You're hearing the term ``trap game'' more these days. It refers to a team that is favored to win overlooking a particular (underdog) team to get ready for a big game the following week.
In the case of St. Vincent-St. Mary (4-1), ranked No. 5 in this week's Associated Press Division III state poll, could this be a trap game this week?
The Irish will play at Canton Central Catholic (2-3). St. V-M has consecutive big games after the CCC game and they are against rival Walsh Jesuit (3-2) and perennial power Youngstown Cardinal Mooney (5-0), which is the state's No. 1 team in Division III.
But you have to know that CCC doesn't feel like the underdog, especially playing at home and the Crusaders have nothing but upset on their minds.
