Last Night in the 112th Meeting of Bellaire vs Martins Ferry the purple riders shut out the big reds 34-0 and the purple riders clinched the 4th spot in region 19 and will now face the big reds again in week 11 at Martins Ferry for the second week in a row will it be the same outcome again or could the big reds get revenge on the purple riders and advance to week 12
Well we learned a couple thing from Friday nights slaughter... Blair can't throw the ball... Blair can't defend the pass!! Ferry on the other hand has been hot and cold in the passing game so which game shows up will either give us another similar outcome or if we have the same offense we had vs Indian Creek it will be a long long night !!!
I remember it happened over a dozen years ago when Edison faced rival Beaver Local in the playoffs. Beaver rolled in week 10, but lost their starting QB (Duke bound QB Jamin Pasteur) to injury. In the playoff game, Edison won rather easily.
As for this game I'd go with Martins Ferry. Bellaire is big on line, has a nice RB, but no receivers the Purple Riders can't cover, plus I think Martins Ferry receivers will have a field day. Ferry by 20+
