Former Cowboy Brett Baker in the news

Former Cowboy Brett Baker is playing football for Mount Union, which is currently playing in the Division III playoffs.  (College football playoffs?  I didn't think that was possible).

Last line of the article reads (in part), "Brett Baker (St. Marys/St. Marys Memorial) got the final interception of the day and returned it 23 yards for a touchdown and the 62-14 final."

Record setting football season comes to an end

Wyoming's record-setting football season came to an end Friday night at Dayton Welcome Stadium in a 24-7 loss to Columbus St. Francis DeSales in the state semi-finals.

The game was a defensive struggle most of the night, remaining at just 3-0 in DeSales' favor until 5:00 left in the third quarter.  In my opinion, the final score overstates the difference in the game.  We were down inside their 20 at the end of the first half but didn't come away with any points.  We also drove down to the DeSales 10 yard line late in the fourth quarter before turning the ball over.  Finally, DeSales' third touchdown was on a fourth and one and their QB was pretty obviously pushed over the goal line by their running back (see below as the RB reaches out to do so), which is illegal (although rarely called - see here for Reggie Bush famously pushing Matt Leinart into the end zone in the USC-Notre Dame game from a few years ago).  I'm not crying foul.  They are an excellent football team and outgained us 339-252.  They were the better team Friday night. The score just seems to overstate the difference.

Coach Barre told the players after the game that it will take time for the pain to subdue, but when it does they will look back with pride on an outstanding season: the team was 13-1, won the CHL championship, the Regional championship and set the record for the most wins by a Wyoming High School football team (eclipsing the old mark by 2). 

They say that sport builds character.  It also reveals it.  One of the privileges of being down on the field is being able to see and hear the interactions: players, coaches and referees.  In the face of this heartbreaking loss, it was wonderful to see the reaction of the team - through the sadness they reached out to and comforted one another.  Those bonds of friendship and camaraderie will remain strong long after the pain of this loss has subsided.

Congratulations to the players and Coach Barre and his staff.

Final Score - DeSales 24-Cowboys 7

Live blogging from the game tonight

We want everyone to come to the game tonight and cheer on the Cowboys.  But for anyone who might be, for example, out of the country, we will post live updates from Welcome Stadium tonight.

More great WHS sports coverage in this week's Tri-County Press.  Football on the cover and page six, girls basketball preview on page seven.



Alternate Route Home Friday Night

For anyone who didn't make the game last Friday, the drive home was VERY slow. Greg Sagan has offered the following:

This is an alternate route home that I have taken many times when I-75 south gets backed up. It gets you back on I-75 just south of Solid Rock Church. If I see the road construction signs on the way up, this is the way I am coming home.

1. I-75 S toward Cincinnati - 6.7 mi
2. Take exit 44 for OH-725 toward Centerville - 0.3 mi
3. Turn left at Miamisburg Centerville Rd - 0.3 mi
4. Take the right onto OH-741 S/Springboro Pike. Continue to follow OH-741 S - 14.4 mi
5. Turn right at OH-63 W - 3.1 mi
6. Turn left to merge onto I-75 S toward Cincinnati - 14.6 mi


Sending the team off in style

From: Kathy Harper, Cheerleading Coach:

The Wyoming Cowboys will receive a police escort to lead the bus off to the game on Friday.

We want to pass the word for everyone (students, parents, faculty, etc.) to get to the parking lot at 4:30 with signs, pom-poms, cowbells and lots of noise makers.

We need everyone to be there ... want to have a huge line along the entire driveway giving the Cowboys a great send off as the team heads out with the escort to play in the state semi-final game.

Cowboys beat Shawnee 14-7, win Regional Championship

Wyoming beat Springfield Shawnee 14-7 last night at Welcome Stadium in Dayton, thereby winning the Regional Championship and advancing to the State semi-finals next Friday. Our opponent will be Columbus St. Francis DeSales, and the likely venue is (again) Welcome Stadium.

They say that for a team to be great, it has to be able to win when it doesn't play its best. Thanks primarily to the defense, that's what happened Friday night.

The offense moved the ball, racking up 343 yards of total offense. It just had difficulty sealing the deal. In the second quarter we drove down to the Shawnee 19 before fumbling the ball away, and at the end of the quarter were down to the seven when the clock ran out. In the third quarter we drove down to the 10, but subsequently had a Joe Panos field goal attempt blocked. In the fourth quarter, we drove down to the 15 before turning the ball over on downs.

We enjoyed great field position early, with Harry Meisner's 35 yard opening kickoff return setting up the offense just short of the midfield. However that drive ended four plays later with a turnover. The defense held Shawnee to a three and out, and a six yard Jonathan Tighe punt return gave us the ball at Shawnee's 44. Three Isiah Nearor runs and Kyle Seyfried passes of 18 yards to Harry and 12 yards to Evan Aleshire got us to fourth and one at the seven yard line. The coaches showed confidence in the offense and were rewarded by a 7 yard TD pass from Kyle to Isiah with 5:15 left in the first quarter. Isiah was hit at about the first down marker but broke the tackle and went into the end zone standing up.

(Isiah scores.  Mr. Overbey makes the call.)

As for the defense, it allowed Shawnee just four plays on our half of the field during the first two quarters. Shawnee's opening drive of the second half was a nine play drive that covered 40 yards, but the defense rose up and held them on a fourth and five at our 31 yard line. The next time Shawnee had the ball, Tony Davis caused a fumble which was recovered by Michael Travers at the Shawnee 31.

On Shawnee's next possession, they mounted their best drive of the night, a 12 play, 68 yard drive (aided by a 15 yard Wyoming penalty) but again, the defense held, forcing an incomplete pass on fourth and three from our twelve.

Shawnee finally got on the scoreboard on their next drive. They started at our 35 and immediately lost 7 yards. Then their quarterback dropped back to pass, scrambled free to the back side of the play and lofted a pass that was caught and taken down to the one for a 41 yard gain. Shawnee scored the next play. The game was tied with 8:24 to go in the fourth.

Now the pressure was back on the offense. After having managed to gain just 16 yards in 3 second half possessions, we got the ball back at our 36, thanks to a nice 28 yard kickoff return by Phillip Schuholz. Kyle dropped backed to pass, made a pump fake and threw it deep.

I have no idea what happened at that point because the Dayton Welcome security personnel were pretty strict as to where hangers on could stand. Therefore I saw nothing further. However, I read in the paper this morning that Spencer Herbst caught the pass and ran it in for a 64 yard touchdown. Twenty seconds had elapsed since Shawnee's score.

Here is a picture of Spencer celebrating at the end of the game.
He probably looked similarly happy after catching a 64 yard TD pass,
but we can only speculate about that.

After we drove down to the 15 but couldn't produce any points, Shawnee had one last chance, with 54.2 seconds left on the clock. They made two first downs before Max Kadish intercepted a pass and returned it 19 yards to close the door for good.

Kyle took a knee to run the last 1.5 seconds off the clock. The defense had not allowed Shawnee out of their half of the field after the touchdown. It allowed Shawnee just 192 yards on the night.  The defense was led by Jibreel Black and Tony Davis, who were each credited with 6.5 tackles.

Kyle was 18 for 26 on the night, but two or three of those incompletions were him spiking the ball toward the end of the first half to stop the clock. He threw for 243 yards and both touchdowns.

The win brings the team to 13-0, extending the record for most wins in a season which was set last week at 12.

Our Athletic Director, Jim Barre, often mentions how important senior leadership is for the success of any team.  Here are the football seniors waiting to accept the Regional Championship trophy.

Andrew Kraner, Dillon Burk, Alex Etler, Spencer Herbst, Harry Meisner, Evan Aleshire, Isiah Nearor, Jibreel Black, Jared Frost, Nick Layman, Jacob Allsop, Broderick Williams, James Edwards, Oliver Jawwaad

With some folks out of town for Thanksgiving next week, we're going to need everyone around to make a special effort to get out to the game and support the Cowboys.

Jeff King, WHS '07, carries American flag onto field for OU

Here is a YouTube video of Jeff King (#98), WHS '07, leading his Ohio University Bobcat football team onto the field against Buffalo.  OU was playing the day before Veteran's Day, and since Jeff's dad Jeff (you know him as the voice of the Cowboys) is a veteran, he was selected to carry the flag.  You can see him starting at about 32 seconds into the video.

Fall Sports Awards - Monday night at 7 in Pendery

As a reminder the Fall Sports Awards will be tomorrow night, Monday, at 7 PM in the Pendery Center.  Because of the length of their seasons, the football and girls soccer teams will have separate awards nights.


Football team beats Monroe 14-7, goes to 12-0

The football team played another tough nail-biter last night, this time prevailing over Monroe 14-7 and thereby advancing to the regional finals next Friday night against Springfield Shawnee.  In the process they established Wyoming's first ever 12 win season. 

After a first half that Monroe dominated with its ball control offense, the Cowboys came out after halftime down 7-0.  The offense started at its own 19 and marched straight down the field on a 10 play, 81 yard driving culminating with Kyle Seyfried running it in from the 5. 

Kyle was 3-3 passing on the drive, all to Harry Meisner for a total of 23 yards.  Isiah Nearor was the workhorse, carrying 5 times for 38 yards.  The drive was also aided by a Monroe facemask penalty.

After the defense held Monroe to a three and out, the offense drove down to the Monroe 25, where it faced a fourth and 16.  Kyle dropped back to pass and then took off around left end.

He apparently gained 15.999999999999 yards, because the referee could not determine visually if it was a first down, but rather had to pull out a card to see if he could slip it between the ball and the first down marker.  Alas, he could.

No matter.  The defense came up big again and forced another three and out. 

(Picture below for illustrative purposes only.  Not from actual drive.)

Jonathan Tighe's punt return gave the offense the ball at the Monroe 49.  After a penalty and run that picked up nothing, Kyle hit Evan Aleshire at about the 37 yard line (by my estimate).  Evan then broke a number of tackles and high-stepped into the end zone down the right side line.

While others celebrated, Harry Meisner conscientiously  ensured that the field was ready for the last 9:24 of action.

Monroe returned Tyler Cornelius' kick to their 30 yard line.  After a sack was nullified by a face mask penalty against us, Monroe ran the ball 12 straight times, getting down to our 14 yard line, 3rd and eight.  Incomplete pass.  On fourth and eight, it looked like they tried to run a throwback to their quarterback, but we had them well scouted and covered their QB.  The running back was tough to bring down though, and scrambled back to the right and was able to get off a pass, but Jacob Allsop was there to make a fine play and break it up in the end zone.

We weren't quite home free, as Monroe's defense held after giving up one first down.  They got the ball back at our 41 with 34 seconds on the clock.  They picked up 8 yards each on their first two plays, and then threw an incomplete pass.  Their QB then dropped back again, but Tony Davis was there to sack him and force a fumble.  Jibreel Black recovered. 

Kyle took a knee. Game over.  Let the celebration begin.

And the interviews.

Kyle led all rushers with 56 yards on 18 carries, with Isiah right behind with 53 yards on 11 carries.  Kyle was 8 for 12 passing for 136 yards and the touchdown to Evan.

The most interesting thing statistically might be how the last three games have compared in terms of total plays and Cowboy possessions.  In the Indian Hill game, there were 177 total plays and we had the ball 15 times.  Against Eaton it was 151 plays and 10 possessions for us.  In this game there were just 126 total plays, and we had eight possessions, including the final, one play kneel down.

Girls soccer loses (barely) in state semi-finals

The Wyoming girls soccer team fell just short last night of qualifying for the state championship on Saturday.  The game against Bexley was tied at 2-2 at the end of regulation and stayed that way through two overtime periods.  It came down to penalty kicks, which Bexley won 3-2.  The Roundup was never a fan of this form of deciding a game, and is even less so after watching both our boys and girls soccer teams lose in this format.

Michelle Jolson scored both of the goals in regulation last night.  Her first goal came in the 22nd minute of the game to tie things at 1-1. 

Her second came with 18:28 left in regulation from Jenni Marck and Jillian Anderson

Alas, they were not enough.  Bexley scored about 5 minutes later on a direct kick, eventually sending the game into overtime.

Although it will take a while for the pain to wear off, this team played mightily and should look back on this season with tremendous pride.  They set records for most wins and most shutouts.

Congratulations to the players and coaches for an outstanding season.
