(11-20-21) Kirtland has extended their consecutive game winning streak tonight to 54 games beating South Range 38-15. The win keeps the Hornets as the #1 team in the US…but the win also moves them into a tie for 2nd place all-time with Versailles.
The Hornets need three more wins to tie Delphos St. John’s for the Ohio All-Time consecutive win streak. That is the good news…but should they finish the season (State semifinal and State Final ) as the D V State Champion, they would have to wait until August of 2022 to win #57 and tie the record.
The Hornets next Saturday will play the Western Buckeye League’s Ottawa-Glandorf (11-3) in a D V State Semifinal game. The Titans beat Elyria Catholic 31-6 tonight.
