For sixth week in a row, St. Edward 

presents vast “turnaround” season, 

tops Benedictine at home, 45-0

October 2, 2010


LAKEWOOD – The St. Edward powerful football machine bowled over another obstacle in its path and created some new believers. St. Edward defeated Benedictine 45-0 in this long-time rivalry game between these two Catholic schools.

It didn’t take long for the Eagles to establish their dominance scoring 21 points in each of the first two quarters for the easy win at Lakewood Stadium. The Bengals did not help their cause with costly mistakes.

With a 6-0 record, the Eagles are just about assured of making another appearance in the state playoffs. And their best football has yet to be played.

Ranked as one of the top teams in Ohio, the Eagles are priming themselves for a playoff run that they hope will result in the first football state playoff title in school history.

St. Edward quarterback Kevin Burke, who had his hand in three Eagles touchdowns, feels no pressure in trying to achieve the first state playoff football title in St. Edward history.

It actually motivates us,” said Burke. “We watch the 2003 football highlight film of the team that lost in the state finals all the time. We want to copy them with their hard work and dedication.”

While Benedictine is suffering through a less-than-stellar 1-5 season, their reputation earned the respect of the St. Edward players and coaching staff.

This game was another step in our program to what we’re trying to achieve,” said Burke. “We did not look at their record.”

The remaining games are part of a meat-grinder schedule that will test the Eagles even further and get them ready for the state playoffs. Next week the Eagles travel to Columbus DeSales followed by games with Cincinnati St. Xavier, Cincinnati Moeller and arch-rival St. Ignatius.

It’s going great right now,” said Burke, “but we have a lot of room to improve. We haven’t peaked yet.”

St. Edward did not waste any time putting points on the board.

After a Bengals punt on their first possession, St. Edward took over on its own 22. Reggie Terrell carried four times before reaching pay dirt, travelling the entire route on just four carries. The big play was a 65 yard run to the Bengals six. Mike Dinunzio kicked the first of six placements.

Recovering a Benedictine fumble on the 24, St. Ed’s took just four plays to score as Ryan Giachetti scored from the one to make it 14-0.

The third touchdown in the first came on a 10-yard scoring pass from Kevin Burke to Quincy Jones that completed a four-play, 43-yard drive.

In the second, Burke got into the scoring column with a 43-yard scoring run. On the kick-off the Bengals fumbled with St. Edward recovering on the 15. On the first play from here, Burke scored his second straight touchdown to make it 35-0.

Reserve back Dwayne Aaron added the final touchdown of the game for the Eagles rumbling 42 yards late in the second.

Dinunzio added a 35-yard field goal late in the third quarter to make the final margin of 45-0.

Ty Wilcosky, Benedictine quarterback and captain, said, “They’re a great team. They run their plays well, they tackle well, and they do a lot of things well. St. Ed’s was much bigger than us. Their size was definitely a factor.”

Despite the loss, Wilcosky was proud of his team.

 “We came out to play and gave a good effort,” he said.

 Just like the score, St. Edward had the edge in the statistical battles. They gained 420 yards in total offense to just 82 for the Bengals.

Dwayne Aaron led all rushers with 19 carries for 128 yards. Senior back Reggie Terrell gained 106 yards on seven carries in limited action.

St. Ed’s piled up 17 first downs to the Bengals three.

Benedictine hurt itself with six fumbles, losing three.

Lake Ridge Lion golfers keep 

roaring; uses sectional title as 

springboard to win today's 13-

team Lorain County title

AVON – Coming off a sectional championship Wednesday, Lake Ridge Academy’s boys’ golf team kept riding the fast train with a championship today at the 13-team Lorain County Athletic Administrators’ Association Tournament, held here on Bob-O-Link Golf Course.

The Lions’ first-place finish was accomplished with an overall team score of 317.

Individual Scores for Lake Ridge included Mitchell Rice (77), Nick Nemetz (77), Spencer Scheeler (79) and Chris Huebler  (84).

Our top three golfers all year long (Mitchell Rice, Nick Nemetz, and Spencer Scheeler) stepped up again with sub-80 rounds,” Lake Ridge coach Andrew Edgar said.  “Mitchell really seems to finding his groove again with his back-to-back overall sectional medalist performance Wednesday and another solid round today.  Nick and Spencer have also been on the brink of more mid-70s golf lately as well.”

Coming off a big week with winning the Division III Sectional at Pine Hills GC on Wednesday, the Lake Ridge boys obviously wanted to come out and show they belonged in the top tier of Lorain County teams.

“I was very proud of our team's ability to focus in tough conditions and play solid golf,” Edgar said.  “I think playing in this past Monday's Edison Invitational at Sawmill Creek GC where the weather and course conditions were also a factor really prepared us mentally for today.”

The last few years, the Lions had somewhat of a letdown at the LCAAA, which falls between Sectionals and Districts, but this year theywere determined to maintain momentum going into Districts next week at Seven Hills CC in Hartville. 

“We know it will take at least this type of balance and effort again next Thursday in order to put ourselves in position to move on to the State tournament with only two teams advancing out of our District,” said Edgar.  “We certainly have taken another positive step forward.”

Oberlin Gives a Yeomen's Effort Against No. 6 Wittenberg; undefeated Spartans next

Oberlin – The Oberlin College football team gave the No. 6 ranked Wittenberg University Tigers all they could handle, but in the end the visitors were able to escape town with 27-21 win over the Yeomen on Homecoming Saturday at Savage Stadium. 

The Yeomen (2-2, 1-2 NCAC) led twice and had a chance to win it in the fourth quarter, but the Tigers were able to survive to run their run to a perfect 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the NCAC.

Making his first start of the season, senior Joey Zebelian displayed great poise throughout the game as he completed 22-of-36 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns. However, he was picked off twice and was sacked five times. 

Tight end Danny Enright was his top pass catcher, snagging six balls for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Drew Mixter was the Yeomen’s top ground gainer with 40 yards on 11 carries. 

On their first possession of the game, the Yeomen had a chance for a big play, but a double reserve pass from Cory Kidd went through the hands of a wide-open receiver. However, it was still the Yeomen who got on the board first as Zebelian orchestrated a 14-play, 80-yard drive that resulted in a 12-yard scoring strike to Enright with 1:47 left in the opening period. 

Unfortunately, the momentum was short-lived cause on the ensuing drive Tigers’ QB Ben Zoeller connected with Josh McKee on a 3rd-and-13 play that went for a 91-yard touchdown. 

Once again it didn’t take long for the Yeomen to respond, taking advantage of a roughing the punter call that gave them an automatic first down on the Tigers’ 24-yardline. On the next play following the penalty, Oberlin went for paydirt as Zebelian found Adam Niec on a skinny post in the middle of the end zone for the Yeomen TD to make it 14-7. 

The Tigers bounced back with a 7-play, 70-yard drive to tie the game and would add a field goal in the final minute of the half to lead 17-14 at the break. 

Wittenberg controlled the third quarter clock and the scoreboard by adding 10 points during the 10:24 it possessed the ball. 

Trailing by 13, the Yeomen wouldn’t go down without a fight as they would march 62 yards on 12 plays in 6:34 with the end result being a 10-yard full-extension TD-catch by Enright in the corner of the end zone to get OC within six, 27-21.

Following the score exactly four minutes remained in the game and the Yeomen elected to kick it deep to see if their defense could get a stop with one timeout at their disposal. Following one first down by the Tigers, Oberlin forced the Tigers to punt it away with 1:06 to go in the contest. Oberlin took control at its own 44-yardline following an eight-yard return by David Kalgren

On the first play of the possession Ryan Harvey caught a 10-yard pass for a first down to move the ball in to Tigers’ territory. Following two incomplete passes, Zebelian found Kidd for an 11-yard gain on 3-and-10, but following the play Oberlin got flagged for a personal foul call that moved ball back to midfield. Following the penalty, a hook-and-ladder play resulted in another first down, but on the next play Zebelian fumbled after being hit, which effectively ended the game.

Kalgren led the defensive with eight tackles, while Adam Wigren had two sacks for a total of nine yards. Kidd punted 5 times and placed three inside the 20, with his long covering 55 yards. 

Oberlin will look to continue to play inspired football when Case Western Reserve comes to Savage Stadium next week for a 1 p.m. meeting.

Miller Throws to New Heights, but 'Berg Falls

Oct. 2

By Morgan Hawley

Bexley, Ohio – October 2, 2010 – Heidelberg University’s offense exploded for 652 yards behind the arm of senior signal caller Andrew Miller (Dalton, Ohio / Dalton), but its valiant effort fell just short of the win column at Capital University. At the final horn, the host Crusaders posted a 60-50 win. Heidelberg stands at 1-3 overall and 0-3 in the Ohio Athletic Conference, while the Crusaders stand at 2-2 and 2-1.

Heidelberg’s offensive explosion came on the heels of a week full of adversity as it suddenly lost a member of its football family on Monday morning with the passing of assistant coach Jason Bendekovic. All the players donned a sticker on their helmets that read JB in honor of their coach.

The offensive line, which was guided by Coach Bendo, paved the way for Miller’s career outing.  Miller completed 30-of-52 passes for 569 yards, both of which are career marks. His new career marks topped his previous best of 29 receptions and 423 yards that he set a week prior. His 569 yards set a new single game record, topping Jim Newland’s mark of 487 set in 1994. The 30 completions ties the single game mark set by Shane Fulton in 1985.

Not to be outdone, Miller threw for seven touchdowns which topped his own single game mark of six which he threw for against Muskingum University in 2008. For his career Miller now has 57 passing touchdowns, which is a new Heidelberg record. Last week he threw for four to tie the mark of 50 held by Fulton (1983-86).

Within the OAC, Miller topped the single game record book today as well. His 569 yards topped Newland’s OAC record. Miller also picked up 18 yards on the ground, and combined with his passing, finished with 587 total offensive yards to set a new OAC single game record. He topped Newland’s record of 587 from 1994.

Leading Miller into the Heidelberg, and OAC annuals, was two 100-yard receivers. It was the second consecutive game that seniors Mike Preston (Euclid, Ohio / Euclid) and MarioWalton (Elyria, Ohio / Elyria) topped the 100-yard receiving mark. Preston finished with 182 yards on 10 receptions with two touchdowns, while Walton had a career-high 154 yards in six catches with two scores.

On the ground, freshman Germany Woods (Cleveland, Ohio / St. Edward) led the way with 63 yards.

Senior place kicker Jesse Hawkins (Georgetown, Ky. / Scott County) was a perfect 6-for-6 in point afters to increase his Heidelberg career record to 98. A week ago Hawkins topped the career mark of 90 held by Rusty Bartley (1972-75).

In the end, Capital amassed 559 yards, recording 330 passing and 220 rushing. As a team, the Berg finished with 29 first downs, with 20 passing. Its 20 passing first downs set a new team single game record, topping its mark of 16 which the team threw for a week ago. Miller’s passing mark for completions tied the single game team record, while the team set a new passing record behind Miller’s arm.

On the opposite side of the ball, junior linebacker Andy Fadenholz (Grafton, Ohio / Keystone) had a career outing. He totaled 23 tackles for a new career high. Included in the mix were 17 solo stops. Backing Fadenholz was sophomore strong safety Justin Stewart (Maplewood, Ohio / Sidney) with a career-best nine tackles. Fellow classmate, and linebacker, Craig Sykes (Centerburg, Ohio / Centerburg) had a career day with nine tackles.

Picking off a pass apiece for the secondary for the second straight outing was the sophomore duo of Tyler Levanduski (Amherst, Ohio / Steele) and Travis Coates (Columbus, Ohio / Beechroft)


Capital and Heidelberg opened the game trading interceptions with a touchdown apiece sandwiched between to get things started. A first quarter that lasted nearly 45 minutes closed with the Crusaders finding the end zone twice more to hold a 12-7 lead.  Scoring for Heidelberg in the first quarter was Preston on a 60-yard TD strike from Miller.

In the second quarter, Capital and Heidelberg scored on its first two possessions each. Heidelberg went 53 yards in 1:04 and capped the drive with Jozey Hill’s (Bloomington, Ind. / Bloomington North) first touchdown of the year. Miller found Hill in the back of the end zone for a one-yard TD reception. Hawkins followed with the PAT to make the score 18-14 in favor of Capital.

Capital scored yet again and connected on its first PAT of the day to take a 25-14 lead before Miller and Preston hooked up for the second time. Woods got things started with a 34 yard run. Walton and Mario Escalante (Highland Heights, Ky. / Newport Central Catholic) had receptions of 16 and 23 yards, respectively, with a Woods 11-yard run sandwiched between to set up a Preston 10-yard touchdown. Hawkins followed with the PAT to pull Heidelberg within four at 25-21.  

Heidelberg’s Justin Suddeth (Warren, Ohio / Howland) forced a fumble on Capital’s next possession to lead to an eventual ’Berg score. Walton caught a pass across the middle and got loose from the secondary for a 50-yard touchdown reception to give the Berg control of the scoreboard, 28-25, with 6:10 left in the first half.

Capital closed out the scoring in the half with a two-yard touchdown reception from Ryan Gunnarson with 17 seconds left. The point after was good to give the host Crusaders a 32-28 lead at the intermission.

The second half started similar as the first 30 minutes of play. Both sides scored every time they had the ball in the quarter. Capital opened with a scoring drive to go ahead 39-28, but the Berg responded. Miller rolled out of the pocket on a fourth down in the red zone and scrambled for a first down before connecting with Walton for a 12-yard score. Hawkins’ PAT was good and Capital held a slim 39-35 lead.

Capital scored on an eight-yard run to extend its lead to 46-35 before James Sheahan (Painesville, Ohio / Lake Catholic) scored on a 35-yard reception from Miller. It was the second straight outing that Sheahan found the end zone, marking his first collegiate scores. Heidelberg pulled within a field goal, 46-43, following a two point conversion. Miller pitched the ball to Brad Jones (Lorain, Ohio / Southview) to complete the two-point conversion.

In the final quarter of play, Capital held a 14-7 advantage to pull away with the victory. Scoring for the Berg in the quarter was Josh Lynch (Dayton, Ohio / Meadowdale). The sophomore wide receiver had an 18-yard touchdown reception to mark his first trip to the end zone for his caree

After the Pioneer defense pinned the Yellow Jackets to their own goal line and a subsequent punt, Marietta closed to within 7-3 with 1:28 left in the first quarter when junior PK Kyle Cardwell kicked a 46-yard field goal to cap an eight-play and 13-yard drive in 3:49.

B-W increased its lead to 9-2 with a safety at the 10:36 mark of the second quarter when the Pioneer long snapper snapped the ball over their punter’s head for a 34-yard loss, and when a B-W player tried to pick up the ball in the endzone, he fumbled it out the back of the endzone for the safety.

Following the free kick after the safety, B-W travelled 60 yards in six plays in 2:50 and O’Rourke scored on a one-yard sneak and Pollock added the PAT kick for a 16-3 lead.

Marietta took the opening kickoff of the second half and went 74 yards in eight plays in 4:04 to score a touchdown at the 10:50 mark when junior QB Andrew Keller threw a nine-yard scoring pass to sophomore wide receiver Kirby Harris. B-W then blocked the PAT kick to make the score 16-9.

B-W made the score 32-9 just 14 seconds later when junior cornerback Matt Bowen (Tiffin/ Columbuan) picked off a Keller aerial at the 24-yard line and went untouched into the endzone.  Pollock’s kick was blocked, ending a streak of 22 consecutive successful PAT kicks dating back to last season.

B-W scored its final TD with 1:39 left in the game to make the final count 39-9 when senior RB Kyrell Crook (Columbus/ DeSales) sped six yards to paydirt to cap a six-play and 53-yard drive in 3:10. Pollock also added his seventh PAT kick of the game.

Allegheny; Regular Season 

Win Streak Now at 35 Games

By Nick Minerd

CLEVELAND (U District) – Junior linebacker Jacob Adams (Cincinnati, OH/Princeton) blocked the potential game-tying extra point in overtime as the Case Western Reserve University football team earned a 24-23 victory versus Allegheny College (PA) on Homecoming Saturday, October 2, at Case Field.

With the win, the Spartans improve to 4-0 overall and have now won 35 consecutive regular season games. Case returns to action on Saturday, October 9 at Oberlin College at 1:00 p.m. With the loss, Allegheny falls to 2-2 for the season.

For the game, the Spartan defense forced two turnovers, recorded a season-high six sacks, and blocked a pair of kicks. In addition to the defensive effort, senior quarterback Joey Baum (Dalton, OH/Walsh Jesuit) completed 31-of-40 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns. Seniorwide receiver Zach Homyk (Chicago, IL/St. Ignatius Prep) recorded a career-high 14 receptions for 130 yards and a score.

The Spartans took the opening drive 65 yards on 15 plays and capped a seven-minute drive when Baum connected on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Homyk.

The Gators got on the board with 3:02 left in the first half when Andy Zipf connected on a 29-yard field goal to cap an eight-play, 43-yard drive that took 3:23 off of the clock.

Case added to its lead right before half when it marched 65 yards on seven plays and scored when Baum hooked up with senior wide receiver Shaun Nicely (Willoughby, OH/South) for a four-yard TD with 1:19 left on the clock. Senior Sam Coffey’s (Middletown, OH/Lakota East) point after made the score 14-3 heading into the half.

Allegheny threatened to cut into the lead in the third quarter, but was turned away when the six-foot, two-inch Homyk blocked a Zipf 24-yard field goal attempt with 7:30 left in the period. The Gators were able to redeem themselves two possessions later when Zipf hit a 36-yard field goal to cap a six-play, 34-yard drive and make the score 14-6 with 1:17 left in the third.

The Spartans added some insurance in the fourth quarter when Coffey connected on a 35-yard field goal to make the score 17-6 with 11:06 left to play. The score ended a six-play, 13-yard drive that was set up by an interception by senior defensive back James Wodicka (West Lafayette, IN/West Lafayette).

With Case looking to put the game away, Allegheny forced a fumble deep in its own territory and safety Sid Facaros returned it 76 yards to bring the score to 17-15. The Gators then converted atwo-point conversion when quarterback T.J. Salopek hooked up with wide out David Strawser.

Both sides then failed to score on their following possessions and Case went into overtime for the first time since 2007.
In the extra frame, Case received the first possession and found the end zone when Baum and Nicely hooked up for a second time on a third-and-two from the six yard line to make the score 23-17. Coffey added the PAT to make the score 24-17.

On the next possession, Allegheny answered with a third-and-goal score when Salopek found wide out Terry Hartford on a five-yard TD pass. However, the Spartans broke through the Allegheny line on the PAT try and Adams sealed the deal with his first career block.
For Case, Nicely totaled eight receptions for 83 yards and two key TDs. Defensively, Adams totaled 12 tackles and a forced fumble while senior linebacker Lucas Sasala (Kittaning, PA/Kittaning) recorded 12 stops and a half sack.
