Our Kolczun & Kolczun Stream 2 Gridiron Clash features Olmsted Falls and Anthony Wayne in the DII Region 6 Championship. It is safe to say that the Bulldogs have learned from their mistakes in the regular season. Having lost three regular season games, Olmsted Falls corrected two of those losses in the first two rounds of the postseason. In their semifinal match up with Westlake, the Bulldogs run game, led by Spence Linville, plowed through the Demons for a 49-21 victory. Their opponent this week also draws their strength from their run game, but uses speed in place of force. The duo of Evan Brown and Nick Schneider proved to be to much for Avon Lake to handle last Friday night as the Generals earned a 14-6 win over the Shoremen. Power and speed hit the field on Friday night starting at 7pm. You can hear the game live by clicking on the helmets.
