PREP FOOTBALL: Tigers run past Goshen

GOSHEN — Any game plan for defeating the Warsaw Tigers has to start with stopping or at least containing Tiger senior running back Tristan McClone.                

Goshen was unable to do that and the result was a 34-12 win by the Tigers on Homecoming Night at Foreman Field.

A disappointed Goshen head coach Mike Cheviron looked at the stats and could not find much to criticize — but lack of execution on defense turned out to be the Redskins’ undoing on this fall night.

“McClone just ran through us,” Cheviron said. “We really thought this was one we could get.”               

The Redskins (0-6 overall, 0-4 NLC) looked like they were putting together a good drive on their opening possession, but the drive stalled on the Warsaw 40 after the Redskins were stopped on a fourth-and 1 play.                

That appeared to deflate the Redskins a bit, and the Tigers erupted for 27 points, getting 27-and 50-yard TD runs from McClone and field goals of 34 and 22 yards from Caleb Klusman.                

The Redskins finally started to shake off their early offensive doldrums late in the second quarter, with junior quarterback Derek DeMeyer connecting with sophomore receiver Brady Bechtel on an 11-yard TD pass. A try for two failed and Goshen trailed 27-6.                

Warsaw (4-2, 3-1) cashed in a Goshen miscue late in the half, recovering a Redskin fumble deep in Goshen territory and getting a 15-yard TD scamper from McClone for a 34-6 halftime advantage.

Warsaw’s reserves took over in the second half and saw most of the action on both sides of the ball.                

Goshen added a score in the fourth quarter on a 5-yard TD run by DeMeyer, and again a two-point attempt failed.

McClone had 14 carries for 247 yards and three TDs in the first half alone, and called it a night on the offensive side of the ball at halftime.  Warsaw defensive coordinator Kris Hueber said it was the kind of effort the Tiger staff has been looking for all season.  

“If we come out and play like this every week, the wins are going to take care of themselves,” Hueber said.

Bechtel was a bright spot on offense for Goshen with three catches for 79 yards and a TD. Senior running back John Trenshaw contributed hard running, with 63 tough yards on 13 carries.            

The Redskins travel to Northridge next Friday night. Warsaw hosts Wawasee.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
