Campbell Football Gets ‘Out Cougar-ed’ in Double OT
Cougar’s RB John Houston crosses the goal line with a dramatic tying touchdown on fourth down of the first overtime 7 0 7 0 6 6 26
0 7 0 7 6 0 20
by Marc Ayotte The box score indicates the type of game it
was; a roller coaster affair that saw Campbell continuously fighting back, tying the game on three different occasions. It was however, the failed fourth attempt of matching numbers on the score board in double over-time that led to the heartbreaking 26-20 home loss to the blue and gold Cougars from Kearsarge Regional on Saturday, October 1. The red and black Cougars got off to an auspicious start when Keasarge’s running back Parker Hansen took a toss from quarterback Peter Allen and raced 60 yards for the game’s first TD,
Dylan Andrews (#23) split the other Cougar defense on this 27-yard gain during fourth quarter action against Kearsarge
less than five minutes in. The successful kick gave Kearsarge a 7-0 lead which held up through the first quarter. Deep into the second quarter, Campbell started a drive from their own 46-yard line. A third and seven situation with under 4:00 remaining saw QB Dan Driscoll connect with wide out Jesiah Wade, but short of the first down marker. Coach Marc Prindiville decided to go for it on fourth and two, but a Campbell penalty for delay of game caused him to reconsider as they punted the ball away.
Jared Johnson’s booming
Cougar defensive end #56 Garrett Sahlin’s pursuit forces Kearsarge QB Peter Allen to throw on the run
punt pinned Kearsarge back at their own 15. Two plays later Kearsarge quarterback Allen’s pass was picked-off by Campbell’s John Houston (in his linebacker position) who returned it 25 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown; Tyler Guarino’s kick tied the score at 7 with 1:56 remaining in the half. Kearsarge opened up the second half with possession of the pigskin. Their inability to move the ball was followed by a four and out by Campbell as the score remained 7-7 midway through the third stanza. A strange sequence of events ensued on a play with about four and half minutes left in the third. A couple of yellow hankies lay on the field with the zebras huddling on the field to sort things out. When all was done, CHS was assessed a personal foul for roughing the passer, resulting with a Kearsarge first and ten at the Campbell 45 yard line. The Campbell’s
then added salt to their own wound by picking up a second personal foul which gave Kearsarge another first down at the Campbell 25. After Kearsarge running back Eric Hauck was stopped by defensive back Jesiah Wade for a 5-yard loss, the visiting Cougars were faced with a third and 15 from the Campbell 30. Jacob Jones then took the hand-off and ran to the left side of his offensive line; broke a Campbell attempted tackle and skirted 30 yards down the sideline to the end zone, putting Kearsarge up 14-7, a lead they held through three complete. The comeback Cougars were at it again in the final quarter. After stopping Kearsarge on a fourth and three, Campbell took possession on the opponent’s 48. A short gain by Houston was followed by a 27 yard burst by fullback Dylan Andrews down to the 20-yard line. Facing a third and seven, Houston’s number was called and the punishing Cougar back responded by crashing into the end zone from 17 yards out; after another Guarino kick, the score was again even, 14-14 with 5:57 remaining. Kearsarge was forced to punt on their next possession; the result of a fine effort by defensive end Garrett Sahlin and linebacker Aaron Repole that created a fourth and five with 2:50 remaining in regulation. After receiving the punt on their own 31, Campbell began what they hoped would be a game ending drive. The Cougars, on a 12 yard pick-up from QB Driscoll out of the shot-gun formation and a three yard run by Houston, set up the game winning field goal attempt with seven ticks remaining on the clock. The 36-yard field goal attempt off the foot of junior Tyler Guarino was blocked, forcing over time. In high school football, the overtime format is similar to college football in that each team is given a possession starting at the 20-yard line. They are given four downs to score (either
a field goal or touchdown). Whichever team is ahead after each team has had an opportunity to score, gains the ‘W.’ Kearsarge scored on their first possession when quarterback Peter Allen snuck into the end zone, making the score 20-14. However, their failure to convert on the 2-point conversion left the door open for Campbell. But first, Prindiville’s team had to score on their first and goal scenario from the 10. Houston to the six. Andrews to the four. Houston to the 1. On fourth and game, Houston got the call again, diving across the goal line, knotting the score at 20-20. Guarino trotted onto the field with an opportunity to win the game with the PAT, but his kick sailed wide and the two teams headed to a second overtime.
Campbell began the second OT with possession of the ball. They failed to score when QB Driscoll was sacked on fourth down and goal from the six. Flipping over to the other side of the line of scrimmage, Campbell now had to keep Kearsarge off the board in order to force a third overtime. Jacob Jones had different plans. The Kearsarge running back, who finished with a game high 93 yards rushing, cast a silence over the Campbell faithful as he rushed in from 2 yards out to give the blue and gold the sudden victory. On the game, Kearsarge amassed 256 yards rushing to only 106 for the hometown Cougars. Leading the way on the ground for Campbell was John Houston, rushing for 61 yards on 17 carries while scoring all three of his team’s touchdowns. Dylan Andrews carried the ball nine times for 48 yards. Jesiah Wade pitched in with 25 yards on four touches. Defensively, Aaron Repole and Dan Simard registered sacks for CHS. With the loss, Campbell’s three game win streak came to a disheartening end. The Cougars now stand at 3-2 on the season. The Cougars will travel to Bow to take on the Falcons on Saturday, October 8.
Taylor Martin: First Female Racer to win Bandolero Championship
Last year Taylor Martin, at only 13 years old, became the youngest and first ever female racer to win a championship competing in the Bandolero series at the Waterford Speedbowl. This year, while still racing in the Bandolero series, Taylor has moved in to the Legend Car series also. Taylor has been racing in both series at various racetracks this season including the NELCAR series when the Legend cars come to New Hampshire Motor Speedway at Loudon. To date, she has raced in 98 races so far this season. Taylor has participated in the Loudon races six times so far this season. Her last two races on the New Hampshire oval saw a seventh and an eighth place finish. Not bad for a 13 year old girl. Three weeks ago Taylor turned 14. She competes every Wednesday night and Saturday’s in the Bandolero and Legend series at the Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford, CT, along with NHMS at Loudon and various other racetracks in the New England area.
This week, Taylor’s performance on the track at New Hampshire Motor Speedway earned her an invitation to race next weekend at Loudon. Only a select few (18) racers are picked to participate in the New England Legend Car NASCAR Cup Weekend Invitational. Taylor is currently the youngest, and only female, licensed in the INEX NELCAR Legend Car Series in the Northeast. Most of her competitors in the Legend series are much older, some even in their 50s. Taylor will be at New Hampshire Motor
Speedway all of next weekend by the main gate in the NELCAR booth where competitors will have some of their cars on display. Her championship Bandolero will also be on display. For more info you may e-mail at
or contact Valerie Martin at 235-1113. You may also visit Taylor’s website at TaylorMartinRacing.com
