Maybe we should have known that the Harvest Moon being on display during Friday the 13th would yield extraordinary results.
Although Week 2 of the high school football season was highlighted by marquee games, including a few rivalry matchups, it was also notable for upset wins in some cases.
Teams such as Lakeview find themselves at an unfamiliar spot at 2-0, while others such as Many are staring upward for the first time in a while from a 0-2 hole.
Here's what I thought was interesting during Week 2 of the football season.
Tioga gained a measure of revenge Friday against Pineville with a 33-20 victory by forcing six turnovers en route to its third win in the series over the last four years. The Indians were helped offensively by Kenneth Ravare's five catches for 140 yards and Blake McGehee's three touchdown passes, but O.J. Pemberton had a night with three interceptions. While the Tribe will have to clean up their penalties, a 2-0 start and a win against a rival is what anyone could ask for.

In the Iota Bulldogs' season-opening victory against Iowa, senior running back Luke Doucet picked up from where he left off a year ago as he rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns.
"The line did good," said Doucet, whose Bulldogs will play host to Welsh at 7 p.m. on Thursday. "I couldn't have done it without them. They opened up the holes and coach called the good plays."
For his efforts, Doucet has been named The Daily Advertiser's Football Player of the Week.
"The guys upfront did a good job of blocking," Bulldogs head coach Josh Andrus said. "But there were runs where he made something out of nothing. So the key to his success was a combination of his work ethic and the offensive line."
As a junior, Doucet had an exceptional season as he rushed for 2,367 and 26 touchdowns on 224 carries to help the Bulldogs reach the Class 3A semifinals.
