Holy Name (Parma Heights) @ Cleveland Central Catholic (Cleveland) – Football


Plain Dealer staff reports, October 28, 2011 10:40 a.m.
Holy Name won’t be returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2005. However, the Green Wave can prevent Cleveland Central Catholic from reaching the promised land for the first time since 1982.
Holy Name (6-3, 4-0) can win the North Coast League White Division with a victory at CCC on Saturday afternoon and crush any hopes the Ironmen (6-3, 3-1) might have of sneaking into the postseason. CCC stands No. 9 in Division IV, Region 13, with both Manchester and LaBraewithin striking distance.
“They are playing for their playoff lives, and we can win the title outright,” said Holy Name second-year coach Mark Pinzone. “They have a lot to play for, and so do we. We’re happy with our kids, but we’ve got more steps to take.”
Holy Name went 1-9 two seasons ago and 4-6 last year.

Holy Name and Rocky River will go at it again on Saturday in the Division II Rocky River district final. It will be played at St. Ignatius at 7 p.m., with the winner advancing to a regional semifinal at Brush High on Wednesday.

The Pirates (16-1-1), who were in a tie with Maumee for fifth in the final poll, had a much tougher time advancing as they held off West Shore Conference rival Bay in a shootout on Wednesday.

Looming for Saturday’s winner is a possible meeting against top-ranked Walsh Jesuit, a 9-0 winner against Aurora.

The Warriors (16-0-2), dropping down after winning last year’s Division I championship, host Revere (13-2-3) in the Kent district final on Saturday at 5 p.m. That winner goes to the regional semifinal at Ravenna.
