WHAT WORD FITS?
Dominating? Punishing? Overwhelming?
Pick any one of those, or all of those and that would be the description of last nights 47-7 Little Giant win over Cleveland Benedictine. From the first quarter when Tyler Wolf hit Greg Brown on an 85 yard TD pass to the runback of a fumble by JJ Moreno in the fourth quarter, Ross was hitting on all cylinders last night.
Once again the determined running of Tylor Trautwein impressed. The young man ran through, over, and carried along, Bengal defenders time and again. His four touchdowns were fun to watch. The running of Trent Stout, and Matt Egbert were big contributions to this win as well.
Tyler Wolf is just a Sophomore folks. That young man had a stellar night. His poise and leadership will only continue to develop. Kudos to Coach Kidwell for his ability to develop good QB's for our program. When all is said and done, Wolf could very well be the best QB to come out of Fremont Ross.
The Little Giant D. WOW. What a difference a week makes. The Ross defense shut Benny down. Miranda, Moreno and company did a tremendous job last night. That Drew Starks pick of a Bengal pass in the second half was well deserved. He nearly had one just a little before that, so when he actually did get the int. it was nice to see, and it snuffed out a Benedictine drive.
If Benedictine thought that the second half was going to be a turnaround for them Tylor Trautwein took care of that with his 92 yard return of the kickoff for a TD. Very nice.
Gabe Tayar missed on two FG attempts. He JUST missed on a 51 yard attempt as the first half ended. His kicking, along with Eric Hogels punting kept Benedictine bottled up in their end of the field most of the game.
I was sitting next to the scouts from Cleveland Central Catholic. The Ironmen host Benedictine next week. The CCC scouts were raving about the Little Giants and I can say that Fremont Ross football recruited several new fans last night as a result. It was enjoyable listening to them rave about the Little Giants.
And how about Bedfords stadium. What a beautiful facility! The only downside was the scoreboard. I had no idea what the clock read the entire game. Behind the visitors side there were deer grazing in a field. The place was very nice.
Our series with Benedictine ends for now. But what a way for it to end. Let's now focus on keeping next weeks opponents from University School at 599 wins. They'll be shooting for win 600 next Saturday night at the Don.
