Coming off a second consecutive Division II district semifinal finish and with little experience returning, the Watterson High School boys basketball team began the season aware of the obstacles that lie ahead.
In what was his next-to-last game coaching Upper Arlington, first-year Watterson High School hockey coach Jay Graham's fourth-seeded Golden Bears upset top-seeded St. Charles 7-6 in a district semifinal last season.
As was the case during its regular-season contest with Olentangy Liberty, the Watterson High School field hockey team created more than its share of scoring opportunities in its postseason matchup with the Patriots.
The City League hasn't held a championship game among the winners of the City-North and City-South divisions since 1998, but the equivalent of such will be staged at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, when the Beechcroft and Eastmoor Academy high school football teams meet in a Division III, Region 11 playoff game.
When the Northland High School football team plays host to Beechcroft on Friday, Oct. 28, it will mark the third consecutive season that at least a share of the City League-North Division championship will be on the line in their matchup.
