Howland seeks Trumbull’s first soccer title

HOWLAND — Steady, cold rain poured down on the boys clad in all-white uniforms. Their keeper, Michael Schwartz, did everything he could to keep every shot on goal from connecting with the intertwined white netting on one end of the bright, blue turf at Ravenna Stadium. It’s a familiar ...

Eagles take flight

INDEPENDENCE — Friday night wasn’t an ideal evening for quarterbacks. Blustering winds combined with bitterly cold conditions made for a miserable night to be throwing the ball around Independence High School’s Alumni Field. Apparently no one told that to John F. Kennedy’s Christian ...

McDonald edged in OT by Lucas

LUCAS — McDonald High School football coach Dan Williams looked over his team in the postgame huddle. He wished it was a different result, so did his players. Senior speedster Cameron Tucker took the football from Dominic Schadl’s hands and started to head toward the Lucas sideline. ...

G-Men blitzed by Garaway

GARRETTSVILLE — The Garfield G-Men earned the first home playoff game in school history by finishing the regular season with a 9-1 record. The G-Men were seeded No. 3 in Division V, Region 17 and hosted sixth-seeded Sugarcreek Garaway (9-2) Saturday evening in Garrettsville. The ...

Perry has advantage this time against Girard

PERRY — There won’t be a return trip to the Division IV state championship game for the Girard Indians. The Indians ran into a buzzsaw against the Perry Pirates Saturday night at Alumni Stadium on the campus of Perry High School, as they fell 48-7 in the opening round of the Division IV, ...

Following the trend: Kennedy back in postseason

WARREN — It’s not a right of passage for the John F. Kennedy football team to be in the playoffs. It just seems that way since Jeff Bayuk took over six years ago. The Eagles are back in the postseason and hope to start another run as they travel to fourth-seeded Independence at 7 p.m. ...

Let’s do it again

WARREN — Massillon came into Mollenkopf Stadium in Week 3, displaying its offensive and defensive skills against Warren G. Harding’s football team in a 49-7 rout. Aiden Longwell had 200 yards passing and two scores. Longwell, a Kent State University baseball recruit, has more than 1,700 ...

Young McDonald team fought its way to playoffs

Blue Devils face long trip

Among all area qualifiers, McDonald will make the longest first-round trip. The Blue Devils must make a two-hour, 120-mile trek to Lucas. The Devils (6-4) finished seventh in Division VII, Region 25 while the Cubs (8-2) finished second. “Obviously, this isn’t the best-case scenario for ...

Another obstacle overcome

BARBERTON — Sunday is reserved for football. Or “futbol” if you are following the Howland High School boys soccer team. The Tigers eked out a 3-2 win over Lexington in a Division II state semifinal Wednesday night at Rudy Sharkey Stadium in Barberton and will play Tipp City Tippecanoe ...

Girard in third straight playoff appearance

The Girard High School football program made history this season, and few outside the program have noticed. After being seeded fifth in Division IV, Region 13 last season and reaching the state championship game before losing 42-14 to Cincinnati Wyoming to finish 13-2, not many outside the ...

Howland has overcome plenty of obstacles

For a team that is now 20-0-1 and playing in its first final four, one would think that the journey wasn’t filled with obstacles and challenges. However, that isn’t the case for the Howland boys soccer team, which has overcome some issues and also needed a 1-0 shootout win (4-2 in penalty ...

G-Men get home playoff game after near misses

The Garfield football team entered the season with a chip on its shoulder after two consecutive seasons without a playoff appearance. That chip fueled the G-Men to a 9-1 record, their best regular season since 2005, and they will be hosting the first playoff game in school history on ...
