    Controlling the clock and maximizing the possessions is the only thing on the mind of Southmont head coach Desson Hannum.

    “Tri-West (Hendricks) has athletes at a number of different positions.” Hannum said. “We want to try and make them one-dimensional as much as possible.”

    If Danville’s head coach, Russ Sumner, wanted to show his young football team what it takes to become an elite squad, he found the right team to teach them. Unfortunately the lesson was a painful one at the hands of their cross county rivals.

    Defending State champion Tri-West defeated the Warriors here on Friday, 59-13, and held claim to the Helmet Trophy for the third consecutive year.

    The Bruins were paced by Junior quarterback, Jake Hill, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 266 yards, and three touchdowns.

    “We are pretty happy with the outcome, but obviously we are not satisfied with everything we did tonight,” said Bruins head coach Chris Coll. “[Danville] made it kind of tough on us inside. We missed some assign¬≠ments. But we have some big-play guys, and we were able to get some ‘home runs’ on them.”

    Those big plays came in the second quarter with the Bruins already leading 10-0.

    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 Tri-West Bruins did it with quick strikes. The Bruins did it with methodical drives. Mostly, they accomplished it with Wesley Cook carrying the load.

    The Bruins bolted from a halftime tie with the top-ranked Andrean Fighting 59ers and scored 21 consecutive points en route to a 49-27 victory in the Class 3A state championship game. The Bruins won their fourth state crown - 10 years after their last.

    The player behind Tri-West's three straight touchdowns after halftime was Cook, who started the surge by returning the third quarter's opening kickoff 89 yards for a score. That set a new Class 3A record.

    LIZTON -- The Class 3A No. 10 Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles traveled to Lizton to take on the No. 5 Tri-West Bruins on Friday night. The Bruins won 23-15 and will represent the Sagamore Athletic Conference in the 3A semistate on Friday at Heritage Hills.

    The Bruins forced the Golden Eagles into a tough spot after putting pressure on Guerin Catholic's quarterback Matt Labus.

    The Bruins were able to capitalize and score first with a 6-yard touchdown run from junior running back Colton Jobe, which put them up 6-0 going into the second quarter of play.

    DOVER - Although behind, the Western Boone football team was confident they could come back in the second half Friday night against fifth-ranked Tri-West in the sectional title game.

    The Stars trailed by five, but had led for most of the first 24 minutes. The second half was a different story.

    The Bruins scored touchdowns on their first four possessions of the second half and held the Stars to 55 second-half yards, pulling away to a 54-28 victory.

    "They just overwhelmed us in the second half," Western Boone head coach Justin Pelley said. "We made some big plays in the first half and they made some big plays too. We started dropping like flies in the second half, had to move around some guys and they are just really good. They can run the ball and throw the ball and they proved that tonight. We fired everything we had at them in the first half and we had some chances, we were right there in the game. But we only played a first-half of football tonight."

    The game turned in Tri-West's favor late in the first half.

    Trailing 16-14, Western Boone scored a touchdown on a 6-yard pass from Nathanial Bye to Riggs Baxter with 1:48 left in the half to go up 21-16.

    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.

    LIZTON -- The Class 3A No. 6 Tri-West Bruins (8-1, 7-0 SAC) left no doubt why they were the 2014 Sagamore Conference football champions Friday night by beating the Crawfordsville Athenians (2-7, 0-7 SAC) 63-14 on their Senior Night.

    The Bruins dominated the first half of the game by racking up 346-yards on the offensive side of the football, while limiting the Athenians to just 74-yards.

    "We didn't come out ready to play. We weren't playing aggressively, so they got up on us early," said Coach Mike Hammons. "We've got to get back to the drawing board and keep playing hard."

    Junior tailback Wes Cook was a one-man wrecking machine in the first half scoring five touchdowns. Four were rushing touchdowns, on carries of 40, 33, 46 and 17 yards. He also caught a 21-yard pass for a score. He would finish the half, and the game, with 257 all-purpose yards, 236-yards on seven carries, and the one catch.

    "Across the board they're a good team. We thought we could play with them, and be physical with them, but they proved us otherwise," Coach Hammons told The Paper.

    The Athenians limited senior quarterback, and Illinois State recruit, Jake Hendershot to just 96-yards passing on the night, intercepting him twice. Nathaniel Busenbark would take one away in the first half, and Robert Manns would set up the Athenians first scoring opportunity with the second.

    The Crawfordsville Athenians (2-6, 0-6 SAC) will complete their regular season Friday evening at Class 3A No. 6 Tri-West (7-1, 6-0 SAC).

    The Bruins wrapped up the 2014 Sagamore Athletic Conference football championship last Friday with their win over Southmont and North Montgomery's victory over Western Boone.

    "We've got to come out quick. They'll have all the distractions," said Coach Mike Hammons. "They'll want to keep their perfect conference record, and we're going over to try to spoil it."

    The Bruins are led on offense by senior quarterback Jake Hendershot. Hendershot has 1,310 yards passing on the season with a nearly two-to-one touchdown to interception ratio, 15 to 8. He was very efficient last week going 13-14 with three touchdowns and 255-yards.

    Junior Colton Jobe leads the receiving corps with 297 yards on the season. He's followed closely by sophomore's Casey Coll with 272 yards and Judd Grubbs with 268. Junior fullback Wes Cook has 248 yards with four touchdowns.

    The football sectional draw was held Sunday and the games are just two weeks away. The postseason starts Oct. 24 and no matter how the season went, teams have a chance to make a run.

    North Montgomery and Crawfordsville compete in 3A Sectional 29. There are four teams in the sectional that are ranked in either the media or coaches poll.

    In the coaches' poll, Tri-West (7-1) is ranked No. 3. They will take on West Vigo in the opening round. The winner will play either Brebeuf (5-3) or Crawfordsville (2-6). Brebeuf is ranked No. 6 in the coaches' poll.

    "As a team we are focused on this week and will think about sectionals when that gets here, our focus is Tri-West this week," Crawfordsville head coach Mike Hammons responded when asked about the sectional draw.

    On the other side of the bracket, Edgewood (7-1) will take on Greencastle (3-5). The winner will get either Western Boone (6-2) or North Montgomery (5-3).

    NEW MARKET - It was a Senior Night the Mounties will try to quickly forget.

    Jake Hendershot threw for 255 yards on 13-of-14 passing as Tri-West blew out Southmont, 56-0 Friday night.

    From the first snap it was obvious that the Mounties had no answer for the No. 6 Bruins. Wes Cook found the edge and went relatively untouched for a 74-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. The hill was already steep with just 12 second off the clock.

    "We shied away a little bit," Southmont head coach Desson Hannum said. "I don't think we were ready physically to play this Tri-West team tonight. They are a strong, physical team and they showed that tonight. We have a little ways to go before we can get there."

    NEW MARKET - Southmont will face perhaps its toughest test to date when No. 6 Tri-West visits Friday night.

    The Mounties are coming off of two straight losses and will have to slow Jake Hendershot and Co. if they hope to stay in it.

    "They have a lot of skill and have some experience up front offensively," Southmont coach Desson Hannum said. "There's nothing we need to do special. Just play assignment, gap-sound, ready to tackle defense. If we do those things hopefully we can compete and stay in the game."

    Hendershot comes in averaging nearly 170 yards per game through the air.

    On the other side of the ball, Southmont's backfield will likely look more familiar this week. Leading rusher Nathaniel Farabee was a late scratch last week as a preventative measure after a car accident.

  • Tri-West wins battle of ranked Sagamore teams
    Friday, October 3, 2014 9:33 PM
    LIZTON-The odds were stacked against Western Boone Friday night when they traveled to Lizton to face the Class 3A No. 8 Tri-West Bruins.

    The No. 9 Stars were without three starters who play on both sides of the ball, were facing a tough Tri-West team on homecoming and had to deal with numerous questionable calls go against them.

    Western Boone hung tough throughout the game, but ultimately fell to Tri-West 20-13.

    "I am super happy with our kids," Western Boone head coach Justin Pelley said. "They fought hard. This was a good football game. The conditions were not ideal for either team. They like to throw it around so it took them out of their gameplan a little bit and it took us out of ours. Both teams fought really hard and they just got us tonight."

    The loss was the first of the season for Western Boone, dropping them to 6-1 and 4-1 in the Sagamore Athletic Conference. The Bruins are now 6-1 as well, but 5-0 in the Sagamore.

    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.
