The Windham Bombers dropped their fourth straight game of the season and their 11th dating back to last year. Unfortunately for the Bombers 41-0 loss to the undefeated Rootstown Rovers is not the worse news. Regrettably, the schedule is not in the Bombers’ favor this week as the Southeast Pirates host the Bombers this Friday. The Bombers and Pirates last met in October of 2003 with the Pirates coming out on top 26-7.
The Newton Falls Tigers have one of the toughest schedules around. The first four games they have played, the teams have a combined loss of one. Last week the Tigers fell to undefeated Girard 24-55. This week the Tigers host 4-0 Brookfield.
The Crestwood Red Devils bulked up their schedule as well. The four losses this season were  all to  potential playoff teams. Last week Ravenna traveled to Mantua and walked out with a 56-3 victory. This week the Red Devils host 1-3 Norton Panthers.
The Cardinal Huskies fell victim for the fourth straight game, this time in overtime, 27-24, to the Skippers from Fairport Harding. Cardinal comes home this week to host the 1-3 Black Knights from Newbury.
Garfield lost their second in three weeks last week by falling to the undefeated Pirates 24-7. While Wyllie’s 44-18 record and two playoff berths since the beginning of the 2005 season are impressive, it is the 9-13 record against teams with winning records that jumps out at me. This week Garfield has a date with 0-4 East Canton at JAG Stadium before clashing with the undefeated Rovers next week.
