High school football by the numbers: Week 1

The opening weekend of high school football left no shortage of top performances and standout moments. Five Top 15 teams scored more than 50 points, and some games around the area came down to the wire.

The area's longest active winning streak ended when St. Vincent Pallotti fell to St. Mary's Ryken, ending the defending MIAA B Conference champion's run of 10 straight wins. The new longest win streak is short, but there's a lot of season left.
