7th Grade Football

7th Grade Football Falls to Upper Sandusky 

By: Kelsey Redden

On Tuesday, October 15, 2013, the 7th grade football team played their last game of the season. They hosted the Upper Sandusky Rams and kickoff was at 5:00 p.m. Wynford started off with the ball first but didn’t keep possession long. They were forced to punt after failing to gain a first down. On the first play of the game, the Rams scored and converted on the two point conversion. This put the Rams up 8-0 early in the first quarter. Wynford was again forced to punt but then their defense forced Upper to punt as well. On Upper’s punt, Wynford’s punt returner fumbled the kick and the Rams got the ball right back. The Wynford defense was able to hold to Rams once they got into the red zone. Wynford forced a turnover on downs as the first quarter drew to an end. Wynford’s struggling offense again is forced to punt on their first possession to start the second quarter. The Rams drove the ball right down the field for a score. The Rams were unsuccessful on the two point conversion, making the score 14-0. The Royals got the ball back and their offense started to make some progress after completing a successful pass play to give the Royals their first first down of game. Though after their successful play, Wynford failed to make any more progress and was forced to punt. The Rams were able to score again but were stopped on the two point conversion by the Royals defense. This made the score 20-0 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Rams score on the first play of the half and try to kick the extra point. The extra point was no good making the score 26-0. This would end up being the final score of the game. In the fourth quarter, Wynford’s offense hit a spark and was driving down the field. Only seconds left in the game, the Royal’s try to go for a deep pass only to have if picked off. The Royals ended their season 0-6 in the league. When asked about the 7th game team, Mr. Barbuto said proudly, “The boys got better and better every week they played.”
