1st Round Recap; Wayne, thumps Lancaster, Burg, Troy, Alter Advance; Saturday Matchups

It was a good day for most of the Miami Valley in the 1st day of the OHSAA  playoffs. Here's the lowdown on Fridays games...

Wayne Captain Matt Wilcox runs past Lancaster for a TD
Wayne thumps Lancaster 
 Wayne (10-0-1) left no doubt about what time it was, scoring on its first 6 possessions to have a 42-0 halftime lead & cruise to a 52-7 win. "Blue" Smith scored twice while Matt Wilcox scored on a 75 yard pass from Mckee late in the half.
  Even Lancaster Coach Rob Carpenter knew what time it was saying, "Even the most hardcore Lancaster fan had to see the speed difference" as Wayne ran over, around, and through the Golden Gaels.

Miamisburg wins at home behind Clark 
 The Burg  (9-2) stormed out to a big lead behind the running of Tony Clark, and held on for a big win against Kings 28-24.  Clark amassed 226 yards on 22 carries and the offensive line opened up hole after hole for the Vikings.  Kings made a late run, but Miamisburg held on for a big win.
Up next? Troy

Springfield falls in Pickerington
 Springfield battled, but couldn't keep up with Pickerington Central, who scored twice late in the 2nd quarter, once on a WR pass to get separation (21-7) & set Pickerington on their way to a win. Danny Davis scored on a big 28-yard pass play from Leonard Taylor, but it wasn't enough for the Wildcats, who end the season 7-4.

Browder career night leads Troy to W  
 Star RB Josh Browder scored 5 times to lead a offensive shootout as the Trojans defeated Cincy Anderson 41-35.
Browder had 243 yards rushing and 114 yards recieving, in which Anderson had no match for. Anderson held its own behind Jay Volpenhein's 404 yards passing and 5 TDs. Anderson almost pulled off the upset, but the D stopped Anderson on the 4 yard line to secure the win.

#1 ranked Colerain ends Springboro season 
 Colerain  did damage both thru the air (Gunner Layendecker, 2 TD passes)  & on the ground (Monalo  Caldwell, 176 yards rushing, 3 TDs) as they grounded the Panthers 35-14. Springboro receivers Kris Hughes and Nick Kovacs caught TDs, but it was nowhere near enough to stop Colerain.

#1 Alter storms past Indian Hill 
 Alter did what they always do - win in the 1st round easily - as the Knights running game pulverized Indian Hill and the Knights rolled 54-28.

Valley View shuts out Waverly  
 The View came out firing on all cylinders as Star QB Colin Genslinger ran for 3 TDs to jump start the offense and the D put on the shutout for the Spartans (10-1).

Lebanon early turnovers too much to overcome
 Lebanon turned the ball over 3 times in the 1st quarter, and on the first offensive play of the game, as Cincy Sycamore won on the road 42-20.
  It had been 14 years since the Warriors were in the playoffs, and the jitters probably doomed the Warriors who were down 21-0 before they knew it. Star RB Ra'Von Bonner ran for 254 and 3 TDs on the Warriors.

Taft falls to Clinton Massie  
Cincy Taft, one of the teams selected in after Dunbar forfeiture, lost against Clinton Massie 26-12. Taft held the lead early, but Massie rallied to seal the deal.

Saturday Games: 


Tippecanoe (7-3)  @ Franklin (10-0)  
Can Tipp win a big game this season? Or will Franklin continue its dream season? Franklin has a bevy of weapons on O, can Tipp shut them down?.
 We got Franklin winning 30-23.

Trotwood Madison (9-1) @ Wapakoneta (8-2)
Can Wapakoneta knock off another city team in Trotwood? Last year Wapak defeated Belmont. However Trotwood is completely different than Belmont, in their style, as the Rams haven't lost since Week 1. Look for a hungry Rams team to win in a hostile environment 28-17.

Belmont (7-2)  @  St Mary's Memorial (9-1) 
 Can Belmont use its 2nd life and make a deep run? After seemingly out, now they find themselves back in the playoffs for a 2nd consecutive season. With a hard core running game, and talent on the Defensive end, can the get the job done against a St Mary's team that has been clicking on all cylinders? .
  We think Belmont will get the job done in a upset 24-22.


McGuffey Upper Scioto  Valley (7-3)  @ Troy Christian (9-1) 
Can Troy Christian Continue its winning ways with a big W at home vs a tough opponent? 
We got Troy Christian getting it done.
