PREP FOOTBALL: Jimmies beat up Concord

DUNLAP — One of the few good things for the Concord Minutemen Friday night was it wasn’t an NLC game.

The No.1 -ranked Class 5A Minutemen looked sluggish on offense and turned the ball over four times in a 35-14 non-conference loss to the visiting Jimtown Jimmies.

“It’s not a conference loss and the bulls eye is off our backs,” Concord coach Tim Dawson said. “Jimtown played one of their best games. They didn’t do any of the things we saw in the three games tapes we watched.”

Jimtown kept the ball away from Concord by controlling the clock with a power running game. Jimtown had the ball for 34:51 compared to 13:09 for Concord. The Minutemen had the ball for a mere :22 in the fourth period.

“Jimtown was getting five or six yards on first down,” Dawson said. “You can’t give a team that grinds the ball out like the Jimmies do that kind of yards on first down.

“We pit our defense on the field way too much and many of the times it was in a short-field situation.”

One of the keys for the Jimmies was the play of junior quarterback Marquis Schieber. He rushed for 60 yards as the Jimmies only turned the ball over once. Schieber ran for an 18-yard touchdown at 2:38 of the second period to give the Jimmies a 21-0 halftime lead. He tossed a 14-yard TD pass to sophomore Trevor Hobbs at 2:24 of the third period.

“The main thing we want from Schieber was taking care of the ball,” Jimtown coach Mike Campbell said. “But we also told him if he got the chance to take off with the ball and use his speed.

“That was a great ball he threw to Hobbs and Hoobs made a great catch.”

On the Concord side senior quarterback Trevor Wilmore had an off night, completing 6-of-17 passes for 92 yards.

“Trevor had one of his worst games,” Dawson said. “He missed open receivers in the first half plus we dropped some balls.

“The bottom line of the game is our playmakers didn’t make plays whole the Jimtown kids did.”

Wilmore did give the Concord fans something to cheer about when he hooked up with junior wide receiver Jerrell Pointdexter on a 53-yard scoring pass with 4:35 left to play.

“We played poorly on offense,: Dawson said. “But you have to give credit to the Jimtown coaching staff. Part of our poor play on offense was due to the pressure they were putting on the ball.

“We have no excuses. I think our kids lost focus a little bit this week. We lost to Jimtown last season and it made us a better team. I could see it on faces tonight they didn’t like what happened to them. We will bounce back from this.”

Junior Nik Olson rushed for 81 yards for the Jimmies and senior Casey Adams 65. Adams scored on a 3-yard run at 3:22 of the first period and on a 1-yard run at 11:56 of the second.

“Our kids are football players and I think they got tired of hearing how bad they were after last week (25-7 loss to New Prairie),” Campbell said. “We don’t have big offensive linemen but we controlled the line of scrimmage. I consider Concord’s defensive line to be one of the best in this part of the state.”

Concord (5-1) at Plymouth and Jimtown (4-2) hosts Culver Community next Friday.
