Thursday Night Lights: Beeler, Toledo propel Canal Winchester to happy homecoming


CANAL WINCHESTER -- Westland's Matt Bailey had a pair of touchdown runs but his Cougars couldn't hold off Canal Winchester Thursday Night as the Indians also got two touchdown runs from Tyler Toledo and the throwing of quarterback Jack Beeler to turn back the visitors, 24-14.

The Thursday Night Lights game was a homecoming celebration for Canal Winchester who scored first and never trailed in the OCC game.

Canal is trying to rebuild after a 6-34 run the last few years. New head coach Josh Stratton has the team off to a 3-2 start and was ironically coaching against his alma mater in Westland.

Westland, winless a year ago, dropped to 1-4 on the season.
