STREETSBORO OH- The Canfield Cardinals traveled to take on the Streetsboro Rockets in a battle for the regional semifinal. The Cardinals battled all night long, and continued their dominant 2020 season.

Broc Lowry got the ball rolling for the Cardinals as he danced into the end zone from five yards out in the second quarter, to give Canfield the first lead of the night. With time running down in the first half, Lowry connected with Ethan Fletcher for a touchdown pass right near the pylon. This touchdown would give the Cardinals a 14 point lead with just 6 seconds left in the first half.

Streetsboro couldn’t get any points on the board in the first half, after a terrific defensive effort from the Cardinals. Streetsboro was not used to getting shut down offensively, coming in averaging over 53 points a game.

In the second half, the Cardinals continued to push forward. An 80 yard drive was capped off by another Lowry touchdown run, and the Cardinals were up 21 to 0 to start the 3rd quarter. Canfield’s place kicker Jonathan Schmidt would later knock in a 31 yard field goal to make it 24-0. Streetsboro would score late in the 4th, but were unable to convert the 2 point conversion.

Canfield would come away with the victory by a final score of 24-6. Canfield remains unbeaten at 9-0, and will take on Chardon next Friday in the Regional Final.

CANFIELD, OH- LeBron James said once that “In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given, everything is earned.”  That statement rings true in Canfield as the Cards were able to get a big home victory over Howland in Week 1.  Leading the way was their signal-caller and senior, Ethan Fletcher.  Fletcher has adopted the split QB reps with open arms, as the feeling is that having two elite quarterbacks makes the duty to prepare doubly as difficult.

Although he splits reps in the backfield, the two-way starter doesn’t limit his leadership.  Fletcher has taken all the lessons he’s learned in leading from his bloodlines and experiences both on and off the field.  Given that this season was not guaranteed to happen, Ethan has a mindset that he’s going to put his best foot forward each and every play he has.

CANFIELD OH- The Canfield Cardinals caged the Howland Tigers with a victory in Week 1. After a slow start in the first quarter, Logan Torok got the ball rolling for the Cardinals with a 58 yard touchdown reception to take a 7-0 lead. Later in the second half, senior quarterback Ethan Fletcher added another big play with a 59 yard touchdown run to increase the Canfield lead.

The Howland Tigers offense struggled in week one, not putting up any points in the contest. Canfield Linebacker Chris Sammarone was all over the field, leading the Cardinals in tackles.

Canfield would win by a final score of 23-0, and will host Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin next week. Howland will host Chaney in week 2.
