State semifinal scouting report
St. Vincent-St. Mary (11-2) vs. Dover (11-2)
What: Division III state semifinal.
When: 7 tonight.
Where: Paul Brown Tiger Stadium, Massillon.
Coaches: Dan Boarman of St. V-M and Dan Ifft of Dover.
Notebook: St. V-M defeated Chargin Falls 34-7 last week in a regional final in Solon. The Fighting Irish feature quarterback Clayton Uecker on offense with receivers Jordan Hargrove and Fransohn Bickley, running back Parris Campbell Jr. and lineman Nick Karipides. The Irish defense is young, but talented with Newman Williams and Dante Booker. Senior quarterback Mason Mamarella accounted for six touchdowns last week in Dover’s 48-21 win over West Holmes in a regional final in Canton. He rushed for three and passed for three more. It is the first regional title for the Tornadoes, who played in the game five previous times and lost. Cory Contini, Trey Wallick, Brant Raber, Jonathan Fell and Demetrius Farmer are consistent playmakers in the Tornadoes offense. Farmer leads a Dover defense that includes Aaronn Sergent and Devin Patrick.
