7 things you missed from high school football Week 8

The eighth week of high school football in the Miami Valley included broken records and multiple games decided by late failed PATs.

1. Valley View avoided a huge SWBL Southwestern upset when the Spartans (7-1, 3-1) stopped a two-point try by Oakwood (2-6, 2-2) . Collin Genslinger scored three touchdowns for Valley View, which yielded 466 passing to Oakwood’s Brian Erbe.

2. Greenville (3-5) looked primed to tie Tippecanoe with a touchdown with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter, but the PAT kick failed and the Red Devils (6-2) held on for a 7-6 win. Elsewhere in the GWOC, Centerville topped Northmont 24-23 despite not converting any of its PATs.
