LICKING COUNTY FAN is on a distinguished road
Article Newark Catholic over comes five turnovers to beat lakewood,30-10

Last night in Newark at White Field the Lakewood Lancers entered their game undefeated (4-0) and had high hopes of getting win number five. They knew that Newark Catholic(3-1) had just been pounded by Licking Heights the week before and showing them, that the Green Wave could be beat. And knowing they could have beaten Newark Catholic in 2014 and 2015 if they could have closed things out.

The Lancers defense made an early statement with 9:52 left in the opening quarter, when Nathan Stepp sacked Hunter Chapman for a seven-yard loss.Chapman would recover nicely when he connected with Kyle Gibson for a twenty-yard gain, to pick up a first down, with 9:00 left in the quarter. The Green Wave would get on the scoreboard at the8:18 mark of the quarter, when Kyle(Four Star) Gibson gutted the Lancers defense with a nine-yard run. The point after by Nate Liesen gave Newark Catholic a,7-0 lead.

With a little under 4:00 left on the clock the Lancers faced a fourth and one on the Green Wave 34-yard line and they decided to go for it and that decision was made good, when Chase Shaffer used some nice blocking by the big guys up front to pick up three-yards. The clock read 2:21 when Scott Painter showed some nice touch, when he connected with Alex Poling for a twenty-one-yard gain. The Lancers had put together a really nice drive and the Newark Catholic defense looked as if they were a little bewildered and maybe a little doubtful of their ability. But that turned out not to be the case because with :35 left in the quarter Connor Sheehan sacked Painter, for a six-yard loss. The Lancers hit a thirty-two-yard field goal by, John Hoffman to make this a,7-3 game, with 10.4 left.

The Newark Catholic scoring drive totaled sixty-five-yards and lasted for nine plays, while the Lancers drive went for sixteen plays, sixty-five-yards. Including the field goal the Lancers totaled eighty-yards. Both teams had shown the other a little something, giving each hopes of a big night.

The Lancers defense would again step up in a huge way, with 9:27 left on the clock, when Tristan Warthman made a Deon Sanders like interception on a Hunter (Man Of Steel) Chapman pass.

Lakewood would get a thirty-two-yard pick up, when Painter connected with Brett Sjoquist, who was wide opened. The at the 7:00 mark it would be the Green Wave defense, making a nice play, when Noah Fodor teamed up with Jacob Lumbatis to stuff Painter for no gain and forcing the Lancers to punt, on fourth and one. This was a big time stop at this point of the game.

Chapman would throw a short pass to Tanner(General Prime Time) Lake, who used some nice field vision to pick up a much needed fifteen-yards, at the 5:15 mark of the quarter. The play showed some nice downfield blocking by the Newark Catholic offensive unit. At the 4:12 mark of the quarter, Chapman threw another nice short pass to Lewis, who on his way to the sixty-three-yard score, broke several tackles, threw a player off of him, much like he was batting a Mosquito away. The point after kick was good, making this a,14-3 Green Wave lead.

With 3:19 left in the half the Lancers were in need of a big play at Painter looked to have delivered with just that, when he broke free for a large run, but as he was hit, he coughed up the ball and making the recovery for the Green Wave was Nate Liesen.

The turnover fest would continue throughout this game and it would hurt the Lancers a little more then it did the Green Wave. I do not think either coach could be happy with all of the turnovers in this one, but then again, both of these fine coaches have forgotten more about football than I ever though I knew, so maybe I am incorrect on the turnover fest.

Chapman would be picked off again, this time with 2:36 left in the half. Making the pick for Lakewood was,Cameron Downs. Downs is a fine ball player, who uses speed and football smarts to go with his 5-11, 165 pound frame.

The Lancers offense failed to capitalize on the pick as the Newark Catholic buckled down, forcing a field goal attempt by John Hoffman from twenty-six yard that just missed.

Newark Catholic would end the half, with two nice runs by Man Of Steel, both total ten-yards and a sixteen-yard field goal by,Liesen to make this a,17-3 game at the half.

The third quarter, clock read 11:52, when Chapman picked up fifteen-yards again using his feet and some sweet field vision on the way. He also had a some nice work by his line to aid in the gain. Chapman would then connect with Gibson, who overpowered a couple of Lancers at the goal line to score. The touchdown pass total twenty-nine-yards. The point after kick increased the Green Wave lead to,24-3. This drive totaled eleven plays and eighty-yards.

Lakewood of old might have quit and took their beating like so many Lancers teams has in the past, but this Lancer team coached by Craig Conley has no quit in them. Conley has slowly turned things around at Lakewood and for those who have followed this program should find the coach and shake his hand and thank him.

With 5:45 left in the quarter the Lancers had used six plays to work the ball down to the Green Wave one-yard-line. From there on play number seven,Chase Shaffer plowed in for a huge Lakewood score. The point after kick made this a,24-10 game.

Gibson looked to have scored on a fine eighty-yard run, but a very, very late flag was thrown and holding on Newark Catholic denied Gibson the eighty-yards and the score. Chapman would connect with Lake, for a gain of twenty-eighty yards, with 5:20 left in the third. But at the 4:28 mark Gibson coughed up the ball and the Lancers Alex Poling came away with it. As I said this was a turnover fest.

Painter dropped back and threw a pass downfield that was picked off by Nolan Jurden.
Jurden made a nice read on the pass and made the pick look as easy as NFL all time picks leader Paul Krause did back in the day.

Chapman would hit Mason(Quiet Storm) Peddicord for a big twenty-seven-yard gain, with 2:50 left on the clock. Chapman would again connected with Quiet Storm at the 2:12 mark, this time for seventeen-yards. The drive hit a brick wall when Gibson coughed the ball up again and the Lancers came out of the pile with the ball.

With 10:57 left in the game, while facing a third and ten from their own five the Lancers got a big fifteen-yard run by Painter. Again this Lancers team refused to quit, even with the game out of reach. With 9:27 left it would be the Lancers turning the ball over. This time Painter put the ball on the ground and it appeared Connor Sheehan was the Green Wave player who came up with it.

Facing a fourth and two the Green Wave shocked a few people when they opted for a twenty-six-yard field goal attempt that was no where close to being successful and allowing the Lancers to get another crack at making this a closer game, with 7:34 left.

Facing 2nd and thirty-three Lakewood got a big twenty-one-yard run by Painter, to bring up a third and eleven, with 6:10 left.
With 5:51 left Painter was sacked by Nick Gialdini and Sheehan, for a four-yard loss.

Newark Catholic had the ball with 3:56 left and Chapman used some nice blocking and a John Riggins type move to pick up forty-nine-yards.Three seconds later Cameron Lewis walk into the end zone,with some nice work by his line. The point after was missed leaving this a,30-10 Newark Catholic lead.

Newark Catholic had the second unit in and with 2:57 left in this one a bad exchange on a running play caused Lucas Pierce to fumble the ball and the Lancers came away with it. This turnover fest refused to go away.

The final turnover came with 2:49 left, when Painter was picked off by Lake. Lake, who in my opinion is the best all around payer for the Green Wave. He seems to very silently come up huge a lot for the Green Wave on both offense and defense, and on special teams.

With 2:41 left Newark Catholic would get a nice twenty-one-yard run from,Jim Lally.
