Published:

Napoleon and Bryan continue their ascent in the sixth weekly Associated Press Ohio high school football poll of the season.

The Wildcats (7-0-1) moved up to third from fifth in Division III this week after a big win in overtime over Perrysburg.

Meanwhile, unbeaten Bryan (8-0) is up to sixth from eighth, also in Division III, following its victory over Liberty Center.

Ottawa-Glandorf (8-0) is still No. 2 in Division IV, while Leipsic (8-0) stayed at No. 4 in Division VI.

Moving into the ratings this week in 13th in Division V is Archbold (7-1), following a big win over Patrick Henry.

The Patriots, ranked No. 7 last week, fell out of the D-V poll, as did Liberty Center, which was 14th a week ago in D-V, following its loss to Bryan.
