Walsh Tries To Keep Momentum Going in 21st Meeting With Malone

(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) - Walsh and Malone will meet for the 21st time as the Cavaliers try to keep the momentum going from last week's thrilling double-overtime win against Findlay. The Cavs (1-5, 1-5) hold a 14-6 advantage over the Pioneers (0-6, 0-6) in the battle for the John Bankert-Dick Gallagher Memorial Trophy.

Last season, Walsh used a 21-point second quarter to route Malone 35-13. It was the sixth-straight victory over the rivals from the south.

Despite what the records show, both teams have played the opposition close throughout the season. All three games Walsh has played at home this season have gone to overtime. This includes a narrow 31-24 loss to the now-nationally ranked Ashland Eagles. The Pioneers also took the current No. 12 team in the nation Michigan Tech to the wire before they lost 28-27 in Houghton, Mich., earlier this season.
