the all-time series 42-32-1. Boardman comes into the matchup with a record of 4-4, desperately needing a big win this week to keep their playoff hopes alive.
In this week’s coaches’ corner, Fitch Head Coach TJ Parker talks about last week’s thrilling victory, what to look forward to this week against Boardman, and more!
