LATE TOUCHDOWN SINKS HUSKIES IN 23-16 LOSS
After a spectacular ten play drive that involved converting a fourth-and-five to take a 16-15 lead with just 2:36 left in the game, the Huskies gave up a last minute score in a 23-16 loss to Jasper. Sophomore Cale Johnson’s determined lunge to keep a drive alive at the Jasper five and Capelton Presswood’s 15 touchdown of the season went for naught.
HANKINS SETS EARLY TONE
The first quarter of action belonged to the Jasper Wildcats as they twice drove into North territory. Their first drive was ended when junior T.J. Hankins greeted the Wildcat quarterback at the line of scrimmage with a bear hug. Hankins then ripped the ball from the runner’s arms and recovered the loose ball at the North 23-yard line.
Hankins played a key role in stopping Jasper’s second drive when he caught up with an option play from behind and dropped the quarterback for a three yard loss at the North 37-yard line. Facing third-and-long, Jasper proved ineffective in the passing game throughout the contest.
The Wildcats were finally able to sustain a drive mid-way through the second quarter and scored the game’s first touchdown with 4:27 left before halftime.
Presswood then assumed control of the game.
PRESSWOOD ASSERTS HIMSELF
Taking the ensuing kickoff return outside the right hash mark at the 15-yard line, ‘Cape’ quickly split the gap between the first three defenders to reach him and exploded into the second tier. He slipped one outstretched arm, jump cut towards the sideline, and accelerated past three more defenders. Streaking down the sideline, only a desperation lunge by the kicker was able to trip him up at the Jasper 20-yard line.
Quarterback Ethan Brawdy picked up a bad snap and turned it into a six-yard gain to the 14. From there it was all Presswood as he first caught a pass in the flat and churned his way to the nine and then bulled his way to the two on a trap play.
On second and goal from the two, freshman guard Timothy Dixon and senior center Gage Sales provided a crease in the Wildcat defense that Presswood dove through for North’s first score. With sophomore Mitchell Renfro kicking in a swirling wind with gusts of 30 miles per hour, the extra point kick was no good.
ANOTHER SCORE BEFORE THE HALF
Jasper was held to a three-and-out and the Jasper punter also had difficulty with the wind as his punt traveled just 28 yards and senior Robert Pollard returned it to the North 40. With 1:18 to play in the half and a strong wind at their back, the Huskies were ‘thinking’ one more score before the break. Three Brawdy runs (in which he managed to get out of bounds to stop the clock on all three), a Presswood counter play, and a Brawdy pass to sophomore Jaylon Mitchell running an ‘out rout’ that stopped the clock had North at the Jasper 21 with two seconds to play. Pollard placed the ball down at the 28 yard line and this time Renfro split the uprights for a Husky 9-7 half time lead.
THIRD QUARTER SLUG FEST
The third quarter proved to be an example of a good-old-fashioned football game with both sides repeatedly exchanging punts. On three different occasions, North defenders tackled Wildcats for loss early in a possession to force third-and-long situations that Jasper could not convert. In the entire game, the Wildcats would only complete two passes. They were a team whose offense could not be counted on to gain a lot of yards on a single play.
JASPER TAKES THE LEAD
The game moved into the fourth quarter with a punt that Jasper returned to midfield. A series of running plays were helped along tremendously by a face mask penalty call against North. The penalty gave Jasper first and goal at the ten and they scored on the next play to take a 15-9 lead with 7:33 to play.
After Jasper kicked off out-of-bounds, it fell to Presswood to assume the role of Superman…again. The Huskies put together a ten play drive that featured ‘Cape’ on seven of the plays and he did not disappoint. After a Wildcat pass interference call gave the Huskies a first down at midfield, the Huskies lined up in shotgun formation with Presswood to the quarterback’s right.
On the snap, he took the handoff left and the line began a zone blocking scheme that had everyone reaching to their left for blocks. Gage Sales kept Jasper’s best lineman from penetrating deeply enough to shut down the play and Gunnar Sales spun the end far outside the hash marks and nearly into the next township. Timothy Dixon took a more modest approach on the middle linebacker—he blocked him into the ground and then fell on him.
The result of those blocks was that ‘Cape’ was into the secondary and running without being touched. A trio of defenders played the angle from the safety spot and forced him to the sidelines at the Jasper 17. Unfortunately, a costly motion penalty looked like it might stall the drive and the Huskies were facing 4th down and five at the 12-yard line with under four minutes to play. It was a do-or-die moment that called for someone to ‘make-a-play’.
A PLAYER MAKES A PLAY
Sophomore Cale Johnson stands 5 feet 9 inches and weighs 159 “and-a-half” pounds. Lining up at “H” back, he had been used as a blocker all evening long. On fourth and five, he ran a pass route that required him to ‘slip’ through the defensive line and run parallel to the line of scrimmage toward the sideline. If the ball was thrown his way, he had to catch it and get to the seven yard line for a first down.
The ball came his way.
He caught it and was immediately hit by a linebacker who stood 6’2” and outweighed him by forty pounds.
And he was just at the eight yard line—a yard short of the first down marker. Video shows the ‘heads up’ sophomore looking to the sideline to check for the first down chains. He struggled in the grasp of the much larger defender, stretched the ball forward, and made one last heave with his legs to thrust himself forward toward the seven.
A player ‘made-a-play’ and the Huskies’ chances remained alive.
PRESSWOOD CUTS UP THE DEFENSE
Two plays later, Presswood took a handoff left on a play that looked to be designed to be a sweep that would give him a chance to run for the end zone flag. Possessing great field of vision, the senior running back noticed that Dixon had once again battered his opponent to the ground. Presswood immediately cut-back toward the opening Dixon had created and the defenders were unable to correct their motion towards the right. ‘Cape’ danced into the end zone, Renfro hit the extra point, and North led 16-15 with just over two minutes to play.
Jasper was able to return the kickoff to the 40 and gained a first down at midfield with 1:40 to play. A Husky defender then tackled the Jasper quarterback for a loss to set up a situation that Jasper had been unable to overcome during the entire game. They were facing 12 yards for a first down and just over a minute to play.
And then the defender earned an unsportsmanlike penalty that gave the Wildcats first and ten at the North 35.
Forty seconds later Jasper scored the winning touchdown and North lost.
