FRIDAY NIGHT REWIND: Falcons honor military on special night


GOSHEN — Wawasee at Goshen

Definsive standouts

Seniors Brett Ward and Ryan Crosley were among defensive standouts early for the Warriors in the game at Foreman Field. Wawasee pitched a shutout in the second half and won, 17-14.

Junior Brock Spangle had a fumble recovery for WHS in Period 2 and senior Austin Lutz an interception on Goshen’s last play of the game.

Goshen also had some sparkling defensive plays with junior Jon Stutsman, sophomores Cameron Kline and Colton Potter each knocking down passes in the first half.

Seniors Sam Byler and Carlos Duarte intercepted Wawasee passes and Potter recovered a short kickoff when the Warriors were receiving.

With a “bye” week coming up before Class 5A sectional play, Goshen could get some injured players back for a game at home against Elkhart Central on Nov. 1.

They include junior quarterback Derek DeMeyer, sophomore receiver Brady Bechtel, junior linemen Adam Pearson and Nick Gerber.

Northridge at Elkhart Memorial

Raider defense

The Northridge Raiders put on a defensive display of their own by holding Memorial to 54 yards of total offense (38 rushing and 16 passing) in a 27-0 victory Friday night.

Northridge also shutout Warsaw (24-0) and Goshen (20-0) this season. It’s the first time for the Raiders to post three shutouts in a season since 1986 when Northridge whitewashed Angola (12-0), Fairfield (6-0 in overtime) and Leo (35-0).

The Memorial win was Northridge’s seventh this season, which is the most wins in a season since 1977 when the Raiders finished 7-3 for coach Ray Reid.

The most wins Northridge has ever had in a season is nine (one loss) in 1975 for coach Bob Cornell. The 1975 season was the fifth in the program’s history.

The West Noble Chargers notched their third win of the season with a 20-point outburst in the fourth period in a 32-12 NECC win over the visiting Fremont Eagles.

Junior Brandon Moser caught an 11-yard TD pass from senior quarterback Landon Stover, junior Luke Wechter returned an interception 41 yards for a score and junior Levi Nelson had a 9-yard TD run for the Chargers to break a 12-12 tie at the end of the third period.
