Warriors fall to Red Bud in conference opener
WESCLIN'S MITCHELL KOLLMANN tries the line against Red Bud Saturday night.
Wesclin's winning streak ended at one this past weekend when the Warriors fell 36-28 to homestanding Red Bud in a game played over two nights.
Lightning halted the game Friday night with Wesclin leading 14-12 near the end of the first quarter. The contest resumed on Saturday night and the Warriors picked up where they left off, stretching the lead to 28-20 heading into halftime. But Wesclin wouldn't score for the entire second half, while Red Bud pushed across two fourth quarter touchdowns to gain the win.
Hayden Rapien plunged across from one yard out for Wesclin's first score, and Justin Goff went in from the ten-yard line later in the first quarter. Ryan Mugele had a 13-yard scoring run in the second, and Rapien scored again on a one-yard sneak.
Wesclin coughed up the ball three times in the game.
The Warriors now prepare for their home opener this Friday against Nashville, the first time the two schools have played on the gridiron.
Soccer Warriors drop three on week
DANNY WIGGINS sends one upfield last week against Mater Dei.
Wesclin's soccer team took three losses during the past week as the Warriors continue to work their way through a difficult early schedule.
Wesclin pushed Mater Dei to overtime last Thursday before falling 2-1, just days after the Knights blanked them 6-0 in the Metro Cup tournament. Josh Brown scored Wesclin's lone goal, assisted by Ken Hagarty.
"Obviously that was a huge improvement from the previous time we played them," said Wesclin coach Terry Calvert. "We made some adjustments and we just played harder from the beginning. We actually outshot them, but we missed some opportunities and they got the goal when they needed it."
Wesclin lost a home contest, 5-0 to Anna Jonesboro on Saturday, and traveled to Columbia for a 7-0 whitewash Monday at the hands of the Eagles.
CCBL series knotted
Bartelso edged Centralia 3-2 Sunday to extend one off the more competitive playoff seasons in recent Clinton County Baseball League (CCBL) memory. Bartelso's win tied the championship series at one game each and sets up the rubber game this coming Sunday at Bartelso.
Team and league MVP's were announced prior to Sunday's game two of the league championship series. Paul Ritzheimer was named Trenton's most valuable player, and Mike Pagano was the team's most valuable pitcher. Kory Peppenhorst of Bartelso was named the league MVP, and Beckemeyer's Tony Schaefer was the league's most valuable pitcher.
Ben Maue of Trenton is a senior on Mater Dei's 2014 football team, and picked up a sack and two tackles in the Knight's 22-14 win over Immaculate Conception of Elmhurst Friday night.
Wesclin's volleyball team beat Steeleville to capture fifth place in the Marissa Tournament. The Warriors played seven matches overall in the tournament, winning five against two losses. Wesclin's Mary Hagarty and Aspen Lohman were named to the all-tournament team.
Nate Brede faced the minimum 21 batters in twirling a no-hitter last Thursday against Breese District 12 in middle school baseball action. Brede walked one Breese batter, who was erased on a double play when Wesclin's Brandon Durgin snagged a fly ball and fired to his twin brother Parker at first for the twin killing.
Brede had two hits and a pair of runs batted in, while Brandon Durgin also knocked in two in Wesclin's 6-0 victory. Parker Durgin, Alonzo Nunez, Joe Abt, Ben Herndon, Nick Holtgrave, and Brandt Goings all had hits for Wesclin.
Wesclin's middle school softball team split a pair of games during the past week, losing to Carlyle 7-3 before blanking Breese District 12 11-0. Courtney Lercher drove in all three Wesclin runs on two hits in the Carlyle loss, and Gracie Reymond had a hit.
Reymond went three-for-four with an rbi in support of mound winner Karaghan Daiber against Breese. Lercher drove in two runs, Makenna Daiber doubled and tripled, and Taylor Poage had two hits for Wesclin, now 3-5 on the season.
