Hounds Outrun Polar Bears

If you wanted to see a lot of offense then Dixie high school is where you wanted to be as the Hounds out ran the Polar Bears 64-43 for a homecoming win. Dixie's first drive fizzled out, but they scored fast and furiously after they got on track. Devin Worley connected with AJ Shockey for several scores, Dakota Grice scored. On defense Shockey also had a fumble recovery, as did Will Clouse. Seth Stephans and Roland Howland had sacks. Dixie did pass some but used their big offensive line to pound the ball - particularly in the 2nd half. Northridge utilized the long ball and made big plays to set up their scores, but when the night was done Dixie had out gunned them for the win.

Seton Prevails Over Panthers

Twin Valley South lost 1-0 to Seton Catholic Monday night, despite controlling the game the entire match. TVS made one mistake and got beat on a throw in that the defenders misjudged and that was the difference in the game. South had 31 shots in the game compared to Setons 5 which was all in the first half.  South probably controlled time of possession 75% to 25%.

 Coach Young commented, "Seton bunkered down and we couldn't put one in on their small field. I feel as if we would have had a lot more success on a normal size field, but it is what it is. We just got to take it and move on."

 He continued, "They are a good team though, and it gives us confidence moving forward that we played so well against a solid team that won a sectional title last season and already has 10 wins this season. This will be good for us moving forward with our remaining schedule. It doesn't get any easier for us but when we play as a unit we can play with almost anyone."

South Over Dixie

Twin Valley South beat Dixie 2-1 Saturday morning.  Brayden Marker scored off a header from a throw in early in the second half assisted by Travis Lovely.  Dixie tied the game off a throw in.  Jacob Wells then hit a rocket upper 90 to put the Panthers ahead and become South's all time leading scorer passing Jacob Cottongim. His goal was assisted by Brayden Marker.

Coach Young:
"It was a good win today.  It was really hot and it's always a tough game against Dixie.  Their coach has them playing really good futbol right now.  I thought we knocked the ball around well today and controlled possession very well today.  We slightly altered our formation at half time to put a little more pressure on their defense and it ended up paying off. " 

The Defense:
"Our defense played really well today.  Jacob Denlinger came up with a couple key saves.  Ian Kurtz played a great game at sweeper and made a huge hustle play late to preserve the lead.  Chris Kenner, Jimmy Mullins, and Logan Cook keep making it tough on Dixie to get any solid attacks."

Looking Forward:
"We felt this was a must win game today.  Our goal coming into the season was to be at least a 10 win team.  Our last four games are against opponents who all rank in the top ten in the Miami Valley so it's not going to be easy.  Our boys have started to possess the ball a lot better though.  I think we have started to become more physical.  I've seen a lot of positives coming out of our last two matches."

BlackHawks Downed by Panthers

The BlackHawks actually had a halftime lead and seemed to have the upper hand although with a score more befitting a baseball game, 6-2.  The defenses of both teams kept a lid on scoring with just one touchdown allowed in the 1st half.  South has twice scored more than 40 points this season, so throttling their offense was no trivial feat.  But in the 2nd half the defense bent and finally broke – allowing South to score. And the offense kept tripping up at the wrong times – penalties and missed opportunities stopped several drives.  South was able to find the endzone finally in the second half and would score 2 TD’s plus another safety to win 18-6.
