Week 11- #3 Colerain vs. #6 Elder
Final Score: Colerain 38 Elder 3
By Tom Groeschen Cincinnati Enquirer

Colerain football coach Kerry Coombs paced the field nervously before Saturday night's playoff showdown with Elder, admitting to having some butterflies. 

Halftime was another antacid test, with Colerain ahead only 10-3.

As it turned out, Coombs need not be worried. 

The Cardinals, ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press state poll and seeded third in the playoffs, crushed two-time defending Division 1 State Champion and sixth seeded Elder 38-3 in a playoff opener at Colerain, in a game that was tight for about 2 1/2 quarters. 

A sellout home crowd of about 10,000 watched Colerain empathetically halt it's three-year playoff losing streak to Elder, which included a bitter 24-23 defeat in the 2003 regional finals.
