  Sports Wrap Up

This past Saturday saw another great conference contest between Weevil State’s Fightin’ Weevils and the Peccaries of Central Northside Community College, as CNCC went down to defeat 2-0 in a titanic defensive struggle.

Coach Bull Winston noted that the Peccaries have been improving all year, and certainly showed the Weevils a thing or two in the trenches. “They really showed us a thing or two,” said Coach.

Offensive Coordinator Red Winston said that he has been working the boys hard all week in ball handling. “Turnovers hurt us bad,” he said. But he did not blame the offense for the lack of power, “Like Coach Bryant always said, when we win, it’s the players; and when we lose, it’s my fault.” He also noted, “Me and Sonny [Winston, quarterbacks coach] are going to be real sure and work more with D’Wontavius [Jefferson, sophomore, Building Demolition major] on throwing the ball. We need to throw it.”

Defensive Coordinator Hick Winston fared a bit better in the post-game assessment, although the broken play by the Peccaries that led to the third quarter safety was not something that had been planned. “No, we don’t generally get nothing like that, so it’s not something we really know that much about doing, but I think the boys might have kind of instinct-like known what to do from playing Madden Football.” Coach Nock Winston, calling plays from the press box, said it was interesting to watch, and caused him to spill his coffee.

The Peccaries, held scoreless now for the past 34 quarters in a row did put together 23 drives, but were stymied by turnovers, penalties, and injuries. The safety came late in the third quarter when the Peccaries were threatening on the Weevil 49 yard line, as CNCC quarterback Narm Philocronitus lost his grip on the ball after the snap. The ball was jostled back and forth among several players, including Weevil’s strong safety, number 97, Seabhum Loodernaught. “I touched it right when I got to their 35, and then someone hit me,” he said. Finally, the ball tumbled into the end zone, and with lightning presence of mind, Jeff Florestore, defensive end, tripped on his shoelace and fell on the ball, securing the safety and the win for Weevil State.

Weevil State rises to third place in the Great South USA American South Conference. Next week we will be hosting the Monks of the Minot Jesuit Seminary, Minot, ND.

In other sports, the Lady Weevils won something.
