    Crawfordsville will look to get back into the win column Friday night when they host the Lebanon Tigers for Homecoming night.

    Lebanon’s (4-2, 3-1 SAC) only setbacks this season have come at the hands of Boone County rival Zionsville, 55-54 and Tri-West, last week at Lucas Oil Stadium, 56-48.

  • The Chargers bolt past the Tigers
    Saturday, September 12, 2015 12:15 AM

    The game started out as a slug fest.

    Alex Parsons started the game off with a quick hop into the endzone. The Tigers responded immediately after to end in a tie after the first half.

    The second quarter saw even more action. The Tigers delivered another slug but soon after the Chargers slugged right back with an 11 yard pass to Banta.

    At the end of the first half the Tigers took a 21-13 lead.

    The Sagamore Athletic Conference survived opening night of the football season with a decent 5-3 record -- however, the conference's lone state-ranked team fell from the top spot in Indiana.

    Tri-West came into Friday's showdown ranked No. 1 in Class 3A. West Lafayette was ranked seventh, so something had to give. That turned out to be the Bruins' defense as the Red Devils scored 43 points en route to a 43-23 lopsided victory.

    The Sagamore Athletic Conference All-Conference teams were announced late last week for football.

    Montgomery County schools received nine first team selections, nine second team selections and six honorable mention selections.

    North Montgomery, by virtue of finishing in a tie for second place at 5-2 in conference play, took five first team nods. Tight end and defensive end Kobi Wray was the lone senior selected for the Chargers. Juniors include quarterback and safety Baylee Adams, receiver and linebacker Alex Parsons, receiver and cornerback Vince Gwynn and offensive lineman and linebacker Jordan Banta.

    Quarterback / halfback and safety / linebacker Mitch Dehne joined offensive lineman Nathan Jent to represent Southmont. Both are seniors.

    Seniors Nick Corbin and Robert Manns were selected from Crawfordsville. Corbin was a primary receiver for the Athenians, while Manns was a running back and middle linebacker. He led the team in scoring, rushing and tackles.

    DOVER -- North Montgomery competed in another nail bitter of a game, where the team with the only score won the game.

    This week the Chargers were able to get the victory in a close game. They won on the road 8-0 against the Western Boone Stars. The only score came with 11 minutes and 53 seconds left in the second quarter. Junior quarterback Baylee Adams found his favorite target and fellow junior Alex Parsons for a 6-yard touchdown.

    North Montgomery's head coach Josh Thompson said it's good to be on the winning side of a close one.

    "Oh, it's great! I'm excited for the guys. It was a great. I loved the effort out of those kids tonight" Thompson said.

    "It's great to win after a close loss last week" Parsons said.

    This game was all about defense from the start of the game until the last seconds ticked off the clock. Both teams were held to one first down in the first quarter. The Chargers held the run-heavy Stars to 91 total rushing yards, which is the lowest they have been held to all season.

    Crawfordsville (2-6, 0-6 SAC) looked to send their seniors out with a win Friday evening as they played host to the Lebanon Tigers. However, it was their inability to finish plays defensively, and capitalize in Tiger territory, that ultimately led to their demise as Lebanon (5-3, 4-2 SAC) left with a 35-0 victory.

    "Our seniors played hard. They stepped up, especially, Nick Corbin," said Coach Hammons. "He had to come in once Trent got hurt (with 3:17 left in Q3) and made some big plays. As a group, they kept playing hard and never gave up."

    Lebanon got things rolling on their first drive. Starting at Crawfordsville's 40, Clayton Barber capped the 7-play drive with his first of three touchdowns. He finished the evening with 132-yards on 6 carries, a 22-yard per carry average.

    He scored his second touchdown with 1:22 remaining in the first quarter. He took the handoff over the right side for a 38-yard score and 14-0 lead.

    Crawfordsville wraps up the home portion of their schedule Friday evening as the Lebanon Tigers pay a visit to the Athenian complex.

    Crawfordsville (2-5, 0-5 SAC) will honor their 11 seniors before the game Friday evening.

    "It's a big night for the seniors to get recognized," said coach Mike Hammons of the pre-game ceremony. "They need to play inspired football and let that feed down to the underclassmen to have a chance to beat a good Lebanon squad."

    Lebanon enters the game 4-3 overall, and a 3-2 record in the Sagamore Athletic Conference. Coach Kent Wright, in his 14th season at the helm, has the Tigers playing great defense. They're giving up just over eight points per game, which includes conference leader, Tri-West, scoring just 11.

    "They're good up front on both sides of the ball. The line leads their team," commented Coach Hammons. "We need to get good penetration on defense and maintain our assignments on the offensive side."

  • Chargers drop nailbiter to Lebanon
    Friday, October 3, 2014 9:37 PM
    LINDEN- In a cold and wet game that was dominated by defense and special teams the Lebanon Tigers beat the North Montgomery Chargers 6-0. Both defenses played well and had some extra help from Mother Nature.

    Lebanon held the Chargers offense to just 117 total yards and not a single touchdown. The Tigers also forced one Charger turnover. The Chargers defense also showed up to the game. They allowed 163 total yards, all of which were on the ground. The allowed just the one touchdown, which is all that the Tigers needed. The Chargers did force five Tiger turnovers, but could not capitalize on a single one.

    "We knew that we were going to have to buckle down and stop the run," North Montgomery head coach Josh Thompson said. "For the most part I was pretty happy with our defense. I thought they played their butts off. They got turnovers and I was pretty pleased."

    Early in the third quarter North Montgomery had the ball deep in their territory. The ball was snapped to punter L.J. Smith as he went to kick the ball Lebanon's Erik Hart busted through the line and blocked the punt. Lebanon recovered the ball on the Charger 13 yard line. Four plays later junior running back Gage Pedigo punch in a three yard run with 10:23 left in the second quarter. That touchdown would be the only one of the game.

    "We are a defensive team and the weather was kind of in our advantage," Lebanon head coach Kent Wright said. "Special teams wise that was the key to the game. We got the blocked punt and scored after that.

    Hello Sports Fans.

    How do I say this without sounding too brash - aw the heck with it - I am absolutely on fire, Baby! With a capital F and that rhymes with . . . well, something. But whatever it is, it's hot, smokin' hot. Do you realize that in the last four weeks the most I've missed in any one week was one game? One! A couple of weeks ago I was again perfect, as in perfecto!

    Take me to Vegas, Baby! I'm money. But I digress. While we're speaking of Vegas, this week is a real crap shoot and just for the record, I'm not putting down big bets on any game this week. Everything is close - and home field matters. A bunch.

    LINDEN-North Montgomery (4-2, 3-1 SAC) was crowned the Montgomery County Champs last week. This week North Montgomery plays the visiting Lebanon Tigers (3-3, 2-2 SAC). This week is homecoming for the Chargers, but head coach Josh Thompson does not believe it will be a distraction to his team.

    "There are some extra activities with homecoming. We tell the kids to enjoy them, but when it's over they have to be focused" Thompson said.

    Lebanon is not only looking to spoil North's homecoming, but they want revenge for last year's loss to the Chargers. North Montgomery brought an end to the Tigers undefeated season last year and the Chargers expect them to come after them Friday night.

    "They want revenge on us for last year," senior offensive tackle Tyler Dillon said. "They want revenge for us stopping their undefeated season. So, we got to be ready to play."

    The Chargers are expecting this game to be won or lost in the trenches.

  • County title up for grabs
    Thursday, September 25, 2014 7:40 PM
    Hello Sports Fans.

    Ho-hum, another awesome week for Ol' Bubbles. Of course that's what you've come to expect. Only one game prevented me from being perfect two weeks in a row, and shucks, I didn't mind missing that one. I predicted the Boys of Athens would topple the Mounties and the gang from the South rose to the challenge. Good for them. Had the Mounties fallen it could've been the beginning of a long slide. Tough loss for the Blue and Gold though. We'll get to see how well they can or can't rebound this week.

    For the season, I'm cruising at 22-6. I know. It doesn't get much better than that.

  • Bubbles rolls
to perfection
    Thursday, September 18, 2014 7:45 PM
    Hello Sports Fans.

    What's the only thing better than a perfect week for ol' Bubbles? A county rivalry week, that's what!

    Yeah, yeah, we all know that I'm having - in the immortal words of Gene Conard, a helluva year. I was perfect last week once again and for the season stand at a gaudy 19-5 record. But listen, let me set the record straight. No, Trump Casino in Atlantic City did not close this week because of me. Sure, I was there. Yes, I did a little playing of the odds. But I'll deny any connection that my time there caused them financial distress. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    So let's get to rivalry week.

    Hello world!

    It's a huge week in the Sagamore football ranks, so let's waste no time.

    We'll have a clash this week between Crawfordsville and Southmont that won't go very far in deciding the final outcome of the conference, but it might be one of the best games of the week.

    This game is going to be interesting for a lot of reasons. The teams don't have styles that clash. Southmont packs it in and runs the ball to try to set up some big hits with the pass. Crawfordsville spreads it out a little bit and tries to get the ball into open space.

    Neither team has done a very good job at stopping the others' type of offense so far this year. So this could very well be a shootout.

    As strange as it may sound, the Mounties have all the momentum right now. Sure, they lost 21-0 to Lebanon last week. But it was 7-0 most of the game and South had scoring opportunities to tie and take the lead. Lebanon has the best defense in the conference. Southmont will be able to capitalize this week.

    LEBANON-There's no such thing as a moral victory.

    That was the message from Southmont coach Desson Hannum after the Mounties' 21-0 loss at Lebanon Friday.

    But it's hard to argue that the Mounties made strides in the game.

    "We're in it to play as hard as we can. And I think that is probably THE best effort I have gotten from the team all season," Hannum said. "We talked before the game about needing all 11 people to do their job. I think we got what we needed out of all 11 people."

    On paper, the teams were nearly identical. Lebanon (2-2, 1-1 SAC) gained 257 yards of total offense to Southmont 240.

    The difference was Lebanon kept Southmont out of the endzone.

    "The defense we played tonight was bend, don't break," Lebanon head coach Kent Wright said. "The coverages we played allowed them to get some stuff underneath, but when it comes to it we're going to make a stop."

    Southmont converted two fourth-down plays during their second possession of the third quarter and got all the way down to the Tiger 10-yard line before finally running out of magic.
