As the 2nd round of playoff games on tap tonight there are very intriguing matchups as we start to see who are the State Championship contenders from the teams who had good seasons but just not good enough.
Here's some key playoff matchups
(3) Trotwood vs (2) Tippecanoe
@ Wayne HS
Tipp rolled over Piqua last week, and now faces Trotwood, who also had a big W last week vs Celina.
There are reports that the Tippecanoe fan base was chanting "We want Trotwood";
Maybe they were feeling good after whipping the team the Rams took their last L to - at home.
Maybe they feel like their high powered offense will be too much for the young Rams.
1111 they like their experience. They have a good squad, and have wrecked lots of dreams this season.
However with a healthy Raveion Hargrove we think the Rams will find a way to win.
They looked their best when in the pressure moments, and Tippecanoe won't be able to withstand the pressure of the Rams running game.
Rams win 32-24.
Alter vs Fenwick (1) - Fenwick has had a incredible season & will look to do what very few teams have done in their history, which is beat Alter twice in a season.
Fenwick shut them down earlier this season in mid-season.
But this ain't mid-season, and as we all know in Southwest Ohio, the Knights are a machine when it comes to playoff time.
Alter squeaked by last week, but I think Fenwick will do the rarely impossible; win twice vs Alter in a season.
Fenwick defeats Alter 28-27.
Can Brookville get it donight?
The Blue Devils, one of the top teams in the state, will take on Greenvillle tonight. Brookville has been nothing short of dominant. Can they keep it up?
Greenville has been playing it's best ball of late.
We're taking the Blue Devils 37-24.
Wayne vs Springboro
in a matchup of two GWOC powerhouses, can Springboro pull off the major upset?
Wayne has been nothing short of dominant this season, and will have their heels clicking as they get ready for another showdown, which seems like they're playing in every week. With so many weapons can the Panthers slow down the Wayne train? Qiarterback Elijah Cunningham is a very good weapon and has had a great season but can he win the biggest game of his career?
We don't think so.
We have Wayne prevailing 37 - 20.
