CHAD: IT’S A GORGEOUS NICE FOR — NIGHT FOR FOOTBALL IN AUSTINTOWN. FALCONS 21, IRISH SEVEN. WE ARE ALL SET FOR THE SECOND HALF. BROOKE, WHAT YOU HAVE FOR US? BROOKE: THE HEAD COACH TOLD ME PRIOR TO THE GAME, THE OFFENSIVE LINE IS GOING TO BE THE MAIN FOCUS IN ORDER TO COMPETE WITH FITCH. THAT HASN’T CHANGED IN THE SECOND HALF. THEY NEED TO BE MORE EFFICIENT, HE SAID. THEY NEED TO PROTECT UPFRONT AND GIVE THE QUARTERBACK MORE TIME TO THROW THE BALL. CHAD: THANK YOU. VERY NEARLY A TURNOVER FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH. FALCONS HAVE IT, FIRST DOWN AND STEP — 10. HERE’S A LOOK. TODD SIMONS FELL RIGHT ON IT. FITCH HOLDING ONTO THAT FOOTBALL. FIRST DOWN AND 10 FALCONS A THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. THE 25 YARD LINE. WE WILL SEE THIS TIME WHO COMES OUT TO PLAY QUARTERBACK FOR FITCH. IT APPEARS TO BE NATE LES QUEBEC. TO HIS RIGHT, CJ WOODBERRY. THEY WILL BRING LONG EMOTION. LES QUEBEC — LESKOVAC TAKES THE SNAP. ERROL’S AHEAD. UP NEAR THE 28 YARD LINE. PICK UP OF TWO OR THREE ON THE PLAY. AGAIN, TO TOUCHDOWN EDGE. NOT REALLY A GREAT SENSE OF URGENCY TO CHANGE THINGS UP. YOU JUST WANT TO SUSTAIN DRIVES. THAT’S WITH THE NAME OF THE GAME IS HERE NOW. BRIAN: ESPECIALLY WITH 21-7 LEAD. YOU WANT TO SUSTAIN DRIS AND START TO TAKE TIME OFF OF THE CLOCK. CHAD: FALCONS WILL KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. PENALTY FLAG. A SECOND ONE COMES FLYING IN FROM THE BACKSIDE. IT MAY BE COMING BACK. PROBABLY IS. THERE WERE TWO PENALTY MARKER’S ON THE FIELD. THEY WILL SORTED OUT AND FIGURE IT OUT. THE HOLD IS TAGGED TO TYREE LONG. THAT WILL BRING UP A SECOND DOWN. THEY MARCH OFF THE YARDAGE AND SPOT THE FOOTBALL BACK. AT THE 20.

YOU HAVE TO CAPITALIZE. CHAD: WE SAW THE IRISH TURN IT OVER ON THE INTERCEPTION. NOW, FITCH COPS IT UP. ITS FIRST DOWN. THEY SPOT THE BALL AT THE 22 YARD LINE. A LOT OF SHUFFLING. NOW FOR WIDE RECEIVERS, FIRESIDE TO THE LEFT. ONE NEAR SIDE TO THE RIGHT. MATTHEW REARDON IS IN AT QUARTERBACK. HE TAKES THE SNAP. HE FIXED THE HANDOFF. CUT DOWN AT THE 18 YARD LINE. THE ARE SLIM IRISH — THE URSULINE IRISH NOW REACH THE RED ZONE. BRIAN: INTERESTING TAKE BY THE URSULINE OFFENSE. IT IS THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE SEEN HIM LINEUP EQUITABLE. THIS IS THE FIRST DRIVE OF THE SECOND HALF. CHAD: HE WILL KEEP IT HIMSELF. PUSHING FORWARD. INSIDE THE 15. HE IS WRESTLED DOWN JUST INSIDE THE 15 YARD LINE. IT’LL BE THIRD DOWN AND SHORT UPCOMING. A VERY QUICK, ATHLETIC STYLE OF QUARTERBK. NOT AS MUCH OF A POCKET PASSER. HE HAS A GREAT ARM AS WELL. WE WILL SEE IF HE PUTS IT IN THE AIR. HE STUTTER STEPS. HE’S DROPPED AT THE 21-YARD LINE. GUESS WHO? WRITE PLAYS AND RIGHT TIME TO MAKE THE TACKL THAT IS THE YOUNG MAN, NATE LESKOVAC WHO COUGHED IT UP TO GIVE URSULINE GOOD FIELD POSITION. LESKOVAC COMES UP WITH A TACKLE WITH 9:28 TO PLAY.

A PENALTY FLAG CAME AT THE LATTER PORTION OF THAT PLAY. AT LEAST, I BELIEVE IT’S COMING BACK. WE’LL SEE. BLOCKING THE BACK, PERHAPS. BLOCKING THE BACK. WHITE. 10 YARDS. FIRST DOWN. CHAD: NICE-LOOKING GAME ON FIRST DOWN AWAY. TALKED ABOUT IT THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF THE SEASON. YOU START OFF THE DRIVE WAS A COSTLY PENALTY. NOW YOU ARE BACKED UP VERY DEEP. PTHEY SPOT THE BALL ALL THE WAY BACK AT THE 39 YARD LINE. BRADY SHANNON IS BACK IN THERE FOR URSULINE. HE WANTS TO THROW. THE CATCH AT THE 50. HE’S ABSOLUTELY THRILLED. — DRILLED BY ISAAC BESSEL. THERE’S A PENALTY MARKER THAT CAME FROM THE FAR SIDE. YOU ALMOST WONDER IF THAT WAS HELMET TO HELMET CONTACT. BRIAN: YOU WILL DEFINITELY SEE A PENALTY HERE. IT HAS TO DO WITH PLAYER SAFETY HERE. DEFINITELY. THAT’S AN INITIATIVE ACROSS FOOTBALL, ACROSS THE STATE OF OHIO. ONCE HE DELIVERS THAT BLOW TO THE HEAD, YOU WILL SEE A FLAG COME OUT. , TO HELMET. DEFENSE. PERSONAL FOUL. 15 YARDS. FIRST DOWN. CHAD: VERY GOOD. THOSE ARE THE KINDS OF PLAYS THEY ARE TRYING TO GET RID OF AND FOOTBALL. IT CAN REALLY HURT SOMEONE. AND YOURSELF, FOR THAT MATTER. BRIAN: AOLUTELY.

PUMPING AND ROLLING TO THE NEAR SIDE. POLISHING HIM OFF FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH. JOE PEREZ. ALSO THERE TO MAKE THE STOP, A JAYBIRD. BRIAN: GREAT PRESSURE HERE.

HONORS THE TOP HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL LINEMAN IN THE VALLEY. SPONSORED BY THE MORAN SKI COMPANY. IT’S A DELIGHTFUL NIGHT. HOME OPENER FOR FITCH. THIS HAS BEEN A REALLY ONE-SIDED SERIES OVER THE YEARS. URSULINE HAS WON FOUR OF THE LAST FIVE MEETINGS. AND 11 OF THE PAST 12 SINCE BACK IN 1993. BRIAN: THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THEY HAVE BEEN ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD AGAINST ONE ANOTHER SINCE 2007. CHAD: FALCONS WILL GO TO THE AIR. SIMONS MAKES THE CATCH. FIRST DOWN AHEAD OF THE 35 YARD LINE. SIMONS IS SUCH A WEAPON AT THA WIDE RECEIVER SPOT. BRIAN: GREAT PRESENCE HERE AT QUARTERBACK. SIMONS HAS BEEN GREAT. SECURES THE BALL. GREAT JOB. CHAD: FALCONS HAVE IT FIRST DOWN AND 10. THEY WILL KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. IT’S AHEAD OF THE 39 YARD LINE. TYREE MITCHELL. AGAIN, NO NEED TO GET THAT UP-TEMPO STYLE HER DEVONSHIRE WOULD HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS AT ARTERBACK TONIGHT. HE WILL LINE UP WITH MITCHELL TO HIS LEFT AGAIN. PHILLIPS. HERE COMES THE PENALTY FLAG. HERE’S THE CALL. ENCROACHMENT, DEFENSE, NUMBER 3, 5 YARD PENALTY. SECOND DOWN. CHAD: THAT WILL HELP THE FITCH CAUSE AND SET UP A SECOND DOWN AND ONE PLAY FROM THE 44. SURE WHAT — SHERWOOD WITH MITCHELL TO HIS LEFT. MITCHELL TAKES A HANDOFF. HE HAS THE FIRST DOWN. HE’S PUSHED BACKWARDS. STILL FIGHTING TO MAKE SURE HE WILL MOVE THE CHAINS. HE’S ACROSS THE 45. THEY WILL MARK HIM DOWN AT THE 47 YARD LINE. FIRST AND 10 FITCH. BRIAN: IT’S A HARD RUN. LOOKS LIKE HE GOT FIVE YARDS AND AND WAS MET BY FOUR DEFENDERS. THEY PUSHED HIM BACK. CHAD: FROM THE FISH 47. FALCONS WILL GO ONCE AGAIN. DANTE WALKER. WE ARE INSIDE OF TWO MINUTES LEFT IN THIS THIRD QUARTER. FAST-MOVING QUARTER NUMBER THREE. DEVON SHERWOOD. LOOKING TO CROSS NOW, ALLOWING SOME EXTRA TIME TO WIND ON DOWN. SURE WHAT AGAIN UP THE MIDDLE. MITCHELL LASTED DOWN AT THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. IT’S BEEN A STEADY DIET OF MITCHELL. TRYING TO GET A GOOD LOOK AT MITCHELL HERE. SEE WHAT HE CAN DO. THE OLD TIVO DOWNFIELD. INCOMPLETE. THAT WAS INTENDED FOR CHRIS SCOTT. IT’S INCOMPLETE. BOY, THAT ARM FOR DEVON SHOULD — GOOD ARM FOR DEVON SHERWOOD. NOW IT WILL BE FORCED DOWN. LET’S GET BACK — LESKOVAC IS BACK IN THERE. BRIAN: NOT WHAT COACH ELLIOTT WANTS TO SEE. LESKOVAC, LOW SNAP.

IT WAS DEFLECTED. I THINK THE YOUNG MAN WAS CAMPBELL. BRIAN: THAT WAS A GREAT JOB. THEY PUT SO MUCH EMPHASIS ON THEIR SPECIAL TEAMS. IN ORDER FOR US TO WIN GAMES, WE MUST WIN THE THIRD PHASE. THAT IS SPECIAL TEAMS. YOU COULD TELL. THEY HAVE AN ARGUMENT — INORDINATE AMOUNT OF TIME. THE DO A GREAT JOB. THE COACH HEADS THAT UP. IT SHOWS ON GAME NIGHT. CHAD: FIRST DOWN AND 10. THAT’S TRENTON HILL. GETTING A CARRY. BRIAN: THAT’S THE ONE THING THAT COULD HELP THIS OFFENSIVE LINE. A RUN GAME. THEY CAN HELP BRADY SHANNON AS WELL. CHAD: IRISH KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. TRENTON HILL FALLS FORWARD. I DO BELIEVE HE HAS A FIRST DOWN. 24 SECONDS LEFT IN THE THIRDTH QUARTER AS SOME OF THOSE CRAMPS ARE STARTING TO PILE UP. CAN’T EXACTLY MAKE OUT THE NUMBER OF THE INJURED FITCH FALCON. LET’S TAKE A LOOK IF YOU ARE JUST TUNING IN HOW WE GOT TO THIS POINT. FALCONS GOT ON THE BOARD EARLY ON IN THIS ONE ON A TOUCHDOWN RUN BY DEVIN SHERWOOD. NATE LESKOVAC GETTING INVOLVED. A 15 YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN. THAT INCREASED THE FITCH LEAD TO 14-0. THE IRISH HAD SOMETHING GOING. MATTHEW REARDON WITH A TOUCHDOWN PASS. HE GOT ACROSS FROM BRADY SHANNON. A PRETTY LOOKING PITCH AND DEVIN SHERWOOD TO TODD SIMONS IN THE SECOND QUARTER. IT IS 21-7, FITCH LEADING URSULINE WITH INSIDE I MINUTES OF PLAY. — A MINUTE TO PLAY. 24 SECONDS. PUT SOME EXTRA TIME ON THERE, IT SAYS 35.

GREAT PRESSURE THERE. CHRISTIAN ARMSTRONG, AMONG OTHERS. JOE PEREZ ALSO WITH A GOOD PUSH FROM THAT BIG DEFENSIVE FRONT. ARMSTRONG OFF THE EDGE. AGAIN, POLISHING THINGS OFF WAS TYREE MITCHELL. THAT WILL DO IT FOR US IN THE THIRD QUARTER. 12 MINUTES LEFT TO PLAY HERE AT FALCON STADIUM. THE END OF THE FOURTH QUARTER WITH YOUR SCORE, AUSTINTOWN FITCH 21, URSULINE 7. THE FOURTH QUARTER IS NEXT ♪ Did you guys know that with Dunkin’ Sip Peel Win game you can win prizes online like free gas for a year? What’s that? You can win free gas for a year!

THAT IS GOING TO HELP THE CAUSE. IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN JOE PEREZ, WEARING NUMBER 32. THE NOSEGUARD POSITION. REFEREE: ENCROACHMENT, DEFENSE. FIVE YARDS, SECOND OUT. — DOWN. BRIAN: YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE BALL. IT MAKES YOU PULL YOUR HAIR OUT AS A COACH. CHAD: THAT YOUNG MAN IS A TERROR FOR QUARTERBACKS. HE GOT A LITTLE TOO ANTSY IN THAT PLAY. BRADY SHANNON IS DROPPED! RISTIAN ARMSTRONG MAKING HIS PRESENCE FELT AND ARMSTRONG IS THERE FOR THE BIG-TIME SACK. BRIAN: BRADY SHANNON WILL HAVE A TOUGH TIME GETTING OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING IF HE CONTINUES TO TAKE THESE KIND OF HITS. CHAD: THAT IS A TEXTBOOK SACK. YOU GET A LOOK AT CHRISTIAN ARMSTRONG. HE IS A FORCE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. BRIAN: TALKING ABOUT 301 POUNDS COMING AT YOU AT FULL SPEED. NOT SOMETHING I WOULD WANT TO COME IN CONTACT WITH. CHAD: BRADY SHANNON HEAVES IT DOWNFIELD AND IT IS TIPPED AND INTERCEPTED. PICKED OFF BY CHRIS SCOTT. HE’S GOT A CONVOY OF BLOCKERS. STOPPED, CUT DOWN. PENALTY FLAGS ALL OVER THE PLACE. FITCH FALCONS DOWN ALL OVER THE PLACE. CLAMPING UP. SCOTT COMES UP WITH THE PICK. THE RETURN IS GOING TO BE FAR WORSE. THAT PASS WAS INTENDED FOR URSULINE’S ZACH SIMON. AGAIN, RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME. CHRIS SCOTT GETTING IT DONE. BRIAN: LIKE YOU SAID, RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME. GREAT TIP FROM HIS BUDDY THERE. THAT IS A TIP DRILL THEY DO EVERY DAY IN PRACTICE, I AM SURE OF. USUALLY ON A BIG RETURN LIKE THAT AS YOU CAN SEE IN MOST GAMES, THERE IS USUALLY LAUNDRY ALL OVER THE PLACE LIKE THERE WAS ON THAT ONE. CHAD: WE HAVE NOT ONE, BUT TWO INJURED FITCH FALCONS. LET’S SEE WHO TIPPED IT. KYREE LONG. BRIAN: GREAT TIP. USUALLY YOU WANT TO TIP IT UP BUT HE TIPPED IT RIGHT TO HIS BUDDY. CHAD: COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN MORE PERFECT THAN THAT. BRIAN: NOT SURE IF HE PLANNED IT LIKE THAT BUT THAT IS HOW IT PLAYED OUT SO GOOD FOR THE FITCH FALCONS. NOT SO GOOD FOR THE URSULINE IRISH. REFEREE: DURING THE RETURN, BLIND SIDE BLOCK NUMBER 25, BLUE. 15 YARDS, FIRST DOWN. CHAD: BLIND SIDE BLOCK. 15 YARD PENALTY WHEN WE DO GET BACK TO IT. MAKE SURE YOU WATCH FOR THE RUN OF THE WEEK.

WINTERBURN IS ONE PLAYER DOWN. THE OTHER YOUNG MEN, KYREE LONG WHO TIPPED THE BALL TO THE INTERCEPTOR, CHRIS SCOTT. SLOW TO WALK OFF AS WELL. THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE IS GOING TO BE THE 20 YARD LINE. AGAIN, THAT IS A COSTLY TURNOVER NOW, ESPECIAL GIVEN THE WAY FITCH HAS BEEN ABLE TO POSSESS THE BALL FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. BRIAN: THE CO-COORDINATORS ON THE URSULINE IRISH DEFENSE HAVE DONE A NICE JOB ADAPTING TO THIS OFFENSE. FITCH HAS NOT DONE MUCH SINCE THEY PUT UP THE 21 POINTS SO WE WILL SEE WHAT THEY DO HERE. CHAD: LESKOVAC TRY TO ABOUT THAT TO THE OUTSIDE. 25, 30. HE IS PLANTED, BUT NOT BEFORE HE GETS THE FIRST DOWN TO THE 31-YARD LINE. LOOKS LIKE DEMARCUS MCELROY WAS THERE AT THE TAIL END BUT HE CONTINUES TO PICK UP BIG CHUNKS OF YARDAGE. FIRST AND 10, FALCONS. OVER ONE MINUTE INTO THIS FOURTH QUARTER. FALCONS DRAW PLAY AND IT GOES NOWHERE. BRIAN: THIS DEFENSIVE LINE IS INSPIRED RIGHT NOW. GIVE ALL THE CREDITS TO THAT COACHING STAFF. THEY HAVE NOT STOP PLAYING ONE OUT RIGHT NOW.

ON THE RECEIVING END WAS JADEN MURRAY, THERE TO MAKE THE TACKLE FOR URSULINE IS MATT PHILLIPS. CHAD: A HECK OF A PLAY CALL. BRIAN: YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE TRYING TO ROLL OUT BACKSIDE AND THE LEFT TACKLE MISSES H GUIDE. YOU CAN SEE THE TOP OF THE SCREEN. THERE IS NOBODY OUT THERE IF YOU GET THAT BLOCK AND HE IS OFF TO THE RACES. CHAD: FOURTH DOWN AND SIX FOR THE AUSTINTOWN FITCH FALCONS. SINGLE SAFETY RETURN MAN, BACK DEEP FOR URSULINE. IT IS JULIAN JOHNSON. PICKS IT UP, BRINGS IT TO THE NEARSIDE. HE IS THE 20. JULIAN JOHNSON IS SWARMED AND TACKLED SHORT OF THE 25 YARD LINE. 8:27 TO PLAY.

CHAD: MAKESHE CATCH AND HE IS DROPPED AT THE 38 YARD LINE. CHRIS SCO WHO JUST HAD TO PICK, MAY THE TACKLE. IT IS A PICKUP ON THE PLAY BUT THAT IS A LOAD TO BRING DOWN. PHILLIPS, TEXTBOOK TACKLE. BRIAN: THAT IS HOW YOU WANT TO TACKLE HIM. AS SOON AS HE GETS THE BALL. RIGHT UNDER HIS LEGS. CHAD: THIRD DOWN AND SIX COMING. BRADY SHANNON FIRES AND IT IS A DIVING CATCH BY PHILLIPS AT THE 50 YARD LINE FOR AN URSULINE FIRST DOWN. BRIAN: GREAT CATCH, GREAT THROW. THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL A RHYTHM THROW FOR A QUARTERBACK. BOOM. HE DOES A GREAT JOB GETTING RID OF IT. HE MAY HAVE GOTTEN THE SACK. CHAD: TRENTON HILL TO THE RIGHT OF BRADY SHANNON. ONE WIDE-OUT TO THE LEFT. SHANNON TAKES THE HANDOFF. COMPLETE. INSIDE THE 45 TO THE 44. JULIAN JOHNSON MAKES THE CATCH AND OUT THE URGENCY HAS PICKED UP FOR URSULINE. BRIAN: THIS IS THE PACE THEY PRACTICE WITH. ONE THING I COMMENTED IS THEY RUN A TON OF PLAYS DURING PRACTICE. THAT. CHAD: RUN PLAY GOES TO TRENTON HILL. MAY LOSE A YARD ON THE PLAY. THEY MAY SAY HE GOT BACK TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. IT WILL BE THIRD, SHORT LOSS ON THE PLAY. THIRD AND FIVE FOR URSULINE. BRIAN: THIRD-DOWN EFFICIENCY, ESPECIALLY FOR YOUNG OFFENSE. HE’S GOT TO BE ABLE TO CONVERT THIRD DOWNS BECAUSE OF NOT, YOU WILL SEND THE DEFENSE BACK ON THE FIELD AND YOU ALREADY PLAYED A TON TONIGHT. CHAD: AN INJURED AUSTINTOWN FITCH. HERE IN THE BALLGAME. WHILE WE HAVE A STOPPAGE OF PLAY, LET’S GO DOWN TO BROOKE. BROOKE: PLENTY OF INJURIES HAPPENING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FIELD FOR AUSTINTOWN FITCH. WE SAW T PLARS GO DOWN AFTER THE SAME PLAY. AUSTIN WINTERBERRY AND KYREE LONG. A.J. WINTERBURN ABLE TO WALK OFF BY HIMSELF. KYREE LONG HAD TO BE WALKED OFF, COULD NOT PUT PRESSURE ON HIS LEFT LEG SO CHECKING HIM FOR A POSSIBLE KNEE INJURY. PROBABLY WILL NOT SEE HIM BACK IN THE GAME. MATT REARDON GETTING CHECKED OUT BY EMTS, CHECKING FOR A POSSIBLE CONCUSSION SO WE PROBABLY WILL NOT SEE HIM AS WELL. CHAD: THANK YOU FOR THAT INFORMATION. PENALTY FLAG HAS BEEN THROWN. THE IRISH MOVE A LITTLE BIT PREMATURELY. REFEREE: SNAP INFRACTION, 56 WHITE. FIVE YARDS. CHAD: THAT IS RYAN PIGGIES WITH THAT SNAP INFRACTION. HOPEFULLY ALL OF THE INJURED PLAYERS THAT BROOKE WENT AND BACK QUICKLY.Y THEY ARE OK DOWNFIELD, DAIVON JONES MAKES THE CATCH INSIDE THE 45. HE IS DOWN TO THE 42 YARD LINE, SHORT OF A FIRST DOWN BUT THAT IS ANOTHER GREAT CATCH BY JONES. HE HAS BEEN IMPRESSIVE, ESPECIALLY LATELY. HE WENT UP AND GOT IT. THERE TO MAKE THE TACKLE, SOMEBODY WHO HAS BEEN VERY ACTIVE, CHRIS SCOTT. IT IS NOW FOURTH DOWN AND TWO. THIS IS A CRUCIAL MUST. THE IRISH MUST CONVERT. THREE WIDE RECEIVERS TO THE RIGHT, ONE NEARSIDE TO THE LEFT. BRADY SHANNON TAKES THE SNAP, PITCHES NEARSIDE. DAIVON JONES DOWN AT THE 44 YARD LINE. TURNOVER ON DOWNS. FITCH WILL HAVE IT WHEN WE COME BACK. FITCH 21, URSULINE SEVEN ON THE WKBN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK. CHAD: WELCOME BACK. LESKOVAC ON THE CARRY AROUND THE LEFT SIDE. THERE WAS A LOT OF CONFUSION AS THERE WAS A LATE FITCH PLAYER RACING ONTO THE FIELD, IN NO MAN’S LAND. THE PENALTY FLAG HAS BEEN THROWN. ILLEGAL PROCEDURE. NEVER A GOOD SIGN WHEN ERE IS A PLAYER JUST ABOUT SEVEN TO 10 YARDS ON THE FIELD AND NOT QUITE ON PLACE. SOMEBODY’S GOING TO HAVE AN EASY LOOK WHEREVER THAT IS. FIRST AND 15. BRIAN: THAT USUALLY NEVER GOES OVER WELL, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE THE COACH. CHAD: WOODBERRY TAKES THE HANDOFF. HE PUTS HIS HEAD DOWN AND JUST DOES GETS BACK TO THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. AGAIN, THAT CLOCK CONTINUING TO WIND DOWN AS WE APPROACH 5:00 LEFT. URSULINE HAS ALL THREE TIMEOUTS AUSTINTOWN FITCH HAS ALL THREE TIMEOUTS LEFT. GAIN OF ONE ON THE PREVIOUS PLAY, SECOND DOWN AND 14 FOR FITCH. ON THE KEEPER, IT IS LESKOVAC AS ANOTHER PENALTY FLAG IS THROWN. THIS SITUATION MAY GET MORE DIFFICULT FOR THE FALCONS.

HE IS PUSHED OUT O BOUNDS AT THE 47 YARD LINE AND HE IS REALLY CLOSE TO A FIRST DOWN BUT HE IS GOING TO BE ABOUT A YARD SHY. WE WILL SEE WHERE HE RULES OUT OF BOUNDS. IT LOOKS LIKE HE MAY BE TO YARDS SHY OF A FIRST DOWN. YOU THINK WITH A TWO TOUCHDOWN LEAD, YOU PUNT BUT WE WILL SEE. THEY ARE LEAVING THE OFFENSE OUT THERE PERHAPS. BRIAN: YOU COULD EITHER PUNT BUT IF YOU GET THE FIRST DOWN AND IN THE BALLGAME WITH THE BALL IN YOUR HANDS. TWO WAYS TO THINK ABOUT IT. CHAD: DEVIN SHERWOOD. BRIAN: BACK THE QUARTERBACK UP. CHAD: THEY MAY TAKE A TIMEOUT AS THE PLAY CLOCK IS WINDING DOWN. THAT IS EXACTING WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO. THEY WILL WIND THE CLOCK AS FAR DOWN AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE PRIOR TO A PENALTY. 4:27 LEFT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. 21-7, AUSTINTOWN FITCH LEADING URSULINE. FITCH HAS BEEN VERY GOOD HERE IN ITS HOME FIELD, HAVING WON SEVEN OF ITS LAST NINE CONTESTS AT FALCON STADIUM. URSULINE HAS REALLY STRUGGLED. THEY HAVE LOST THEIR LAST 10 ROAD CONTESTS HEADING IN. OVER THE LAST 31 GAMES, THEY HAVE POSTED A RECORD OF 6-25. YOU LOOK AT WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR THE IRISH, FIRST OF ALL, NO EASY PICKINGS. BLAKE CATHOLIC FOLLOWED BY ROAD GAMES THAT ARE VERY EXPLOSIVE. WARREN HARDING. UNLESS SOMETHING CHANGES, THEY WILL BE 0-2. WE WILL GET YOU THE FITCH SCHEDULE AND JUST A BIT BUT THE FALCONS WILL PUNT THEM AS LESKOVAC IS SET TO GIVE IT THE BOOT GOOD PRESSURE AGAIN. ANGLED TOWARDS THE NEARSIDE LINE AND OUT OF BOUNDS. FIRST DOWN AND 10 FOR URSULINE WITH 4:21 REMAINING. AS FAR AS WHAT THE FALCONS HAVE ON THEIR SCHEDULE, TWO STRAIGHT ROAD CONTESTS. CANTON, GLEN OAK. WARREN HARDING, CLEVELAND BENEDICT KNOCKED OFF URSULINE IN WEEK ONE. THIS IS A VERY MOTIVATED FITCH TEAM. I MET WITH THEM A COUPLE OF TIMES IN THE SUMMER FOLLOWING THE PASSING OF THEIR BELOVED HEAD COACH. THEY REALLY, REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED, DEDICATE ALL OF THEIR WINNING WAYS TO HIS MEMORY. WE’VE GOT 4:21 LEFT TO PLAY TO POLISH OFF THEIR SECOND VICRY AS THAT ONE IS INCOMPLETE. A WHOLE BUNCH OF GUYS TOGETHER. PHILLIPS WAS IN THE VICINITY FOR URSULINE, ALONG WITH JULIAN JOHNSON. A PENALTY FLAG CAME IN AS WELL. SOMEBODY MAY HAVE RUN THE WRONG ROUTE AS EVERYBODY WAS BUNCHED TOGETHER. BRIAN: USUALLY ON OFFENSE, WE SEE TWO RECEIVERS IN THE SAME AREA, SOMEBODY DID NOT RUN THE RIGHT ROUTE SO THAT IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE OF BEING THE CULPRIT. REFEREE: PASS INTERFERENCE, OFFENSE NUMBER THREE. FIRST DOWN. CHAD: IT IS OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE. BRIAN: IT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS TRYING T SHIELD THE DEFENSIVE BACK. CHAD: BRADY SHANNON HAS 4:15 FOR WHICH TO WORK TO TRY TO ORCHESTRATE A COMEBACK FROM TWO TOUCHDOWNS DOWN. SHANNON GOES BACK TO PASS, FLUSHED FROM THE POCKET. SHANNON FIRES IT TOWARDS THE NEARSIDE LINE AND IT IS INCOMPLETE. HE DID A GOOD JOB JUST ABLE TO UNCORK IT. BRIAN: THEY HAVE TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE WE HAVE THE SIDELINE REPORT SAYING REARDON WAS BEING CHECKED FOR A CONCUSSION. NOT SURE WHO THEY WILL GO TO QUARTERBACK. GOT TO BE CAREFUL HERE WHEN YOU ARE THE PLAY CALLER. CHAD: IT IS SECOND DOWN AND 23. BRADY SHANNON BACK TO THROW. HE DUMPS IT OFF, IT IS CAUGHT AT THE TENT. TO THE 15. OUT OF BOUNDS, OR IS HE? AFTER THAT IS SAID AND DONE, FINALLY OUT BOUNDS AS DAIVON JONES — HE IS ELECTRIC AND QUICK. DAIVON JONES. BRIAN: I THINK GOING FORWARD, URSULINE WILL FIND A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS TO GET THE KID THE BALL. THEY FELT LIKE THEY DID NOT DO A GOOD ENOUGH JOB OF GETTING HIM IN SPACE AND THAT WAS AN EMPHASIS FOR TONIGHT’S GAME. CHAD: 3:59 LEFT. THIRD-DOWN AND LONG. SHANNON STEPS UP. DROPPED AT THE 21-YARD LINE. THAT PRESSURE HAS BEEN RELENTLESS FROM AUSTINTOWN FITCH, ESPECIALLY ON THI DRIVE KNOWING THAT URSULINE IS GOING TO HAVE TO THROW THE BALL. IT IS COMING FROM ALL ANGLES. THAT IS JOE PEREZ GRABBING A HOLD OF HIS FOOT. THAT IS WOODBERRY AS WELL. SO PISHING THINGS OFF FOR PFITCH, IT WAS A.J. BYRD. FOURTH DOWN AND LONG. IN PUNT FORMATION FOR THE IRISH, MARC MANNING. THAT PUNT MAY HAVE BEEN RTIALLY DEFLECTED AS WELL. IT WILL TAKE AN URSULINE BOUNCED AND ROLLED INSIDE THE 50 AND BE TOUCHED DOWN AT THE 47 YARD LINE. AN EVEN 3:00 LEFT TO PLAY IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. AUSTINTOWN FITCH WITH A TWO TOUCHDOWN LEAD AT 21-7. AS YOU ASSESS WHAT THIS FITCH TEAM HAS DONE TONIGHT WITH THE WAY THEY HAVE ORCHESTRATED THE OFFENSE, THE STUDENT SECTION CERTAINLY LOVES IT, WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WHAT THIS FITCH TEAM DID THIS EVENING? WHBRIAN: WHAT I LOVE ABOUT WHAT THEY DID IS THEY PLAYED WITHIN THEIR SYSTEM. THE OFFENSE WAS HIGH TEMPO. THEY WERE DOWN THE URSULINE DEFENSE. SECOND HALF, NOT SO MUCH. DEFENSIVELY, THEY HAVE DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB MAINTAINING THIS IRISH OFFENSE. THEY PLAY FALCON FOOTBALL AND THAT IS ALL THEY WANT DO. CHAD: LESKOVAC TRYING TO CUT THE CORNER — 45, 40. ONE MEANT TO BEAT. 25, 15, 10 — THEY SAY HE STEPPED OUT OF BOUNDS SHORT OF TAKING IT IN FOR SIX. NATE LESKOVAC ALMOST HAD ANOTHER ONE FOR THE HIGHLIGHT REEL. THEY WILL SAY HE IS OUT OF BOUNDS AT THE FIVE. LET’S HAVE A LOOK. BRIAN: YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET HIM DOWN BY JUST TAKING YOUR ARM. YOU CANNOT ARM TACKLE. YOU HAVE TO RUN THROUGH THE BALLCARRIER. THERE IT WAS. CHAD: FROM THE FIVE YARD LINE, C.J. IS THE RUNNING BACK. LESKOVAC IS IN. TOUCHDOWN! THE EXCLAMATION POINT FOR FITCH. FIVE-YARD UCHDOWN RUN FOR NATE LESKOVAC. BRIAN: WHY NOT? THEY CALL THE QUARTERBACK. HE FINDS HIS BLOCKERS. TIP ARE CAP TO THE OFFENSIVE LINE. THEY HAVE DONE A TREMENDOUS JOB ALL NIGHT LONG CREATING MASSIVE HOLES FO THIS FITCH RUN GAME. TREMENDOUS JOB FOR THOSE GUYS UP FRONT. CH CARLO WALTERS ON TO KICK IN THE EXTRA POINT. THE KICK IS NO GOOD, WIDE LEFT. DOES NOT MATTER AT THIS POINT. IT IS AUSTINTOWN FITCH 27, URSULINE 7. HATS OFF TO NATE LESKOVAC WHO REALLY ENDED THINGS. A COUPLE OF BIG RUNS ON THAT ONE AND CAPPED THINGS OFF WITH A FIVE YARD TOUCHDOWN RUN. 2:42 LEFT TO PLAY. THAT DID NOT TAKE LONG. LESKOVAC HE RAN FOR NEARLY 250 YARDS ON THE GROUND LAST WEEK. HE HAS THAT INSTINCT. HE FINDS THE HOLE AND THEN HE FINDS THE SPEED TO JUST GO. BRIAN: YOU DON’T COACH THAT. THE KID HAS THAT INSTINCT. JUST LET HIM GO. HE HAS THAT KNACK. SOME KIDS HAVE IT, SOME KIDS DON’T. HE CERTAINLY DOES. HE IS A DELIGHT TO WATCH. I TELL YOU THAT. CHAD: I THINK NATE LESKOVAC MAY HAVE JUST CLENCHED A POST GAME CONVERSATION WITH US LLOWING THIS BALLGAME. AND WHY NOT? JOSIAH BERNI HAS IT TEED UP. 27-SEVEN IS OUR SCORE. THAT IS A SHORT POOCH KICK AND WHISTLES COME FROM EVERY DIRECTION IT SEEMS. ANOTHER PENALTY FLAG. COME DOWN WITH THOSE WHISTLES AND ACCOMPANIED THEM. SOMEBODY CAME ACROSS A LITTLE BIT TOO QUICK FOR THE FITCH FALCONS. THEY WILL KICK IT AGAIN THIS TIME. HOPEFULLY EVERYBODY WILL STAY BACK. BURN I’VE DRIVE TO DOWNFIELD. IT IS ACROSS THE 25 TO THE 3 DAIVON JONES, 48 OF STILL ON HIS FEET AND DVON JONES IS ELECTRIFYING TO WATCH. HE SET THE IRISH UP IN SOME PRETTY GOOD FIELD POSITION. AGAIN, VERY SHIFTY, VERY QUICK. SPIN MOVES ALONG THE WAY. BRIAN: IT WILL BE A POINT OF EMPHASISO GET THIS KID THE BALL EVERY WHICH WAY THEY CAN MOVING FORWARD. IT DEFINITELY WILL NOT BE THE LAST TIME YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS KID. CHAD: THE IRISH NOW WILL OPERATE, TRAILING BY 20 POINTS. BRADY SHANNON TAKES THE SNAP, HE FIRES. IT IS CAUGHT BY PHILLIPS. PHILLIPS BREAKS THE TACKLE D IS PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS AS HE REACHES THAT 35 YARD LINE. CLOCK STOPS WITH 2:28 LEFT. THIS ONE — PERSONAL AND THREE TIMEOUTS STILL. BRIAN: NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, THIS URSULINE TEAM IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE. YOU TALK TO COACH REARDON FOR ONE MINUTE AND YOU FIND OUT WHY HE HAS CHAMPIONSHIP RINGS ON HIS FINGERS. THEY ARE IN GOOD HANDS. THEY WILL IMPROVE. CHAD: BRADY SHANNON IS DROPPED ONCE AGAIN. BLASTING HIS WAY INTO THE BACKFIELD IS NATE LESKOVAC. A FORCE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BALL. A TIMEOUT HAS BEEN TAKEN BY THE IRISH. THIS KID IS RELENTLESS. PLAYS WITH A HIGH MOTOR AND HE PLAYS ALL FOUR QUARTERS. BRIAN: HE HAS BEEN TREMENDOUS. A REAL TREAT TO WATCH TONIGHT. IF ANY YOUNG FOOTBALL PLAYER OUT THERE IS WATCHING THIS TELECAST TONIGHT, I TELL YOU WHAT, YOU WANT TO PLAY LIKE NATE LESKOVAC. CHAD: YOU CAN TIP YOUR CAP TO NATE. YOU CAN TIP YOUR CAP TO ANY NUMBER OF THESE AUSTINTOWN FITCH FALCONS. THEY NOT ONLY CAN GET PRESSURE, THEY ARE GREAT IN COVERAGE. AGAIN, THEY ARE VERY SMART, CEREBRAL FOOTBALL PLAYERS AS WELL. BRIAN: ABSOLUTELY. TIP YOUR CAP TO THE COACHING STAFF AS WELL. THE DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR CAME OUT WITH A WELL DEVISED PLAN. ANYTIME YOUR TEAM CAN EXECUTED LIKE TONIGHT, YOU CAN BE VERY PROUD OF YOUR UNIT. WELL DONE. CHAD: 2:17 LEFT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. SHANNON TO THROW. MORE PRESSURE. HE IS DROPPED AT THE 45 YARD LINE. AGAIN. GUESS WHO? ONCE AGAIN, IT WAS LESKOVAC. ALSO THERE FOR FITCH, A.J. BYRD AND TOM RADER AS WELL. THIS FOURTH QUARTER CLOCK CONTINUES TO WIND DOWN AS THE PRESSURE SEEMS TO BE COMING FROM ALL ANGLES. THE IRISH WILL KEEP IT TO THE GROUND ON THIRD DOWN AND LONG. I THINK THEIR CONTENT JUST LETTING THIS CLOCK WIND DOWN. BRIAN: HAVING AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO JON ELLIOT AT LENGTH. THIS GUY IS A TREMENDOUS GUY. BEING THAT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HE’S HAD AN OPPORTUTY TO GET A CHANCE TO BE HEAD COACH. NOT IN A SITUATION HE WOULD HAVE LIKED BUT IT IS BEYOND ME THAT THIS IS HIS FIRST OPPORTUNITY HE HAS HAD BECAUSE HE IS A TREMENDOUS INDIVIDUAL. A TREMENDOUS COACH. IHE FITCH FOOTBALL PROGRAM IS IN GREAT HANDS MOVING FORWARD WITH JON ELLIOT AT THE HELM. CHAD: THAT PASSED PALLS AND COMPLETE IT IS A TURNOVER ON DOWNS AND FITCH CAN TAKE A COUPLE OF KNEES OR RUN BASIC RUN PLAYS AND PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THIS ONE. WE WILL PUT THE WRAPS ON WEEK TWO. A REMINDER COMING UP — NEXT WEEK, WE WILL ANNOUNCE OUR WHEREABOUTS FOR WEEK THREE OF THE WKBN HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK. WE WILL HAVE THAT INFORMATION FOR YOU AT WKBN.COM AND THE WKBN MOBILE APP. STAY TUNED FOR THAT. LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. AUSTINTOWN FITCH HAVING PILED UP A BOATLOAD OF YARDAGE TONIGHT, AS THE FALCONS ARE GOING TO START THE SEASON 2-0. THE FALCONS WILL INDEED KEEP IT TO THE GROUND. ON THE CARRY, IT’S DEVIN SHERWOOD. WHO ALSO SHOWED NICELY HERE IN THIS ONE TONIGHT. WE’RE CLOSING IN ON 20 SECOND — 30 SECONDS LEFT IN WEEK NUMBER TWO. BEFORE THIS ONE IS IN THE BOOKS, I’M NOT SURE WE MAY SNAP IT AGAIN. WE MAY. THE MOST FUN FORMATION FOR ANY FOOTBALL TEAM REGARDLESS OF LEVEL IS THE ONE THAT YOU SEE THE FALCONS IN RIGHT NOW. VICTORY FORMATION. BRIAN: WELL PLAYED GAME BY THE FITCH FALCONS.
