After the results of last Friday night in the NCC, the 6-1, 3-1 Colonel Crawford Eagles are right back in the race for an NCC football championship finding themselves in a four way tie for first place. On Friday, the Eagles will host one of those four in the 4-3, 3-1 Wynford Royals. Last week the Royals stopped previously undefeated Galion 14-13, while Bucyrus was knocking off the conference's other unbeaten Upper Sandusky 37-36, forcing a four way tie for first heading into week eight. Colonel Crawford coach Ryan Teglovic says reguardless who the Royals start at quarterback wether it be Brock Williamson, Keaton Teynor or Corey Brown, he feels Wynford will look to get phyiscal and run the football, saying that Wynford's offense is centered around Brown. Brown has run for 462 yards in seven games and has scored four touchdowns. Williamson is second on the team in rushing with 366 yards in six games after missing last week because of injury. Against Galion, Teynor and Brown split duties at QB and the Royals offense outgained Galion 234 yards to 163. But it was Wynford's defense that was able to contain one of the area's best athletes in Tigers quarterback Darian Watkins, holding the Northwestern bound QB and defensive back to just 71 yards rushing on 16 carries while the Wynford secondary held the Tigers to just 99 yards through the air. For what it's worth to compare, the Eagles lost to Galion in a week four showdown 35-14 at Heise Park. In that game Watkins gained 222 yards rushing scoring five touchdowns on 30+ carries. Colonel Crawford offensive lineman Alex Miller says he (Watkins) seemed to be the center of their offense when they played us (Crawford), not so much, or so it seemed when they played the Royals. The Eagles are also fighting for their second consecutive playoff trip with the game against Division 6 Wynford and Division 4 Upper Sandusky(6-1), huge. A win over both the Royals and the Rams could put Crawford in the playoffs at home in the first week of the playoffs. The Eagles are currently ranked fifth in Division VI of Region 20. Crawford will close the regular season against Crestline (1-6) at home on Friday, November 1st.
