Norse fall at buzzer to Valley

by Gary Andrews

A failed two point conversion attempt with no time on the clock was all that separated Northfield from taking Tippecanoe Valley in to overtime Friday as the Norse fell to the Vikings 34-32.

Trailing by 8, Northfield scored as time expired to cut the lead to 34-32 with a two point conversion pass being knocked down to decide the outcome.

With the rain coming down the passing game for both teams was pretty much non-existent, forcing both ground games to grind it out. Valley would notch the only score in the first quarter on a 2-yard run coming with 44.8 seconds left on the clock to lead 6-0 after one.

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.

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.
