Ontario begins a new challenge on Friday, when they travel to Willard (1-2) for the programs first game as a member of the Northern Ohio League. The team played in the North Central Conference for over 25 years against some of the smaller school's in the area and will now be competing against larger school's almost every week.

Warriors head coach Scott Kreger says it would mean a lot to the team to get off to a good start in the teams first season in the league. He recognized the more stiff competition and says his guys will have to "get up" for every game.

Ontario senior cornerback Eddrick Holley says he's excited about playing against bigger school's every week and looks forward to challenging some of the league's best wideouts. The 6' 3" Holley says he typically draws the task of covering the opposing teams biggest wide receiver and that was certainly the case last week.

The 2-1 Warriors suffered their first defeat last week against a Norwayne team that possesses rare size at the wide receiver position. This week however, against a Willard squad that plays old school, smash mouth football, Ontario won't have to worry about facing a spread attack.

Senior safety Logan Armstrong, who leads the team with 29 tackles, says he will be playing much closer to the line of scrimmage against the Flashes to try and stop their running attack. Armstrong also says it's big to bounce back with a win this week because the team doesn't want to fall to 2-2 and have to play catch up the rest of the year.

Ontario has beaten Willard six straight times, including 40- 12 on their home field last season. The game can be seen Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. on WOHZ TV and Sunday at 3 p.m. on WMFD.
