Northern Buckeye Conference 2020

You think Oak Harbor or Chippewa will beat Elyria Catholic?
no way chippewa will beat elyria catholic but oak harbor has the better chance because oak harbor upset port clinton with a back up qb plus elyria catholic allowed 505 rushing yards in a 55 -21 loss to valley forge and oak harbor has a balanced offense so yes oak harbor can beat elyria catholic.

I would enjoy an Eastwood/Oak Harbor rematch.

Playoff results/thoughts:

D4
Rossford 44 Triway 34 - Best overall offensive game all year for the Bulldogs. This seems to be what people were waiting all year for. Now they get the Shelby Whippets who are the real deal.

D5
Lake 20 Waynedale 26 - Not a good loss for the Flyers. Maybe looking ahead to the potential rematch with Eastwood. Lake ends with another subpar/average year.

Fostoria 0 North Union 48 - The struggle continues. Fostoria needs to go schedule some teams of their caliber for the next two weeks to finish out the year. Find a few games you can be competitive in.

Elmwood 53 Lakota 21 - Royals finally get that playoff win. They are rewarded with a trip down to BVC champion Liberty Benton.

Woodmore 16 Hicksville 28 - Seemed like the Wildcats were competitive. I like the schedule they end with though. Should be some competitive games for them.

Genoa 55 Brooklyn 0 - Comets rolled, but Brooklyn was B-A-D. Interesting matchup next week with North Union for the Comets. If things click they may be able to pull an upset.

Eastwood and Otsego sat idle with Bye's this week. Eastwood will host Waynedale next week and Otsego will host Pleasant (which could be a sneaky good game).

Round 2 Playoffs begin Friday. Here's my projections:

Rossford 14 Shelby 38 - The up and down season for the Bulldogs continues. Rossford will get 1 more win when they play Fostoria and Drusback will have another year right around .500.

Otsego 35 Pleasant 24 - Game is close until the 4th quarter when the Knights pull away. Otsego doesn't beat themselves and their QB has made great decisions all year. If Pleasant can force some turnovers and hit a few big plays, watch out.

Elmwood 19 Liberty Benton 42 - LB just a little too much for the Royals, but Elmwood makes it competitive most of the night.

Eastwood 31 Waynedale 14 - I think Waynedale will have a tough time stopping the ground attack of Eastwood. Waynedale was able to beat Lake because of some big plays and costly Lake mistakes.

I don't think the Fostoria game is happening. Maybe a game against PC if they both lose this weekend? They are playing a JV game against each other tonight, and Drusback and Beau Carman are pretty good friends.

If they hold Shelby to 38, I'll be stunned. Rossford will need to score in the 30s to avoid a running clock. Sit in cover 2 to take away the big plays and let Shelby rip off 10-15 yard gains all night, or stack the box and give up long TDs like they did against Triway. Too many weapons for the Whippets, who've moved the ball against everyone on their schedule.

Rossford is hosting Fostoria on 10/23 (if they get knocked out of playoffs) and hosting Port Clinton on 10/30.

DIV 4
Rossford 13 Shelby 32 - Bulldogs play tough but can't overcome the 4 turnovers. One week closer to basketball season.

DIV 5
Otsego 38 Pleasant 6 - Ground game was effective for the Knights as they piled up nearly 300 yards on the ground. When they are clicking on the ground and through the air....watch out.

Eastwood 35 Waynedale 0 - All Eagles. Eastwood defense played well and offense controlled the ball.

Genoa 7 North Union 35 - Comets only mustered 100 yards total offense while giving up over 400. Genoa may have their first back to back consecutive losing seasons since '05-'06.

Elmwood 13 Liberty Benton 33 - Royals made it competitive but LB too much. Elmwood is getting there though.
