WAYNESFIELD, OHIO — The 2010 high school football season opened last Friday night for the PeakofOhio.com broadcast team of John Kench and Stuart Mason in Auglaize County with a match between two old rivals of the now-defunct West Central Ohio Conference, Triad Cardinals and Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers.

The two schools are now in different conferences, Triad in the tough Ohio Heritage and Waynesfield-Goshen plays in the Northwest Central Ohio.

These two schools have played each other for the past several years and the Cardinals won in North Lewisburg, Ohio in 2010, 38-23.

The 2011 meeting would be the final game in the series for awhile.

The Cardinals playing on the road, started off quickly taking the opening drive in for the score for a 7-0 lead as Tre McIntyre took in a 16-yard pass reception at the 10:44 mark of the 1st quarter.

But the Tigers came back on their initial drive and went ahead 8-7 on a Gabe Hennon 1-yard dive into the end zone and a two-point conversion pass reception by Colton Miller. The Tigers first drive actually ended in a punt, but their punter was roughed by Triad pass rush and they were given new life with a fresh set of downs at the Waynesfield-Goshen 42.

After that set of events, Triad took control in all aspects of the game.

Tre McIntyre compiled 194 total yards of offense as the Cardinals won for the second year in a row 39-22.

McIntyre rushed for 94 yards and one touchdown. The 6’0, 185-pound sophomore also accumulated three receptions for 101 yards, including an 80-yard scoring strike from quarterback Colton Young.

Speaking of Young, the 6’0, 180-pound junior play so well, that Cardinals fans did not miss his predecessor Kaleb Deam, at all.

Young passed for 164 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Austin Sanford, a junior split end had a 64-yard punt return and a 1-yard touchdown run for the Cardinals.

GAME NOTES:

*The Northwest Conference, which Waynesfield-Goshen is a member of also consists of Fairbanks, Marion Catholic, Lima Perry, Ridgemont, Riverside, Lima Temple Christian and Upper Scioto Valley.

In 2012, the conference will add three teams as football-only members: Fort Loramie, Lehman Catholic and Troy Christian.

* Triad is a member of the Ohio Heritage Conference. Other members include: Southeastern, West Liberty-Salem, Northeastern, Greeneview, Mechanicsburg, Catholic Central and Cedarville.

Tuesday’s report we’ll have first quarter game highlights from last Friday’s Game.

Virginia Commonwealth University is a member of the NCAA Mid-major conference, Colonial Athletic Association.

The CAA is often disrepected by the national media, but it is a solid conference with VCU, Old Dominion, Northeastern, George Mason, Delaware, Drexel, Georgia State, Hofstra, James Madison, North Carolina-Wilmington and William & Mary.

The 11th-seeded team Rams used a suffocating defense to corral the taller and stronger USC Trojans in winning 59-46. The Rams up their record to 24-11.

Jamie Skeen scored 16 points to lead VCU into a showdown against sixth-seeded Georgetown (21-10) on Friday in Chicago.

Jio Fontan scored 14 points and Nikola Vucevic 11 for USC (19-15), which managed only one field goal over the final 9 minutes of the game.

The Rams shut down Vucevic, a first-team All-Pac-10 performer, was double and triple-teammed and never got into a rhythm.

The halftime score was 22-22.

In the 2nd half, the Rams found their shooting shoes to go up 34-27. USC came back  to 44-43 but VCU pulled away never to give up the lead ever again.

Shaka Smart, the VCU coach was making a return to UD Arena. He used to be on the staff of the Dayton Flyers under Oliver Purnell as the head of basketball operations in the last decade.

The Wright State men’s basketball team will be hosting Hofstra on Saturday, February 19, at 11 am Eastern time on ESPNU as part of the annual BracketBuster event.

The game will be one of 11 games televised on the ESPN family of networks. WSU has been chosen for an ESPN format game for the fourth time in the last five years.

The Raiders are 17-9, 10-4 in the Horizon League, while Hofstra is 14-8, 8-3 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

Wright State is 3-3 all-time in BracketBuster games, having won the first three over Northern Illinois in 2005, Bowling Green in 2006 and Cal State Fullerton in 2007. They have lost the past three years to Illinois State in 2008, Northeastern in 2009 and Ohio in 2010.

Butler cruises to Horizon League title as Wright State can’t get untracked

Indianapolis, IN- Anytime that Wright State and Butler get together, the games are usually tight, hard-fought and played with a high-skill level.

Shelvin Mack hot from 3-point land (BU)

This season however, Butler has beaten the Raiders three straight games. However, the other two games were not a blow out as Tuesday night’s Horizon League Championship game ended up, 70-45 for the Bulldogs. Butler earns the Horizon League’s automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.

You’d expect a better showing by the number 2 seed in the league, but on this night, the home team, Butler had everything going in their favor. Hosting the tournament at their home gym, venerable Hinkle Fieldhouse; winning 19 games in a row in the Horizon League; not having lost a game of any kind since December 22, 2009 at Alabama-Birmingham, 67-57; being 15-0 at Hinkle and their head coach Brad Stevens having a 6-1 record against Wright State.

The game started out as most games do when Butler is playing at home, they dominate from the beginning. At the first TV timeout, 15:38, the Bulldogs were up 9-2. Wright State was turning the ball over and looked rattled. In Saturday’s semi-final game against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Raiders looked confident. Last night, they looked like they had never played in Hinkle Fieldhouse before or had never played before a national television audience on ESPN.

Matt Howard shoots over Ronnie Thomas (BU)

N’Gai Evans tried to do his best to keep the Raiders in the game in the first half. The closest Wright State in the first half was eight points three times: 17-9, 19-11 and 21-8. But the visiting Raiders, usually a solid defensive team, couldn’t stop the hot-shooting Bulldogs who kept scoring at will all over the court.

Behind Shelvin Mack and his 3-point shooting (4 of 6) and 14 total points, Butler cruised to a 42-28 halftime advantage. The Bulldogs shot 66.7% (14-21) from the field including 61.5% (8-13) from three-point land. If it weren’t for the Bulldogs getting overanxious on offense and committing 10 turnovers, the score could’ve been 62-28. Matt Howard was his usual physical self in the paint scoring 8 points.

The Raiders on the other hand, didn’t shoot the ball in the first half, at 48.1% but were 1-7 from the 3-point arc and their best players were in foul trouble: Ronnie Thomas with 3, Todd Brown and Troy Tabler had 2 each.

The second became a nightmare out of Elm Street for the Raiders. The halftime advantage went from 42-28 to 51-30 to 57-34 and 63-37 and the final of 70-45. All told, Wright State only scored 17 points in the second half and shot 20% from the floor. They played so miserably that head coach Brad Brownell apologized to the media for his team’s showing.

The Raiders for now, end up at 20-12 with three of their losses to the Top 10 ranked Butler Bulldogs. The buzz around press row late in the second half and after the game was that the Raiders have shown enough with their RPI being at  97 and the non-conference schedule of  Washington, Belmont, Northeastern, Mississippi State and Ohio, that the NIT will come calling next weekend. Maybe matching them up against Dayton, Cincinnati or one of the MAC schools that won’t make the NCAA field. The Raiders should’ve made a post-season tournament the last two years, but two of the post season tournaments want teams to pay for their own expenses and/or guarantee a certain gate receipt money and Wright State, being a mid-major school won’t commit to that kind of tournament. But the NIT doesn’t require teams to pay, so that would be a good option for the Raiders.

Wright State has several seniors who would like to redeem themselves after Tuesday night’s debacle: Cory Cooperwood, Todd Brown and Ronnie Thomas.

A crowd of 6,065 saw Butler being led in scoring by: Shelvin Mack and Matt Howard with 14 points apiece, Zach Hahn with 11 and Willie Veasley adding 9.

Wright State was led by N’Gai Evans who scored 13 with Cory Cooperwood and Vaughn Duggins each putting up 9 points.
