The 69th annual Marblehead VFW-Danbury Football banquet was held Thursday evening November 13 at the Danbury St. Paul Lutheran social hall with fifteen varsity players attending with their fathers.  Pastor Chris Young delivered the invocation prior to the meal, which was prepared by the Lutheran Ladies and served by the Junior Varsity football team.  

Afterwards Danbury Athletic Director, Drew Davie, welcomed everyone and praised those who cooked the delicious dinner.  Head Coach Bryan Dudash went into detail about the dedication and hard work of the Laker football team in which the 3-7 record does not indicate that we were out-played in every game.  We were competitive in most of the games through good weather and bad and we have a starting point for next years returning players.  

Marblehead VFW Commander, Bob Peroni, emphasized the importance of not only playing football, but also other sports as a way of using teamwork in their future endeavors, no matter what career you choose in life.  Commander Peroni and Dave Groene distributed to the seniors their football portrait and the trophies to the award-winning athletes.  And a special thank-you must be given to Charlie Scott and St. Paul Lutheran church for collaborating with the Marblehead VFW to continue this long-standing tradition.

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.)

Port Clinton falls to Kenton in the playoffs, 49-14

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.
