Jay Royals Beat The Northview Chiefs (With Gallery)

October 7, 2017

The Jay Royals beat the Northview Chiefs for the first time in a decade Friday night. The Royals topped the Chiefs 48-18 in Jay.

“Early turnovers hurts us,” Northview Coach Dereck Marshman said. “Big plays and missed tackles work hand in hand….we felt pretty good about our preparation on tackling coming in, but it failed us. And then we’ve got to learn to finish drives. We moved the ball between the 30 and 30 pretty good, but once we got into the red zone, it just stopped. The better team tonight won.”

The Chiefs were the first on the scoreboard on a hand-off from quarterback Seth Killam to sophomore Aunterio Minor from eight yards out. With a missed point after attempt, the Chiefs were up 6-0 with 9:35 to go in the first quarter.

The Royals responded with six points of their own in the first quarter before exploding in the second quarter with 24 more points. The Chiefs were held to just six more points on a Trent Peebles touchdown dive with 1:17 to go in the second quarter.

At the half, the Royals were up 30-12.

The Royals added another TD in the third and two touchdowns in the fourth. The Chiefs’ only score of the second half came as Tim Bush score a touchdown with 3:43 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Jay Royals improved to 2-5 with the win. Northview’s season record fell to 1-6.

The Royals will face J.U. Blacksher of Uriah, AL, next Friday night. The Chiefs will celebrate homecoming as they  host Pensacola Catholic in Bratt.

“We will reevaluate everything from the top down — coach, players — everything will be reevaluated,” Marshman said of the preparation for Catholic. Despite of a 1-7 record, Catholic will be one of the top teams Northview plays this season, he said. “It’s going to be a great challenge for us. They have great program with a lot of tradition.”

FHSAA Releases Local Football Playoff Point Standings

October 4, 2017

The Florida High School Athletic Association has released current projected football playoff points to date for local high school teams.

Beginning this season, district play has been eliminated in Classes 1A-4A, with teams making the playoffs based on a points system. Classes 5A-8A retain districts, with the district champion receiving an automatic playoff bid.

For Classes 1A-4A, no region or district play is required, with each school controlling its own schedule. Four teams from each region (16 total statewide) will make the playoffs based on the new points system.

District play for Class 5A-8A remains, with 32 teams qualifying for the playoffs in each class. District champions will receive an automatic bid to the playoff and will receive a 1-4 seed based on the new points system. Four wild cards will be taken from each region based on points following the conclusion of Week 11.

Bottom Line for North Escambia Schools: Tate is tops in District 1-Class 6A. The Northview Chiefs are currently seventh in Region 1-Class 1A (not in a playoff spot).

UWF Defeats FIT, 23-21, On Unbelievable Final Sequence

October 1, 2017

UWF place kicker Austin Williams tweeted earlier in the week about how his desire to kick a game-winning field goal for the first time in his career. On Saturday night he got his wish.

In the most bizarre and fortunate ending in UWF’s brief 15-game history, the Argonauts were the beneficiary of an intentional grounding penalty on fourth down with time having appeared to have expired, only to gain possession on downs with one tic left and have Williams kick the game-winning 44-yard field goal as time expired for an amazing, 23-21, win at Panther Stadium in Saturday night.

UWF (3-1, 1-1 Gulf South) finished with 314 yards and got timely stops on defense numerous times in the second half, which played a big part in the Argonauts retaining the Coastal Classic trophy for the second-consecutive year. The trophy started last season as an added bonus to the rivalry between the only Division II football playing schools in the state of Florida. UWF upset then 16th-ranked FIT last year, 42-39, in Pensacola.

This year UWF had to overcome a strong effort from Florida Tech’s Antwaun Haynes, who finished with 170 yards on 31 carries. His 1-yard scoring run midway through the third quarter put the Panthers ahead 20-13.

But the Argonauts responded on the next possession with a 15-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a Chris Schwarz touchdown from a yard out to pull the visitors to within 21-20. Schwarz had 16 carries for a career-high 76 yards as UWF finished with 115 on the ground.

The teams traded punts on the next six possessions after Schwarz’s run before the turnover on downs.

FIT opened the scoring in the first quarter when backup quarterback Trent Chmelik found Corey Lane on a out route for a 14-yard touchdown. UWF used the longest play of the night 50 seconds later when Mike Beaudry connected with Ka’Ron Ashley for 76 yards down the right sideline to tie the game at 7-7. Ashley ended the game with three receptions for 94 yards – both career-highs for the redshirt freshman.

On the ensuing possession Chmelik called his own number from three yards out for a 14-7 edge. Williams made two field goals – including one with 34 seconds left in the half – to pull the Argos within 14-13 at the intermission.

Williams logged three field goals, including a school-record long with the 43-yarder in the first half and the game-winner from 44 yards at the end of the night. The sophomore transfer also put four of his five kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. He is now 8-of-9 on the year – and a perfect 3-for-3 from 40-yards or more – with a team-high 35 points.

Josh Marshall made a career-high 13 tackles on defense, while Josh Smiley added 11 stops, one for loss and a pass break-up.

FIT (3-2, 2-1) outgained UWF, 380-314, with the sizeable edge on the ground with a 253-115 margin.

Tate Gets District Win Over Washington (With Photo Gallery)

September 30, 2017

The Tate High School Aggies beat the Washington Wildcats for the sixth straight time Friday night at Pete Gindl Stadium in Cantonment. With the 35-17 win, the Aggies improved to 4-0 overall, 1-0 in  District 1-6A.

Junior quarterback Hunter Riggan put the Aggies on the board late in the first quarter from less than a yard out, and Tate was up 7-0 with 1:48 on the clock.

Washington would strike back from about their own 20 yard line just inside the first quarter, 7-7. The Aggies scored again with 7:17 to go in the second quarter. Riggan found senior Alex Young for a touchdown, 14-7 the Aggies back on top.

Washington managed a field goal to wrap up the first half scoring, Tate on top 14-10 headed to the lockers.

Tate increased their lead to 21-10 with 3:59 to go in the third on a pass from Riggan to Patrick Palmer just inside the end zone.

Washington scored with 10:29 to go in the ballgame, 21-17.

Shemari Jones scored another Aggie touchdown with 5:51 in the fourth, and the Aggies added one more TD just over a minute to go for the final 35-17.

Tate sits out next week with an open date before facing Escambia at October 13. The Aggies and the Gators are tied for the top spot in District 1-6A, both at 1-0.
