Cardinals Let One Slip Away at Brookfield

South Shelby senior Gentry Buzzard sacks Brookfield quarterback Bryce Howerton early in the game on Friday, August 19, at Brookfield.

It was a game that was very winnable, but the South Shelby Cardinals weren’t quite able to pull at their season opener Friday night at Brookfield, falling 14-7 to the Bulldogs.
   The Cardinals were able to set the tone early on the defensive side of the ball. After their opening drive stalled, South Shelby forced a fumble behind the line of scrimmage on Brookfield’s first play from scrimmage. The Cardinals’ Gentry Buzzard recovered the fumble on the Brookfield 20 yard line.
   Both teams killed themselves with penalties for much of the night, and the Cardinals did so on this drive. Two false start penalties, along with two quarterback sacks, forced the Cardinals to eventually turn the ball over on downs.
   After Brookfield went three and out, the Cardinals were able to put together their only scoring drive of the game.
   Starting from their own 45 yard line, Coach Rob Wilt gave Brookfield a heavy dose of Cody McKenzie. McKenzie carried the ball seven straight times, highlighted by a 13 yard pickup on the last play of the quarter to convert a third down and 12, giving the Cards a first down at the Brookfield 24 yard line. Four plays later on fourth and five, it was sophomore Brock Wood going around the left side and juking a defender on his way to the endzone for a 19 yard touchdown run. The point after was good by Austin Schaefer, making the score 7-0 South Shelby with 10:27 to play in the first half.
   The Bulldogs would answer on their next drive by going 73 yards on eight plays. They were hit with two illegal block penalties, but were still able to overcome those. The drive was capped by a four yard run by senior Cale Horton. However, the point after was no good and the Cardinals still held on to a 7-6 advantage with 7:34 to play in the first half.
   Both teams continued to shoot themselves in the foot. The Cardinals gave up another quarterback sack which killed their next drive, and then Brookfield fumbled the ball back to the Cardinals as Austin Schaefer was able to make the recovery on the Bulldogs’ next drive.
   The Cardinals had a great chance to put more points on the board at that time, starting from the Brookfield 24 yard line, but a holding penalty would prove to be too much to overcome.

The South Shelby Lady Birds opened the season at home against Knox County on Monday, August 22, with an 8-3 win.
   The Lady Birds used a four run inning in the bottom of the third inning to build a lead and never relinquished it behind the pitching of Alex Fenton.
   Fenton pitched seven innings, allowing three unearned runs in the top of the fourth inning after several miscues by the defense. She struck out five, allowing no walks and six hits.
   South Shelby opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning when Ebony Teter doubled and later scored on an error, putting the Lady Birds ahead 1-0 after one inning.
   In the bottom of the third inning, with the Lady Birds ahead 3-0, South Shelby’s Lily Wegman hit a line drive into left centerfield for a two run double to push the lead to 5-0.
   Knox County responded with three runs in the top of the fourth inning. After two outs to start the inning, the Lady Eagles took advantage of back to back errors by the Lady Birds to put runners at first and second. The next batter for Knox County, Reagan Winter, doubled to score both runs and cut the deficit to 5-2. Winter would then score on another error by the South Shelby defense, but Fenton struck out the final batter of the inning to stop the Knox County rally. South Shelby led 5-3 heading the to bottom of the fourth inning.
