A LOOK AT FRIDAY NIGHT

A look at who won on Friday and what team will they play next.

FRIDAY'S RESULTS

Winning teams in red

DIVISION II

Avon Lake 41, Maumee 7

Here is one that I picked right. Avon Lake rolls and will play Defiance next week.

Chardon 37, Macedonia Nordonia 7

Well my pick was Macedonia Nordonia, I look real bad. Chardon advances to play Copley in the next round.

Cols. Brookhaven 33, Whitehall-Yearling 27

This was a game I would have paid to see. I picked Whitehall-Yearling by a FG, well Brookhaven wins by 6 and advances to play Independence who I did pick to win.

Cols. Independence 49, Louisville 26

Like I said, I picked Independence to win and they did. What a game next week when they play Brookhaven.

Copley 38, Warren Howland 16

I did real bad in this bracket by picking both teams that lost. Copley takes on Chardon next week.

Defiance 25, Sylvania Southview 13

Well I'm doing so bad in DII. I picked Southview and Defiance picks up a nice win to advance and play a team I did pick in Avon Lake.

Kings Mills Kings 38, Jackson 14

I said I liked the coaching by Kings and they didn't let me down. Next they take on another team I picked in Trenton Edgewood.

Trenton Edgewood 28, Day. Carroll 10

Edgewood fans, your team is making a believer out of me. I picked them to win the last two weeks and they have. Another big test comes next week against Kings.

TEAM SEED W-L
COPLEY 5 9-3
CHARDON 3 10-2
DEFIANCE 4 10-2
AVON LAKE 2 12-0
BROOKHAVEN 1 12-0
INDEPENDENCE 3 10-2
EDGEWOOD 1 12-0
KINGS 2 11-1

If you look at the final 8 teams this is shaping up to be a great final four and final. The seeding went very well in this group.  Only Copley wasn't a top four points finisher. 

DIVISION III

Canal Fulton NW 28, Thornville Sheridan 26

I picked Canal Fulton to win, they did but only by 2 points. Sheridan gave everything they had and came close to pulling another upset in the playoffs. Up next Steubenville.

Cle. Benedictine 43, Hunting Valley University 0

I said Benedictine was rolling and they kill Hunting Valley. Next up will be Mentor Lake Catholic.

Cols. Watterson 9, Cols. DeSales 6, OT

I said I would pay to see this game and I wasn't wrong. OT and a 3 point win by Watterson. This just proves how hard DIII is in 2003. Next up is another team I picked in Kenton.

Germantown Valley View 34, Cin. Wyoming 26

Valley View doesn't want the season to end. I picked them to win and they did. Up next is one of the hottest teams in the state Licking Valley who beat another GCL North team.

Kenton 36, Cols. Beechcroft 26

Kenton advances with a big win. Next week won't be any walk in the park when they play Watterson. I ask again, other than Kenton fans, Who would have picked Kenton to advance this far?

Mentor Lake Cath. 21, Chesterland W. Geauga 0

I picked Mentor Lake to win and advance, they did just that. Next they have to face the top team in DIII in Benedictine.

Newark Licking Valley 21, Kettering Alter 19

Two close games for Licking Valley, but they win both of them. In playing two of the top DIII teams in the state and winning, they are looking to make a run to the finals. Up next Valley View, another Dayton area team. Will they make it three in a row over Dayton?

Steubenville 28, Lisbon Beaver 21

What I thought would be a safe pick came very close to being another wrong pick. I thought Steubenville was getting poised for a big run in the playoffs, but they may not be the best team in DIII at this time.

TEAMS SEED W-L
BENEDICTINE 1 11-1
MENTOR LAKE CATH 3 10-2
KENTON 5 9-3
WATTERSON 3 10-2
STEUBENVILLE 1 12-0
CANAL FULTON NW 3 12-0
NEWARK LICKING VALLEY 4 11-1
VALLEY VIEW 7 11-1

Making the grade ranges from #1 to #7 in this bracket.  While Benedictine must be listed as the team to beat, others are playing some of the best football in the state at this time. Wattersons win over De Sales was very big for many of the teams left in this Division.  Valley View comes out from the seven hole and Kenton makes if from the five hole to advance.

 

DIVISION V

Amanda-Clearcreek 28, Woodsfield Monroe Cent. 7

Another good pick, they will play Shenandoah next week and have a great chance to advance.

Bainbridge Paint Valley 38, Morral Ridgedale 29

Was wrong on this bracket the whole way. Paint Valley will have its hands full in the next round with Cols. Academy who killed the OPS #1 teams Marion Pleasant.

Delphos St. John's 35, Bloomdale Elmwood 14

I picked St John's and they did what I thought they would do. Win and win big. Next up Patrick Henry.

Gahanna Cols. Academy 76, Marion Pleasant 29

I gave Marion Pleasant the advantage because we had them #1. WOW! The Academy went to work and advance to take on Paint Valley. If they don't have a letdown look out for this team.

Hamler Patrick Henry 51, Lorain Clearview 24

My pick was Patrick Henry and they didn't let me down. A big test will come next week as they play St. John's.

Lisbon David Anderson 14, Dalton 6

Well it was a close game but another wrong pick by me. How will they do next week with a hot team in Warren JFK?

Sarahsville Shenandoah 28, Wheelersburg 14

I went with the upset and was wrong. Wheelersburg let me down but Shenandoah will have its hands full next week against Amanda-Clearcreek.

Warren JFK 34, N. Lima S. Range 14

Another winner for me. I like what I'm seeing from this team and look for them to advance next week as well.
