Is Tiptons resting their starters tonight?

Don't know about Tiptons, but it looks like LCC's bus got caught in the rain and arrived late and the refs started the game on time.  Can't believe the IHSAA would allow such a thing to happen.  And Tiptons could have waited and ...

*whisper from the side*

I've just been informed that this was a home game for the Knights.  I got nothin'.  I gotta go.

This puts the officiating crew in a very uncomfortable position. On the one hand you’ve got a coach who says his team was ready at the appointed time, and now he’s going to be disadvantaged by the delay. On the other hand, you don’t want to send kids out there who haven’t warmed up sufficiently. It’s a player safety issue. 

The officials simply have to err on the side of player safety. So, give the late arriving team enough time to do their regular warmup, and then make a report to the IHSAA about the late start.

Getting ready to join the large Roncalli caravan to Russiaville on Friday night.  It will be an extremely rare game on grass for the Royals.  Congrats to the Panthers on another fine regular season.  We hope that Coach Stewart and QB Dylan Bryant are back in action this week.  Looks like it will come down to the battle in the trenches as both teams prefer to run the ball.  The question will be if the Panthers can handle Roncalli's huge OL.  Projected OL starters for the Royals are:

LT - Lauck 6'7 290
LG - Ray 6'3 300
C - Seacrest 6'7 295
RG - Skartvedt 6'5 303
RT - McNeeley 6'4 278
Jumbo set OT - Meek 6'5 346   

These are all one-way players.  The DL includes Swartz at 6'1 280 and Neu at 6'4 270.

Hoping for a dry game!

Looks like the Roncalli OL is a little banged up.  Skartvedt is out and McNeeley will not start so sub in "Pee Wee" Lewis (5'11 211) at RG and Meek (6'5 346) will start at RT.

LCC turns on the defense in 4Q and outscores Speedway 21-0 in the 4th after playing back-and-forth all game long ... winning 56-35.

Player of that quarter had to be LCC's linebacker, Kline.  I think he's listed as 5'8" and 145 lbs.  He's just the latest in a long line of "pound for pound" players, small guys who hit way above their weight, coming out of LCC.  Guys like Preston Hensley, Jordan Turpin, Daniel Roach, Travis Smith, Scotty Trout ... who started at LCC and finished at Jeff, Mike Murphy, Stu Corcoran.  In the 4th, he had, across three Speedway offensive plays in a row, a sack, a strip, and a strip. 

I recall back on the first day of equipment handouts when Kline was in 3rd grade, my offensive coordinator and I were going down the list of kids to assess what we had in terms of numbers.  We got down to Kline's name and my OC lets out a laugh.  He then relays to me a story about Kline that kind of tells you everything you need to know about him now and then.  My OC said he was at an LCC basketball game and noticed some commotion going on over to side.  He says, as he get closer, he notices a smaller kid in a tussle with what seemed like roughly five 5th grades.  Turns out the smaller kid was Kline as a 2nd grader.  My OC said his first inclination was to jump in there and get Kline out of there as it was clearly a mismatch of 5-on-1 and a size differential.  As he got closer, he said he changed his mind and thought he might have to save the 5th graders from Kline.  Kid's tough as nails and doesn't have an off switch.

So it looks like LCC will be meeting up with Scecina in regionals.  It's been a 9-year wait, but these two will meet again albeit it won't be in LOS.  These two met in both 2011 and 2012 at LOS with LCC winning both including the last meeting, 14-0.  Both teams were also in the first class of SF bumped teams, with Scecina being the poster school for teams being bumped, but not having a blue ring in the process. 

This is a game of teams that have a history of being-there-and-doing-that although Scecina's been a fixture in 2A since the move via SF and also have a couple of state titles in 2A from  previous enrollment numbers back in the 90s.  LCC's no stranger to post-season play.  Fun fact:  LCC's the only Indiana high school to make 5 or more visits to state and never come home with a red ring.  LCC's last foray into 2A saw them drop a second round sectional match by 4 points to eventual 2A runner-up, Tipton, in 2013 and a semi-final by 3 points to eventual 2A champ RCHS in 2014 before returning back to 1A in 2015 to a state title.

Scecina comes off a sectional championship beating previously-unbeaten Centerville.  They have losses this season to 2A Speedway, whom LCC just beat last night for their sectional title, 2A Heritage Christian, and 1A Lutheran who is likely the favorite to represent 1A South.  LCC comes off and three-quarter back-and-forth mixed with a shutout 4th in their 56-35 win over Speedway.  LCC also has losses this season to 3A Tri-West, 3A West Lafayette, and two loses to 2A Tipton.  Calpreps says Scecina by 7, but the game's being held at LCC, so I'm thinking maybe closer to a 3-point cushion for Scecina.  LCC will benefit tremendously if they can bring that defense that played in the 4th quarter last night.

Nice write up..... How many times did the Sparkplugs punt the ball?........

Neither one of the teams seems to have entered stats yet on the game, but looks like one in the 3rd quarter and one in the fourth according to the scorer at the game. 

Given the other activity, that seems about right.  LCC had two strip-fumble recoveries in the 4th and a sack that led to a punt ... all by Kline.  Add in a turnover on downs at the end, two picks for the Knights, including a pick-6, and a turnover on a missed field goal, plus the five scores and it looks like Speedway had roughly 13 possessions for the game and lost four of them directly to the defense taking them away.
