Warriors headed to Regional Finals


Harvest Prep (11-1) earned the top seed in the region in part because of five wins over Division II and III teams and rode an opportunistic defense to a 35-21 win over fourth-seeded Waterford in a regional semifinal Nov. 16. 

The Warriors forced four turnovers against Waterford and now will have their hands full with second-seeded Newark Catholic (9-3), which scored touchdowns on a blocked field goal and a punt return to blow out third-seeded Shadyside 40-0 in the other semifinal.

Harvest Prep has found a way to win despite seemingly endless injuries. The Green Wave’s only losses were to playoff teams, including undefeated Licking Valley.
