Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy football looks to be heading back to the postseason for the second straight year. 

According, the Royals’ 42-15 win at Loundonville Friday was enough to clinch a spot in the Division IV playoffs, thanks to its computer points ranking.

The Royals got off to a slow start against the Redbirds, as the game was scoreless after one quarter. CVCA still only lead 14-7 early in the third quarter before putting up 28 unanswered points in the third quarter to put it out of reach.

Running back Shane Douglas started the run with 1-yard touchdown plunge, while quarterback Michael Bevington had touchdown runs of 4 and 35 yards, along with a 45-yard flea flicker touchdown pass to Austen Williams in the spurt. 

CVCA (7-2) will look to lock up a home playoff spot next Friday, but to do so, it must defeat rival Manchester on the road.

Meanwhile, Walsh Jesuit had the upset of the year brewing early Friday night at Archbishop, as the Warriors were able to take a 14-0 after one quarter in Akron. 

The upset was not to be, however, as the four-time defending state champions scored 35 unanswered points on their way to a 42-21 win over the Warrriors.

Quarterback Cameron Mayes threw touchdown passes to Jack Romanini and Nick Reilman in the first quarter and Dom Grguric in third quarter to account for Walsh’s three touchdowns. 

The Warriors will close out the season by hosting Benedictine next Friday at 7 p.m
