Can Dexter hang with PHC? Are there any injuries that might effect either team? Should it even be close?
Dexter's going to have to play a lot better than they have the last two weeks to even keep it close. Our leading rusher, Caleb Hoggard, left the Kennett game with an injury. I don't know his status for Friday night.
No, doesn't matter, no!!
Don't think they can. Bearcats have to force some turnovers and take advantage of them to keep it to a 21 point ballgame.
Won't even be a contest. PHC by 21+
PHC is the clear favorite, but anything can happen!
This game will be closer than you think.
Let's hope Dexter has a good game and does well. I'm not sure they have the chops to knock off Park Hills though.
Would love to see Dexter win but don't see it happening.
The Rebels are up 29-8 with 49 seconds to go in the half
Dexter has a nice team. Way improved from last year. But PHC is pretty good. Rebels up 29-8 at half. And get ball after half. That improved Dexter D struggling to slow down the Rebels.
at no point was it even close. period.
Dexter self-destructed in the first half. Otherwise, they could have made it a game.
Dexter is a very respectable football team. There is absolutely no doubt about it.
Taxpayer your kidding right? If they wouldn't have left their starters in the whole fourth quarter when phc played all their jv it would of been a running clock. Phc was on Dexter's 15 when they took the starters out, score there and the clock is running. Not one play did Dexter play any subs. Even an inside kick. Heck I thought they were going to call a timeout when phc jv qb took a knee.
Dexter would have the same amount of wins as last couple of years if it was not for the puffs at start of the year . GREAT bunch of young men ! Butt only big win this year was Sikeston and as season winds down the were avg. at best . Dexter is a great school with great kids who will do great in life !
Like I said, they self-destructed.
Like the ole days of Coach W. at Perryville. Down 40-7 at half, other team takes their starters out near the end of the 3rd, Perryville starts throwing deep routes and onside kicking it. Loses 40-28 and says they were in it until the end. Ughhh.
If they onside kicked in the last 2 minutes after scoring on the JV as you said, that is is just embarrassing for the entire town of Dexter. I hope that didn't happen.
Let's not beat Dexter up Flat River fans, remember the old fake kneel at the end of the game vs SG a few years back.
No, but I remember SG running a fake punt, up 35 in the 4th quarter with Schwent.....I know, I know, that never happened.
Good game, good game....nope just kidding, were passing!!!
Lets tell the truth, Dexter's offense isnt the most imaginative attack we have ever seen. Park Hills probably got bored defending a team with a tackle playing tight end.
I would love to know the background on the fake punt and fake kneels
Lots of Uncle Ricos with grudges
I don't recall the exact year, but Park Hills, after 20 years of trying to break through vs Ste Genevieve got over the hump. With the clock ticking down and already a TD lead the Rebels told the refs they were taking a knee. The refs subsequently warned the Dragons to back off defensively because they were going to kneel. The Rebs faked a knee and broke one for a TD as SG stood in shock. This gave Central a 13+ point differential for their district standings at that time and also set off an unpleasant interaction between Coach Schweiss and his brother who was on the SG staff at that time.
Frankly, quick thinking refs should have thrown a flag and made up a penalty like holding on the play. It was total BS.
Hence a quick sneak now referred to as "rebel" in the Greater Mineral Area
Yep, JoJo, I was at that game. Still rubs a lot of people the wrong way in the old football district. Not just Dragon fans.
There's the orange van drivers still waitin for coach to put em in the big game
Jojo if your going to tell the story at least tell it right. You don't notify the refs your taking a knee! And St gen definitely didn't back up the defense. Yes it happened and sure it rubbed a lot the wrong way. It rubbed park hills the wrong way with schwents fake punt. Not everyone made the playoffs then and 13 points was the max difference and that's what it gave the rebels. Watch college football today teams getting beat by 50-60 points to impress the polls. Central took enough butt kickings also by very good st gen teams. Nature of the game. But to say any referee crew would pull the defense back for victory formation is false and didn't happen. And okachaw they absolutely on side kicked after scoring on the jv. It's on kfmo sports on you tube u can watch it.
Referees always notify the opposing team if the offense tells them they are taking knee. Have you ever watched the very end of a blowout? Maybe not, you probably left.
Its water under the bridge and Central has done a miraculous job with their program. They certainly deserved to win that night.
Having said that, allow me to amemd my story. After the game in the locker room a SG player said "The ref told us they were taking a knee".
Not only did I not leave I have played in those games and it never happened. They may say it but u don't have to pull back. I've also had them hit the line trying one last time to cause a fumble. JoJo that was in no way a slight to u I also follow the raiders close and have a rooting interest in those kids they have done great and I'm very happy to see it.
I may be many years his senior, but I look upon one of the central coaches as my mentor. I owe him a ton.
I will say this Most PHC fans had a problem with the call as Well! Good Program, they proved me wrong!
I was at the game and seen the play and will never forget it. The following Monday went and watched SG and PHC jv play and a SG coached stopped and talked to me and I asked him what the heck the last play was all about so he explained it to me. Lost a lot of respect for Kory after coach told me the story.
One move/mistake doesnt tarnish all the good he, PJ, and the rest of their staff have done for a decade now. But it was a shocking finish to a game.
