Kudos to the Tipp punter for pinning Troy inside the 10 several times. A very boring 2nd half.The Tipp-Troy game was not the best version of football I've seen. Troy had Tipp's run game completely stuffed, but Tipp insisted on doing it anyways. Meanwhile Troy put together a few drives, but they were killed by turnovers and penalties. With how Tipp played the field position battle in the 2nd half, Troy really never mounted any threat. Tipp is going to need to be a lot better next week if they're gonna have a shot to beat Piqua.
Looking at the box score of the Xenia game tells you all you need to know about that oneNot the game I was expecting to see especially in the 2nd half. Very sloppy from both teams. Tipp had their work cut out for them next week. But after seeing the Xenia score gotta wonder if both Tipp and Xenia didn’t come to play tonight.
It wasnt bad luck Butler hit him stripped the ball and ran it back. The interception for a TD was a great play. Great teams dont turn it over 5 times.Looking at the box score of the Xenia game tells you all you need to know about that one
Xenia absolutely handled Butler, just turned the ball over, including a 60 yard fumble return for TD for Butler. A lot of bad luck, but they still ended up winning by 2 scores.
Tipp was moreso very even with Troy and had what appeared to be an off game.
Butler also had a pick six called back due to a block in the back, and ended up not scoring that drive. Butler kids played very well and never gave up. Xenia had just too many athletes and the running backs are very good.It wasnt bad luck Butler hit him stripped the ball and ran it back. The interception for a TD was a great play.

Lock it up Xenia 10-0 will be # 1 seed region 8 !!Butler also had a pick six called back due to a block in the back, and ended up not scoring that drive. Butler kids played very well and never gave up. Xenia had just too many athletes and the running backs are very good.
They will only be separated by 3.0 Level 1 points (0.3 rating in the calculations). Winton Woods will have about 45-50 more Level 2 points (4.5 to 5.0 in the ratings) and that will be the difference.WW will definitely get a windfall of points added to their total provided they take care of business and beat Milford this week. Should be enough to put them in the driver seat as Xenia has a weak schedule the last 3 games which won't net them much in terms of level 1 points the rest of the way.
Y'all acting like you don't want this Winton Woods smoke.It would benefit Xenia to fall to #2 and Edgewood to hold at #3 to avoid Winton Woods and Kings as long as possible in the playoffs. Not saying they are better than Edgewood, Anderson, or any other team they could play in the first three rounds; however, those teams are a better option than playing either Winton Woods or Kings. I see Kings finishing either #4 or #5.
We definitely gotta clean up on these stupid turnovers ever since Tipp game .. but i believe Coach Mo will get us focused.. XeniaBuccaneer4LifeXenia’s got a solid team, however, it seems like if they begin to make mistakes, it becomes difficult for them to get past that, and more mistakes follow. They nearly gave the game away to Tipp, and they let Butler hang around much closer than they should have. They may be able to get through it ok for the rest of the regular season, but if they run into a solid team in the playoffs, it may cost them a game.
I am not sure what a Winton Woods smoke is...but I think the general consensus of every team in R8 is to avoid Winton Woods (and Kings) for as long as possible. I would say the same about Moeller in R4 or Marion Local in R24.Y'all acting like you don't want this Winton Woods smoke.
