FRIDAY NIGHT REWIND: A pair of Jacobs for the defense

GOSHEN — It’s rare enough to see two interceptions returned for touchdowns in a game let alone two by players with the first name of Jacob.

Concord senior Jacob Kronk returned an interception 75 yards for a score at 3:32 of the second period while Plymouth Jacob Frantz returned a pick 70 yards for a score at 7:35 of the second.

For good measure in keeping with the “J” theme sandwiched in between was a 75-yard TD run by Plymouth junior Justin Drudge. And along those same lines Concord junior wide receiver Jerrell Pointdexter scored four TDs

Pink Night

It was “Breast Cancer Awareness Night” Friday at Plymouth. The Rockie football team was decked out in pink camouflage uniforms with red numbers and the coaching staff wore pink polo shorts. Even the markings on the field — yard lines, numerals and goal lines — were pink.

Nagle the Magnificent

The Concord-Plymouth game was the TV 46 Game of the Week.  During a halftime discussion that was extended by a lightening delay Bob Nagle one of the 46 announcers said, “If I were the coach I would be getting the ball to (Concord) No. 14 (Pointdexter).

At that point of the contest the Concord speedster had one catch for a 50-yard touchdown.

Concord coach Tim Dawson must have heard the veteran sportscaster’s statement. Pointdexter finished the game with eight receptions for 153 yards and four scores.

Victim of Ball Control

Any coach will tell you the best way to keep a dangerous offense from scoring points is keep it on the sidelines by keeping your offense and the opposing team’s defense on the field.

The Concord Minutemen have been a victim of that the last two weeks. Jimtown limited the Minutemen to :22 time of possession in the fourth period in last week’s 35-14 win at Concord.

During Friday night’s game at Plymouth, the Minutemen ran six plays from the line of scrimmage in the opening period. The Rockies took the opening kickoff and marched 70 yards in 13-play drive capped by a 13-yard TD run by sophomore quarterback Jack Barron.

Concord took only three plays to answer the score. Following a touchback on the kickoff, senior quarterback Trevor Wilmore picked up seven rushing yards on first. The next play was a bizarre one when Wilmore tried to hand the ball off to a running back. The ball ended up laying on the ground. While other player tried to figure out what to do Wilmore snatched the ball and scampered down the near sidelines for 23 yards out to midfield. On the next play he tossed a short pass to junior wideout Jerrell Pointdexter who broke loose in open field and scored on a 5--yard play.

Lakeland at Fairfield

Falcon Defensive Effort


The Fairfield Falcons came up with a huge defensive effort Friday night against the Lakeland Lakers. The week before in a 28-14 win over Eastside three different Lakers rushed for over 100 yards. The team piled up 476 yards on the ground with sophomore Josh Collyer running for 183, senior Taylor Raatz 119 and classmate Thomas Roebel 107.

The Falcons limited the Lakers to 82 yards on 36 rushing attempts for an average of 2.95 yards per carry.
