Archbold 8th Grade Football

The Streaks traveled to Bryan to open the season, Thursday, Aug. 30.

Having 15 players willing to work hard, the “Fightin’ 15” were ready to begin the season but came home on the short end, 24-0.

Archbold moved the ball on its first possession, but had to punt. The Bears moved the ball to midfield, but pressure from Austin Wilson forced a quick pass and Bryce Huber came up with an interception.

The Streaks couldn’t move against the much-larger Bryan team and punted again.

Bryan moved inside the 20-yard line, but the Streaks stopped them, and again it was Huber with an interception.

Midway through the second quarter with the score still tied at 0, Bryan threw to its tall receiver, who won the jump ball and took it into the end zone for a touchdown. The point-after-touchdown attempt failed and Bryan led 6-0.

Again unable to move the ball, Archbold punted late in the first half. Bryan used its size to throw another touchdown pass. The twopoint conversion was good for a 14-0 lead at halftime.

Archbold’s defense remained strong and kept the team close, but Bryan scored a fourth quarter TD to go up 22-0. Late in the game, Archbold stopped two of the Bears’ drives as Elijah Alvarado came up with the third interception of the game, and Toby Walker caused and recovered a fumble.

As the game was coming to a close, the Streaks did not execute a punt and took a safety for the 24-0 final.

Archbold 8th Grade Volleyball

Archbold defeated Tinora 25-17, 25-13, in its season opener, Monday, Aug. 27.

“I was pleased with the season starter performance,” said Dina Gladieux, coach. “The girls were able to run the offense well. Alyssa Ziegler did a nice job setting her teammates up for the kill.

“Delanie Driver and Peyton Dickman had two kills each, while Sydney Baynes, Jillian Schweitzer and Morgan Miller each had one. Schweitzer and Savannah Short had a double block kill, which was a highlight because we haven’t really worked on blocking that much yet this season.”

Archbold defeated Fairview 25-11, 25-12, Thursday, Aug. 30.

“Baynes and Dickman each had two ace serves and did an overall nice job serving,” said Gladieux. “Schweitzer and Alyssa Ziegler did a nice job setting.”

Top hitters were Ziegler, Baynes, Malinda Lugbill, Driver, Itzy Gaona and Dickman.”
