Apaches shut out by Warriors

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash Apache football team traveled to Denver Friday to take on North Miami, falling to the Warriors 21-0.

The game got off to a good start for the Apaches when they executed an onside kick and recovered, only to fumble the ball away to North Miami on their offensive possession. The Warriors would take advantage of the turnover, scoring four minutes later to take a 7-0 lead.

The second quarter would be much the same for Wabash, as the Apaches could not hold on to the ball. Taking advantage of a third Wabash fumble, North Miami scored with 5:10 left in the half to take a 14-0 lead. Wabash would fumble eight times in the first half, digging a 21-0 hole.

North Miami would join the fumble parade in the third quarter, coughing up the ball twice with Wabash recovering, but the Apaches could not capitalize, making the 21-0 score the final.

Fourth quarter heroics lift Knights over Valley

by Gary Andrews

The old saying "it's not over til it's over" hit the nail right on the head Friday for the Southwood football team as the Knights used some fourth quarter heroics to nip Tippecanoe Valley 34-33 on a 23 yard field goal by Zach Hobson with six seconds remaining in the game.

Hobson would actually score the first and last points for the Knights. Valley would get the ball first, when on the third play Corey Phillipy would recover a fumble. Robbie Cole and the Knight offense would go to work from the 50. Cole hit Danny Goff to the 35 when it looked as though the drive would stall. On 4th and 13 Cole found Goff again to the Viking 20, then Jacob Lloyd yard to the 13. After two incomplete passes, Hobson would connect on a 30-yard field goal to give Southwood a 3-0 lead. On Valley's next drive, Nathan Hollars would pick off a pass on the 24 to stop Valley again. The Knight offense ended up punting and Valley responded this time, scoring from 1 yard out to lead 7-3 after one.
