Region 2

All games are Friday at 7 p.m.

1 Marysville (11-0) vs. 4 Toledo Whitmer (10-2) at Bellefontaine AcuSport Stadium

Marysville once again comes into this game off a blowout last week.

The Monarchs have seen little resistance this year, shown in their average score-differential of 28 points, 

Led by Ohio State-commit Gabe Powers, who won District Defensive Player of the Year, there is no sign that Marysville is slowing coming into the regional semifinals.

Toledo Whitmer comes into Friday on a 4-game winning streak in which each of those four games it has scored over 40 points.

Yet, there is little hope the Panthers will be able to match a score like that against the brick wall of a defense for the Monarchs.

Region 3

Game of the Week: 1 Upper Arlington (12-0) vs. 4 New Albany (12-0) at Powell Olentangy Liberty Stadium

Both Upper Arlington and New Albany have been near perfect thus far, yet one of them will finally need to lose on Friday night.

On the Golden Bears' side, a No. 1 seed was built from an offense that has scored over 30 points in every game this season. That offense is led by running back Carson Gresock and his incredible 32 rushing touchdowns this season.

The Eagles have their own lead running back in Jadyn Garnes who has 28 touchdowns of his own and averages 153 rushing yards per game.

With respect to a 20-19 win against Pickerington North, New Albany has one every game this season by more than two possessions.

2 Pickerington Central (11-1) vs. 6 Pickerington North (9-3) at Newark Paul “Hoss” Starr Stadium at White Field

An in-city rematch the entire state of Ohio will have its eyes on.

A lone "L" sits upon Pickerington Central's schedule this year, but what seeps into the Tigers' minds the most is that it came to their in-city rival Pickerington North. That Week 2 game ended in the Panthers winning 13-10 in overtime.

The Tigers have had nothing but success since that game, winning every game with most coming by over two possession.

Pickerington North ended up falling twice to end the season but has seen a resurgence most recently in defeating No. 3 Gahanna Lincoln on the road last week.

Now, Pickerington Central meets the Panthers at a neutral site that is sure to have fans of both sides come out in droves.

The only question is: who will rule Pickerington this postseason?
