SANDUSKY — Despite losing its match to Norwalk by one point, Edison extended its lead in the standings with its cumulative score.

Edison missed its team choice question and Norwalk picked it up on a bonus try to edge out the current champions in their match at Clyde.

Meanwhile, Huron High School used the highest score in the second round of Firelands Challenge matches to move into a tie for fourth-place in the standings.

The Huron team answered both toss-up questions and capitalized on 11 bonus points to win its match with Danbury and Western Reserve.

The competition has been close through the early rounds of the competition. Round II saw five teams post scores in the fifties. Monroeville and Willard have moved up in the standings. Two teams are now tied for fourth place – Huron and Margaretta. Two teams are now tied for fifth place – Norwalk and Perkins.

The Round II matches and scores:

• Norwalk 54, Edison 53, Clyde 13

• Willard 51, South Central 39, New London 25

• Huron 58, Danbury 37, Western Reserve 23

• St. Mary 38, St. Paul 37, Lakota 31

• Monroeville 50, Sandusky 28, Port Clinton 27

• Perkins 45, Margaretta, 41, Bellevue 39
