CANFIELD, OH- The Canfield Cardinals hosted the New Philadelphia Quakers in round one of the Ohio high school playoffs. The Quakers controlled the time of possession throughout the ballgame to keep it close, but a jolt by the Cardinals offense in the fourth quarter pushed the Cardinals into the second round.

Canfield started off strong on the first possession of the ballgame with a touchdown run from half back Danny Inglis to make it 7-0. The Quakers would respond in the second quarter with a long sustained drive that resulted in a Konnor Tetzloff touchdown reception to tie the ballgame at 7. The Quakers would recover an onside kick in the second quarter to take the ball back and kick a 48 yard field goal from senior kicker Nathaniel Demuth to take a 10-7 lead. The Cardinals would end the first half with a touchdown after a quarterback keeper from Broc Lowry to take a 14-10 lead at the end of the first half.

Neither team was able to get on the board in the third quarter, but the Cardinals clicked offensively in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Inglis had his second rushing touchdown of the night to take a 21-10 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Later on in the fourth, Lowry found sophomore tight end Angelo DeLucia to seal the game at 27-10. The Cardinals will host the Aurora Greenmen next Friday at Bob Dove Field.


MASSILLON OH- Boardman didn’t even get a half of an inning in on Monday before rain delayed the game. They quickly had momentum though as they scored a run before the sky opened up. That meant they came in to Tuesday night already having a 1-0 lead and momentum. They needed every bit as they outlasted New Philadelphia 5-3 in 8 innings.

Maddie Lester was 1-3 on the day with a team high 2 RBI. She hit her 6th home run of the season. Dana Haus was the only Spartan with multiple hits going 2-4 with a walk and 2 runs scored.  Jenna Olexa went 1-2, walked twice, and gathered a RBI.  Maddie Wymer mirrored those numbers going 1-2 with a pair of walks.

Tori Strines pitched a gem against a strong Quakers lineup.  She went 8 innings giving up just 1 earned run on 6 hits. She struck out 6 and walked 2.

Boardman advances to the Division 1 Massillon district championship on Wednesday as they’ll play Walsh Jesuit. First pitch from Massillon is slated for 5:00.


NEW PHILADELPHIA OH- Louisville had a very tough test in front of them on Saturday as they traveled to New Philadelphia to take on the 9-1 Quakers in their gym. It was by no means east, but the Leopards earned a big win 53-46.

The Leopards were paced by Kelsey Adelman who completed a 19 point performance. Kendall Loy was also in double figures for the Leopards warning 12 points. Brooke Haren supplied7 for the Leopards offense.

The Leopards improve your 8-3 on the season with the big win. They will host Marlington next on Wednesday.


Two historic programs stumbling into the postseason, Hubbard and New Philadelphia came into cold wet night with one goal in mind, survive and advance.

The weather played a factor throughout the beginning of the ballgame, as sloppy offensive play and penalties had things tied at the conclusion of the first.

After a Quaker fumble allowed Hubbard to take the ball over in New Philly territory, the Eagles would pick up one first down to get senior kicker, Kyle Walker, into field goal range before blasting through a twenty-nine-yard field goal to break our seal and give Hubbard the lead.
New Philadelphia’s ensuing possession saw the Quakers pick up a first down before a couple of penalties put them well behind the sticks and forced them to punt the ball away.

Hubbard started their drive at the Quaker thirty-seven-yard-line and just six plays later, TC Caffey would punch in his first score of the night on a fourth and goal from the one.

The Quakers, however, had no intentions on going away easily into the night. The first play of the ensuing New Philly drive hit for sixty-four yards and set the Quakers up for their first score of the night, a five yard touchdown pass from Kurtis to Konnor Tetzloff, sending out score to where the half would end, 10-7.

Starting the second half with the ball, New Philadelphia’s opening drive would see the Quakers turn the ball over for the second time of the night, this time deep in Eagle territory on the Hubbard four.

In just six plays Hubbard went ninety-six yards for the score, capped by a vintage TC Caffey fifty-nine-yard touchdown run, featuring four broken tackles, and Caffey’s jets. TC would go on to score twice more in the ballgame, once from twelve yards out, and the other from eight.
TC’s effort in the Eagles 39-20 victory over New Philadelphia put himself in the state record books twice, with over 2400 yards rushing and 36 rushing TDs, and also has surpassed Hubbard legend, LJ Scott, for most rushing TDs in a season.

TC Caffey: 35 carries, 272 rushing yards, 4 TDs
Landan Bates: 6-9, 90 passing yards, 11 carries, 78 rushing yards
Ben Wilcox: 5 carries, 56 rushing yards
O’Rhen Martin: 5 catches, 119 receiving yards, 2 TDs

Hubbard: Bouncing back in a big way after their embarrassing loss to Canfield South Range, the Eagles will hit the road for the second round, and again travel to Canfield, this time to take on the big dog Canfield Cardinals (10-1). Hubbard leads the all-time series 15-7-1 and have won the only three matchups this century.

New Philadelphia: The Quakers end their season with a final record of 6-5, and on a two-game losing streak. Losing six starters on offense and three on the defensive side, New Philly will return a plethora of then senior talent, and will have their names in the postseason race once again.
