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.

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.

LOUISVILLE  As the final seconds ticked off the clock, many St. Thomas Aquinas fans stood silently, staring at the scoreboard in disbelief. The Knights had played well. They had controlled the line of scrimmage, dominating with their run game.

The Knights thought they deserved to win.

Perry senior Keishaun Sims is on the verge of joining a select club in Stark County high school football history — the 2,000-yard rushing club in a season. He is 60 yards shy of becoming the first Perry Panther to reach that mark.
