Great to Gallipolis in the playoffs again. Tough matchup for Gallipolis. Licking Valley wins 36-24.

Gallia will likely win. Won't be shocked if Licking Valley pulls the upset.

I'll take Gallia in this one, but it's gonna be a tough one.

Should be a very close ballgame. I'm going to pick the Blue Devils to edge LV.

Should be a great game between 2 evenly matched teams. I'm taking Gallia 17-14

Game is at Memorial Field. Seeing as there is not a lick of grass within 20 miles of that field, advantage Gallipolis.

I've heard rumors about moving it to Jackson (turf), but I cant see them taking away Gallipolis home field that they earned, no matter the condition of their field.

Probably the worst draw for Gallipolis.

Not sure if I'd pick John Glenn or Licking Valley as the best "road" team in week one.


But the Blue Devils are battle tested. Licking Valley has the tradition and an excellent head coach. Will be a heck of a contest.

agree a bad draw for the blue devils. But they are battled tested for sure and add in the shape of their field come game time I think the blue devils will defend their home mud well

Are they seriously going to allow them to play this game at that disgrace of a football field. Why not move that game to Pt Pleasant or Jackson?

Bad draw for GA. Not an upset. Valley just way better

Just has been announced that this game will be played in Jackson. The field conditions plus the forecast for the end of the week has caused this move.

Don't agree with OHSAA on this one. GAHS earned a home game and it should be played there. I bet the OHSAA never intended to let the Blue Devils play at home. They just needed to negotiate a place to play. I hope the Blue Devils rocks it and sticks it OHSAA for this move. Just more incentive to win. However, Gallipolis needs to address the field issue or this is going to happen to them every year they earn a 1-4 spot until something is done.

The LCL is a tough league (Granville, Licking Valley, Johnstown, Newark Catholic, Licking Heights, Heath) As a former Licking Countian, I'm very familiar with the LCL (Licking County League) & have had to hear over & over how much better they are than us (Gallia Academy). Never thought we'd be playing Valley but here we are. I'm certain this will be a very physical game. Just read it's being played in Jackson. Don't make me eat crow. Bring home the win Blue Devils.You can win this game! I'm going with Gallia Academy for the WIN! :twisted:

Not agreeing or disagreeing with the decision. I wonder if OHSAA did come down and inspect the field before making this decision? If the move had to be made, they couldn't be playing in a nicer stadiam.

The decision was made by the school administration. My wife works there and it’s also posted on the GAHS FB page.

Any one know what Licking Valley offense looks like? Trying to decide what game to go to. Lol

I brought this up originally on Saturday morning in the "Gallia, week 11" thread and thought it would come to this. Jackson wins again. They could have kept it in county @ River Valley but Jackson means a shorter bus ride and more $$$$$.

I cannot believe that this game will be played in Jackson. Not only taking away the home field advantage but people need to remember one thing. The last time Gallipolis was in the playoffs they won their first game at home because of a muddy, wet field because they knew how to play in the mud and the team they played never played on anything but turf. Why would you want to take away your advantage and since there are no team close with turf that isn't still playing or in the playoff, how will you be getting any practice on turf? Big mistake to take this game out of Gallia County. Good luck Blue Devils!

I would think Gallipolis would want to win because they are confident in their team’s ability, and not win because of forcing a team to play in a mud sewer pit.
Good grief! Typical whining Gallipolis.
Safety of the players needs to be the first priority.
Excellent decision to move it.
