Archbold 7th Grade Football

After shutting out Swanton 16- 0, Thursday, Sept. 20, the Streaks remained unbeaten as they topped a very good Montpelier team 22-6, Thursday, Sept. 27.

With a record of 4-0, the Blue Streaks scored first as Bryce Williams connected with Nick Rodriguez from 12 yards out for a 6-0 halftime advantage.

Williams sneaked the ball in from 1 yard out for Archbold’s second score. The two-point conversion was successful as Williams pitched the ball to Sam Petersen to widen the lead to 14-0.

Archbold’s next score came as Petersen ran around left end on a jet sweep from 8 yards out. Good blocking came from Brandon Miller, Ben Zimmerman, Logan Roth, Cash Gericke, Brian Ball, and Anthony Gonzalez. The two-point conversion was successful again as Petersen ran in a pitch from Williams for the 22-6 final.

Defensively, Zimmerman and Nebel Welch recovered fumbles. Gericke, Ball, and Roth recorded quarterback sacks.

The Streaks improved to 5-0 with a 42-28 victory at Delta, Thursday, Oct. 4. Archbold scored its first of four first-quarter touchdowns on the third play of the game. Williams faked the jet sweep and kept it himself for a 54-yard TD run. Williams hit S. Petersen for the 2-point conversion pass and an 8-0 lead.

Delta fumbled on its first play and Roth recovered for the Blue and Gold. Williams received great protection from Gonzalez, Ball, Miller, and Roth, which enabled him to find Ryan Trevino on a post move and a 45-yard TD reception for a 14-0 lead.

The Panthers again fumbled on the first play and Shane Bechtel recovered. After a couple of running plays, Williams found tight end Gericke alone over the middle for a 49-yard catch and run. Before Delta gained even 1 yard, the Streaks led 20-0.

Delta managed to move the chains for a couple of first downs on its third series of the first quarter. However, they again put the ball on the ground, and it was scooped up by Petersen. A few plays later Petersen took the option pitch and crossed the goal line, then added the 2-point conversion on the same play for a 28-0 cushion.

Delta cut the lead to 28-14 with around 2:30 before halftime. The Streaks moved downfield and took their final time-out with the ball on Delta’s 1-yard line. Williams called his favorite play, the option, and this time chose to keep it, scoring with 0:00 on the clock for a 34-14 lead.

The Panthers had the ball to start the second half. Their tailback burst through the Archbold defense for a long touchdown run, cutting the lead to 34-20. The defenses made stops on the next few possessions, and the score remained 34-20 entering the final period.

Archbold put the game away on a fourth-and-one. Williams tried to get the first down by way of the quarterback sneak, but broke the first tackle and ran down the middle of the field for a 38-yard touchdown to make it 42-20. Delta added one more TD for the 42-28 final.

Archbold’s defense had solid contributions from Connor Hagans, Gericke, Rodriguez, Welch, and Kaiden Bedsole (fumble recovery).

Pettisville Soccer

The Birds traveled to Lenawee Christian for their ninth match of the season, Monday, Oct. 1. Although Pettisville was down 1-0 at halftime, it could have easily been 2-0, but goalie Nate Hartzler saved a penalty kick midway through the first period.

Less then five minutes into the second half, Garrett Young brought the ball up the left side and place a nice pass to Landon Roth, whose low shot found the back of the net under a diving keeper. Lenawee converted its second penalty kick attempt of the night and the Birds were unable to score the equalizer, suffering a 2-1 defeat.

The Birds were defeated 2-0 by Emmanuel Christian, Thursday, Oct. 4. They had split the previous two meetings. James Eicher did a fine job of containing their main scorer; however, the Birds (4-4-2) weren’t able to capitalize on several good scoring opportunities.
