Huber Heights Wayne 20 Hilliard Davidson 6

Region 2B Final tonight (I know but I don't care) at Welcome stadium featuring the #1 team in Columbus and the #1 defensive d1 team in the state Hilliard Davidson against The Miami Valley's #1 team and #2 in defense the Wayne Warriors!!!!!

It was cold and it was brutally windy and yes us Wayne fans like to talk about the weather because we have a pass happy team.... Davidson started with the ball and Davidson did what Davidson does and that is drive down field a few yards at a time, move the chains, and take time of the clock. As they closed in on the REDZONE the Wayne defense stiffened and stopped Davidson on a 4th and 2. For the third straight game Wayne's high powered offense went 3 and out on their first possession. Wayne's defense was back on the field but stopped Davidson. Wayne called a timeout with 2 seconds left forcing Davidson to punt into the wind.

The 2nd quarter went back and forth until Wayne finally got it going. They used the run game and drove all the way down to Davidson 2 but great defensive plays pushed the Warriors back. Strong came in and drilled a 30 yard FG. 3-0 Wayne. Davidson though answered quickly and they did it on a special team play as Ross returned the kick 62 yards deep into Wayne's territory but defense is the name of the game tonight as the Warriors stopped Davidson in their tracks forcing them to a long FG attempt. Lefevre came in and drilled the 41 yard FG to tie it at 3. Each team had 1 more possession each that did not mount to much and we are at half tied at 3.

Davidson's defense came out strong to start the 3rd stopping Wayne but Wayne's defense matched that to get the Warriors the ball back. This time Wayne was able to complete some passes and move the chains. It looked like Wayne was finally going to get in the end zone with a 2nd and short on the 4 but a penalty, a bad snap, and great defensive play force the Warriors into another FG attempt. Strong drilled the 25 yarder to put Wayne up 6-3.

With the Wayne crowd really getting into it screaming Defense the Warriors stopped Davidson cold. The offense once again moved the ball and this time Wayne cashed in on a 21 yard run by McCleskey and it was 13-3 Wayne. With their backs to the wall Davidson needed a drive to stay in the game as we moved into the 4th quarter and that is what they got. 1st and 10 just outside the 10 yard Davidson was poised to strike but Wayne's defense had something else in mind and that was driving Davidson back for losses as they had to settle for a 35 yard FG. 13-6 Wayne.

Wayne was able to get one first down with timing winding down and was facing a 4th and 1. Wayne decided to punt and got a great one by Davis pinning Davidson deep in their own territory. With the run game being stopped now by Wayne, Davidson was forced to throw but that was not going to happen as Wheeler and Tolliver got sacks. Wayne added a late TD on a Pitts 5 yard run to make the final 20-6.

This was a hard fought win for Wayne to set up a Wayne/Colerain state semi final match. Wayne is 0-2 vs Colerain in the playoffs and 1-3 all time vs the CARDS.

Huber Heights Wayne 00 03 10 07 - 20
Hilliard Davidson ____ 00 03 00 03 - 6

Wayne 13-0, Davidson 11-2

STATS:

Total Yards: Wayne 204 Davidson 181
Rushing: Wayne 163 Davidson 181
Passing: Wayne 41 Davidson 0

IND STATS:

Wayne QB DeWeaver 4 for 8 for 41 yards / 12-46 yards rushing

Wayne RB Pitts 8 for 37 1 TD, McCleskey 7 for 55 1 TD, Wilcox 6 for 27
Davidson RB Royer 21 for 62 yards, Snyder 18 for 82 yards, Klein 16 for 37

Wayne WR Smith 2 for 19, Pitts 1 for 9, Wilcox 1 for 13

================================================

This was a defensive game and the wind made it very difficult to pass the ball. Wayne had to go to the ground game and they did enough to get it done. Both defenses played great but Wayne's defense really came out strong in the 2nd half. Davidson dominated the time of possession in the first half but Wayne stopped them cold in the 2nd half.

Thank you Hawk

Congratulations to Wayne on your big playoff win, against a very tough Hilliard Davidson team. I'll be following the Warriors on WSWO the rest of the way in the playoffs, all the way to the state championship!

Also, thank you Hawk, for the nice words you said about me on your broadcast of this game. You all do a great job at WSWO, and are great people to volunteer your time and effort to bring us the Wayne games, and also bringing back great memories with your excellent selection of oldies music you play on your station. Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

I want to mention, that I know a lot of Wayne fans like listening to the WSWO broadcasts, and even listen to them while sitting in the stands at the games. It would be so great for all you who like listening to WSWO, to donate some money to this all volunteer radio station. The people at WSWO do this out of the love of their work and helping the community. It's easy to donate. I donate online, using the paypal account set up on their website. http://daytonoldies.org/
