LEXINGTON TWP The Marlington Dukes have a brand new season to look forward to Saturday night.

What happened during the latter stages of the old one won’t matter if they come out victorious.

Marlington High School is giving up home-field advantage for its playoff game Saturday, but the Dukes are still keeping the game close to home and in Stark County.

Stark County is well represented in the 2012 Ohio High School Athletic Association playoffs. Half of the eight spots in the region that Stark County schools are in will go to local schools, and two of them will meet Saturday night in a rematch between Federal League rivals.

ALLIANCE  As the seconds ticked away near the end of the fourth quarter, Alliance fans began to count down along with the clock.
