High School Football Week 6 Preview: Playoff Picture To Become Clearer Soon

Time is the enemy as teams look for playoff push

Brecksville-Broadview Heights Bees (4-1) at Olmsted Falls Bulldogs (2-3)

The Bulldogs when into last week's game versus the Midpark Meteors at a record of 1-3, but they surely didn't perform like it with a 40-6 win against the Brown and Orange. They looked like more of a defense with an appetite for quarterbacks and tailbacks. They force opposing offenses out of rhythm as good as anyone in their division, but they need to get going on offense; having been outscored 89-84 by opponents on the season. The Bees look to coach Jamie Hitmar to keep their strong season alive.

Solon Comets Comets (5-0) at Mayfield Wildcats (4-1)

These two powerhouses square off at Mayfield Municipal Stadium with only one loss combined between the two teams. Solon, looking to improve their unbeaten streak to 6-0, have outscored their opponents by 30 points in two road games. They are coming off of a convincing 34-6 victory over the Hudson Explorers. The Wildcats shut down a read hot Brush Arcs team, and has not allowed any points at all in the past eight quarters. Their other recent shutout came against Elyria.

Elyria Catholic Panthers (5-0) at Trinity Trojans (2-3)

The Trojans, lead by head coach Ed Schaefer, will have their hands full in trying to cool off the Panthers who are looking to push their winning streak to seven games (dating back to last year). Trinity got their second win on the year versus John F. Kennedy by a slender margin 12-10. Panther quarterback Danny Reaser will look to continue the E.C. success by limiting turnovers and attacking Trinity with the Panther's short bullet passing game.

Westlake Demons (4-1) at North Olmsted Eagles (2-3)

The Demons don't score many points, they only have 62 in five games, but they play solid defense. Opposing clubs struggle to run on them, but you can't succeed in the passing game either. The Westlake coaching staff stresses fundamentals in tackling and covering, and it has paid off to the fullest. This Demons team has surprised many, but the Eagles stand in their way, looking to turn things around after dropping their past two games to Amherst and Avon Lake.

Strongsville Mustangs (3-2) at Medina Bees (5-0)

This one should be pretty entertaining. The Mustangs are probably the best 3-2 team in the conference, and Medina has had great success, baffling opponents 163-66. Head coach Greg Read has his Bees prepared for a Mustangs team coming in with a ton of momentum, storming out of the stable with a three game win streak. Strongsville team captain Ray Hamilton looks to lead the offense that has flipped a switch since beginning its torrent.
