    Massillon keeps Harding out of end zone

    By MIKE McLAIN Tribune Chronicle

    MASSILLON - Don't try telling Washington High School football coach Tom Stacy that Warren G. Harding's 2-6 record is indicative of its talent level.
    After sweating out a 13-0 victory over Harding before a crowd of approximately 9,000 Friday night at Paul Brown Stadium, Stacy had nothing but praise for the Raiders. Stacy went so far as to call it a tougher win than the Tigers' come-from-behind victory two weeks ago against Cleveland St. Ignatius.

    "We played a good football team," Stacy said.

    Massillon remained undefeated at 8-0.

    The Tigers earned every yard gained and every point scored. The only points in the first half came when Brian Gamble scooped up the ball at the Raiders' 3 after Andrew Bailey blocked a punt by Harding's Dan Herron at the 5:31 mark of the second quarter.

    Without that play, the defensive slugfest went to the Raiders in the first half. Harding held a 71-46 advantage in total yards at intermission.

    As has been the case often this season, Harding wasn't able to finish drives. It added up to another loss in what has been a frustrating season.

    "Where I come from, I've been taught that hard work is rewarding," Harding coach Thom McDaniels said. "Maybe not when you want or the way you want at the time, but hard work is rewarding. I believe they'll be rewarded somehow, some day, and I want them to believe that because it's a value you can embrace."

    The blocked punt came shortly after a 47-yard attempt of a field goal by Massillon's Steve Schott fell short. Harding was pushed back to its 10 on three plays, forcing Herron to set up in the end zone.

    "We had three different protection schemes because they give you three different fronts," McDaniels said.

    "We made the wrong call on the field for the protection. We could have handled the guy off the right edge with the right call."

    Harding had a chance to even the score late in the second period when Chris Rucker intercepted a Bobby Huth pass at the Raiders' 48. Rucker returned the interception 43 yards before being pulled out of bounds by Huth at the Tigers' 9.

    Herron, who rushed for 108 yards on 27 carries, gained a yard on first down and two yards on second down. Herron was then stopped after a three-yard gain after taking a pass from Sidney Glover.

    McDaniels decided to have Alena Westover attempt a 20-yard field goal from the left hash mark instead of going for a touchdown. Westover easily had enough distance on the kick, but the ball hit off the left upright.

    "When it's 7-0 and it's coming as hard as it's coming, you have to come away with something," McDaniels said. "We believe in our kicker. She's a tough person, and she's worked hard enough to have that chance. That seemed like our best chance because yards were hard to come by."

    The second half was a carbon copy of the first 24 minutes as the defenses controlled play. The Tigers marched from their 26 to the Raiders' 3 late in the third period behind the running of Gamble, who led all rushers with 126 yards on 24 carries.

    The Raiders' defense came up big. After ran for two yards Gamble to the 1, Quentin Nicholson was dropped for a two-yard loss. Gamble then got back to the 1, but he was stopped inches short of the goal line on fourth down.

    Massillon took advantage of Gamble's speed on its next possession when he took a short pass over the middle and advanced it to the Raiders' 17 for a gain of 31 yards. Gamble scored from the 8 three plays later to end the scoring.

    Harding moved to the Massillon 9 on its next possession. Jay Provitt was stopped for a loss of 10 yards by Quinten Paulik on a reverse on second down. After a pass from Glover to Herron for a loss of a yard, a Glover pass for Lawrence Coleman fell incomplete at the goal line.

    "This is a great team effort for us," Stacy said. "We played great defense to shut out a team like that. Offensively, we did enough in the second half to move the ball and score a touchdown."

    McDaniels was impressed with what he saw of the Tigers, who are headed to the Division I playoffs.
    "This team plays with so much heart and passion," McDaniels said of Massillon. "We've played talented teams before, and this team has its share of talent. I love the way this team plays. You're supposed to play the game like that."

    It looks like they are close to offering. I have been told Ohio State is close to offering too and Ohio State is his leader. If he is offered I would expect him to become a Buckeye
