Canfield seeks 1st trip to Final 4 since 2005

Sports

Canfield gets their chance at redemption this Friday as they look to advance to the Division 3 Final Four for the second time in school history. Just last year, the Cardinals lost a heart breaker to Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary in the Regional Final.

Canfield and Kenston finished the season as Division 3’s #3 and #4 ranked team in the final AP poll.

The one common opponent that the teams faced this year was Chardon. The Hilltoppers got the best of Kenston – 27-24 – in week four. Six weeks earlier, Chardon was handed a 35-13 setback at the hands of Canfield.
