Postseason football awards announced Israel Potoczny israel@lebanondailyrecord.com Nov 25, 2008 After one of the most successful football seasons in school history, the Lebanon football team had 13 athletes receive All-Ozark Conference honors. Named to the first team were Ryan Howerton (quarterback), Justin Britt (offensive line), Phillip Archer (wide receiver), Brett Smith (running back), Trevor Byrd (defensive line) and Josh Dykstra (linebacker). Second team selections were Britt (defensive line), Byrd (defensive line), Trey Overstreet (wide receiver), Tyler Bethel (wide receiver), Justin Mather (offensive line) and Jake O’Quinn (defensive end). Justin Mather was a second-team selection at both offensive line and linebacker. Honorable mention selections were Zack Cooley (offensive line), Dave Stewart (offensive line), Josh Mattes (wide receiver) and Austin Harris (defensive back). The Lebanon football team was 7-5 overall, 5-2 Ozark Conference and advanced to a Missouri Class 5 sectional playoff game after defeating Glendale in a regional playoff game.
Battle of wills Israel Potoczny The Daily Record Nov 8, 2008 Monday’s Class 5 Sectional game between Lebanon (7-4) and Raymore-Peculiar (9-1) will feature two different approaches to accomplishing the same goal — score points. Ray-Pec, the state’s No. 1 ranked Class 5 team, has used a misdirection attack to average 39 points, while Lebanon has used the spread to average 33. “It will be an interesting match-up because it is a difference in the style’s of football from that area to here,” Lebanon head coach Will Christian said. Ray-Pec features as balanced an offensive attack as you will find. They average 194 yards rushing and pass for 195 yards per game. They average 5.2 yards per rush. 11.7 per pass. “We have to bottle them in,” Christian said. “We have to eleminate the surge and that is something we do well. I think with our defensive line, Justin Britt and Trevor Byrd, they play well. We just have to do a good job with that misdirection, and eleminate their offensive line from kicking our teeth in.” The Ravens have played five Class 6 teams, including two, Blue Springs and Blue Springs South, that are powerhouses, and another in Liberty that is 7-3. Joplin, a team that tied with Camdenton for the Ozark Conference crown, has been blown out in recent years by the Class 6 Kansas City schools. This year, Lee’s Summit North (who was 2-5 when they played the Eagles) did not attempt a pass and rolled up more than 600 yards rushing en route to a 63-35 win over Joplin. “Kansas City is a pretty heavy run area,” Christian said. “If you were to break down the best teams in Kansas City, they all have quarterbacks and throw the ball well, but they run the ball first.” Christian said Ray-Pec’s strength is on defense where they feature two NCAA Division I recruits. The Ravens allow 20 points per game. “I think we’ll be able to do some things offensively, and anything can happen,” Christian said. Match-ups to watch Andrew Wilson, a 6-foot-4 230-pound linebacker, is a University of Missouri recruit, against the Lebanon running attack. LHS senior Brett Smith has rushed for more than 1,000 yards and is averaging 6.7 yards per carry. “Wilson is a stud, by far the best linebacker we have seen all season,” Christian said. “He is like having a tank in there, he is a beast. “He is extremely important to them and their success.” Lebanon senior Justin Britt, a University of Missouri recruit against Ray-Pec’s Josh Johnson, a 6-foot-9 260-pound defensive end, who is a Kansas State University recruit. “That will be an interesting match-up, a couple of Division I kids going against each other,” Christian said. Lebanon passing attack against Ray-Pec’s defense. While it is safe to say the Yellowjackets haven’t seen a run attack like Ray-Pec’s, it is doubtful the Ravens have seen a passing attack like the ‘Jackets. LHS is averaging nearly 300 yards passing per game. “We just have to do what we do,” Christian said. “I think we’ll move the chains. We will have to throw the ball well to beat them, but it will have to be a balanced attack. “We need them to be in a spot where they’re not sure if we’re going to run it or throw it.”
NO CONTEST - LHS wins first football playoff game since 1993 Israel Potoczny israel@lebanondailyrecord.com Nov 6, 2008 SPRINGFIELD — Brett Smith was everywhere on Wednesday. Playing in a Missouri Class 5 Regional playoff, Lebanon’s first playoff game since 2000, Smith had his biggest game to date on both offense and defense as Lebanon defeated Glendale, 35-10 on Wednesday at John F. Kennedy Stadium in Springfield. Lebanon recorded its second football playoff win in school history. The other win came in 1993. LHS advance to a Class 5 Sectional, where the team will play on Monday at Raymore Peculiar (9-1), the state’s No. 1 ranked team. A heavy cross wind slowed the Yellowjackets passing attack on Wednesday and for the first time this season, Lebanon failed to pass for 100 yards. Senior quarterback Ryan Howerton, who entered the game with 3,040 passing yards, completed 14-of-21 passes for just 91 yards. Enter Smith. The wind, didn’t slow the 5-foot-10, 165-pound senior, as he ran the ball 34 times for more than 200 yards and capped the Lebanon’s scoring with a two-yard run in the fourth quarter. “I thought he ran with an unbelievable amount of passion and effort tonight,” Lebanon head coach Will Christian said. Buoyed by the play of offensive linemen Justin Britt, Trevor Byrd, Justin Mather, Dave Stewart and Zack Cooley, Smith passed the 1,000 yard rushing mark this season on Wednesday. “Britt, Mather and Byrd, all three of them were just awesome,” Christian said. “Stewart and Cooley played really well too. Smith’s season yardage is even more impressive when you consider the offensive transformation LHS has undergone this season. Smith’s 1,000 yards came despite playing in an offense that is averaging nearly 40 pass attempts per game. “I am very proud of him (Smith),” Christian said. “He has been very unselfish knowing that he wasn’t going to get the ball as much in the new system (spread) as he would have in the old (last years Power I).” But in addition to his standout performance running the ball on Wednesday, his play on defense might have been equally important. On a night in which Glendale could muster just 143 yards on the ground, Smith made his first start of the season at corner and helped the LHS defense set the tone early. On the Falcons second play of the game, Smith met tailback Evan Leake five yards deep in the backfield and caused the junior to cough up the ball. Smith then wrestled away the ball for the fumble recovery and seven plays later, Howerton scampered 10 yards for his 14th rushing touchdown of the season. It appeared as though Glendale might seize the momentum as Leake intercepted Howerton on the ‘Jackets next possession, which led to a JR Reynolds field goal. But Lebanon took over at its own 36-yard line with 6:20 remaining in the first half. Lebanon peeled nearly six minutes off the clock on a 64 yard drive that was capped by Trey Overstreet’s 12-yard strike from Howerton with 45 seconds remaining in the second quarter. The ‘Jackets defense opened the second half by forcing a three-and-out on the first possession, and Overstreet gave LHS a 21-3 lead with 7:31 remaining in the third quarter. The 40-yard reverse, sprung by a big block by senior Phillip Archer, essentially put the game out of reach. Glendale cut the LHS lead to 21-10 on its next possession, but the LHS defense forced four Glendale interceptions in the second half, including one that was tipped by Smith and recovered by Justin Mather. “Defending that triple option attack when you don’t see it, it is hard,” Christian said. “I was very pleased with our kids and our (defensive coordinator John) Franks for having them ready to play. “I thought they did a good job of bending, but not breaking, and more importantly, getting key turnovers.” Christian said the play of the ‘Jackets defensive linemen, Justin Britt, Trevor Byrd and Dalton Pierce, helped slow down the Falcons ground attack. “It was extremely important that the defensive line eliminate that surge that (Glendale) has gotten the past four weeks),” Christian said. “When we watched tape, they got off the football and we were scared to death,” Christian said. “Our defensive line took that away.”
LHS to face Waynesville’s black and orange on Friday Israel Potoczny israel@lebanondailyrecord.com Oct 30, 2008 Lebanon will play its the biggest game the football program has been a part of since 2000 on Halloween — against a team whose colors are black and orange. The Waynesville Tigers, the defending 2007 Missouri Class 5 state champions enter Friday’s game needing a win to have a chance at making the playoffs, while LHS needs a win to clinch a playoff berth. A Lebanon loss would put the focus on Camdenton, who would need to erase a 14-point deficit in the district standings to wrestle a district title away from LHS. Lebanon head coach Will Christian said he has preached that Friday’s game is a must-win. “I think (the need to win on Friday) definitely eliminates any relaxation or letdown,” Christian said. “I think they’re (the team) is locked in and they know they have to do what they have done the last two weeks. Lebanon has made just three football playoff appearances in school history, the last coming in 2000. The Yellowjackets followed a 10-0 season in 1991 with a playoff appearance and won its only playoff game in 1993. Christian said a win on Friday is big for the program, not only because it eliminates the potential tiebreaker scenarios, but because it makes the team a district champion and ensures extra rest and preparation for its playoff opponent. “A district championship in the program is gigantic,” Christian said. As district champions, Lebanon would next play on Monday, Nov. 10. The runner-up will play on Wednesday, No. 5. “I think (playing on Nov. 10) is a big advantage,” Christian said. “It will be interesting to see how it plays out ... our opponent (on Nov. 10) will have to play on Wednesday and it will be interesting to see how them getting four days of preparation to our getting nine to see the difference. “I’m hoping we’ll be able to see how that pans out.” Christian said several members of the junior high coaching staff will be serving as scouts on Friday, watching potential playoff opponents. About Waynesville. ... Perhaps the biggest difference between the 2007 version of the Waynesville Tigers and the 2008 version is its defense. Led by Northern Iowa recruit L.J. Fort, the 2007 version Waynesville is 5-4 this season, and its defense is a far cry from the 2007 defense that allowed just 10 points per game en route to the school’s first state title. They did not allow 20 points in any game, while the 2008 version is allowing an average of 21. Despite those numbers, Christian said the defense is still the Tigers strength, in part because of the play-making ability of senior B.J. Ray, the Class 5 Defensive Player of the Year last year as a junior. Ray nearly single-handedly helped the Tigers defeat Rolla last week, intercepting two passes in the fourth quarter. Trailing 24-21, Ray intercepted Rolla quarterback Ross Parker with 2:49 remaining, setting up the Tigers winning score. Then, after Rolla moved the ball into Waynesville territory, Ray ended the game with an interception with 40 seconds remaining. “You have to account for where he (Ray) is at on every snap,” Christian said. “On our pre-snap reads, Ryan (Howerton) will have to do a very job of knowing where he is and when he is a safety ... do some things to look him off.” The 6-foot-3, 205-pound senior is likewise all over the field on offense. He caught all six completions from junior quarterback Kevin Vereen on Friday. Although he is most often used at receiver, Christian said the Tigers will also use Ray at quarterback. Offensively, the Tigers are a 60-40 run-to-pass team that features two standout running backs, Omar Craddock and Delvon Franklin. Craddock rushed for 193 yards and four touchdowns against Rolla on Friday. “When they have to throw, they’re not as good, but when they are able to be balanced they’re pretty good,” Christian said. “Vereen is very fast, very elusive and is dangerous with his legs. “(Craddock) is pretty explosive, if you give him a seam, he can go, Franklin is more of a downhill runner, and Ray is the X-factor.” Challenge for LHS receivers The ‘Jackets receivers have had a big season as four players have caught at least 30 passes this year. Archer leads Lebanon with 72 catches for 810 yards and 12 touchdowns, Tyler Bethel is averaging nearly 20 yards per catch (31-606) and Trey Overstreet (38-540) and Josh Mattes (41-393) have combined to score six touchdowns. “Our receivers are doing a good job of running quality routes,” Christian said. Waynesville struggled against Joplin defending the pass, but the Tiger defense has also had its share of standout performances. Joplin scored 56 points in a Week 6 win over Waynesville led by senior receiver Dane Kolkmeyer who had nine catches for 171 yards against the Tigers. But Hillcrest, known for its talented receivers, completed just 4-for-18 passes in a 50-13 loss to Waynesville. Worried about comebacks If there is a carry over effect from the 2007 undefeated state champion Waynesville team, it might be a never-say-die attitude the team plays with. Waynesville has posted big comebacks this season, including Friday’s win over Rolla in which they trailed 24-14 entering the fourth quarter. The Tigers trailed Glendale 23-12 at the end of the third, then scored 27 answered points in the fourth, and posted a comeback against Joplin after trailing 27-7 at the half, and rallied in a loss to West Plains after trailing 28-12. “I know they are 5-4, but they are dangerous,” Christian said. “They are very athletic, and they are lightning in a bottle. “They’ll come back on you. (We) have to keep the pedal on the metal all night because they won’t shut it down by any stretch.”
Lights out! Israel Potoczny The Daily Record Oct 25, 2008 CAMDENTON — Finally, someone turned off the lights. Either the need to usher everyone out of Laker Stadium, or the ignominy of an opponent celebrating on the Lakers home turf, caused the darkness. And perhaps, only the lights being turned off could end the celebration that ensued after Lebanon ended a 15-year losing streak against the Lakers with a 28-21 win on Friday at Camdenton. As Justin Britt and teammates gathered around a hand-held radio to listen to head coach Will Christian’s postgame comments, the lights went out, prematurely ending a celebration that might otherwise lasted all night. Lebanon senior Dalton Pierce said it was fitting hundreds of Lebanon fans celebrated with the players on the field. “(The fans) played a huge role in (the win),” he said. “The fans are great. It seemed like half the town of Lebanon was here and it was great.” Pierce credited an overflow crowd that spilled out of the visters bleachers and onto the track surrounding the field with a crucial delay of game penalty. As the Lakers attempted to drive the ball with the game tied at 21 with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, they faced third-and-21 after Tyler Bethel sacked Camdenton quarterback Kyle Simpson on second down at the Laker 19-yard line. Then the LHS crowd helped force a five yard delay of game penalty. On third-and-26, Simpson found Jake Williams for 16 yards, but the completion was well shy of the first down marker, forcing a Laker punt. “I’m really thankful for the crowd and the student body,” LHS head coach Will Christian said. “I think (the crowd) played a huge part (in the win).” On the ensuing possession, Lebanon took the lead on Phillip Archer’s third touchdown reception of the game. Archer caught a slant pass from Howerton for nine-yards for the secore. It was the second big catch of the drive for Archer, who led LHS with 10 catches for 121 yards. On third-and-10 from the LHS 39, Archer made a diving catch for a 11-yard gain with 5:24 remaining to keep the drive alive. After a holding penalty sent LHS back to its own 38, Howerton found Archer again, only this time he lateralled the ball to Brett Smith. Smith then raced to the Laker nine, setting up Archer’s winning score two plays later. “I just felt like we had to make something happen,” Christian said of the hook-and-ladder play. “We were in a spot where it was second-and-long and we had to get something big. “It is one of those plays where you either get something big, or you get something bad.” Lebanon tied the game on its first possession of the fourth quarter on a 41-yard run by Smith. The score came after LHS got a defensive stand after Camdenton dominated the ball and took a 21-14 lead in the third quarter. LHS ran just three plays in the third quarter, but sacked Simpson on a fourth-and-three from the Lebanon 33-yard line with 11:19 remaining. “That was huge,” Christian said. “It put us in a spot where we could take the lead and we are just fortunante that was the way it worked out.” Camdenton had two opportunities, to tie the game, but both drives were thwarted by Lebanon interceptions. With 3:41 remaining, Camdenton took over at its own 10-yard line after a personal foul was called following the Lebanon kickoff. On the first play from scrimmage, Derek Schiedigger intercepted Simpson and was tackled at the two-yard line. “He (Schiedigger) doesn’t play a bunch, but he does a great job for us and I’m real excited for him,” Christian said. Looking to ice the game at the Camdenton two-yard line, Howerton fumbled the ball and the Lakers recovered at its own two-yard line with 3:29 remaining. Needing to travel 98 yards to tie, the Lakers burned nearly two minutes while moving the ball to its own 24. Facing a third-and-three from their own 22 with 1:03 remaining, Camdenton’s Shane Hardman, the back-up quarterback, attempted a wide receiver pass. But Howerton redeemed himself, picking off the pass and sealed the LHS win. “Howie made a great play,” Pierce said. “He always steps up for us, he has so much heart. “Man, I’d die for him.” The win over Camdenton was the first for LHS since 1993. “There are so many emotions, it is so surreal,” Pierce said. “We practiced, and we prepared for it and when the seconds were rolling off and when you know, I can’t describe it to you in words what I — what we all — felt. “It is amazing. The community wanted it so bad, and we wanted it so bad, it is awesome.” The win marked the first time Lebanon clinched a winning season for LHS, its first since 1998, and ensured a playoff berth for the first time since 2000. “Obviously, all those things make (the win) big, but I think it’s even bigger for what it does for the morale of the program and the development of the program,” Christian said. Lebanon (6-3 overall, 2-0 District 6) will host Waynesville (5-4, 1-1) on Friday. The Tigers defeated Rolla on Friday, 27-24.
For the first time in 15 years, the Lakers left the field against Lebanon with a loss. The Lakers fell to 1-1 in district play with a 28-21 loss to the Yellow Jackets Friday night. Lebanon moved the ball up and down the field in the first quarter, but was unable to score. With the score tied at zero in the beginning of the second quarter, Yellow Jacket QB Ryan Howelton hit Phillip Archen for an 11-yard score. Archen leads the state in passing yards. Blaine Bach and the Camdenton offense answered back with a sc ore of their own. Bach set up the touchdown with a 25 yard scamper. 15-yards was added to the play due to a face mask, to put Camdenton at the nine. Bach punched it in a few plays later from the three to tie the game at seven. Camdenton took the lead later in the second quarter off of a shanked Lebanon punt that gave Camdenton the ball at the Yellow Jacket 20. Simpson punched it in from the one to give the Lakers ahead with just over five minutes left before the half. Howelton hit Archen again for a touchdown, this one from 24 yards out to tie the game at 14. The Lakers came out in the second half and controlled the ball for most of the third quarter. Their opening drive lasted nearly eight minutes, as they drove the length of the field. A pivotal play in the game was the fourth-and 22 that the Lakers faced at around midfield. On the play Simpson scrambled right evaded a would-be-tackler, before rolling left and finding an open Cayden Shockley for the first down. Simpson credited the offensive line for that play for giving him enough time to find Shockley. This was something Simpson would not be afforded late in the game. The drive was capped off with Simpson’s second rushing touchdown of the game. Going into the fourth quarter the Lakers were clinging to a 21-14 lead, and Shore liked his team’s chances. “I felt good, but never felt that confident,” Shore said. “We couldn’t put the game away.” Lebanon’s Brett Smith took over in the fourth quarter, to help put the Yellow Jackets in the lead for good. With 9:55 left he carried the ball 41 yards for a touchdown. But the big play came with 3:41 left when he took a sixty yard screen pass to the eight yard line. Lebanon would score a few plays later to make the score 28-21. On the ensuing kick off, Camdenton took a personal foul penalty to start at the 10 yard line. However Simpson’s first pass of the drive was intercepted, and returned to the two. Camdenton was given one more opportunity when Lebanon fumbled the snap on the next play. However Simpson again was not given time to throw the ball, which Shore said limited the play calling. Despite the loss, Shore said the team could not get down, and had no time to fret over the loss. With two teams advancing from each district, the Lakers are still very much alive for a place in the state playoffs. How the game was won
Line key to success Israel Potoczny israel@lebanondailyrecord.com Oct 23, 2008 Lebanon’s pass-happy offense starts with its ability to protect senior quarterback Ryan Howerton and open holes for its running game. And there is a common theme amongst the starters on the 2008 version of the LHS offensive line. The ability to multi task. All five play a second — or even a third — sport. Lebanon head coach Will Christian said one of the initial reservation he had when considering the switch from the Power I in which the quarterback lines up under center to the spread, in which the quarterback is in the shotgun formation, was the snap. Enter senior Justin Mather (5-foot-11, 205-pounds), whose snapping at center has been perfect through eight games. “He done just an unbelievably great job at snapping for us this year,” Christian said. “It takes a kid (at center) who is able to multi task because he not only has to get the snap, where it is a good snap, but he also has to block. “He has done a great job, and I would credit his hard work.” Lebanon’s pass protection begins with University of Missouri recruit Justin Britt, who is also a standout wrestler. Britt (6-foot-6, 270-pounds) placed fifth as a heavy weight at the state wrestling tournament last season. Like the other four starters, Britt brings quickness and athleticism to the line. Christian said Britt’s play at left tackle, protecting quarterback Ryan Howerton’s blind side has been critical to the team’s success. “He’s got the most stressful job,” Christian said. Zack Cooley (6-foot-5, 220-pounds) is in his first year on the line, moving from tight end. “We really weren’t going to use the blocking tight end anymore, so we felt like for him to benefit our team this best, it would be at tackle,” Christian said. “He brings tremendous leverage with long arms. He moves exceptionally well. “He is playing as well as anybody right now.” Cooley said he brings the skills of a basketball player to the position. “Basketball helps quickness and footwork ... I feel like it is a big positive that I am quick,” he said. “This is my first year on the line, I’ve been a tight end my whole life. It is not that much of a difference, just have to learn how to pass block.” Christian said Cooley was named the team’s blocker of the week after a standout performance against Rolla. “We ran zone run plays to the outside on his side several times and he just manhandled his guy,” Christian said. Christian also said Cooley is pencilled in as the ‘Jackets left tackle next season. Last year, Trevor Byrd was at center, but this year he has moved to left guard, where he brings a bulldog mentality and quickness to the position. “The term I like to use the most for Trevor is ‘War Daddy,’” Christian said. “He is just a fighter, and does a tremendous job pulling. Any time he pulls he does a great job at kickout and trap blocking.” Christian said the Yellowjackets right tackle, Dave Stewart, brings the quickness and agility that he displays on the wrestling mat and the baseball field to the line. “Dave is a big aggressive kid who does a great job at down blocking and is athletic enough to pass block very well,” Christian said. Blocking in chaos As the LHS offense has exploded this season, averaging 35 points and putting up big yardage totals, Christian said the lines biggest challenge has been its opponents blitz packages. “All the different locations the (opponent) can bring pressure, that has been the biggest challenge,” Christian said. “There are times when they are going to bring more than we can block, and that is a situation where we need to hit our hot route — and sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t.” Christian credited offensive line coach Mark Whitacre for the team’s success this season. “We have to watch other teams film and see what their linebackers are going to do,” Cooley said. The future Christian said as many as six sophomores may compete for playing time next season, but listed three juniors among those who will also compete for time next year. Kyle Nelson (5-foot-9, 250-pounds) has seen varsity time this season, starting at right guard against Hillcrest. Brett Light (6-foot-4, 270-pounds), who is currently out with an injury, will compete for time next year at center, and Brandon Culpepper (5-foot-9, 185-pounds) will compete at guard. Culpepper has seen varsity time at linebacker this season.
Bulldog gridders drop district opener at Lebanon -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Dave Roberts The Rolla Daily News Sat Oct 18, 2008, 12:04 AM CDT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Story Tools: Email This | Print This Lebanon, Mo. - Missouri Class 5 District 6 competition got off to a rough start for the Rolla High School football team on Friday night, as the Bulldogs were beaten by the Lebanon Yellow Jackets 33-20. Rolla falls to 6-2 overall and 5-2 in Ozark Conference play. Lebanon improves to 5-3 and 5-2. It was the final conference game for both teams. A victory would have given the Bulldogs a share of the Ozark Conference title. In the other Class 5 District 6 game on Friday Camdenton defeated Waynesville 28-10. That gives both Lebanon and Camdenton 1-0 district marks and plus-13 district points. Rolla and Waynesville are 0-1 with minus-13 district points. Next Friday Rolla travels to Waynesville while Lebanon plays at Camdenton in district competition. Rolla had problems stopping Lebanon’s spread offense, led by senior quarterback Ryan Howerton. Howerton completed 21-of-31 passes for 181 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for another score. The Jackets opened the game with a 75-yard, 10-play scoring drive, which featured five Howerton pass completions. Howerton ended the drive with a two-yard TD run. Howerton’s following PAT kick hit an upright and bounded away, leaving the score 6-0. That remained the score until the final minute of the first half. Lebanon intercepted a Ross Parker pass at the 50 yardline and went nine plays for the score. Howerton hit senior wideout Trey Overstreet with a seven-yard scoring pass with :56 left in the half. He then hit Overstreet with a two-point conversion pass to give Lebanon a 14-0 halftime edge. Rolla took its first possession of the second half and scored, courtesy of a Cameron Fore breakaway run. On a 4th-and-1 situation Fore took a handoff, busted up the middle for the first down and then got to the right sidelines for a 57-yard TD run. Tyler Edwards added the PAT. Neither team would score again until the 5:00 mark of the third period, when Lebanon scored on a double reverse pass. Senior wideout Phillip Archer took a pitch and looked deep, firing a pass to Overstreet, who hauled in a 34-yard TD reception. Again Howerton’s PAT hit the upright and fell no good. The Bulldogs responded by going to the air and scoring on a 65-yard, nine-play drive that featured five Parker pass completions. Parker hit senior wideout Dalton Friend with a 13-yard pass, stretching the ball over the endzone for the TD, with :33 left in the third period. Edwards’ PAT cut the Jacket edge to 20-14. Rolla then forced Lebanon to its only 3-and-out series, and RHS got the ball back at its own 36 yardline with a chance to tie or take the lead. However, Rolla could not score either, punting the ball back to Lebanon after three plays. Rolla’s punter, Friend, boomed a 60-yard punt to pin the Jackets at their own six yardline. Lebanon went on a 94-yard, 14-play drive, scoring on a one-yard Brett Smith run. Another Rolla interception quickly led to another Lebanon score, as Tyler Bethel scored on a one-yard run to make it 33-14 with 2:39 left. In the final seconds the Bulldogs drove the field and ended up scoring on a 12-yard pass from Parker to Otte. The two-point conversion pass was picked off.
