Two Named For Player Of The Week
The Lumberjacks’ Peyton Bassett and the Hundred Hornets’ Danny Stewart are this week’s players of the week for the Wetzel Chronicle.
Bassett caught eight passes from Tyler Kocher for 121 yards and a touchdown, while tacking on another touchdown on a pick-six from 20-yards in the double-overtime 28-22 loss to Frontier.
Stewart, who has been the Hornets quarterback for most of the season before injuring his throwing arm, played wide-receiver this week against Hancock Maryland. He caught three passes for 74 yards, while leading the Hornets with 42 yards rushing on four carries and scoring twice, including a 74-yard kick-off return.
Special Mention goes to the Paden City Wildcats’ Jenna Ferrebee rifled home an ace for the game-winner in the second set, and a crushing kill for the game-winner in the third set, while serving up 12 points and blocking three shots in helping Paden City advance to the OVAC Class-A Championship match with a three-set sweep over Bishop Donahue in the OVAC Semi-final.
Also receiving Special Mention was the Lumberjacks’ Travis Leek. He made 20 tackles, one interception and high-jacked a Cougar pass.
Placing Honorable Mention was the Lady Eagles’ goalie Logan Riggs. She recorded 12 saves in the 1-0 victory of the season over Tyler Consolidated. It was the Eagles’ only win of the season.
Also joining her is the Lumberjacks’ Tyler Kocher who threw for 208 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Lumberjacks 28-22 loss to Frontier.
