Does anyone realize looking at the Ashland scores over the last 3 years Ironton has been outscored 118 to 3! The Wheelersburg scores I can't even add up in my head.

I am going to say RH by 2 points.

RH will come in with some extra fire for this matchup, wanting to give their head coach the upset victory. RH keeps in close until late in the game but I believe it will still be a “closer-than-the-experts-think” score...32-15.

How banged up is RockHill still? If they are close to healthy it will be close. If they are not it may get ugly.

I gotta say tigers as well. got feelings fer both squads. graduated from ironton, lived there till I was 19. then moved to kitts hill in the rock hill district and lived there 32 years. and got to coach youth sports there. I dearly love both programs. and I want ironton to keep winning. and I'm a big fan of hammer lutz as well. but my heart still says fighting tigers win this one.

I have good friends on both coaching staffs. This will be a fun one to watch. Personally I think it will be very close. The winner will be the team who takes care of the football. I feel turnovers will decide this game. My wife graduated from Rock Hill and I have been watching Ironton since Jethro was a pup. It will be an interesting week.

great point by rrr we have longtime friends on both staffs. this is what everybody wanted was their shots at ironton. way before Portsmouth and gahs were added. it's up to the tigers to take the gut shots and pull off a knockout punch. fairland done broke the jinx Lawrence county teams had of not beating ironton. it's up to the fighting tigers to absorb the blows and claw their way back.this should be an incredibly exciting game for both sides. I just at the end want to hear how good of a game it was and not that the refs robbed somebody.

Gotta agree with mattash on this one, Redmen will be firing on all cylinders with a healthy team and something to prove. Three of their losses were 3 points or less and only lost to Fairland by seven. They are playing very solid ball and should be a great game

I truly hope that the tribe is satisfied with their choice of coaches. and give him a legitimate shot with his staff intact at building a successful program there at the hill. I'm very excited about this game that you know neither head coach here or staff wants to come out on the short end here.we visited rock hill assistant coach colegrove mom yesterday while me n mrs. bait were in ironton visiting young'uns and our grand daughter. mr. colegrove, whom I played ball with, I didn't get a chance to talk to because he had a grand baby asleep in his lap. awesome people.

This is a power run vs power run game that will probably be over by 8:15! Look for the Tigers to win this by 14.

Firebreather?? Power run game vs power run game??? I watched the entire Chesapeake/Ironton game and Ironton was never in anything different than a 1 back or empty set. Each play they had at least two wideouts and a slot. Ironton was in the shotgun probably 85% of the time. They ran #44 on the edge idk how many times they also threw for 200+ yards. So saying Ironton is a power run team is not true. Unless they changed their entire game plan just for Chesapeake.

I have a serious question here for rock hill folks. if the tribe beats the fighting tigers will this be the biggest victory in their program. never mind the current state of ironton football. to my knowledge and I may be wrong, has rock hill won a playoff game. I'm thinking they did one time and was there, but for the life of me I can't remember. it seems like hendoo was the fullback at the time. after fairland beat ironton I made a comment that is was the biggest upset in their history. I maintain that that is true. I asked dragons fans in all earnest because I wasn't sure. but got no rebuttal. since fairland has never beaten ironton, I think that is fair to say. ------------------------------------ if you are a Lawrence county team, the one team you want to beat is ironton. just like in Scioto county the one team you want to beat is the burg. ---------------------------- so with the utmost respect I ask. if the tribe comes into the tank and beats ironton, will it be considered their biggest win in their program. again, who could care less what the current state of ironton football is. looking for serious answers only.

The biggest victory in school's history came in 1932 when Rock Hill was known as Pedro. The game was Pedro vs Ironton at Pedro. Dick Gallagher was the coach at Pedro and the final score was Pedro 8 Ironton 0. The next year Dick Gallagher was coach at Ironton. He led Ironton to their first undefeated season in 1935. The Ironton team was led by the one and only George McAfee. Now enshrined in the NFL Hall of fame.

that is awesome information rrr, so it would be safe to assume that a victory by the redmen, if that happens -- would be the next biggest win in their school's history.

Has ironton seen an influx of daddy coaches? They are really helping the program at Trimble.

Ironton will win this one by 3 scores. The tribe is getting closer but still a few years away.
