  1. Friday finals: Moeller 42, Elder 14 Lakota West 37, Mason 7 Springfield 54, Springboro 14 Trinity (KY) 34, St. X 7 Medina 52, Mentor 38 Marysville 49, Dublin Jerome 28 Gahanna Lincoln 38, New Albany 24 Wayne 49, Northmont 14 Hoban 42, St. Francis(NY) 15 TCC 45, Clay 7 Avon 63, Olmsted Falls 42 Massillon 42, Middletown (DE) 24 Winton Woods 28, Kings 23
  2. Games of the week: St. Edward @ Ignatius Moeller v. Elder Springfield v. Springboro Lakota West v. Mason St. X @ Trinity (KY) Medina v. Mentor Northmont v. Wayne Gahanna-Lincoln v. New Albany Hoban v. St. Francis (NY) Massillon v. Middletown (DE) Avon @ Olmsted Falls Winton Woods @ Kings
  3. My power poll headed into week 7: 1. Moeller - Handled La Salle and will be looking for the GCL crown this week as they play host to Elder. 2. Lakota West - Last weeks victory over Princeton looks even better now, and they followed it up with another shutout. 3. Hoban - Took home a rivalry win over Walsh Jesuit. 4. Massillon - Offense continues to roll as they put up 49 on a pretty good Fitch team. 5. St. Edward - Tune up game against Rock Creek Christian went as expected. Holy War awaits in what could be the final hoorah of the Chico era (although I think they could easily meet in the playoffs once again this year in what is a down R1). 6. Elder - The win over X was not surprising, but the complete and utter domination opened my eyes a bit. X continues to be a bit of a conundrum. 7. Winton Woods - Biggest test of the year awaits this week as they head to Kings. Kings beat them in the regular season last year, but they avenged it in the playoffs. 8. TCC - Blasted Lima Senior. Next three weeks against Clay (5-1), Whitmer (4-2), and Ross (5-1) will present the "toughest" stretch of their regular season. 9. St. Ignatius - Solid road win against River Rouge (MI). Wildcats were down a number of starters but jumped out to a 21-6 lead in the first half. Not scoring the remainder of the game was a little concerning. 10. Princeton - Showed that their 4-0 start wasn't all smoke and mirrors with win over a very solid Fairfield team. Very good chance to finish 9-1 now. Others: Springboro, Springfield, Fairfield, Centerville, Gahanna-Lincoln, Glenville, Avon, Medina, Cleveland Heights, Kings, Riverside, Wayne, Pick Central, Dublin Jerome, Austintown-Fitch
  4. They face what looks to be a pretty solid Springboro team next week and then a good defensive team in Centerville the following week. Might have to call in a welfare check for him if they lose one of both of those.
  5. Friday Finals: Elder 42, X 10 Moeller 47, La Salle 14 Springboro 21, Centerville 17 Fairmont 24, Springfield 21 Ignatius 21, River Rouge (MI) 14 Hoban 32, Walsh Jesuit 20 Massillon 49, Fitch 28 Lakota West 38, Hamilton 0 TCC 56, Lima Sr. 0 Winton Woods 63, Anderson 31
  6. Looking at their results so far they were unable to score against either Dillard or DeMatha Catholic in their first two games, but "only" gave up 35 and 26 respectively. They've won their last two against St. Marky's Ryken (MD) and Erasmus Hall (NY). The St. Edward offense isn't exactly a scoring machine, so I wouldn't necessarily say this a game where they can name their score.
  7. Yes, they play in two weeks. Kings is in the group of “others.” Oversight on my part.
  8. Week 6 games of interest: Elder v. St. X Fairfield v. Princeton Moeller @ La Salle Centerville @ Springboro Springfield v. Fairmont Ignatius @ River Rouge (MI) St. Edward v. Rock Creek Christian (MD) Hoban @ Walsh Jesuit Massillon v. Austintown-Fitch
  9. My power poll after week 5: 1. Moeller - Not surprised by a closer than expected game against rival St. Xavier. Despite the abortion that was the St. X defense on national TV against Loyola, they aren't that bad. 2. Lakota West - Very impressive performance against what was supposed to be a high-octane Princeton team. Not only did they holm them to 7, but the offense looks to be on the rise as well. Good enough to jump Springfield this week for me. 3. Springfield - Stomped Beavercreek as they should have. Next 3 weeks against Fairmont, Springboro and Centerville will be good tests. 4. Archbishop Hoban - Handled Ignatius as Mr. Football candidate Lamar Sperling put up 232 on the ground with 3 TD's. 4th could be too low for this Hoban team. 5. Massillon - Had to give the Tigers a big bump after continuously coming back against Ed's. Sure, Ed's did all they could to give Massillon life throughout this game, but have to credit the Tigers for making them pay for it. They have a great RB/WR combo in Willtrell Hartson and Ardell Banks, and this Slaughter kid at QB seems to bring his best stuff when playing Ed's. They can't get too high on this victory because Austintown-Fitch comes in at 5-0 and will be looking at this as their statement game. 6. St. Edward - They have come out on the positive side of the win/loss column the past few weeks despite not playing anywhere near the level they were ranked, but another week of error-prone football was too tall a task. 4 missed FG's, missing wide open receivers for would-be TD's, fumbling away the ball with a chance to put the game on ice. Can't beat good teams playing this way. We'll see if Lombardo can use this game as a turning point in the season and get this team to its full potential. 7. Winton Woods - The Warriors may very be be the class of D2 and a top 3-5 team in the state this year, but we won't really know until the post-season. 8. Elder - Panthers get a bump this week with a nice win over defending Kentucky champs Louisville St. X. 9. TCC - Holding steady in top 10 with another easy win. 10. Fairfield - Chance to move up this week as they take on a Princeton team looking to rebound. Others (no order): St. Ignatius, Centerville, Princeton, Gahanna-Lincoln, St. X, Glenville, Cleveland Heights, Austintown-Fitch, Wayne, Pick Central, Pick North, Avon, Medina, Painesville Riverside, Dublin Jerome
  10. Somewhere in the 15-25 range, perhaps a little higher. I’m not going to overreact to a close home loss to a rival.
  11. I’ll have to catch the replay. Had a feeling the trip down to Massillon could be problematic if they played the way they have the past few weeks.
  12. Iona played Akron Hoban a few weeks back. Got off to a 14-0 start, but then Hoban rolled off 43 straight for a 43-14 win.
  13. Week 5 top games: Hoban v. Ignatius Ed's @ Massillon Moeller @ St. X Princeton v. Lakota West Elder v. Louisville St. X (KY) Centerville v. Northmont Gahanna-Lincoln v. Pick Central
  14. Power rankings after week 4: 1. Moeller - Passed their biggest test of the season as the offense remained explosive against a good OLGC team. Defense has given up 31 to the two best teams they've payed, so that's something to keep an eye on. 2. St. Edward - Hung on for a narrow win over a game Elder team. Despite rushing for nearly 300 on the ground, 4 turnovers from the Eagles (including one inside the one yard line going in for a TD) kept this game from being a more decisive victory. Bullock continues to struggle through the air, but also had some drops from his receivers. Offense has to take the next step at some point as we approach the mid-way point in the season. 3. Springfield - Solid win over Wayne. I did expect more scoring from the Wildcats with the weapons they have on offense. 4. Lakota West - Shut out GMC bottom-feeder Oak Hills. Biggest test of the year for this loaded defense comes this week against a potent Princeton offense. 5. Winton Woods - More of the same. Holding steady at 5. 6. Hoban - Handled another inferior opponent in Withrow. Next up is St. Ignatius. 7. Ignatius - Euclid was just a speed bump. We'll get a much better gauge of where Ignatius belongs in the pecking order as they visit Hoban this week. 8. TCC - Destroyed Findlay. Don't see many challenges remaining on the schedule aside from week 8 against Whitmer. 9. Fairfield - Like Lakota West, their big test will be in two weeks against Princeton. 10. Princeton - Lot of buzz about this Princeton team down in Cincy. LW and Fairfield the next two weeks will give us the GMC pecking order. Big chance to leap up the power rankings. Others: Elder, Wayne, Pick Central, Pick North, Centerville, Northmont, Glenville, Massillon, Avon, New Albany, Austintown-Fitch, Cleveland Heights, UA, St. X, Gahanna-Lincoln
  15. In addition to the slow start, 4 turnovers didn't help. The offense needs to figure some things out. After looking pretty good in the first two weeks, Bullock has been pretty shaky as a passer the last two games. The run game will always be the bread and butter of the Ed's offense, but going over the top for the big pass plays when the defense cheats up has been a staple as well. Gedeon and Kilbane mentioned in the post-game interviews that there was some complacency this week in practice after a hard fought game against Cherry Creek. Luckily those two aren't complacent and accounted for 7 of the 8 sacks yesterday. I don't expect this team to go through the regular season unscathed. Too many quality opponents remain.
