Week 2

September 3, 2010 - Mike Mathison

Most high school football fans of the 11 teams we cover will hit the road tonight.

To me, the most intriguing match will be when Edison visits Martins Ferry. The Wildcats are coming off an impressive 36-18 win over Oak Glen. I like Edison here. I think the Cats have something to prove to nobody other than themselves and I see them making a loud noise tonight.

Indian Creek looks to go 2-0 as it hosts Cleveland John Hay for the last time. John Hay will not be back next year. It's time to put up for the Redskins.

Harrison Central and its inexperience under experienced coach Justin Kropka will go to 2-0 as it visits Jimmy Carey Stadium and Weir High. The Red Riders did not score last week and the Huskies put up 47 at Claymont.

Brooke travels to Parkersburg South and I see another statement from Lazear, DiNardo, Morris, Paesano, Faulkner and the crew tonight. And that statement will be a 2-0 record.

Toronto is coming off a brutal loss to rival Wellsville and having a soft place to land would have been great. Unfortunately, that soft place is not in Bridgeport.

Catholic Central had a bit of a tough time stopping the run last week against Bridgeport and Ridgewood, tonight's opponent, runs it better than the Bulldogs.

Oak Glen needs some love and that should come in the form of a power running game. Giving the ball to Chance Rowland and Dustin Davis spells a win.

Madonna visits Paden City and will move to 2-0. The Wildcats are struggling and tonight will be no different.

Buckeye Local's Josten Dear was injured in the first quarter last week against Martins Ferry. With or without him, St. Clairsville is better.

Saturday sees Steubenville Big Red visiting Woodland Hills and the inaugural Rally in the Wolverena, taking on WPIAL juggernaut McKeesport at 11 a.m. I'll take Big Red big. That defense is just too fast.
