The Medina varsity football team celebrates their victory over Kenston with the MHS Musical Bees playing the alma mater.

The Medina varsity football team took care of business against Kenston at home under the Friday night lights. Adding to their 1-0 win against Lakewood, Medina played four consecutive quarters of passionate football controlling the scoreboard with a 70-14 win.

From the moment Kenston was set to kickoff, Medina had determination to get things done. Last year, Kenston came back to defeat Medina late in the game. Medina did not allow for any such opportunity Friday. The game was extremely one-sided in Medina’s favor. 

The offensive performance was unstoppable. In less than three minutes, quarterback John Curtis ran the football in for a fifteen-yard touchdown.

It did not stop there, running back Jimmy Daw put in work and scored four touchdowns in the first half. Daw’s pursue of the football did not stop by halftime,  he added one more touchdown to his night and played exceptional defense as well.

The score at halftime was 56-0.

Medina’s defense showed up to play. Jacob Wenzinger started a chain of great plays starting off the series with a sack. In just eight minutes into the first, the defense was able to cause three turnovers to get Bee’s offense back in the game to score.

Kenston tried their best to bounce back onto the board, but only got as far as two touchdowns to finish the game. It was an important effort from Medina to keep their record undefeated.

Today, they are up against Wadsworth, and all Medina fans are hoping to keep their triumphant season alive. The game is at Wadsworth High School and begins at 7pm.
