Too close for comfort: Oberlin Firelands edges Napoleon

It wasn’t exactly Lewis & Clark in uncharted territory, but Oberlin Firelands had to survive its share of thorns while shedding Napoleon 21-20 in an Ohio high school football matchup.

Napoleon’s offensive output in the final quarter kept the fat lady from singing until the very end, but the effort still wasn’t enough as Oberlin Firelands pulled away for good.

Oberlin Firelands broke in front at the beginning of the fourth quarter with a 21-14 lead over Napoleon.

Each offense authored its Rip Van Winkle imitation, napping through a barren second quarter.

The start wasn’t the problem for Napoleon, who began with a 14-7 edge over Oberlin Firelands through the end of the first quarter.
