Archbold 7th Grade Football

The Archbold seventh grade football team traveled to Montpelier, Thursday, Sept. 20, and returned home a 28-6 winner.

Archbold won the toss and began on the 35-yard line. Dylan Lantz moved from his running back position and lined up at quarterback. He took the shot gun snap from Zach Zimmerman and ran untouched for a 65-yard first-play touchdown. Lantz added the 2-point conversion on the famous “snow plow” for a 8-0 lead.

Lantz scored on another run later in the quarter to increase the Streak lead to 16-0. The offensive line of Zimmerman, Levi Gerig, Josiah McQuillin, Adam Steider, and Tyson Lersch did a fine job of run and pass blocking.

Montpelier’s offense was shut down the first half. Tyson Lersch ended one Loco drive by recovering a fumble. The other drives were stopped by a nice team effort provided by Josh Coffey, Darin Sauder, Stuart Wyse, Gavin Certeza, and Josiah McQuillin.

The Streaks also scored two TDs in the second half. On a fourth down play, quarterback Tyson Dietrich hit Bryce Tinsman on a stop route, and Tinsman made a fine move on his defender to go in from 12 yards out. The 2 points were unsuccessful and the Streaks led 22-0.

The last score came late in the fourth quarter. Taylor Price moved the Streaks downfield by way of the run and pass. The drive concluded on a Price to Ben Eggers 17-yard TD pass, making the final 28-6.

This evens Archbold’s record at 1-1 after an 18-6 loss last week at Napoleon. The Streaks travel to Bryan, Saturday, Sept. 29. Kickoff is 6 p.m.

Archbold 8th Grade Volleyball

The Archbold eighth grade volleyball team defeated Napoleon 25-15, 25-16, Tuesday, Sept. 18. “The girls came out and played a structurally sound game,” said Dina Gladieux, coach.

“I was very pleased with Laura Short. We have been working hard at practice on moving our feet to get into position, and she did a nice job of that. Morgan Cody had a good attacking game.”

The Streaks beat Montpelier 14-25, 25-14, 25-18, Thursday, Sept. 20 to improve to 5-2. “Game one was a prime example of how poor serving does not win games,” said Gladieux. “Serving came around in games two and three, along with our attacking game. Tori Williams and Cody did a nice job at that.

“Mylee McQuillin stepped up and served four points, and as her confidence continued to build she began attacking the ball.”
