Liberty Center gearing up for big Colonel Crawford team

Liberty Center will face a “big” challenge when it travels to North Robinson on Saturday against Colonel Crawford in the D-VI, Region 22 quarterfinals.
The 7-0 Eagles sport major size going into the dustup with the 6-2 Tigers, which have won six straight after opening the season 0-2.
“On film they look really good,” said LC headman Casey Mohler. “They’re big, they’re strong, they’re athletic. They seem to have a lot of weapons and it’s really hard to find a weak spot on that team. The initial look for us is it’s going to be a challenge for us to put points on the board and try to stop them.”
Colonel Crawford runs a Wing-T offense but mixes in some spread concepts. Junior tailback Tristan Cross is a load coming out of the backfield. The 6-1, 215-pounder is just 29 yards shy of 1,000 yards for the season on 114 carries while adding 15 touchdowns. Cade Hamilton (6-3, 200, 58 carries, 478 yards, 9 TDs) also handles totes out of the Eagles’ backfield.

Big-play Northwood vs. explosive Fairview in D-VI skirmish

Fairview will see a major uptick in competition when the 7-0 and third-seeded Apaches play host to 7-0 and No. 6 seed Northwood on Saturday night in the D-VI, Region 22 playoffs.
The regional quarterfinal will be played at Defiance’s Fred J. Brown Stadium to accomodate more fans than what Fairview’s home stadium would be able to.
Saturday’s winner will advance to the regional semifinals against the victor from Liberty Center at Colonel Crawford.
The 7-0 Rangers will be the first team Fairview has played all year that has more than four wins. Northwood has won 17 straight games since losing in the opening round of the 2018 playoffs to Hillsdale. The Rangers went 10-0 last year but did not qualify for the Division V, Region 18 playoffs with finishing ninth in the computer ratings.

Archbold facing big and physical Carey squad

Division VI, Region 22 top seed Archbold returns to the gridiron on Saturday looking to continue its winning ways. The unbeaten 7-0 Streaks will host 7-1 Carey with a regional semifinal appearance at stake next week against the victor from Tinora at Columbus Grove.
Carey heads into Saturday’s contest on a 7-game winning streak. The Blue Devils fell 16-7 in their season opener to Region 22 No. 2 seed Colonel Crawford.
“Winning the turnover battle will be critical this week,” said Archbold coach David Dominique. “Both teams do not turn the ball over much so I feel that this is even more important than ever this week. Secondly, I feel that special teams will play an integral role in the winner of this game.”

LC holds off Western Reserve rally

LIBERTY CENTER – A 28-0 halftime Liberty Center halftime lead shrunk to nearly one possession early in the fourth quarter before the Tigers tallied two late scores to post a 42-18 victory over Collins Western Reserve on Saturday night in D-VI, Region 22 playoff action.
The seventh-seeded 6-2 Tigers will face No. 2 seed Colonel Crawford (7-0) next Saturday night in the regional quarterfinals.
Already with a commanding lead, LC was looking to buck the Roughriders on the first possession of the second half.
However, LC fumbled the kick return and Western Reserve recovered at the Tigers’ 30.
“To start off that second half like that was about the worst-case scenario,” explained Liberty coach Casey Mohler. “We talked at halftime about coming out and setting the tone. We just didn’t set the right tone. We kind of got our backs against the wall. I thought we stepped up in the fourth quarter and sealed the deal.”
