Kitson, nearing TD record, leads Falcons into semifinals

(Continued)

“Twins Lakes does a lot of things. One game we watched they ran 24 different formations. That is a lot to prepare for a in a short time. The Indians are a spread pistol team. Right now they are about 60 percent run and 40 pass. We are trying to keep things very simple on defense. We want they players to react and not over think things. Twin Lakes is similar to Maconaquah except they might not have as much speed.”

Kitson is the leading rusher for the Falcons with 1,423 yards on 144 carries (9.88 per carry), followed by 5-9 (182) senior Lucas Miller 442 on 67 (6.60) and 5-7 (161) senior Tony Zook 420 on 87 (4.83).

Kyle Mast, 5-11 (150) senior quarterback, is 76-of-139 passing (54.7 percent) for 1,062 yards. He had 13 TD passes and three interceptions.

Reid Kammerdiener, 5-10 (234) sophomore kicker, has booted 49-of-54 PATs.

Leaders on defense are 5-10 (175) sophomore Mitch Dewitt 57 tackles and 46 assists, Lucas Miller 38 and 79, 5-5 (126) senior Forrest Glogouski 26 and 39 and 5-5 (182) junior David Sceniak 20 and 45. Dewitt has three interceptions, 5-5 (150) senior Ben Hunley, Lucas Miller and 6-2 (160) junior Nolan Miller each two.

Memorial (2-7) at Concord (7-2)

Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Series record: Concord 15-5

Last Meeting: Concord 38-7 in Week 2

The opposing team is a familiar one, but when the Concord Minutemen host the Memorial Crimson Chargers this time there will be a different quarterback at the controls of the home team’s offense.

Trevor Wilmore, 6-1 (177) senior quarterback, is not expected to play after suffering a partially-torn PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) in the final game of the regular season against Warsaw.

“Trevor has been medically cleared to play. But we don’t plan on using him unless we absolutely have to,” Concord coach Tim Dawson said. “The PCL is in the back of the knee and the injury doesn’t require surgery.”

That leaves the offense in charge of 5-9 (156) sophomore Jason Grooms and 5-10 (148) junior Cullen Fisher.

“Both of them have done a good job this season,” Dawson said. “They shared the quarterback role on an undefeated JV team. The plan is to start Grooms, but we will give Fisher a couple of series. Then we will probably ride the one that has the hot hand.”

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
