Week 3 to Week 4
September 19, 2013 - Mike Mathison
Big Red -- Steubenville proved it can play in a shootout. Canada Prep gave Big Red all it could handle last week. Big Red visits Brooke and needs to make sure their minds are on the Bruins and not on next week's opponent -- Massillon.
Brooke -- The Bruins have played good football in the last two weeks, but the schedule makers did them zero favors in the first 4 weeks with three opponents being ranked in the top 10 -- Morgantown, University and Big Red.
Buckeye Local -- The Panthers have had a hard time stopping the run this year so far and Indian Creek loves to run the ball.
Catholic Central -- After three straight weeks on Route 7, the Crusaders have their home opener on Saturday against rival Toronto. CCHS is ranked in the top 10 in Division VII and it is well deserved. But, they cannot look past the Red Knights.
Edison -- A win over Bellaire last year would have been considered an upset, but not this year and that's where the Wildcats will be at 12:30 p.m. Saturday -- Nelson Field. Bellaire has yet to prove it can tackle the run on a consistent basis.
Harrison Central -- Undefeated Union Local heads to Cadiz and the young Huskies must continue their solid play on defense and be more consistent on offense.
Indian Creek -- The Redskins' ground game is outstanding as advertised, but the Redskins must stop shooting themselves in the foot.
Madonna -- The Blue Dons made a loud statement in last week's 42-7 win over Wheeling Central. The Blue Dons won both sides of the line of scrimmage. They are L. E. G. I. T.
Oak Glen -- The Golden Bears have had a hard time stopping the run and ground-and-pound John Marshall comes to town. More plays need to be made on both sides of the ball.
Toronto -- The Red Knights are coming off a great road win and will visit rival Catholic Central on Saturday. The Red Knights' defense must continue to make plays.
Weir -- Other than Buckeye Local, not sure anyone has had a tougher three weeks than the Red Riders, facing three Buckeye 8 opponents while trying to install a new offense. Those in street clothes last week will all be in pads and that bodes well for the Red Riders, seeking their first win of the season.
