“C” team falls to Issaquah
The new turf at Issaquah was not a hospitable surface for the
Cedarcrest “C” football team, which lost 36-0,
the last week of September.
Issaquah scored first with a long scamper and a 2-point conversion
to take an early 8-0 lead. The Indians played stifling defense, stopping
the Cedarcrest offense in the half. Running backs Eli Hotchkiss and
Russell McGinnis could not run the ball, and quarterback Jacob Ballingham
could not get the ball to any receivers.
During the entire game, the offense had only one first down, giving
the punter, McGinnis, an opportunity to sharpen his skills.
Special-team players also had their chances to improve their skills
during the game. The kickoff return team returned five kickoffs in the first half
and one in the second. Hotchkiss and James Ihlenfeldt ran well behind
the blocking of the kickoff team. Ihlenfeldt also made two huge
gains on kickoff reverses.
The first one put Cedarcrest in Issaquah territory, but ended after
a fourth down. With two big pass plays and three sustained drives,
Issaquah had scored 36 unanswered points by the end of the first half.
The second half saw an improved Cedarcrest defense. The defensive
line of Joe Richards, Sean Merz, Adam DeJarnett, Ricky Cardin,
Ihlenfeldt and Andrew Ihlenfeldt (substituted in groups of four) kept the Issaquah
offense at bay.
At inside linebacker positions, Jared McKie and Jason Zeigler
helped keep the runs short, and from the cornerback position, Mark
Hensel made tackles and even recovered a fumble.
Matt Warner missed an interception on what could have been the
one scoring opportunity of the game for Cedarcrest. A quick pass hit his
chest as he was getting into position, while an open field lay before him, had
he been able to get his hands on the ball.
Besides the defense having a good second half, there were other
positives to the game. The only fumbles made were recovered by Cedarcrest – one
a recovery of their own fumble and one a recovery of Issaquah’s.
