    Week #8: Poland Seminary (4-3) at Cortland Lakeview (4-3)

    The "playoffs" continue again this week for Poland as they travel to Cortland to take on a good, well-coached Lakeview team in The Battle of The Bulldogs.

    Week #3: Jefferson (1-1) at Poland Seminary (1-1)

    Another week, another big game for Poland in their Friday home opener at Dave Pavlansky Field against Jefferson. Both teams were mentioned as pre-season playoff bubble teams, so neither team can afford to go 1-2. Poland lost their home opener 35-21 to a now 2-0 Marlington team, but rallied to...

    Week #2: Poland Seminary (0-1) at Niles McKinley (1-0)

    Huge Week 2 game for both programs. Could be a game with two teams heading in opposite directions this season, Poland on a possible down year, and Niles finally putting it together after several disappointing seasons? Poland, for their part, has to show that their Week 1 performance was an...

    Week 10: Canfield (7-2) at Poland Seminary (9-0) - The Battle of 224 Trophy

    The Captain had to be quick on the draw for this one as Poland-Canfield means so much every year, but this is certainly one of the bigger games these two storied rivals have played in a few years!!! For starters, Poland has won this game six years in a row, but this years Canfield team might...

    Week 7: Poland Seminary (6-0) at Youngstown East (2-4)

    Poland rolls into Week 7 as still the AP #3 ranked Division III team in the State. A hallmark of any great team is that you have to be able to beat the teams you are supposed to beat. The Bulldogs did exactly that last week when they beat its pesky backyard rival Struthers 42-14. Now they...

    Week 5: Ashtabula Edgewood (1-3) at Poland Seminary (4-0)

    The Captain believes in the concept of On Any Given Friday, but this Week 5 matchup was marked before the season as the one of the lesser capable opponents that Poland was to face this year and nothing has seemed to change that. A hallmark of Mark Brungard coached team is that his Poland squads...

    Week 4: Poland Seminary (3-0) at Warren Howland (2-1)

    The Captain gets this one started early again as this is easily one of the top games in the Mahoning Valley this week. Undefeated Poland is off to a great start with wins over Marlington, Niles, and Jefferson. Interestingly enough, each of the three teams Poland has beaten are 2-1, with each...
