Young Indy team will learn from Scotland loss

By Ron Morris

A week removed from a lop-sided loss to Mallard Creek, the Independence Patriots faced their second test of the season last Friday night when the  Fightin’ Scots from Scotland County came calling.

Forty-eight minutes later, Scotland County’s sophomore running back  Zamir White had run over the Patriots’ defense for 296 yards and 6  touchdowns on 29 carries. White even completed one pass for 4 yards in a 42-13 win for the Scots.

Scotland County coach Richard Bailey said, “We played great tonight. The  offensive line was unbelievable. We introduced a new wrinkle, the Wildcat,  and Indy had a hard time with that all night.”

After trailing 28-0, the Patriots got some offensive momentum late in the  second quarter when Senior quarterback Christian McPhail hit Duane  Perkins for a 30 yard touchdown pass to close the score to 28-7 at half  time. […]

Rocky River: Game Week 3

Who: Rocky River (0-2) hosts Sun Valley (1-1)

When: 7 p.m.

Last Meeting: Rocky River won, 21-14, on September 5, 2014

Key Players: Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton; Sun Valley: quarterback Sam Howell, running backs Fabrice Funderburke PJ Lotharp, defensive backs CJ Maddox and Jeremiah Miller, linebackers Cameron Timberlake and Thomas Mobley, linemen Michael Head, Austin Matthews and Steven Tousa.

The Keys: This has become a growing rivalry game as the two teams have met each of the previous two seasons in a Week 3 match-up. The Ravens are having trouble controlling the line of scrimmage and came up just short last week against Berry. Sun Valley is putting points on the board in bunches, as the Spartans are averaging 44 points a game. The Ravens defense must come to play if they want to get into the win column, but Sun Valley has had its own struggles defensively, especially against the run, so it could turn into a shootout. […]

Independence: Game Week 3

By Andrew Stark

Who: Independence (0-2) at Olympic (0-1)

When: 7 p.m.

Last Meeting: Independence won, 35-0, on Nov. 14, 2014

Key Players: Independence: quarterback Christian McPhail, running back Quantavious McGill, cornerback/receivers Elijah Small and Cedric Stone, linebackers Tylon Clawson, Jerome Cochran and Rob Casanova, defensive ends Christian Colon and Kima Bell; Olympic: quarterback Dylan Earney, running backs Rikki Manning, Jr. and Marquis Robinson, Jr., receiver Isaiah Boswell, defensive backs Martin Delgado, Jordan Daniles and Dushawn Hemphill, linebacker Jaz Young, lineman Joshua Allen.

The Keys: The Patriots have won each of the past seven meeting between the two teams and badly need a win to get the season rolling. They may be going to the right place to do just that as the Trojans didn’t show much pop in Week 1. However, Olympic has had a week to think about their lackluster performance and prepare for the Patriots after taking an early-season bye last week.

Independence:  It’s hard to imagine the Patriots have scored just 19 points and surrendered 100 in their first two games, but that’s the reality in 2015.  […]
