CINCINNATI - The Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown is well underway as it kicked off the Ohio high school football season once again. As always, there have been some great match-ups in this event.
On Thursday night, Elder and Middletown headlined the action at Nippert Stadium on the University of Cincinnati campus. The Panthers pounced early on the Middies, taking a 17-0 lead in the second quarter. The Middies battled back behind a kick-off return for a touchdown and a third quarter pick six moved the game to within just six points at 20-14.
The Elder defense held firm, however, and stalled a Middletown drive at the Elder 25 in the final minutes.
