Week 13 MAC Playoff Previews

week13MACFor the second week in a row, all three Midwest Athletic Conference teams logged playoff victories and advanced toward their respective goals of state football championships in the coming weeks.  The Delphos St. John’s Blue Jays and Coldwater Cavaliers had little trouble in their respective regional semi-final contests, while the Marion Local Flyers made things interesting by pulling out their victory in the closing minute.  Coldwater dismantled Doylestown Chippewa 49-21 in Tiffin while over in Findlay, the Blue Jays eliminated the Tiffin Calvert Senecas, 42-10.  In Piqua, the Flyers needed a last-minute touchdown to pull ahead of Covington before going on to win by the 35-28 final.  This week on Saturday, the Blue Jays will square off with Arlington at Lima Stadium, Coldwater will face Huron at Donnell Stadium in Findlay and Marion Local will return to Piqua to meet up with unbeaten Triad in the regional finals.

MARION LOCAL – TRIAD

Last week, the Flyers bashed helmets with Covington knowing their possessions would be limited.  In the first half, Covington had three offensive series, while the Flyers had only two.  Unfortunately for Flyer fans, they found themselves down 14-7 at intermission.  The Blue and Gold climbed back into it though and with 2:34 remaining, went on their final drive of the night which ended with a touchdown pass from Adam Bertke to Troy Homan with less than 30 seconds to play.  The score bumped the Flyers in front for good, 35-28.  Homan finished the game with eight catches for 65 yards and a pair of scores, while Bertke connected on 16 of his 28 pass attempts for 199 yards and three touchdowns.  “A game like that is hard to predict sometimes – we knew that the Covington was an excellent team with a very unique offense,” Flyer head coach Tim Goodwin explained.  “We prepared the best that we could and our players played hard and it was just a tight game overall.  Adam Bertke was clutch when we needed him just as he has done for us many times in the playoffs before.  Hunter Wilker and Troy Homan also made some big plays, and Austin Albers had a huge catch on fourth down at the end of the game. Overall, our kids played as hard as they could.

The 12-0 Flyers will return to Alexander Stadium this week to face top-seeded Triad, who brings an identical 12-0 record to the table.   The Cardinals hit week 13 on the heels of playoff victories over league-foe Cedarville and Sidney Lehman and have enjoyed eight victories against teams with winning records this season.  “Triad is a spread team with good balance between run and pass,” Goodwin pointed out.  “They have been battling injuries and they had a very gutty performance against Lehman with many of their better players not able to go.  They are another undefeated team with a lot of resolve, so we just need to continue doing our thing.”

COLDWATER – HURON

The Cavaliers wasted little time last week setting the tone in their victory over the Chipps by going 70 yards in eight plays in a drive that was capped off with a 13-yard pass from quarterback Brody Hoying to Adam Klosterman.  Coldwater added another touchdown a little later in the opening period before taking a 21-0 command into the locker room with them at halftime, as the Orange and Black out-offensed the Chipps 315-56 in the opening two periods.  They continued to add to their advantage with another touchdown less than a minute into the third quarter, and continued to roll from there by building a 49-0 lead before the Chipps scored three times at the end of the third and throughout the fourth quarter.  “Things definitely went the way we had hoped on Saturday,” remarked Coldwater head coach Chip Otten.  “The offense executed well and made big plays with several guys touching the ball. The defense was also very physical up front and stopped the run.  Our offensive and defensive lines were the standouts for the game – we really dominated the line of scrimmage with our technique and athleticism.  Offensively, center Austin Klosterman, guards Blake Spangler and Caleb Madaj, and tackles Jared Post and Nick Clune got the job done as did defensive linemen  Mitch Fullenkamp and Austin Klosterman at tackles and Nick Clune and Andrew Schwieterman on the ends.”

This week, the Cavaliers will tangle with Huron, a program they eliminated from the Division IV post-season in 2004 and again in 2005.  Huron meets them with an overall record of 9-3 with two of their losses coming to 11-1 Clyde and 11-1 Sandusky Perkins.  The Tigers closest victory unfolded last week when they edged Loudonville 17-13 and they are currently riding a two game winning streak after their regular season-ending loss to Clyde, 30-6.  “We have watched Huron on film and they are a solid team with an explosive quarterback,” commented Otten.  “They are similar to us in that they have athleticism across the board with multiple playmakers on offense and eleven guys who can run on defense.  Controlling a Brody Hoying-like quarterback will be the biggest challenge for us in Findlay on Saturday.   We will need to find what tools will work for us as the game goes along on offense – we feel like we have enough weapons to move the ball, but it’s finding the right ones at the right the time that will be the key.”

DELPHOS ST. JOHN’S – ARLINGTON

Last week against Tiffin Calvert, St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte had two objectives – continue to establish strong play up front while maintaining a powerful running attack and prevent Calvert’s all-everything quarterback from striking with big plays.  When the dust settled, the Blue Jay’s mission was accomplished on both fronts as they left Donnell Stadium with the 42-10 victory.  Senior running back Tyler Jettinghoff was a one-man wrecking crew for the Blue Jays as he rushed for 199 yards on 23 carries and crossed the goal line for all six of St. John’s touchdowns.  He picked up touchdown runs of 2, 65, 2, 36, and 8, while adding an 84-yard kickoff return to his evening to open the second half.  The 32-point victory helped the Jays to improve to 8-4 on the season, including victories in their last six games.  “I thought early in the game that we may have been a little surprised by the speed on their defensive line, but once we got comfortable with that it was business as usual,” head coach Todd Schulte pointed out.  “I thought our defensive line and backs played very well throughout the game – we had nine tackles for loss and eight pass blocks, so that is definitely something that will need to continue.”

St. John’s will take on Arlington this week, another program they have enjoyed a successful post-season against in the past.  The Blue Jays topped Arlington in the playoffs 24-7 in 2008, while blasting them again the following year by a final of 56-0.  The Red Devils come into the regional finals as the winners of three straight including last week’s playoff victory over Hicksville, 54-14.  Their three setbacks this season were to McComb, Liberty Center, and Liberty Benton.  “They are big up front on both sides of the ball and are led by their standout tailback,” Schulte advised.  “He has rushed for over 1800 yards and close to 40 touchdowns this season, and in the past two weeks alone he has picked up 505 yards!  The key for us this week will be to slow down the run game.”

Week 12 MAC Playoff Previews

football_150Three Midwest Athletic Conference teams began their playoff trek last week and each survived for another week as they prepare for their respective regional semi-finals this Saturday.  Coldwater upended Eastwood 42-16 last Saturday, while Delphos St. John’s eliminated Leipsic 33-18, and Marion Local blasted Fort Loramie, 63-14.  Since 1981, the MAC is 51-1 all-time in opening-round playoff games against teams from outside the conference.  This weekend, the Cavaliers will square off with Doylestown Chippewa, while St. John’s will meet Tiffin Calvert, and Marion Local will face Covington.

MARION LOCAL – COVINGTON
Last week, the Flyers had no trouble kicking the Fort Loramie Redskins from the post-season.  Flyer fans welcomed the return of several individuals who have missed recent weeks due to injury, but especially quarterback Adam Bertke, who finished the game 7/8 for 137 yards and two touchdowns.  The Pitt-bound senior also ran for a pair of scores in the victory.  “We played at a high level offensively which was nice to see with some of our guys playing after being out for a period of time,” Flyer head coach Tim Goodwin explained.  “Adam is our leader offensively – he is talented and has played in so many big games.  Getting him back right in time for the playoffs gave us a big boost mentally.  The fact that we didn’t punt and scored nine touchdowns was definitely a pleasant surprise.”

On Saturday at Alexander Stadium in Piqua, the Flyers will tangle with the Covington Buccs, who currently sit at 11-0 overall.  The Buccs closest game in 2013 was a 22-14 win over Tri-County North, but other than that they blasted opponents by an average of 46 points.  Covington is 0-8 in post-season play against the MAC since 1996, with four of those losses coming to the Flyers,   The two squads last squared off in 2009, with the Flyers capturing the 20-17 victory.  “Covington runs a flex-bone option attack, something that we have not seen since we played them in 2009,” Goodwin pointed out.  “It is unique and their whole philosophy is different from what is the norm right now in our league.  Possessions will be limited so we need to be efficient when we have the ball.  Defensively, we need to be disciplined and physical in order to come out on top this week.”

COLDWATER – DOYLESTOWN CHIPPEWA
The Cavaliers opened their 18th consecutive post-season by dismantling Pemberville Eastwood 42-16.  This week, Coldwater fans will make another long haul when they head to Tiffin to bash helmets with the Doylestown Chippewa Chips.  “Distance is not an issue for us,” head coach Chip Otten assured.  “We make sure we aren’t rushed – we stop at a rest area along the way and travel pretty relaxed.  Both teams have to travel now, so it really isn’t a disadvantage.”

Against Eastwood, the Coldwater running game was dominant with 272 yards, and Otten expects the same this week while realizing the passing attack will also need to get into the mix.  Brody Hoying ran for 223 yards, while Mitch Schoenherr added 37 on eight carries in their week 11 victory that pushed their team to 9-2 on the season.  “We are continuing to run the ball very well with Brody Hoying and Mitch Schoenherr,” Otten remarked.  “Plus, our four or five receivers make enough plays that it is hard focus on one person.  The offensive line has also continued to be aggressive and athletic, springing our athletes offensively.  Once our defense got a feel for Eastwood’s speed in the Wing-T, our guys were very disciplined in their assignments and pretty much shut down the running game and we are looking for that to continue this week.”

Eighth-seeded Chippewa is currently 9-2 and has averaged nearly 44 points per game in their nine wins.  They are enjoying a seven-game winning streak including their 62-28 opening-round victory last week over previously unbeaten Columbia.  “Chippewa is new to the playoff scene as of late, but they have good size and different playmakers that they count on.  We need to remain disciplined in our defensive assignments and keep playing with the energy that we have been.  We also need to improve our passing attack and take advantage of alignments when the opportunities present themselves to come out with a victory this week.”

DELPHOS ST. JOHN’S – TIFFIN CALVERT
With their 33-18 victory over Leipsic last week, the St. John’s Blue Jays improved to 7-4 on the season and earned a date with 7-4 Tiffin Calvert Senecas in Findlay this Saturday.  Calvert is 1-3 against the MAC all-time in post-season action, and they have fallen to the conference in their last three meetings including 35-0 to St. John’s in 2011.  “We have been in one-and-done mode since week seven,” commented St. John’s head coach Todd Schulte.  “There really hasn’t been any change in our focus or preparation, so we try to keep things as close as possible to how we prepared back in the regular season.”

The Blue Jays trailed 7-6 early against Leipsic, but a 60-yard run by Tyler Jettinghoff fueled a 21-point outburst that gave St. John’s a 27-7 lead at intermission.  Luke MacLennan paced the Blue Jay running attack with 172 yards, while Jettinghoff finished his night with 150 yards on 20 carries.  “Our plan offensively was to run the ball and we were able to run for more than 400 yards,” Schulte pointed out.  “On the other side of the ball, I felt that our secondary played their best game of the year.”

Like St. John’s, Tiffin Calvert got off to a slow start this season, but turned things around in a hurry.  After starting 0-3, the Senecas have won six straight and seven of their last eight contests.  Last week, they advanced with a 34-31 triumph over Edon and are led by junior quarterback Tyler Long.  “Their quarterback is ‘Mr. Do-It-All’,” Schulte praised.  “For us to have success this week, we will need to slow him down!”
