O'S JONES ROLLS FOR 238 YARDS, 5 TDS VS. KNIGHTS PDF Print E-mail

COLUMBUS, Ind. - Indiana Mr. Football candidate Markell Jones rushed for 238 yards and five touchdowns in little more than a half of action in Friday's 82-13 win by No. 1-ranked Columbus East over South Dearborn.

SD's Knights, who finished at 2-8, did manage two touchdowns against a strong Olympians' defense, in the second and third quarters. South Dearborn trailed 28-0 after one quarter in Friday's Class 4A Sectional 23 opener at Stafford Field, 55-6 at halftime and by the final tally after three periods.

"We were able to move the ball and garner some first downs against their strong defense," said SD coach Chris Nobbe. "We were able to find creases in their coverages, and the timing of our offense was much better than it has been in previous weeks.

"Columbus East is certainly a legitimate power team. Markell Jones is a very impressive back. He reminded me of power backs like Kevin Dudley or Andrew Wolf from our conference in recent years. But he is also quite elusive when he needs to be. He probably equates most to (Franklin County Mr. Football) Alex Smith in terms of running style."

BROOKVILLE - South Dearborn volleyball advanced, as expected, past EIAC rival Rushville in Thursday night's IHSAA Class 3A Sectional 29 first round at Franklin County.

But it was far from easy for coach Michelle Standriff's Lady Knights, who needed four tight sets to record their ninth victory in 24 matches this season, 3-1. Lady Lions finished their season at 2-18, despite a spirited effort.

Led by senior Morgan Zoller's 10 spike kills, along with six each from Bre Upton, Delaney Murphy and Shelby Phiester, SD survived the gruelling battle, 25-19, 17-25, 25-22, 25-23.

AURORA - The defense that had been a bright spot in a tough 2-7 South Dearborn football season finally broke in the second half Saturday.

Hosting one-time-only opponent Fort Wayne Southside for a rare afternoon kickoff to flesh out Week 9 of the IHSAA schedule, a one-win team with similar struggles, SD's Knights saw a 17-6 third-quarter lead ultimately fall, 20-17.

"We sometimes need to figure out how to get out of our own way," said Knights head coach Chris Nobbe, who knows best.

"We have made crucial errors in turnovers or penalties over the past three weeks that have cost us dearly in each game. We must continue to improve in this aspect. The offense was able to move the ball and sustain some drives. But, like at Rushville (7-6 loss Oct. 10), we did not make the play we needed at the right time."

AURORA - South Dearborn boys cross country earned yet another trip to the semistate with a fifth-place team finish in Saturday's IHSAA regional on the home course.

So did precocious East Central freshman Abby Bittner, who placed 10th among girls regional individual finishers to crack the top 15 necessary to advance to this coming Saturday's Carmel semistate.

Coach Jeremy Baney's host Knights boys harriers nailed down the fifth and final team qualifying spot with a score of 127, led by 12th-place all-regional senior Jared Davis, who timed 17:27 for the 5K (3.1-mile) event.

RUSHVILLE - If Friday’s 7-6 high school football loss in the rain and slop at Rushville’s Hinshaw Field doesn’t break South Dearborn hearts, nothing will.

Once again, coach Chris Nobbe’s Knights - now 2-6, riding their second three-game slide of the season - played their guts out defensively, only to come up maddeningly short.

"We were able to move the ball throughout the night, but our inability to capitalize in the red zone certainly affected us," Nobbe said. "The old proverb of 'shoot yourself in the foot' certainly would be an apt description for the night. Our opportunities were vast, but they were squandered by penalties and turnovers."

Senior placekicker Tanner Anderson scored SD’s only points of the game on a 34-yard first-quarter field goal, for the early 3-0 lead at 8:45, and a 31-yarder at 6:27 in the third period to bring his team back within 7-6.

ST. LEON - South Dearborn boys cross country runners proved to be the cream of the crop in the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference Championships for a fifth consecutive year Wednesday night at East Central.

In the eight-team EIAC meet, pushed back from Tuesday due to heavy rain and tornado watch, coach Jeremy Baney's Knights placed all top five boys runners among the top 12 all-conference finishers, scoring a 37-45 win over runner-up Batesville.

Although Batesville junior Connor Bell took the boys conference MVP award as top individual finisher in a time of 17:24 for the 5K (3.1-mile) race, South Dearborn senior Justin Beach was second under the wire in 17:31.

Knights marked their sixth EIAC boys cross country title in school history, dating back to the very first conference meet, contested in the fall of 1987.

ST. LEON - A heavy underdog in Wednesday night's Class 2A Sectional 26 semifinal round matchup against Batesville, South Dearborn girls soccer battled bravely to keep the match scoreless for 60-plus minutes.

Coach John Litcholt's Lady Knights (9-9 final) ultimately fell 2-0 to the EIAC rival Bulldogs, who got two goals in the final 19:52 from junior Morgan Puente.

SD defense played its heart out, repelling repeated attacks as Batesville tallied a total of 29 shots on goal to the Knights' own nine.

South Dearborn goalkeeper Emma Veid, a senior, did yeoman work in her final match, stopping 13 Bulldogs shots. SD defenders, led by junior stopper Tara Bailey, were active and aggressive all the way.
