Southwood Picks Up First Win

It was the last week of the regular season and the county round robin. Southwood was at Wabash looking for their first win and Wabash was looking to snap a six game losing streak.

It was the tale of two halves as defense dominated the first half and the offenses took over in the second. Wabash would strike first on a 19yd TD run by Tyler Brewer to put the Apaches up 6-0 and that’s how the first quarter ended.

The second quarter would also have just one score, a 5yd TD run by Nathan Hollars and the score was tied at 6 at the half.

Starting the third quarter on the first play from scrimmage, Apache running back Tyler Brewer scampered 65yds for the touchdown to give Wabash the 13-6 lead. The Apaches would convert an onside kick and drive down the field, settling for a field goal attempt that was blocked by Southwood. The rest of the quarter would be a Southwood offensive explosion. Connor Hobbs connected with Ryan Skeens for a 28yd TD with 3:59 to go and the score was tied at 13. A little over a minute later Hobbs hit Issac Peebles for his second TD pass and the Knights led 19-13. After holding the Apaches one more time the Knights would strike one more time in the third quarter, a 63yd TD pass to Levi Winget to go up 25-13.

To start the fourth quarter the Knights struck first. Hobbs threw his fourth touchdown pass, connecting with Ryan Skeens for the second time on a 10yd strike to lead 32-13. Nathan Hollars would strike next on a 16yd TD run to make it 39-13. Wabash finally broke the Knight scoring streak, with Roger Davis connecting with Cody Beeks for 26yds and a touchdown, making it 39-21. Hobbs and Winget would connect again, this time for 9yds. That TD connection was the most TD’s in a game for Hobbs(5) and Winget tied the school record for TD catches. Will Adams was next, scoring on a 25yd run to make it 52-21. The last score of the game was Logan McDonald scoring for Wabash for the 52-27 final.
