Arrows Fall Short Against Tigers


Preble Shawnee's improbable tournament run came to an end in the regional finals against the Versailles Tigers at Trotwood Madison this past Saturday. Shawnee has a decent sized line and matched up well against other teams this fall, but the Tigers sported linemen a size larger. The senior laden team was able to dominate the line of scrimmage throughout the game. The Tigers would end up regional champs 28-0, ending Shawnee's winning streak at 13.

It was a good night for small school football in Ohio. The air was cool and crisp and both stands were filled to capacity with rabid fans rooting for their hometown team. As each teams fortunes rose and fell, you could tell what was happening by which stands were louder. There was definitely a playoff atmosphere in the stadium.

Versailles scored on their first offensive drive of the night. The Arrows then had 2 chances to score and answer in the first half. The first drive was stopped inside the 20 yard line of Versailles when a muffed hand off fell to the ground and Versailles recovered the ball. The second drive went to the 22 yard line of Versailles, but an interception stopped this drive. Versailles then drove the length of the field to score themselves and go up 14-0 at halftime.

In the 2nd half Shawnee had a tough time establishing a consistent offense. And defensively they took to blitzing linebackers to try and stop the running game of the Tigers. This was high risk and high reward. They did make some tackles behind the line of scrimmage. But if a runner broke through the line, he was able to ramble and gain good yardage before the secondary brought him down. The Tigers were able to score 2 more times once on the ground and once by air to provide the final margin of victory.

Shawnee Coach Dave Maddox, “They got the momentum and took off with it – we couldn't catch up. The turnovers didn't help, but we couldn't match up physically with them. They were big and powerful up front. That's where a game is won – in the trenches. It doesn't matter who you have carrying the ball when you have big ole horses like that up front. Hats off to them – that is a good football team.”

Still it was a season of firsts for the young Arrows. First conference football championship for the program ever, and the first ever in the new Western Ohio Athletic Conference. Most wins in a season for the program as well. No other Preble county school has accumulated 13 wins in a row in a single season. So this young team has put Preble Shawnee football on the map.

“We hate to lose, but we count this season as a success. We had a lot of firsts. We won more games than any other Shawnee team in history. First time winning a conference title. First time making a qualified playoff. First time winning a playoff game. We have nothing to hang our heads about.”

At the beginning of the season, no one would have projected that the Arrows would go this deep into the playoffs. A young team in a new league – even though they won out, they had not been tested by any division 5 teams during the regular season. But as the level of competition increased in the playoffs, the Arrows rose their level of play. It was a good run and with this team only losing 3 players to graduation Shawnee players and fans should be looking forward to next years season.

Lastly coach Maddox was asked about the seniors, “We only had 3 seniors and they had like 18. That was a big difference. But we will miss our seniors, they worked their butts off. They helped us achieve everything that we were able to accomplish.”

Shawnee Wins a Thriller Over Roger Bacon


Preble Shawnee continues its march in the state playoffs with a quality win over a perennial powerhouse – number 2 seeded Roger Bacon. The Roger Bacon Spartans are the defending Regional Champs of 2020, but they will be in the stands this year as the Arrows won in come from behind fashion 35-28. With the win this will advance them to the Regional finals against Versailles.

Uncharacteristically for the Arrows, they turned over the ball 4 times on the night. They gave up 2 interceptions and 2 fumbles. You don't want to give gifts to a quality team and that is what Shawnee was doing. They also had a knack for giving up big plays to the Spartans. That combination had Preble Shawnee looking at a 21-6 deficit at one point in the first half. The team was slow to get started.

Coach Dave Maddox, “We overcame adversity in the 1st half. That wasn't who we are. Once we got over the shock of playing on this field and a physical team like that we settled in. We have not faced a...

Arrows Tame Wildcats


The Preble Shawnee Arrows thumped the Williamsburg Wildcats for an overwhelming 62-7 victory in the 2nd round of the state playoffs. After last weeks close game, folks were expecting another dog fight at Shawnee high school. But the Arrows seemed to find another gear last Saturday night and dominated on offense, defense, and special teams – the Arrows surpassed the Wildcats in each facet of the game. The Arrows appear to be peaking at the right time – in the heart of the playoffs.

In the 1st quarter the 2 teams sparred to get a feel for the other and each team was able to score. Each team had a possession with no score initially. Then it was the Wildcats who struck 1st with an 81 yard....

Tigers Defense Can't Stop Arrows


The DVII Ansonia Tigers gave DV Preble Shawnee Arrows all that they could handle this past Friday night. The Tiger offense rang up 34 points on the league leading Arrows – the most allowed by the undefeated team this season. On any other night 34 points would be enough for a win in the W.O.A.C. But so far this season no one has figured out how to stop the potent offense of Preble Shawnee. The Arrows outpaced Ansonia 48-34.

Coach Macy: “We had been struggling on offense most of the year. So it was nice come out and score like this. But this is the type of team we are going to run into during the playoffs. So this is a good measuring stick for us if we want to make any noise in the post season.”

The Arrows feature Hunter Crocket at running back – a big rambling back who can accelerate. But when you try to pack the box, quarterback Brayden Doran can find an open receiver. It's been a 1-2 punch that defenses have had.....

Tigers Tame Panthers

The Ansonia Tigers came into West Alexandria with a 2 game losing skid, which had given them an overall losing record. Meanwhile TVS had won their last game and were hoping to use that as leverage to improve their record in the 2nd half of the season. Ansonia crushed these hopes and spoiled South's homecoming as they dominated in all phases of the game to win 37-7. This gives Ansonia a winning record in the conference(3-2) and evens their overall record (3-3).

The Tiger offense was run oriented, but passed often enough to keep South from loading up the box. Their 1st drive in the 2nd half was a case in point. The offense had a nice clock eating drive where they....

Arcanum Air Attack Too Much for North


Arcanums potent air attack overwhelmed the North secondary as the team amassed 363 yards of passing offense on way to a 48-16 win. Quarterback Bryce Schondelmeyer also added over a 100 rushing yards on called quarterback draw plays and scrambles.

Both teams were undefeated in league play entering the game, so it was an important win in the standings. At the midpoint of the regular season, there are now just 2 remaining teams that are....

Jets Soar Over Hounds

The Franklin-Monroe Jets journeyed to Dixie for their league contest against the Greyhounds. Defense was the name of the game for the Jets as the Greyhounds fielded a taller front line. So the second line of the Jets had to dig hard to keep the ball in play. It did take 4 sets, but the visitors would drive home with the win 25-21, 21-25, 25-11, 25-16.

Patriots Pound Panthers


The Patriots dispatched the Twin Valley South Panthers 41-6. They got an early 20-0 lead, but stalled in the 2nd quarter. The team regrouped at halftime and put up another 21 points to cement the win. Although the defense gave up a score, they held South in check most of the night and were able to generate turnovers – even scoring a touchdown.

Arcanum Dispatches Dohn


The Arcanum Trojans took care of the Dohn Panthers in a business-like fashion to open their season with an easy win, 40-8. The opening drive of the night saw Bryce Shondlemeyer complete 6 of 6 passes and get the early lead.  He would be a factor in all of the scores by Arcanum as he would either run or pass for each score.  The Trojan defense likewise took care of business as the Panthers would find 1st downs few and far between for most of the game.  Dohn did manage a score late in the 4th quarter to prevent the shutdown, scoring with 1 second left on the clock.

Trail Falls to Triad in Playoffs


This was National Trails 2nd appearance in the playoffs and they were hoping to make history with their 1st playoff win, but it was not to be. The National Trail Blazers played with the Triad Cardinals for a half but faltered after halftime - the Blazers were only down by a score, it was 7-14 at the break. But in the 2nd half the Cardinals seemed to find another gear and would eventually win 42-7. Their passing attack caught fire and the Blazers gave up several long passes. And when the Blazers loosened up their defense to defend the pass, it opened up running lanes for the ground game. This allowed the Cardinals to control the ball in the 2nd half and keep the Blazer offense off the field.

    North Dominates South


    Despite a rocky start - giving up an opening kickoff touchdown that was ran in by South's Mike Crews, North quickly got on track and dominated South for a 42-7 win.  And to add to the early miscues, on their first snap from scrimmage, North fumbled the ball - they recovered the ball but it was a shaky start to a rivalry game for the visiting Panther team. North did complete that drive and scored a touchdown when Luke Eby plunged in from  4 yards out. But the momentum shifted when Ben Singleton recovered a South fumble at midfield.  That stopped a South drive that could have put them back on top.

    But from that point on, North did all of the scoring. They regained the momentum and did not let South threaten again. They did this despite losing their starting quarterback Dylan Stinson last week due to injury. Their back up took over this week and did a commendable job at the helm. North passed sparingly, but were effective.  

    "We let them run the kickoff back for a touchdown and at that point they had all the momentum. But we kept on chipping away and gradually got that momentum back. We hit on some big plays and got that momentum back."

    Defensively North did a good job of stopping the run and when South tried to pass, South felt the heat. Their quarterback was sacked 5 times.  Cooper Cole got 4 of the sacks and also kicked a nice coffin corner punt that went about 47 yards and put South on their own 2 yard line. North controlled the line of scrimmage and South found it hard to establish a ground game.  In the last quarter both teams put in their JV's.

    "We pursued well to the ball, and the pass rush was crazy. Cooper Cole was all over the backfield, Isaac Johnson had some pressures. We were getting after it up front. Football is a game of position and Cole did a good job tonight with his kicking game."

    It was rookie head coach Adam Hall's first win with the Panthers.  It was a rivalry game and also the game was sponsored by the National Guard, who furnished the host South team with camouflage jerseys. So there was plenty of pressure for this game.

    North scoring:Luke Eby 4 yd TD run; Eby 6 yd TD run; 15 yd TD catch; Eby 2 yd TD run;  6 yd TD run; Booth 4 yd TD run.

    North defense: Braeden Rike int; Rike sack; Cooper Cole 4 sacks; Jacob Davis fumble recovery; Ben Singleton fumble recovery

    South defense: Napier sack. South offense Crews 62 yd TD run.

    Coach Hall on the game,"I am very proud of our guys, we lost our starting quarterback last week,which is hard for any team. I have to commend Twin Valley South, they were hard hitting the entire game. They played hard too.  But I am proud of the way we played. We will break down the film and see what we need to do better for next week against Bethel."
