Print This Story Print This Story

The Cadiz Cardinals and Jewett-Scio Vikings Biddy Football teams were scheduled to play their games on Sunday, but due to the weather they were rescheduled for Tuesday, October 5th.  By rescheduling the game, the kids were able to play under the lights at the Harrison Central High School.

As the 3rd and 4th grade teams took the field, the Vikings proved they were there to play.  The first play of the game, Cale McAfee, took the ball the full length of the field to score the first touchdown.  The Vikings kept the momentum going by getting the 2-point conversion, making the score 0-8.
The Cardinals were able to answer with their own touhdown by Bryce Wade.  Cardinals were unable to get the extra points, making the score 6-8 by the middle of the first quarter.

At the end of the first quarter, Kobe Mitchell of the Cardinals recovered a fumble at the Viking 32 yard line.  With the new quarter, Cards were able to drive the ball to the Viking 1 but the Vikings held their ground and forced a turn over on downs by pushing the Cards back to the 5 yard line.

Cardinals were able to answer there turnover from downs by forcing the Vikings to punt after only gaining 4 yards in three plays.  After pushing their way across the field again, with only 35 seconds left in the half, Cruz Capers was able to get the ball into the end zone.  The Cards extra point was denied, making the score 12-8 going into the half.

The Vikings and Cards were able to hold each other to no more scoring, until the final series of the game.  Vikings took the ball at their own 35 yard line and drove the ball up the field.  With 1 second left on the clock, Vikings were at the Cardinal 9 yard line.  Final play of the game left the Vikings at the 4 and no time on the clock. 

Both teams played an amazing, nail biter of a game, but ultimately the Cardinals were able to prevail with the final score of 12-8.

Immediately following the 3rd and 4th graders, the 5th and 6th grade teams took the field. 

In the first quarter Caden Arbaugh, of the Jewett-Scio Vikings, ran the ball from his own 35 yard line to the end zone, but the team was unable to convert the extra point making the score 0-6.

Cadiz Cardinals answered the score by pushing the ball back up the field.  From inside the Viking 5 yard line, Marlon Lawrence was able to push the ball into the end zone, but the team couldn’t make the conversion leaving the score tied at 6-6.

As the game continued back and forth, Caden Arbaugh of the Vikings was finally able to run the ball from the Cadiz 35 yard line for another touchdown.  This time, J-S was able to convert the extra point making the score 6-14.

Inside the half way mark of the second quarter, the Cards passed the ball down the field with the final pass going to JR Heavilin with him running into the endzone.  Cardinals’ extra point attempt was denied leaving the score 12-14 going into the half.

By the time fourth quarter rolled around, there was no change in the score as the Cards and Vikings went back and forth across the field.  Finally, Marlon Lawrence of the Cardinals was able to run the ball into the end zone to make the score 18-14.  With some tough defense and time management, the Cardinals were able to hold the Vikings to the middle of the field for the remainder of the game, giving the Cardinals another win.

The next game for each team will be this Sunday, October 9th.  Jewett-Scio’s 5th and 6th graders will be taking on Bridgeport Bulldogs on their home field in Scio.  Both of Cadiz’s teams will be taking on the other Bridgeport Bulldog teams at the Cadiz High School field starting at 2:00.
