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:
- Wadsworth has averaged over 50 points a game. Can Sylvania Northview either stop or keep up with the potent Grizzly offense?
- 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?
- 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!
