Interesting match up. Last year Mohawk won 34- 0. Bucyrus seems to be a lot better this year. Mohawk seems to have regressed. Both teams are coming off of a win in week 6. Bucyrus over BC 53 - 6. Mohawk over CC 32 - 25.

If thr Redmen can cut down on the mistakes, especially the untimely penalties, they may have a chance. However, they need to put together four good quarters, and have the confidence that they can win. The victory over BC was good, but the win over Carey was big.
Mohawk, however, will need to take the Redmen seriously. If they do, they would still be the favorite. If they don’t, then look for the upset.
I'm pulling for Bucyrus. I'd be nice to see them as "relevant" again. As I see it, if Bucyrus plays their best and Mohawk plays beneath what they're capable of, then an upset is very possible. It's up the Redmen to make a game of it.

If Bucyrus can limit the costly penalties that have reared their head several times this season they will win. They showed much improved discipline in this area on Friday night against Buckeye Central. My fear is they come in thinking they have the game won before it starts. They need to come in hungry and play aggressive like they have at times this year. If they do that they will prevail in a close game.
Bucyrus scored a go ahead touchdown on a 4th and 15 play that went for 50 plus yards with approximately a minute left in the game. Mohawk completed about a 50 yard pass play between 2 defenders to get them inside the 5 yard line with about 30 seconds left on the clock. It was a heartbreaking defeat for the Redmen.
Hats off to Mohawk. They could have folded when they went down. As for the Redmen, my heart goes out to them. I experienced a similiar loss to an undefeated Galion team back in 1978. You never get over those types of meltdowns. The only thing you can do is to regroup. Hopefully, they rebound against their rivals in the next few weeks.
