SOT Podcast Game of the Week : Barberton Magics vs Aurora Greenmen


By Sean Duffy

Aurora, OH– It may be week 6 in the Northeast Ohio High School football season, but our game of the week has a championship game feel. The undefeated Barberton Magics travel to take on reigning division champions the 4-1 Aurora Greenmen.  The winner of this game will control its own destiny for not only the American Division crown, but the all important playoff picture. It is sure to be a great game between two of the top three teams in the American Division.

Aurora was set to get the ball to open the contest but the Magics had other ideas with an onside kick which they were able to recover on the Greenmen 40 yd line.  Two plays later Magics Junior QB Chase Haywood connected with WR Derrick Vaughn for 39 yd TD pass.  Just like that Barberton jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead early in the first quarter.  On the ensuing drive,   Aurora QB Colin McNamara had the Greenmen on the move inside Magics territory, but a tenacious Magics defense stripped the Aurora QB and recovered the fumble stalling out the drive.  Barberton would go on a 78 yd scoring drive that ended with a 19 yd TD run by RB Kyree Young, Magics lead now stood at 14-0 as the 1st quarter came to an end.

The 2nd quarter was more of a defensive battle as both teams had drives stall out thanks to solid defensive efforts by both teams.  Barberton would break the log jam with a sensational 53 yds TD pass from Haywood to Young, the second TD for each on night.  Barberton led 21-0 with 6:19 left in the half. Aurora would finally find the end zone as they were able put together a 65 yd scoring drive. The drive featured a healthy dose of QB Colin McNamara who rattled off runs of 14 yards, 30 yards, and a 4 yard TD run to make the score 21-7 late in the half.

Barberton made a valiant effort to score before the half, but a missed 39 yd field goal attempt kept the score 21-7 at the half.

Barberton’s Kyree Young ripped off a 74 yd TD Run on the Magics’ opening drive, his third of the night.  Barberton led 28 -14  with 11:09 remaining.  Aurora would respond on the next drive when QB Colin McNamara would score on a 18 yd TD run, Magics led 28-14 with 8:14.  Kyree Young would score his fourth TD of the night this time on 2 yd TD plunge, Magics took a 35-14 lead.

As the 3rd quarter came to an end Aurora’s defense was able to stop the magics on 4th down.  Aurora ended the 3rd quarter trailing Barberton 35-14.

Aurora scored  to open the final quarter,  McNamara connecting with Senior FB Jack Arnold for a 43 yd TD pass.  a missed extra point made the score 35-20 with 11:49 left in the game.  But Barberton’s Kyree Young would find the end zone for the fifth time on a 58 yd TD Run, Barberton now led 42-20 with 11:38  left in the game.  Aurora looked for a quick score in the vertical passing game on the next offensive possession.   Barberton’s  defense was able to put relentless pressure on McNamara which led to a turnover on downs.  Barberton would be able to run the rest of the clock out to secure the 42-20 final.

The Aurora Greenmen fall to 4-2 over all and 2-1 in the conference, they were led by Colin McNamara who had 2 rushing TDs and passing TD. Aurora will look to rebound in Week 7 as they host Highland.

The Barberton Magics remain undefeated at 6-0 and 2-0 in conference. They were led by Player of the Game RB Kyree Young, 24 carries, 262 yds, 4 tds; 74 yds receiving, 1 TD.  The Magics will look to remain undefeated as they travel to take on Ellet in a non-conference match up in week 7.

One Thing to watch: North Royalton vs Highland

By Sean Duffy

Better late than never is a common and popular phrase, mostly used to explain or excuse the absence of punctuality. The phrase is never more appropriately used then when it is describing my weekly primer for SOT’s Game of the Week. Sure,  we are in Week 3 of the Northeast Ohio high school football season, and yes Sports on Tap has already given you the best coverage of the first two weeks of the 2018 season. However, we at SOT feel that it is our duty to get you properly prepared for our game of the week.  How do we do that?  Simple, each week we will give you  a little tidbit that we believe will be an important factor for each team’s performance, and perhaps maybe the difference between victory and defeat.

So without further adieu we present the one thing to watch for in this week’s game of the week between the North Royalton Bears (2-0, 0-0) and the Highland Hornets (1-1, 0-0).  A cross division match-up in the Suburban League with the Bears from the National Division travel to take on Hornets of the American Division.

First we start with the North Royalton Bears,  two impressive offensive performances against North Ridgeville and Parma, One thing to look for in this weeks game for the Bears is consistent play by  Junior QB Joe Marousek.  North Royalton is an improving team and is positioning themselves to be a force in the National Division, Marousek is the key factor in that quest.  Marousek’s play has been extremely efficient and potent, last week against Parma Marousek threw for 4 TD passes.  Highland’s defensive game plan should be to get to Marousek early and often  to limit his success down the field.  If Marousek continues to play at his usual high level, it will be another impressive outing for the Junior QB.

Highland has had a bit of a up and down season so far in 2018.  They were able to ride outstanding defensive  and special teams  performances to a week 1 victory against Brunswick.  In week 2,  they were defeated by  a combination of great defense from their opponent Medina, and crucial offensive miscues, turnovers, and inconsistencies.  One big thing to watch for from the Hornets is whether or not the offense can stay out of its own way and finish drives.   In the last two games Highland’s offense has had opportunities to score but have been able to convert those drives to any points on the scoreboard.  Last week against Medina, Highland was only able to convert 2 of 13 first down attempts, and only score 1 out of 4 red zone trips.  Highland’s Jake Rogers is a talented weapon on all sides of the ball, especially special teams, but his abilities are being nullified on offense by the inconsistencies of the offensive line play, penalties that stall or reverse productive runs, and costly turnovers in the red zone.  Highland has an opportunity Friday night against  a really good North Royalton defense to get back on track offensively and play the kind of football we have come to expect from the Hornets in the past few years.

I am looking forward to a great match up between these two teams. It should be a great night for Suburban League action.   Sports on Tap will be there to bring you all of the action as these two teams look to get victory before entering the conference portion of their schedule.  We will have video highlights and a recap of the game once it is completed, and we will have live updates on social media.

We will see you Friday night in Medina!

Three Keys to the SOT Podcast’s Game of the Week: Aurora Greenmen vs Highland Hornets

By Sean Duffy

It is week 7 in the 2017 northeast Ohio high school football season and the action is  starting to really heat up.  Teams are fighting for conference titles, playoff positioning, and for some to salvage a season for their departing seniors.  Our game of the week has two teams at both ends of the season spectrum set to collide on Friday night.

The Aurora Greenmen are coming of a 34-7 loss to undefeated Barberton in week 6,  Aurora is now 2-4 on the season and 2-1 in the Suburban American Division. The Greenmen’s hopes of making the playoffs are slim,  an opportunity to repeat as conference champs will require help form other teams. Aurora’s situation is that they  need to win out in order for both of those goals to be a realistic option.

The team they are facing  week 7 is the undefeated Highland Hornets, 6-0 and 3-0 in the Suburban League American Division. The Hornets are coming off their worst game yet in the 2017 campaign, a too close for comfort 14-7 win over non conference opponent Green.  The Hornets look to rebound in a big way and exact a little revenge on Aurora for last years loss, all in an effort to stay with Barberton as the only undefeated teams in the Suburban American Division.

Without further ado, I give you my three keys to our game of the week.

  1. Aurora’ s Defense needs it best performance of the season.  Highlands offense is capable of putting up points in bunches at any point in the game.  Aurora’s Defense needs to be focused on stopping the two headed monster rushing game that is Highland QB Matthew Earnest and RB Jake Rodgers. Offensively, Aurora will need other playmakers to step up and help out their star WR Gavin Blunt and back up QB Colin McNamara, who have carried the load for Aurora all season and opposing defenses know it.
  2. The Hornets need to limit turnovers and play sound fundamental football .  Highland had a big problem last week against Green and it was the penalties and turnovers.  Highland Turned the ball over 3 times in the first half, one turnover resulting points for the opposing team.  They also committed a myriad of penalties that stalled offensive drives  and extended drives for their opponent.  Luckily a great defense and just enough offense was able to win that game.  Another performance like that could cost the Hornets in this game.
  3. Highland’s star players need to continue their excellent performances .  Highland’s team is experienced, motivated and most importantly talented.  Matthew Earnest, Jake St. Louis, and Jake Rodgers are leading in all facets of the game.  Jake Rodgers specifically has been a breakout player for the hornets not only as a running back, but also as a receiver, defender , and kick returner.  Matthew Earnest and Jake St. Louis have proved a great passing combination for the hornets offense,  and St. Louis is making impact plays defensively.  It is crucial that these stars continue to shine and perform at a high level in this game.

It is clear that the talent and skill is firmly in favor of the Hornets. Aurora will need to play their best game of the year to pull off an huge upset on Friday night in Medina.

Three Keys to the Game(s) : Aurora vs Barberton; Hudson vs North Royalton

By Sean Duffy

At sports on tap we are always trying to bring you as much in depth coverage of the high school sports you love.   In that spirit we are unveiling a new weekly article, written by yours truly,  the article will highlight three keys to our game of the week. Think of this article as the High School Football equivalent to College Game Day, and think of me as a less handsome and less talented Kirk Herbstriet.

Lucky for you we have not one but two games that we will be covering this week and so that means a  double dose of knowledge.  So without further ado I present my three keys to the Game(s) of the Week for Week 6:

Aurora (2-3, 2-0) vs Barberton (5-0, 2-0) 

  1. Barberton’s offense needs to continue is dominating run through its schedule.  QB Zane Reis seems to be clicking with WR Garrett Turnbaugh , while the running game of Jeff Parker and Keye Thompson  are a effective weapon against opposing defenses.  Barberton will need to get  the same production in order to beat the Greenmen , and continue their march thru the American Division.
  2. Aurora’s Defense needs to create opportunities for its offense which they can capitalize.  Barberton’s offense does not allow much margin for error on opposing defenses, they can score on the ground or in the air seemingly at will, but if aurora’s defense can force the magics to become one dimensional, it could lead to some real opportunities for the Greenmen Offense to get going.
  3. Aurora ‘s offense needs to repeat its performance from week 5 specifically from QB Colin McNamara.  McNamara played very well against  Kent Roosevelt rushing for 93 yds and 1 TD along with a passing TD.  It is also crucial that the Aurora offense  get senior Evan Kasoulones the ball as much as possible as he has shown the ability to provide a spark to the Greenmen offense.

This  game  is a bit of a wildcard, in that it is hard to predict how the game will shake out, but i suppose the old adage will hold true, that is why they play the game. I will be at the game covering what is sure to be an entertaining show.

Hudson (4-1, 2-0) vs North Royalton (3-2, 1-1)

  1. Consistency on the part of the Hudson Explorers, Hudson has played solid football throughout the season and will need to continue to play that way on the road against North Royalton. QB Colt Pillay has been downright impressive both through the air and as a rushing threat.  If the Explorers can maintain the status quo it will be a long night for North Royalton.
  2. The North Royalton Defense has to limit the amount of big plays from the Hudson Offense.  As mentioned above the Explorers are a potentially explosive offense and are more then capable of putting up points in bunches.  In order for North Royalton to avoid having to play from behind, their defense needs to make big plays of its own and control the pace of the game.
  3. North Royalton’s young team needs to understand the gravity of the moment but not be consumed by it.  Hudson is a perennial playoff contender with experienced players who are used to having the pressure of a winning program on their shoulders.  North Royalton is a young team that has put together a really good early season, but now they have an opportunity to earn some big computer points ans solidify themselves in the playoff picture.  The Bears  need focus on the task at hand whether it be stopping the run on first down or converting a third and long.  If the young bears can maintain their focus on the task at hand they may be able to pull out a big victory.

The smart pick would be to pick Hudson as they have the pedigree and the experience to secure a victory.  The intrigue in this matchup lies with North Royalton, can they pull off a  huge victory?  Josh and Ed will be in North Royalton to find out on Friday night.
