Presented By Rathkamp Financial

The (3-2) Jackson Ironmen showed great determination in the second half as they overcame a Wheelersburg rally and leaned on their back-up quarterback in a 21-20 overtime victory over the (2-3) Wheelersburg Pirates, Friday in Jackson in our Litter Media Game of the Week.

(Evan Spires led Jackson at QB in the first half, before leaving with an injury)

Jackson scored first thanks to a scoop and score TD fumble return by Drew Bragg at 9:41 of the first quarter, followed by the PAT kick from Ethan Crabtree for a 7-0 lead.

Wheelersburg capitalized on a fumble recovery of their own, then later saw Ethan Glover score on a 3 yard run at 2:35 of the first quarter. The PAT kick was good, tying the game at 7-7.

The Ironmen grabbed the lead back at 2:33 of the second quarter, when starting quarterback Evan Spires connected with Eli Broermann on a 17 yard TD strike. The PAT kick gave Jackson a 14-7 advantage, which they would take into the locker room at halftime.

After Jackson’s Evan Spires left the game with an injury, Jacob Winters came on in relief to lead the Ironmen’s offense the rest of the game.

With Jackson leading, the Pirates’ Eli Sword provided a key interception deep on Jackson’s side of the field with less than 20 seconds to play in the third quarter. That led to an Ethan Glover TD run from one yard out with five seconds left in the third period. The PAT kick evened the score at 14-14 headed to the fourth quarter.

That’s the way the score remained until late in regulation play, as the Pirates had a couple of possessions that took the ball into Ironmen territory. With 4:13 left in the fourth quarter, the Pirates had the ball at the Jackson 35, but lost the ball on a fumble. Jackson was unable to get anything going and punted to Wheelersburg’s 33 yard line with :38 remaining.

The Pirates crossed midfield and attempted a 51 yard field goal that could have won the game. Braxton Sammons’ gave it a gallant try, but his field goal attempt bounced off the crossbar sending the game to overtime at 14-14.

Wheelersburg won the coin-toss and elected to give Jackson the first possession with the ball. The Ironmen’s Jacob Winters found Cade Wolford on a 12 yard TD pass and their PAT kick made it 21-14 Jackson.

Wheelersburg took their OT possession and also scored on a two yard run making it 21-20. Electing to go for the win, the Pirates went for two points on the PAT try, but Jackson’s defense held on a running play, sealing the home victory 21-20.

Jackson QB Jacob Winters was named McDonald’s Player of the Game.

WCH At Paint Valley In Litter Media GOTW

Presented By Rathkamp Financial

The Blue Lions of Washington Court House from the FAC, travel to Paint Valley to face the Bearcats of the SVC in our Litter Media Game of the Week in high school football Friday night.

WCH Coach Chuck Williamson says they got away with some mistakes in Week 1, still getting a victory, but those mistakes caught up with them in a Week 2 loss to a tough Western Brown team, which now make the Blue Lions (1-1).

Paint Valley Coach Cory Dye and two of their assistant coaches are former coaches from WCH, which makes that aspect of this match-up an interesting one.

Coach Chuck Williamson says he’s concerned about the Bearcats athleticism, saying “they have size and the ability to fly around to the ball.”

But, he says the Blue Lions are pretty athletic as well. He says they are an “up-tempo spread team offensively”, adding that they have some “very talented skill guys”, which includes 6’5- 230 pound Tanner Lemaster, who has received D-1 college offers from Michigan State, Indiana, and Tennessee. 

The Blue Lions have great strength in their front 11 on both sides of the ball, running a two-platoon system with very few players ever playing both offense and defense.

From Bearcats Coach Cory Dye, he gave the same props to Washington CH, knowing they will be tough to defend. Paint Valley also enters the game at (1-1), winning in Week 1, but suffered a tough loss to state powerhouse West Jefferson in Week 2.

Due to an injury in Week 1, Paint Valley had Cavan Cooper playing running back last week in their loss to West Jefferson and Coach Dye says they expect him to remain in the running back spot against Washington CH, with Dax Estep at quarterback.

The Logan Elm Braves treated their fans and seniors to a thrilling season-opening 28-27 overtime victory over Zane Trace Friday, to kickoff high school football season for 2021.

The Pioneers got on the scoreboard first, scoring on a Daniel Barnhart 2 yard TD run, after he had a big run to set up the score. The PAT kick was good and ZT took a 7-0 lead at 6:20 of the first quarter.

Blayton Reid got the Braves in the scoring column as he dashed down the right sideline after breaking several tackles for a long TD run. The PAT attempt failed, leaving Zane Trace with a 7-6 lead with :24 left in the first quarter.

The Zane Trace Pioneers offense is set to run a play

It didn’t take long for the Braves to grab their first lead as Logan Elm’s R.J. Weber had a career first pick-six TD return for a score. The Braves two point conversion was good for a 14-7 lead with 7:27 remaining, in the first half. That score would hold as the halftime score.

In the third quarter, Pioneers’ running back Blake Phillips broke through the Logan Elm defense for a 40 yard TD run with 6:35 left in the third quarter, tying the game at 14-14.

Logan Elm QB Garrett Summers scored on a 3 yard TD run at the 4:48 mark of the third period with the PAT also good, handing the Braves a 21-14 advantage.

The Pioneers drew even at 21-21 as Ben Nichols’ QB keeper up the middle for a long TD run with :16 left in third quarter. The PAT conversion tied the game at 21-21, which is how regulation play would end as both teams were scoreless in the fourth period.

In the overtime, Zane Trace had the ball first. The Pioneers drive nearly stalled, before Ben Nichols connected on a pass play for a first down. Nichols then scored on a 7 yard run for a 27-21 lead. The PAT attempt was foiled, when the snap for the extra point kick was too high for the holder to handle.

That then gave Logan Elm their possession, which saw Blayton Reid score his second touchdown of the game, tying the score 27-27 in OT. It was then place-kicker Jude Braun’s turn as he connected on the PAT kick for the 28-27 OT win.

(0-1) Zane Trace hosts Madison Plains next Friday while (1-0) Logan Elm travels to Westfall.

The Litter Media Game of the Week for August 27th is Amanda Clearcreek at Unioto, followed by the Litter Media Live GOTW Post Game Show, featuring video highlights, coaches and player interviews from that game.
