Post by Westsider1993 » Fri Nov 07, 2008 6:15 pm

I am voting for the 02' State semi-final. West against Youngstown Ursiline. Came down to the last play of the game. Big names on that Ursiline squad. Hit after hit. Big play after big play. And wow was it cold!!!!

That was a great game. Keeping with '02, the Regional final against Portsmouth was a great game. Also the '01 game against W'Burg was great. 7-0 Final score, hard hitting all game long.

#8 seed Jackson @ #1 seed 10-0 Cincy Withrow 2004


Withrow has Ball State star Dante Love as their QB and Jackson had Jared humphreys and co....incredible game with Jackson jumping out.....Withrow firing back and Jackson retaking the lead and Withrow scoring late....and Jackson scoring very late and the final play of the game was Dante Love scrambling down the field for the entire final 22 seconds of the game with Jackson finally pushing him OB....WHEW!

Been so many, very hard to pick just 1, but recently:
-Ironton/Bellaire (regional final at Peden)... Nate Davis and the Big Red survive 3OT's, you could tell this kid was "special"
-Hilliard Davidson/Mentor (D1 Championship 2 years ago at Fawcett)... Davidson wins in 2OT's, forget the RB's name, but he had @ 40 carries, ALL on the same 2 plays to the right and left
-St X./Colerain(regional final @ PBS)... 3/4(?) yrs. ago maybe the BEST defensive HS football game I ever watched, tied at 3 after regulation, talent galore on both sides of the ball, but X wins it in OT 9-6 on a "trick" play/pass to then Soph. Darius Ashley, they march on to win their 1st state title
-Coldwater/Mooney (last year's D4 title game @ Massillon)... maybe the BEST "David beating Goliath" game I ever watched. Mooney, and their 8 or so D1 recruits, unable to overcome the sheer will, grit, and determination of a Coldwater team that refused to quit. The "Hoosiers" movie script of High School football games in Ohio!!!

I have to say one of the most exciting games myself would have to be Ironton vs. Germantown Valley View....

Ironton's come from behind Win 37-29 for the 1999 Regional Championship game played at Cincinnati Princeton Field....

Late 90's state final game between Mogadore and St Henry. That was a classic.

From 'Old School':

Heavy underdog Ironton tripped up Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary for the old 'AA'
state title at the Akron Rubber Bowl.

A classic drive cued by a fumble recovery by Ironton led to the tying touchdown
and go-ahead PAT with :34 seconds to go.

John Elway and the Denver Broncos had their 'Drive'. Brent Wilcoxon and the
Ironton Tigers had theirs in 1979.

1989-Wheelersburg state championship win over Warren Kennedy. Burg goes up against a team that is supposed to bigger, faster and stronger and wins 14-7.

1989-Burg vs. Versailles-State-semi-final. Burg finally breaks through and gets a win against Versailles 16-7. Burg is down 7-6 and Pete Ruby kicks about a 30 some yard knuckleball FG that gives the Burg the lead 9-6. Burg tacks on a late score to seal the victory.

I was on that Ironton team. That was probably the best game that I was apart of in my years at IHS. The game, also in 99, against Cincinnati Wyoming. #1 vs #8. We went up to their "house" after losing 2 straight games and took it to them to start our miraculous run through the playoffs that season.
Another good game was the 2001 Ironton vs Portsmouth game (regular season). We held them with a goal line stand to win 16-15.

Earp you may remember this one, 1980 Chesy over Fairland 19-18. Dragons led 18-0 at the half. Peake shut out Hutchison and the Dragons second half and win on late TD and extra point.

ok before i say anything about the greatest game
just like everyone over there to know we had a perfect regular season once again going 6-0
and we won our first playoff game 30-27 in overtime so were now 7-0 playing for the championship this friday just thought i'd let everyone know that from ironton

now for most exciting game i have 2
1) STM vs Lakeshore in canada at Rogers Center in TORONTO, went into 3 Overtimes trading both FG and TD until our team intercepted them in the endzone and then scored in the 3rd OT to get the victory first ever OFSAA title for hamilton and our school.
2) On friday the 7th of October, shades of the CAL vs STANFORD game were showing at Ivor Wynn stadium in hamilton, down 15-10 with 2 seconds left on the 50 yard line the St. John de Brebeuf Braves threw a pass and then 6 LATERALS later they ran it into the endzone, reminded me of the CAL/STANFORD game without the band, opne of the craziest plays I have ever seen, we play the team that made that play this friday sohuld be great game, oging for our 3rd straight Catholic Championship title

Early '90s. St. Henry and Newark Catholic in Springfield in Regional Final (I believe.) St. Henry wins 21-19 on a cold, snowy night.

This years' Piketon-Waverly game, because neither team quit (forget about the 'no defense' comments.)

That 1989 season had some great games and those are definitely at the top of my list, but the one that stands out in my mind from 1989 was the Burg/West game. West jumps out to 20-7 halftime lead and was just dominating the Pirates in the first half. I remember Todd Ruby walking by and stopping to chat and saying, "A state championship caliber team finds a way to come back and win this game. We'll see if this team has that in them." The Burg, on the shoulders of senior QB Matt Millers play faking and running outscore West 14-0 in the second half to win 21-20 and go on to a 14-0 season and a state title.

Another great game I remember was when Ironton played Rock Hill in the playoffs a few years back at Ironton and it was just a dogfight. Both teams seemed to almost score at will with Ironton finally comnig out on top. Rock Hill definitely wasn't afraid of the Tigers that night and played right with them. I think that may have been an #8 vs #1 game.

2003 and 2004 Chesapeake vs Rock Hill for the OVC title, both games went back and forth and both went into double OT I think. Chesapeake won both games, but Rock Hill should have won in 2004 but missed a long field goal at the end. Mcfann ( I think was the kicker) he had the distance but just missed it wide

I think the Chesapeake opener this year against Oak Hill, it wasnt the best ever but it was a dandy of an opener.. Chesapeake trailing by two scores at half came back to win 30-29 thanks to a broken up two point coversion pass by Chesapeake's Kyle Webb that was intended for Oak Hill's J.D. Hale with 5 seconds left on the clock..

this year meigs vs. nelsonville.
first meigs by plenty.
2nd nelsonville in a massive comback.
lastly meigs in a last minute drive to score.
the game was not over until the next to last play and even that had everyone in the whole stadium standing. was he in, was he out?
depends on where you live i guess :122246
heck of a game!
it is only justice that both teams made the play-offs.
