The Week 5 showdowns among the top four teams in the Super 7 poll lived up to the billing as No. 1 Pickerington Central needed overtime to beat Hilliard Davidson 17-14, and No. 2 Pickerington North fell to Dublin Coffman 31-28. This caused some shuffling in the poll as Coffman went from tied for third to No. 2, North fell to No. 4 and Davidson went from a third-place tie to fifth. Jumping a couple spots was Reynoldsburg, which is No. 3. The poll has another couple of marquee games this week as North travels to Reynoldsburg and No. 6 Hilliard Bradley plays at No. 7 Dublin Scioto.
