The Darby boys team lost to Gahanna 3-2 on Oct. 10 to drop to 4-12 overall and end its regular season on a threegame losing streak. Midfielder Brian Lee had two goals against Bradley. Seeded 24th, the Panthers opened
Senior leadership has played a key role in the Hilliard Bradley High School girls volleyball team winning its second league title in three seasons and earning the program’s highest postseason seed. The Jaguars finished 12-2 in the OCC-Cardinal Division to tie Westerville Central for the league championship ahead of third-place Dublin Scioto (11-3). They won the OCCCapital title two years ago. “This is the second OCC championship for our senior class, who also won as sophomores,” coach RyAnne Ufferman said. “Their leadership has been essential to our success.” Bradley, which finished the regular season 18-4 overall, is seeded third in the Division I district tournament and played 43rd-seeded Walnut Ridge in the first round Oct. 15. The winner plays host to 45th-seeded Dublin Jerome in the second round Thursday, Oct. 17. The Jaguars swept the Celtics in league play, winning 25-11, 25-13, 25-3 on Aug. 27 and 25-11, 25-12, 25-14 on Sept. 19. “We know that tournament time is a brand new season and we need to enter every game with fire and consistency,” Ufferman said. “We’re taking every game one step at a time.” The second-round winner will face 15th-seeded Gahanna, 16th-seeded Thomas Worthington or 25th-seeded Olentangy Orange in a district semifinal Oct. 24 at Whitehall. The district final is Oct. 26 at

Bradley boys win first OCC title
By AARON BLANKENSHIP THISWEEKSPORTS.COM
The Hilliard Bradley High School boys soccer team rallied from a 2-0 halftime deficit to beat Hilliard Darby 5-3 on Oct. 8 to capture its first league title. Midfielder Jeff Ireland had three goals, including the game-winner, and midfielder Tyler Dillow scored two for the Jaguars, who improved to 9-1-6 overall and finished atop the OCC-Cardinal Division at 5-0-2. Canal Winchester (5-1-1) was second, followed by Westerville South (30-4), Westerville Central (3-1-3), Dublin Scioto (2-4-1), Dublin Jerome (1-3-3),
Darby (1-6) and Westerville North (16). The victory over Darby also gave Bradley a share of the Hilliard Cup with Davidson. The Jaguars and Wildcats played to a 1-all tie on Sept. 19 and Davidson defeated the Panthers 10 on Sept. 5. “This is one of the greatest moments I’ve had as a coach and winning the OCC and Hilliard Cup on the same day means a lot to our players, too,” coach Pat Billman said. “This was a boxing match and Darby came out and hit us in the mouth with two goals right away, but our kids answered the bell and won this game in the second half.”
Seeded fourth of 45 teams in the Division I district tournament, Bradley had a first-round bye and will play host to 18th-seeded Scioto or 40th-seeded Whetstone in the second round Saturday, Oct. 19. The Jaguars defeated Scioto 3-2 on Oct. 1. The second-round winner will face 13th-seeded Upper Arlington, 17thseeded Jerome or 35th-seeded Walnut Ridge in a district semifinal Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the site of the higher seed. Bradley defeated UA 3-1 on Oct. 3 and beat Jerome 8-2 on Aug. 27. “Our draw is very difficult and every
game is going to be a dogfight,” Billman said. “We need to play together and stay unselfish because we’re tough to beat when we play that way.”

Davidson to test Liberty’s run defense By SCOTT GERFEN THISWEEKSPORTS.COM
The Olentangy Liberty High School football team has proven that its defense can be stingy against the run. The Patriots held Upper Arlington, which has Michigan State recruit Chris Frey among its running backs, to 81 yards on 38 carries in their 16-8 win Sept. 27. The challenge will be even bigger Friday, Oct. 18, when they travel to Hilliard Davidson for an OCC-Central Division game. The Wildcats, who were ranked seventh in the Division I state poll last week and improved to 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the OCC-Central with a 21-0 win over UA on Oct. 11, have one of the area’s most potent option attacks. “We know what they’re good at and they have (a) great (blocking) technique,” Patriots two-way lineman and University of Cincinnati recruit Luke Callahan said. “They also like to throw the swing pass. We know this game is definitely important to us from the
standpoint of the league standings and computer points (in the region standings).” Liberty, which is in Division I, Region I, improved to 4-3 and 3-1 with a 66-0 win over Westland on Oct. 11. The Patriots scored 36 points in the first quarter against the Cougars and finished with 312 yards rushing on 40 carries. Running back Daryian Davies led the way with 76 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries. Running back Nick Durtschi added 49 yards and two touchdowns on six carries and caught an 18-yard touchdown pass. Davies (650 yards, 130 carries, 11 TDs) and Durtschi (438 yards, 58 carries, 5 TDs) are the top rushers for Liberty. Durtschi also has 21 receptions for 341 yards and four touchdowns, and senior quarterback Matt Kessler has thrown for 1,274 yards and 10 touchdowns with seven interceptions. “Olentangy Liberty beat Upper Arlington by a similar score,” David-

Darby focuses on task at hand By SCOTT GERFEN THISWEEKSPORTS.COM
The Hilliard Darby High School football team controls its own fate in the race for the OCC-Cardinal Division championship, but according to coach John Santagata, that doesn’t make the task any easier. The Panthers defeated Westerville South 52-17 on Oct. 11 to improve to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the OCC-Cardinal and are riding a five-game winning streak. Their final three opponents have a combined record of 15-6. Darby travels to Dublin Scioto on Friday, Oct. 18, before facing Westerville Central on Oct. 25 and Hilliard Bradley on Nov. 1. The Warhawks are 4-0 in
league play and the Irish and Jaguars are both 3-1. “We’re in the middle of a gauntlet right now, so it’s important that we remain focused for Dublin Scioto,” Santagata said. “Dublin Scioto looks like another solid team, and we’re getting used to playing good teams week in and week out in our league.” Scioto defeated Dublin Jerome 42-20 on Oct. 10 to improve to 5-2 overall and extend its winning streak to three games. The Irish, whose league loss came against Central (41-38 on Sept. 20), are averaging 33.1 points. “It’s a big game from the standpoint of computer points (for Division II, Region 5) and league standings,” Scioto coach Karl Johnson said. “The winner of this
game puts themselves in position for second place, but we’d love to get a win and see Westerville Central knock them off.” Scioto jumped out to a 21-0 lead against Jerome, as running back Nick Conner scored on runs of 4 and 1 yards. He also scored from his linebacker position, returning an interception 25 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Nathan Densel enters the matchup with Darby with 1,382 yards passing, 315 yards rushing and a total of 13 touchdowns. His top receivers are Darius McDonald (36 catches, 351 yards, 3 TDs) and Dan Carney (17 catches, 268 yards). McDonald also has 297 yards rushing

With the Hilliard Bradley High School football team likely needing to win out and get some help to make its first playoff appearance, coach Mike LoParo hasn’t shied away from discussing the postseason with his players. The Jaguars, who defeated Canal Winchester 49-7 on Oct. 11 and have won four of their past five games, are 4-3 overall and 3-1 in the OCC-Cardinal Division heading into a matchup Friday, Oct. 18, at Westerville North. “We talk a lot about it, actually,” LoParo said, referring to the playoffs. “A lot of it has to do with the fact that we’re such a young school (having opened in 2009). We’ve been sort of thrown to the wolves being in a tough region (Division II, Region 5) and a tough conference. The playoffs are the next step for our program to take.” Bradley was expected to be 15th in the Region 5 computer ratings when the OHSAA released them Oct. 15. The top eight teams in the region make the playoffs. LoParo believes Bradley needs to play at the level it did when it posted consecutive shutouts against Olentangy Orange (44-0 on Sept. 13) and Dublin Jerome (20-0 on Sept. 20) if it is to make a serious push toward the playoffs. The Jaguars have averaged 39.2 points in their last five games, but they allowed a com-

The Affordable Care Act – Open enrollment began Oct. 1,
An exchange, as created under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is a place where consumers can purchase subsidized health insurance coverage. Each state will have an exchange, operated by either the federal government or by the state. Each state’s exchange must begin offering coverage January 1, 2014 and will begin accepting enrollment October 1, 2013. Consumers applying that qualify for Medicaid will be referred to the state’s Medicaid program. Qualiﬁed individuals include U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are not incarcerated, and who do not have access to affordable employer coverage or other public coverage. While anyone can purchase, only certain individuals have access to federal subsidies. The ACA also provides separate Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) exchanges for small businesses (fewer than 50 employees) to obtain health coverage for their employees. It is important to note
that this coverage is not subsidized. Everyone must have some type of health insurance, known as the individual mandate. There are a few exceptions, several groups are exempt from the requirement and the penalty. Every plan participating in the exchange must be certiﬁed as a Qualiﬁed Health Plan (QHP). To receive the QHP certiﬁcation, the plan must offer at least a uniform beneﬁts package, called Essential Health Beneﬁts (EHB), be licensed by the state and have a sufﬁcient network. Each exchange will offer four levels of coverage. While the scope of beneﬁts will be the same among the plans, the value of those beneﬁts will vary by actuarial value across the bronze, silver, gold and platinum levels. • Bronze: beneﬁts equivalent to 60% of the full actuarial value of plan beneﬁts, • Silver: beneﬁts actuarially equivalent to 70% of full value,
• Gold: beneﬁts actuarially equivalent to 80% of full value, and • Platinum: beneﬁts actuarially equivalent to 90% of full value. Each plan offered on the exchange must consist of at least the following: ambulatory patient services, emergency services, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care, mental health beneﬁts and substance use disorder services, prescription drugs, rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices, laboratory services, preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management, and pediatric services including oral and vision care. It is important to note that all new plans sold in the individual and small group market must contain EHBs.

Bradley ends season at district tournament
Highﬁeld MRI Brings New Open MRI Magnet to Hilliard.
By JARROD ULREY THISWEEKSPORTS.COM A year after placing eighth at the Division I district tournament, the Hilliard Bradley girls golf team improved to seventh as it shot 387 on Oct. 8 at the Links at Groveport. Dublin Coffman shot a 300 to win their second consecutive district title as two-time defending state champion Dublin Jerome (308) earned the other state-qualifying berth. Advancing as individuals to state Friday, Oct. 18, and Saturday, Oct. 19, at Ohio State’s Gray Course were Watterson junior Erin Harper, who carded a 72, and Gahanna junior Emily Hughes, who shot 78. Senior Alyssa Parkin led the Jaguars with a 92, followed by juniors Zoe Banaag (93) and Caitlin Silva (94), senior Brooke Boring (108) and junior Ashley Bisciotti (109). The Jaguars tied Westerville Central for fourth (18-14) in the OCC-Capital behind champion Coffman (32-0). “It’s an accomplishment to be considered one of the nine or 10 top teams in the Central District with the talent that’s out there,” coach Doug Grieble said. “We’ll have three that are returning (after competing at district) and a couple other juniors coming back.” Davidson’s season ended with a fifth-place finish (388) in the Oakhaven sectional Oct. 1 behind champion Jerome (299). Katie Lease, who led the Wildcats with a 92 at sectional and was a two-time district qualifier, was joined in the senior class by Megan Ries. Davidson finished fifth (1513) in the OCC-Ohio behind champion Pickerington North (28-0). Eligible to return are junior Sydney Weadock and
