It was a whuppin'.

 

Things like this can sometimes bring the world into focus for a team and in the long run be a good thing. Other times it's just an butt whuppin'. We'll see.

Caldwell loses Sindelar to graduation and doesn't miss a beat. The Burns kid has the makings of a good HS QB. FS couldn't stop the passing game. On offense FS had a few good long runs but it wasn't enough. Game turned on a disastrous 3-minute stretch at the end of the 2nd. and beginning of the 3rd quarter when Caldwell scored 3 straight touchdowns. Trailing 12-7, FS had sacked Burns on fourth down but a face mask penalty gave the Tigers a first down which led to a score and a 20-7 halftime lead. Caldwell scored in 57 seconds to start the third quarter, then FS fumbled the ball which was returned inside the 5 and Caldwell scored again. FS had 2 TD's called back on penalties and had a 50 yard run negated by a holding call on the other side of the field. Caldwell had several penalties too but they were able to overcome theirs. Caldwell defense is not getting much attention but they should. FS had trouble running inside on them. After several turnovers last week against Christian Co., Caldwell had none against FS, while FS had 2. Very sloppy game by FS but Caldwell is the real deal. Isaiah Hall was the standout for FS as he had TD runs of 47 and 75 yards. One positive for FS is that I think they had a few starters out on defense for various reasons, so maybe they can rebound from this.

I figured it was just a matter of time before Caldwell would get some respect. Don't think many people thought they'd sustain the level they've played at the past 4 years with Sindelar, but, they've built a solid program that's bigger than just one player. They always have solid middle school, freshman and JV teams, so, their feeder programs are strong and they should continue being a factor on an annual basis.

Caldwell looked like a different team than last week.

 

FS just made a mess of things. Penalties, botched handoffs, little league tackling, and whiffs on blocking assignments. Bottom line, it seemed like a lack of focus and mental readiness to face a talented opponent. We will see if they learn a lesson.

FS is playing very young on both sides of the ball right now. At one time last night they had 4 sophomores and a freshman in on defense. The lost of Uhls will sting for a while and they should have Doss back next week. Brady continues to impress and run very well for FS as he had two long runs called back and one of the was a 75 yard TD. He also is just a sophomore with a lot of ceiling. Hall is a great back with a lot of speed and determination. This team will continue to grow up and when they do it could mean trouble for the rest of us.

Let's give credit where credit is due, Caldwell Co. is excellent coached and plays very well as a team. They were the better team in every area last night.

South Warren is the perfect example of what happens when a team grows up and together.

I was unaware of the missing pieces to the defense last night. Late getting to the game due to getting rear ended by a drinking driver.

This (FS) definitely seemed to be a distracted team. We have a three game lead up to the SW game. If the same Wildcats show up in Richpond that showed up last night at Shadetree Stadium it will get U G L Y.
