Week 9: Austintown Fitch (5-3) vs. Boardman (5-3)

It's rival week. The Falcons lead the series between the two schools 37-32-1. A lot at stake with this one. Let's get it going gentlemen. Thoughts.......

GO Falcons!

Fitch has owned the series as of late. Both teams need this one badly to stay alive in the playoff hunt, although if the Spartans win this and vs Lakeside, they can probably get a home playoff game. Throw the records out when these two get together. Should be another great battle!

First to 17 wins. Only 2 offensive touchdowns scored in this series the last 2 years combined. Going back to 2010 Boardman has only scored 5 touchdowns on offense against Fitch, despite winning 2 of the games lol!

Let's see if Ignazio and staff can have these boys prepared to win a big game.

Would love to see number 24 and number 25 in the same backfield for the Falcons. Thinking the Falcon defense will rise to it and stop the passing attack of the Boardman QB.Falcons are a tough unit on defense. how are the Boardman kickers I have seen Fitch play and their kickers are pretty darn good

Kicker is below average. No leg.

Yeah. He's just a soph but hasn't improved as much as I was hoping for. He had a decent kickoff leg in the scrimmages from what I saw but they've just been squibbing it all year and has caused us trouble. Can't do that against a good team. He's certainly way behind what Correia was as a sophomore.

I'm interested in the battle at the LOS. I really think this is where Boardman may have an edge. They've done a good job against Harding and Ursuline the last two weeks and Fitch is pretty undersized there from what I've heard. Should be a close one.

Fitch is small but they are quick. They are going to be shooting gaps and coming after O'Horo all night. Ignazio and staff better have some adjustments ready.

Well, they have the plays in the playbook for that. Will come down to execution and if they actually call them...

Saw Fitch vs Massillon. Massillon by no stretch is huge, but looking at them you would think Massillon would roll them. Fitch is quick, and hits hard. Very solid team with some great speed at some positions. Their QB will fool you. Looks small, but is a monster with the ball in his hands. The coach gets everything out of these kids. If you contain the QB you stand a chance of winning, but that is a must. I will pick Fitch in a close one.

Think Boardman has played a slightly tougher schedule, and has the best win of either team throughout the season but that was before Ieraci went down. This is really the first full game since Ieraci went down that I think Boardman will need to open up the playbook to win. Had they not turned it over so much, I think that would have been good enough against Mooney and Canfield. I think they'll need a bit more to beat Fitch. Can't leave points out there in the red zone this week.

Like I said though, don't think many points will be scored in this one. And those games are fun.

The game 2 years ago was one of the worst games I have ever seen in all my years on this earth lol. These games are usually always low scoring though. Boardman needs to be able to pass the ball effectively to win.

Last year's game was much worse lol. Boardman's offense consisted of handing it off to Adu-Poku 40 times and the occasional jump ball to Koontz. Had Fitch not blocked 2 or 3 punts it would have likely been enough, too!!!

If only we had that 2015 defense, though, this year. Don't think we'll ever see a team averaging 10-13 points a game make the playoffs though haha.
Since you brought up that team here was their offensive output.

Mentor-7 points; 1 offensive TD
Mooney-6 points; 1 offensive TD
Jackson-20 points; 1 offensive TD, 1 kick return, 2 FG
Perry-10 points; 1 offensive TD
Lorain-21 points; 3 offensive TD
Canfield-10 points; 0 offensive TD, 1 punt return, 1 FG
Harding-18 points; 2 FG, 1 offensive TD, 1 FG block recovery TD
Ursuline-21 points; 3 offensive TD
Fitch-10 points; 1 FG, 1 kick return TD
Lakeside-31 points; 2 offensive TD, 1 pick six, 1 punt return TD, 1 FG (121 yards of total offense)

I'd love to see Pickard more involved offensively. He can be a real weapon with his speed. Fitch has the athletes to keep up with Boardman so the offense is gonna have to spread it around.

Difficult game to pick, but I think Fitch's speed will contain Boardman. Fitch is like a swarm of bees that just keeps coming. One bee doesn't scare you, but when a whole hive comes at you, you get a little worried. I wish we could have the Brunswick game back because that is one team we would not lose to them now. Oh well, two wins might get us in.

On a serious note though, it appears that open enrollment is a hot topic for austintown schools this election cycle. Will it end?
