Wildcats set to dole out the deal in Dollinger this weekend against Cathedral Prep

By Ed Daugherty

This weekend, St. Ignatius football will travel to Dollinger Field to play Cathedral Preparatory School out of Erie, PA.

Cathedral Prep was founded in 1921 as an all-boys Catholic high school by Archbishop John Mark Gannon of the Diocese of Erie.

Archbishop Gannon’s vision was to provide a college preparatory, Catholic education for young men to strengthen the Catholic faith in Erie, and to act as a conduit for vocations.


GAME PREVIEW


The school was originally located underneath St. Peter Cathedral in what is presently the Prep cafeteria. In 1953, an Auditorium and a three-level classroom addition were constructed as enrollment grew.

The last major addition to the school was the 1964 science wing addition at the corner of 10th & Myrtle in order to accommodate the growth of the school.

Tom Ridge

Famous alumni include former PA Governor & Sect of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge and Harry Markopolos, the whistleblower in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi Scheme case.

The one who put the finger on Madoff, Harry M.

The Ramblers have won ONE PIAA state football championship.

The last time the two teams met, the Wildcats ended a 3-game losing streak by defeating the visiting Cathedral Prep Ramblers 48-19 on Byers Field just a year ago.

For the Wildcats, Bobby Grebenc scored three times and Dan Grace picked up another rushing TD following his 70 yard run down to the 5-yard line QB Matt Hoyer completed 6 of 8 passes for 88 yards. Tyler Kette returned a blocked punt for a TD.

And By Clicking on Oct. 6 A Page


This week, the Ramblers come into the game 4-1 while the Wildcats are a half game better at 5-1.

Last week, St. Ignatius scored its largest margin of victory over a Glenville team since the 1920s, 24-6.

With a dominating 3rd quarter in which St Ignatius scored 17 of its 24 points, the Wildcats moved to halfway to the double-digit-win mark (now at 5-1) with the win over the visiting Glenville Tarblooders JR RB Tim McVey scored two touchdowns in the third quarter (3 yards and 8 yards) and Tim Shenk added his 3rd career FG of 48 yards or longer.

Tim McVey 

The Wildcats got on the board in the first quarter on a 10 yard TD pass from Erik Williams to Tim McCoy and the defense held the talented Glenville offense to just 57 yards passing Glenville's only score came on a 79 yard end-around run late in the 1st half. The PAT was missed.

In its 88 years of high school football, Cathedral Prep has won 536 games and lost fewer than 300 – one fewer, to be exact, 299. Thus, the Wildcats have the chance to deal the Ramblers their 300th lifetime loss.

The Wildcats are 6-4 all-time playing on October 7th.

Forty-four  years ago (1967)  Halfback Frank Gusich recorded one of the best rushing days in St Ignatius history - 28 carries for 201 yards (as of today is tied for the 20th best rushing performance all-time) - as the Wildcats defeated the Holy Name Green Wave, 7-6, at West Tech Field. Gusich would intercept a Namer pass late in the 4th quarter to seal the win, while Dan Werner scored St Ignatius' only TD early into the final quarter.

'BERG FOOTBALL TO FACE UNBEATEN MUSKINGUM 

IN NEW CONDORD SATURDAY


TIFFIN, Ohio-Fresh off a 55-3 win over Capital University on Homecoming last Saturday, the Heidelberg University football team will take to the road Saturday to play undefeated Muskingum University in an Ohio Athletic Conference match in New Concord.  Kickoff from McConagha Stadium is slated
for 1:30 p.m.

The game will be the first gridiron contest of the 2011 season to be broadcast on the 'Berg Athletics Network (www.heidelberg.edu/athletics). Jeff Garvin will have the call.  In addition, live stats for the game will

The Berg enters the contest 3-1 overall and 2-1 in the OAC, both firsts under fifth-year head coach Mike Hallett.  The Fighting Muskies are 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference, also a first for fifth-year head coach Al Logan.


GAME PREVIEW


Saturday's game is expected to be a classic duel between a high-octane offense and a stingy defense.  Heidelberg's offense is nationally ranked in a number of categories, while the Muskingum defense is among the best in the nation.

In their last game, the Student Princes piled on a season-high 584 yards of total offense and scored seven touchdowns, including two scores from sophomore running back/kick returner Cartel Brooks (Kokomo, Ind./Galion), who was named the OAC's special teams player of the week.  Brooks returned the opening kickoff 79 yards for a TD-his second of the season-and scored his first rushing TD as a Student Prince on a 58-yard carry in the fourth quarter.  Through four games this season, Brooks is leading the nation by averaging 49.8 yards per kick return.

The Berg offense averages 37.5 points and 468.2 total yards per game-16th in the nation-including 233 on the ground (23rd) and 235.2 through the air. The Student Princes rank in the top three in the OAC in all four categories.

Leading the ground attack is sophomore second-team All-OAC running back Germany Woods (St. Edward), who is second in the conference and tied for 21st nationally with 122 rushing yards per game. Woods has netted 488 yards this season in 80 attempts for a 6.1 yards per rush average to go with three TDs. 
Lorain's Brad Jones

 Junior running back Brad Jones (Lorain/Southview) (157 yards, 38 attempts, TD) and Brooks (105 yards, 11
attempts, TD) will also see action out of the backfield.

Freshman quarterback Michael Mees (North Ridgeville) will lead the passing attack.  Mees is completing 54.1 percent (60-of-111) of his passes and has thrown for 894 yards and 11 TDs against just three interceptions in his
first four games as a collegian, while his 223.5 passing yards per game rank second in the league.

Among Mees' favorite targets are junior wide receivers Mario Escalante (Highland Heights, Ky./Newport Central Catholic) and Josh Lynch (Dayton/Meadowdale), and senior wide receiver CJ Powell (Detroit, Mich./Bishop Foley), all of whom caught a TD pass from Mees against Capital. Escalante has caught 11 passes for a team-high 261 yards and averages 65.2 yards per game.  Lynch has 11 receptions for 200 yards and tallies 50 yards
per game.  Powell has 10 catches for 163 yards and a team-high four TDs and averages 40.8 yards per game.

No. 1/2 Miami Hosts Bemidji State in Season Opener

RedHawks welcome Beavers Friday and Saturday to start 2011-12

THE GAME
No. 1/2 Miami begins the 2011-12 season Friday and Saturday with home contests against Bemidji State out of the WCHA. Miami is coming off a 23-10-6 campaign, which saw it capture its first Mason Cup for winning the CCHA Tournament and make its sixth straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Miami returns 16 letterwinners from last year’s squad that finished in third place in the CCHA during the regular season with a 16-7-5-2 record. The ‘Hawks downed Windsor on Sunday, 4-1, in its lone exhibition of the season, led by two goals from senior co-captain Alden Hirschfeld. Senior goaliesCody Reichard and Connor Knapp split time in net while Miami went 2-for-5 on the power play.

Bemidji State opens the 2011-12 season this weekend as well, after going 15-18-5 a year ago, including 8-15-5 in WCHA play, which landed them in 10th place, where they were picked to finish again in 2011-12. The Beavers did make the WCHA Tournament semifinals however a year ago, and return 20 players from that team. Leading the way for BSU is junior Jordan George, who paced the Beavers with 36 points a year ago, including 17 goals. Bemidji State topped Regina, 7-0, in its lone exhibition game last Sunday with George notching a goal and an assist.

THE COACHES
Enrico Blasi (Miami ’94) is in his 13th season behind the RedHawk bench. He is a four-time CCHA Coach of the Year and was named National Coach of the Year in 2005-06. He stands 262-169-46 in 12 seasons at his alma mater, where he has now led Miami to seven NCAA Tournaments, including two Frozen Four berths, a National Championship game appearance, a pair of CCHA regular-season titles and the school’s first ever Mason Cup last year. Blasi is the the winningest coach in school history.

Tom Serratore (Bemidji State ‘87) is in his 11th season at the helm of his alma mater. He has guided BSU to a 178-146-38 record while leading the Beavers to their first NCAA Tournament in 2005 and Frozen Four berth in 2009. BSU won five regular-season College Hockey America titles and three CHA Tournament titles under his watch (before moving to the WCHA). He is a five-time CHA Coach of the Year.

THE SERIES
The RedHawks are 3-1 all-time against the Beavers, all under head coach Enrico Blasi, but the squads have never met in Oxford. Miami beat BSU in Miami’s first Frozen Four appearance in 2009 but suffered its only loss to Bemidji State the following year, again on neutral ice during the 2009-10 season.

QUICK HITS
• Miami returns 16 letterwinners from last year’s team but loses five letterwinners from 2010-11, including a pair of All-Americans. The 2011 class accounted for 190 points last year (46 percent) while all of Miami’s returning players combined totaled 222 points.

• The RedHawks open the 2011-12 season ranked No. 1 in the country in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Preseason Poll, doing so for the second time in three years. Miami was ranked No. 1 for two weeks last year. The ‘Hawks are also No. 1 in the College Hockey News Preseason Top 10 and are No. 2 in the USCHO.com Poll.

• Miami will unveil its 2011 CCHA Tournament championship banner prior to Friday’s game.

• The RedHawks are 14-15-4 all-time in season openers and 22-9-2 in home openers. Miami is 4-0-1 in its last five season openers and has won each of its last nine home openers, last losing a home opener in 2001-02.

• Junior forward Reilly Smith is the leading returning goal-scorer in the nation. He tied for fourth nationally last year with 28 goals. Smith is also second among returning point-scorers in the NCAA after notching 54 points last year.

• Miami had four players named to the Preseason All-CCHA teams. Junior forward Reilly Smith was one of two unanimous First-Team selections while senior goalie Cody Reichard also earned a First-Team nod. Senior defensemen Will Weber and Chris Wideman made up the Second Team defensive corps.

• The RedHawks bring in a talented class of eight freshmen in 2011-12, three of which were already drafted in the NHL -- forwards Tyler Biggs (Toronto), Blake Coleman (New Jersey) and Jimmy Mullin (Tampa Bay).

UP NEXT
Miami hits the road for the first time in 2011-12 as the RedHawks travel to Hamilton, N.Y. to take on Colgate out of the ECAC on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14-15. Puck drop for both contests is set for 7 p.m. Miami is 1-1 all-time against the Raiders, last meeting during the 1998-99 season.

MEDIA COVERAGE
Saturday's contest against Bemidji State will be broadcast on the Ohio News Network (ONN), with Dave Allen and Neil Sika on the call, and will also be on radio on WKBV-AM (1490) and WMOH-AM (1450). Friday's game will not be on TV or radio. Both games will be streamed live on MURedHawks.com through the All-Access subscription package with Greg Waddell, the Voice of Miami Hockey, calling both games.

OPENING STATEMENT: The RedHawks are 14-15-4 all-time in season openers and 22-9-2 in home openers. Miami is 4-0-1 in its last five season openers and has won each of its last nine home openers, meaning the RedHawks are undefeated in home openers at Steve Cady Arena. Miami’s last loss in a home opener was in 2001-02 to Merrimack. Under head coach Enrico Blasi, Miami is 7-3-2 in season openers and 10-2-0 in home openers.

EXHIBITION EXCELLENCE: Miami downed Windsor, 4-1, on Sunday in its lone exhibition. Senior co-captain Alden Hirschfeld tallied two goals in the game after recording a hat trick in Miami’s exhibition win over Waterloo to start the 2010-11 season. He has three regular-season multi-goal games in his career, including one hat trick. The exhibition also saw Miami continue its strong power play, going 2-for-5 with a man advantage. The RedHawks ranked third nationally a year ago with a 24.7 percent conversion rate.

WHAT’S RETURNING: Miami brings back 16 letterwinners from its 2010-11 squad, including nine forwards, five defensemen and both goalies in seniors Connor Knapp and Cody Reichard. The RedHawks lose five letterwinners, however, including All-Americans Carter Camper and Andy Miele, who was Miami’s first Hobey Baker Award winner. The 2011 class was the second winningest class in school history (108 wins) and accounted for 190 points (46 percent) of Miami’s scoring in 2010-11, including three of its top four scorers, and 47 percent of the team’s goals. All of Miami’s returners combined totaled 222 points last year.

PRESEASON PICKS: Four RedHawks were named to the Preseason All-CCHA Teams, while no other team had more than two players on either squad. Junior forward Reilly Smith, who was tabbed First-Team All-CCHA last year, was one of two unanimous selections. Joining Smith on the First Team was senior goalie Cody Reichard, the 2010 CCHA Player of the Year, who was a Preseason First-Team All-CCHA recipient last year as well. Miami grabbed both defensive spots on the Second Team as senior defensemen Will Weber and Chris Wideman were both tabbed Preseason Second-Team All-CCHA. Wideman was a Preseason First-Team All-CCHA honoree last year and earned Second-Team All-CCHA accolades at the end of 2010-11.

GOING POLLING: For the second time in three years, Miami will start the season ranked No. 1 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll, after finishing last year No. 8 in the country. The RedHawks earned 15 first-place votes in the USA Today Preseason Poll and totaled 453 points. CCHA rival Notre Dame is No. 2, earning four first-place votes and 427 points. Miami was also selected No. 1 in the College Hockey News Preseason Top 10 while the ‘Hawks are ranked No. 2 in the USCHO.com Preseason Poll, where the Irish claimed the top spot. Miami did collect more first-place votes than Notre Dame, however, with 12 to UND’s 11, but Notre Dame had 740 points to Miami’s 722. The 12 first-place votes were the most of any team.

CONSISTENTLY AT THE TOP: Miami finished 2010-11 CCHA regular-season play with a 16-7-5-2 record, earning them third place in the standings. Miami has finished in the top three in the CCHA standings each of the last six years, something no other team in the league has done. During that stretch, the ‘Hawks have won the regular-season title twice, finished runner-up once and have three third-place finishes. That trend is expected to continue in 2011-12 as Miami was picked to finish second in the CCHA in both preseason polls (coaches and media) this year while Notre Dame was picked first in each preseason poll.

“Our guys are aware of what this game means on Thursday night,” said Solon Head Coach Jim McQuaide. “We need everyone - our band, cheerleaders, students, and community - behind us this week so we can prove that Stewart Field really is one of the most intimidating stadiums in Northeast Ohio. We have a great opportunity on Thursday night with live TV and a big game to show the entire state what the Valley Division is all about.”

Parma Heights' Bell Scores Early to Break Record During Spartans’ 2-1 Victory Versus Hiram

HIRAM, Ohio –All-American senior forward Vinny Bell (Parma Heights, Ohio/Valley Forge) scored just 40 seconds into Wednesday night’s match with host Hiram College and junior midfielder Ross Twanmoh (Fallston, Md./Fallston) scored with just three minutes left in regulation helping lead the Case Western Reserve University men’s soccer team past the Terriers by a 2-1 score at Henry Field.

Bell's goal Wednesday gives him 12 goals on the season to go along with four assists. Each total is a team-high mark, and the 12 goals move him past the mark of 11 set by RJ French in 2006, Kevin Bigart in 2006 and Mark Ruegsegger in 1992 for the single-season record. In addition, Bell moved into a tie with Bigart for the top spot all-time in Spartan history with 35 career goals.

As has been the norm this fall, Bell’s early goal gave the Spartans a quick 1-0 lead, and they possessed that advantage through the halftime intermission. Bell punched home the record goal following the Spartans applying pressure and obtaining a corner kick. Twanmoh took the corner opportunity and was credited with the assist giving him a pair of helpers for the season.



With time winding down in the final minutes of regulation, Twanmoh put the visiting Spartans up for good with his second goal of the season and third of his career. Sophomore midfielder Dominic Carusone (Kettering, Ohio/Dayton Carroll) notched his second assist of the season and third of his career on the play.


In the 70th minute, Hiram knotted the match at 1-1 with a goal from Daniel O'Callaghan and assisted by Ryan Minick.

In goal for the Spartans, senior Ben Yabrow (Marietta, Ga./George Walton Comprehensive) and the rest of the Spartan defensive unit shut down a Terrier offense that came into the match averaging 3.88 goals per game. The fourth-year Spartan posted two saves, while Hiram’s Joe Rottinger collected seven stops.

With the win, the Spartans improve to 8-3 overall and will return to University Athletic Association action on Sunday, October 9, when they take on Brandeis University (Mass.) at 1:00 p.m. at Case Field. With its loss, Hiram dips to 5-3-1.

About the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation's largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.5 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 11 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
