Red Devils turn back Berries for NCC title

RICHMOND — Logansport’s football team lost to Richmond 28-14 on Friday night.

The Red Devils (7-2, 5-1 North Central Conference) secured their second straight NCC title outright with the win.The Berries (3-6, 2-4) finished tied for fifth place with Anderson.They hurt themselves against Richmond with five turners — four fumbles and an interception.“It was a frustrating loss because on the defensive side of the ball we played well enough in the second half to keep us in the game,” LHS coach Brad Urban said. “Five turnovers, you’re not going to beat a team that good at their place.“We had two big turnovers, one in the third quarter when we were gaining momentum. We were within 21-14 and forced a punt and they had a bad punt. We had it on their 36 or 37 and fumbled the mesh on a handoff. With two minutes to play Jacob Brown got a pick for us on defense but we again fumbled on the mesh and they picked it up for a touchdown to put it away.”Nate Trawick recovered a fumble and rumbled in from 1-yard out to give RHS a two-touchdown advantage with 2:09 remaining.Jordan Christian threw three touchdown passes – two to Matt Morrow and another to Tyler Ripperger – and Dakota Pennington booted a 30-yard field goal.Richmond struck first Friday, when Christian connected with Morrow on fourth down for a 20-yard touchdown with 9:54 left in the opening quarter.Christian had another fourth-down conversion for a touchdown a quarter later. This time, the sophomore quarterback found Tyler Ripperger for a 36-yard score.That catch was one of a game-high 10 for Ripperger, who finished with 111 yards receiving. Justin Holland led Richmond’s running game with 128 yards on 15 carries.Brendan Hegg added 70 yards receiving, with Morrow finishing with 64. Christian threw for 245 yards.He also found Morrow for touchdown No. 2 for the duo late in the first half. Christian’s pass was tipped in the end zone, but Morrow snatched it anyway, and the senior held on to the ball as he fell to the turf.Pennington’s field goal as time expired sent the Red Devils into halftime leading 21-7.“We played a nice game,” said RHS coach Matt Holeva. “When things got a little bit tight, we kept our composure and were able to get it done.”Logansport applied pressure in the second half.Isaac Eastburn scored on a 22-yard run late in the third quarter to make it a one-possession game, and the Berries did enough to keep Richmond’s offense at bay.But, Logansport also had to start a drive on its own 3-yard line late in the fourth quarter, which led Trawick’s game-clinching touchdown.Richmond’s Andrew Rice seized an opportunity on the ensuing drive, grabbing an interception that let the Red Devils run out the remaining 2 minutes.All that was left was the postgame celebration – and for Holeva to ring the Victory Bell as he left Lyboult’s field.“I’m real proud of the group,” Holeva said. “We’ll enjoy it. As always, it will be short lived. We’ll enjoy it tonight, and at the banquet and later on in the season, but starting (today), it’s all getting ready for sectional play and Anderson.”Eastburn also scored on a 35-yard pass from Ryan Schrock in the first half.“Logansport came and played a heck of a ball game,” Holeva said. “They are getting better every week, and coach (Brad) Urban is doing a great job with that bunch, and they played hard.”Michael Leonard led Logansport’s defense with seven solo tackles, seven assists, two tackles for a loss and an interception. Brown and Caleb McLochlin each had an interception. Kevin Gonzalez added two tackles for a loss and a sack.
