St. Edward to take on St. Ignatius on Saturday for bragging rights, as well as a shot at the state title.
Tim Hudak takes the football rivalry between St. Edward St. Ignatius high schools seriously. He knows just about everything there is to know about the rivalry. The Cleveland resident has actually written a book — “The Game of the Year” — on the subject. The story of the St. Edward and St. Ignatius football rivalry begins in 1952. The teams took from a break from each other from 1959 to 1970 — there were too many fights. Hudak, a 1964 St. Ignatius graduate, will be in the stands on Saturday when the teams meet in the second round of the state playoffs at Brunswick Stadium on Saturday. The Eagles lost the first time around this season, 20-17. This will be the 49th meeting between the two teams. St. Ignatius holds the edge, with a 27-20-1 …

St. Edward escapes Tigers — and overcomes penalties — for a 28-14 victory.
CLEVELAND HEIGHTS — After opening their Division I first round playoff game against Cleveland Heights with a 25-yard run off right tackle by Dwayne Aaron, the St. Edward Eagles followed a simple recipe: lather, rinse, repeat. Over and over. The Eagles (8-3) ran 39 times and passed only once in a first half that separated the defending state champs from the upstart Tigers (9-1) by a score of 21-6. Cleveland Heights kept St. Edward on their toes using the outstanding quarterback play of Bryce Jones, who also played admirably at cornerback, and pinned the Eagles back deep as the Tigers’ punter several times. In the end, it was St. Edward pulling away with the win, 28-14. “They’re a good team, and any way you can get from point A to point B to…

Cleveland Heights School District offering a shuttle service to the contest.
The first-round playoff battle between St. Edward High School and Cleveland Heights High School is expected to be quite the attraction Saturday night.

The Cleveland Heights-University Heights School District expect about 3,000, said Angee Shaker, communications director for the district. Then, factor in the student performers and players. The district considered hosting the game elsewhere and contacted John Carroll University, Shaker said. But ultimately the Heights High football players made the decision. "It came down to what the players wanted. Coach Rotsky had a heart-to-heart with our players, and they wanted to play at …
