FRIDAY NIGHT REWIND: ‘Next man in’ shines for Goshen

GOSHEN — Concord coach Tim Dawson has always had the philosophy of “next man in,” meaning reserve players have to be ready to step in if the player in front of them on the depth chart goes down with an injury.

Goshen coach Mike Cheviron saw that kind of performance from his backup quarterback — sophomore Cameron Kline — Friday night at Plymouth.

Junior starter Derek DeMeyer was out of action due to an injury and Kline made the most of his first career start at quarterback, rushing for 211 yards on 30 carries (6.8 yards per carry) and two touchdowns. He also completed 8-of-17 passes for 30 yards.

In case that wasn’t enough Kline averaged 38 yards on four punts with a long of 45.

“I bet he is going to drive the bus home and probably do the laundry,” Denny Weldy of ElkhartCountySports.com said.

“His broadcast partner Brent Randall said, “He might even sell a couple of hot dogs and some popcorn at halftime.”

Kline and classmate Brady Bechtel were two of the standouts on the Goshen freshmen team that went undefeated a year ago.

The Plymouth game was not the first action Kline has seen this season. He entered the game with 99 rushing yards on 13 carries (7.62 average) and 34 receptions for 241 yards (6.89).

Long scoring drive

Kline guided a 20-play, 80-yard scoring drive that lasted an impressive 8:29. The drive was capped by his six-yard touchdown run at 10:27 of the fourth period.

“I don’t remember too many 20-play scoring drives in high school football,” Cheviron said.

The drive nearly stalled twice when the Redskins faced fourth-down situations. Goshen had a fourth-and-four at the 50-yard line when Kline connected on a five-yard pass to senior Matt Unrue (first catch of the season) and a fourth-and-10 at the P-45 on the next series before Kline scrambled 25 yards to the P-20.

Turnover conversion

Goshen’s first score was setup when senior defensive back Sam Byler picked off a Plymouth pass and returned the ball to the P-32. A defensive pass interference call and two runs by Kline, including the final six, got the Redskins on the scoreboard with 1:31 left before halftime.

The interception was one of three turnovers the Redskin defense forced.

Senior Carlos Duarte also had an interception and sophomore Lorenzo Charles recovered a fumble.

Leading tacklers for Goshen were Duarte with four solos and two assists, junior Jon Bailey two and five, senior John Trenshaw four solos and senior Devin Kauffman three and one assist.

Northridge at Concord

Wilmore’s rebound

After two straight losses, the Concord Minutemen were looking to rebound in a big way Friday night on Homecoming Night against Northridge.

Senior quarterback Trevor Wilmore was a big part of the Minutemen’s 35-7 victory over the Raiders. Wilmore had 10 carries for 76 yards and passed for 167 yards and three scores to lead the Concord offensive attack.

Wilmore said Friday night’s effort was a result of putting the past two weeks in the rear view mirror.

“We knew we needed to come out strong,” Wilmore said.

Brother act

Wilmore completed nine passes Friday night. Four of them went to his younger brother, 6-4, 200-pound sophomore tight end Matt Wilmore.

One of the passes — an 11-yarder — was the Minutemen’s first TD of the second quarter as Concord built a 14-0 halftime lead.

Fairfield at Churubusco

Conference championship


The Fairfield Falcons clinched at least a share of the NECC title by defeating Churubusco 35-14 Friday night.

Fairfield is 7-1 in the league while Churubusco and Lakeland are tied for second at 6-1. Fairfield closes out the regular season with a home date against Culver Military Academy next Friday while Churubusco is at Lakeland.

The Falcons are having “Hometown Heros Night” in honor of veterans. Fairfield will be wearing special camouflage jerseys that will be presented to them by the National Guard Thursday night. There will be other activities, including a visit from two Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders.

Falcon offensive output

The 35 points by Fairfield is more than Churubusco had allowed over the previous seven games. The Eagle defense had yielded only 29 points. The most prior to Friday was 13 by Eastside on Sept. 13.

NorthWood at Warsaw

Productive quarterback


Senior Will Kirkwood accounted for 206 of NorthWood’s 261 yards of total offense in its 28-7 loss to the Warsaw Tigers. He completed 10-of-22 passes for 150 yards and ran the ball 10 times for 56 yards.

Kirkwood also accounted for the score when he tossed a 20-yard TD pass to junior Travis Bear at 8:32 of the third period.

Hidden yardage

While Warsaw’s Tristan McClone was hard to contain Friday night, NorthWood coach Scott Hoover said the real killer was the yardage McClone was able to get after contact.

“Our guys would have him wrapped up and he’d gain an extra two yards,” said Hoover.

McClone averaged 6.9 yards per carry with a long of 40 yards.

Field position

NorthWood didn’t do itself any favors with turnovers. But the Panthers also were limited in chances to flip field position. NorthWood had Warsaw pinned at its own 4-yard line. That ended up in an 18-play touchdown-scoring drive. Then there was the matter of Caleb Klusman. The kicker for the Tigers was 5-5 on the day on touchbacks. So instead of having a chance of a return to spark a drive, NorthWood started the day at its own 20 five times.

Recent struggles

NorthWood has lost four of its last five meetings with Warsaw. That’s a far cry from the 15 previous years where NorthWood held a 10-5 advantage. Warsaw’s 21-point victory ties the Tigers’ largest margin of victory of the Panthers since 1982 when Warsaw earned a 21-0 win.

NorthWood still leads the all-time series 31-14.

Sectional pairings for the 41st annual state football tournament will be announced tonight at 7. The parings show is available on FOX Sports Indiana which is not available in the Goshen area on Comcast Cable. It is available on DircTV or Dish Network.
