Sports on Tap Game of the Week – #3 Olmsted Falls upends #2 Wadsworth

By:  Ed Dick

Brunswick, Ohio – The frigid air took twelve weeks to introduce itself to the high school football season in Northeast Ohio.  Visible breaths emanating through helmets, parents bundled up in the stands, and plenty of hot chocolate going around for this Division 2 Region 6 semifinal contest between the #3 Olmsted Falls Bulldogs and the #2 Wadsworth Grizzlies.  Wadsworth was attempting to set a school record for victories in a season, while Olmsted Falls wanted a potential rematch to avenge their only loss against #1 Avon.

Wadsworth’s offense hummed all season long behind the arm and legs of QB Joey Baughman.  Three plays into the game, Olmsted Falls DB Tyler Broski tipped a Baughman pass into the waiting arms of LB Brian Eiseman.  Eiseman returned the interception to the Wadsworth 27 yard line just 39 seconds into the game.  The Bulldogs, utilizing their patented triple-option offense, drove to the Grizzlies 8 yard line.  On fourth and two, head coach Tom Deluca eschewed a 25 yard field goal attempt and was promptly turned away by the Wadsworth defense.  Baughman got the Grizzlies out of trouble with a 30 yard run, but the Bulldogs were able to force a punt and got the ball back at their own 23.  Olmsted Falls took all of five plays covering 77 yards to take a 7-0 lead, capped off by runs of 38 and 11 yards by RB Jack Spellacy with 3:39 left in the first quarter.  Undeterred, Wadsworth countered with a three play, 58 yard drive ending in a 5 yard Baughman TD run to tie the game up at 7-7 less than a minute later.

The Bulldogs embarked on an eight play drive ending in a Luke Lombardo fumble at the Grizzly 3 yard-line, recovered by Wadsworth’s Clay Wagner.  Both defenses stonewalled each other’s potent offenses.  Wadsworth drove 66 yards to the Bulldogs 10 yard line with just three seconds left in the first half.  Ryan Larj came on to attempt a 27 yard field goal.  As the ball was snapped, the play was whistled dead as Wadsworth had a false start.  Larj had successfully split the uprights on the attempt, but faced a 32 yard attempt after the penalty was walked off.  Larj’s second attempt fell just short and the Bulldogs went into halftime tied 7-7 with the undefeated champions of the Suburban League National Division.

Wadsworth forced a three and out to start the second half.  Three plays later, Baughman found WR Jack Simmons at the Bulldog 3 yard line.  As Simmons was fighting for the end zone, DB Michael Howard forced a fumble recovered by DB Richie Nock, thwarting the drive.  Olmsted Falls continued to run the ball, getting out of Wadsworth territory before they were forced to punt. The Grizzlies took over on their own 8 yard line.  Brock Snowball put the ball on the ground, and Brett Eiseman recorded his second turnover of the game, recovering the fumble.  Wadsworth’s defense was up to the task, as FS Brett Randolph fended off two end zone passes from QB Teddy Grendzynski to WR Braden Galaska on third and fourth downs to stop the Bulldogs with just over four minutes left in the third quarter.  From the press box, Galaska appeared to have successfully completed his catch in the end zone, but was ruled out of bounds by the officials.  Wadsworth drove 92 yards in 9 plays, aided by a 15 yard unsportsmanlike penalty, and ended in a familiar combination of Baughman to WR Mitchell Blackburn for a 22 yard TD.  Ryan Larj’s extra point was good and the Grizzlies held a 14-7 lead.

On their next drive, the Bulldogs completed two timely passes, converting  both a 3rd and 7 via a 25 yard pass from Grenzynski to WR Josh Jaeckin and a 4th and 4 on Grendzynski’s 26 yard pass to Nock, taking the Bulldogs to the one yard line.  Grendzynski called his own number from one yard out for the touchdown and after Jake Politowski’s extra point, this game was tied at 14 with 9:47 left in the game.  After taking possesion at their own 30 yard line, two plays later, Baughman deftly navigated through would-be tacklers and found the end zone for a 70 yard TD run.  On the extra point attempt, the long snap bounced to Baughman and Larj’s extra point attempt was blocked.  Wadsworth led 20-14 with just over 9 minutes left.

Wadsworth’s defense bent but did not break over the course of the first three quarters, even with the loss of NT Cole Lamp.  However, the Bulldogs were able to slowly wear down the Grizzlies up front.  The Bulldogs completed just one pass on the ensuing drive, getting to the Wadsworth 16 yard line.  Facing a 4th and 3, Grenzynski tossed a jump ball up to Nock in the end zone.  The ball fell incomplete, but Blackburn was called for pass interference.  With new life, Luke Lombardo bullied his way into the end zone to tie the game at 20 with 3:28 left in the game.  Politowski’s extra point sailed through the uprights and the Bulldogs held a 21-20 lead over the undefeated Grizzlies.

With their backs against the wall for the first time all season, Wadsworth took over on their own 35 yard line.  Baughman called his own number on three straight runs, gaining 7 yards and setting up the play of the season.  On 4th and 3, Baughman found a familiar face in Blackburn with enough for the first down. Unfortunately, Blackburn could not get his feet in bounds as he was pushed to the sidelines and the Grizzlies turned the ball over with just under 2 minutes left in the game. The Bulldogs forced Wadsworth to expend their timeouts and ground out a first down.  Olmsted Falls was able to go into victory formation, pulling off the 21-20 upset of the Wadsworth Grizzlies, and advancing to the Division 2 Region 6 finals.

The Bulldogs successfully executed their game plan of keeping the potent Wadsworth off of the field, rushing 61 times over the course of the game. Wadsworth ran just 6 offensive plays in the fourth quarter. This was compounded with Wadsworth’s mistakes, including dropped passes, untimely penalties, and the missed extra point.  QB Joey Baughman ends his illustrious career completing 16 of 29 passes for 243 yards, 1 TD and 1 interception.  He was the game’s leading rusher with 19 carries for 172 yards and 2 TDs.  WR Mitchell Blackburn did his best to make up for missing WR Christian Szalay, catching 9 passes for 159 yards and a TD.  Wadsworth’s season ends with an 11-1 record, tying the single season records for wins.

Olmsted Falls two headed monster of RBs Jack Spellacy and Luke Lombardo, coupled with excellent decision making by QB Teddy Grendzynski, each produced a TD. Spellacy rushed 17 times for 102 yards and a TD while Lombardo rushed 27 times for 91 yards and a TD, his 21st of the season.  Credit the Bulldogs defense for containing Baughman and forcing three turnovers, mostly by keeping their linebackers in overage and spying Baughman to limit the frequency of big plays.  With the win, Olmsted Falls improves to 11-1 overall and will face off against #1 Avon in a rematch of their Week 2 battle, a 31-7 victory by Avon.

Sports on Tap Game of the Week: Three Questions to #3 Olmsted Falls Bulldogs vs. #2 Wadsworth Grizzlies

By:  Ed Dick

The Division 2 Region 6 Semifinals will pit the Southwestern Conference runner-up and #3 seed Olmsted Falls Bulldogs (10-1, 8-1) against the undefeated champions of the Suburban League National Division and #2 Wadsworth Grizzlies (11-0, 7-0). All playoff games will now be played at neutral sites, and this contest will be played at Judy Kirsch Field at Brunswick Auto Mart Stadium in Brunswick tomorrow night at 7:30pm.  Here are three questions for this matchup:

#1  Olmsted Falls runs a ball control offense.  Will the Bulldogs be able to win the battle up front for all four quarters and keep Wadsworth’s offense off the field?

#2 QB Joey Baughman and his myriad of weapons put 61 up on their first-round opponent, Sylvania Northview.  Can they maintain the momentum against an underrated Olmsted Falls defense?

#3  Both teams were able to outlast their opponents last week to get to this game.  Who will be able to make plays in the fourth quarter to keep their season going?

Rob Trautman, Josh Jeffi, and I will be covering the game live via social media using #SOTHSF on Twitter.  Check out video and the recap on this website after the game.  We will also provide updates for the Greater Cleveland Conference, Southwestern Conference, and Suburban League throughout the night!

Sports on Tap Game of the Week: Sylvania Northview Wildcats vs. Wadsworth Grizzlies

 

By: Ed Dick

WADSWORTH, OH – The lights peeked over the houses on the right-hand side of the street approaching the parking lot.  Art Wright Stadium was alive, ready for a Division 2 Region 6 quarterfinal contest between the visiting, seventh-seeded Sylvania Northview Wildcats (8-2 overall, 5-2 Northern Lakes Conference) and the undefeated champions of the Suburban League National Division, host and second-seeded Wadsworth Grizzlies.  The second season of high school football kicked off at 7:30pm with Wadsworth’s Ryan Larj teeing the ball up at the 40-yard line. Sylvania Northview returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2005 and wasted no time making their presence felt.

The Wildcats took the opening kickoff and proceeded to march 70 yards in 4 plays for a quick 7-0 lead on a 50 yard TD run by RB Dane Hullibarger. Wadsworth went backwards on their first drive, punting from their own 5 yard line.  Senior QB Brandon Leach took over at the Wadsworth 35, hitting WR Ryan Rempe for an 18 yard completion to the Wadsworth 16.  Four plays later, Hullibarger plunged into the end zone from 2 yards out and a 14-0 lead with 4:26 left in the first quarter.  Aided by a penalty and an errant kickoff, the Grizzlies got the ball on the Wildcat 49.  Five plays later, QB Joey Baughman found WR Mitchell Blackburn for a beautiful TD pass from 27 yards out, cutting the lead to 14-7.  The Grizzlies were able to hold the Wildcat offense, led by a 9 yard sack of Leach by DL Joey Fernholz. Baughman started the next drive at his own 34 yard line and went 66 yards in less than a minute, hitting Blackburn on a perfectly blocked screen pass for a 39 yard TD.  The first quarter ended in a 14-14 tie.

Sylvania Northview continued to play from ahead, as Hullibarger rushed for his third TD from one yard out. His TD was set up by a diving catch at the 1 by Rempe from Leach.  The Grizzlies answered back, utilizing a quick passing game en route to a 1 yard TD run by RB Brock Snowball.  Hullibarger countered with a 3 yard TD run, his fourth of the game.  A botched PAT snap led to K Luke Pawlak reversing fields to evade tacklers and finding Alex Sample for an improvised two-point conversion and a 29-21 lead.  Undaunted, the Grizzlies began to unleash their rushing attack behind Baughman and Snowball.  Baughman hit Blackburn for his third TD of the game from 6 yards out, then went right back to him for the two-point conversion and a 29-29 tie with 48 seconds left in the half.  The Wildcats had a first down at Wadsworth’s 41 yard line and two timeouts left.  Coach Doug Downing elected to go into the half tied with the undefeated Grizzlies instead of attempting to get into range for Pawlak.

The Wildcats were able to answer the bell in the third quarter after a couple of more Wadsworth haymakers, specifically Baughman’s 63 yard TD run to start the second half.  Leach calmly led Northview on a 75 play drive, completing 4 passes for 89 yards, culminating in a 13 yard TD pass to WR Camden Corron. However, Pawlak’s extra point attempt was blocked and the Wildcats trailed 36-35.  The Grizzlies kept the ball on the ground for seven of ten plays on their next scoring drive as Snowball found the end zone from 11 yards out and a 43-35 lead.  The Wildcats clawed back behind Leach’s 10 yard TD pass to Rempe over a Wadsworth defender. The drive was aided by an unnecessary roughness penalty via helmet-to-helmet contact between Snowball and WR Jarrett Batanian. Pawlak’s extra point was true, and the Wildcats cut the lead to 43-42. The score remained going into the decisive fourth quarter.

The Grizzlies started to find their groove with the rushing game in the third quarter.  Save for a 12 yard TD pass from Baughman to Blackburn to start the fourth quarter, their fourth TD connection of the night, the Grizzlies were able to wear down the Wildcats with the run game on the offense and a relentless defense.  The Wildcats, sensing they could not keep the Grizzlies out of the end zone, bypassed punting on their next three possessions.  Unfortunately, the Wildcats were right as Brock Snowball rushed for a one yard TD after the first turnover on downs, and Baughman completed an 11 yard TD pass to Blackburn after their second, and the game was blown open at 61-42.  Blackburn’s knockdown of a Leach pass attempt to Rempe ended one of those drives, showing how versatile his skills are.  Leach’s final attempt at a comeback was thwarted by Wadsworth’s defense with just over two minutes left in the game.  Wadsworth successfully ran out the clock for a 61-42 victory over a worthy Sylvania Northview team.

Sylvania was able to hang offensively for the first three quarters.  QB Brandon Leach, all 6 feet 7 inches of him, completed 26 of 32 passes for 338 yards and 2 TDs.  WR Ryan Rempe caught 10 of those passes for 144 yards and a TD and Camden Corron caught 7 passes for 78 yards and a TD.  RB Dane Hullibarger rushed 17 times for 117 yards and 4 TDs.  The Grizzlies had a little more in the tank led by All-Ohio QB Joey Baughman.  He completed 22 of 28 passes for 229 yards, 5 TDs and a two-point conversion and rushed 14 times for 191 yards and 1 TD.  WR Mitchell Blackburn caught 13 passes for 130 yards and 5 TDs and a two-point conversion.  RB Brock Snowball rushed 14 times for 123 yards and 3 TDs.

Sylvania Northview ends their season at 9-2. They brought a physical offensive and defensive line and were successful for three quarters.  The Wildcats acquitted themselves very well and their lively fan base had plenty to cheer about. However, it’s the resilient Wadsworth team that moves on, now at 11-0.  The Grizzlies will take on #3 seed Olmsted Falls next Friday night at a neutral site.

Sports on Tap Playoff Game of the Week: VIDEO- Tallmadge Blue Devils vs. Buckeye Bucks

By Sean Duffy

Medina, OH– It is playoff time in Northeast Ohio,  the teams have secured a postseason berth now look to take the next step on their quest towards a state championship.  It is time for coaches and players to focus in on the mantra of the late great Al Davis and just win baby.  Our game of the week is a match up in Division III Region 9  between the #8 seed Tallmadge Blue Devils (7-3) out of the Suburban League American Division, and the #2 seed Buckeye Bucks (10-0) champions of Stars Division in the Patriot Athletic League.  The contest pitted two teams predicated on running the ball and controlling the clock,  and hard hitting defenses that have not given up much in the way of points all year.  It was sure to be a great game in Medina County on a cold November Friday Night.

Tallmadge was first to get on the board as they started their opening drive from their 15 yd line.  The Blue Devil offense has been led all year by Senior running back Ty Shannon, and it was clear from the outset of this game that Shannon would continue to be the focal point. The Blue Devils marched 85 yards  and scored on a three yard touchdown run by Ty Shannon.  Tallmadge was out to a  7-0 lead halfway through the 1st quarter.  Buckeye’s first offensive possession started on their own 36 yd line but stalled at the Tallmadge 43 yd line, forcing a Bucks punt.  Great defense has been a calling card all year for the Bucks, the crowd, most importantly Tallmadge was reminded of that as the Buckeye defense forced a Blue Devils three and out on their next offensive possession. The first quarter ended with Tallmadge leading 7-0, But Buckeye was driving.

The Bucks offense has been led by their outstanding Senior QB Adam Fauver.  It was Fauver’s legs that got the bucks on the board thanks to a 5 yd TD run, a blocked extra point resulted in Tallmadge holding a 7-6 lead early in the second quarter.  After each team traded punts, Tallmadge got back on track thanks to their workhorse running back Ty Shannon, gaining 60 of the 69 yds on the scoring drive.  Shannon’s 1 yd TD plunge gave the Blue Devils a 14-6 Lead with 2:47 Left in the half.   Buckeye RB Justin Canedy would fumble the ball ball deep in Buckeye territory late in the half, setting Tallmadge up with an opportunity to extend their lead going into halftime.  The Buckeye defense again showed up with a great effort forcing a turnover on downs.  At the half Tallmadge led 14-6.

Buckeye got the ball to start the second half and marched 80 yards down the field, again led by Fauver who’s 28 yd run and 15 yd pass to Junior WR Anthony Watkins got the ball in the red zone for the Bucks.  Fauver would score his second rushing TD of the night again from 5 yds out, a successful 2 pt conversion would make the score 14-14 early in the 3rd quarter.  Buckeye’s defense forced Tallmadge to punt on its first offensive possession of the second half.  Buckeye again was marching towards the end zone, getting all the way down to the Tallmadge 24 yd line.  The Blue Devils defense allowed the Bucks to proceed no further as they stopped the bucks on 4th down as the 3rd Quarter ended all tied 14-14.

Tallmadge took over on their own 24 yd line to start the 4th quarter.  Buckeye’s defense was able to force a 4th and 7, but Tallmadge was able to extend the drive thanks to a successful fake punt.  Ty Shannon would haunt the Bucks Defense once again, ripping off a fantastic 72 yd run only to be stopped 4 yds from the end zone.  Shannon would score on the next play and  Tallmadge took a 21-14 lead with 10:26 left in the game.  The blue devils would add another TD to put the game out of reach, a 1 yd TD plunge from FB Mike Yamokoski, 27-14.  The Bucks attempt and scoring quickly was thwarted thanks to another fumble from Justin Canedy.  #7 Tallmadge upsets #2 Buckeye 27-14.

Buckeye’s season ends with yet another opening round playoff loss, the bucks have yet to win a playoff game.  The bucks end the season 10-1, and were led by senior QB Adam Fauver’s 2 TDs.

Tallmadge was led by player of the game Ty Shannon’s 3 rushing TDs, and over 200 yds of offense.  The Blue Devils move on to the Division III Region 9 semifinals where they will travel to take on St Vincent-St Mary.

Congratulations to both teams on a well played game!

Sports on Tap Game of the Week – Three Questions to Wadsworth and Sylvania Northview

By: Ed Dick

Borrowing from my cohort, colleague, and compadre Sean Duffy, here are three questions for the Division 2 Region 6 Quarterfinal contest between #7 Sylvania Northview Wildcats and #2 Wadsworth Grizzlies:

  1. Wadsworth has averaged over 50 points a game. Can Sylvania Northview either stop or keep up with the potent Grizzly offense?
  2. Wadsworth has not been in a defensive battle all season. If the Wildcats are able to corral QB Joey Baughman, RB Brock Snowball and WRs Mitchell Blackburn and Christian Szalay, how will the Grizzlies respond?
  3. This is the first playoff game for Wadsworth since 2014, when the current senior class were freshmen. Sylvania Northview is making their first playoff appearance since 2005. Who will overcome the early game jitters first?

Josh Jeffi and I will be covering this game, while Rob Trautman and Sean Duffy will be in York Township covering the Division 3 Region 9 quarterfinal between #7 Tallmadge and #2 Medina Buckeye!

Sports on Tap Podcast Game of the Week : Strongsville Mustangs vs. Brunswick Blue Devils

By Sean Duffy

Brunswick, OH– It is the final week of the 2017 high school football regular season, for the lucky few seniors their season will go on into the playoffs, but for most seniors they will be playing under the Friday night lights for the final time. It is a bitter sweet night for most seniors and teams as their 2017 campaign comes to an end.  Our Game of the Week features two Greater Cleveland Conference rivals.  The 5-4 Strongsville Mustangs who are out of the playoff hunt in Division 1 Region 1 but look to finish on a high note as they  travel to face their rival the 5-4 Brunswick Blue Devils.  The Blue Devils are still in the hunt for a playoff berth in Division 1 Region 2, but  records and playoff implications mean nothing in a rivalry game the only thing that matters is beating your rival and getting the all important bragging rights.

The Mustangs came out fast taking the opening kickoff down to the Brunswick 44 yd line, Strongsville QB Jony Major would score on a 35 yd TD run, Mustangs led 7-0 with 9:59 left in the 1st.  The Mustangs would score again this time on a 64 yd TD pass from QB Jony Major to  WR Jo Gillette Gillette, Strongsville took a 14-0 lead with 7:56 left in the 1st. The Blue Devils would fumble the ball deep in their own territory, Mustang LB Tommy Zacharyasz recovered the ball on the Brunswick 30 yd line, on the next play Major would hit Gillette for a 28 yd TD pass, Gillette’s second TD of the night. Strongsville out to a commanding 21-0 lead with 4:30 left in the 1st quarter. The Mustangs defense was able to force another Blue Devil punt, Jony Major would make  Brunswick pay with an 81 yd TD pass to TE Shaun Csire, as the 1st quarter ended Strongsvlle led 28-0.

Strongsville’s defense was just as dominating in the 2nd quarter, forcing yet another punt setting up another Mustang scoring drive, capped off with a 4 yd TD Run from RB Taylor Griffin . Strongsville’s lead swelled to 35-0 early in the 2nd quarter.  The turnover bug continued to plague the Blue Devil offense,  forcing a fumble recovered by DL Peter Schumacher on the Brunswick 13 yd line.  Joe Gillette would score his third  TD of the night on a 13 yd TD Run , a missed two point conversion attempt made the score 41-0 with 9:56 left in the 2nd qtr.  Brunswick’s offense seemed to get their bearings on offense as they drove the ball 79 yds and down to the Strongsville 1 yd line.  However the mustang defense would not allow the score forcing a turnover on downs.  At the Half Strongsville held a 41-0 Lead.

The Blue Devils got the ball to start the third quarter with a running clock, but the Strongsville defense forced yet another turnover, an interception of QB Cole Zamiska by Strongsville DB John Spragg on the Brunswick 34 yd line.  Strongsville was not able to capitalize on the turnover and failed on a 4th down Conversion.  At the end of the 3rd quarter the Mustangs led 41-0.

Strongsville began the 4th quarter with the ball down on the Brunswick 3 yd line threatening to add to their lead.  Brunswick’s defense was able to stop the mustangs from scoring forcing a turnover on downs.  Brunswick took over on their own 3 yd line as the running clock continued to run.  The Blue Devils were able to drive the ball out near mid field before punting away. Strongsville was able to take a knee and preserve a 41-0 blowout win of their rival.

Brunswick ends the season at 5-5 and 3-4 in the Greater Cleveland Conference. the loss washes away any chance of a playoff birth.

Strongsville ends their season 6-4 over all and 4-3 on in the Greater Cleveland Conference.  The Mustangs were led by QB Jony Major with 4 TDs on the night, earning himself player of the game honors.
