Ravens down Warriors in opener

LIMA – If you were in attendance Saturday night at Lima Stadium you witnessed a knock down drag out brawl between two of the nation’s elite semi-pro teams.

Billy Cozad of the Warriors started off the game by returning the opening kickoff 35 yards for Lima, but the Warriors were forced to punt after they could only muster 16 total yards. Detroit was not much better in their opening possession, giving up a sack while only gaining 8 yards before their first punt of the contest.

Defense was the story of the first quarter for both teams, except for a momentary lapse by the Lima secondary that allowed Detroit QB Mike Akrawi to find Edward Thomas for a 92 yard score to put the Ravens on top 6-0 after a botched extra point attempt with 2:21 left in the first stanza.

Following the second Lima punt of the game early on in the second quarter the Ravens gave the ball right back as Cozad picked off a pass and returned it 19 yards to give the Warriors the ball at the Ravens 31 yardline midway through the second quarter. Again defense was the story early as Detroit forced a turnover on downs to get the ball back from the Warriors offense.

With just 6:38 left in the first half Lima finally got on the board behind a 10 yard scamper from Yansey Donald that capped off a 4 play drive and made it 7-6 after Jason Diley banged home the extra point.

Detroit picked up a safety when a ball was misplayed off of a punt return in the endzone just a couple of minutes into the second half to go up 8-7 for the only score by either team in the third quarter.

Jordan Marshall who had been having a relatively quiet game by his personal lofty standards punished a Detroit wideout and forced him to cough up the ball before it was grabbed by Yansey Donald who flew 33 yards to the house to make it 13-8 Warriors. The ensuing two point conversion pass attempt by Cozad fell incomplete to keep the score difference at five with 7:58 left in the game.

The Ravens offense added the final score of the game with 3:57 to go by capping off a 76 yard drive with a 1 yard touchdown run by Wyatt Jones and made the two point conversion to run the score to 16-13 in favor of the visitors.

Lima had two possessions in the final minutes but two costly interceptions by Billy Cozad sealed the fate of the Warriors on this night and gave Detroit their fourth win against just one loss in the series between these two midwestern powers.

Lima finished the night with 261 total yards (126 rushing, 135 passing) while the victorious Ravens finished with 401 total yards (164 rushing, 237 passing) on the night.

With the win Detroit improves to 1-0 while the Warriors drop to 0-1.

Saturday night the Warriors kick off HFL South Conference play for the first time as they will host the 2008 AAA National Champion West Virginia Lightning. Kickoff is slated for 7:05pm and has been deemed a RED OUT.

Here come the champs

LIMA – Two of the most recognized and successful semi-pro football teams in the Midwest will meet this weekend as the Detroit Ravens and Lima Warriors open the season against one another Saturday night at Lima Stadium.

Detroit will enter the contest as one of only four active teams to have a winning record against the Warriors, having won three of the four meetings between these two I-75 rivals including last year 13-0. Utilizing a blocked punt in the endzone and a timely interception, the Ravens were able to use their staunch defense to hold the Warriors high octane offense in check by shutting Lima out, something the Warriors historically are not known for having happen to them.

Two years ago in Ada it was the Warriors who were victorious over the Ravens behind then(and now) Head Coach Rich Stotts, the only coach in franchise history to beat Detroit. “When I came back as head coach this time Detroit was the first team I called to get on our schedule for this year” Stotts said in reference to opening with the Ravens in an interview earlier this week.

Seventeen contests last season ended with the Ravens walking away with the winners share of the purse on their way to a National Championship in which they beat the HFL Champion Columbus Fire, and you can bet they will be looking to continue that streak this weekend at the Warriors expense.

One thing is certain, the winner of this one will be in the drivers seat in the early season national rankings as both finished 2012 ranked inside the top 10 teams in their respective rankings.

Catch the action from Lima Stadium live as it happens on www.limawarriors.com as the “Voice of the Warriors” Mike Hirn, Steve Wiener and Ben Sherman will bring you all of the action. Kickoff is slated for 7pm with a season opening pregame show set for 6:30pm.

Also check out Coach Stotts and Mike Hirn on the Lima Warriors Coaches Show Wednesday night at 7pm on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/limawarriors to hear his thoughts on the Ravens matchup as well as being back as the Warriors head coach.

Warriors set to kickoff 2013 season

LIMA – The Lima Warriors are set to kick off their 13th season by facing one of the best teams in the country, the Detroit Ravens.
Detroit will come to town sporting a 3-1 all-time record against the Warriors, including a 13-0 win last season en route to a 17-0 season and a National Championship.

Week two will see Lima playing in their first game as a member of the HFL South as for the first time the Pataskala Chaos will make their way inside Lima Stadium for a 7pm kickoff.

Another first time opponent will be welcomed to town on June 8th as the Miami Valley Thunder, another new member of the Heartland Football League will attempt to take down Warriors Offensive Coordinator Jim Worden’s new offense.

The remaining Warriors home games will showcase the first of two meetings between Lima and the Pickerington Wildcats, and a renewal of a formerly red hot rivalry with the Columbus War Eagles to finish off the home slate on July 13th.

Last season’s away slate of games saw the Warriors travel over 2,500 miles. This season will see more of the same as the Warriors will head on the road to both Racine Wisconsin to play eight time National Champion Racine’s Raiders July 6th as well as to Dunbar, WV to face off with the West Virginia Lightning on June 15th. Throw in a trip to play the defending HFL Champion Columbus Fire in Columbus on June 29th.

The Warriors of 2013 will look drastically different than those of 2012. Gone is Head Coach Sean Liles who has been re-replaced by Rich Stotts, the former defensive coordinator who went 14-1 in his lone season at the helm in 2011 while leading the Warriors to the HFL Championship game. Long time college coach Jim Worden will assume the team’s offensive coordinator role. Worden hopes to utilize the vast experience of his past in the collegiate game in leading Lima back to the Heartland Football League championship, for the first time as a member of the south conference.

Vikings outlast Bulldogs

COLUMBUS GROVE – Back and forth we go.

2-0 Columbus Grove and 1-0 Leipsic, the frontrunners in most people’s minds for the Putnam County League this year in baseball met up in Columbus Grove on Friday in a game that could decide the PCL title later in the season.

Leipsic got on the board early as they were able to string together a couple of hits before knocking in a run to give themselves and starting pitcher Devin Mangas a 1-0 lead after the top of the first inning.

Mangas (6-1 with a 1.43 era last season) was touched by the Bulldog bats early and often in the second inning as he gave up four hits, five runs and hit a batter before being chased in favor of Logan Haselman after just an inning and two thirds.

Trailing 5-1 as they came to bat in the third, the Viking bats woke up in a hurry against Grove starter Trey Roney, scoring five runs of their own in the inning.

Both teams had a chance to put a runner across the plate in the later innings of the game but each had their scoring attempt thwarted by a rocket throw from deep in the outfield to the catcher who promptly made the tag to save the run.

In the bottom of the 7th inning with the score 6-5 in favor of the visiting Vikings, Columbus Grove with runners at second and third and two outs, the Bulldogs popped out deep to centerfield to end the contest.

With the win Leipsic improves their record to 2-0 on the season while handing Columbus Grove their first loss of the season.

Logan Haselman picked up his second win for Leipsic to up his record to 2-0 in addition to helping himself at the plate with a pair of singles. Roney was pegged as the losing pitcher of record for Grove and is now 0-1 on the season. The Bulldogs replaced Roney in the 5th inning after he went four and one third striking out two, walking two and giving up five runs(three earned) on five hits in the loss.

Titans Survive and Advance

Columbus – Survive and Advance, the motto of one Jim Valvano and his 1983 North Carolina State Wolfpack became the credo of Ottawa Glandorf this morning.

For the second straight year the Titans came into the State Semifinals but unlike last year they will advance to play for a Division 3 State Championship after surviving multiple runs from Ironton to win 61-60 in overtime.

After the first quarter Ironton led 19-12 behind 7 points in the opening stanza by Fighting Tigers 6 foot 7 power forward Trey Fletcher. Following a jumper and layup to open the second quarter from Fletcher to make it 23-12 in favor of Ironton the Titans responded with a 16-5 run to finish the quarter led by 9 points in the quarter and 17 in the half by TJ Metzger to tie at 28 heading into the break.

In the first half the Titans shot only 39.3% from the field (4-11 from 3) while Ironton shot 55% from the field (3-6 from 3). Neither team got to the free throw line that much in the first half as the Titans went 2-3 and the Fighting Tigers 3-4 from the charity stripe.

When the second half began, both teams had clearly changed their strategy from looking to shoot on the wing to a more post balanced draw the foul and get to the line oriented gameplan. Nobody was better from the free throw line in the second half than Ironton’s duo of Trey Fletcher and Trevor White who combined to finish 12-16 in their opportunities.

Ottawa Glandorf won the 3rd quarter 13-10 and lead after three 41-38. With both teams going to the ground and pound attack inside, the fouls began to mount up in bunches. The first casualty of the game came near the end of the half when Senior Trevor White fouled out for Ironton and finished his day with 14 points on a 3-3 from the field and 8-10 from the line performance in his last game for the Fighting Tigers.

With White gone the Titans went down inside to Rosebrock (3-13 shooting, 8 points 9 rebounds in 33 minutes) and Noah Bramlage(4-11 from the field, 8 points 4 rebounds in 34 minutes of work) to counter Fletcher’s unquestioned brute strength in the paint on offense.

The big guys down low may have been getting all of the looks on offense and from the refs, but it was Matthew “Chewey” Kaufman who was the most important “little” guy when it mattered as his layup with 2 seconds on the clock in regulation in which he knifed down the lane between three Fighting Tiger defenders pulled the Titans even at 56 heading into OT.

If the first half was all about the perimeter shooting(or supposed lack thereof) for both teams and the second half was all about the post players, the overtime was about how well each team could shoot from the free throw line. Ottawa Glandorf on the season only shoots 60.8% as a team from the charity stripe but didn’t show signs they aren’t the best in the state at it as Metzger iced the 61-60 win by hitting one of two free throws with 1 second remaining on the clock.

TJ Metzger finished the game with 25 points on 7-14 shooting (4-10 from 3), but it was fellow Senior Chewey Kaufman who stole away the player of the game award with his 11 point 6 assist 5 rebound performance. Kaufman came up huge all night long both in protecting the basketball and holding 1st Team All-Ohio guard Zac Carter of Ironton to 12 points on 4-16 shooting.

With the win the Titans up their record to 25-3 while the Fighting Tigers season ends at 23-3.

Who is next for OG you ask, well that would be none other than Midwest Athletic Conference’s 4th place regular season team in the 23-5 Versailles Tigers. Versailles defeated Leavittsburg Labrea 64-52 behind 21 points apiece from Damien Richard and All-Ohio selection in Sophomore Kyle Ahrens.

For Ottawa Glandorf to win their third state title overall and first since 2008 they will need to beat a very fast and streaky shooting Tigers squad much like themselves averaging 62.2 points per game.

Listen live to the game on www.zsportslive.com channel z1 on Saturday as pregame will begin around 10:20am with myself and Steve Wiener on the call. Can Ottawa Glandorf finish the mission? Tune in on Saturday to find out.

Titans return to state, Leipsic earns first birth since 1925

For the second straight year the OHSAA State Basketball Championships will feature a team from Putnam County……or two.

Joining the Ottawa Glandorf Titans in Columbus will be the Leipsic Vikings and Coach Scott Maag. Leipsic utilized their pressure and outstanding play from D4 All-Ohio First Team selection Devin Mangas to earn the schools first state birth since Calvin Coolidge was President of the United States. 5 of the 16 schools involved in the tournament the last time the Vikings made it are no longer in existence even.

Can Mangas continue the sensational run he has been on as of late in which he has put up multiple 30 point games en route to leading Leipsic to a 24-4 record and a spot in the Division 4 State Semifinals on Friday? To get his team to state and a possible matchup against likely Cleveland area powerhouse Villa Angela St Joseph he will need some help from his teammates, most notably Austin Brown and Aric Schroeder to apply the pressure to advance past 25-2 Lancaster Fairfield Christian. The Knights are led by Steven Carpenter, a 6-3 junior averaging 20 points per game, and 6-7 senior center Justin Potochnik who is averaging 18.4 points per contest. The contest will take place at 2pm from Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio and can be head on www.zsportslive.com channel z1 with Rudy Lomeli and Dave Boninsegna on the call.

Both teams starting lineups:
Leipsic:
G   3  Devin Mangas, 6-0, Sr., 18.0 ppg
F   5  Derek Steffan, 6-3, Sr., 5.4 ppg
F 10 Austin Brown, 6-3, Sr., 12.5 ppg
G 14 Caleb Barrera, 6-2, Sr., 6.3 ppg
G 24 Aric Schroeder, 5-10, Sr., 4.3 ppg

Fairfield Christian:
G 10 Zach Sullivan, 6-0, Sr., 7.5 ppg
G  11  Steven Carpenter, 6-3, Jr., 20.0 ppg
C   3  Justin Potochnik, 6-7, Sr., 18.4
F  14  Nick Spurgus, 6-4, Jr., 7.6 ppg
F  24  Tyler Stevens, 6-1, Jr., 3.9 ppg

Ottawa Glandorf’s 2011-2012 season ended in disappointing fashion as the Titans fell short of their goal of reaching the State Championship as they lost in heartbreaking fashion to Portsmouth.

OG comes into the game this year with a renewed focus and a ton of experience at the state level as they return senior and Northwest District Player of the year and D3 All-Ohio First Team selection TJ Metzger, as well as classmates and starting 5 members in Matthew “Chewey” Kaufman, Caleb Siefker and Michael Rosebrock. Experience will not be a problem for this Titans team as their starting 5 in completely intact from last season, something rare in Division 3 teams.

Matthew Kaufman cutting down the net

After getting a measure of redemption against LCC who beat them earlier in the season, the Titans dispatched a very strong shooting Bloom Carroll Bulldogs team that up to that point had only incurred one loss on the season 60-56  in OT to up their all-time record in tournament at BG to 25-4. Noah Bramlage led OG with 15 points/9 rebounds while Rosebrock and Metzger each poured in 13. Kaufman handed out 6 assists in the win, but was most dominant on defense by playing the point in the 3-2 Titans defense that was able to force Isaac McGlone (headed to Eastern Kentucky and had 30 in the game) to taking bad shots late in preserving the victory and sending Ottawa Glandorf back to Columbus.

Headed to OG in BG

OG(24-3) will face Ironton (23-2) whose only two losses this year took place at an early season tournament in Florida. Here’s a look at both teams starting lineups:
Ironton:
G  30  Zac Carter, 5-9, Sr., 23.9 ppg
G  34  Josh Glover, 5-10, Sr., 3.4 ppg
F 44 Trey Fletcher, 6-6, Sr., 20.4 ppg
F  42  Trevor White, 6-4, Sr., 9.2 ppg
C 45 Aaron Stephens, 6-4, Sr., 3.0 ppg

OG:
G 4 Matthew Kaufman, 6-0, 4.6 ppg
G  24  Caleb Siefker, 6-4, Sr., 6.0 ppg
F 23 Michael Rosebrock, 6-4, Sr., 12.9 ppg
F  31  Noah Bramlage, 6-7, So., 10.5 ppg
G  32  T.J. Metzger, 6-1, Sr., 16.1 3 ppg

Can Ottoville be stopped?

How do you stop a team on a mission?

That is a question that has been asked 27 times with no real response this season as the Big Green have continued to put up W after W in the win column.

Is Fort Loramie (25-3) the team to knock Ottoville off the top of the mountain? They certainly have the talent to do so in 1,000 point scorer 5-foot-8 junior guard Darian Rose, but can they handle the pressure Ottoville throws at you on defense for 32 minutes? Ottoville on offense will need to be able to break a full court pressure the likes of which they have not seen this season as Rose and company can force a lot of turnovers if teams are not careful with the ball. “They love to run and press,” says Ottoville Coach Dave Klemen.

The most recent meeting between these two storied programs occurred in 2010 in the Regional Semifinals with the Redskins claiming a 48-30 victory by forcing 20 Big Green turnovers. In that game the Redskins held Abby Siefker to 14 points and 8 rebounds while holding the rest of the team to only 16 points in the win. Fort Recovery has no players left from that night at Springfield High School.

Ottoville is making it’s 5th state championship appearance in search of their first state championship, Fort Loramie is making their seventh appearance at state and third in four years. For Fort Loramie it is a chance to improve on second place finishes in 1997 and 2011, for Ottoville it is a chance to prove you belong among the OHSAA’s elite programs and finish off a dream four years in the making.

How much can you make of statistics? These teams are virtual mirror images of each other heading into their Friday afternoon tilt: Ottoville is averaging 60.1 points per game while giving up 31.3, Fort Loramie is averaging 65 points per game while giving up 38.5 on the season.

“This team is so pumped to play on Friday,” says Siefker, one of four seniors for Ottoville.

Two players with every accolade you can come up with will be on display in the contest as the Shelby County League C0-Player of the Year Darian Rose(18.5 ppg, 3.6 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 3.0 steals per game) will look to avoid the Big Green pressure, and will be guarded likely by either Nicole Vorst (5-6, Sr., 5.3 ppg) or Taylor Mangas (5-10, Jr., 8.0 ppg., 46 percent 3-pointers). Ottoville will have future Bowling Green State University Falcon Abby Siefker, the D4 All Ohio Player of the Year as well as Putnam County League and All Northwest District Player of the Year(17 points and 12 rebounds per game) anchoring the post against the much smaller Redskins whose tallest player is 5’10” Renae Meyer.

The winner of the game will face either Reedsville Eastern (23-4) or Berlin Highland (25-3) for a the right to hoist the big gold trophy for the first time on Saturday at 5:15 pm from the Schottenstein Center in Columbus.

Catch all of the action tomorrow on www.zsportslive.com channel z1 as myself and Dave Boninsegna will be courtside in Columbus bringing you all of the action with the ball scheduled to go in the air at 3pm.

Titans ground T-Birds

BOWLING GREEN – Remember the Titans.

You can be sure that LCC will as Wednesday night it was the Titans from Ottawa Glandorf who avenged an early season 51-48 home loss to the same Lima Central Catholic Thunderbirds 60-52 in front of a sell-out crowd of 4,700 in Bowling Green at the Stroh Center.

Sell out crowd

OG improved their all-time OHSAA tournament record to 24-4 in games played in the city of Bowling Green with one of the best 2-3 zone defenses they have played all season. “We went with the 2-3 zone because we thought it would alter some of the things they like to do. (But) did I think it would get us a 15-point cushion at the half … I did not,” Titan coach Tyson McGlaughlin said after his defense stifled every LCC shooter not named Tre’on Johnson who finished his brilliant T-Bird career with a 26 points output. Johnson was especially on fire in the fourth quarter as he dazzled the crowd with fantastic dribbling and deep shots while connecting on 6 of 9 shots from beyond the arc.

After jumping on the athletic T-Birds early the Titans poured it on in the first quarter to lead 17-7 as the clock hit zero. The second stanza was just as cold and unforgiving as the Titans opened the quarter on an 11-0 run and led at the break by a 31-16 score. One of the big keys going into the game was that it would need to be the inside play of OG that would have to have a big night against the undersized T-Bird defenders. Michael Rosebrock and Noah Bramlage responded for the Titans as they led paint points by a 10-0 margin as the two squads headed to their locker rooms for a breather and some words of encouragement from their coaches.

With OG able to key on Johnson they could continue to sit back in their 2-3 zone and wait for the shooters to come to them in the second half as they held every other shooter for LCC to 7 points or less in the game. As fouls began to mount in the second half they began to take their toll on the LCC starting lineup as Martyce Kimbrough picked up his fourth foul early in the fourth and was relatively ineffective for the rest of the game as he finished with only 4 points, well under his almost 14 points per game average on the season.

Following a third quarter in which both teams scored 11 points the fans who didn’t head for the exits early were treated to a fantastic back and forth quarter that saw the veteran Thunderbirds take on the personality of their Coach Frank Kill when he played and won a state title with Lincolnview in the 90’s by never giving up and cutting it to as low as 3 before the Titans pulled away for good. TJ Metzger who finished with a team high 23 points iced the game late as he knifed through the lane, hit a spinning reverse layup and the ensuing free throw to give his team a 57-50 lead with just 50 seconds remaining. “TJ is the Northwest District Player of the Year for a reason. He’s a baller,” Kill said.

In addition to the 23 from Metzger, his teammate Caleb Siefker finished with 21 to go along with his 10 rebounds. OG outrebounded LCC 37-30 in the game, but got the big rebounds when it counted too.

With the win the Titans improve to 23-3 on the season while ending LCC’s 2012-2013 campaign at 23-3.

Titans Advance

Saturday night Ottawa Glandorf will look to sell out the Stroh Center once again as they head north to BG to take on the 26-1 Bloom Carroll Bulldogs at 7:30pm for a chance to play next weekend in Columbus for a State Championship. Bloom Carroll defeated Huron 62-54 to win their first Regional Semi-Finals game since 2005. The Bulldogs will be led by Joey Schmitz who scored 26 in the win.

Ottoville defeats Arcadia

Elida – Is the 5th time the charm?

Ottoville will head to the OHSAA State Semi-Finals on Friday afternoon following a thrilling 52-37 win over the Arcadia Red Devils Saturday night at the Elida Fieldhouse in front of a sell out crowd.

Sell out crowd

For Big Green coach Dave Klemen this was also a huge night. Not only will he take his 27-0 squad to Columbus to face Fort Loramie after they dispatched Tri-Village 69-43, but he also picked up his 400th career win “I felt like I was a pitcher throwing a no hitter towards the end as nobody would talk to me” he quipped during his postgame interview.

After Arcadia took an early 3-0 lead behind Senior guard and 1st team all Northwest District selection Miranda Palmer it was all Ottoville as they promptly responded with an 8-0 run over the next three minutes to build an 18-10 first quarter lead. The challenge for most teams who face  Ottoville is the same, which players do you key on and try to stop? Arcadia attempted to answer that question with Abby Siefker (9 points 8 rebounds) and Rachel Beining (11 points 3 rebounds). While the Redskins were successful at times flustering the aforementioned duo in goading them into 7 total fouls in the game and relegating them to the bench for long stretches of time they were not near as successful in stopping Rachel Turnwald. Turnwald, a Senior guard was the Big Green leading scorer on the night with 16 including big shots from the free throw line where she went 9 of 10 in the fourth quarter alone.

Palmer was able to hit some big shots in the game keep her team close as she finished with 19 on 6-16 shooting, but couldn’t get enough help from her teammates as the man to man defensive pressure from Nicole Vorst and Taylor Mangas proved to be too much for the Redskins to handle.

All of Putnam County will surely be in attendance as the #1 seeded Big Green will play 25-3 Fort Loramie on Friday afternoon at 3pm just as they have been throughout this entire historic post season run. Last season’s pursuit of a state title ended with a loss in the same building as Saturday night’s win at the hands of eventual state champion Arlington, something that Ottoville remembered and used as motivation for this season, “I think everybody would have been crushed (if we didn’t make it to state). It would have been the fourth year of getting so close. It feels great” said Siefker after the game.

After they got done cutting the nets down I was lucky enough to get to talk to Nicole Vorst, Taylor Mangas and Coach Klemen, take a listen to that interview here: http://chirb.it/Own9ah

Coach Klemen cutting down the nets and flashing a rare smile on the court

If you can’t make it to Columbus on Friday afternoon to the Schott grab your cellphone and download the TuneIn ap or head over to www.zsportslive.com z1 to hear the broadcast with myself and Dave Boninsegna to hear Ottoville and Fort Loramie do battle for a chance to play for a state championship on Saturday night.
