VIDEO Highlights: OHSAA Football Playoffs, Regional Quarterfinal: Rocky River Beats Buckeye 32-15 to advance.

By Rob Trautman

Rocky River, OH- A Week 12 Second Round Playoff matchup featured two teams in the Great Lakes Conference. It was cold and you could hear the pads clashing with two teams that love to hit.

First Quarter both teams moved the ball down the field with little scoring. The only score was on a 40 yard field goal by Rocky River Kicker Mack Massad. After 1 quarter it was 3-0 Pirates.

In the second quarter Rocky River would add to their 3-0 lead with Pirates RB/LB Tommy Bebie scoring from 5 yards out, the XP was no good and the Pirates led 9-0 with 8:38 left in the second quarter. The Rocky River QB Braedon Spies threw a strike to WR Patrick Lange who made a great diving catch. The 2point conversion was no good and the Pirates led 15-0 with 2:19 left till half. Buckeye had many chance at the River 5 yard line but failed too core before half. The Pirates defense stood their ground and that was a big stance in the game.

The third quarter, Buckeye would finally get on the board with a RB Ben Barnes 4 yard touchdown.  He looked like he was stopped multiple times but he would not be denied. The XP was good and the third quarter would end at 15-7.

The 4th quarter had a few scores. First Rocky River Kicker Mack Massad would hit a 20 yard field goal and the River lead was 18-7.  With 6:48 left in the 4th quarter Buckeye would cut the Pirates lead to 18-15 with a 1 yard run by RB Ben Barnes, he would also score a 2point conversion. Rocky River would answer with another touchdown run from standout RB/LB Tommy Bebie. He would take it in from 15 yards out and the lead was 25-15 with 3:28 left in the 4th.  Bebie wasn’t done, putting the icing on the cake with a 73 yard touchdown run and the Pirates advance with a 32-15 win!

VIDEO Highlights: First Round Playoff- SOT Featured Game: Olmsted Falls runs past Valley Forge 30-15.

By Rob Trautman

Olmsted Falls, OH- A Week 11 First Round Playoff matchup featured two teams that loved to run the football. The weather finally stopped raining but the conditions were slick, and wet in Olmsted Falls. This was the last game on the natural grass in Olmsted Falls. Next year the Bulldogs get to play on new artificial turf.

In the first quarter Valley Forge would establish a great drive that led to the first points of the game. It was Valley Forge running back, and Purdue commit Kentrell Marks who would run it in from 5 yards out giving the Patriots a 7-0 lead early on. Olmsted Falls would respond with a 17 pass from QB Charlie Ciolek to WR Carson Atkins. The Bulldogs went for two and got it! It was an 8-7 lead after one quarter of play.

In the second quarter Olmsted Falls would start the scoring with a 27- yard run by RB Luke Dieckman. The XP was good and the Bulldogs led 15-7 with 9:02 left in the second quarter. They would again score with another running back, this time RB Rocco Conti would get into the scoring books with a 4 yard touchdown run, the 2point conversion was good and the Bulldogs started distancing themself now leading 23-7 right before halftime.

The third quarter came and went without any scoring although both teams moved the ball, both defenses held their own. In the 4th quarter Olmsted Falls running back Rocco Conti would power his way into the end zone as the Bulldogs would now lead 30-7. Valley Forge wouldn’t give up, scoring from 27 yards was the talented Youngstown commits Eddie Starks who showed his speed to the end zone.  They got the 2pt conversion with get within two scores at 30-15.  That is how this game would end. Olmsted Falls holds on for the 30-15 win in the first round of the playoffs.

Olmsted Falls RB Rocco Conti had 17 rushes for 144 yards and 2 TDs on the night.

The Bulldogs improve to 9-2 and will travel to Barberton to take on the Magics in the Second round of the playoffs.  For Valley Forge their season ends with a 6-4 record and a very successful season.
