The Ravenna Ravens’ season came to an end Friday, falling 24-6 to Chagrin Falls in a Division III, Region 9 regional semifinal contest.Ravenna was held to a season-low 210 yards of total offense as a big and physical Chagrin Falls defensive line dictated the tempo.
“A lot of those creases closed really fast for us on offense,” Ravenna coach Jim Lunardi said. “Chagrin Falls is a physical team, and they did a great job across the defensive line.”
Ravenna senior running back D.J. Jones was held to under 100 yards for the first time this season, carrying the ball 23 times for 85 yards.
As Ravenna’s offense struggled, its defense stayed out too long, ultimately allowing 368 yards of total offense — with much of it coming during a first half that saw Chagrin Falls build a commanding lead.

Ravenna got over the hump last Friday, winning the program’s first postseason game in dramatic fashion against County Division champion Southeast.Now, much like Kent Roosevelt, the reward for a landmark victory is a date against the top seed in their region.Two-time defending Division IV state runner-up Chagrin Falls made the leap to Division III, Region 9 this season and is one of the favorites to make it back to the state finals.
“You don’t get to be runner-up in the state two years in a row by not being fundamentally sound,” Ravenna coach Jim Lunardi said. “They’ve got great athletes, good size and they’re very well-coached.”
The Tigers are coming into tonight’s game with a head-full of steam, pounding Firelands last Friday in a 66-14 bloodletting.

RAVENNA, Ohio – Friday’s Division III, Region 9 quarterfinal between Ravenna and Southeast had more see-saws than a playground.By the time things finally fizzled out, the Ravens won their first playoff game in school history, 42-35 over the Pirates. But believe it when people tell you years from now, they sat on the edge of their seats at Gilchrest Field until the final snap.Every time it seemed Ravenna (9-2) was finally looking to put the nail in the proverbial coffin of Southeast (10-1), the Pirates pulled out another trick. It wasn’t over until Ravens strong safety Kyle Kornbau swatted away a pass intended for Trevor Norquest in the end zone, giving the Ravenna faithful a chance to breathe.

RAVENNA, Ohio — All it took was a whole lot of D.J. Jones for Ravenna to earn its first playoff win in school history.Friday’s action was so heavy, in fact, that the clock stopped working with 1:33 remaining.But when things finally came to an end, the Ravens knocked off Southeast, 42-35, to mark the sixth year in a row they’ve beaten the Pirates.
This time, it didn’t come in a Portage Trail Conference contest. It came in a Division III, Region 9 quarterfinal.
But things weren’t decided until Ravenna strong safety Kyle Kornbau deflected a pass from Noah Kainrad intended for Trevor Norquest in the end zone with less than 30 seconds to play.
Because of it, Ravenna (9-2) will face top-seeded Chagrin Falls (11-0) next week at a neutral site to be determined.

|Finally, the answer for what the difference between the Portage Trail Conference County Division’s best and one of the Metro Division’s elite has been answered.It’s a batted-down flee-flicker in the end zone.Ravenna survived an all-out war Friday night, defeating County Division champion Southeast 42-35 to move on in the Division III, Region 9 playoffs.“We were pretty helter-skelter out there at times tonight, and that’s something we’re really going to have to clean up going forward,” Ravenna coach Jim Lunardi said. “I think we talked about burying the hatchet from (Week 10’s loss to Kent Roosevelt), but I feel like that was still lingering for us.
“We spent a lot of energy last Friday night, and we played a great team tonight in Southeast,” Lunardi added. “I know Southeast puts a good product out there and I can’t say enough about them. They’re really resilient.”
The first playoff victory in the program’s history did not come easy for Ravenna (9-2), which had to withstand a furious rally by the Pirates (10-1) during the game’s final minutes.
Trailing 42-28 after a Ravenna senior D.J. Jones touchdown — his fifth of the night — with 5:15 remaining, Southeast took over at its own 28-yard line.
Pirates senior quarterback Noah Kainrad took control on the drive, carrying the ball four times for 23 yards and completing five passes for 66 yards —including a fourth-and-19 conversion to fellow senior Tylor Brokaw.
After bringing the ball down to the Ravenna 13, Kainrad found senior Bryant Lavigna, who shook off a tackler and ran in for a 13-yard score to cut Ravenna’s lead to 42-35 with 1:28 remaining in regulation.
Kainrad finished the night 13-of-21 for 178 yards and two touchdowns, including a 65-yard scoring pass to junior Trevor Norquest in the first quarter. Kainrad also rushed the ball for 63 yards as he kept a number of Pirates drives alive.
“Our leadership has been in these battles before,” Southeast coach Steve Sigworth said. “We’ve been down at Mogadore and had adversity at Field. We just kept saying we’ll play hard every play and go until the game is over. That’s what leaders (like Kainrad) did for us tonight.”
Southeast recovered an improbable on-side kick attempt on the ensuing play as Lavigna rose up in the middle of a pile and snagged the Greg Miller kick.
Lavigna’s recovery gave Southeast one more shot at tying the game as it took over at the Ravenna 44. Kainrad again drove the Pirates into position before being faced with a 4th-and-5 at the Ravenna 29.
After taking the snap, Kainrad handed off to Brokaw, who pitched it back to Kainrad. From there, the senior quarterback looked deep and hurled a pass into the end zone that was barely knocked down by junior safety Kyle Kornbau to seal the win for Ravenna.
“I can’t say enough about (Kornbau),” Lunardi said. “If you got him out here to talk he’d say one or two words, but he’s a 4.0 student, a smart kid. That’s why we moved him back there to safety in the first place.”
As has been the case all year, Ravenna got a full day’s work from Jones at the running back spot. The speedy senior dodged, darted and pinballed his way through the Pirates line 35 times for 218 yards.
Up next for the Ravens is a neutral site date on Friday with Chagrin Falls, the top-seeded team in the region. The Tigers defeated Oberlin Firelands on Friday 66-14 to set up next Friday’s regional semifinal date with Ravenna.
“We see Chagrin Falls every year at Mount Union (football camp) and we compete with them during 7-on-7s,” Lunardi said. “They’re a great football team with a lot of tradition. They do everything right and very little wrong.”

|It all comes down to this in the Portage Trail Conference Metro Division as two of the division’s best teams meet up with major implications on the line.
Wait, what? Southeast is in the County Division now? This is Week 11?
The matchup that probably no one predicted came true after the dust settled last Friday night as County Division champion Southeast will travel down the road to take on the host Ravenna Ravens tonight in what might be the most interesting Division III, Region 9 first-round playoff game.
“You know, we’re trying to just look at this game like it’s another opponent for us,” Southeast coach Steve Sigworth said. “But we realize that Ravenna is a backyard rival and that definitely adds another element to the game (for the students and community).”
Ravenna coach Jim Lunardi echoed Sigworth’s sentiment when it comes to preparing his team for a Week 11 home game.
“People can read into this game and playing Southeast all they want, but we need to just be ready for a great game,” Lunardi said. “You can say we’re in the Metro and they’re in the County, but what I know is that there are going to be two good teams out there Friday night and they’ll want to beat each other.”
As for the game itself, the two squads seem to be as similar, yet as different, as you can possibly be.
Both Ravenna and Southeast like to run the ball — the Ravens net 340 yards a game on the ground and Southeast averages about 294 yards.
Ravenna senior back D.J. Jones can really fly, totaling 2,132 yards and 28 touchdowns, while Southeast senior Tylor Brokaw is at 1,179 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Where the two teams differ is at the quarterback spot. Ravenna senior Brandon Holt is a fantastic runner, totaling 799 yards and 11 touchdowns. Much of what Ravenna does comes from keeping the defense afraid of handoffs to Jones or keepers to Holt.
Southeast senior quarterback Noah Kainrad can also run the ball, putting up 544 yards and 10 touchdowns. But Kainrad is more of a threat with his arm, throwing for 1,162 and 13 touchdowns to just two interceptions. [Brandon Holt threw for 1,003 yards and 9 touchdowns during the regular season but threw 6 interceptions, three of which occurred in week 10 against Kent.]
“I really like what Southeast does as a football team,” Lunardi said. “They’re really well-coached and they play with a lot of tenacity. We know that they’re going to throw the kitchen sink at us when we get out there (tonight).”
Sigworth said that the key for his team is to reflect that coaching and play disciplined football against Ravenna’s dynamic athletes.
“We can’t defend the broken play against Ravenna, we know that much,” Sigworth said. “So what we have to do is make them earn everything they get. Ravenna is the best team we’ve played all year — they’ll make plays (against Southeast), but we have to make sure we play good defense and make them work for what they get.”

|Take a bow Wadsworth, Hudson and Tallmadge.
You, too, Kent Roosevelt, Highland, St. Vincent-St. Mary, Ravenna, Southeast, Walsh Jesuit, Black River, Manchester and Mogadore.
Those 12 teams – down one from last season – will represent the SportsInk.com area this weekend as over 25 percent of the teams the site covers reached the football postseason.
Will any of them follow in the footsteps of the 2010 Buchtel team that reached the Division III State Final?
That remains to be seen.
Below, you’ll find snippets of each region containing a SportsInk.com school.
We’ll show you the matchups, give you the favorites as well as sleepers and point out potential first-round upsets.
There’s also a brief overview of the regions as well.
Division I, Region 2 (Saturday, 7 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 Whitehouse Anthony Wayne (8-2) at No. 1 Toledo Whitmer (10-0); No. 7 Wadsworth (9-1) at No. 2 Canton GlenOak (9-1); No. 6 Findlay (9-1) at No. 3 Hudson (9-1); No. 5 Canton McKinley (8-2) at No. 4 Sylvania Southview (9-1)
The skinny: While there are four teams from out west among the eight, this is still Stark County strong with Federal League teams in McKinley and GlenOak. Given the way the Bulldogs played in a 23-20 win over Massillon, the school might find its way to a regional final after being upset by Medina in Week 11 last year. In fact, a GlenOak/McKinley regional final isn’t out of the question.
The favorite: GlenOak
Dark horse: McKinley
Possible first round upset: McKinley over Southview
Division II, Region 5 (Friday, 7:30 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 West Geauga (7-3) at No. 1 Walsh Jesuit (8-1); No. 7 New Philadelphia (7-3) at No. 2 Tallmadge (8-2); No. 6 Madison (8-2) at No. 3 Aurora (9-1); No. 5 Warren Howland (9-0) at No. 4 Kent Roosevelt (9-1)
The skinny: Walsh can’t look past either Howland or Roosevelt in Week 12 as Tallmadge might have the easier draw. That’s not to say Aurora, whose only loss came in overtime to Chagrin Falls, can be overlooked. Week 11 might go status quo, but if you’re looking to pick the winners in Week 12 bring a coin. The Warriors are making their first playoff appearance since 2008. Tallmadge took down Kent in the first round last year.
The favorite: Walsh Jesuit
Dark horse: Aurora
Possible first round upset: Howland over Roosevelt
Division II, Region 6 (Friday, 7:30 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 Highland (6-4) at No. 1 Avon (9-1); No. 7 Tiffin Columbian (8-2) at No. 2 Sandusky (9-1); No. 6 Shaw (6-3) at No. 3 Maple Heights (8-1); No. 5 Olmsted Falls (7-3) at No. 4 Toledo Central Catholic (7-3)
The skinny: Avon gave Mentor Lake Catholic all it could handle before losing in Week 10. Maple Heights has made it to the state finals two years in a row and won it all last year. This region is as interesting as it is diverse with teams coming from all areas. While Sandusky went 9-1, an Avon/Maple Heights matchup is likely in Week 13.
The favorite: Avon
The dark horse: Maple Heights
Possible first round upset: Olmsted Falls over Central Catholic
Division III, Region 9 (Friday, 7:30 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 Firelands (10-0) at No. 1 Chagrin Falls (10-0); No. 7 Benedictine (7-3) at No. 2 Lake Catholic (9-1); No. 6 St. Vincent-St. Mary (8-2) at No. 3 University School (9-1); No. 5 Southeast (10-0) at No. 4 Ravenna (8-2)
The skinny: Chagrin Falls reached the Division IV state finals in 2010 and 2009. Mentor Lake Catholic was a state semifinalist in Division II those same seasons. Throw in a St. Vincent-St. Mary team that handed Walsh Jesuit its only loss and this region is loaded. Portage Trail Metro runner-up Ravenna is back in the playoff business after a narrow Division II miss last year. Southeast is making its first appearance since 2005. The winner here is certainly battle-tested the rest of the way. St. V-M hopes to recapture its swagger from earlier in the season.
The favorite: Chagrin Falls
The dark horse: Lake Catholic
Possible first round upset: St. V-M over University School
Division IV, Region 13 (Saturday, 7 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 Canton Central Catholic (8-2) at No. 1 Girard (9-1); No. 7 Leavittsburg LaBrae (6-4) at No. 2 Orrville (7-3) ; No. 6 Brookfield (9-1) at No. 3 Creston Norwayne (9-1); No. 5 Manchester (7-3) at No. 4 Black River (8-2)
The skinny: Picking a favorite here isn’t easy as Girard, Norwayne and Orrville all have the makeup to go deep in the playoffs. The best first-round matchup happens with Manchester and Black River. The Pirates beat the Panthers 29-28 in Week 3 in New Franklin, but had to come back from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to do it. Manchester won two playoff games last year. Black River is making its first appearance since 2003.
The favorite: Orrville
The dark horse: Norwayne
Possible first round upset: Manchester over Black River
Division VI, Region 21 (Saturday, 7 p.m.)
The matchups: No. 8 Cleveland Villa Angela-St. Joseph (6-4) at No. 1 Berlin Center Western Reserve (10-0); No. 7 Wellsville (5-5) at No. 2 Shadyside (7-3); No. 6 Mogadore (7-3) at No. 3 Youngstown Christian (9-1); No. 5 Malvern (9-1) at No. 4 Thompson Ledgemont (10-0)
The skinny: This could be the weakest region in the state despite the fact it has two returning state semifinalists in it – Mogadore and Shadyside. Though a four seed, Ledgemont beat just two teams with a winning record this year. Whoever makes it out of here might be in for a rude awakening in the state semifinals.
The favorite: Western Reserve
The dark horse: Youngstown Christian
Possible first round upset: Malvern over Ledgemont
