South Fighting Early Injuries

South went into todays scrimmage with Bethel with around a half-dozen sidelined players.  So young players had to step up and make plays at the varsity level. Bethel took control of the scrimmage early when the teams ran 10 plays apiece.  South had problems giving up big plays to the Bees on defense.  Bethel ran a double wing offense with the triple option.  But they also passed well out of this formation. They did some no huddle and scored 3 times before South managed to punch one in themselves.

South ran a pro set, with 2 backs in the backfield.  Their first few possessions they had problems getting the offense into a flow.  But they finally put together a nice drive and mixed both the run and the pass to score.  South did seem to get better as the scrimmage went on.  Being a young team, it probably took a few series just to get things figured out. When the teams changed up later in the day and ran plays using down and distance, South held their own.  Bethel scored twice and TVS scored twice.  Still overall Bethel outscored South in this scrimmage 6 scores to 3.

Coach Bartlett discussed the team after the scrimmage, "We had a lot of young kids that went out there and learned today. We saw some good things from the kids and at this point in the season, we saw some things we need to work on.  Everything we saw today was correctable. The kids played hard, and some things you can't coach - the boys gave all their effort.  We just have to get rid of those mental mistakes."

He admitted that they have to deal with injuries, "We got bitten by the injury bug early this year. But this is football and guys are going to get injured.  You have to have guys ready to step up. We had some young guys step up today and get their first varsity experience. They are going to grow and they are going to learn."

Next up was discussion about this years personnel, "We have some experienced guys coming back from last year.  Ryan Bassler and Austin Eaton are expected to do a lot for us and provide leadership. We have some strong kids like John Gray on the line back this year, and Wendel Webb.  Of course some younger guys are stepping up.   Josh Wysong is having an impact.  We have the keys; we have the pieces, we just have to figure out this puzzle and get it all together by opening day."

Next week South will scrimmage at Madison in a jamboree game at 7pm on Friday.  They open the regular season Friday, Aug. 25th at home against Dixie.

    Jets Squeeze Out Win Over South

    The Franklin Monroe Jets fastpitch had their hands full in the opening round of the state tournament.  Twin Valley South had hung tough in a loss to the Jets earlier in the season, and this night was the same. To borrow a phrase from coach Mike Morris who frequently tells his pitcher to “squeeze ‘em out” when she has 2 strikes on the batter - the Jets had to squeeze out a win against the Panthers. The game was closely contested until the last out.  The Jets scored the go ahead run when Taylor Armstrong crossed the plate on a Chloe Peters sacrifice in the bottom of the 6th inning.  Peters was awarded the game ball afterwards. This broke up a 1-1 tie and after the Jets retired the Panthers in order in the top of the 7th it meant a 2-1 victory.

    Strong Second Half puts Trojans Over North

    The Arcanum Trojans showed no mercy to host Tri-County North on their senior night. The two teams played fairly evenly in the first half. But in the second half, a decent lead turned into a rout as the Arcanum defense grew stronger, keeping North from scoring and on offense the shooters found their range and the shots kept dropping for the visitors. North changed up defenses and made line up changes, but it was to no avail as Arcanum grew their lead to double digits and had a happy drive home with a 68-52 win.

    Roaders Rumble With Panthers

    Both Bradford and North have struggled this season, but both teams laid it on the line on Friday night. They still have a chance to move up in the league standings – and both teams are playing for pride. Fans were treated to a game with several lead changes and ties as the two teams battled on the hardwood. The teams had contrasting offensive styles where North seemed determined to drive the ball into the teeth of Bradford defense, while Bradford got the most traction with the 3 point shot – nailing an impressive 10 treys on the night.

    It was a tight game with several lead changes and several ties.  North hit a trey late that gave them a little distance.  And when Bradford tried to foul, North did well from the line.  It was a 59-49 North victory. 

    Scoring for Bradford: Smith 21, Millhouse 7, Swagg 14, Branson 5, Phillips 2. Branson was the glass cleaner for the night with 7 rebounds. Swabb lead the team with 5 assists, Smith lead the team with 4 steals.
    Scoring for TCN: Edgin 15, Stinson 15, Lairson 4, Lewis 3, Fry 3, Brinson 14, Parsons 3, Heindl 2.

    Railroaders Slow Start Dooms Them Against South

    Bradford got off to a sluggish start against the Twin Valley South Panthers. But the other 3 quarters they played even with the Panthers. But that cold start gave the Panthers an early lead and the RailRoaders had to play catchup the rest of the night. Still they got a hot hand later in the game and made a good run at the Panthers. But out of the gate, they missed 4 free throws and until late in the quarter they could not hit a shot from outside. The Panthers capitalized with a 17-9 lead at the end of one.  Bradford made a solid run at the end of the 3rd quarter and had the deficit down to 2 points late in the quarter.  But South fended off the Railroader charge for 62-54 win.

    Scoring for Bradford: Smith 12, Millhouse 14, Swabb 8, Branson 8, Phillips 12.
    Scoring for TVS: Marker 1, Bassler 5, Wells 8, Bowman 20, Meyers 5, Cottingim 8, Lovely 15.
