They’re back!

Just in time for the Halloween season, the Ursuline High football team has clinched a spot in Ohio’s postseason. The Irish are continuing to receive state-wide recognition as the Division V team no one wants to meet after the regular-season ends.

In this week’s Associated Press poll of Ohio’s teams, the Irish (6-3) again are ranked Number 10 while Crestview (9-0) dropped from fourth to fifth in Division V in the next-to-last survey of Ohio’s broadcasters and sportswriters.

Ursuline, which won the Division V crown from 2008-10, missed the playoffs last season.

But the Irish’s 44-24 victory over archrival Cardinal Mooney last Friday has secured Ursuline’s playoff berth and has the Cardinals (3-5) hoping for a miraculous finish in order to defend their Division IV crown.

This Friday, Ursuline travels to Akron to play St. Vincent-St. Mary (7-2), the state’s number-nine team in Division III.

Crestview will be at home against South Range (7-2) to settle the Inter Tri-County League Tier One title. The Rebels already have earned a piece of the championship. If the Raiders win, they’ll share the league crown.

Three other Mahoning Valley teams received recognition in this week’s poll. In Division I, Austintown Fitch (8-1) moved up one spot to ninth after defeating Uniontown Lake, 28-6. The Falcons close their season against Mooney.

Brookfield (9-0) moved down one position to sixth after last week’s 33-7 victory over Youngstown Christian. The Warriors will go for a regular-season sweep against LaBrae (1-8).

In Division VI, Warren JFK (8-1) moved into 10th after defeating Bedford Chanel, 30-12.
