This is generally what happens when a really good DI public school takes on a DIII public school, regardless of how good the DIII school is. The only time the DIII school ever has a chance, is when the DIII school is a great team and the DI school just happens to have an awful team. It's the size of the school, the 2 to 3 to 4 to 5 times as many boys to choose from. There are more bigger, faster , better players.
I can remember playing for Poland when Howland was still in the Mahoning Valley conference and Howland was a much bigger school, and besides that they were one of the better high school football teams in the Youngstown/Warren area in the early to mid 70's. I can remember being scared ############less playing on the field with those monsters, we held our own, but Howland was big and fast and strong at every position, twice over. Dave Moore, Jack Lazor, etc. We were all lucky to not come off the field in those games with nothing broken.
Look at Winton Woods last week. They were the best DII school in Ohio last year, and the best this year, last week they played a DI power and got there butts handed to them.
That's just how it is. Hopefully Poland didn't get anyone killed or maimed or hurt real bad and can recover and have a decent rest of the season.
