Division II, Region 8
Friday, Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

#4 Trotwood-Madison (9-2) vs. #1 Winton Woods (10-1)
Last season the two teams met in the Region 8, Regional Finals in a game that Winton Woods won 28-7. This rematch has been highly anticipated ever since that contest ended. Trotwood-Madison has the talent on defense to corral the horses in the Warriors' high-powered rushing attack. Winton Woods is averaging 356 yards per game with 50 touchdowns on the ground. The Rams' offense is peaking at the right time, averaging 50 points per game, 10.6 yards per rush with 20 total offensive touchdowns in the last three tilts. Quarterback Marcus Graham has been sensational with 606 yards passing, 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in that span. Teams have found the end zone frequently of late against the Warriors, who are giving up 20 points per game over their last six outings.

#2 Kings (10-1) vs. #6 Mount Healthy (9-2)
The Mount Healthy Owls are hooting with confidence after the school's first-ever playoff win at Turpin that extended their winning streak to nine. Jamire Westbrook has taken his game to a whole new level with back-to-back 200 yard, four-touchdown rushing performances for Kings. He is going to get his, so the Owls must concentrate on stopping everyone else. Knights' quarterback Jensen Gephardt was rattled for three interceptions against Tecumseh last week. Joel Heath and company pressured Turpin into four picks on Friday night. The game features two of the FAVC's best thieves in the Owls' Demond Jackson and Justin Crull of the Knights, who each have seven interceptions. The winner of the turnover battle will reign victorious in this contest.
