This one is CLOSER than the experts think but the Burg gets it done and moves on to round 2.

Good luck Pirates!
Yes Coop we are.
07- Burg
08- Portsmouth West
09- Minford
10- Burg
11-Valley
15-Burg but it was atleast in Logan.

Very excited to see the new Burg facilities.
Seems these two teams match up often. Baseball 06, 13, 15.

1) The RB's run straight up. THEY make themselves to be huge targets.
2) RB's are not THAT fast.
3) QB has a good arm and is really quick.
4) Pistol style offense with 2 backs. Always a man in motion to the side they run. Even the counter trey.
5) Defense runs either a 4-2 or 3-3. Always bring 4 in the 3-3.
6) Zone, zone and more zone. CB's lock their guy down but everyone else plays zone.
7) The middle is open @ about 10-15 yd routes.
8) Coverage is always watching QB. Receivers can get open.
9) Kicker is not great for distance. Should start with decent field position all night. Kicks are landing around the 20.
10) Punter is average at best. His kicks are short but he gets the roll.
That is really in depth. Have you seen a game on them? They've got highlights on YouTube but haven't seen anything like a complete game.
Yea. I've seen film. I watchef the stuff on YouTube as well. It's just highlights. In game film they look a lot different. THEY struggle at times. I really think Burg wins this one by 3 scores.
Depending on what games you saw on the Wood, you may have seen them without their best player #30. Injured his ankle in week #5 missed games 6,7, played 1st quarter in week 8 before reinjuring ankle. Game 6 being Garaway. He played some defensively against Garaway but for the most part on 1 leg. He was replaced by a freshmen at the Tailback position. His absence ultimately did not decide any games he missed, but playing without your best player hurts most teams.
The Wood is pretty good defensively, especially against the run. Tough group of kids that play hard.
Any time you play the #1 ranked team in the state I think you are considered the underdog...not sure why posters on here feel the need to predict a win in this one, Burg should win...should win the region. With that said the Wood will not be driving 3.5 hrs to be a ceremonial fill in, they will not be intimidated, Burg will have to earn their way to week 12.

I would say Burg and Garaway got the toughest draws of the top 4 seeds. Much rather see Ironton or Zane Trace in 1st round. Ridgewood will be a test no doubt come Saturday night.

Ridgewood over burg!!! Ridgewood has too much talent and Burg has been looking weak. Ridgewood 42, Burg 21

There is a reason the Pirates are #1 in this region and Rudgewood is #8. It's the best team vs the worst team. I think Wheelersburg has the clock running after first possession of 2nd half. On to week 12!!!

^ Oh my, here we go. So, is it enough of the football talk and back to the nonsense? I knew it wouldn't last long. :lol:


Zane Trace (IS the worse team in region 19 playoffs,)

Both Nelsonville, and Ironton are living on borrowed time.

Liberty Union and Ridgewood are the dark horses

Coshocton??

Wheelersburg and Garaway are the favorites, but I predict one of them gets upset by a darkhorse. My gut says Liberty Union over Garaway.

Burg is without a doubt best team in the region. I honestly believe that garaway and coshocton are 2/3, the teams pretty close. I would say Ridgewood and York are a close 4/5. The burg should win this one. But i do think it will only be a 1 or 2 touchdown game. Ridgewood usually comes to play and their kids will battle. The burg IMO is not as good as last year. But they are still an extremely solid football team, playing on their own turf, with a chance to get to go on a run. This game will not be a running clock.

Burg needs to go find that team which wore Pirate football uniforms the first 4 weeks of the season. They are out there. I hope they show up or the Generals will have them walking the plank. Ridgewood has quietly been taking care of business like Garaway and Coshocton. Burg is good as long as they don't make the mental errors. 10-0 is hard to do let alone twice in a row. What a team! Time for the second season to start and get on a roll. GO BURG!!!!!

The most points Burgs defense has given up is 14 the 19 points that NCH put up on Burg 6 of those points came off a pick 6 by NCH defense I think Ridgewood has a nice defense but dont think their offense can score enough th win it But I do hope that Burg has all those penalties and silly mistakes behind them its week 11 its win or go home time GO BURG!!

Defense was much better last year. Offensive line was much better. Skill players are about even. Last year's team was 2 to 3 touchdowns better.

I'm not comparing defenses or offenses. I'm comparing teams. Way more depth. I can't think of one player that stays on the field for every snap. Overall they are better.

Looking forward to coming back home to Scioto County this weekend to see Ridgewood play at Wheelersburg. I grew up in South Webster. I have continued to follow Burg and teams in the SOC since moving to central Ohio in the 96 and West Lafayette in 04. Wood fans have a lot of respect for the Pirates program and the level play in southern Ohio. Fan support for the Pirates is also top notch. Ridgewood has come along way since making their first playoff appearance in 03. This season marks the Generals 12th in 14 years. Looking forward to a great game and seeing family and old high school classmates at the game.

Yes, you are correct. My wife is a Ridgewood grad and works in the district. Great place to raise a family. Reminds me a lot of Scioto County. My four brothers still live in South Webster. Will be a nice homecoming.

I have only seen the Burg 3 times (2 in person) and I also believe last year they were better. I think the only thing this team has on last's is a little more explosion on offense.

I would like to have seen this Burg team play next's years schedule. I think we would have a little better impression of where they are. I do think they are a very good team, but I don't see them winning the Region. JMO.

He has no idea. He's just basing it on that burg isn't as good as last year in his opinion.

I think whoever wins the Garaway/Coshocton game takes the region. I posted it on the Region prediction thread. It wouldn't shock me one bit if the Burg does it again. All I am saying is I have watched them 3 times and I don't feel like they are as good. They are a very good football team. It isn't that in the slightest. I just feel they were better last year (and for that matter I think the best of the last 3 years was 2014, IMO). Like I said, it is just my opinion.

    Do not disagree with the 2014 remark, but overall I feel this team is better than last.
