September 20th A Bleak Day For The Montpelier Locomotives Versus Swanton

Early Advantage Stands As Toledo Christian Downs Hilltop 25-10

A TIME TO RUN ... Keegan Hitzeman of Montpelier tries to sidestep a Swanton defender and outrun another.


UNLEASH THE DIESEL ... Fullback Miklo Abner takes the handoff from Cadet quarterback, Quinn Smith. By: Timothy Kays THE VILLAGE REPORTER The final score might not indicate it, but the Hilltop Cadets are learning from their growing pains. On September 20 versus TAAC rival Toledo Christian, the Cadet Cadre learned to adjust for superior team speed. Unfortunately for the hometown boys, the adjustment arrived too late to compensate for a 25-point hole as the Eagles came away with a 25-10 win over the Cadets. The Hilltop vulnerability to the option is apparently the worst kept secret in the state, and TC quarterback Brett Freeman was quick to take advantage of the situation. On their opening possession, the Cadets got a first down on a Quinn Smith to Chad Champion pass, but the drive fizzled. The snap to punter Miklo Abner sailed over his head, and the ball was downed at the Hilltop four. On the first play, Freeman took the snap and ran around the left end for a touchdown with 9:48 remaining in the first. The PAT failed, but TC had an early lead that they would not surrender. Hilltop took over at their own 20. Runs by Champion and Abner brought the ball out to the 45. Facing a second and 17, Smith ran for 15, and Champion picked up the first down with a run of three. The drive died there though, forcing a punt that had the promise of pinning the Eagles deep in their own territory. Abner did his part by forcing the TC returner back inside his own five to field the ball, but poor special teams pursuit on the part of Hilltop allowed the returner to find the left corner and sprint up the sideline where he was finally stopped just short of midfield... opportunity lost. It took Freeman and the Eagles just three running plays to push the Cadets back inside their own five. The Cadets regrouped and held, and with the help of an illegal motion call, they pushed the Eagles back to the 10. On the first play after the penalty though, Freeman again pulled the ball down and took off for another score with 1:48 left in the first. The first pass of the night for the Eagles, a two-point PAT attempt, fell incomplete, but the first period ended with the Cadets looking at a 12-0 deficit. Hilltop was unable to move the ball and again punted it away. Again the Eagles moved the ball on the ground down to the Hilltop 31. From there the second pass of the evening from Freeman found a receiver all alone in the secondary. By the time he was stopped, TC had a first and goal at the nine. Again fortune smiled on the Cadets as a first down sweep lost almost four. On second down, Freeman rolled to his left, only to slip on the rain-slicked Daft Field turf, bringing up a third and goal from the 18. The next play saw the Cadets lead-footed and awaiting a run, leaving a receiver all alone at the goal line. The pass made it an 18-0 game with 7:34 left in the half, and the ensuing PAT kick made it 19-0. Hilltop got the ball back at their 20, and went three and out. Abners punt was partially deflected, with the ball rolling dead at the TC 48. A pass interference call moved the ball to the Cadet 25. It was shortly afterward that Freeman ran the ball in from four yards out to make it a 25-0 game with 1:48 left in the half. The PAT failed, and the half ended with the hometown boys staring down a 25-0 shutout. In the second half, the Cadet defense carried forward what they were beginning to display late in the first half... stay at home pursuit. Led by Cayden Blaisdell, the line was not allowing Freeman to bust off big plays with his legs, and also giving him plenty to think about on the five step drop. The Hilltop offense, sluggish during the first half, remained sluggish in the third, but they did not have costly drivekilling gaffes as they did earlier. Hilltop took the ball at their own 20 and slowly, methodically drove the ball downfield for the remainder of the period. TC had the answer though, foiling the Cadets with a goal line stand that forced a turnover on downs at the one. As Holgate found out the week prior, it is one thing to celebrate a stand inside the five against Hilltop...it is far and away another thing to capitalize on it. A handoff to the running back brought the dj vu voodoo back for the Hilltop defense as the ball carrier was swallowed up in a sea of red for a safety. The Cadets failed to get six, but they busted up the shutout with two points. The Eagles tried to get the momentum back with the pass, but the line pressure kept Freeman from standing in the pocket. Under pressure, he uncorked an errant pass that was picked off by Austin Batt at the Hilltop 47. The Cadets again worked the ball into the TC defense, but with time running short, they too went to the air. It was then that Smith found Batt with a pass to the TC ten. With the Eagles defense now on their heels, Abner took the handoff on the next play and ran it in for the score with 7:02 remaining in the game. Abner then ran in the twopoint PAT to make it a 25-10 game. Neither offense was able to mount a threat from that point forward. Hilltop outgained the Eagles on the ground and in the air. Most of this was done after adjustments were made, and mental mistakes were minimalized. The 79-yard drive that stalled on the TC one was a prime example. Once the defense began to stay at home and pursue, the Eagles offense slowed down dramatically. As an example after hitting on two big pass plays early, Freeman finished the game by going 5 of 14 for 95 yards, a score and 2 picks. Its not that Hilltop is not getting it, its just that by the time that they do, theyre already in a hole...but that too is improving. Smith was 10 of 29 for 125 yards through the air. Champion pulled in 4 passes for 40 yards, and gained 40 yards on the ground in 8 carries. Batt caught a pass for 33 yards; Grapengeter caught 2 for 28 yards, and ran twice for 7 yards, and Trent Taylor snagged a pair for 24 yards. Smith ran 7 times for 35 yards, but the workhorse was Abner as the diesel ran 20 times for 100 yards. Hilltop goes on the road next week to bring their TAAC tour to Ottawa Hills.

SWANTON - There are days in which so many things go awry, you just want to walk away, go back to bed, and try to reboot the day using the version 2.0 upgrade. Montpelier had such a day on September 20. Cloudy, dismal, and perpetual rain followed the Locos team bus to Lucas County, but the destination was to face a vulnerable Swanton that was not only winless, but coming off a 62-19 humbling against Wauseon. If there was a time to strike...this was it. Or was it?

The Bulldogs took the meteorological misery of the evening, added a measure of purple pain, and unleashed it on the Locos. The Bulldogs looked anything but down and damaged as they hurled a 34-0 shutout at the Locos. The game was not the only hurting suffered by the team on this evening. Their stat tracking software gave up the ghost during the game, resulting in a statistical blackout of everything but the final score. Coming to town on September 27 will be the Bryan Golden Bears.

Northwood Rangers Offense Runs Roughshod Over The Edon Blue Bombers
By: Kent Hutchison THE VILLAGE REPORTER NORTHWOOD- The Edon Blue Bombers took the long bus ride east of Toledo to do battle with the defending TAAC champion Northwood Rangers. After jumping out to an 8-0 lead, the Bombers had to battle a steady downpour along with the offensive onslaught of the Rangers. Edon gave up over 500 yards of offense to Northwood en route to a 40-27 loss. The opening kickoff was received by Edon. The Bombers covered 85 yards in nine plays and chewed 3:20 off the clock for a touchdown. The drive was capped when Trevor Green raced 30 yards to paydirt. Edon faked the extra point attempt as Kaden Sapp found Brock Thiel all alone to take an 8-0 lead with 8:40 left in the first quarter. On Northwoods first position Edon held the Rangers to a three and out, and after the punt took over at their 39 yard line. The Bombers were once again on the attack moving the ball in the positive direction. However, two holding penalties during the drive left Edon facing a 4 and 12 from the Edon 47 yard line. After a timeout, the Bombers decided to go for it. The gamble did not pay off for Edon as the pass by Sapp was intercepted and returned to the Edon 39 yard line. The decision really backfired as Northwood marched the 39 yards needed in six plays for a score. The PAT was good cutting the Edon advantage to 8-7. Edon was held short of a first down and Mike Peeples punted the ball back to the Rangers. Northwood was in process of moving the ball as the first quarter expired. With 10:33 remaining in the second quarter, the Rangers crossed the goal line once again to take the lead 14-8 after the extra point kick sailed through the uprights. The Bombers needed little time to answer. When Sapp hit Thiel for a 31 yard touchdown, and Peeples nailed the kick, Edon was back on top 15-14 with 8:18 left in the second stanza. Northwood responded with two consecutive scores to close the half and up their lead to 26-15. After Northwood took the kickoff to begin the second half, the Bomber defense responded with a three and out. The Ranger punt left Edon on their side of midfield. The Bombers methodically moved the ball down to the Northwood six yard line, but left themselves facing a fourth and four. A false start penalty moved the pigskin back five more yards. This time taking the risk on fourth down paid huge dividends as Connor Hug scooped a toss from Sapp off the turf for six points. Peeples kick was true once again leaving Edon trailing 26-21. The Rangers appeared to be poised to put more points on the board as they moved the ball to the Bomber 36 yard line. However, faced with a fourth and one, Heath Brown and a host of Bombers stuffed the run to halt the drive with 4:46 left in the third quarter. The Edon offense sprinted back on the field after the stop and took possession at their 39 yard marker. In six plays the Bombers moved the ball down to the Northwood 45. However, a loss of five yards on 3rd and 7 to go forced Edon to punt. Peeples hit the ball well as it rolled out of bounds at the Northwood 15 yard line. After one play by the Rangers the quarter ended. The final frame started with a bang for the Rangers as they added to the point total on an 84 yard TD pass that was tipped by the Bombers. The extra point was good putting Northwood up by 12 points, 33-21. Just when it appeared the Bombers were back in the game, their fortune went from bad to worse. On the ensuing kickoff the Northwood kicker almost whiffed the ball, but a Ranger teammate fell on the unintentional onside kick. Northwood needed just two plays to cross the goal line once again to up essentially put the game away increasing the lead to 40-21. However, the men in blue and silver were not ready to give up just yet as they started the series at their 23 yard line. In less than a minute, and in four plays, the Bombers moved the ball to midfield. The duo of Sapp to Hug struck once again to cover the final fifty yards. However, the two point attempt was unsuccessful leaving Edon trailing 40-27 with only 3:07 left in the contest. As they had done all night, Northwood continued churning up yards on the ground. The Rangers had no problem moving the ball deep in Edon territory to run out the clock and end the hopes of the Bombers. Kaden Sapp had another respectable night for Edon as he completed 18 of 33 attempts for 265 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also scampered for 90 yards on 15 carries. Trevor Green added 48 rushing yards, including one touchdown. Connor Hug added two touchdown catches for the Bombers and Brock Thiel one score via the air. Once again penalties were an Achilles heel for Edon as they were flagged 8 times for a loss of 60 yards. The loss drops Edon to 2-2 on the season.

PLAYING TAKEAWAY ... Wauseons Noah Castle (11) tries to strip the ball from a Delta ball carrier. By: Bill Bray THE VILLAGE REPORTER The magical connection of Ty Suntken to Kris Boysel was the saving grace for Wauseon in Friday's last minute 20-13 victory over the Delta Panthers. For 47 minutes and 18 seconds the Wauseon Indians trailed the Panthers. Their fourth straight win was in serious jeopardy as the clock wound down to 42 seconds. At that point the sea parted and Suntken found Boysel in the northeast corner of the end zone for the game winner. Up to the exciting conclusion it was the Wauseon defense led by Aaron Schuette, Axel Bueter, Cesar Juarez, Nate Suntken, Alec Vonier, Derek Rupp, Noah Castle, Anthony Werder, Zac Robinson, Kris Boysel and Jake Flory that stepped up to the plate and had their best performance of the season. The first half stats showed the dominance of Delta for the first 24 minutes. The Panthers had possession of the ball 15:46 compared to 8:14 for the Indians. They had accumulated 151 yards rushing and threw the air during that time. Delta drew first blood with 6:17 left in the opening stanza. In their first possession of the game, Delta used 11 plays to move 62 yards to the first score with a 31 yard run by Dylan Norstrant. Ethan Edwards' extra point kick was no good and the Panthers were up 6-0. On the Indians first possession of the game and first play, Suntken threw an interception as Dylan Norstrant returned the ball to the Wauseon 48 yard line. The Indians defense had their first stop as Norstrant's dive to get the one yard needed on fourth down was thwarted. The sputtering Wauseon offense was again forced to punt on their next possession and Delta set up shop at their own 10-yard line. The Panthers struggled to move the ball 15 yards on their next four snaps. Then on a third and five, Noah Parsons' pass was picked off by the ever present Boysel and the senior gave the Indians the ball back on their own 42 yard line. After a 18 yard gain by Bueter, Suntken was thrown for a two-yard loss then he threw an incomplete pass to make it a third and 12 at the Delta 42. On the third down play, Suntken found Axel Bueter with a pass and the senior back galloped all the way into the end zone as the Indians tied the game at 6-6 when Josh Whitcomb's kick sailed wide right with 8:49 remaining in the first half. With both offenses struggling as the rains came and made the field wetter and wetter, the Panthers got the next break when Suntken fumbled and a Delta defender jumped on the loose ball with 1:44 left in the half. Delta took advantage of the Wauseon error as they scored in just four plays with a 16 yard sprint by Jesse Beverly. Edwards' kick was good and the Panthers went to the locker room with a 13-6 lead. After deferring the kickoff to the second half, Wauseon came out for their first possession of the second half. The Indians, penalized eight times for 66 yards, saw the drive end on their own 45 yard line. Delta's first drive was a three and out as the defense continued their excellent play. The Panthers three plays netted seven yards and they were forced to punt. The teams traded unsuccessful drives as Wauseon' high power offense continued to struggle through the third quarter. With a 13-6 deficit, if the Indians were to win, they were going to have to have a spectacular fourth quarter on the wet and rainy Harmon Field turf. After a six-play drive gave the Panthers only nine yards. The Indians had possession for the first time in the final quarter. After a Bueter six-yard run, Suntken ran twice for five yards and a first down at the Delta 46. Two more runs by Bueter gaining 12 yards and the offense was finally beginning to play their brand of football. After an illegal procedure penalty on Noah Castle, The ball was moved back five yards. From there Suntken ran for four yards then, on the play of the drive, found his favorite receiver Boysel for a 29 yard strike that put the ball on the two yard line. Suntken bolted in for the score on the next snap and at the 7:35 mark of the fourth, the Indians were back to within one at 13-12. Coach Travis Cooper made the decision to go for two points but the Panthers defense stuffed the play and dropped Suntken short of the goal line. Delta took possession with 7:35 left and put together a 10-play drive. They came up empty however as the Wauseon defense again did their jobs as on a fourth and five Delta's Noah Parsons threw an incomplete pass to end the drive and turn the ball over with 2:58 remaining. It would be Wauseon's finally opportunity to somehow pull out the victory after trailing for most of the game. THE DRIVE started on the Wauseon 27 yard line. Ty Suntken had the pressure of the community on his shoulders as he stood in shot gun formation to attempt to win the game. On the first play, Suntken raced 11 yards to the Wauseon 38. A personal foul on the Panthers tacked on another 15 yards to the Delta 47. Boysel rushed for three yards, Suntken ran for no gain, Suntken found Boysel for a nine-yard pass giving the Indians a very important first down. Suntken spiked the ball to stop the clock with 1:59 left. On second and 10, Suntken hit Zac Robinson for 12 yards. Robinson nearly broke it for a touchdown but was tripped up at the Delta 23. Suntken scrambled on the next play and lost 19 yards back to the Delta 40. With the game clock ticking away Suntken calmly fell back in the pocket and looked long for Boysel. The pass was perfectly executed and hit Boysel right in the hands as the receiver grabbed the ball out of the rain soaked air and fell into the end zone for the winning score with :42 seconds remaining. Suntken hit Castle across the middle with for the two-point conversion and the Indians had their second straight NWOAL victory 20-13. Unofficially Suntken finished with 65 yards on 21 carries while Bueter finished with 61 yards on 11 carries. Suntken was 10 of 17 passing for 157 yards and two scores. Boysel was the leading receiver hauling in six receptions for 88 yards and the winning touchdown catch. The Indians now turn their attention to the Liberty Center Tigers who fell to Patrick Henry Friday night. Game time is set for 7PM at Harmon Field.

Proof of the point has been replayed over and over this season, and it was made evident again at the Ottawa Glandorf Invitational on September 14 where Sauder finished second and Hostetler third. Combined with a seventh place finish from Nichole Foor, the Lady Blackbirds finished third in team competition in the event. Several other local schools were also present and accounted for at the OGI, but they competed at less than team strength. Mya Suarez placed 29th to lead the Wauseon lady Indians, while Brookelynn Brown led the North Central Lady Eagles, and Gabriella Cox was first across for the Lady Locos of Montpelier. The following local finishes were recorded by place and time... 3 - Pettisville - 117 2 - Elizabeth Sauder - Pettisville 12:25.4 3 - Kamryn Hostetler - Pettisville 12:44.1 7 - Nichole Foor - Pettisville - 13:09.3 29 - Mya Suarez - Wauseon - 14:03.8 36 - Sarah Herring - Pettisville 14:16.4 70 - Anna Koenig - Wauseon - 15:37.6 71 - Brookelynn Brown - No. Central 15:38.7 72 - Gabriella Cox - Montpelier 15:41.3 74 - Alivia Maas - Montpelier - 15:46.1 133 - Mya Nicole Riley - Wauseon 18:22.6 138 - Gretchen Lee - Pettisville 18:55.7 141 - Kendi Nofziger - Pettisville 19:31.6 146 - Katie Hauter - Pettisville 20:09.3

Pettisville Rules September 17th Edon Jamboree

EDON - It is understandable to hear statements saying that the Pettisville Ladybirds ruled the roost at the September 17 BBC Jamboree because they were the only school present with a full team. One thing must be taken fully into account though. It matters nothing if you have three runners in the field, or thirty...when the first three runners into the chute are all wearing the colors of the same school, good things are bound to happen for that school, team strength or not. Elizabeth Sauder, Kamryn Hostetler and Nichole Foor of Pettisville clocked in 1-2-3, nine seconds apart to lead the Ladybirds to the win in the first of the BBC Jamborees. Hilltop finished in second place, with North Central taking third. Edon bested Stryker for fourth place by three points, and Fayette placed sixth. The following finishes were recorded by place and time... 1 - Pettisville - 23 2 - Hilltop - 59 3 - North Central - 67 4 - Edon - 71 5 - Stryker - 74 6 - Fayette - 79 1 - Elizabeth Sauder - P - 12:09 2 - Kamryn Hostetler - P - 12:12 3 - Nichole Foor - P 12:18 4 - Landrey Brown - H 13:02 5 - Wendy Braun - E 13:04 6 - Sarah Herring - P 13:23 7 - Kara Brown - H 13:43 8 - Keyndal Hudson - S 14:01 9 - Brooke Brown - N 14:17 10 - Vada Lashaway - N - 14:37 11 - Gretchen Lee - P 16:52 12 - Kendi Nofziger - P 18:27 13 - Tressa Taylor - F 18:29 14 - Katie Hauter - P 18:55

Area Athletic News

A Note About The Junior High Team Photos
By: Timothy Kays, Sports Editor There is nothing quite as stressful to an athletic director than arranging and scheduling a media day for their sports teams. Three times a year they take place, and coincidently three times a year the patience of an athletic director is taxed by everything from kids forgetting their uniforms to forgetting their shoes. Sometimes, the kids even forget that they should show up for the picture taking event. Some schools have only their high school athletes up for media day pictures, and still others bring up their junior high teams for pictures at the same event. As the Hometown Huddle is the only area publication to give junior high teams equal access to coverage as their Varsity brothers and sisters, we are more than ready to get their team pictures for publication in our pages. Their hard work should be rewarded with recognition, just like their high school contemporaries. For those schools that do not have a combined high school/junior high school media day, we make a special trip for a special media day. Unfortunately, not every team is available for the specially scheduled day. As a small town newspaper with a small staff, we simply cannot make repeated trips to get pictures of these teams...we just do not have the personnel. As we begin publication of our area junior high teams, it should be noted that despite the best efforts of the Hometown Huddle and the athletic directors of the schools that we serve, there are some team photos missing. We apologize if one of more of the missing team pictures is one that you were hoping to see. It is our goal to provide coverage and recognition to these kids and their teammates. When it came down to crunch time though, we simply could not arrive on a scheduling solution.
