BSN Sunday Edition for 10/20/13

The full story of the Bears victory over SSSA, a couple of interesting Bear Trax, Bear Opponents and Bear Trax for the boys on College Football teams

Landon Football 41 SSSA 21

 

It was bizarre—SSSA’s homecoming and their Fall Fair, the Saints are huge (282,265{2}, 230,225) (mostly underclassmen), Landon had 10 players (mostly former starters) on the sidelines (only 1 of 6 senior captains was in uniform) and the first two offensive series of both teams seemed to indicate that the defenses could not stop their opponents.

The Bears then took control of the game and beat their 1st IAC opponent 41-21. On average, every time a Bear runner (all 4 of them) touched the ball, it was advanced 6 yards. The pass attack (Rob Adkins) was a perfect 5 for 5, 40% of those tosses were for scores (Tommy Crittenberger). The defense, at key moments, stopped the SSSA offense and created 3 turnovers via interceptions.

The home team kicker put the initial kickoff into the end zone. Eight yards and 11 plays constituted the initial TD strike. Nine runs (Jamal François, Rob, Colton Rupp and Julius Kindfuller) were followed by one pass (Rob to Keith Simms) which was a touchdown, but no the 1st of 14 penalties (a holding call) was signaled after the Bears celebrated. NO TD; so on 3rd and 13, Coach Bordley called for Colton on a draw and 23 yards later, the Bears took the lead. Jacob Howard converted on a PAT @ 7:28 BEARS 7 SAINTS 0.

 #4TD

The home team took over on its own 35 yard line and largely on the back of a 6’2”, 215# running back moved down the field for a TD @ 4:17 BEARS 7 SAINTS 7

 

Once again starting out at their own 20, the Bears ran nine consecutive times, Messrs. Rupp (6 carries), Dominique Seagears, François and Adkins ran the wing T’s set of precisely designed plays and benefitted from the equally exactly executed blocks of the O line (all juniors and sophomores—Tom Evans, Ian Dabney, Peter Millsbaugh, John Slowinski, Steven Gee, Keith Simms and Tommy Crittenberger) against a Saints D line that was larger at every position. The Bears’ complex blocking schemes attacked the Saints’ middle and as the home team tried to block the interior, the Landon O would move to the ends of the line. blocking

The final yard was covered by QB Rob Adkins for a TD @ 0:32.5; the PAT was unsuccessful—BEARS 13 SAINTS 7

 

The home team started its 2nd drive 54 yards from the goal line and moved quickly to the Landon 24 where the Saints QB made the acquaintance of Greg Avedisian for a 4 yard loss. On 4th down, the Bear defense covered the SSSA receivers and forced the home QB to intentionally ground the ball.

Landon had its 1st possession of the 2nd Q on the Saints’ 49. Three runs, a pass, two more runs and a QB sack meant that the Bears had to punt. The SSSA offense was ineffective against the Landon D; so the visitors got the ball—the next three series defined the outcome of the game.

Landon took over on the Saints 24 and 5 plays later scored on a Colton Rupp 9 yard run and Rob Adkins took the ball as the kick holder on a PAT attempt, but immediately got up and earned 2 points @ 1:24  to make it BEARS 21- SAINTS 7

 

The home team took the ball at its own 35 and the first play was a pass which Bear LB Paul Padalino intercepted. His offensive teammates rushed out onto the field with the intent of scoring before the half and they fulfilled that goal on the first play a 32 yard touchdown pass from Rob Adkins to TE Tommy Crittenberger. A successful PAT by Jacob Howard @ 1:15 made it BEARS 28 SAINTS 7

 

SSSA had a minute to cover 78 yards and they unleashed a passing attack utilizing its 6’6”, 6’2” and 6’1” receivers to move the ball to the Bears’ 16, but the Bears’ tenacity emerged to force three consecutive incomplete passes to move the clock to 0:00

HALFTIME BEARS 28 SAINTS 0

The home team returned to the field with more energy and enthusiasm. They drove 61 yards mostly on runs. Close to their goal line, the Saints were forced to incomplete a pass, a QB sack by Brian Price and a fake field goal which failed.

Landon’s 1st possession of the 2nd half was 95 yards from a touchdown—3 Rupp and 2 François runs moved the ball smartly, but the pièce de la résistance was an Adkins to Crittenberger 49 yard aerial strike for a TD. The PAT was unsuccessful to make it BEARS 34 SAINTS 7 @ 3:08 in the 3rd Q,

The home team responded by driving 40 yards to no avail, turning the ball over on downs. Landon had a nice drive developing but a freakish fumble bounced into the hands of a Saints LB who sprinted 72 yards for a TD. The SSSA player was pursued by a very swift Landon RB; so it was indeed a very fast run. BEARS 34 SAINTS 14 @ 9:51

 

An onside kick was successful and two downs later, the home team scored again BEARS 34 SAINTS 21 @ 9:29

 

Landon moved the ball into its end of the filed, but had to punt. The Saints took the field with the expectation that their recent successes would repeat; their dreams were extinguished by Bear DB Dominique Seagears who perfectly read and timed the SSSA QB’s pass for an interception in a stride as though he was the receiver. Landon had the ball for four plays and scored on Colton’s third TD @5:25 with a Howard PAT to make it BEARS 41 SAINTS 21.

The Saints were eager to narrow the margin but once again were frustrated by a Brandon Johnson interception with about 2 minutes remaining.

Landon tried to run out the clock, but had to punt. The SSSA took over, but after four downs, Landon once again gained possession and this time, the Bears were able to get the clock to 0:00.

Bear Trax

From Inside Lacrosse’s evaluating of future incoming classes, commenting on UVa’s recruits “Landon‘s Sam Offutt is one of the top face-off men in the class with a burgeoning offensive repertoire.”

From TopLacrosseRecruits.com ‘s Report on the Paul Rabil-Mark Millon Project 9.9 at St. Paul’s School (MD). “Landon School (MD) 2015 attackman Colton Rupp was named MVP of the Showcase Game on Monday. ‘I think I was taught little things that will really help me out going into the 2013/2014 season,” he said. “I also learned a lot about the mental part of the game and how I can practice the things they taught us all through out the year.'”
