FRIDAY, Sept. 13


ELKHART – Warsaw went into Elkhart Memorial on Friday night hoping to pick up a win after last week’s emotional win over Plymouth, and the Tigers efficiently managed a 28-0 shutout win over the Chargers.

Led by outstanding defensive play, the Tigers improve to 3-1 and 2-0 in the Northern Lakes Conference heading into this week’s Homecoming matchup against Northridge.  The Raiders, who took Plymouth to the wire on Friday night before a late-minute rally fell short in a 21-14 loss, also stand 3-1.

The defense, allowing just 137 yards of total offense to the Chargers, came up with a big stop early in the game after Memorial took over deep in Tiger territory.  Warsaw then rolled downfield to score on an 18-yard run by Tristan McClone.  Caleb Klusman’s first of four extra points put the Tigers up 7-0 with 4:55 showing in the quarter.  The Tigers scored again early in the second quarter when McClone pushed it in from 4 yards out, and Warsaw went to the locker room up 14-0.  The defense again provided a spark in the second half, stopping the Chargers on the opening drive of the third and Warsaw marched down the field, capped by a 5-yard scoring plunge by Jason Taylor, and Warsaw was up 21-0.  McClone capped the scoring early in the fourth quarter with a 1-yard run.

The Tigers managed a 265-72 advantage on the ground and ate up 27:45 of possession time compared to 20:15 by the chargers.  McClone led Warsaw with 146 yards on 28 carries and Taylor had 53 yards on 10 carries.

Seth Fouts and Kyle Heckaman both recorded 7.5 tackles and Gabe Furnivall had 7 tackles to lead Warsaw.  Darren Schaefer and Chris Wooldridge both had five and four tackles respectively, and Ben Plummer recorded a sack.   Heckaman and Brett Fancil both had interceptions for the Tigers.

WARSAW – With Concord and Warsaw two of the top Northern Lakes Conference girls soccer programs in recent seasons having played some emotional contests over the recent years, the Tigers played in front of their biggest home crowd of the season Thursday at the Tigers Soccer Complex.

The Lady Tigers did not disappoint the home crowd, dominating the midfield and blasting 14 shots toward the Concord net.

The scoreless deadlock ended nine minutes into the second half when Danielle Hutcherson blasted a shot from 40-yards out, just over the head and off the fingertips of the Minutemen keeper, hitting the net to put the Tigers on top 1-0.  After the Concord keeper turned back a barrage of shots, Hutcherson took a pass from Brooklyn Jackson, made a move to her right and fired a rocket toward the net for the game-winner.

Senior Abby Schue earned the shutout in front of the Tigers net recording three saves.


Christina Tlahuetl scored with five minutes remaining to earn a 3-2 victory over Concord in the JV matchup.    Jessica Keyes scored off a Tlahuetl assist, and Kristen Reese scored off an assist from Rosie Fleming to tie the match in the second half and set up the late-minute game winner.


WARSAW – The Tigers scored a pair of quick touchdowns in the first quarter and held on for a 14-8 victory over visiting Plymouth, Thursday at the Tigers Athletic Complex.

Robbie Sullivan racked up 87 yards rushing on 16 carries and a touchdown, and Jeremy David had 65 yards rushing on eight carries.  Rane Killburn also scored a touchdown for the Tigers on a touchdown pass from quarterback Joseph Harness.  Andrew Mevis converted a pair of extra points.

The Tigers’ defense applied the pressure on Plymouth and allowed just one score and came up with a late-game stop to secure the win.  Dylan Hernandez led the Tigers with 10 tackles while Evan McKinley and Jeremy David registered 7 and 5 tackles respectively.  David and DeAndre Street also had interceptions for the Tigers, while Ethan Hoff and Braxton Tennant both recorded quarterback sacks.
