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.
