Tyler Tribute - Page 14 Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Photo by Mark Wilmes RTR's Chloe Hess tips the ball past a pair of KMS defenders last week. Knights end schedule with 3-2 win over KMS By Jim Kopei Tribute Sports The volleyball Knights had to play five sets last Tuesday, but in the end it was worth the wait as they would win their sixth Cam- den Conference victory to have a winning record in the conference for the year. The scores were 16-25, 25- 23, 25-17, 20-25 and 15- 10. The first set saw the Knights come out quite slow. Coach Brown felt the long weekend at the Sub- way Classic might have been the problem. "We just didn't have the energy we needed in that first set. We were flat and lacked the team effort needed to win." The Knights got to within two points at 15-17 before KMS scored eight of the next nine points to win handily. The second set saw 10 ties during the tense battle. A kill by Madison Witte and an ace serve by Mya Chris- tensen saw a score of 20-16 for the home team Knights. However, KMS would knot things up at 22. Kills by Lexi Wendland and Chloe Hess made the score 24-22. After a point by KMS, Hess dropped another kill to win the set. The third set also saw a score of 20-16 for the Knights. This time the Knights didn't let KMS get as close. A kill by Hess plus three kills by Tina Harold- son put the score on the proper side of the ledger. Haroldson had the game- winner. The fourth set was tied on five occasions until KMS decided to take control. After the 8-8 tie they out- scored RTR 7-3 to have a nice cushion of four points when the score was 15-11. The home team Knights could get no closer than three points the rest of the way. The deciding fifth set was a thrilling one from the start. There were ties at 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 be- fore the Lady Knights took control. Lexi Wendland actually had a kill to tie matters at 8. She then had two more kills to give the Knights a two-point lead. Chloe Hess added a kill for a three-point advantage. Wendland would then have three more kills for victory in the set and match. Fresh- man Haley Muenchow had a monster kill in the set to get the set even at 6. Mad- die Ekema was serving for four of the five points to end the evening. Chloe Hess had her thoughts on this long night at the net. "I think we were communicating better af- ter the first set. When we talk we become more of a team." Lexi Wendalnd led the killers on this evening with 20, seven of them in the all-important fifth set. Tina Haroldson added 19 kills to her numbers for the year. Chloe Hess had her best match on the killing side with 13 very important smashes. Mya Christensen had six kills plus another 51 set assists to help the offensive effort. Hess and Kalleigh Cart had the only service aces. Chloe Hess and Madison Witte each had three block points in the match. Rylie Hess and Tina Harold- son each added two block points. Kalleigh Carr and Tina Haroldson were the top diggers with 45 and 39, respectively. Madison Muenchow, Morgan John- son and Chloe Hess con- tributed 14, 11 and 10 digs, respectively. The Lady Knights fin- ished the conference part of their schedule with a record of 6-5. This mark places them in fifth place in the conference among the 12 teams. TMB was per- fect with a 11-0 mark. The overall record now stands at 12-11. The north half of the seedings have been an- nounced and the RTR Lady Knights have been seeded sixth. They will play in Tyler on Oct. 23 against the llth seed, RCW. That match will start at promptly 7 p.m. The winner of that match will travel to Clara City to play MACCRAY on the 26th of October with start time at 7 p.m. MACCRAY is the number three seed. (GO LADY KNIGHTS) Give a gift subscription to the Tyler Tribute today! By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The weather was perfect for football last Friday in Edgerton. It was Edgerton- Ellsworth's Homecoming. The fans on both sides of the field were loud. Both teams had the same record going into the game, 4-2. You would expect a great game. It was all that and more. The Knights had to stop the Dutchmen at the 2-yard line with about two minutes left in the game. They managed to do that then pull out a surprise play on offense to seal the win. Coach Fredrickson was elated after the big win. "We had some kids who really stepped up in the later part of the game. The big pass knock down by ]ake Fischer, the fumble recovery by Jon Lucero, and the defensive line play by Cameron Nelson really told the story in our win. We were one tired team after the game, but also a very happy bunch." The Knights would score first as Jake Fischer would rumble in from three yards out for the score. He would also add the 2-point con- version. That was the only 2-point conversion made during the game as the other six tries by the two teams were all failures. The Dutchmen would get their first score in the first quarter on a passing play as the Knight passing de- fense was not noticeable during this time. The Knight defense, with Westin Kirk com- ing up with a huge QB sack, stopped the home team from scoring more in the second quarter. The Knights, however, were at their own 3-yard line and looked to be in serious trouble on offense. The Dutchmen got caught with a penalty that gave the Knights some breathing room. They would take full advantage. The big play in the offen- sive drive was a 53-yard pass and run from QB Coo- per Hansen to Westin Kirk that took the ball to the 12-yard line. A pass from Cooper to Carter Hansen of eight yards produced the second RTR TD. The score was now 14-6. The Dutchmen would score with under two minutes left in the half to make the Cooper Hansen Jake Fischer intermission score 14-12. The Knight defense came up with another fumble re- covery early in the second half as lake Fischer found the pigskin rolling around. The defense by both teams came to play in the third quarter. Cameron Nelson and Kyle Fischer had a couple of huge plays on defense to keep the Dutch- men out of the endzone. However, on third down, the home team used a passing play to put them- selves in the lead when the score was now 14-18. Very little time was left in the third quarter. Jake Fischer would have a 22-yard receiving return of a Dutchman kickoff to set the Knights in some good field position to start their next offensive drive. A four-yard Fischer run ended the third quarter. Anyone who needed to leave the game after the third quarter really missed an exciting fourth quarter. The second play of the fourth quarter saw QB Hansen hit Fischer for a 60-yard bomb for a score that gave the lead back to the Knights. The score now read 20-18. On the next defensive series, Fis- cher would knock down a Dutchman pass at the Knight 10-yard line on fourth down. The Knights would strike quickly. Three straight runs by QB Hansen, the last one of 78 yards, pro- duced the final RTR score. He would total 90 yards in the three runs. There were just under six minutes left in the game with the score now 26-18. Those six minutes took forever. The Dutchmen were ready to score from the 2-yard line when a fumble recovery by ]on Lucero gave the ball back to the Knights at their own 3-yard line. Two runs of a total of two yards with the clock running saw the Knights on third down. The Knights' brass or braintrust decided to gamble. QB Hansen would hit Jonah Johnson with a 29-yard pass to seal the victory. WOW! The offense had a total of 198 yards of rushing and 170 yards of passing. Cooper Hansen and Jake Fischer led the rushing department with 93 and 83 yards, respectively. QB Hansen was six of 14 pass- ing. Jonah Johnson caught three passes for 49 yards. Fischer had one for 60 yards and Kirk had one for 53 yards while Carter Hansen had one for eight yards. The defense spent plen- ty of time on the field. Westin Kirk led the team in tackles with 18. Jonah Johnson, in his first game back after three absences, had 17 stops. Jon Luc- ero had 12 tackles plus two fumble recoveries. The Hansens, Cooper and Carter, along with Fischer, had eight stops each. Kyle Fischer, Evan Swanson and Zach Reese each were in on seven stops. Cameron Nelson had four big stops late in the game. The RTR record now goes to 5-2. They are go- ing to have a home playoff game on the 24th of Octo- ber. That game will start at 7 p.m. The opponent has not been determined at this time. For the read- ers who get the newspa- per on Wednesday and might read my articles, the Knights play this Wednes- day against Hills Beaver Creek in their last regular season game. This home game will be crucial as the seedings come out later in the week. Let's really get behind the Knights as they work to go up in the seeding process with a big win!
