Philip Scotties steamroll over Wall Eagles, 50-12

A nice big hole ... was made by the line for ball carrier Casey Cvach during the Philip/Wall game in Wall on Saturday, September 26. Teamwork like this carried the day for a 50-12 win for the Scotties.

Saturday September 26, found the Philip Scotties hosted by the Wall Eagles in an afternoon game that had been rescheduled due to not being able to find officials for Friday. Philip won 50-12 and Casey Cvach set a new Philip player rushing record.

"Overall, the game was a hard hitting affair which is always present between these two schools," said Coach Keven Morehart. "The Scotties scored quickly and often. I felt that our offensive line once again did a tremendous job of opening up holes for our running backs. They continue to impress me with their drive and determination each and every play. I can't say enough about Colin, Clint, Trey and Troy. Coach Baer did an excellent job of mixing up the play selection so the Eagle's couldn't key on one player."

"Offensively, Karch Foley and Casey Cvach had tremendous games. Karch ran for 107 yds and three touchdowns while Casey had 362 yds (new school record) and four TDs. Brandon O'Dea continues to do a nice job of running the offense.

"Defensively, the whole unit did a wonderful job of containing the Eagle's speed. We have a saying "75," which means that when the play is dead we want seven players within five yards of the ball. There were times all nine men were there. We continue to play aggressive football and tend to wear teams down. Troy Guptill, I believe, had three sacks and did this all with a dislocated finger that happened early in the game. He is an excellent example of "Scottie Pride," said Morehart.

Philip scored first with a Casey Cvach 66-yard run. He then ran in the conversion. During the game, he ran in three more TDs, one from 85 yards out, one from 55 and another from 23. Karch Foley carried the ball eight times for a total of 107 yards. His three TDs resulted from a 48 yard run, a 34 and a 3. Wall scored only in the third quarter, first with a Timmy Grimmett 30-yard carry from a Philip fumble, then a 26 yard Calder Johnston pass to Darick Eisenbraun.

Philip remains undefeated, while Wall now holds a 3-1 record.

"This Friday night we have a tough opponent in the White River Tigers, who we have not beaten in two years. Our defense of Clint, Trey, Karch, Troy, Colin, Jeff, Tucker, Wyatt and Travis and anyone else who gets in the game will need to have the best performance of the season. Offensively, again our line needs to have a great game. Hope to see you all there on Friday night," said Morehart.
