Matchup

The second round matchup between the Massillon Tigers and the Perry Panthers should be one of the more exciting matchups of the week. The Tigers come into the week projected to win by a score of 37-24. 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 Panthers, one of the top teams in Division 2, come into the game ranked 11th. The Tigers come in ranked 2nd. 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. Stylistically and schematically, past matchups are often used as a guiding tool. This week, however, each team will likely take time to adjust to an unfamiliar opponent, which should make for some added excitement.


Perry comes into the game on a 2-game winning streak. After last week's 37-27 win against the Hudson Explorers, they are 9-2 and look to continue the positive momentum. The Panthers offense has been one of the best in the division, especially in recent weeks. For the year, they rank 21st in Division 2 with 33.8 points per game. Over the last 2 weeks, they've scored an average of 33.8. Their defense allows an average of 21.7 points per game, which ranks 34th in their division.


Massillon will look to continue the momentum of their 11-game winning streak, the most recent addition to which was a 55-0 win against the Warren G Harding Raiders last week, bringing their record to 11-0. On offense, the Tigers have been one of the best in the state this season, ranking 10th with 45.5 points per game. Recent weeks haven't been quite as explosive as they've averaged 34.33 points per game but they remain one of the most explosive offenses statewide. On defense, they've been just as strong. Allowing just 10.2 points per game over the course of the season, their defense ranks 6th in their division. Over the last 3 weeks, they've been even more proficient, giving up just 4.67 points per game.
