BIGGEST SURPRISE IN WEEK 2
D-VI Has More Private Schools Left Than Any Division: Private schools went 3-3 in D-VI regional semifinals last week, but those three wins still means the state’s smallest division has more private schools left than other. Delphos St. John’s, Newark Catholic and Youngstown Christian all remain alive.
BIGGEST SURPRISE TEAM LEFT
Youngstown Christian: A year after making its first playoff appearance, Youngstown Christian has now advanced to its first regional final. The Eagles beat only one team with a winning record in the regular season but have doubled that with wins over two (Warren JFK and Malvern) in the playoffs.
BEST REGIONAL FINAL GAME
McComb (12-0) vs. Delphos St. John’s (8-4): McComb advanced to its second regional final in three years with a 42-0 win over Tiffin Calvert in Region 22. The Panthers opponent? Delphos St. John’s – the same team that knocked them out in Week 13 two years ago (56-20). McComb held Calvert to 110 total yards and racked up 505 of its own. Senior RB Jerry Brown led the way with 243 yards and a TD on 22 carries. Delphos St. John’s trailed Fremont St. Joseph 21-7 before scoring 47 unanswered points en route to a 54-21 win. Junior RB Tyler Jettinghoff ran for 255 yards and two TDs on 21 carries for DSJ, which had 541 yards of offense (461 on the ground). Few conferences can compete with MAC, but the Blanchard Valley Conference is one that can hold its own.
