‘Burg-WLS Round 2 is Friday at Wapak

Triad gets defending state champ at Piqua


Round 2 of Mechanisburg vs. West Liberty-Salem will play out at Wapakoneta and Triad will play two-time defending state champion Marion Local at Piqua in this week’s high school football playoffs. Neutral sites and state semifinal matchups for Divisions II-VII were announced on Sunday by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

Mechanicsburg (10-2) defeated WL-Salem (10-2) in their Ohio Heritage Conference Week 7 game of the regular season, 32-22.

They’ll meet again in Friday’s 7:30 p.m. D-VI, Region 22 final at Wapak’s Harmon Field.

The winner will be paired against the Haviland Wayne Trace (11-1) vs. Ada (9-3) Region 20 winner in next week’s state semifinals at another neutral site to be determined.

Five playoff games this week will feature perfect 12-0 teams, and two games are in D-VII. Triad (12-0), also of the OHC, will play Local (12-0) of the Midwest Athletic Conference at 7 p.m. Saturday at Piqua’s Alexander Stadium in a Region 26 final.

The Triad/Local winner will play the Delphos St. John’s (8-4) vs. Arlington (9-3) Region 24 winner in next week’s state semifinals. Delphos also is a MAC member.

Another pair of unbeaten teams is in a Region 25 final, Glouster Trimble (12-0) vs. Shadyside (12-0).

The playoffs conclude with the state finals Dec. 5-7 at Canton and Massillon.
