The Beechcroft Cougars had an up-and-down regular season playing well in some games and bad in others.

But they are still a dangerous team with Maurice Hale, Khaleed Franklin and Arthur Thomas.

Two of the those players are the reason that the Cougars upset fellow City League member Marion-Franklin on Saturday in the Division II tournament at Dublin Scioto.

Franklin scored 23 points and Thomas scored 16 to help Beechcroft (9-14) advance with a 69-65 win.

The Red Devils who trailed by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter, cut the deficit to two late with back-to-back three pointers.

Marion-Franklin, who ends the season at 10-11, were led by Marquiez Lawrence with 10 and Demetrius Walker with 14.

The Beechcroft Cougars of the Columbus City League North Division survived poor free throw shooting of 3-for-15 to beat City South Division foe Independence in Division II tournament action, 54-53 Monday night.

Khaleed Franklin scored 20 points for the Cougars, but the real hero was Maurice Hale who scored with 0.1 of a second left in regulation, as Beechcroft improves to 7-14.

The game at Dublin Scioto saw the 76ers rally from a 14-point deficit to take its first lead of the game. But Independence took a risk and fouled the Cougars four times in the last 20 seconds to put them in the 1-1 bonus.

Chris Johnson led the 76ers with 17 points and they end the season at 8-13.

HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE: East hangs on to beat South, 63-59 in City League crossover game

 

In our Tuesday night edition of HIGH SCHOOL BOUNCE, we had a City League crossover game between, the South Bulldogs of the South Division at the East Tigers of the North Division.

The Tigers held on with a 63-59 escape over South.

Darius White scored 21 points to lead the way followed by James Davis with 18 as host East improves to 8-12 on the season.

South drops to 6-14 on the season. Quite an improvement in 2012. Last year at this time the Bulldogs were winless heading into the OHSAA playoffs. Ramon Spears, their head coach is doing a solid job.

The game marked Senior night for the East team. The home crowd honored the four-year players with a thanks for the memories reflection with the program. Leaving after the season will be Torre’ Smith, White, David Dorsey and Hasan Strothers-Harris.

The visiting Bulldogs started slowly, while the Tigers led 17-10 after one quarter, with White leading the way with seven points.

One of the reasons that East controlled the first half of play and led at the half, 30-22, was that they held South center, 6’8 Ellis Williams scoreless and he had to leave the game early with two quick fouls. With Williams out of the game, Davis scored six points in the second quarter.

The pace of the game picked up in the 3rd quarter as South got Williams back in the game and involved in the offense with eight points, but they trailed by 14 at 42-28. But South cut the lead down to only 4 points with a 14-4 run to end the third quarter trailing 46-42.

In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs took control and led by four at 55-51 on two Deone Lindsay free throws with 3:24 to go in regulation.

From that point on the East Tigers used their press and drives to the basket to get fouled and won the game at the free throw line.

The Buckeye Muffler & Brake Shop Player of the Game was East High senior White.

An interesting twist to this game is that both schools are in Division II and in the upcoming OHSAA tournament, the two teams will play each other at Dublin Scioto on Wednesday, February 22 at 7:45 pm.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Daxton Cates, Westerville South High School RB

The Westerville South High School Wildcats always have a top-notch running back. Several years ago, there was Ki-jana Carter. Last year there was Jayshon Jackson, who broke all of Carter’s rushing records.

Jackson made tackles miss and grab air as he ran behind the offensive line. During the past two seasons, Jackson carried the ball 700 + times and surpassed 2,000-yards twice.

Jackson was only 5’8, 180-pounds but in 2010, he rushed for 2,583 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Jackson is playing this season at Grand Rapids Community College in Michigan.

After last season, Westerville South fans wondered who would fill the shoes of Jackson running the football. They probably forgot that there was a very capable back-up waiting in the wings named Daxton Cates.

Cates was very solid in 2010, rushing for 512 yards and 8 touchdowns on 92 carries.

South head football coach Rocky Pentello said all along that Cates was more than capable of being the next big-time running back for the Wildcats. And he has.

Cates is bigger than Jackson, at 5-feet-10, 215-pounds. He can run around and over tacklers on the field.

Cates has picked up where Jackson left off. In Week 1 of the 2011 season against Groveport in a 47-18 win, the senior rushed for 229 yards on 17 carries and 2 touchdowns.

In week 2, a 27-14 loss at Dublin Coffman, Cates improved to 236 yards on 30 carries, an 88-yard TD run. He had 216 yards in the first half.

Week 3 at Grove City in a 41-34 loss, Cates carried the ball 31 times, gaining 217 yards with 2 TD’s.

In week 4 at the newest high school in town, Westerville Central, the Wildcats won 28-22 and Cates led the way with 158 yards rushing. He was on a pace to gain 1,000-yards by week 6 of the season.

The Wildcats running attack is in good hands once again!

Westerville South is in one of the top conferences in the state of Ohio, the Ohio Capital Conference, Cardinal Division. The division has Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Marysville, Olentangy, Olentangy Liberty, Westerville Central and Westerville North. The Wildcats are the kingpins of the division winning the title in 2010 with a 9-3 record overall and a playoff berth. They were 6-1 in their league.

From all of the recruiting reports, Cates is receiving interest from Ohio University, Wisconsin, Akron, Saginaw Valley State, Bowling Green and Ohio State’s name has been mentioned as well.

The name Cates is familiar around Westerville. His cousin, Wes Cates, was a standout running back at Westerville North and is a Hall of Famer at California University of Pennsylvania where he compiled 5,647 total yards.

We’d like to thank Westerville South head football coach Rocky Pentello for allowing us to watch practice, to take photos and talk to Daxton Cates.
