The rematch: Pioneer hosts Winamac for regional championship game

(Continued)

“He was a little rusty and nervous to start with,” Roth said. “Once he settled down and got a couple licks in he handled it very well. He was rusty to begin with with the fumble there. He did more than what we asked him to do and played more on defense than he probably should have. He’s a gifted athlete and a difference maker and we need him on the field whenever and wherever we can get him there.”

Fox had 155 yards rushing and 2 TDs and 158 yards passing and 2 TDs in the Warriors’ 34-8 win over Pioneer in Week 2.

“Them having Fox back changes the dynamics on the defensive side,” Johnson said. “We’re going to have to be focused on certainly him and 32 [Tyler Katschke]. We’re going to have to somehow find a way to contain Fox and slow down 32 to have any kind of success. We can’t allow big plays. That’s in any ballgame, if you allow big plays you’re going to be in trouble.”

Fullback Katschke has rushed for 1,877 yards and 30 TDs to lead the Warriors.

Fullback Justin Mersch has rushed for 1,778 yards and 26 TDs to lead the Panthers. Quarterback Sam Kiser has rushed for 1,067 yards and 21 TDs.

Winamac’s Week 2 win over the Panthers ended their 47-game Midwest Conference winning streak. It’s just the Panthers’ second loss in the last 86 league games.

“Certainly if we’re going to be successful we’re going to have to change some things around from what happened in that first game,” Pioneer coach Mike Johnson said.

Winamac’s win in Week 2 was at Roudebush Stadium.

“It’s going to be a big challenge. We haven’t won there since 2000,” Roth said. “They’re on a 10-game winning streak and haven’t been beat since we beat them in Week 2 which seems like a year ago.
