D-III R9 Week 13: #1 Canfield Cardinals (12-0) Vs #6 St.Vincent-St.Mary Irish (9-3)

The Irish are coming off of a 28-7 win over the Tallmadge Blue Devils (8-4). They previously defeated Woodridge (9-2) in week 11 27-17. In the regular season their key victories include: Tri-Valley (21-13), Buchtel (21-14), Mooney (27-21), and Massillon (13-10). They were defeated by Hoban (7-21), Barberton (14-35) and La Salle (9-17).

Canfield defeated the Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin Lions (9-3) by a score of 22-7. Canfield is undefeated (12-0) after defeating Aurora in week 11 after a perfect regular season.

Canfield and SV-SM have met one time previously in the playoffs in 2015. SV-SM was defeated by the eventual state champion Hoban that year.
What are your guys thoughts on this match up? Who do you think has a better chance of knocking off Trotwood-Madison moving forward?

Canfield played a good game tonight. Showed a lot of toughness with Vinny being banged up. Breinz and Nick Crawford were animals tonight. Defense played well with the exception of 1 run. Where we thinking this game will be played Ravenna?

This is the regional championship matchup most expected and greatly anticipated. It should be a good one.

I know Canfield has had a great season and will be favored. The question is can the very young Irish pull off the upset.

I like Ravenna for the venue.

Good luck to both teams.

Very rarely do the Irish come into a big playoff match up (apparently other than against Hoban!) as the underdog! Not a big one, mind you! But Canfield has certainly earned the mantle of favorite for this regional final; especially after an impressive win over a very good NDCL team. Going to be a great test for the young Irish team. Its in preparation for games like this that STVM plays the likes of LaSalle, etc. But Canfield has certainly had the more difficult path in the playoffs and have handled it admirably. Still, while Canfield will be a tough out, I'm thinking the leprechauns will have some late game magic up their sleeves to pull off another win! Go Irish!

Ravenna would be perfect location.
Otherwise Twinsburg or Hudson.

Good luck to the Cards!

Irish 5 opponents have advanced to their regional finals- Tri Valley in D3. 4 of the final 8 Hoban Barberton Lasalle & Massillon in D2. STVM very young squad is growing up fast. All of the Irish scorers tonight are sophomores. Canfield is a very formidable opponent. This should be a great matchup.

I like the Irish but can't deny the Canfield record. St V preparation and how the Irish repeatedly peak at the right time. Great program. Boarman on staff again will provide great mentoring. They will be ready. Irish is a close one. Both teams healthy?

Go cardinals and goodluck. I think that even if Canfield is technically the favorite most on here are going to pick svsm.

Not sure about SV-SM but Canfield played almost 3 quarters against ND-CL without their starting QB. He apparently has some sort of injury to his ankle, he saw limited time as a slot receiver meanwhile they utilized the wildcat quite a bit.

Big injury for the cards. Swings advantage to the Irish.

Tough to make a call on this one without knowing what is up with the Canfield QB. Glad to see Canfield back in the mix. I remember their run a while back with that Angelo Babbaro kid who unfortunately went down in the final against TCC.

It’s like 10 minutes between Salem and Canfield. Odd choice.

10 miles down Route 62, but about 20 minutes

Glad Canfield will get a little home cooking. Ohsaa usually gives svsm ravenna when playing the valley schools. Salem will be plenty for this game.

I'm surprised that if they went with a place so close distance-wise to Canfield, they didn't at least pick a site with easy freeway access like Fitch.

Was not impressed with STVM.

Other than the QB, #34, and #5 ......wasn't much else to be impressed with. Definitely a good team but not a powerhouse as they have been in the past.

If Canfield is as good as advertised, they should win this game.

Sounds like sour grapes. Could have been a 35-7 pounding if the Irish didnít put in the 2nd string halfway through the 4th quarter. Shut Tallmadge out after the 1st drive of the game. Plenty to be impressed with.....especially on the defensive side of the ball.

Expect this to be a defensive battle. First to 20 probably wins (if either get that)

Too bad Lake wasn't in the mix as a venue.

They might as well play the game in Canfield. Damn near a home game.

Looking forward to this game. It should be a great matchup. Always enjoy these games where the teams are relatively close but have no overlaps in their schedules.

SVSM has played many games on the road, all over the place. This venue won't be a problem. Field is still 100 yards long. The Irish will show up and play their game. Whether or not they win, will be decided Friday night.

Since 2012 Irish have lost to Athens and Hoban twice in the playoffs (18-3) being on the road is no issue.

Canfield is the most penalized team remaining in the playoffs both by number of penalties and penalty yardage.

Good luck to both teams for a injury free game. No dog in this fight but I think St V might be a little more battle tested.

Are the penalties holding, motion, off sides, etc., or the more nefarious personal fouls?
