Official word comes Sunday from the Ohio High School Athletic Association on who made the state football playoffs and how they will match up.

But until then, is the website all high school football coaches, players and fans are descending upon. And the Minerva Lions liked what they saw there Saturday night.

Dover did it again.

And was dominant in doing so.

Dover coach Dan Ifft was not happy with the way his scout team was playing against the first-string defense Tuesday night.

He expects more from them in practice.

Danny Jeandervin has not been physically able to help the Dover Tornadoes this season.

But he has spiritually.

Dover is in the East Central Ohio League championship driver’s seat.
