HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) — A pair of familiar rivals square off on WKBN’s High School Game of the Week this Tuesday when Howland plays host to Warren JFK.

Last year’s 21-point win (67-48) for Howland snapped a 12-game streak in the series where the matchups were decided by 10-points or less.

One must think that this has all the makings of another fantastic finish.
