Can OG take down Mansfield Christian?

Maybe OG can handle MC, but neither will hang with Summit, who is still D3.

O-G will toe the line between D2 and D3. Especially with this competitive balance.

Can they handle MC? I was impressed (during summer league) with the pieces they have. Though they have already lost their GK (torn labrum) for the year. He might be available in the field midway. My concern with O-G is they need a commitment to playing solid defense. Their offense should be capable of scoring.

O-G always seemed to be on the line between 2 and 3, if I'm not mistaken.

Kind of miss going to the O-G super scrimmage, just not the bus ride. :)

DIII is most interesting to me. OG must go all the way up to Rossford to a very tough district. Bluffton out of Tiffin, back to the Kalida district. Oak Harbor, who was very good last season in DII, moves to Tiffin district to challenge Mansfield Christian.

Some quick thoughts

Edison should be competitive in D2. They're returning a lot.
Not sure why Rossford keeps getting to host Sectionals. Their field is way too narrow.
Ottawa-Glandorf moving to the already tough Rossford group (Achbold, Ottawa Hills, Lake) is going to make for some good matches.
Oak Harbor lost 14 seniors and only has 3 varsity players returning.
Sandusky moves to Lake District????
