Following a 56-0 win over Swanton, Archbold moved ahead of Mechanicsburg for the No. 1 position in Division VI in the Associated Press Ohio high school football poll released on Monday.

The Bluestreaks (8-0) picked up 12 first-place votes and 159 total points, six points ahead of Mechanicsburg (8-0)’s three top nods and 153 points. Coldwater earned a pair of first-place votes and is 29 points back of Mechanicsburg in third.

Archbold can clinch at least a share of the Northwest Ohio Athletic League championship with a win Friday at Wauseon and can cap an unbeaten regular season on Oct. 22 against Patrick Henry.

Edon was 11th in Division VII, two points back of No. 10 Shadyside after defeating Cardinal Stritch to move to 7-1 on the season.

Of other area interest, Columbus Grove moved to eighth in Division VI while Otsego stayed pat at No. 3 in the Division V poll.

Defending D-IV state champion Van Wert rose one spot to seventh in Division IV while Toledo Central Catholic jumped three spots to seventh in Division II with its sixth straight win, a 28-7 rout of Toledo Whitmer on Friday.

Outside of Archbold’s outright move to first in D-VI, last week’s top ranked squads stayed the same with Lakewood St. Edward (D-I), Cleveland Benedictine (D-II), Chardon (D-III), Cincinnati Wyoming (D-IV), Kirtland (D-V) and Marion Local (D-VII) continuing their reigns.
