I watched SR this past week...very impressed. I'll take them in a close game (only because I haven't seen Black River play).

Good luck Raiders! Keep it going!!

Somebody is off their meds...

Being an old-timer from SR, I like the Raiders chances here. They've done some things this year that I cannot recall them doing in any previous year, namely 1) going undefeated in a season where they play so many new (unfamiliar) opponents, 2) and beating so many good teams. Seems there's something really special about this year's team. That said, they can be beat and I believe coach Y has them understanding that. They've reached this level before... only to lose to a team that they were "better" than. I don't see this happening this time.

Good luck to both teams! I hope to see an error-free game where the best team wins straight up!

Your information is not much better. Put up stats if you feel like Sullivan is superior to SR. I always love me a comparison table on a Monday morning...hint/hint. Maybe a spreadsheet? Just some suggestions.

You feel Sullivan plays tough...most teams play tough if they are still alive week 13. No one ever questioned Sullivan's toughness or speed, but you went on the offensive quickly. Settle bro...let the players and fans enjoy the week, including yourself.

SR played a tough schedule...so did Sullivan. Both teams are very deserving...we'll know more by 11pm on Friday night.

Boomer couldn't agree more. He gets mad when people say SR going to win. Yet he puts no facts to his statements of black river winning. Any way good luck to former conference foe Canfield and future conference foe South Range. Represent the valley

I am so glad they play the game on the field and not through speculation and a meaningless poll. I am so glad almost everyone is sleeping on River good luck to all. You guys coming from Mahoning Valley be safe coming in!! Go River

I can't decide who's the bigger whacko on this thread: Moose or Stiz.

On one hand, I recall Moose running a similar but more tame line of nonsense last year when CCC played Black River in the 2nd round. Including this one:

Let him know they are too slow and dont belong on the same field. By the way I have seen enough football to know that if you get knocked around a little bit you dont want to touch the ball.

That one ended up a 30-0 beatdown in favor of CCC. CCC shut down Black River's vaunted rushing attack, and Black River couldn't throw the ball to save its life. However, past performance is not indicative of future results. This is a new year and a different matchup of teams.

On the other hand, we have Stiz claiming the best team in this region didn't make the playoffs, CCC. I don't know if Stiz even watched CCC play this year, but I must disagree with his assessment. Difficult schedule or not, CCC did not play well enough on a consistent basis this year to make me believe they would even win this region if they had qualified for the playoffs.

Its hard to beat a school that recruits and can pool from the entire state just sayin. The reason CCC is down this year is because they knee they were about to get busted.

Just when you think Stiz has won, moose comes from nowhere to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat!

Thrilled to see both teams get this far.

South Range has some great folks and Black River is led by the immortal Al Young.

1984, Are you talking about Patrick Henry in 2005? I don't know if South Range was a "better" team that year. I thought they were both pretty evenly matched. Injuries to Novak and Rach killed the Raiders in that state semi-final.

As far as the game with Black River, the Raiders seem to be on a roll with executing the run option to a T. Defense's pick their poison in stopping Remish, and Buzzacco runs freely. Stop Buzzacco and Remish gashes them up the middle. Crowd the box and Buzzacco hits Combs, Stear or Toy in the passing game. Then there are the jet sweeps with Combs to keep defenses honest. Defense's have to play sideline to sideline, and line of scrimmage to backfield. Hard for most defense's to do both at the high school level.

Defensively, the Raiders swarm to the ball and have great team speed. Remish is a stand out linebacker, maybe even better as a linebacker than running back. And the d-line and d-ends have been very assignment sound most all of the season. They put a lot of pressure on opposing quarterbacks while the ends rarely lose containment on runs to the outside. Hopefully Friday night they can slow the Pirates offense while the Raiders offense keeps producing. Like always, the game will be won at the line of scrimmage. Who wins that battle will win the game.

I have not posted on this site in a long long time. My thoughts on the game is one team is winning by 2 touchdowns or more. Either South Range will show they are as good as advertised, or Black River will shock some people. If I were placing a bet on the game it would be on SR, but am rooting for the Pirates. Good luck to both teams, it is only just a game! Oh and here is a nice article about a 52 game losing streak Black River once had.

No, I was kinda thinking about last year... SR lost the first playoff game, right? And I thought we were favored... (I could be wrong)

Last year,....yeah definitely. I usually have nothing but praise for coach Yeagley and his staff, but they got out-coached last year by Garfeld. A friend of mine from Mogadore said Garfield refused to run the ball last year during the regular season despite having good rb's. Then against the Raiders they broke out the running game when the Raiders built their whole game plan around stopping the Garfield passing game. Hopefully the Raiders learned from that experience.

i dont knows much about south range but if both teams love running the ball, that should cancel each one out,but i figure south range has the qb who can pass the ball,black river dont pass that much so it could come down to qb play and specialtyteam and with that my gut says south range will win.black rivers competition in their league is d-3 buckeye,d-4 firelands rest of their league is weak,so the edge is to south range.

South Range figured out how to stop Manchester on the ground, and Manchester still had no answer for SR's offense. I don't know if it'll be any closer on Friday, but I think it's more of the same for South Range.

This. I don't think River will be quick/athletic enough to stop Range on offense, while Range's D will be disciplined and physical enough to slow River. I'm going a final of 31-14 Range.

Hope range wins. But they have to have the ugliest jersey / color scheme ever. God there’s something I dislike about gold and maroon

They said the same stuff in 99 and River came out and smacked them in the mouth and beat them by 3 scores. Black River is more physical and just as fast as Range. Hope the boys from Range is not as cocky ad their fans could be a very long night for the Raiders!! I dont think Range has been hit as hard as they will be tomorrow night those corn fed hicks are ready to bring it!!!

Lol the kids playing tomorrow were infants or not even born yet in 99. Literally means nothing. You really should stop acting as such a victim and defensive because people think Range is going to win. There's literally only 2 Range fans on here, the rest are neutral observers.
