Clyde prepares for the Tornadoes

They met in the preseason.

They'll meet in the opener of the 2011 season.

And Clyde and Tiffin Columbian will met at 7 p.m. Saturday in Fremont.

The Fliers, fresh off Saturday's first-round 21-6 playoff win against Shelby, face a Northern Ohio League opponent for the second straight week and the third time this season -- they played Bellevue in Week 3 -- at Don Paul Stadium for the right to play in the regional championship.

This isn't the first time Clyde coach Marc Gibson has coached against the Tornadoes when it counted; The teams met in Week 2 of 2005, Gibson's first year, and Clyde won, 7-0.

"They're good. But everybody's going to be good (at this point in the season)," Gibson said Tuesday.

"There's a lot of speed on defense, and they've really bought into coach (Brian) Colatruglio's offensive philosophy."

The Tornadoes have solid playmakers at the quarterback, running back and receiver positions, and Gibson said that makes them a very good, sound overall team that has improved since the two scrimmaged.
