Matchup

One of the most highly anticipated matchups of the second round comes between the Liberty Center Tigers and the Archbold Blue Streaks, the Tigers projected to win by a score of 32-25. It's do or die for each team as always in the postseason. Regardless of the outcome, each team can take comfort in the fact that they had a successful enough season to get here, but only one team will be satisfied with the result as the other's season will end on a loss. The Blue Streaks, one of the top teams in Division 6, come into the game ranked 14th. The Tigers come in ranked 4th. This is a chance for the Blue Streaks to avenge a loss from earlier on in the regular season, when the Tigers beat them 39-36. They also played in 2018, a matchup in which the defeated the Blue Streaks by a score of 35-20.


Archbold comes into the game on a 5-game winning streak. After last week's 27-21 win against the Coldwater Cavaliers, they are 10-1 and look to continue the positive momentum. Scoring an average of 37.1 points per game on offense, the Blue Streaks rank 17th in Division 6. They've been even more explosive in recent weeks, scoring an average of 38 over their last 5 games. Nevertheless, the defense could actually be the true strength of the team, which they've shown in their most recent contests. Over the last 3 games, they've allowed only 9.33 points per game. However, success on defense isn't just a recent trend - on the season, their defense ranks 21st in their division, allowing 16.5 points per game.


For Liberty Center, Saturday is a chance to expand on a 3-game winning streak after their 43-12 win against the Allen East Mustangs brought their record to 10-1. The Tigers offense is one of the most high-powered in their division, particularly in recent weeks. For the year, they rank 15th in Division 6 with 38.2 points per game. Over the last 2 weeks, they've scored an average of 38.2. Their defense ranks 40th in their division giving up an average of 21.3 points per game, but they've been improving with each game - over the last 3 weeks, they've allowed an average of 15.33 points.
