Matchup

The Mechanicsburg Indians enter the second week of the playoffs against the Grandview Heights Bobcats in a game they're projected to win by a score of 30-16. The playoffs are the best time of the year but also come with a great deal of drama as many powerhouses will even see their seasons cut short. Each week, it's do or die and, after this week is complete, half of the current playoff teams will be eliminated. The Indians, one of the top teams in Division 6, come into the game ranked 9th. The Bobcats come in ranked 32nd. A new matchup on the schedule for each team, Saturday's game is a chance for each to test its skills and strategies against an unfamiliar opponent. Strategically, this might lead to complications that could throw off the gameplan of either team.


After their 32-7 win against the Adena Warriors last week, Mechanicsburg is 9-2 and looks to finish the season strong. In recent weeks, the Indians haven't been quite as successful producing points but they remain the 12th-ranked offense in Division 6, scoring an average of 40 points per game. While recent games have affected averages negatively, their defense is one of the best as well. They rank 3rd in their division, giving up an average of 9.2 points per game.


After a 35-28 win against the Paint Valley Bearcats brought their record to 7-4, Grandview Heights will be looking to carry that momentum over and earn another victory. The Bobcats offense hasn't been particularly great this season in terms of point production, a trend which continues into recent weeks. Over their last 7 games, they've scored an average of 15.71 points - this season they've averaged 21.2, which ranks 73rd in Division 6. On the opposite side of the ball, they rank 46th in the division, allowing 23.2 points per game.
