Three area prep football teams will be playing regional semifinal games tonight and we’ll have the latest on all the action tonight here at The Courier.

A little closer to home, Ottawa-Glandorf will be playing at Donnell Stadium for the second straight week as the Titans play Genoa in a Division IV Region 14 battle of 11-0 teams.
The Courier’s Dave Hanneman will cover the contest which will be broadcast live on 106.3 The Fox and streamed on 1063thefox.com with Doug Jenkins calling the game.
Finally, Brian Lester will be in Lima for tonight’s Division VI Region 24 semifinal game between Ada and St. Henry.
