Lake Blue Streaks Team News

Two weeks ago, Jeff Durbin was watching a second-round playoff game between Cleveland Glenville and Midview on Sports Time Ohio when he saw a graphic listing the schools with the most playoff victories without winning a state title.

The All-Stark Division V regional semifinal featuring Sandy Valley and Central Catholic will be played within the county.
Massillon Paul Brown Tiger Stadium will be the site of the game, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Sandy Valley (10-1) is the second seed, while Central (8-3) is the third seed.

WORTHINGTON  The farewell hugs were emotional.

No one should be surprised. The Lake Blue Streaks took pride in qualifying for the playoffs for the first time in five years. The last thing they wanted was to make an early exit.

Week 11: Playoffs Begin

Here's the complete schedule of playoff games, involving area teams, in Week 11:

- All Friday games kick off at 7:30 p.m.

Twelve area teams — including four from the Federal League — are headed to the playoffs.

Perry, fresh off its big Week 10 win over GlenOak to claim a share of the Federal League title, ended the season on top of Division II, Region 5.

GREEN  Perry, GlenOak, McKinley and Lake were playoff locks. Jackson still had hopes entering Friday. And even Hoover had a Federal League win to its credit.
