W- Nance to Dunn 22 pass (Reichenberger kick) Scoring: Second quarer By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Perhaps, Wellington can just switch all its home games to Goddard Stadium. The Crusaders seem to play their best football there.Wellington buried the Goddard Eisenhower Tigers 34-0 Friday in a score that may have even surprised the WHS coaches. The Crusaders at 2-0 are playing with swag.The big victory was tempered by an injury to premiere running back Austin Dunn, who left the field in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. Nobody knows the extent of Dunn’s injury, only that he is scheduled for a medical exam sometime Monday.The loss of Dunn will be a huge blow for the Crusaders, if he is unable to return. He is the go-to rusher to Wellington’s multi-dimensional offense that has kept the first two opponents on their heals.Other than the Dunn injury, it was Wellington’s night. Ike’s claim to fame came in its first possession when it made three first downs to get into Wellington territory and travel to the 30. Stunningly, the Tigers would never get that deep for the rest of the ballgame until the very final seconds.The rest of the cold September night was a Wellington Broadway Musical. When the Crusaders needed a first down, they got it with plenty of theatrics. Every fourth down was made including one at their own 10 yard line. And despite a stiff northern breeze, Wellington scored the bulk of its touchdown going against the wind.After Wellington took over on downs at their own 30, Wellington spent little time getting into enemy territory, only to get themselves back out with a 11-yard rushing loss and ill-fated screen play.But on third-and-28, Wellington served out a Trevor Nance to Colin Reichenberger pass play good for 52 yards to get to the Ike 19. Dunn, a few plays later, would score on a 3-yard touchdown plunge to give the Crusaders a 7-0 lead with 3:49 in the first quarter.Wellington took advantage of one of two miserable Tiger punts to start the next possession at the enemy’s 35. The Crusaders drove inside the 10, but had to go for it on fourth down on a 2-yard touchdown roll-out throw from Nance-to-Reichenberger.Interesting stat: Wellington made three of its five touchdowns on fourth down.Leading 14-0, Wellington’s most impressive drive came in the second quarter. Against the headwind, Wellington would piece together an 11-play behemoth drive that included a fourth down attempt on the 10 — not the Goddard Eisenhower 10 mind you, the Wellington 10.At 4th and 1, Ryan decided to go for it with the players backs just 10 yards from the Ike end zone.“I always thought we could get six inches when we needed it,” Ryan said. “And it was a play their coaches would not have expected. They were screaming ‘watch the ball, watch the ball’ (expecting to punt). When they are doing that they aren’t firing off… It was probably a stupid call, but I went with it. And it worked out.”After Nance’s sneak for first down, Wellington would not relinquish the ball again until late in the half. The drive was buoyed by a great 25-yard catch by Connor Phelps in double coverage.Then later on fourth-and-11, Dunn caught a screen pass and scrambled 23 yards for a touchdown, giving the Crusaders a 21-0 lead.The third quarter was scoreless with Wellington seemingly in control. A fumble thwarted a drive deep into enemy territory.Wellington was at midfield on a fourth and 5 when the game’s screwiest play of the night occurred. Nance threw the ball to the flat to Brenton Troutman, who either fumbled it or pitched it to Phelps who then rambled untouched down the sidelines for a 47-yard touchdown reception. With the PAT, Wellington led 27-0.The Crusaders were back in enemy territory again when a lengthy screen pass to Dunn led to his injury on the Crusader sidelines.Running backs Lane Beard and Jaden Hines would mobile Wellington down for its final touchdown — a 1-yard Nance quarterback keeper.Wellington will travel to Circle for game #3. Stats will be available when we receive them. W-Nance to Troutman to Phelps 47 pass (Reichenberger PAT block) G. Eisenhower00000last_img
