Panthers’ streak in jeopardy following Warriors’ strong start

Winamac leads 14-0 when play resumes this morning.

WINAMAC — The Pioneer football team’s 47-game Midwest Conference winning streak is still in tact, but it’s in serious jeopardy after Friday night’s action at Winamac.

The Warriors led 14-0 before lightning strikes led to a long delay and eventually the postponement of the game. It will resume at 11 a.m. this morning. There is 11:38 remaining in the third quarter and Pioneer has possession of the ball.

The Class A No. 8 Panthers had a good enough start when they recovered their own short kickoff in the middle of the field to start the game. But they went four-and-out and the No. 3 Warriors got the ball back.

On their second play from scrimmage, quarterback Parker Fox took the ball to the house from 69 yards on a bootleg sweep to the left.

After holding the Panthers to a three-and-out, the Warriors faced a third-and-long situation. Fox hit Tyler Katschke in the right flat and Katschke did the rest of the work, taking it all the way to paydirt for a 56-yard TD reception. And just like that, the Warriors had a 14-0 lead just 5:30 into the contest.

It could have been worse for the Panthers, but they had a goal-line stand early in the second quarter, stopping Katschke two yards short on a fourth-down play. Winamac all-state kicker Zach Markley later missed a 31-yard field goal attempt that was just wide right.

The story of the half was big plays by the Warriors, who are looking for their first win over the Panthers since 2001. Fox has 86 of the Warriors’ 123 yards rushing and is 3 of 5 passing for 94 yards.

Pioneer was held to 46 yards rushing on 23 carries when the game was postponed. The Panthers have four first downs to the Warriors’ five thus far in the contest.

Pioneer quarterback Sam Kiser left the game at the end of the first half after a hit by Katschke but was back under center when play resumed in the second half. The Panthers will face second-and-long following a holding penalty when play resumes today.
