The Shoremen opened the season on a sour note, dropping a 41-10 decision to the Avon Eagles.  Avon Lake ran the ball well enough, but the passing game was totally ineffective.  The real killer was the inability to stop Avon’s passing attack, as the Eagles threw the ball at will to wide open receivers.  The only really effective weapon for the Shoremen was quarterback David Winkel’s keepers on read option plays.  Winkel banged up his knee a couple of times, and Junior Jeremiah Campo finished the game at QB.

Avon had the ball first, and drove to the Shoremen 45, turning the ball over on downs when the Turner Keane stopped Eagle’s RB Gerret Choat on 4th & 1.  Avon Lake drove to the 15, but a false start followed a holding call moved them back to the 33, and they eventually had to settle for a 40 yard Alex Voloshen field goal with 4:59 to play in the quarter.  The rest of the half belonged to Avon as the Eagles went to the air and put up 27 straight points for a 27-3 halftime lead.  The Shoremen rallied to start the second half, moving the ball on the ground to the Avon 24, where Winkel launched a rainbow that Matt Gottschall took away from two defenders for the touchdown.  Anthony Thielman recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, but after driving to a 2nd & 5 at the seven, an incompletion and a sack forced the Shoremen to try another field goal, which sailed wide left.  That was pretty much it for Avon Lake, as the Eagles tacked on two more TD’s to account for the final margin.
