Varsity Football

Early Exit From Playoffs

By: Todd Enders

The Wynford Royals ran into a tough Delta Panthers team in the first round of the state playoffs losing 21-15 and exiting the playoffs earlier than antipacting. Delta's 6-4 record was no indication of a weak team. The Panthers used a steady ground attack of B. Storeholder and J. Beverly which the Royals had difficulty controlling.
The Royals got out to an early lead on a 13 yard run by Zach Hoffman and two point conversion on a trick extra point play taking an 8-0. Wynford looked as if they were going to take an early 15-0 but a block in the back penalty negated the touchdown.
The Panthers got on the board just before halftime on a 6 yard run by Storeholder and the kick after was good bringing the score to 8-7 still in favor of the Royals. Delta put together two scoring drives during the second half both by Beverly giving the Panthers a 21-8 lead. Beverly's second score came after the Royals gave Delta a second chance on a face mask penalty on strong goal line stand.
Wynford would not give up. With roughly 8:00 left in the game, the Royals got good field position after the kick off and took the ball down the field and scored. Hoffman's 7 yard run brought the Royals to within seven at 21-15 with 6:49 left to play.
A strong defensive stand by the Royals gave them an opportunity to tie the game. With no time outs left and time ticking away, an interception ended the Royals playoff dreams. Wynford's season comes to an end with an impressive 9-2 record and another N10 championship.

Equally Matched Teams Collide

By: Todd Enders

 Two equally matched teams, the Wynford Royals (14-10) and the Gibsonburg Golden Bears
(14-9), collided in round one of the sectional tournament. It was evident on the talents of each teams players with the match going five games.
Each player did not want this to be the last game of the year with every match being a battle to the end. The Royals used 61 kills, 14 aces, and 8 blocks as they traded points with Gibsonburg during each match. The Royals came out on top winning the match 3-2 with the scores of 23-25, 30-28, 25-23, 25-27, and 15-13.
The Royals will need an excellent effort like this evenings as they travel to Huron on Saturday night to face the talented Huron Tigers (15-7) in the sectional championship game at 6:30.

Homecoming Festivities

Powder Puff Football / Bonfire

By: Todd Enders

A yearly tradition was brought back to the Wynford student body in the powder puff football game. The girls in grades 9-12 had the opportunity to take part in a game of flag football. The football players were the coaches, referees, and cheerleaders, that sure was a site to see. The senior and sophomore girls teamed up against the junior and freshmen girls. The juniors and freshmen got off to an early lead, but the seniors and sophomores were not going to let that affect them.  A 20-0 lead ended up in a 20-14 win for the underclassmen.

After the game, the attendees and others proceeded over to the high school for the bonfire and continued supporting the homecoming activities. The band and cheerleaders played and cheered as the fire glowed red hot. We would like to thank the Holmes Township Volunteer Fire Department for keeping the fire under control.

Please come out and support the Wynford football team on Friday night as they host the Seneca East Tigers in the homecoming game. Also, the 2015 Fall Homecoming king and queen will be crowned, and the 2005 football team will be recognized.

Wynford Football

Royals Plow Eagles

By: Todd Enders

On a wet and windy night, the Wynford Royals defeated the Colonel Crawford Eagles 41-14 and remained in control of the Iron Plow Trophy. Each schools FFA organization came up with the idea 2 years ago and it has become a tradition during the rivalry. Wynford improves to 2-1 while the Eagles fall to 2-1 taking their first defeat of the season. 

The Royals were lead by an impressive ground attack with Zach Hoffman and Nick Looker leading the way with a combined total of 289 rushing yards. Hoffman was the leading rusher with 176 yards while Looker added 113 yards. Wynford's 6 scores were all rushing with 3 each by Hoffman and Looker. Hoffman also contributed 4 of 7 passing on the wet evening for 102 yards.

The first quarter looked as if the game was going to be a close match up between the rivalries. The Royals got on the board first scoring quickly on a 15 yard run by Hoffman after the Eagles fumbled on their first possession. Colonel Crawford came right back scoring on their next possession making it 7-7.

The Eagles stopped the Royals on 4th and short and connected on a 10 yard pass play to increase their lead to 14-7. This was the last of the Eagles scoring on the night. The Royals defense was just to much for the Eagles. Wynford managed to tie the game at 14-14 before half with 4 seconds remaining on a 6 yard run by Looker.

The Royals offensively plowed through the Eagles defense in the second half and held Crawford to just 9 total yards offense.

This was a great victory for the Royals and they will host the Carey Blue Devils Friday night on senior night.
