At 4-2 in all games and 1-1 in the Northern Ohio League, the Ontario Warriors will head to W.W.Skiles Field in Shelby to take on the 1-5 Whippets Friday. On paper, Ontario is a big favorite. They were an even bigger favorite last season when Shelby came to Copeland Field at O for their last 13, having lost a playoff game in 2010 at Clyde, then going 0-10 in 2011, then falling to Madison and Lexington to begin 2012. But despite the losing streak it was Shelby who dumped the Warriors 34-14, to get their first win in almost two years. Warriors quarterback Tyler Boatwright who has thrown for 1,067 yards with nine touchdown passes, remembers last season saying he knew that Shelby had players and that too many of his teammates were looking at Shelby's record, not their ablility. Senior offensive lineman Tyler Gorbett agreed saying the team will not be looking past Shelby this year after what happened at home a season ago. Coach Scott Kreger also commented on last year's game saying we didn't just get beat, we got drilled. Kreger also added that his club can ill afford to look past anyone reguardless of record. The Warriors still have a shot at winning the NOL if they are able to win out, plus winning their final four games against Shelby, Bellevue, Sandusky and Tiffin Columbian would more than likely put them in the post season. Ontario is curretly ranked 11th in Region 12 of Division IV, they would need to finish 8th to advance to week 11.
