STORY: North Royalton Edges Olmsted Falls 33-27 in OT.

North Royalton versus Olmsted Falls

By Rick Shultz

Olmsted Falls, OH- A second season was all the twenty-two seed North Royalton Bears needed to get going as they find themselves heading into the quarterfinals of the Division 2 Region 6 OHSAA playoffs. The Bears entered the playoffs with an 0-6 record and last week traveled to tenth seeded Amherst Comets and shocked them in triple overtime 48-45. It was their first playoff win in school history. Last night the Bears just needed two overtimes to knock off another Southwestern Conference team on the road when they defeated the sixth seeded Olmsted Falls Bulldogs 33-27. 

North Royalton and Olmsted Falls were once non-conference opponents for an 8-year stretch from 1994 to 2001 when the Bears were in the Pioneer Conference. The Bulldogs won seven of those eight meetings with the Bears ironically winning their only meeting in the 1995 season, 10-6 in overtime of course. 

The game started out fast as the Bears received the opening kick and only took five plays to score as 6’2” 205-pound Junior running back Zadan Abuhamdeh broke free for a 61-yard touchdown. The Bulldogs needed just three plays as Sophomore running back Jack Pinchek made some nice cuts and outrunning the defense for a 51-yard scamper. A missed extra point had North Royalton leading 7-6. After a three and out and a short punt, Olmsted Falls looked to be locked in as they ran the ball five times and hit paydirt on a 25-yard run by another Sophomore Rocco Conti. This time the extra point by Senior Drew Kanaba was good, and the Bulldogs lead 13-7. Olmsted Falls defense held North Royalton once again to a punt, but this time the Bears defense held and got a stop that they needed to halt the momentum. 

The second quarter was all North Royalton as the Bears took over at their own 40 after a nearly blocked punt. They then methodically marched down the field as it took 12 plays to go 60 yards where Abuhamdeh punched it in from the 1-yard line and the extra point was good by Sophomore Aleksandar Rajcevic making it a 14-13 advantage. The Bulldogs next possession was stopped after nine plays at the North Royalton 37 where they were forced to punt. North Royalton needed just three plays this time as Junior quarterback Mike Piazza found Senior wide receiver Omar Abuhamdeh for a 68-yard strike bring the score to 20-13 after the extra point was missed. Falls tried to answer as they were driving at the end of the quarter getting to the Bears 23-yard line but getting stopped on three consecutive plays to force a 39-yard field goal attempt. The Bears made sure the Bulldogs could not capitalize as several defenders got through and blocked the attempt.

The second half opened with Olmsted Falls driving down the field as Senior running back Andrew Parkowski powered his way into the endzone from the 3-yard line and with a good point after, the score knotted up 20-20. It seemed the Bulldogs had the edge in the half as they drove down the field on their next two drives but turned it over on downs at the Bears 25-yard line. Their next possession they drove the ball down to the North Royalton 25-yard line once again where they missed the go-ahead field goal with 1:26 remaining. As their offense only mustered 71 total yards in the half, the Bears defense refused to give up any big plays and kept their team in position to win. 

North Royalton got the ball to start the first overtime where they took just four plays to score as quarterback Piazza snuck it in to take the 27-20 advantage. Olmsted Falls’ Conti evened up the score at 27 with a 6-yard run of his own, his second of the game. 

The Bears’ defense was certainly the difference in the game as they intercepted Olmsted Falls Junior quarterback Charlie Ciolek after forcing them into a third and long and put their offense in position to make their second upset in consecutive weeks. The Bears needed just four plays as Piazza found Matthew Vansteenlandt for a 7-yard touchdown. The Bears win 33-27 in OT.

The 2-6 Bears will travel to 6-1 Avon Lake next week to take on the Shoremen who are coming off a 30-7 winner over Wadsworth. The Bears find themselves as one of the final 32 teams left in the Division 2 playoffs and will also be looking to go 3-0 against the SWC in this postseason.

SOT Playoff Coverage: Wadsworth Grizzlies vs Avon Lake Shoremen

Wadsworth vs Avon Lake

By Sean Duffy

Avon Lake, OH- It is the second round of the Division II OHSAA High School Football playoff tournament. Region Six of Division II is always a highly competitive region featuring hard hitting action. This week’s spotlight playoff game is no different as #14 seed Wadsworth travels to face #3 seed Avon Lake. Wadsworth (2-4) advanced to the second round with a win over Westlake in the first round, Avon Lake earned a first round bye. Each of these teams look to keep their playoff journey on track with a win and trip to the Division II Region 6 Quarterfinals .

The First quarter was a battle of defenses as each team’s defense would force a turnover on downs. The turning point came on a Shoremen interception of Wadsworth QB Mitchell Evans deep in Grizzlies Territory. Wadsworth was able to keep the Shoremen out of the end zone, settling for a 32 yd field goal from Avon Lake kicker Owen Wiley. at the end of the first quarter Avon Lake led Wadsworth 3-0.

The Shoremen would find the endzone early in the second half as RB Gage Duesler would get loose for a 66 yd touchdown run, the successful point after gave Avon Lake a 10-0 lead with 11:34 remaining in the first half. Wadsworth would respond with a touchdown on their next offensive possession when QB Mitchell Evans connected with WR Garrett Labus for a 28 yd TD , Wadsworth cut the lead to 10-7 with 8:42 left in the first half. Avon Lake’s Owen Wiley would add another field goal, this time from 34 yds to give the Shoremen a 13-7 lead as the first half came to a close.

Avon Lake got the ball to start the third quarter and put together a drive that went 75 yds and took over seven minutes off of the clock. Avon Lake QB Micheal Corbo would cap the drive off with a 1 yd TD plunge. that would be the only points scored, at the end of the third quarter Avon Lake led 20-7.

Avon Lake QB Michael Corbo’s TD plunge!!

Avon Lake would again put together a drive that ate up a lot of time early in the fourth quarter, Owen Wiley’s 36 yd field goal would increase the Shoremen lead to 23-7 midway through the fourth quarter. Wadsworth QB Mitchell Evans would be picked off twice in this quarter, the second being the most costly as Shoremen DB Nathan Cikalo would take the interception 53 yds for the TD. That interception proved to be the final nail in the Wadsworth coffin as they lose to Avon Lake by a final score of 30-7.

Avon Lake is now on to the Division II Region 6 Quarter Finals against #22 seed North Royalton. North Royalton defeated #6 Seed Olmsted Falls in 2OT in the second round.

Week 7: North Olmsted outlasts Midview 48-45 in their First Round Playoff Matchup.

By Rob Trautman

North Olmsted, OH- If you don’t like offense, stop right here. This game produced excitement, big plays, and a first round matchup that scored 93 points between the two teams. On this night North Olmsted would make history by winning their first ever post season win 48-45.

In the first quarter we got a glimpse at what this night could be like. With 9:51 left in the first quarter North Olmsted quarterback Anthony Guercio started the scoring with a 43 yard touchdown pass too wide receiver Jared Kelley.

On the next series Midview quarterback Ethan Surdock was intercepted by Eagles defensive back Eric Wasen who took it to the house from 24 yards out. Quickly, North Olmsted jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead. Midview would answer back as quarterback Ethan Surdock would connect with wide receiver Connor Awad from 17 yards out. The score was 14-7. After a North Olmsted punt, the Middies would drive down the field and settle for a 27 yard field goal from kicker Kaiden Koch who hit a 27 yard field goal.

After 1 quarter of play North Olmsted led Midview 14-10.

In the Second quarter Midview would turn the ball over on an intercepted pass. The Eagles would put a nice drive together that would lead to a 5 yard touchdown run by Jio Rodriguez. The extra point was no good and North Olmsted led 20-10.

After a fumble by the Middies at 4:38 in the second quarter, the Eagles would drive into Middies territory where they would try for a 27 yard field goal. The ball sailed wide left. Midview would take over and establish a drive that took almost 3 minutes off of the clock. That would lead to a Surdock 3 yard touchdown run. The Middies cut the Eagles lead to 20-17 before half. North Olmsted wasn’t done as they got what looked to be a big score by Guercio to his wide receiver Macguire Savarino for 47 yards, but they got caught with an illegal man down field that wiped the touchdown away before half. North Olmsted would lead 20-17 at halftime.

The third quarter would start and it was the Eagles who would score first as Guercio would run it in from 4 yards out. North Olmsted now took a 27-17 lead.

The third quarter went back in forth with a flurry of scoring. Below are highlights from the third quarter. Midview captured the SportCenter Top Play with Surdock connecting with his wide receiver Bryce Newton. Take a look!

North Olmsted quarterback Anthony Guercio would run a touchdown in from 1 yard out to give the Eagles a 34-24 lead in the 3 quarter with 4:57 left.

The third quarter would end with Midview trailing North Olmsted 34-31.

The fourth quarter would start with both teams trading big play after big play. Neither team wanted to give up in this game. North Olmsted would strike on a 2 yard touchdown run by Guercio who extended their lead back to 10 points with a 48-38 lead with 7:25 left.

Once again the Middies were down but not out, scoring on a 1 yard touchdown run by Surdock that would cut the Eagles lead to 48-45.

Finally we saw some key defensive plays. Midview’s defense got the stop they needed to give them the ball back and a chance to tie or take the lead with 2:24 left in the game. The Middies would get a great drive, deep into North Olmsted Territory, but with :21 left in the game defensive back Daniel Davis would seal the deal with an interception that would give the Eagles their first ever postseason win.

Eagles win, 48-45 over the Middies in the First Round Playoffs! North Olmsted improves to 2-4 and will now face the Avon Eagles in the next round of the playoffs. Avon won the first matchup in Week 4, 42-14. Midview falls to 1-6.
