Written by: on Sunday, September 12th, 2021


My six-game trip took me to Arcanum, Ohio, to Delta, Indiana, then to Muncie, Indiana, and now that I am home it is time to do my articles on some of the games and to post all of the pics. For those who like to take in games in at new places, Arcanum is one that I suggest very strongly.

Arcanum found themselves facing a fourth and four midway through a high contested opening quarter when Bryce Schondelmyer calmly dropped back and threw a nice little pass to Ian Baker, who took off for a gain of twenty yards. Schondelmyer would cap off the drive with another pass this one to Brennen Troutwinefor a twenty-six-yard touchdown. Schondelmyer made this an 8-0 game, with a two-point conversion run.

The Tigers took advantage of a short field to strike quickly with a twenty-yard touchdown run from Peyton Beam. The point-after kick by Connor Schmit would make this an 8-7 game, with 5:21 remaining in the quarter. The Trojans defense would make the last big play of the quarter, with Jacob Rayburn stopping Beam for no gain on a nice tackle.

Exzaviar Moody would sack Schondelmyer for a loss of five midway through the 2nd quarter as defense continued to be the theme of this game. Schondelmyer would be sack again this time by Keegen Weiss when the Trojans were going for it on fourth and fifteen.

The Tigers offense feeding off the nice play from its defense would get a thirty-seven-yard catch from Ian Schmitmeyer that gave the Tigers a first and goal from the ten. Beam closed out the drive with a four-yard run with the point after kick the Tigers had a 14-8 lead, with 3:18 left in the half.

The Trojans would need just two plays to find pay dirt with Tyler Huber making a nice grab the keeping his balance after a bump he raced to the end zone on a play that totaled sixty-nine yards to make this a 14-14 game.

Beam would be stopped for a loss of four when Devin Craport and Eli Shelton got to the talented runner. From there the Tigers offense really could not get anything going and soon found their defense back on the field. Schondelmyer who at times looked more than a little flustered would find his enter calmness and throw another strike to Zade Shank, who after making the catch took a hit kept his feet to score on a 40-yard play. Schondelmyer would convert another two-point conversion run to make this a 22-14 game, with 0;16 seconds left in the half.

On the ensuing kickoff Beam caused the entire crowd to leave their seats when he busted free and raced down the left side only to step out of bounds inside the ten-yard-line of the Trojans. Had he stayed inbounds he scores and this might have been a different game.

Defense ruled the nest during the third quarter with both teams having one play each that stood out to me, First, for the Trojans on fourth and one Schondelmyer picked up the first down. For the Tigers a sack of Schondelmyer by Keegen Weiss and Moody.

The Trojans used a thirty-nine-yard pass play from Schondelmyer to Garrett Garno to set up the last touchdown off the game and that came on a one-yard plunge by Schondelmyer. Schondelmyer then found Baker for another two-point conversion to give us our final score of 30-14.

The Trojans defense made the last big statement of the game when Jacob Rayburn sacked Ian Schmitmeyer.
