MEDINA: There’s just something about the blue and yellow of Copley’s boys soccer team that causes Medina to see red.

The Indians threw everything they could at the Bees on Friday in the season opener for both teams at Medina Memorial Stadium, yet Medina walked out a 3-1 winner.

Down a goal at halftime, the Bees came out determined in the second half and emerged with their fourth win in the teams’ last five meetings.

“They’re our archrivals, you know what I mean?” Medina forward Andy Prostor said. “You come out every single year and it’s been the first game the last two years. They beat us 5-2 … two years ago and ever since then, we’ve held a little bit of a grudge on them.

“Every single time we face them, it’s just a challenge. Even though it’s the first game of the season, it’s the most important game of the season.”

The Bees have ended the Indians’ season the last two years in the Medina Division I district final and have stopped campaigns in three of the last four. They started 2017 with a determined win.

Down a goal after Evan Malpass scored 10 minutes into things, Medina never looked back in a dominant second half.

Prostor found Mike Kelly five minutes after intermission and then scored two himself off assists by Brandon Leckie and Parker Csiszar.

What the win also did was send a message to the Indians that even though first-team All-Ohioan Justin Libertowski might be off at Ashland University, the district still goes through Medina.

“This is a huge game,” Kelly said. “We’re a huge rival with them. We’ve been working hard. Some thought since we lost Will [Turrittin] and Justin that we wouldn’t be as good, but we just filled in the shoes, put the work in and got the win.”

Winners of three of the last four district finals, the Bees made a big statement with a win the first time out this season.

Medina hasn’t lost to Copley since Oct. 25, 2014, and is 8-4-2 in the last 14 meetings. The senior class has lost only twice — both times when the players were freshmen.

“We have a legacy to uphold,” Prostor said. “We made it to the Final Four last year. The goal is to go further and it starts now. It started in the preseason. Now is our first real challenge. We had to come out.”

As strong as the Indians were in the first half, the Bees kicked things up a notch and held the Indians to one other shot late in the game as defenders Andrew Horton, Grayson Madden, Leckie and Tom Guta — all returning letter winners — made sure keeper Tyler Glasenapp was well protected.

“It was three defensive mistakes,” Indians coach David Antal said. “We had them at four shots on goal, but a defensive mistake cost. We had to match their intensity. That was our talk at halftime.

“This is a great game. It’s a fun game. I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to play in this game. Medina came out and said this one isn’t over.”

What: The Ohio High School Boys Volleyball Association Division II state tournament

Where: Capital University in Columbus

When: Saturday and Sunday

Area team: Archbishop Hoban (20-4)

Saturday’s state semifinals: Kettering Archbishop Alter vs. Cincinnati Archbishop McNicholas, 5 p.m.; Dublin Scioto vs. Hoban, 6:45 p.m.

Sunday’s state final: 2 p.m.

Hoban’s top players: Seniors Austin Gerwig, Lance Talmage, Carson Miller, Dominic Didado, Henry Schwendler, Brandon Eckman and Conner Maloy, and juniors Jack Bahmer and Jeremy Leyden Jr.

Hoban coach Jeremy Leyden says: “Austin, Lance and Carson are very, very special players. We are very lucky to have them all on the same team together. … Last year was special because we didn’t have any seniors. All of these guys stepped into roles and did a really good job of stepping up. Without any leadership in front of them, they took some beatings, but they learned a lot and came back this year as basically the same team. The kids walked in really hungry.”

Team tidbits: Hoban enters the state tournament having won seven of its last eight games, including a regional semifinal win over St. Vincent-St. Mary (3-0) and a regional final win over Walsh Jesuit (3-0). … The Knights have played and defeated Alter, the defending Division II state champion. … The Division I state tournament is also this weekend with quarterfinal matches on Saturday, and the semifinals and final on Sunday. The Division I field includes Westerville South, Cleveland St. Ignatius, Centerville, Cincinnati St. Xavier, Cincinnati Elder, Beavercreek, St. Edward and Hilliard Darby. Hoban defeated St. Edward twice this season and Beavercreek once. The Knights also lost once apiece to St. Ignatius and St. Xavier.

Player tidbits: Gerwig is an outside hitter and an Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne recruit. He was named the Division II North Region player of the year and the Ohio player of year. Gerwig earned Division II first-team All-Ohio honors and Talmage was tabbed as a Division II second-team All-Ohioan. Schwendler plans to play at Hiram College. … Coach Jeremy Leyden, 45, is a Cuyahoga Falls resident and a 1990 Walsh Jesuit graduate. His son, Jeremy Leyden Jr., is Hoban’s setter.

Jackson will take on top-ranked Upper Arlington (18-2) in the championship, set to begin at 4 p.m. The Golden Bears, who dominated ninth-ranked Mount Notre Dame 22-4 in Wednesday’s other semifinal, will be looking for their third consecutive title — which includes a victory over Jackson in last season’s title game.

Julia Hartnett led Jackson with four goals in the semifinal victory, and Olivia Kroah added three.

Anna Woodhams and Kaylyn Dillon each tacked on an additional goal, and Woodhams also added an assist.

Grace Merrill was fantastic in goal for Jackson, turning away 11 shots and never allowing New Albany (18-4) to put pressure on the Polar Bears.

Lebanon vs. Hoover

Lebanon at a glance: Lebanon is making its fourth state tournament appearance, with runner-up finishes in 2015 and 2012. The Warriors are led by senior Chloe Allen, a Lake Erie College recruit, who is batting over .500 with 43 runs and 33 RBI. Molly Osborne, Grace Gressley, Alexis Strother and Kat Frank are each batting over .400 and Madison Hartman is batting around .350 with 52 RBI. Hartman is a St. John’s commit. Alex Gibson (Wittenberg), Madison DeGennaro (Presbyterian), Ashley West and Ashleigh Riffle are also starters. Lebanon’s top three pitchers are senior Taylor Lewis (St. Peter’s, 12-2), senior Strother (Tennessee-Martin, 10-1) and sophomore Frank (7-0).

Lebanon coach Brian Kindell says: “We have talented pitchers. … And one through nine, we are very, very balanced [in our batting lineup]. Our No. 8 hitter is as good as our No. 2 hitter and our No. 9 hitter is as good as our No. 1 hitter. We have a very consistent blend of speed all the way through it and I think the reason we have taken a step forward offensively is great plate discipline.”

Hoover at a glance: Hoover is seeking its ninth state championship in its ninth appearance in the state tournament. The Vikings won state titles in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2008, 2006, 1999 and 1998. Sophomore Grace Vesco is 18-8 with more than 100 strikeouts. Senior Kate Yun, a Ohio University recruit, leads Hoover with a .634 batting average, 10 home runs and 33 RBI. Sophomores Laurel DeVoe (.513, 36 RBI) and Kaitlynn O’Donnell (.472, 30 runs) are consistent hitters along with seniors Heather Pinney, Lauren Massolini, Lexi Forrest and Arianna Culler, junior Grace Cea and freshman Grace DeWalt.

Hoover coach Jerry Goodpasture says: “We have had our ups and downs throughout the year, but have seemed to peak during a 10-game winning streak. As far as our tournament run, as is in many areas you play some of the same teams over again — teams from your league — and we ended up winning our district by defeating Massillon Perry and Lake. And then in the regional we defeated Madison and defending state champion Walsh [Jesuit] for the regional title. … I think leadership has grown through the year.”

Keystone vs. Hoban

Keystone at a glance: Keystone is making its third state tournament appearance in a row and 16th overall. The Wildcats won state titles in 2012, 2006 and 1999, and were state runners-up in 2016, 2011, 2004, 2001, 1998, 1994 and 1992. Senior Lauren Shaw and sophomore Sydney Campbell are each 13-2 with over 100 strikeouts. Shaw has committed to the University Iowa and Campbell is an Oakland University pledge. Key hitters Paige Hartley, Val Broschk, Talia Minisall and Ali Pyles have committed to play at Cleveland State University. Hitters Sammie Stefan (Maryland), Autumn Acord (Kent State) and Madi Nunez (Wright State) are also college softball recruits, and McKenah Peters (Youngstown State) is a basketball recruit. The Wildcats also get steady play from Brooke Piazza, Marlie McNulty, Shelby Fortune, Angel Minisall, Summer Metcalf and Madi Cendrosky. Stefan and McNulty are both batting over .500, and Stefan has 53 RBI and McNulty has scored 36 runs.

Keystone coach Jim Piazza says: “We had a very challenging schedule this year and I like the way our kids responded to it. We have a great mixture of veteran players plus youth. We challenged them earlier this year to prepare them for this run. … We haven’t had the same starting lineup all year.”

Hoban at a glance: Hoban returns to the state tournament for the second year in a row and 10th time overall. The Knights won state titles in 1992, 1991, 1987, 1986, 1985, 1984 and 1983. Senior Laney Jones, an Ashland University recruit, is Hoban’s top pitcher at 15-2 and is also a key hitter. Katie Clark, a Robert Morris recruit, is a regular contributor along with Allyssa Hagenbaugh, Ashley Matousek, Chloe Weidrick, Jessica Knicely, Alex Whitmore, Adrianna Powers, Emma Terzola, Maddie Terzola and Olivia Blay. Weid­rick, Whitmore and Emma Terzola are all batting over .400. Whit­more is a Marshall pledge.

Hoban coach Frank Voss says: “I think we have a good mix as far as the juniors and seniors are concerned. We do have a couple of sophomores in the mix, and I think the experience we had last year has helped all of these kids a lot. They have played a lot of games and are more or less relaxed. They are confident and I think that experience has really done a lot to move us forward this year.”

Maumee at a glance: Maumee was a state runner-up in 2001. Junior Justin Studenka and senior Matt Burkett are Maumee’s top pitchers with a combined record of 10-4. Burkett, Tyler Archambeau, John Henry and Matt LeCron are senior captains. Burkett, Archambeau, Caleb Brown and Jordan Key are all batting over .300. Burkett is a Ohio Northern recruit and Archambeau is a Findlay pledge. Zach Marvin and Devon Gleghorn also start for the Panthers.

Maumee coach Cam Coutcher says: “Our kids have worked really hard at doing the fundamental rights and playing hard to win games. We are probably not the most talented team in the state, but we are going to outwork everybody. … We don’t really have any stars. We have great leadership and a lot of people continue to step up.”

Tallmadge at a glance: Tallmadge is seeking its second state championship after winning the Division II state title in 2002 and finishing as a state runner-up in 2001, 2000, 1996 and 1966. The Blue Devils are led by senior Josh Taylor and juniors Phillip Glasser, Scott Seeker, Zach Boyd, Jared Burick, Seth Gergely, Jake Rensel, Mikah McGlaughlin and Derek Lightel. Sophomores Rich Eyre, Jake Reifsnyder and Sam Seeker also start for Tallmadge, which used multiple bunts to beat Chardon Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin and Canfield in the regional tournament. Burick is 9-1 as a pitcher, and Boyd is 5-2 with a .375 batting average, 31 runs scored and 25 RBI. Gergely is hitting .455 with 23 runs and 23 RBI, Eyre is hitting .400, and Glasser is hitting .398 with 37 runs and 20 RBI.

Tallmadge coach Kenny Linn says: “We have really played good baseball pretty much week in and week out, and the guys have continued to grow together closer and closer as these games have gotten tougher and tougher. … We have had to execute, get timely hits, play good defense and get great pitching from Zach Boyd and Jared Burick, and Mikah McGlaughlin in relief of those guys. We are excited about where we are at.”

Lakota West vs. Jackson

Lakota West at a glance: Lakota West won a state title in 2007 and reached the state semifinals in 2008. Senior Jake Kates and sophomore Max Kiker are the Firebirds’ top pitchers with a combined record of 14-2. Kates is a High Point recruit. Bryce Johnson, Brennen Martin and Dominic Schivone are all hitting over .300. Chase Wullenweber, Frankie Schmitt, Michael Medley, A.J. Petersen and Eric Hooper also start for Lakota West. Schivone and Hooper are Heidelberg recruits.

Lakota West coach Greg Leurck says: “Our regular season gets us ready for the tournament because our conference [the Greater Miami Conference] is very strong. … Jackson has a very good pitcher in Kyle Nicolas. I have read some reports on him that he has a good fastball, upper 80s to 90 and tops out at 92 from what I hear. He has signed with Ball State and has a good pitching frame. I saw him play first base on Saturday and you can tell he is an athlete. And also the catcher, Dillon Dingler, an Ohio State recruit, is one of the best catchers I have seen in high school ball in 19 years of coaching. He has good energy back there, blocks balls, receives well and he is a good hitter and runner.”

Jackson at a glance: Jackson won a state title in 2014 and was also a state semifinalist in 1947. Nicolas is 7-0 as a pitcher and has a .346 batting average. Sophomore Yianni Skeriotis is 8-0. Dingler is hitting .433 with 35 runs and 27 RBI. Senior twin brothers and Malone recruits Cade and Jake Mottice are each batting around .390 with a combined 56 runs and 33 RBI. Ben Warren, Josh Romans, Trey Wright, Nick Harrison, Davis Graham, Jack Dear and Stone King also play regularly for the Polar Bears.

Jackson coach Bill Gamble says: “After graduating 12 seniors from last year, 10 that went on to play college ball, we had high expectations because we knew we were returning solid players up the middle who can play in Kyle Nicolas and Dillon Dingler, but we had a lot of people we had to fill in. … I am very proud of this senior group and handling the expectations. This is a very athletic group where guys have taken on some serious roles like Cade and Jake Mottice, the twins that are going to Malone. The guys that are getting a lot of the press and should are Kyle Nicolas and Dillon Dingler. Those guys have been staples in our basketball program that just won a Division I state title, and Dillon is a really good football player.”

Megan Hissong scored four goals and junior Mackenzie Lewis and freshman Katie Clark each added three for the Warriors (14-9) in a Division II state semifinal loss Tuesday to the Braves (21-1) in Westerville.

The No. 16-seeded Warriors trailed 9-7 at halftime and traded goals with the top-seeded Braves throughout the second half before the Braves scored the game-winner with four minutes remaining.

“We fought really hard and came up short in the end,” Walsh Jesuit coach Julie Hudec said. “We’re graduating just four seniors and we’ll be back next year.”
