For the second time this season, the two Floyd County varsity football teams hooked up in a wild and wacky offensive meeting. And for the second time in as many games, the outcome was the same.
When the two teams met on Oct. xx it took 61 points for the Floyd Central Highlanders to take control of the coveted Anchor trophy. Friday’s game didn’t have the same kind of offensive numbers, but it was close as FC edged New Albany 48-47.
The Highlanders are 9-2 as they prepare for their third consecutive home game in Class 4A sectional xx. FCHS will host Castle Friday. That game is a re-match of last year’s sectional title game that the Highlanders won 42-32.
Castle got to the title game by beating Jennings County 69-27.
FC’s road was far more competitive.
New Albany led for much of the first half as they scored three touchdowns giving them a 19-7 advantage.
The Highlanders only first quarter score came on a seven-yard run by Kyle Bramble. Brock Slavens took the ball on PAT.
FC cut New Albany’s lead to three just before half time when Bramble scored again, this time from three yards out. The PAT again was successful as Garrett Shanks threw a pass to Bramble.
Both teams managed to scored touchdowns and two-point conversions in the third quarter.
Dylan Jenney scored six for the Highlanders and Shanks threw a pass to Jordan Thompson putting them up 24-19.
That advantage was short-lived, however as the Bulldogs scored again.
The back-and-forth continued as FC scored on an 84-yard run by Slavens and again Shanks and Thompson connected on the PAT.
The Highlanders answered every New Albany run with one of their own.
Bramble scored on a 24-yard run and then added the two point conversion himself.
The game-clinching scored from FC came when Forest Ridge picked up a New Albany fumble and returned it for the touchdown.
The two teams combined for more than 800 yards of total offense, 385 of which was gained by the Highlanders.
Bramble led the way with 41 carries for 186 yards and Slavens finished with 125 yards on four carries.
Floyd Central’s Players of the Week were Cody Brewer (offensive line); Joey Quinkert (defensive line); Slavens (offensive and defensive backs) and Austin Wirth (special teams); Brett Zoll had the big hit and Slavens had the big play.
Friday’s meeting between Castle and FCHS will be just the second meeting in the past 15 years. The two teams are 1-1 in those meetings.
The winner of Friday’s game will take on the winner between Whiteland and Bloomington North in Sectional 7.
According to the Indianahighschoolfootball Web site, the game is slated to begin at 7 p.m., but fans planning to attend, should confirm kick-off with the school’s athletic office.
Admission to the game is $6.

Henryville, Silver Creek both fall in semi finals in volleyball semi states PDF Print E-mail

The Henryville Lady Hornets and the Silver Creek Lady Dragons both fell in the morning semi finals of their respective classes in the IHSAA semi states in volleyball Saturday.


Henryville won the first two games in its Class A first round match against Indianapolis Lutheran at North Daviess, and Indianapolis Lutheran won 20-25, 20-25, 25-20, 25-20, 15-10.


In the Class AAA semi final in the morning at Jasper, Evansville Memorial defeated Silver Creek 25-14, 19-25, 25-14, 25-21.




The Lady Hornets led 12-6 in the first game, and led 18-17 in the third game.


Things started to go downhill early for Henryville in the fourth game, when they found themselves down 20-13 early in the going.


Henryville led 2-1 at the start of the fifth and deciding game, but in the words of Henryville coach Shallon Willen, “Things kind of fell apart.”


Despite the loss, Willen enjoyed the atmosphere in the gym at North Daviess.


It was a tight match, it was an exciting match,” said Willen. “We just came up a little bit short. I don’t know if they were better, or smarter, or a little bit more experienced.”


Henryville has 11 players returning next year, and Willen hopes to see the program get back to w inning sectionals. This year is the first year that the team has won a sectional in volleyball since 1992.


On the other hand, Henryville is moving up to class AA next year, and Willen thinks that they will have to step up the effort.


We’ll be fine; we already play the AA schools locally,” Willen said.


For one thing, Willen said that they play Crothersville about four times in the regular season, and she added that they will have to drop them a few times, and add some bigger schools for the competitiveness factor.


I have high hopes, even though we’re taking it to the next level,” she added.


In the match, Brittany Pierce had 25 kills; Erika Robertson had 22 kills and 4 aces; and setter Allison Knox had 34 assists.


The Lady Hornets close out the season with a record of 30-7.


Silver Creek-


Silver Creek coach Jeff Zimmerman was impressed with the athletic skills of Memorial. He thought they might just be tall, with two players standing 6-3, and a pair standing 6-1.


They were very good,” admitted Zimmerman. “We weren’t expecting them to be as fundamentally sound as they were.”


They blocked very well; they kept the pressure on us.”


The height of Memorial gave Silver Creek problems, said Zimmerman.


It made it a little tough,” Zimmerman said. “They really forced our hitters to alter their shots a little. That’s something that’s caused some problems. We felt like we competed with them.”


In the match, Hayley Garr had 12 kills and 7 aces, and Kristyn Maymon had 10 kills and 4 aces.
