After a 30-14 loss to Mansfield Senior two weeks ago, the Ashland Arrows bounced back with a 30-10 win last Friday at home against Orrville which kept them a game back of the OCC leading Mansfield Tygers at 4-3 and 3-1 in conference play. This Friday the Arrows will host the team they share second place with in the 5-2, 3-1 Clear Fork Colts. The Colts will be trying to make it four straight wins on Friday and feature one of the best all around players in the area in quarterback Kadin Chrastina. Through seven games the Clear Fork QB has run for 914 yards, passed for 752 more and has 17 touchdowns, 12 running, five passing. He has also kicked 15 extra points and has two field goals to his credit. Ashland coach Scott Valentine says the Colts offense revolves around Chrastina who he hopes his team will be able to contain stating Clear Fork can hit the big play at any time we just have to be able to recover to the next play. Ashland will counter with the area's leading passer in Nich Zurcher who has 1,846 yards passing through seven games with 14 touchdowns. His two favorite targets have been Jacob Allton who has 653 yards on 48 receptions with eight touchdowns and Max Stringer with 40 catches for 589 yards and five touchdowns. Each team also has one the area leaders in pass interceptions. Ashland's Jacob Allton has four, Clear Fork's Ridge Winand three. Both Clear Fork and Ashland still are in the chase for a playoff spot, with both needing to win their remaining three games to have a chance to advance. The Arrows are ranked ninth in Division II, Region Five. They have the Colts, 2-5 Madison next week then close the regular season at 1-6 Lexington. Clear Fork, who is ranked 12th in Division IV, Region 12, has the Arrows, then at home to 4-3 Orrville, then wrap up the regular season against 5-2 West Holmes in Bellville. Both need to reach the top eight of their respective regions to get to week 11.
