SOT Podcast Game of the Week : # 7 Maple Heights Mustangs vs #2 Avon Lake Shoremen

By Sean Duffy

Avon Lake, OH– The days are shorter, the weather has turned chilly and that can mean only one thing, it playoff time in northeast Ohio high school football.  Our game of the week focuses on the Division II Region 6 quarterfinal match up between the #7 Maple Heights Mustangs (7-3) travel to take on the #2 Avon Lake Shoremen (9-1).

The first quarter was a showcase of great defensive play from both teams.  Neither offense could get much going offensively, both teams would force the other to punt on their first two offensive possessions. Avon Lake’s defensive effort paid off with a blocked punt that set the Shoremen up on the Mustangs 4 yd line.   On the next play Shoremen RB Mason Wheeler would score on a 4 yd TD run, a made extra point made the score 7-0 with 3:50 remaining.  Maple Heights was on the move late in the quarter and was looking to even things up, at the end of the 1st quarter Avon Lake lead 7-0.

Maple Heights would get on the board early in the 2nd quarter, thanks to an electrifying 34 yd TD run by QB Delonte Hall, a failed 2 pt conversion made the score 7-6 with 10:16 remaining in the quarter.

Avon Lake would respond with 66yd scoring drive that was capped off with 2 yd TD run by RB Gage Duesler, a made extra point  made the score 14-6 with 8:50 remaining in the half.

Avon Lake’s defense would force a Mustang punt that set the Shoremen up at midfield.   Three plays later Avon Lake QB Michael Corbo connected with WR Matt Oehlstrom for a 25 yd TD pass, a made extra point extended the Avon Lake lead 21-6 at halftime.

Maple Heights got the ball to start the 2nd half , but they did not have it for long as Avon Lake’s DB Tanner Russell picked of Mustang QB Bryshaun Haskin, setting up the Shoremen deep in Mustang territory.  Gage Duesler would score his second TD of the night, this time from 2 yd out, a made extra point made the score 28-7.

The Shoremen defense would again impose their will on the Mustangs as they racked up numerous sacks and tackles for loss.  At the end of third quarter the Shoremen led 28-7 and were threatening to add to their lead.

Maple Heights defense would hold the Shoremen to a 28  yd field goal from K Harry Hebert, the score now 31-6 early in the fourth quarter.  Avon Lake would score again getting a 45 yd TD run by WR Jake DePaul. That score would put the game on a running clock and out of reach for Maple Heights as Avon Lake would come away with the 38-6 victory.

Maple Heights ends their season with a disappointing loss  and their final record stands at 7-4 overall.

Avon Lake moves on to the Division II Region 6 Semifinal where they will face #3 Wadsworth. The Shoremen were led by player of the game RB Gage Duesler who had 2 rushing TDs on the night.

SOT Podcast Game of the Week: Berea-Midpark Titans vs Midview Middies

By Sean Duffy

Grafton, OH– Week 9 in the 2019 Northeast Ohio High School Football season is here. The penultimate week before the season finale, is crunch time for a lot of programs whether it be to lock up a conference title, garner some much needed playoff points, or try to end a season on a positive note. Our Game of the Week features the Berea-Midpark Titans (2-6, 2-5) travel to take on the Midview Middies (4-4, 3-4). Midview currently sits at in the #12 in the Division 2 Region 6 , according to joeeitel.com. The middies have an outside shot at the playoffs but will have to win out and get some help from other teams. The Titans are looking to string together back to back wins for the first time all year. It is sure to be a classic Southwestern Conference showdown.

The Middies received the opening kickoff, and the Titans defense was out to establish itself early forcing an early Middies punt. Midview’s defense was equal to the task as well as they were able to stifle the Titans offense on their opening possession. Much like a heavy weight fight, the first quarter was more of a feeling out session for each team on the offensive side of the ball. The scoreless first quarter came to an end with the visiting Titans driving into Midview territory.

Berea-Midpark would waste no time getting into the end zone with a 13 yd touchdown pass from Titan QB Luke Devins to WR DeAngelo Borders, made extra point made gave the Titans the lead 7-0 with 10:00 remaining in the half.

Midview would not trail for long as WR Joseph Bratkovich would take the subsequent kickoff 92 yds for a touchdown, a made extra point and just like that score was tied 7-7 , with 9:45 left in the half. The scoring would settle down and penalties would increase late in the half for both teams. Each team would trade punts as the half began to come to an end. Midview’s defense would come up big with a interception by DB Zac Gill deep in Titan territory. A few plays later Gill would score on a 1 yd TD run, after a made extra point, Midview led 14-7 with 1:41 left in the half.

The Titans would then put together a fantastic scoring drive of 77 yds in just over a minute and half. Scoring on a 5 yd TD Pass from Devins to RB Brandt Eckerfield, a made extra point tied the score 14-14 as the first half came to a close. Berea-Midpark would receive the second half kick off.

Much like the 1st quarter the third quarter was a non scoring affair that was rife with big defensive stand.  The biggest being by Midview who stopped the Titans on 4th down and goal from inside the 1 yd line.  The middies were able to flip the field and bring the third quarter to an end still tied 14-14.

Midview would open the final quarter with a big time sack that forced a Titan punt, that is when Zac Gill returned it 52 yds and set the Middies up on the Titan 10 yd line. Middie RB Tyshawn Nelson would rumble 10 yds for the score on, howWr ever a missed extra point give Midview 20-14 lead with 10:57 left in the game.

The Titans would start their drive on their own 36 yd line and drive all the way down for a score, capped off by a 15 yd TD pass from  Devins to WR Devin Johnson.  a made extra point made the score 21-20 with 8:07 Remaining in the game.

Both teams would trade punts.  Midview would start on their own 17 yd line looking to respond.  The Titan Defense would answer the call with a huge interception by DB Jack Arnold  set the Titans up in Midview Territory.  The Titans would capitalize on the turnover when WR Jon Lyons would score on an 11 yd TD Run.  A completed extra point made the score 28-20.

That would prove to be all the points needed for Berea-Midpark to earn their third win of the year, the final score 28-20.

Midview falls to 4-5 over all and 3-5 n the Southwestern Conference.  They will look to end their season on a high note on the road in week 10 at Westlake.

Berea -Midpark improves to 3-6 overall and 3-5 in the Southwestern Conference.  They will look to finish out the season strong as they play host to North Olmsted.  The Player of the Game is Jack Arnold who came up with a crucial interception.

So long from Midview.

SOT Podcast Game of the Week: Bay Rockets vs Rocky River Pirates

 

By Sean Duffy

 

Rocky River, OH- We have three weeks left in the 2019 High School Football regular season. Our game of the week features a Great Lake Conference between the Bay  Rockets (5-2, 4-2) and the Rocky River Pirates (5-2, 4-2).  Both teams have identical records, but very different roads to travel in the Division III Region 10 playoff race.  According to the unofficial standings on joeeitel.com, Bay currently sits at #6 in the region, Rocky River sits at #11.  A win for each will increase their chances of making it into the top 8  at the end of the year, while a loss makes that road to the playoffs much more difficult.   Conference rivals, playoff implications for each team, what more could you ask for in Week 8?

Bay got the ball to start things off, it was clear from the beginning that they were going to utilize the run game, specifically RB Nick Buttari.  Buttari would carry the ball all of the drives 65 yds including the final two yards in to the end zone for a touchdown.  The Rockets were out to a 7-0 lead with 9:07 remaining in the quarter.  Rocky River would put together their own 65 yd scoring drive, they would also rely on the ball toting skills of their RB Tommy Bebie would score from 3 yds out.  A missed extra point made the score 7-6 in favor of the Rockets.  Both teams defenses would settle in and not allow another point to be scored in the quarter.

Rocky River seized momentum  as the second quarter began, stopping the Rockets on fourth down.  However they would cede that momentum back to Bay as QB Braedon Spies was intercepted and then returned for 46 yds  to set up the Rockets deep in Pirate territory.  Four plays later Bay QB Logan LaMere would plunge into the end zone for a 1 yd TD, a missed extra point made the score 13-6 with 5:37 remaining in the half.   Rocky River was beginning to find some offensive rhythm and was set up in Rocket territory, however Bay would stop the pirates on a 4th and inches and take over on downs.  Two plays later Rockets QB Logan LaMere would connect with WR Cullen Gergye for a 66 yd TD Pass. a made extra point made the score 20-6 with 2:09 remaining in half.  The pirates would run their two minute offense to perfection, going 71 yds in less that 1:30.  Rocky River would score on a 36 yd TD pass from QB Braedon Spies to WR Owen Bebie , the two would connect again to convert the two point attempt.  As the half came to an end the Rockets led 20-14, Rocky River would receive the 2nd half kickoff.

Rocky River started the half on their own 20 yd line and QB Braendon Spies would lead the rushing attack along with RB Tommy Bebie to get the ball all the way to the Rockets 3 yd line.  Bay’s Defense would not let the Pirates invade any further, holding them to a 20 yd field goal by Tommy Bebie, to make the score 20-17 with 6:51 remaining in the quarter. As in the first quarter the defensive units for each team were able to impose their will  and not allow any further points.  As the third quarter came to end Bay led 20-17.

The Rockets would the ball to open the fourth quarter already on the 25 yd line of Rocky River.  As they had all night the Rockets would run the ball with purpose.  Rocket RB Joe Galati would punch it in the end zone from 1 yd out, a made extra point made the score 27-17 with 8:40 remaining in the game.  Rocky River would then take the next kickoff all the way to the Rocket 21 yd line to attempt a 38 yd field goal.  The Rockets had other ideas as they wold block that attempt, recover the ball and return it all the way to their own 40 yd line.  The Rockets would the drive 60 yds for a decisive TD, Nick Buttari would score on a 6 yds run, his second of the night.  After a successful extra point  Bay led 34-17 with 2:02 remaining.  Bay Rockets would win over Rocky River with a final score of 34-17.

Rocky River falls to 5-3 over all and 3-3 in the Great Lakes Conference, they will look to rebound in week 9 when they travel to take on Buckeye.

Bay Village improves to 6-2 overall and 5-2 in the Great Lakes Conference, They were led by player of the game RB Nick Buttari who finished with 33 carries 205 yds and 2 TDs. The Rockets will host Parma in week 9.

SO LONG FROM ROCKY RIVER!!!

SOT Podcast Game of the Week: Valley Forge Patriots vs Elyria Catholic Panthers

By Sean Duffy

Elyria, OH– Week 6 in the 2019 high school football season is upon us, it is crunch time for a lot of teams. Weather is getting cooler and the playoff push is starting to heat up for a lot of teams. Time is running out to secure a coveted position in the 2019 post season. Such is the case the teams featured in this week’s game of the week. The Valley Forge Patriots (3-2, 2-2) travel to take on the Elyria Catholic Panthers ( 2-3, 1-4) in a Great Lakes Conference match-up of great importance. Each team is coming into tonight’s game trying to bounce back from a week 5 loss. It is sure to be a great game between two teams looking to get back on track in time for a playoff push.

Elyria Catholic wasted no time getting on the scoreboard when junior QB Steven Navalinsky connected with senior WR Connor Trockley for a 75 touchdown pass and the Panthers took a 7-0 lead with 10:28 remaining in the quarter.  After forcing  Valley Forge to punt, the Panthers drove the ball deep into Patriot territory and were looking to score again, but a costly fumble gave Valley Forge the ball on their own 35 yd line.  The Patriots would plod their way 65 yds for a touchdown, a 2 yd TD run from sophomore RB Trell Marks, to bring the 1st quarter to an end with the game tied 7-7. https://twitter.com/sotpodcast/status/1180261793798787077?s=21

Just as they did to open the first quarter, Navalinsky would connect with Trockley for another score this time for 27 yds, Elyria Catholic now led 14-7 with 11:42 left in the half.  The Panther defense would force a turnover on downs on the next Valley Forge offensive possession.  Navalinsky hit for a long TD pass for the second time on the night this time to WR Jaret Frantz for 79 yds.  Due to an injury to their long snapper, the panthers elected to go for and converted a 2 pt conversion, Panthers now led 22-7.  The Panthers offense would add to their lead on their next offensive possession with yet another big play, this time an 87 yd run from freshman RB Levi Ellis who was tackled on the 1 yd line.  Ellis would finish the job on the next play with a 1 yd TD run, Elyria Catholic held a 29-7 lead as the first half came to a close.

Valley Forge would get the ball to start the second half, as they did for most of the first half ran into a stout Panther defense but managed to get a 25 yd Field Goal from senior K Chris Hein.  Elyria Catholic would then go on to score 14 unanswered points. The first touchdown came from Senior RB Nathan Damron’s bruising 31 yd TD run, the second would be a 51 yd TD from Navalinsky, his fourth of the night, to WR Zachary Gorczyca.  by the end of the 3rd quarter Elyria Catholic held a 43-10 lead.

A running clock, and a stout defensive unit was all Elyria Catholic needed in the fourth quarter as they were able to stifle Valley Forge’s fourth down on the panther 5 yd line to secure to the 43-10 victory.

Valley Forge falls to 3-3 overall and 2-3 in the Great Lakes Conference.  They will look to bounce back in week 7 in a non conference match-up at Garfield Heights.

Elyria Catholic improves to 3-3 overall and 2-3 in the Great Lakes Conference. They were led by player of game QB Steven Navalinsky who threw for 4 touchdowns on the night.  The Panthers will look to continue their winning ways  in week 7 at Fairview.

 

GAME ON!!
