Nordonia traveled to Mayfield on Friday night on a mission to win their first game of the year. Unfortunately, mission not accomplished as Mayfield beat the Knights 51-24 as they celebrated their homecoming. Nordonia actually lead going into halftime 17-16, as the Knights played Mayfield evenly in the first half. But what seems to be a common occurrence, the Knights defense became porous in the second half, and Mayfield outscored the Knights 35-7. A blocked punt for Mayfield with 7:43 left in the third quarter resulted in a touchdown, making the score 30-17 for Mayfield. Nordonia did score one touchdown with 11:12 left in the game, cutting the Mayfield lead to 37-24. Mayfield tallied two additional touchdowns in the fourth quarter, to finish off the 51-24 victory. The Knights, now 0-3, seek to win their first game next Friday night at home against always tough Wadsworth. Game time is 7:30pm.
