AW faces Northview in Districts

The Generals have a chance to make history Monday evening in their game against Northview in the OHSAA Sylvania District Quarterfinal game. Anthony Wayne has never won a 2nd-round game nor beaten a team from the Red division in the state tournament.

There was a 4-year run when AW faced a Red team in the quarterfinals:

  • 2013: 5-1 loss to Bowling Green
  • 2012: 7-0 loss to St. Francis
  • 2011: 11-3 loss to Northview
  • 2010: 12-2 loss to St. Francis

Based on our research, the only time a White division team has beaten a Red division team in the quarterfinals was when Perrysburg defeated Bowling Green in 2008 (after a victory over Findlay in the first round).

The Generals’ best chance to defeat a Red team in the districts was in 2009,  when AW lost to Findlay 6-3 in the opening round after beating them in a tournament earlier in the season.

In addition to 2011, Anthony Wayne has played Northview one other time in the districts: a 10-0 loss in 2004 (in first-round play).

With the 5-2 win over Perrysburg on Thursday, the Generals have won a district game in 7 of the past 18 years, for a record of 7-18.
