The Blue Devils lose to Park Hills Central 0-7.
Maplewood Richmond Heights football, which before this weekend topped the area in small schools and the state in Class 2, went to Park Hills Central, and were topped. An article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch quoted MRH coach Rich Nixon as saying Park Hills limited the Blue Devils' possessions. “They did a good job of basically limiting our possessions, and we didn’t do a good job of finishing drives,” Nixon said. “Some of it is scheme. Some of it is mental lapses. But anytime we lose, it was my fault. I didn’t have us ready to go. When we win the kids do a great job and the coaches do a great job.” Read the rest of the article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch. MRH plays at Perryville (2-2) on Friday.

The team self-reported its MSHSAA infraction.
There will be no penalty for a Maplewood Richmond Heights football team infraction of a MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Activities Association) rule. The Blue Devils hosted Carnahan in a preseason jamboree, but a third team wasn't there, which made it an illegal jamboree by MSHSAA (Missouri State High School Activities Association) rules. The St. Louis Post Dispatch stated that MRH reported its own infraction to MSHSAA. MRH Director of Communications Brian Adkisson said MSHSAA leveled no sanctions against the team, in large part because it was self-reported. MRH (3-0) travels to Park Hills Central (2-1) for a 7 p.m. game on Friday. Brentwood (2-1) plays Cleveland (0-2) at Southwest High School at 1:30 Saturday afternoon. More football …

The rivalry game was pushed up to 5:30 to hopefully avoid rain from Hurricane Isaac, but thunder delayed it, and everybody got wet anyway.
Neither Maplewood Richmond Heights nor Brentwood were happy following Friday’s matchup at Brentwood, but MRH was happier. They won. “Anytime you can win a football game 33-2, and our guys feel as if they lost, that’s a good thing, because they know what we’re capable of, they have yet to realize it,” MRH head coach Rich Nixon said. Rain from the remains of Hurricane Isaac made it just wet enough encourage three fumbles for each team, an errant MRH punt, and the ball to slip through MRH quarterback Kahlid Hagens’ hands to give Brentwood a safety. Brentwood was in scoring position three times but was stopped on every opportunity. “I thought we’d fight a little harder. I just didn’t see this many gunshots to the foot,” Bentwood head coach …
