COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Crestview football team (5-1) will hit the road on Saturday for a Division V Regional Quarterfinal matchup with (7-0) Garrettsville Garfield.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Garrettsville High School.

“We have great team speed and we have to utilize that,” said Paul Cusick, Crestview head coach. “I think our kids are playing at a good speed, at a good pace right now and they’re preparing very well.”

The Rebels have rolled off five straight wins after their Week 1 loss to Champion. Crestview has averaged 40 points per game in those five wins.

“Fast, fast, fast, we have to play fast for sure,” said Ethan Powell, senior running back. “I don’t think they will be able to keep up with our speed for sure.”
