Game 1 of State Football Playoffs

Wynford Marches Forward in Playoffs

By: Kalyn Heinle, “Royal Times”

 After beating Delphos Jefferson 29-12 on Friday, November 7th, Wynford moves on in the state football playoff run. Next Friday night, the Royals will play Van Buren at Tiffin Columbian High School with game time at 7:30 p.m. 
The Royals got on the board first with a Nick Looker 4 yard touchdown run completing a 58 yard drive. Wynford surprised everyone with a fake extra point. The snap from Trey Stone went to the holder Austin Shutler who snapped directly to Jalon Brown the kicker. Trey Stone was an eligible receiver because he was on the end of the line of scrimmage due to the Royals shifting of their lineman. Brown rolled to his right and completed the pass to Stone in the endzone for the two point conversion giving the Royals an 8-0 lead. 
The Royals scored their second touchdown during the second quarter when Tony Watson, 2 receptions for 56 yards, caught a tipped ball pass from Keaton Teynor. Watson’s 51 yard reception gave Wynford a 15-0 lead before Delphos Jefferson got their first touchdown on a 5 yard run. This gave the Wildcats a chance closing the Royals lead to 15-6 after the two point conversion attempt failed. Takoda Wilburn had 1 reception for 36 yards which lead to Hayden Rhodes scoring their second touchdown in the second quarter crushing the hopes of the Wildcats. Wynford took a 22-6 lead into halftime and never looked back. Rhodes made a big impact for the Royals rushing attack with 11 rushing attempts for 100 yards while the team ran for 290 yards on 56 attempts. 

Neither of the teams were triumphant in scoring during the third quarter as both defenses showed their presences. The Wildcats scored their second touchdown in the fourth quarter trying to get back in the game, but with only 4:07 left on the clock it would take a miracle to beat the Royals. As time was running out, the Royals scored the last touchdown with 2:02 left on the clock on a 21 yard run by quarterback Keaton Teynor. Teynor had 26 rushes for 104 yards and 4 of 7 passing for 96 yards on the night. 
This secured the victory for the mighty Royals and a continuation of the season.
