Five Redskins, three Rockets earn all-league honors

What was arguably the best season in school history for Port Clinton resulted in them receiving a great deal of respect from the rest of the conference.

Five Redskins earned all-league status in the Sandusky Bay Conference for their efforts, accounting for eight spots on the first and second teams, as voted on by the coaches.

Huron, the league champion, earned 12 spots, followed by Clyde (10), Perkins (nine) and Port Clinton (eight). All four teams qualified for the playoffs. Tiger RB/LB Tommy Bogden was the league's Player of the Year.

Huron, which advanced to the Division V Regional Semifinals before falling to reigning state champion Coldwater, 40-14, went 10-2 overall and 6-0 in the conference, while Clyde (10-2), which faces Central Catholic in the Div. III Regional Final on Friday, finished 4-2 in the league, tied with Perkins (7-4) for second place. The Pirates, meanwhile, were recently knocked out of the Div. III Playoffs by Norwalk, 42-34, in the first round.

Port Clinton, which finished 7-4, went 3-3 in the league and finished alone in fourth place, fell to Kenton, 49-14, last week, and was followed by Oak Harbor (3-7, 2-4 SBC) and Margaretta (4-6, 0-6 SBC) in the conference. (Previous member, St. Mary Central Catholic, joined the Sandusky River League during the offseason.)

The final score wouldn't indicate it, but the game between Port Clinton and Kenton was quite competitive for the first 24 minutes of play.

But, ultimately, several key Redskin miscues cost them and what should've been a close game at halftime turned into a 21-point lead for the Wildcats, who later put the game out of a reach with a dominant performance in the second half of their 49-14 victory over Port Clinton in the first round of the Division IV State Playoffs. 

Kenton, which advances to play Wooster Triway in the regional semifinals, got on the board early, scoring on their first possession after forcing a punt. Quarterback Trent Hites found Kollin Stollar for a four-yard touchdown on third-and-goal with 9 minutes, 43 seconds left in the first quarter to start the scoring, and Chris Deardorff's extra point made it 7-0. The score was set up on the first play of the drive when Hites found Deardorff on a 49-yard pass down the left sideline, moving the ball to the Redskin 9-yard-line.

Following two straight losses, Port Clinton needed a win to build some momentum heading into the playoffs. 

Despite struggling at times, the Redskins got just that, defeating Edison, 20-14, behind two big plays on special teams that helped to swing momentum in their favor and give them the lead late in this gritty, hard-fought contest.
