THE URSULINE STARTING LINEUP LOOKS THIS WAY. LET BY THE QUARTERBACK BRADY SHANNON. WE WILL SEE A LOT FROM NUMBER THREE, JAMES PHILLIPS. VERY YOUNG OFFENSIVE LINE. THE IRISH ARE STARTING A FRESHMAN AT RIGHT TACKLE AND SOPHOMORE AT LEFT TACKLE. BRAIN ENCHANTED — BRADY SHANNON DUMPS IT OFF. IT IS MATTHEW RIORDAN WHO DOUBLES AS A QUARTERBACK.

CHAD: JOE PEREZ WAS A MONSTER LAST WEEK GETTING AFTER THE QUARTERBACK FROM THE NOSE TACKLE POSITION.

THE COMMUNITY COMMITTING — CONTINUING TO COME TOGETHER FOLLOWING HIS SETTING THOUSAND PAID — SUDDEN PASSING. JOHN ELLIOTT STEPPING UP INTO HIS ROLE AS THE HEAD COACH. HE TOLD ME THIS IS A LITTLE TOO FITTING FOR ME COMING INTO THIS. HE WAS HIS ASSISTANT FOR 25 YEARS. NOT ONLY THAT, HIS FRIEND AND MENTOR AND HE KNEW HE WANTED TO BE A HEAD COACH SO THIS IS EXTR SPECIAL. CHAD: NO DOUBT, HE HAS TO BE SMILING FOLLOWING THAT DEFENSIVE STOP AS A WALL OF BLUE JERSEYS CLOGGED UP ANY KIND OF WHOLE. SO IT IS GOING TO BE A LOSS ON THE PLAY. INTO PUNT IS MATTHEW RIORDAN. IT LOOKS LIKE TODD SIMONS IS BEEP TO RETURN. CLEAN SNAP. RIORDAN FILING DOWNFIELD AND IT IS CAUGHT. NEVER SHY ABOUT GOING TO HIS BAG OF TRICKS. WIDE OPEN. THE IRISH HAVE IT, FIRST OUT AND 10. BRIAN: THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU HAVE AN ATHLETE. RIORDAN MAKES A GREAT PLAY. THIS IS WHAT THE COACHING STAFF WAS VERY NERVOUS ABOUT. COACH REARDON AND HIS BAG OF TRICKS AND THE SPECIAL TRICKS DEPARTMENT. CHAD: BRADY SHANNON IS DROPPED. HE JUST DID GET BACK TO THIS LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. YOU LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT YOUNG MAN, BRADY SHANNON, 6’2″ INCHES, 180 POUNDS. YOU REMARKED TO ME THAT HE LOOKS LIKE A SENIOR FOR JUST A SOPHOMORE. BRIAN: THAT WAS EYE-POPPING TO ME. HE LOOKS LIKE HE IS 220 POUNDS. GREAT LOOKING KID, ONLY A SOPHOMORE. CHAD: SHANNON FIRING RIGHT CORNER OF THE END ZONE. INCOMPLETE. LOOKING FOR JAMES PHILLIPS. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT GREAT SIZE, LOOK AT NUMBER THREE, PHILLIPS. 6’3″, 237 POUNDS. THAT YOUNG MEN CAN PRETTY MUCH DO IT ALL FOR DAN REARDON. HE CAN PLAY ANYWHERE, TIGHT END, WIDE RECEIVER.

BRIAN: SHANNON LOOKING TO FIT THE BALL INTO A TIGHT WINDOW. GREAT JOB GETTING THAT HAND UP TO DEFLECT THE BALL. CHAD: IT WILL BE FOURTH-DOWN. SHANNON TO THROW, RIGHT SIDE AND IT IS KNOCKED AWAY. THAT WAS ALMOST SIX FOR REARDON. IT DROPS TO THE TURF WE WILL TAKE A TIMEOUT AND BRING YOU BACK TO FALCON STADIUM AFTER THIS. URSULINE SO CLOSE TO FINDING PAYDIRT. FALCONS SAY NO WAY. WKBN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME OF T CHAD: FALCONS HAVE IT FIRST AND 10. RUN PLAY UP THE MIDDLE. IMMEDIATELY, WE SEE SOME NEW FACES IN FOR FITCH. THAT IS KEVIN SHERWOOD, A SOPHOMORE QUARTERBACK — CORNERBACK. CATCHES EVERYBODY BY SURPRISE AND SQUIRTS HIS WAY UP FOR NINE YARDS. IT IS SECOND DOWN AND LESS THAN A YARD. THE STARTING QUARTERBACK LISTED AND THE GUY WHO DID A BOATLOAD OF DAMAGE LAST WEEK WHERE’S NUMBER SIX. STARTING LINEUP FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH LOOKS THIS WAY. HE RUSHED FOR 244 YARDS AND FOUR TOUCHDOWNS IN THE SEASON OPENER. CJ WOODBERRY IS TREMENDOUS AT RUNNING BACK. ISAAC BETHEL, TODD SIMONS OUTSTANDING AT WIDE RECEIVER AND REALLY GOOD LINE FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH AS WELL. THEY DO A LOT OF READ OPTION. WE WILL SAY — SEE WHO LOOKS AND PLAYS QUARTERBACK.

SHERWOOD FIRES LEFT SIDE. IT IS CAUGHT. DOWN THE SIDELINE AND SHOVED OUT OF LOUD — OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE 50 YARD LINE. BIG-TIME PICKUP FOR LONG. BRIAN: GOOD JOB I SHERWOOD, JUST SEEING THAT LONG IS UNCOVERED TO GIVE HIM THE BALL. LET HIM RUN. HE PICKS UP GRAVEYARDS UNTIL HE IS KNOCKED OUT OF BOUNDS. CHAD: OFFICIALLY AT THE 48 YARD LINE. SHERWOOD LOOKING RIGHT SIDE. LONG MAKES THE CATCH AGAIN INSIDE THE URSULINE 45 AND WRESTLED DOWN AT THE 43 YARD LINE. BOTH SIDES UP-TEMPO AND THE FALCONS ARE HURRYING UP. SIMONS WILL LINE UP TO THE LEFT SIDE. RUN PLAY SHERWOOD AND HE PUSHES HIS WEIGHT INSIDE THE 40 AND DOWN TO THE 48 YARD LINE. FIRST AND 10 FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH. BRIAN: SHERWOOD SHOWING HE CAN DO BOTH.

AT THE 41-YARD LINE, LOSS OF THREE ON THE PLAY. YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT DEFENSIVE PRESSURE. THAT IS WHAT THE IRISH BROUGHT ON THAT PLAY. SHERWOOD DID NOT HAVE MUCH OF A CHANCE AT ALL. BRIAN: A LOT OF WHITE JERSEYS. GOOD CALLED BY THAT DEFENSIVE STAFFY URSULINE, BRINGING SOME PRESSURE. THEY GET HOME TO THE QUARTERBACK AND FORCE A SECOND AND LONG. CHAD: RYAN WAS THE FIRST TO GET THERE AND THEN HE GOT SOME HELP. FALCONS WILL TURN AND GIVE TO CJ WOODBERRY AND HIS SECOND EFFORT WORKS HIS WAY DOWN TO THE 3 YARD LINE BEFORE HE HEADS OUT OF BOUNDS. IT IS A PICKUP OF FOUR YARDS ON THE PLAY. IT WILL BE THIRD-DOWN. BRIAN: YOU WILL SEE A MISDIRECTION AND THAT IS WHAT AUSTINTOWN PREDICATES THEIR OFFENSE AROUND. DAN REARDON KNOWS HIS DEFENSE NEEDS TO READ THEIR KEYS, REACT AND TACKLE THE BALL. IF THEY DO THAT, THEY WILL GIVE THEMSELVES A CHANCE ON DEFENSE. CHAD: RUN PLAY GOES TO WOODBERRY.

YOU GET IN THIRD-DOWN AND YOU WERE FORCED TO THROW THE BALL EN YOU ARE NOT IN RHYTHM. THAT IS NOT WHAT URSULINE WANTS TO DO SO THEY HAVE TO MAKE A SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT. CHAD: REARDON WHO HAS ALREADY COMPLETED A PASS ON A FAKE PUNT WILL KICIT AWAY TO TODD SIMONS WHO DOUBLES AS A TREMENDOUS BASKETBALL PLAYER.

LESKOVAC HAS 244 RUSHING YARDS AND FOUR TOUCHDOWNS LAST WEEK. THAT IS WHAT YOU CALA GOOD NIGHT. BRIAN: HE DOES A GREAT JOB HERE GETTING YARDS. HE HAD A LOT OF BLOCKERS OUT IN FRONT OF HIM. HE IS A HECK OF A BALLPLAYER PLAYING BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL RIGHT NOW. CHAD: THIS IS KYREE LONG.

IT IS A FIRST DOWN OR AT LEAST CLOSE TO IT ON THE CARRY, TYREE MITCHELL. WE WILL SEE IF THEY MEASURE OR EYEBALL IT AND SAY TO MOVE THE CHAINS. BRIAN: THE FIRST THING WE NOTICE IS THE OFFENSIVE LINE IS EARNING THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE RIGHT NOW. HE DID NOT GET TOUCHED UNTIL HE WAS ABOUT EIGHT YARDS DOWN THE FIELD. CHAD: MITCHELL CARRIED THE BALL 14 TIMES FOR 50 YARDS AND A TOUCHDOWN LAST WEEK AND THAT ROAD WIN AGAINST YEARY HIGH SCHOOL. THAT WILL BRING THE CHAINS OUT.

HE HAS A KNACK WITH THE BALL IN HIS HANDS. SOMETIMES THAT IS THE BEST COACHING, LET THE KID DO HIS THING. CHAD: HE TURNS ON THE SPEED BURNERS WHEN HE BREAKS A TACKLE. LESKOVAC COULD NOT FIND MUCH OF A WHOLE THAT TIME BUT HE DID PICK UP A LITTLE BIT OF POSITIVE YARDAGE, BUT THERE WAS A SWARM OF URSULINE IRISH DEFENDERS TO MAKE SURE NOTHING HAPPENED TO EXTREME. JAMES PHILLIPS IS AMONG THOSE TO HELP POLISH THINGS OFF AT THE TAIL END. AT LEAST IN THE VICINITY, THAT IS.

MATTHEW REARDON SOMETIMES COMES IN AS A TIMEOUT HAS BEEN TAKEN. HE IS MORE OF A RUNNING QUARTERBACK, A DUAL THREAT. SHANNON IS MORE OF YOUR PROTOTYPICAL POCKET PASSER. BRIAN: HE IS ABLE TO STAND TALLER. ABOUT 6’2″, 6’3″. ‘S GOT THE BODY. THIS BALL COMES OUT VERY NICELY. HE IS GOING TO LEARN. HE IS ONLY A SOPHOMORE. PLAYED A LOT OF GAMES AS A FRESHMAN. HE IS GOING TO YOU ONE YOU CONTINUE TO HEAR ABOUT FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS. CHAD: THERE ARE HIS NUMBERS THERE. 83 YARDS AND THAT TOUCHDOWN PASS. AGAIN, HE IS DOING THIS WITH AN OFFENSIVE LINE THAT IS STILL NEW. AS HE GETS EXPERIENCE UPFRONT, MAYBE MORE TIME TO THROW, MOVE AROUND AND STEP UP IN THE POCKET KNOWING YOU WILL NOT GET HIT AND DO SOME DAMAGE. WATCH FOR THE RUN OF THE WEEK THAT COMES YOUR WAY EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT AT 11:00 ON WKBN 27. THIRD DOWN AND 10. BRADY SHANNON TO THROW. HE FIRES LEFT SIDE AND IT IS CAUGHT.

CHAD: BRADY SHANNON FIRING INCOMPLETE. HAULED IN BY JAMES PHILLIPS AND ANOTHER FIRST DOWN. JAMES PHILLIPS, A HUGE TARGET AND A FORCE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. DID NOT GET A LOT OF TOUCHES LAST WEEK BUT HIS PRESENCE ON THE FIELD AS A THREAT ENOUGH. HE’S VERBALLY COMMITTED TO WESTERN MICHIGAN AND HE IS THRILLED TO BE PLAYING IN THE MAC BRIAN: I WAS STANDING NEXT TO HIM AND PREGAME AND HE IS A MAN. HE MADE ME FEEL LIKE A THIRD GRADER. CHAD: YOU AND ME BOTH. SHANNON IS FLUSHED FROM THE POCKET. BREAKS A TACKLE AND HE IS FUN DOWN. GO.ENZO RUSSO WAS NOT LETTING- THE LAST CHANCE TO MAKE A STOP. BRIAN: SURVEYING THE DEFENSE, NOTHING THERE. AT THIS POINT, YOU HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE POCKET AND THROW THE BALL AWAY IF YOU CAN. THE RELENTLESS PURSUIT GOT TO HIM. CHAD: SOME PLAYERS WILL LIMP ON A SACK ATTEMPT. HE GOT RIGHT BACK UP AND MADE THE TACKLE. SECOND OUT AND 13. BRADY SHANNON FLOATING DOWN FIELD AND IT IS INTERCEPTED BY ISAAC BETHEL! BETHEL WITH THE PICK. I AM NOT SURE IF SHANNON’S ARM GOT HIT OR IF IT WAS TIPPED OR IF HE RUSHED IT. HE MAY HAVE RESTED A BIT. — RUSHED IT A LITTLE BIT. BRIAN: SOMETIMES WHEN YOU FLOAT ONE OUT THERE, IT IS NEVER GOOD NEWS FOR THE OFFENSE. CHAD: BIG DEFENSIVE STOP COMING BY WAY OF THE INTERCEPTED COURTESY OF ISAAC BETHEL. JUST LIKE THAT, THE FALCONS OFFENSE OF UNIT COMES BACK OUT, LED BY SOPHOMORE DEVIN SHERWOOD. THE FALCONS ARE GOING TO SEND OUT THREE WIDE RECEIVERS FAR SIDE TO THE RIGHT. ONE BACK IS IN THE BACKFIELD. THAT IS C.J. WOODBERRY. THEY GIVE IS TO WOODBERRY WHO STUTTER STEPS HIS WAY, PUTS HIS HEAD DOWN. MUSCLES ACROSS THE 25. HE’S TO THE 27 YARD LINE FOR A GAIN OF THREE YARDS. WOODBERRY WENT OVER THE 100 YARD MARK LAST WEEK. 101 YARDS AND A TP TO THE END ZONE FOR THAT YOUNG MAN. SHERWOOD SWEEPING THE RIGHT SIDE, TRYING TO CUT IT BACK INSIDE. SPINS OFF. THESE ACROSS THE 30 AND PUSHES HIS WAY TO THE 32 YARD LINE. COULD NOT QUITE GET IT TO THE OUTSIDE, BUT KIND OF SPUN HIS WAY FREE AND PICKED UP A COUPLE MORE. BRIAN: GOOD QUARTERBACK RUN THERE. TRYING TO GET IT TO THE OUTSIDE HERE. URSULINE WITH A GOOD JOB OF FORCING HIM BACK INSIDE WHERE THE DEFENSE IS COMING FROM. IT BRINGS UP A THIRD DOWN, VERY MANAGEABLE THIRD AND ONE. CHAD: THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE 33 YARD LINE. NATE LESKOVAC WILL KEEP IT HIMSELF. LESKOVAC, SEE WHERE THEY GIVE HIM FORWARD PROGRESS. LOOKS LIKE YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH. TO THE 35. IT IS A FIRST DOWN. GET ANOTHER LOOK AT IT HERE, WHERE THAT FORWARD PROGRESS IS AHEAD TO. BRIAN: DEFINITELY HAS THE YARDAGE FOR THE FIRST DOWN. I DON’T THINK THERE IS ANY QUESTION ABOUT THAT. CHAD: INSIDE OF 5:00 TO PLAY UNTIL HALFTIME. 14-7, FITCH LEADING URSULINE. LESKOVAC SQUIRTS HIS WAY ACROSS THE 40. HE’S AHEAD TO THE 42 YARD LINE. THAT’S A GAIN OF SIX YARDS. A RHYTHM NOW F AUSTINTOWN FITCH. IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY SINCE THEIR FIRST PLAY. THE GLYCOL IN AND WRITE — PLAY CALL IN AND WRITE BACK TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. BRIAN: THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING EXOTIC. YOU ARE SEEING A LOT OF THE SAME PLAYS REPEATED OVER AND OVER. THEY ARE COME DOUBLE IN THE SYSTEM. CHAD: LESKOVAC SWEEPING THE RIGHT SIDE. BREAKS ONE TACKLE AND FALLS FORWARD. ANOTHER FALCONS FIRST DOWN. BRIAN: KEEPING THE BALL IN THE HANDS OF NUMBER SIX AND BEING VERY CAUTIOUS WITH THE BALL. Y NOT? WHEN YOU HAVE GUYS LIKE DEVIN SHERWOOD AND NATE LESKOVAC, I WOULD DO THE SAME THING. CHAD: FIRST DOWN AND 10 FROM THE 47 YARD LINE. RUN PLAY GOES TO WOODBERRY. WOODBERRY IS STACKED UP. JAMES PHILLIPS AMONG OTHERS TO MAKE THE TACKLE, AS THERE WAS NO HOLE TO RUN THROUGH THAT TIME. BRIAN: GOOD PENETRATION BY THE URSULINE IRISH DEFENSE. STARTING TO MIX UP THEIR STUNTS. THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO IN ORDER TO STOP THAT QUARTERBACK RUN GAME AND FORCE FITCH TO TRY TO THROW SOMETHING DOWN THE FIELD. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. CHAD: THE FALCONS KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. IT’S WOODBERRY AGAIN AND HE IS THROWN INTO THE FAR SIDELINE AS HE REACHES THE 50 — OR DOES HE? IT WILL BRING UP A THIRD-DOWN PLAY. THE FITCH FANS MAY BE LOOKING FOR A LITTLE BIT OF A LATE HIT PERHAPS? I’M NOT SURE. BRIAN: ESPECIALLY WHEN IT HAPPENS ON YOUR SIDELINE. YOU DEFINITELY WANT THAT CALL. YOU WILL AT LEAST ASK FOR IT. CHAD: IT WAS AWFULLY CLOSE TO THAT SIDELINE. BRIAN: USUALLY WHEN THAT CONTACT HAPPENS ON THE FIELD — CHAD: THERE IS LESKOVAC. HE PUSHES HIS WAY INSIDE THE 50 TO THE 49 YARD LINE. THAT WILL BRING UP A FOURTH-DOWN PLAY NOW. PHILLIPS ACTIVE ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE, FIRST HALF ESPECIALLY. BRIAN: LET’S SEE WHEN THEY CHOOSE TO DO, BUT A GOOD STOP FOTHE URSULINE DEFENSE. THEY HAVE TO GET OFF THE FIELD BECAUSE THIS DEFENSE HAS PLAYED A NUMBER OF SYNAPSE IN THIS FIRST HALF — OF SNAPS IN THIS FIRST HAPPENED YOU START TO WORRY ABOUT ATTRITION. WE HAVE NOT REACHED HALFTIME YET. CHAD: HE WANTED TO SUSTAIN SOME DRIVES AND KEEP THAT DEFENSE FRESH. LESKOVAC AWAITS THE SNAP. THIS IS A WOBBLY KICK WHICH WILL HIT AT THE 10 AND IT WILL BE TOUCHED DOWN AT THE 12 YARD LINE WITH 2:12 LEFT TO PLAY IN THIS FIRST HALF. AUSTINTOWN FITCH 14, URSULINE 7 DURING WEEK TWO OF THE 2019 HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL. REGULAR SEASON. AGAIN, WITH THE WAY THAT FITCH STARTED, WENT RIGHT DOWN THE ELD, MAKING A DRIVE LOOK VERY EASY. LOOK AT THE SCOREBOARD AT HALFTIME OR RIGHT NEAR IT, THIS IS STILL ANYBODY’S GAME. URSULINE HAS BEEN ABLE TO GET SOME THINGS GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE AS YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS FOR BOTH SIDES. BRIAN: THEY ARE JUST DONE TWO DIFFERENT WAYS. FTICH HAS BEEN METHODICAL ON THE DRIVES AND URSULINE’S DRIVES HAVE BEEN PITCHEDP — PICKED UP IN CHUNKS. CHAD: BRADY SHANNON IS THE QUARTERBACK. STEPS UP, LOSES THE FOOTBALL. THERE IS A SCRUM FOR IT BUT HE WAS ABLE TO POUNCE ON IT. THE IRISH DODGY BIG-TIME BULLET. LET’S SEE WHO IT WAS WHO GOT THAT FOOTBALL TO SQUIRT ON THREE. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS JOE PEREZ, BUT KNOWS TACKLE — THE NOSE TA CKLE, THAT JUSTIN MAKE CONTACT WITH JANET. — SHANNON. BRIAN: IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO SACK THE QUARTERBACK, GET YOUR ARM OUT. HIS COACHES WILL WANT TO GIVE HIM A PAT ON THE BACK. IT IS INCOMPLETE.PS IT OFF AND DAIVON JONES, IF HE MAKES THAT CATCH WITH WHAT HIS THOUGHT PROCESS WAS, CUTTING IT BACK TOWARDS THE MIDDLE, GOING TO MAKE SOMETHING BIG-TIME HAPPENED BUT YOU HAVE TO HAUL IT IN FIRST. BRIAN: HERE. CHAD: WE HAVE A TIMEOUT DOWN ON THE TURF WITH 1:27 LEFT TO PLAY. CHRISTIAN ARMSTRONG IS SHAKEN UP AND BEING ESCORTED OFF THE FIELD TOWARDS THE FAR SIDELINE. ARMSTRONG, SUCH AN INTEGRAL PART OF WHAT THIS AUSTINTOWN FITCH TEAM DOES. TWO-TIME LETTER WINNER FOR THE FALCONS. A TEAM CAPTAIN. AN ABSOLUTE TREAT TO BE ABLE TO TALK TO AND VISIT WITH. SO CLOSE WITH COACH WHEN HE TOOK THE FIELD EVERY DAY FOR PRACTICE. HE SAID HE ALWAYS SAID COACH SAID IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR FOOTBALL AND THE COACH WOULD ALWAYS TELL HIM IT IS ALWAYS A BEAUTIFUL DAY FOR FOOTBALL. THIRD DOWN AT 18. BRADY SHANNON TO THROW. HE IS DRILLED A THE FOOTBALL IS LOOSE. FALCONS POUNCE ON IT. BRADY SHANNON TOOK A WICKED LICK ON THAT PLAY AND THEY WILL SAY IT IS AN INCOMPLETE PASS. WE WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT HERE. WHAT YOU HAVE HERE IS A FREE PRESSURE. THAT WAS NATE LESKOVAC. I TELL YOU WHAT, THAT WAS A FUMBLE. BRIAN: THERE’S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. URSULINE COMES AWAY WITH THE BALL HERE. LESKOVAC COMES UNABATED TO THE QUARTERBACK AND YOU CAN SEE THE WHIPLASH THAT BRADY SHANNON TAKES RIGHT TO THE BACK. CHAD: KNOCKING THE BALL FREE. FROM THE BACKEND OF HIS OWN END ZONE. TODD SIMONS IN SINGLE SAFETY AS THE KICK IS AWAY. IT IS A FLOATER. SIMONS MUFFS IT. IT IS LOOSE AND WHO HAS IT? THEY WILL TRY TO UNCOVERURSULINE IS SAYING IT SHOULD BE IRISH FOOTBALL. TAKE A LOOK HERE. THE OFFICIALS WILL CONVERSE. I’M NOT SO SURE WHAT THE DEAL IS HERE. BRIAN: I’M NOT SURE EITHER. IT’S HARD TO DETECT WHO CAME AWAY WITH THE BALL UNDERNEATH THAT PILE. CHAD: THE URSULINE COACHES ARE CONVINCED IT SHOULD BE URSULINE FOOTBALL. HERE’S ANOTHER LOOK AT IT FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE. MAYBE THEY JUST SAY, SIMONS HAS IT THERE. IT’S TWO GUYS FIGHTING FOR IT. THAT ONE WILL BE TALKED ABOUT FOR A WHILE. 56 SECONDS LEFT. BACK OUTCOMES AUSTINTOWN FITCH’S FENSIVE GROUP. SURE WOULD LOOKING TO THE RIGHT SIDE. IT IS CAUGHT INSIDE THE 40. SCRAPPING. SCRATCHING. CLAWING. FIGHTING FOR YARDAGE. TYLER EVANS. BRIAN: A GREAT CATCH THERE. TYLER EVANS DID A GREAT JOB. URSULINE NEEDS TO MOVE ONTO THE NEXT PLAY. COACH RIDDEN IS PRETTY HEATED ON HIS SIDELINE. THEY NEED TO CLOSE THIS HALF OUT. CHAD: SHERWOOD, FIRING DOWNFIELD. GREAT COVERAGE TO KNOCK THAT ONE DOWN. AND COMPLETE. PASS INTENDED FOR TYLER EVANS. WE ARE DOWN TO 26 SECONDS LEFT. SECOND QUARTER. IT WILL BE THIRD-DOWN AND SIX. SHERWOOD ROLLING. SIMONS MAKES THE CATCH. 31-YARD LINE. OF BOUNDS AT THE IT’S A FIRST DOWN FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH. WERE DOWN TO 19 SECONDS LEFT.

HIS SISTER, SOFTBALL PLAYER. GREAT VOLLEYBALL PLAYER AS WELL. FITCH WITH THE FOOTBALL. FALCONS KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. IT’S A RUN PLAY TO THE NEAR SIDE. IT WAS TYREE MITCHELL’S. 14 SECONDS LEFT. BRIAN: YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE KICKERS RANGE, 30-35 YARDS. CHAD: SURE WORD SHERWOOD ROLLING. HE WILL FLOATED DOWNFIELD. THE CATCH IS MADE INSIDE THE 15 YARD LINE. ONCE AGAIN, TODD SIMONS GETS IT IN WITH SIX SECONDS LEFT. AGAIN, GREAT CLOCK MANAGEMENT BY FITCH. SHERWOOD WAITED TO THE LAST POSSIBLE SECOND. SIMONS GOT AN EXTRA YARD OR TWO. THAT MADE SURE HE WENT OUT OF BOUNDS. SIX SECONDS LEFT. AT THIS STAGE OF THE GAME, WHAT YOU DO? FITCH HAS REACHED THE REALM — RED ZONE. THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE NOW IS THE 14 YARD LINE. YOU ARE LOOKING LIKE YOU ARE IN FIELD GOAL RANGE NOW. LAST WEEK, CARLO WALTERS, THE PLACEKICKER, DID BOOT A FIELD GOAL. THEY ALSO KEPT FIVE EXTRA POINTS SO HE’S PLENTY CAPABLE. IT LOOKS LIKE THE OFFENSE IS GOING TO COME OUT. IN THE BACKFIELD. IT’S TYREE MITCHELL. DEVON SHERWOOD TAKES THE SNAP. HE WILL FLOATED. RIGHT SIDE END ZONE CAUGHT. TOUCHDOWN! WHAT A CATCH FOR TODD SIMON’S. BRIAN: GREAT CALL HERE BY COACH ELLIOTT. SINCE THE OFFENSE BACK OUT. SHERWOOD TAKES THE SNAP. TODD SIMON’S STANDS TALL, PUTS THE BALL ON THE MONEY. THERE YOU GO WITH ONE SECOND LEFT. CHAD: PICTURE-PERFECT CLOCK MANAGEMENT. TODD SIMON’S CALLS IT IN. EXTRA POINT, COMING FROM CARLO WALTERS. BALL DOWN, TE UP. THE KICK IS GOOD. JUST LIKE THAT, AUSTINTOWN FITCH HAS INCREASED THE LEAD TO 21-7 ON A PICTURE-PERFECT TOUCHDOWN PASS FROM DEVON SHERWOOD TO TODD SIMONS. ONE SECOND REMAINING HERE. AGAIN, YOU GO BACK TO THE CONTROVERSIAL PLAY ON THAT PUNT. IT APPEARED IT COULD HAVE POTENTIALLY BEEN RECOVERED BY URSULINE. AGAIN, BOTH PLAYERS HAD IT. IT’S ALMOST LIKE EITHER WAY YOU GO, SOMEONE WILL BE UPSET. I’M NOT SAYING IT WAS RIGHT OR WRONG. THAT CHANGED THE COMPLEXION OF THE SCOREBOARD NOW. BRIAN: ABSOLUTELY. EVERYBODY IN THE STADIUM WANTS AN EXPLANATION TO HOW THAT DETERMINATION WAS MADE. WE ALL DON’T GET ONE. MOVE ON. FITCH MADE THE MOST OF THEIR OPPORTUNITY. THAT TWO-MINUTE DRIVE WAS TO PERFECTION. I WAS HERE FOR BREAKFAST — PRACTICE YESTERDAY. THEY PRACTICED IT. IT LOOKED JUST LIKE IT DID YESTERDAY IN PRACTICE. IT WAS ON AIR. COACH ELLIOTT WILL BE VERY PROUD OF HIS TEAM. BRIAN: JOSIAH MARTIN. THE KICK WILL ROLLOUT OF BOUNDS. CLOCK WON’T START, OF COURSE. NOW, WE WILL HAVE A DISCUSSION AND THEY WILL TAKE IT AGAIN. THE IRISH ARE HUDDLING UP. ALONG THEIR NEAR SIDELINE. KICK OUT OF BOUNDS. PENALTY ENFORCED AT THE END OF THE KICK. FIRST DOWN. CHAD: WE WILL NOT KICK AGAIN. PENALTY WAS ACCEPTED. THEY ARE GOING TO MARK THE BALL. AT THE END OF THE KICK, WE WILL HAVE TO ECK OUT WHERE THAT BALL WILL BE SET DOWN. IT WILL BE THE 48 YARD LINE OF URSULINE. BRADY SHANNON DOES HAVE A VERY STRONG ARM IN THE BACKFIELD JOINING HIM. DAVE ON JONES. HAIL MARY TIME. SOME SORT OF TRICK PLAY. NOW THEY WALK THE BALL BACK. A LITTLE TOO MUCH. THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE IS THE 43 YARD LINE. BRADY SHANNON, UNDER DURESS, TRYING TO DUMP IT OFF. 45, 50, TURNING UP THE SPEED BURNERS. JONES CUT DOWNT THE 30 YARD LINE. HE’S ELECTRIC. ALMOST BROKE THAT ONE ALL THE WAY TO THE HOUSE. VERY ENTERTAINING FIRST HALF OF FOOTBALL HERE AT FALCON STADIUM. YOUR HALFTIME SCORE, AUSTINTOWN FITCH 21, URSULINE SEVEN. WE WILL BRING YOU BACK TO FALCON STADIUM AFTER THIS ON THE WKBN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAM CHAD: LET’S GO DOWN TO THE SIDELINE. RICK MANAHAN IS STANDING BY. BROOKE: YOU TOLD ME HE LIKED WHAT YOU SAW OFFENSIVELY EARLY ON FROM YOUR TEAM. WHAT CHANGED LATER? URSULINE MADE SOME ADSTMENTS. THERE WERE THINGS WE KNEW ABOUT. WE HAVE TO GO BACK IN AND MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS WITH OUR LINEUP. BROOKE: WHAT KIND OF ADJUSTMENTS ARE YOU LOOKING AT? BLOCKING THINGS. NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. GOING OVER RULES AND STUFF. MAKING SURE THE KIDS ARE DOING WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO. BROOKE: THANKS, COACH. CHAD: BACK UP WITH YOU IN THE BOOTH. LET’S TAKE A LOOK BACK AT OUR GAME, BROUGHT TO YOU BY SHE LEASE. WE SAW BOTH SIDES DO SOME PLACE TOGETHER, SOME NICE CONSUMING DRIVES. BOTH SIDES HAVE DONE BIG PLAYS. WE HAVE SEEN A LITTLE BIT IN TERMS OF BIG-PLAY CAPABILITY. THAT COSTLY INTERCEPTION THEREBY URSULINE. THAT LED TO A TOUCHDOWN IN THAT FIRST HALF. OUR KEYS TO THE GAME ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY OUR FRIENDS AT SHE LINKS.

IT’S TIME FOR RMC CTC AND MUSCLE CONNECTION HALFTIME REPORT. WHAT STOOD OUT TO YOU ABOUT THE YOUNG FITCH QUARTERBACK? DEVON SHERWOOD. HE MADE SOME THINGS HAPPEN. BRIAN: HIS BALLS WERE ON THE MONEY. HE’S DOING A GREAT JOB OF RUNNING THE BALL. JUST FINDING HIS GUY HERE. HE HAD THE KNOCKOUT PUNCH AT THE END OF THE HALF. IT WAS THE MOST IMPRESSIVE THROW OF THE NIGHT TO ME. RIGHT HERE. GETTING THE BALL OUT. GETTING IT INTO THE END ZONE. PUTTING THEM UP 14 POINTS IN THE HALF. CHAD: BROUGHT TO YOU BY M CTC AND MUSCLE CONNECTION. HALFTIME NUMBERS LOOK THIS WAY. AUSTINTOWN FITCH GRINDING THOSE THINGS OUT, PUTTING LONG DRIVES TOGETHER. URSULINE WAS ABLE TO PUT THINGS TOGETHER WITH THE TOUCHDOWN PASS. THAT COSTLY INTERCEPTION FORDED A POTENTIAL SECOND SCORING DRIVE. TAKE A LOOK AT THE YOUNG QUARTERBACK YOU BRADY SHANNON. HE’S VERY ACCURATE. STRONG ARM. HE LOOKS GOOD HERE. THE COMPLETION TO SIMON. WHAT ELSE DID YOU LIKE ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN? BRIAN: HE HAS A GREAT BALL. WHEN HE HAS TIME, HE’S ACCURATE. HE CAN MAKE EVERY THROW ON THE FIELD. THAT’S WHAT’S IMPORTANT. CHAD: AVON JONES, THERE HE NEARLY ON THE FINAL PLAY OF THE FIRST HALF. VERY NEARLY BROKE IT FOR NEITHER — FOR AN EVEN BIGGER ONE. MATTHEW REARDON HAULED THAT WHEN ONE — ONE IN. LOOK AT SHERWOOD’S NUMBERS. SHANNON WITH ONE TOUCHDOWN AND THE ONE PICK AS WELL. WE KNEW WE WOULD SEE A STEADY DIET OF NATE LES QUEBEC — LESKOVAC THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THE BALLGAME TONIGHT. THE FALCONS DID NOT DISAPPOINT. LESKOVAC DID NOT START AT QUARTERBACK. SHERWOOD GOT THE NOD. LESKOVAC REALLY MADE HIS PRESENCE FELT. WHAT IMPRESSES YOU ABOUT WHAT THAT YOUNG MAN HAS DONE HERE TONIGHT, FRESH OFF A 244 YARD RUSHING PERFORMANCE WHEN WE COULD GO? — ONE WEEK AGO? . BRIAN: HE RU LIKE A RUNNING BACK. HE DOES A GREAT JOB MANAGING THIS OFFENSE. LIKE THE COACH SAYS, HE HAS A KNACK FOR FINDING THE OPEN SPACE. CHAD: RUSHING YARDAGE LOOKS THIS WAY. LESKOVAC, 58 YARDS. TOUGH TO GET THINGS GOING. THE COACH ADMITTED EARLIER THIS WEEK, RUSHING NUMBERS AREN’T IMPRESSIVE. THAT HAS TO CHANGE AS WE CONTINUE TO GROW AND DEVEL THROUGH THE COURSE OF THE SEASON.
