SOT Podcast Game of the Week: Wooster Generals vs Wadworth Grizzlies


By Sean Duffy

Wadsworth, OH– It is playoff time in Northeast Ohio! It is win and move on, lose and the season is over. Our game of the week is a first round match-up in Division II Region 7. The #3 ranked Wadsworth Grizzlies (10-0) host the #6 Wooster Generals (8-2). This contest is a rematch of a week 2 showdown between these two teams.  A lot is on the line for both of these teams as we

The first quarter started with Wooster going three and out. Wadsworth was driving deep in Generals territory when QB Trey Shaffer was intercepted by DB Kristian Scalf. Wooster then drove 89 yd for a score,  thanks to a 30 yd TD pass from QB Dylan Dagley to WR Zach Marinello, Wooster held a 7-0 lead. Wooster’s defense held Grizzlies on a 4th down attempt and took over on their own 15 yd line as the first quarter came to end with Wooster holding a 7-0 lead and driving into Grizzlies’ territory.

Wooster would add to their lead with a 25 yd field goal from kicker Joe Stoll, Wooster led 10-7 with 11:15 remaining in the half. Wadsworth would finally get on the scoreboard with an 80 yd scoring drive, RB Brock Snowball with a 15 yd run, the score was now 10-7 in favor Wooster with 7:34 left in the half. Wooster would respond with  a 13 yd TD run by RB Trevar Meese  on their next offensive, Wooster lead 17-7 with 4:50 left in the half. On Wadsworth’s next possession Generals DB Jett Morgan picked off Shaffer and took it 35 yds for a TD, Wooster now led 24-7 with 4:37 left in the half. Wadsworth responded with 2 Touchdowns before half, a 16 yd run by RB Barret Labus and a 3 yd TD run by RB Dom Loparo made made the score 24-21 in favor of Wooster at half.

After trading 3 and outs Wooster had an opportunity to win the game as it drove from its own 18 yd line down to the Grizzlies 6yd line with under a minute to go. However the Grizzlies defense answered the bell breaking up 3 sure TD receptions in the end zone and sacking Dagley on 4th and goal, securing the 42-38 victory.

What a fantastic game in Wadsworth!

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.

Be sure to follow us on twitter @SOTPodcast for live updates from the game.

We will see you Friday night in Medina!


Sports On Tap Game of the Week: Brecksville-Broadview Heights vs Olmsted Falls


By Sean Duffy

Olmsted Falls, OH-  The most wonderful time of year is upon us, Week 1 of High School Football in Northeast Ohio.   Our game of the week is a match up of two teams very much riding a wave of buzz  and expectation for the 2018 campaign. The Brecksville Broadview Heights Bees from the Suburban League National Division travel to Olmsted Falls to take on the Bulldogs of the Southwestern Conference.

After forcing a Brecksville punt on the opening drive, the Bulldogs struck first. Senior QB Teddy Grendzynski scored on a 20 yd TD Run, Bulldogs led 7-0 Early in to the first quarter.  Olmsted Falls’ defense forced a fumble on the very next Brecksville play from scrimmage, and took over  deep in Bee territory.  Grendzynski would find Senior WR Braden Galaska for a 24 yd TD and the Bulldogs led 14-0 Half way through the first quarter.

Brecksville was finally able to get some rhythm offensively  as they put together a 67 yd drive that was capped off with a 6 yd  TD run from Junior RB Christian Mitchell.  At the end of the first quarter the bulldogs led 14-7.

Brecksville’s Defense was able to stifle the bulldog offense on a 4th and 1 to open the second quarter, giving the bees great field position.  However, the Bulldog defense immediately responded with an interception by Braden Galaska.  Olmsted Falls utilized a 27 yd pass and catch  from Grendzynski to Senior WR Dylan Reines; that set up a 1 yd TD Plunge by Senior RB Jack Spellacy, Olmsted Falls Led 21-7 early in the second quarter.   The Bees responded with a scoring drive of 75 yds, Sophmore RB Garret Kubitz would score on a 1 yd TD run, Olmsted falls led 21-14  with 4:59 left in the half.  The Brecksville defense was able to force a fumble on the next Bulldog offensive possession and Brecksville Sophomore QB Joe Labas connected with Junior WR Ronald Wilson for a 24 yd TD pass and catch, just like that the game was tied 21-21 with 1:21 Left in the half.

Olmsted Falls capitalized on an excellent kick off return and marched 49 yds down the field and a 2 yd TD run by Spellacy, his second on the night, gave the bulldogs a 28-21 lead at half time.

Olmsted Falls Dominated the third quarter on both sides of the ball.  Offensively the Bulldogs would have two drives of 80 yds to tack on two more TDs, Each ran in by  QB Teddy Grendzynski,  giving him 3 on the night.  Defensively the Bulldogs were smothering the Bees, creating negative plays,  limiting yards after contact, and notching a big sack on fourth down to end the quarter,  Olmsted Falls lead stood at 41-21.

The Bulldogs continued to score at will, this time Grendzynski found Senior RB Michael Howard for a 3 yd TD pass, Bulldogs Led 48-21 early in the 4th.

The Bees would respond with a scoring drive of 80 yds, capped off by a 3 yd TD run from Christian Mitchell,  Bulldogs held a 48-28 lead with 7:00 left in the game.  Olmsted Falls again Responded with a 63 yd scoring drive, punctuated by a 1 yd TD run by Junior Alec Wall.  The Olmsted Falls Bulldogs would defeat the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Bees 55-28.

The Bees fall to 0-1 on the season as they will look to rebound in week 2 as they will host Garfield Heights.  Olmsted Falls was led by Senior QB and player of game Teddy Grendzynski with 5 total TDs , 3 Rushing and 2 passing on the night.  The Bulldogs improve to 1-0 on the season and will  go on the road in week 2 to face Avon as they open up Southwestern conference play.






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.
