Football teams from the Chagrin Valley Conference took to the field on Friday night for the first time in the 2021 season with mixed results.

CVC teams finished 5-8 in non-conference games while Cuyahoga Heights beat league rival Berkshire in double overtime and Kirtland extended its winning streak to 42 straight games with a 50-6 win over visiting Harvey.
