2A State Title Woodlan vs Southridge

Recommended Posts

Woodlan QB is not going to wow anyone with his passes but with so much space being given up by SR DB's, he only needs to get ball in about a 3 yd window to be successful.

Near "must score" drive for Southridge as defense it tired and clock ticking down

Nice pass by Harter and another drop by SR receiver.  Play coming back anyway due to ineligible man downfield

SR having to pass more than they prefer and without the element of surprise, SR passing game showing some cracks. 

Harter makes another good pass but WRs run into each other, tipped pass intercepted & returned inside the 20.

Funny how the football Gods often show up any time a QB throws back across the field. Tough break there on that INT. I haven’t watched all of the game, been flipping back and forth. With the way Woodlan is sending pressure off of the edge, SR needs to drag the backside wing on a mini-sprint out by the QB. The safety is too deep and Woodlan is going to be drastically outnumbered with sending personnel

Yet another huge play by SR Defense.  Wooldan kicker back on field for a 35 yd FG attempts.  Delay penalty backs them up another 5 yds. 

Offense back on field for Woodlan for 4th & 12.  Pass knocked down in the endzone for yet another BIG STOP for SR Defense.

SR stuffed on a 4th & 1.   Questionable call to come all the way across backfield on the outside hand-off.  Woodlan D-line has been getting good push all game and play was blown up immediately.

Woodlan takes over on downs with just over 5 mins to play.

SR Defense comes up with another  3 & out, just what SR needed.

SR lets kick bounce...all the way inside the 5 yd line.   

This will surely be the last chance for SR offense with just 3:56 left.

INT for 4th SR turnover...almost like a punt.  Woodlan has ball at 40 with only 3:39 left

Woodlan has 3rd & 6 on SR 34 yd line with 2:50 to go.  SR has to get 2 stops here to get ball back with likely < 2 mins left.

SR gets a stop & uses 2nd time out.  4th & 4 with 2:45 left

SR with INT at 33 yd line.  still 2:40 left

SR moving quickly but not their usual tempo so a little shakey

Harter seems to be having some issues throwing.  4th & 5...SR uses its last Timeout.  

Looks SR may have scored by TV signal is totally FUBAR'd

SR with perfect middle screen to pay-dirt.  Look to be going for 2.  IT's GOOOOOOOODDDDDDDD.

SR touchdown on a Middle screen with 1:22 left. Looks like a 2-pt try coming up. Have to question the Woodlan defensive back not playing the sticks on the 4th and 5. 

2-pt conversion good on a sprint out pass.

SR leads 15 - 14 with 1:22 left.  BIG PLAY for 2 pts conversion.

Remember:  Woodlan took opening drive 70 yds in just 1:07

Now this is a State Championship game!!

Best Championship game I've seen in years...no doubt

See if SR DB's can get better coverage knowing pass is likely.  SR dropping 7 into coverage.

2 near INT's by SR on 1st two plays from scrimmage

Woodlan's QB not the most accurate and it shows with much tighter coverage.

SR DEE-FENSE is MVP of this game, no dubt

Tough loss for Woodlan as their Defense was everything fans said it was.  Unfortunately, SR defense was even better, overcoming 4 TO's and on the field most of the game

Woodlan pretty much crapped the bed on that last possession. Great coverage and pressure by SR on the pass attempts. With decent field position and more than enough time, I don’t like Woodlan getting behind the sticks with chucking the ball. QB should have had an RPO to at least have a chance to gain some yardage if no one was open, especially with 2 timeouts left.

# 55 for Woodlan is obviously frustrated but the full- on bull-rush on the Victory formation is not necessary IMO.  Off the field now...

CONGRATS TO THE SOUTHRIDGE RAIDERS!!!!   How ironic that Woodlan wins against Eastbrook 15 - 14 and then loses the state final by the same score.  One of the best state finals I have EVER seen!!!
