FRIDAY NIGHT REWIND: Raiders break long shutout drought

GOSHEN — When the Northridge Raiders blanked Warsaw Friday night it stopped a streak of 37 games since the defense last recorded a shutout. Northridge posted a 33-0 win over Wawasee in Middlebury back on Sept. 4, 2009.

Northridge’s defense was pretty stingy on Friday, holding the Tigers to 111 yards of total offense.

Warsaw gained 70 yards on the ground and 40 in the air.

“Defense is where this all started tonight,” Northridge coach Tom Wogomon said.

Warsaw senior tailback Tristan McClone was held to 70 yards on 21 carries after galloping for 322 in last season’s 35-21 victory over the Raiders.

“All we had to do is remember what he (McClone) did to us last year,” Northridge senior defensive tackle Lucas Wickey said.

Most of the time when McClone took the ball he was tackled by three or four Raiders.

“Our defense did a whale of a job, our offense was efficient and special teams great,” Wogomon said.

Turn around

The Raiders have gone from a 2-9 record a year ago to a 4-1 start this season.

“Confidence is the biggest difference,” Wickey said. “Coach Wogomon has made a huge change in that area.”

Is Wogomon surprised by the quick turn around?

“If you had asked me that question last spring when I first started being around these kids my answer would have been yes,” he said.

“Now after having been around them and seeing how they approached things in the off-season it would be no.”

Wogomon streak

Wogomon has now won four straight decisions against Warsaw head coach Phil Jensen, Wogomon won his last three games with Warsaw as coach of Wawasee before Friday night’s victory in his first season at Northridge.

The Wogomon-led Wawasee Warriors topped Warsaw 14-13 in 2012, 26-14 in 2011 and 26-7 in 2010 following a 57-27 Tiger victory in 2009.

College connection

Northridge defensive coordinator Mike Logan was a college football teammate of Jensen’s at Butler University.

Fairfield at Eastside

Near record breaker


Fairfield senior tailback Cameron Kitson had a career-night and a almost a record-setting one Friday night for the Falcons. Kitson rushed for 269 yards on 22 carries and scored six touchdowns in Fairfield’s 55-28 NECC win at Eastside.

He scored on runs of 8, 18, 27, 20 and 44 yards in addition to catching a 5-yard TD pass from senior quarterback Kyle Mast.

Jayme Mathews holds the Fairfield single-game rushing record with 323 yards against Central Noble in 1996. He also holds the single-game scoring record with his seven scores in the same contest.

Offensive fireworks

Fairfield gained 420 of its 485 yards of total offense on the ground. The 55 points by the Falcons is the most since a 56-0 home win over Central Noble in the first game of the 2012 season.

Concord at Goshen

Batle in the trenches  
   

There are no statistics for offensive linemen in the summaries that appear on this page.

Both groups performed admirably at Foreman Field with the Minutemen racking up 464 yards in total offense and the Redskins 280 in Concord’s 49-21 win.

Concord’s crew up front features senior Ethan Beabout at center, juniors Tyler Kelly and Wesley Lee at guards, seniors Michael McQueen and Eriq Jordan at tackles and sophomore Matt Wilmore at tight end.

Goshen starts junior Nick Gerber at center, senior Mitchell Watts and sophomore Derek Paz at guards, seniors George Palos and Chase Gregory at tackles.

“I love running our offense,” said Concord senior quarterback Trevor Wilmore. “It’s the read option like Oregon and Notre Dame have been running. It’s all about reads and keeps the defense on their toes.”

While it was a long night for the Goshen defense, there were some bright spots.

For the defense

Sophomore Brady Bechtel intercepted two Concord passes with sophomores Colton Potter and Hunter Pearson and senior Austin Weirich also having impressive plays.

“The second half of our season starts right now,” said GHS coach Mike Cheviron. “We have some games coming up we should have a chance of winning.”

Senior Carlos Duarte had a 33-yard reception on the first play of the game for Goshen and sophomore Cameron Kline had a 59-yard kick return.

Both teams used two backup quarterbacks — Kline and sophomore Connor Glick for the Redskins, sophomore Jason Grooms and junior Cullen Fisher for CHS.

The “Green and Red” football rivalry started on Sept. 7, 1962 with Goshen notching a 21-0 victory at Foreman Field. Tom Bittle, Ron Miller and Jim Holtzinger scored touchdowns for Coach Bob Rumsey’s Redskins.

Wawasee at NorthWood

Solemn moment  
 

Just before kickoff, a moment of silence was observed for Rod Bradway, 41, an Indianapolis police officer and 1991 NorthWood graduate who was shot and killed in the line of duty Friday morning while responding to a domestic violence call in Indianapolis.

Bradway was a three-sport athlete at NorthWood. His No. 12 jersey was displayed on the Panther sideline near the bench during the Panthers’ 21-16 loss to the Warriors.

Passing fancy

The Warrior passing game was humming Friday night against the Panthers, as junior QB Gage Reinhard completed 15-of-22 passes for 216 yards and three TDs with no interceptions. Reinhard generously spread the wealth to four different receivers. Jordan Elliott led the way with eight catches for 109 yards, Austin Lutz had four for 57, including a pair of TDs; Sam Clark had three catches for 47 yards; and Clayton Cook added one catch for 3 yards.

Lakeland at West Noble

Chargers struggle with Lakers


The Charger offense struggled against a stingy Lakeland offense Friday night: The Chargers lost to the Lakers, 33-0.

Lakeland, with Friday night’s win over the Chargers, is now surrendering just 7.8 ppg.

One bright spot for the Chargers can be found in the fact that they kept the Lakers off the scoreboard in the second quarter.

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?
