Postseason High School Football on WEOL

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

The high school football postseason kicks-off this Friday night on WEOL with three great games. Then on Saturday we keep the action coming with one more.

It’s three Kolczun & Kolczun Gridiron Classhes on AM930 and WEOL.com Friday night.

FRIDAY

Olentangy LorainOn the radio and stream 1 we take you to the DI Region 2 bracket where the Lorain Titans host the Olentagy Braves. The Titans have not lost a game since week two of the season. Last week they captured their first conference championship since Admiral King had accomplished the task back in 2010. Olentangy finished the regular season 7-3 with a 28-21 win over Westerville Central in the final week of the season. The mark was good enough for them to capture second place in the Ohio Capital Conference Buckeye Division. Pregame for the Titans and Braves begins at 7:00pm on Friday night.

Avon Lake AvonOur Kolczun & Kolczun Stream 2 Gridiron Clash game this week takes us back to the SWC for Avon vs. Avon Lake in the DII Region 6 bracket. When the two teams met earlier this season, back in week two,  the Eagles topped the Shoremen  31-7. The Shoremen will look for revenge Friday night when they cross the tracks into Eagle territory. For the Shoremen to find success, quarterback Mark Pappas must be on his “A” game like he was in the final week of the season. In the Shoremen’s  win over North Olmsted, the senior quarterback threw for 326 yards and three touchdown. The Eagles will focus on a strong run game that saw running back Mason McMcLemore push forward for 98 yards and a touchdown in their victory of Olmsted Falls last Friday. This Friday night’s grudge match begins at 7:00pm on weol.com stream 2. Click on the helmets to hear the game.

 

Ofalls MidviewWe stay put in the SWC and the DII Region 6 bracket for our Kolczun & Kolczun Stream 3 Gridiron Clash. Our final match-up of the night features yet another great rivalry between conference foes when Olmsted Falls travels to Midview. The two teams last met back in week seven. Despite an impressive performance by the Bulldogs defense, it was Midview who claimed the victory 28-21. Once again the Bulldogs defense will be tested by Midview quarterback Dustin Crum who has averaged over 200 passing and rushing yards a game this season. Olmsted Falls will give the ball to their bruising full-back Spencer Linville who has equally impressive number on the ground. Pregame begins at 7:00pm Friday night.
