Tyson Schrock, along with Jesse Ben- der, Patrick Fisher and Ryan Bontrager, limited the chances Trinity had, while midfielders, Daniel Moya, Caleb Detweiler, Jacob Geyer and Joe Hochstetler, helped to generate chances out of the midfield. IMS was unable to convert those chances to scores, however, and were handed a post-season loss, and a ticket to the third-place consolation match the following afternoon. IMS 2, Cone Christian 1 IMS stepped onto the field in the consolation game on a beauti- ful, October, Saturday afternoon. With a strong breeze blowing from the south end of the field, IMS chose to go into the wind the first half. Despite heading into the wind it didn't take long for IMS to take control of much of the play as some nice combination passing kept Cone on their heels much of the half. "The key for much of the game was the ability of the guys to come out and play strong and with some emotion," commented coach Marcus Miller. Beating Cone to the majority of the balls helped to establish possession and to limit the opportunities of their speedy forwards to make runs on our goal. Though Aaron Boshart, Tony Hostetler and Thomas Davis cre- ated some nice chances, IMS failed to stick the ball into the net until 26 minutes into the half when Thomas Davis sent a through ball into the box. Going to the ball strongly, Tony Hostetler beat a defender to the ball and poked it into the corner of the net for the 1-0 lead. With the wind blowing, Cone took advantage of a mistake in the middle of the field to get a one on one break at the goal and notched their goal in the closing minutes of the first half. IMS came out strong in the sec- ond half with the wind at their backs. They were able to keep the pressure on the Cone goal, as Cone made it difficult to score, often keeping nine guys back on defense. Midfielders Caleb Detweiler, Ryan Bontrager, Jacob Geyer and Daniel Moya along with defend- ers Tyson Schrock, Jesse Bender and Patrick Fischer helped to deny Cone strong chances, while helping to apply offensive pres- sure. Tony Hostetler helped IMS seal the deal, recording his second goal of the night. This time tak- ing a pass from Craig Shetler and sending it past the goalie. Several other strong shots nearly found their mark, but IMS was unable to record another goal, which might have blown the game wide open. With the win, IMS finishes their season with an overall record of 9-4, and a third-place finish in the inter-conference tournament. Walnut Ridge won the tourna- ment over Holy Trinity 2-1 Ot/Pks. The score was tied i-1 at the end of regulation. After two five-minute, sudden death, over- time periods, the game moved to the penalty kick phase in which Walnut Ridge won.

It ust three plays zone. The touch- a 37-yard pass to Morgan Kahl kicked the extra point and the score was 7-0 with 9:46 left in the first quarter. The Raiders fumbled the ensu- ing kickoff and it was recovered by Durant-Bennett at the H-LT 20 yard line. However, the Raiders defense stiffened and seemed to survive the turnover, stopping the Wildcats a yard short on 4th and two. However, the respite was short lived. On 3rd down Jake Bell intercepted a pass and ran it back to the Highland-Lone Tree five. Two plays later Kyle Mackie scored from the two. Kahl kicked the extra point and it was 14-0 with 5:52 left in the first period. The Raiders got a drive of their own going after the kickoff, but R stalled at the Wildcat 33. From there Durant-Bennett scored in one play. Kraklio lofted a long pass down the field for Jacob Soy for the 67-yard touchdown play. It looked for a brief moment as if the Raider defender was in posi- tion to intercept the ball or, at least, knock it down, but it sailed just over his fingertips into Soy's waiting arms. Once, again Kahl kicked the extra point and it was 21-0 at the end of the first quarter. The Raiders next possession was again cut short by a pass interception. This one was picked off at midfield and returned to the H-LT 20 giving Durant-Bennett another short route to the end zone. On the third play Ross Peter- son carried the fmal yard for the touchdown, Kahl kicked the point and it was 28-0 with 7:58 left in the half. The Wildcats drove to the Raiders 17 after receiving the sec- ond half kickoff, but got stopped there. After one first down the Raiders were forced to punt and D- B got a good return to the H-LT 32. R took them five plays, the touch. down coming on a Kraklio to Alex Bartenhagen four-yard pass. Kahl's kick made the score 35-0 with 3:02 left in the third quarter. Durant-Bennett put the final points on the board early in the 4th period after a seven ply, 46 yard drive. Soy ran the final six yards for the score and Kahl added the extra point to bring the score to 42-0 with 10:02 left in the game. The Raiders finished the season in 6th place in the district with a 2-5 record, 2-7 overall. Durant- Bennett f'mished in 4th place with a 4-3 record, 5-4 overall.
