We began with the two-time defending Division One state champions, St. Edward. The Eagles’ quest to become a three-time D-1 state champ resumed tonight in Lakewood. The (9-1) Eagles welcomed (1-9) Elyria. St. Ed’s won 42-0.
The defending Division IV state champion Glenville Tarblooders took on Bath (Lima). Ted Ginn senior’s squad are heavy favorites to repeat despite its (7-3) record which includes losses to D-1 powerhouse (10-0) Avon, D-2 juggernaut (8-1) Hoban, and IMG Academy in Florida. Glenville won 44-0.
Finally, it was a historic night at Villa Angela-St. Joes. A week after hosting their first home game in 73 years at their brand-new turf field at Gutbrod Field, the Vikings (7-3) hosted their first home playoff game when they welcomed University (6-4). Should be another exciting night at VASJ on the lake. Villa Angela-St. Joes won 48-14.
