Arcanum Runs Over South














A winless Trojan football team manhandled the Twin Valley South Panthers who entered the game at 2-2. The Trojans opened the season with 4 tough teams on their schedule. They were competitive in most of these game, but just came up short. But they mauled the Panthers with a smothering defense and a running attack that seemed to get stronger as the game went on. Daniel Coats and Brandon Kinney had big nights for the Trojans, but coach Stephan let it be know that the running game starts with the line and they had a big night too. The backs can't get to the 2nd level of the defense unless the line clears the 1st level. It was a close game in the first quarter with Arcanum up just 7-0. But they would end up running away with the game 33-3.

Tigers Lose Momentum in Second Half and Lose to South












Games have an ebb and flow to them at times. Momentum shifts back and forth and when momentum is on your side you have to grasp it and keep it. Something that can be hard for a young team like Ansonia to do. They fell behind by 2 scores early in the game, but were able dominate the 2nd quarter and enter the locker room with momentum – only down by 3 points. But Ansonia squandered their opportunity and an experienced South team took advantage in the 3rd quarter, opening a lead that they would not relinquish.

Trojans Fend Off Late Surge by North










The Arcanum JV won their match against North in straight sets. And at first this momentum seemed to carry forward to the Varsity match as Arcanum simply shredded North 25-9 in the first set. But from there North seemed to get stronger and Arcanum had to reach deep to get the next 2 wins. They won the match in 3 sets but it was not easy.   


OSU Over Confident Against Tulsa?

After winning handily against Bowling Green, the Buckeyes might have been a tad overconfident in their game against Tulsa.  The offense definitely looked out of sorts.  No push from the line and although there was a stiff wind in their face in the 1st quarter, the passing game was out of sorts as well.  Tulsa held their own in the first quarter. It was 3-3 at that point.  But things took a turn for the worse in the second quarter.

The Buckeye defense came to life and scored off of interceptions.  And actually that first field goal was set up by an interception.  So it was almost like the Buckeyes didn't need their offense anyway - the defense was doing it all.  But as the teams entered the second half a storm caused a delay with the game. Some of us had poncho's but almost everyone went under the stands to escape the monsoon like deluge.

During this delay the Buckeyes made whatever adjustments and butt chewings that needed to be done.  Whatever the cause, the offense came to life when play resumed.  The passing game was on again, and the running backs made yardage.  It was a relief to see the team back in sync despite the rainy conditions in the second half.  The final was 48-3.

The Buckeyes can't afford to get off to a slow start like this next week against Oklahoma.  They need to be focused from the opening whistle.   So maybe it was good to have this game as a wake up call to remind the Buckeyes that they can't afford to relax.

South Soccer Over North 5-1

TVS defeated their rival North 5-1.  TVS keeper Zach Guehring had 21 saves on the night.  Freshman Aaron Clark scored the first goal off an assist from Bryant Marker.  Bryant Marker then scored the next goal off an assist from Daniel Page.  Bryant then scored 2 more goals to complete a hat trick. Both goals were assisted by Travis Lovely. The final goal was scored by Jacob Wells off an assist from Aaron Clark.  TVS will next travel to Stivers tomorrow

Coach Young, "We started off a little slow early in the first half.  I wanted us to keep attacking to try to tire out their team since they only had 1 sub.  I thought our whole team had a good performance.  The thing I like about our team is that we are unselfish and have many players who can put the ball in the back of the net.  I thought we had a couple breakdowns defensively and need to limit the amount of shots for the opposition.  Overall it was a good league win and three points towards league.  So we will continue to try to get better and make improvements where we need to do so."
