I wouldn’t be completely shocked if Lowellville won, but I think Valley beats them
Toss up. However Lowellville strength (passing) goes into Valley strength ( pass defense) Held pass happy United to 7 points going into the 4th quarter. Gave the other teams in the league their lowest passing yards when they played. Granted those other teams arent exactly greatest show on turf, but still..The question I have is can Lowellville beat Valley Christian? Do they have any shot?
Lowellville’s defense couldn’t defend Springfield’s powder puff team if they tried.Toss up.

Well reading the Vindy article sounds like WR really wants to play Springfield again.Happy for the Blue Devils tonight. The QB has really got it rolling the last few weeks. This is a new offense since the first time WR played the Tigers. I’m not saying it will be enough to win, it would take a lot, but excited to see it. It will be a true test for Coach Lude to see how much the team has improved since week 2. The problem is Springfield is better too. I would like to see WR open it up more this time because it seems like a new wide receiver steps up every single week. They have a lot of weapons. Springfield probably wins, but hoping to see a good fight out of the Blue Devils.
Haha not sure it is what they , but in that region, pick your poison lol.
what was in the paper? Didn’t see it
Good for them. I for one like that they are not afraid of them...again doesn’t mean they will win. That’s a tall task for any team in this region let alone the Blue Devils. I do think it shows the type of confidence Coach Lude is instilling in his football team. Hake did the same thing when he got here, you want your kids to believe they can win. The Blue Devils need to play much better defensively, continue to run the ball and the QB has to play well. Springfield also has to make some mistakes and WR has to capitalize on it. Even if all that happens, that would only give them a chance to be within striking distance. I’m not sure they can do it, but I like that they think they can.“After ringing the bell, you could hear members of the team yelling ‘We want the Tigers.’ They’re getting what they want as they travel to New Middletown next week to take on Springfield in a rematch of last season’s first-round playoff game.
“These guys set a goal in the preseason, the first day I got here,” Lude said. “Their goal was to beat Springfield. We gave them everything we could for a half the first time we met them. When we left that day we said ‘We hope we get another shot at them.’ I know our guys are excited about it and I look forward to that opportunity next week.”
BERLIN CENTER— In the north end zone at Western Reserve Stadium is a bell that’s rung after every Blue Devils victory. During the 2020 regular season, that bell did not get to ring as Western Reserve lost all three of its home contests. That changed Saturday as the Blue Devils opened the...www.vindy.com
I agree. QB looks like he is finally healthy and is on quite the roll. I’m hoping they open it up more. One thing that I think could make a difference. WR O-Line is getting healthy and controlled the LoS in the first round. WR had 4 drives inside the 20 and came away with no points. Hopefully opening it up more will allow them to finish the drives they couldn’t finish the first time. Hell I think one time they had first and goal from the 2. Have to capitalize on those kind of opportunities against good teams like Springfield.I am interested to see in WR uses more of a spread look this game. They were able to move the ball in their heavy set last game but unable to finish drives. They didn't really get into shotgun until late when Springfield built a lead. I hope they use more of a combination from the get go this time. You never know what could happen, sounds like the players are motivated.
Interesting to see Windham folding. I say that because this appears to be a very winnable game for the Bombers. Put a running clock on St John. The same St John team team East Palestine beat by a pointFrom what I have heard, Waterloo will play EP this coming Friday. Windham was to play EP, but folded it season.
Windham suffered a key injury in the game at Waterloo. Then immediately had a fourth down stop. The coaches asked for and agreed to a running clock with the score on 21-0. Waterloo scored immediately on their next drive. But, Windham did get on the board late in the game. Which, regardless how their season ended, had to be a positive.Windham only had 11 healthy players during the Waterloo game. I can see why they folded the season.
