Chaffee falls to St. Vincent

Sunday, October 23, 2005

CHAFFEE -- St. Vincent turned two interceptions into touchdowns, and Waylon Richardet scored two TDs to lead the Indians past Chaffee 42-8 on Friday night.

The Indians (6-2) won their fifth straight game.

Though this was a nonconference game, they are perfect in the Mississippi Area Football Conference Blue Division for small schools at 4-0.

The Indians this Friday will host Ste. Genevieve Valle Catholic, also 6-2 overall and 4-0 in the MAFC Blue.

More importantly, after Valle's 29-8 nonconference win against Hayti on Friday, next weekend's clash will go a long way toward determining the Class 1 District 1 champion.

St. Vincent is the defending Class 1 state champion.

On the other end of the spectrum is Chaffee, which fell to 0-8 this year and has lost 32 consecutive games.

The Red Devils, playing at home, fell behind 28-0 at halftime.

An interception return by Seth Amschler of 30 yards put St. Vincent on the board. Lucas Robinson, who had a 50-yard interception return in the second half, ran for a short touchdown run in the first quarter. Quarterback Tim Guilliams scored on the two-point conversion to make the score 14-0.

Then Richardet scored on a touchdown run and on a 35-yard pass from Guilliams.

Eric Clements returned the opening kickoff of the second half 60 yards to put St. Vincent ahead 35-0.

Kent Courtney scored for Chaffee, with quarterback Michael Lee running in the two-point conversion.

ROCKWOOD -- The Jackson football team fell behind 23-0 in the first quarter, as host Rockwood Summit began Class 5 District 1 play with a 30-6 victory Friday night.

The Indians, who had a four-game winning snapped, fell to 5-3, while the Falcons improved to 4-4.

Summit received the opening kickoff and marched 60 yards for a touchdown. The drive was capped by quarterback John Burton's 3-yard run for a 7-0 lead.

Jackson's first offensive possession ended when quarterback Rex Meyr was intercepted on the third play. Eddie Calvin ran it back for a touchdown and a 14-0 advantage less than 6 minutes into the contest.

The Indians were forced to punt on their second possession. The Falcons again put together a solid drive, leading to Barry Mathes' field goal for a 17-0 lead.

Jackson fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and Summit recovered deep in Indians' territory. With under a minute to play in the opening period, Burton hit Austin Hulett for an 18-yard touchdown pass, boosting the Falcons lead to 23-0.

Summit made it 30-0 late in the third quarter when Burton hit Calvin on an 18-yard touchdown pass.

Jackson finally got on the board early in the fourth quarter when Meyr hit Luke Crader with a 29-yard touchdown pass.

The Indians play their second of three district games next Friday night, hosting pre-district favorite Eureka.

HILLSBORO -- Scott City used a reverse on a kickoff to set up a late touchdown for its third win of the season.

The Rams (3-5) intercepted a Grandview pass with less than a minute to play to preserve the win in Class 2 District 2.

Scott City plays next week at Crystal City, which beat Charleston on Friday night.
