FRIDAY NIGHT REWIND: Longtime Goshen fixture honored

GOSHEN — Just prior to kickoff against Warsaw Friday night, Goshen school officials honored longtime team doctor David Koronkiewicz with a surprise presentation.               

Koronkiewicz, an orthopedic surgeon with IU Health Goshen Hospital, served as the Redskins’ team doctor for 19 years before stepping away from the role this season. Friday night, he was back on the Redskin sideline filling in for one of his partners.                

And that, coincidence or not, allowed for the surprise.                

Koronkiewicz said over the years, his favorite moments have come from being on the field to see his three sons play for the Redskins: David, who played football at Northern Illinois; Michael, who played golf at Southern Indiana; and Steven.

McClone’s big night                

Friday night against Goshen, it seemed like every time Tiger senior running back Tristan McCone touched the ball, the holes were there.           McClone had 247  yards on 14 carries with a trio of TDs in the first half alone en route to a …-yard performance.

Jimtown at Concord

History repeats

It’s the second year in a row the Concord Minutemen have entered the Week 6 matchup with Jimtown undefeated only to be turned back by the Jimmies.

“We challenged our kids to play every play like it was their last,” Jimtown coach Mike Campbell said.

“We told them this was going to be a game they would remember for the rest of their lives so they might as well make it a good memory.”

A year ago, Jimtown was 48-0 winner over the Minutemen and the following week Concord lost to Plymouth 31-28.

“Last season’s loss to Jimtown made us a better team,” Concord coach Tim Dawson said. “We will have to wait and see how this group responds.’

Following the back-to-back losses a year ago the Minutemen won six straight games before the season ended with a 24-21 semistate loss to Mishawka.

Defensive pressure

Concord’s senior quarterback Trevor Wilmore completed 6-of-17 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown and carried the ball seven times for 57. He was under pressure all night by the Jimtown defense.

“He is too good of a quarterback for us not to pressure him,” Campbell said. “If we let him sit back there in the pocket with the receivers he has he would pick us apart.”

Wilmore entered the contest as Concord’s leading rusher (468 yards) and passer (930).

Concord-Jimtown Connection

Both the Concord and Jimtown marching bands were at the game Friday night. The director of the Jimtown band — Kathy Lambright — is a Concord graduate.

Angola at Fairfield

Senior leadership shines for Falcons

The Falcons are truly a veteran team with seniors in 18 of 22 starting positions.

Tyler Hostetler, Reece Miller, Jodean Miller, Andrew Hagar, Garrett Cole, Jaylin Miller, Forrest Glogouski, Tony Zook, Cameron Kitson and Kyle Mast are 12th graders starting on offense.

Defensive seniors for the Falcons are Micah Geyer, Thomas Martin, Zook, Kolin Erb, Lucas Miller, Glogouski, Caleb Armbruster and Ben Hunley.

The only underclassmen starting for Fairfield are sophomore guard Alec Brock, sophomore linebacker Mitch DeWitt, junior linebacker David Seniak and junior safety Nolan Miller.

Veteran head coach has some reliable and experienced assistants in Bill Dunlap, Darin Holsopple, Zack Worthman, Alex Korenstra, Jim Jones and Ryan LeCount.

With the Falcons running away from Angola 53-14 Friday night, that gave Miller and his staff a chance to get younger players some varsity time.

Sophomore Sam Brown and freshman Brady Willard both took snaps at quarterback with sophomore Spencer Roose, freshmen Zach Wagler and Travis McCoy getting carries.

Senior Kolin Erb had a quarterback sack late in the game with senior Thomas Martin having one earlier.

Fairfield ran 57 offensive plays to Angola’s 52.

NorthWood at Northridge

Long time coming

The last time Northridge defeated NorthWood it cost 25 cents to mail a first-class letter and a gallon of regular gas was 90 cents. None of the current Northridge players had been born yet and first-year coach Tom Wogomon had been out of Goshen High School for two years.

Northridge’s 39-14 win over NorthWood on Friday ended a 29-game losing streak to the Panthers that stretched over the last quarter-century.

There have been four seasons — 1989, 1991, 1993 and 1998 — the teams played during the regular season and again in the sectional.

The first meeting between the schools was in 1979 with NorthWood winning 22-0. Todd Adams, Mark Alfano and Brian Bemiller scored TDs for the Panthers. Alfano kicked two PATs and NorthWood recorded a team safety.

Winning as a family

It was a memorable win for the Northridge Raiders Friday night as they defeated the Northwood Panthers for the first time in 25 years and the first time in history on the Raider’s field.

It was also a special night for the Love family as current Raider quarterback Tanner Love was able to honor his father with this win. Jeremy Love (Tanner’s father) was on the winning Raider team 25 years ago that beat Northwood in regular season play

Wawasee at Plymouth

Offensive outburst

The 52 points scored by Wawasee Friday night is the most by the Warriors since a 53-0 season-opening win over West Noble back in 1973. In that game Ralph Reiff and Mike Vanlandingham both scored two TDs, Rick Dahlstrom, Jeff Miller, Jeff Owens and Chris Paulus each one. Reiff kicked five PATs.

The 1973 season was the first of Hal Traviolia’s seven coaching Wawasee.

The last time the Warriors hit the 50-point plateau was in 1998 in a 50-28 victory over Whitko.

Rutin Mikel scored four TDs, Tony May two, Travis Klenke and Jimmy Meyer both one for the Warriors. Jeremy High kicked two PATs

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.
