DHS Footballers end season in Winnipeg

The Dryden Eagles football season ended Thursday Oct 27th against the 3rd seeded Daniel Mac Maroons in Winnipeg. The host team jumped to a 7-0 first quarter lead on their first drive before the game settled into a more defensive contest. The Eagles missed a couple of early chances to strike deep and even the contest and gradually the Maroons began to win the field position battle.

The second period saw the wheels come off the Dryden bus after both teams traded touchdowns. With the 14-7 Maroon lead and Dryden at midfield trying to move even the Daniel Mac pass rush sacked quarterback Ryan Martel and returned the ensuing fumble the distance to jump ahead 20-7, the conversion was missed. The Maroons would add 2 more scores and seize complete control before the half.

Jesse Gerula, who had scored Dryden’s first touchdown, took the first handoff in the 3rd quarter 82 yards before being dragged down at the Mac 3. Jeremy Euler plunged in 2 plays later but it would be the last scoring for the Eagles while the Maroons would  add 3 second half TD’s to finish with a 54-13 win and a trip to the semi finals.

The game marked the end of  Eagle football careers and the coaching staff would like to thank defensive stalwarts Caine Benham, Patrick Wall, rushing leader Jeremy Euler and DB’s Josh Leutschaft and Dylan Cuuyler , DB/K Ben Arsenault, DL Brenden Sawanas, OG Thomas Cooper, DL’s Rob LeCot and Ray Durand for their contributions to the long tradition of Eagles football.

With the many returning players and the first graduates of the Falcons minor football program  coming in, the team should see improvement in the win/loss column in 2012. In almost every statistical category the 2011 squad did gain from the previous year, learning to physically dominate and out point the opposition proved a harder lesson to master. The group is willing to work and the coaches look forward to taking steps forward together with the players.

Thanks to all who supported the team this past season, especially those who helped make Dryden’s first night game a great spectacle for football in our area.

Eagles Football results from Winnipeg

The Dryden Eagles defence played their best game of the season by far on Wednesday Oct 19th against St. Norbert. Led by Caine Benham’s 11 tackles and strong efforts from Patrick Wall and Rainier Penner out of their linebacker spots, the D allowed only a field goal in the 2nd quarter to the host Celtics.

On a bright, sunny day at Eastside field both teams posted zeros on the scoreboard after 12 minutes of play.  St. Norbert opened the scoring midway through the second frame when they returned an interception 17 yards for a major. The field goal made it 10-0 at the half.

After the break Dryden attempted an onside kick that St. Norbert recovered but was not able to convert into points. In the 4th quarter the hosts drove the ball to a first and goal from the 4 yard line but on three consecutive runs , the Eagles defenders refused to break. There would be no scoring until 2 minutes remained in the game, QB Brayden Hansson being tackle in the Dryden end zone for a safety. The final score was 12-0.

With little on the line in terms of playoff seeding, Dryden saw some players expand their game experience and try new options. Dryden next faces a Daniel Mac Maroons squad that left McMaster field with a 27-14 win earlier in the campaign. The coaching staff is optimistic that a week of study, work and belief on the part of the players can lead to the upset.

Friday Football Results

The Eagles offensive squad squares off against the Fort Frances defenders Friday night.

It went down to the final minute in the first night game ever hosted in Northwestern Ontario.

A large crowd surrounded Harry McMaster Field in Dryden Friday night to watch the Fort Frances Muskies battle the Dryden Eagles underneath the lights. Very few left early and they were treated to a back and forth clash that ultimately was sealed with an interception of a Dryden pass on the Muskie goal line with 42 seconds remaining. The fans also saw a highly entertaining half time game between members of the Grade 7 and 8 Dryden Minor Football League Falcons.

The visitors came out quickly and carried the tempo early, taking a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. In the second Dryden found some offence and took the lead on an 11 yard TD run by Jesse Gerula which was converted by Ben Arsenault. After scoring a single to tie the game, Fort Frances capitalized on a few Dryden mistakes late in the half and took a 14-7 lead with under a minute to play on a short TD plunge.

The third quarter saw a more determined and physical Dryden team and they moved the ball well on the ground with solid line play and dogged running by Jeremy Euler and Ryan Martel. Dryden closed the gap to 14-10 with a 20 yard Arsenault field goal early. With momentum on their side Dryden went ahead when Adam Saunders cut back through the middle and scored from 5 yards out after another sustained drive. The defence then worked to hold up the 17-14 margin, Caine Benham leading the way with 12 tackles and Tanner Russell intercepting his 3rd pass of the season.  Fort Frances ran a well executed fake punt for 32 yards with just over 5 minutes to play and kept their drive going. 2 minutes later they once again jumped ahead, scoring a rushing TD.

The Eagles had to drive 75 yards for a major with under 3 minutes to play and, for a while, it looked like they just might. Adam Saunders completed a halfback pass to Brendan Bartlett for 25 yards and Martel and Euler moved the ball on the ground to where Dryden was first and goal from the Muskie 10 with a minute and 25 seconds remaining. After an incomplete pass, Martel attempted to scramble for the goalline and looked like he might score before the last Fort defender made a great effort to trip him up on the 6. After taking a timeout Dryden ran one last play but the pass coverage was good and, needing to try, Martel heaved a toss to the goal line under pressure and had it picked off.

Despite the score, the coaches were pleased with the support from fans from both towns and felt that it was a great night for football in the area. Very impressive were the donations and efforts from the community to make the game happen. Football, and sport in general, brings out the character in people and the players from both sides both competed fiercely and left respecting one another.

Dryden closes out its regular season on Wednesday Oct 19th in Winnipeg against the St. Norbert Celtics in a tune up for the quarterfinals the following week. With not much impact on the seeding likely, the Eagles coaches will be looking to use the game to try new things and experiment with different lineup combinations.
