Springfield is the 3 time defending regional champion and heavy favorite coming into this game. Can liberty pull the upset?

Well it’s unlikely but the blueprint to beat the cats is there. Get pressure, control the clock, make the most of your possessions and force turnovers. Easier said than done however
 
Springfield is a talented team. Will beat OL easily. But they are out matched the next game. If the play Moeller then Moeller will just run the ball down their throat. Springfield struggles against the run. And west defense way to tough for Springfield.

Maybe you should check out Springfield's stats, team and recent playoff history first. Their 21-0 win over Fairmont proves they can handle the run. And, Lakota West has one of the worst SOS in the state and their defense has never faced a qb and offense like what SHS will bring.

There may be a blueprint to beating Springfield, but you have to have the horses to execute it.

Springfield puts this one away by halftime.

Springfield doesn’t struggle against the run at all. Moeller and west are both excellent but let’s not act like springfield didn’t beat Moeller last year and should’ve won that by more.

No one has a crystal ball to know who will win what on any given night. But, for these people to suggest SHS can't compete with anyone in the state is ridiculous at this point.

Doubt this game will be close at all, Liberty looked average at best against X early this year. Maybe they've found a little lightning in a bottle the past few weeks, and weirder things have happened I guess.
 
Moeller struggled with Mason lastnight so lets not act like they are unbeatable. Moeller will have to do more than just run the ball right at SHS. Especially if SHS gets up early. Anything can happen in that final 4.

Moeller only struggled after pulling their starters at 21-0. They're obviously beatable because Ed's pulled that trick. SHS should cruise this week, then the fun match-up will be with one of the two Cincy teams.
