Week 5 Power Rankings: TVC-Ohio< < Back to
1.) Meigs Marauders 4-1 (2-0) | Last Rank: 2 | Next Opponent: Vs. Nelsonville-York
The Marauders earned their spot at the top of the TVC-Ohio by beating River Valley in a come-from-behind victory.
2.) Alexander Spartans 4-1 (2-0) | Last Rank: 3 | Next Opponent: @ Vinton County
Defense is the priority for Alexander and for the second consecutive week, the Spartans contained a previously explosive offense. Wellston had been averaging 36.5 prior to its match-up against Alexander when it was held to just 20 points.
3.) River Valley Raiders 4-1 (1-1) | Last Rank: 1 | Next Opponent: @ Wellston
Turnovers proved to be costly against Meigs, but a closely contested game proved the Raiders aren’t a fluke.
4.) Athens Bulldogs 2-3 (1-1) | Last Rank: 4 | Next Opponent: @ Gallia Academy
Player of the week Zacciah Saltzman rushed for seven touchdowns in the first half of Athens’s 48-13 rout of Vinton County. The junior varsity squad took over in the second half.
5.) Nelsonville-York Buckeyes 1-4 (0-1) | Last Rank: 5 | Next Opponent: @ Meigs
After a turbulent week off the field combined with a game against a probable playoff team in Logan, Nelsonville-York will look to move on. However, Nelsonville-York’s 28 points on Friday stands as a season high.
6.) Wellston Rockets (3-2) (0-1) | Last Rank: 5 | Next Opponent: Vs. River Valley
Wellston’s 20 points against Alexander is tied for its lowest point total of the season.
7.) Vinton County Vikings 0-5 (0-2) | Last Rank: 7 | Next Opponent: @ Alexander
A clash with Alexander’s defense will do Vinton County’s struggling offense no favors.
