Senior Night at Boss Hill Stadium was a great way to say goodbye to our Seniors who are involved in fall sports or marching band.  The Red Devils took advantage of a momentum-swinging play on special teams to score 24 unanswered points in the second quarter. Clements had a big fourth-quarter rally but Elkmont was able to hold off the Colts, 45-31 to cap off Senior Night.

With a 7-6 lead, the Red Devils were in a fourth-and-13 situation around the 50 yard line. Eli Hobbs lined up to punt and recognized the chance for a fake.  He almost broke loose for an end zone run but was tackled before he could score.  He gained enough yards for a first down, breathing new life into the Elkmont offense. 

“That just shows the leadership and the football IQ we have on our team. I snapped our punter the ball, he saw the defense leave and he took off. That was his call all the way. We knew we needed a big play, and number 4 came through and gave it to us,” said Elkmont senior defense end Travis Riggs, who had an interception, a fumble recovery and four tackles.

Two plays after the successful fake punt, Elkmont quarterback Jordan Nelson, who opened the scoring with a 1-yard sneak in the first quarter and picked off a pass on defense, found Patrick Jobman for a 14-yard touchdown to put Elkmont ahead, 14-6. 

Hobbs, one of 13 seniors for Elkmont, made key plays in all three phases of the game at running back, linebacker and punter. He recovered a Clements fumble off a botched snap, totaled a team-high nine tackles and rushed 14 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns. His scoring runs of 10 and 16 yards on back-to-back drives in the second quarter helped Elkmont build a 31-12 halftime advantage.
Elkmont senior placekicker Daniel Sanchez nailed a 33-yard field goal in the second quarter and made a PAT.

The Red Devils never trailed and had only one turnover.  They continued to score points.  Elkmont sophomore Daniel Valencia went 5-of-5 on PATs.

“Knowing this was the last football game together, we knew we had to go out big. We didn’t move the ball as well as we liked, but we were able to come up with the muffed kickoff, the fumbled punt and the interceptions,” Riggs said.

Decatur Daily

Boss Hill Stadium, Elkmont
Preview: The loser will finish last in 4A Region 8. It’s a position East Lawrence is familiar with. The school is now in its 18th consecutive losing season. Finishing last is not as familiar to Elkmont. This will be just the third losing season in the past eight years for the Red Devils, which are trying to avoid their first winless season since 1989.
News Courier Prediction: Elkmont 27, East Lawrence 25

Rogers 51, Elkmont 7: With just under two minutes left in the second quarter, Elkmont (0-8, 0-6) had gained some life after scoring a touchdown and forcing a three-and-out. Elkmont was vying for another quick score before the break but a Rogers defender jumped in front of a Red Devils’ pass to get the interception.
Rogers scored midway through the first quarter when an Elkmont bad snap on a punt resulted in a safety. The Pirates took advantage of the short field on the next possession by punching it in with a 1-yard touchdown run by Cade Serment, for a 9-0 lead with 1:47 left in the first quarter. The Pirates added another touchdown with a 12-yard run with eight minutes left in the second quarter.  Elkmont then put together what proved to be the only successful drive all night when Jordan Nelson connected with Noah Sharp for a 3-yard touchdown pass.

Talbot Rueppel cashed the turnover in for Rogers (5-3, 3-3) with a 2-yard touchdown run. It gave Rogers a 23-7 halftime lead and effectively ended Elkmont’s upset chance. “That interception was the turning point of the ball game,” Rogers coach Randal Martin said. Elkmont was unable to get close to the end zone the rest of the night.

The Elkmont Red Devils will be traveling to Rogers High School for tonight's game @ 7 pm.  It takes at least an hour to get there.  Elkmont has been selected to be yet another homecoming opponent this year. This will make the game longer than normal so plan accordingly. It may be eleven before you get home.



It's going to be a hot chocolate/coffee game. A cold front will move through later today. Not much moisture for it to work with so little chance of rain, just clouds. Highs Friday will be in the mid 70s, but strong cold air will moving in by game time. If you don't like cool nights, be sure to dress warm, take gloves and a blanket.

Kickoff - 60 degrees and dropping
   9 pm - low 50s

Elkmont (0-7, 0-5) at Rogers (4-3, 2-3)
The skinny: Back-to-back losses have relegated Rogers to the sixth spot in Class 4A, Region 8, but all is not lost. The Pirates must win their two remaining region games, including next week’s against Deshler, and get some help from the outside to keep hopes alive and break a three-year postseason absence… Elkmont has managed just 13.1 points per game in 2015, 55th among 60 4A schools. Defensively, The Red Devils allow 39.9 points per game. Rogers is 12-5 all-time against Elkmont, but lost 27-10 in 2014.
