FC continues hot start, wins 52-42 over Jeff PDF Print E-mail

Kyle Bramble had another one of those nights for the Floyd Central Highlanders Friday night at Blair Field in Jeffersonville, as the Highlander senior amassed 380 yards himself, en route to scoring six touchdowns. Floyd Central ended up outscoring the Red Devils, and defeated Jeff 52-42 in a Hoosier Hills Conference game.
“Thank goodness he’s on our team, or we wouldn’t have won this game,” said a relieved Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing of Bramble, after the game.
It didn’t necessarily start out that way for the Highlanders, as the Red Devils drew first blood, when in the 1st quarter Austin Hines scrambled in for the first touchdown of the night, putting Jeff up 7-0 at the 10:26 mark.
The Highlanders then scored three times the remainder of the opening quarter, with a pair of touchdowns and a safety.
The safety got Floyd on board at the 7:25 mark, and Bramble added both TDs. First, he ran in from 48 yards out (7:09), but the 2 point conversion run failed. Then, he scored off of an 80 yard pass from team mate Bryce Smith (2:29) to finish out the period.
Bramble scored once again in the early going of the 2nd quarter (11:03), but the Red Devils answered with a TD of their own again, pulling to within 22-15 with 7:31 left.
In a game where a total of 94 points are scored between both teams, that would not be expected to be the last score of the first half, and it wasn’t.
Floyd Central scored at the 7:14 and the 3:40 marks with touchdowns, the first one being a touchdown off of a 73 yard run by Bramble, and the latter being off of a 46 yard pass from Bryce Smith to Gus Schoenbaechler.
Jeff scored again right before the half (:45), when the Red Devils’ quarterback Dalton Conway threw a 9 yard pass to Marcus Gray.
Floyd had one more scoring opportunity left in the first half, and they managed a 43 yard field goal from Jason Van Buren with no time left.
After each team intercepted at least one pass from the other team in the early stages of the second half, Jeff finally scored with 3:28 left in the 3rd to climb to within 12, at 39-27.
Bramble answered with another touchdown just before the end of the period (:11), and the Highlanders led 46-27.
Jeff managed to score once more with 4:08 left in the game, putting more pressure on the Highlanders, and getting to within 46-35. Floyd Central then scored their final touchdown with 59 seconds left in the contest, when Bramble ran one in from short yardage. The PAT failed, but floyd led 52-35 with less than a minute left.
Jeff answered one final time, when 11 seconds later they punched one into the end zone, along with the PAT.
“Neither team could stop the other,” said a relieved Glesing after the game. “Luckily, we were able to run the ball, and get a lead on them. They’ve (Jeff) got a lot of weapons. We might meet again in the playoffs.”
Glesing cited the problems his team had in covering the passing zones, not lining up properly on some defensive line ups, and trying to contain Jeff’s speed on the outside.
The Highlanders will have all week to prepare for their trip to play the Columbus East Olympians in a crucial Hoosier Hills Conference battle. The Olympians are seven time defending champions of the league. Floyd Central now stands at 5-0 overall, is ranked No 5 in the latest Class 5A poll, and are of course undefeated in the conference.
The Highlanders amassed a total of 566 yards in the game, to 500 for Jeff. Jeff out passed Floyd 389-160, while the Highlanders had the ground attack in hand 406-111.

 
2nd Annual Pal Wow draws large crowds PDF Print E-mail

The 2nd Annual Pal Wow Family Fun Festival was held Saturday at Buffalo Trace Park in Palmyra, and it was plain to see that it will be a continuing event for years to come, at least if the people working together to put it on have their say in the matter.
“My hope is it will sustain itself, and we’ll keep it going,” said Amy Birkla of Palmyra, one of the people who helped to put it on. She was busy driving a utility vehicle taking passengers to different parts of the festival, which was spread out over the park.
The booths were stretched out along the drive way from near the front gate to the bath house near the lake and swimming area. This was a change from last year, and Birkla said the idea was to make the various vendors and organizations and their tents more visible. They also were closer to the car show and the bands set up on a stage, near the park’s entrance, near the lake.
Birkla said she hopes that the festival will become a permanent fixture in Palmyra, and remain there for the residents of Palmyra and the surrounding area. “I think we’ve accomplished that,” she said hopefully. “We try to make it a pleasant day for everybody.”
Mike Lowhorn, a Palmyra resident who has been organizing the car show, said that the car show Saturday had one big difference between it and other car shows held in the area. That was that there was no limit to how old or new the car could be. Trophies lined a table set up near the organizer’s tent, and were sponsored by local businesses. A goody bag was given to every entrant in the show.
“The turnout’s real good,” said Lowhorn during a brief break. “We have 100 entries registered, and 25 in the show not registered to be judged. It is up from last year.”
With several other car shows in the area Saturday, Lowhorn knew they wouldn’t break any records, wither.
“I didn’t expect a record-setting day. To me, this is plenty. (And), this is two years in a row we’ve had decent weather (for it).”
New Albany resident Tony Jacobi said he has been going to various shows with his 1988 Pontiac Fiero for some time. He relaxed in a lawn chair while people looked around his car and all of the others.
The car show drew a large variety of onlookers, too, from older people to youngsters just old enough to have toy cars.
One onlooker was Palmyra resident Nancy Hefley, of Palmyra, who had her mixed breed dog “Bonnie” with her.
Hefley said she was impressed with the Pal Wow this year, in general.
“It’s a lot bigger this year, than last year,” she said. “They keep adding to it; it’s great. You see people you haven’t seen in a while. And, you can’t beat our (Buffalo Trace) Park.
Several bands played throughout the day from Christian rock band Defining Ezra to a local community choir made up of local church members, to the Marlins, who played on the main stage near the lake and car show in the afternoon, after 6 pm.”
