Hounds Are Top Dog on Friday Night








In an exciting game that came down to the last seconds, Dixie came from behind to overcome the Milton Union Bulldogs and walk off the field top dogs on senior night. In the 1st half Dixie struggled to establish a running game and had turnovers. Milton Union was able to enter the locker room at halftime with a 14-6 lead.

 The second half began as a flag fest, the two teams amassed more yardage in penalties than they did on offense.  But the Dixie passing offense established itself and Dixie kept pace with the Bulldogs. At one point, they were down by 2 scores but managed to go ahead on 4th and 6 when Devin Worley threw a pass to Dakota Grice for a 72 yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the game.

But that lead didn’t last a minute as Milton Union scored quickly and were back on top. It was time for the 2 minute drill. The go ahead score was set up by a Seth Grubb catch to the 13 yard line. Devin Worley scrambled on a passing play and ran the 13 yards to score and put Dixie up for good with 15 seconds left on the clock. Milton Union tried for a hail mary with 2.8 seconds left in the game but the Hounds defended well and time ran out for a 38-35 victory.

 Scoring for Dixie: AJ Shockey 40 yard pass from Worley; Worley 1 yd td run, Worley 35 yd TD run, Dakota Grice 32 yd pass; Grice 82 yard pass; Worley 13 yd td run.

Dixie now has a 5-4 record as they go visit Carlisle next week. Dixie is not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but a lot would have to go their way to catapult themselves into the top 8. On the other hand, they have guaranteed for themselves at least a .500 record and if they defeat Carlisle then they would have a winning record and also knock Carlisle out of any chance of making the post season.

Arcanum Advances








Arcanum won a rematch against the Dixie Greyhounds in the opening round the state volleyball tournament in Brookville. They won the first match about a week ago and although they repeated their 3 set win – it was a little harder to pull out that 3rd set win this time around.  The scoring was 25-10, 25-13, 25-22.
