NEW SEASON, SAME TROUBLE - EC CAN'T STOP CAMELS, 31-14 PDF Print E-mail

ST. LEON - East Central football's hopes for a turnaround season looked good for one half Friday night against first-time Kentucky Class 6A foe Campbell County.

Trojans, 4-7 a year ago, proved that one of its main 2013 weaknesses won't be a quick fix. Frequently whipped up front, especially in the defensive line, East Central saw a 14-13 halftime lead evaporate in a final 24 minutes that was all Camels, 31-14.

EC defense had few answers for the two-pronged read option running attack of Campbell County junior QB Carson Plessinger (142 yards, two TDs) and runningback Josh Carroll (79 yards, TD). Its own run game was somewhat effective early on a hot, extremely humid night at Trojan Field. After halftime, EC was unable to run effectively.

And, again, Trojan turnovers and penalties cropped up to bite, giving the Camels possession deep in EC territory three times, all of which resulted in CC scores.

“I felt like we competed and played physical,” said EC coach Justin Roden. “Their offensive line really wore us down in the second half. We made too many mistakes and at times tackled poorly. We need to clean that up as we look to improve this week. It was our first four-quarter football game, and that showed.”

TROJAN BOYS EDGED 1-0 BY NO. 4 COLUMBUS NORTH - AGAIN PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS, Ind. - East Central boys varsity soccer started its 2014 season Tuesday night where it left off in last season's Class 2A regional.

The result was identical, as well, with the Trojans – who graduated 14 seniors from their 15-6-1 EIAC and sectional champion 2013 team – falling 1-0 to host Columbus North, ranked No. 4 in the state coaches' preseason poll.

Playing on the Bull Dogs' Richard Wye Soccer Complex home turf, EC pressed the action for the first five minutes before possession time began to balance out.

EC varsity keeper David Jutzi highlighted the early play, making a save to his right, then recovering quickly to smother the rebound attempt.

ST. LEON – East Central girls varsity soccer spotted visiting Cincinnati Sycamore a 1-0 halftime lead before roaring back for a 4-1 victory in Tuesday's home opener.

Now 2-0, Coach Jim Lockwood Sr.'s Lady Trojans got two goals apiece from senior Katie Ravenna and sophomore Hannah Schloemer to vanquish the visiting Aviators on a hot, humid afternoon.

Ten different EC players took a total of 19 shots on goal, as possession time greatly favorite the hosts. But nothing found net until Ravenna (five shots) broke the scoring ice early in the second 40 minutes.

BROOKVILLE – East Central girls varsity soccer picked right up where it left off in 2013 with a 7-0 opening day victory at conference rival Franklin County Monday.

Lady Trojans, 16-2-2 conference and sectional champion a year ago and ranked No. 21 in the final ISCA Class 2A state coaches' poll, hit a bump in the road when 20-year head coach Jim Lockwood Sr. underwent emergency triple-bypass heart surgery on the same day as his team's 1-0 regional tourney loss to Columbus East.

By all accounts, the 62-year old Lockwood's recovery has been exceptional, with all returning to business as usual this summer.

Despite graduating 14 seniors last May, East Central girls soccer started strong again Monday, breaking open a 2-0 match at halftime with five second-half goals.

ST. LEON – New East Central High School head football coach Justin Roden did an in-depth analysis of nearly everything after the Trojans' painful slip to 4-7 last fall.

A combination of 22 graduated starters, a corresponding drop in size, skill and experience - not to mention green youngsters trying to grasp a brand-new system, plus decimating injuries that seemed to focus on certain position groups – resulted in EC's first losing campaign in 23 years.

The final verdict was clear. “It's all a matter of being more astute on the details,” said the 37-year old Trojan mentor, a former assistant coach at Cincinnati powerhouse Colerain, where he also played for legendary coach Kerry Coombs, now an Ohio State staffer.

“Things that have been taken for granted for years around here, we've got to try and get back to that.”

How best to return East Central to the ranks of perennial contenders for a Class 4A sectional title, not to mention its accustomed dominance of Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference football?

Roden answers before the question is even asked.

“We've brought several East Central people back to coach,” he said.

He isn't kidding.
