and you're going with Concord because of this reason? No disrespect to the Minutemen special teams whatsoever, but the Tigers have a dandy in sophomore kicker Harrison Mevis (Andrew's younger brother).  Add Zach Riley's kickoff and punt return abilities... hard to believe that's where the difference will be.  Both teams are fairly evenly matched up in that department IMO.

 

Side note, NorthWood freshmen WALLOPED Warsaw last night 47-7.  Warsaw's freshmen finish 6-3, 4-3 in the NLC, but I know they had two or three starters that got pulled up to JV/Varsity earlier in the season (including wide receiver Luke Adamiec who caught a touchdown against Wawasee and picked up a huge 1st down last week against NorthWood).

Not saying Concord has better special teams.  Just saying it might come down to a field goal or one team may make a play in that department that is the difference.  I agree both teams are good in the kicking game.

Warsaw Freshmen finished 6-3, Northwood 7-2, Northridge 9-0, anyone know how the rest of the conference did this season?

Went 1-3 last week (Sorry Raiders for doubting you!  Thank you Tigers for making me look bad! And I called the offensive struggle that was Wawasee/Memorial... just picked the wrong team to win by 1 point!)  Anyway, my congratulations to the Northridge Raiders on their first NLC Championship in school history.  If the northern 4A state representative comes from Sectional 19 (Northridge, Angola, CMA, Plymouth, East Noble or NorthWood)... they will have been BATTLE tested for sure with a potential New Haven/Leo/Dwenger regional clash and then a semi-state appearance against Lowell/Griffith/New Prairie/Hobart/Mishawaka... it'll definitely be fun to watch!  First up, the final week of the regular season:

#2 (4A) Northridge (8-0, 6-0) @ Elkhart Memorial (1-7, 0-6):  Not much to say here.  The Raiders should roll right along against a hapless Memorial squad.  The Crimson Chargers haven't scored more than 14 points in an NLC game all season and face the #2 scoring defense in the NLC (13.2 ppg in conference games).  That being said, I don't think the Raiders will necessarily score nonstop against Memorial.  With a comfortable lead at halftime, I could see them resting a few players here and there as they prepare for the aformentioned gauntlet known as Sectional 19... NORTHRIDGE by 22

#13 (4A) Plymouth (6-2, 4-2) @ #15 (4A) NorthWood (5-3, 3-3): Game of the week in the conference (although depending what Warsaw team shows up in Dunlap tonight could sway that), the Rockies and Panthers should provide a quality battle (and potential preview of a sectional championship???).  Even though Plymouth ended up beating Goshen by 20 points last week, that game was tied 21-21 midway through the 3rd quarter before the Rockies turned it on.  I haven't heard much lately, but how are they injury wise?  Are they still banged up?  Or are they getting healthy?  Either way, following NorthWood's loss at Warsaw last week, I feel like the Panthers will be looking to rebound in extraordinary fashion.  The last time NorthWood lost at home was way back in Week 4 of the 2015 season on September 11th against Goshen.  In fact, the Panthers have only lost 4 home games in Coach Nate Andrews 4 seasons at the helm. The two teams are extremely similar in terms of offensive and defensive scoring, and both lost tight games to Concord and Northridge.  I'll stick with the home team and those two point conversion attempts... NORTHWOOD by 2

Warsaw (5-3, 4-2) @ #7 (5A) Concord (7-1, 5-1): This is an extremely intriguing game to me this week.  Warsaw surprised the heck out of me last week after they were down 28-10 in the 3rd quarter and came back to win.  In past years, I feel like the Tigers would fold in those types of games.  However, they stuck with their game plan, executed when it mattered and took advantage of mistakes by NorthWood to find themselves in a battle for 2nd place in the conference.  Reread that... with a win tonight, Warsaw could tie with Concord and potentially Plymouth for 2nd place in the conference (which would be HUGE for the NLC All-Sports Trophy race).  The 1st quarter will determine how this game will go.  Shocking, I know.  But in all seriousness, if the Tigers come out and play like they did in the 2nd half last week AND the Minutemen show any sort of hangover effect from last week's game, Warsaw could compete and win.  If Warsaw comes out and isn't focused and Concord plays like they have for most of the season, that could spell trouble.  Just going off the fact that Northridge was able to rush for 256 yards and the Raider QB had 114 yards on 16 carries and the Tigers have seemed to find a good offensive rhythm over the last 2 weeks with Larsh running the ball, I suppose I'll go with the upset... WARSAW by 4

Wawasee (2-6, 1-5) @ Goshen (1-7, 1-5): Yawn.  Here's to hoping both programs are able to get better in the offseason and head in the right direction.  I understand that throughout a conference season, you're going to have to have some teams end up near the bottom, but it'd be great to see all NLC teams competitive week in and week out.  I think Coach Park has made strides and will continue to get the Redhawks moving towards their old ways. Coach Eshbach was hired later than what you'd like to see and has dealt with quite the injury bug in Syracuse this season.  This week, I'll take the team that has shown the ability to put the ball in the endzone over the last two weeks... GOSHEN by 14

Beautiful evening for football tonight!  We've certainly lucked out weather wise on Friday nights this season.

Well outside of an apocalyptic meltdown we should secure our first outright NLC championship tomorrow night. Only game I'm really interested in this week is Plymouth and NW

In football......NR has dominated in a few sports and been very competitive in many for a long time.  Even winning the all-sports title a few times.  Will be easier to get that title with the football program contributing like it is now.

Yes should've stated that but I think most NLC followers know

Weird start at memorial, after all the players were on the field ready, they remembered that they forgot to play the national anthem.. then the chargers proceeded to attempt and recover an onside kick, going 4 and out

Didn’t post this week because I had no idea how we would react this week. With that said, we did well. Smart had the best game both defensively and offensively in his career. Any college will be fortunate to have him. Loved the creative offense.  Both Yoder’s made me proud. O line played well. A giant caveat to the outcome is, Plymouth playing without Drudge on defense, is simply a huge difference. Watching huddle, smart and Drudge were/are the difference makers that can’t be overcome. Plymouth’s d is a shell of themselves compared to a few weeks ago. 

Enjoy Saturday football

Well, new season starts now. Can’t feel sorry for yourself. Losing *%#!?*s, but learn from it. NWs speed is very impressive. We simply could not match that. Knowing our staff, I’m sure they are already putting a game plan together for East noble. 

Congrats to the many NR fans here. Enjoy it

I don't know if this has been shared, but former Bremen and Northridge coach Dennis Sienicki had a fall and suffered a traumatic brain injury.  He led the Lions to the 1987 sectional title and later moved on to Northridge.  He/his wife were the ones responsible for designing the lower case little b that Bremen began wearing in the 1970's.

It hadn't been shared yet on the GID, I will post what I know shortly....I forgot he had been at Bremen before he came to us.  He was my older brothers head coach, and my assistant at Northridge.  His son is one of the current assistants for Northridge Varsity and I usually sit next to his wife and Coach (Dennis) Sienicki on Friday nights.

Wow!  I am very sorry to hear this news.  Coach Sienicki was the line coach at Bremen when I played there.  I had a great deal of respect for him as a coach and he was my favorite teacher as well!  Please keep us updated on his condition.  He and his family will be in my prayers!

Hopefully some of those teams can heal up in 2 week's time. (Goshen specifically.....someone said they had some banged up players)

How does everyone feel the Memorial/FW North game will go?  I don't know much about North, but their record indicates it might be competitive?

CMA is beautiful.  I am nervous for your Raiders....if you win, which i think you will, it will be because of the defense.  Good luck!  We used to always play CMA and we had some great games with them.  It will be interesting if anyone on their roster is actually from Indiana.
