1999: Massillon 23, Youngstown Chaney 14

Tigers awaken at half to corral the Cowboys

Independent Sports Editor

The Cowboys of Youngstown Chaney played like the Cowboys of Dallas in jumping out to a 14‑0 halftime lead over unbeaten Massillon, Friday night.

But the Tigers responded to the challenge in the second half with four unanswered scores to secure a 23‑14 victory in front of 8,420 on homecoming night at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium, upping their record to 5‑0.
While Massillon’s margin of victory was nine points, the game was very much in doubt with four‑and‑a‑half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers were clinging to a 17‑14 lead when Chaney began its final march from its 33‑yard line with only seconds remaining in the third.
Fifteen plays and eight‑and‑a‑half minutes later the Cowboys were at the Massillon 15‑yard line, facing a do‑or‑die fourth‑and‑six situation. Chaney coach Ron Berdis eschewed the field goal and went for the drive sustaining first down.
Chaney quarterback Brad Smith, who had made big plays all night long in compiling 134 yards of total offense, rolled to his right and let fly a pass. But Tigers strong safety Jason Jarvis was in the right place at the right moment, breaking up the aerial and breaking the hearts of the Cowboys.
“They lined up in a double wing and it was the first time they’d come out in that formation the entire game,” Jarvis explained. “I just read my keys like I was taught to do and came up with the big play.”
Chaney coach Ron Berdis couldn’t believe Jarvis was in a position to make a play.
“We ran boot keep and they were loaded up to the short side of the field,” Berdis recalled. “We tried to slip it in to our wingback to get the first down. But they had their strong safety over to the boundary, almost like they knew the play and we’ve never run it before. He just made a good play.”
There were all too few good plays from the Tigers in the first half and coach Rick Shepas told his team that at halftime.
“We expected this Chaney team to come in here and be scrappy,” Shepas said. “We knew they had talent. Our kids weren’t into the game early on and I think it showed in the first half. But, like they’ve done all year long, they were able to turn it up a notch and get it going.”
Massillon came out in the third quarter and established its superiority at the line of scrimmage, producing a seven‑play, 61‑yard touchdown drive that featured three straight running plays to the left side behind tackle Greg Dickerhoof and guard Joe Meanor that produced 43 yards.
“It was a shame in the first half that we couldn’t move them off the ball,” Shepas said. “That’s what we talked about doing at halftime. The kids said they could take advantage of our left side and they did.”
The Tigers’ first score came when Dave Irwin found Rocky Dorsey in the end zone from 10 yards out. Dorsey made a diving catch, his body parallel to the ground when he caught the football.
“I’ve got to give a lot of credit to the offensive line and to Dave Irwin for putting the ball out there,” Dorsey said modestly. “I’ve dropped a few passes in the past but I just thought about that famous quote, ‘Catching a pass is all mental.’ You can put all the stick‑um on your hands you want but what it comes down to is pure concentration.”‘
Brett Marshall’s 22‑yard field goal capped the Tigers’ next possession and it was a 14‑9 Chaney lead with 5:13 left in the third period.
Massillon’s defense then forced the Cowboys into their second straight three‑and‑out possession and the Tiger offense only took six plays to stick the football in the end zone. Jesse Scott took a pitch, exploded through a seam off his left tackle and found pay dirt from 13 yards away to give Massillon its first lead of the night at :26 of the third quarter.
Jesse Robinson added the two point conversion on an end‑around to give the locals a 17‑14 advantage.
Dave Bumgarner closed the scoring for Massillon after Jarvis and the Tiger ‘D’ stopped Chaney’s final drive. The senior fullback capped a seven‑play, 85‑yard drive with a 13yard scoring run to account for the final margin. “We dug down deep and found out what this team was all about,” Jarvis said. “We made a decision at halftime we weren’t goinq to lose this game and we came back and did it. We faced adversity in the first half and came back and showed we’re Tigers.”
Chaney came out for the opening kickoff with a greater sense of urgency than the Tigers and established field position before giving the ball up on downs at Massillon’s 33.
The, Massillon offense was ineffective on its initial possession, punting after just three snaps and the Cowboys took over on their 41.
On first down, Brad Smith kept the football on a bootleg and skirted around left end for 47 yards to the Tigers’ 12.
After two plays netted two yards, Smith made another play. The 6‑foot‑3 junior took a half roll to his right, then found tailback Marcus Patton with a short pass at the Tiger two‑yard line. Patton, back to the goal line, fought his way into the end zone for the touchdown at 7:13 of the first quarter. Chris Jaminet added the extra point and Chaney led 7‑0.
Massillon got one first down on its second possession of the evening but two incompletions doomed the drive and the Tigers again were forced to punt.
Chaney then embarked on a 13‑play drive that began at its own 25. While the Cowboys were unable to put any points on the board with the march, they ate seven minutes off the game clock before giving the football back at the Massillon 27.
Jesse Scott appeared to have lit a fire under his teammates with a spinning, twisting 35‑yard run. But a clipping penalty against the Tigers negated the play and doomed the drive.
Chaney took over at midfield after a Tiger quick kick on third down from the Massillon 14.
Massillon’s defense seemed to have found its groove as Chaney appeared to be stalled on third‑and‑eight from the Tiger 37. But Patton took a pitch back from Smith, cut off his right tackle, then spun to the inside at the 25 and sprinted into the end zone for the touchdown.
Jaminet was again true with the PAT kick and the Cowboys led 14‑0 at 5:38 of the second quarter.
The Tigers then launched their first sustained drive of the night, beginning at their own 42.
On second and eight, Irwin found Dorsey for eight yards and a first down along the right sideline. Perry James went off left guard for six yards and a first down two snaps later as Massillon moved to the Chaney 35.
It appeared the drive had stalled when the Tigers were faced with a fourth‑and‑12 situation at the Chaney 37, but Irwin connected on a clutch throw to tight end Jeremiah Drobney, open over the middle at the 15.
Scott got another first down on the next play, ripping off 11 yards off right tackle to the four. On fourth‑and‑goal from the 3, Irwin’s pass to Price was complete but the Chaney defensive back pulled him down inches short of the TD.

Tigers Roll on to 22nd Consecutive Triumph

(From Plain Dealer Bureau)

MASSILLON, O., Nov. 11 – Youngstown Chaney joined the passing parade of Massillon Tiger victims here this afternoon as the champions coasted to their ninth consecutive victory of the season 38 to 0.

Chalking up their 22nd consecutive victory, the Tigers rolled up eighteen first downs and held Youngstown for three periods without any.

In the final stanza, with Tiger second and third stringers in the fray, Supanic drove to Chaney’s only first down of the afternoon. He was not even listed in the lineups. In this quarter Red James punted for the first time for the Tigers.

Tiger first stringers George Slusser and Red James, who for the first time this season did not start, led the afternoon’s scoring with two touchdowns apiece. Pokey Blunt, who poked his way into a staring lineup for the first time scored another and Junior White, third string back scored one also.
80-Yard March
An 80-yard drive in the first quarter culminated with Slusser piling over for the first Tiger touchdown. Blunt had sparked the attack with two first down smashes.

In the second quarter, Slusser heaved a 25-yard pass to Ray Getz, who was brought down on the Chaney 13. On the next play, Slusser tallied on a wide end sweep.

For the second touchdown of the period the Tigers started from their 8 after Bill Reed had punted accurately to the sidelines.

A first down by Bill Zimmerman on the 22, a 20-yard sprint by Blunt and Slusser’s dash to the 4 from where Blunt scored, turned the trick.

Two snappy plays gave them their first score of the third quarter. A recovery of a Chaney fumble by John Swezey gave them the ball on the 27. On his first play of the game, Red James sprinted for the touchdown. After two passes failed, James was again given the ball. He broke through and was on his way for a touchdown for the longest run of the
afternoon – 61 yards.

Junior White, Tiger third-stringer, scored late in the final stanza on a 9-yard end sweep around his own left end.

Tigers Play Listless Ball, But Score Touchdowns When They Need Them; Team Will Practice Behind Closed Gates Tonight


The Washington high Tigers and the Canton McKinley Bulldogs having kept their slates clean last week by winning from Youngstown Chaney 26-13 and Mansfield 32-0 respectively, will battle for the state championship Saturday afternoon on Massillon field.

The two elevens have mopped up on many of the best teams in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York and with Massillon in the role of defending champion and Canton, the challenger, one of the finest football games in many years is in the making.
Large Crowd Expected
The largest crowd of the season will jam every inch of space in Massillon field to see the two elevens’ battle. Most of the tickets are held by fans of the two cities, though hundreds of people from other cities, as far away as Honolulu will be in the stands.

The splendid undefeated and untied records of the competitors and the championship recognition that will be given the winner would draw a crowd from two to three times that which will witness the game, if seating space were only available. No attempt has been made to sell tickets to any other but Massillon and Canton fans and there even will be insufficient room for as many of them as would like to attend.

Most of the reserved seats have been sold, but a few seats were still available today. Likewise, 5,000 general admission seats will be available Saturday. The general admission price will be 50 cents to adults and 25 cents to students.

The nearer the game approaches the more it appears a tossup. There was a time a few weeks ago when fans were picking Massillon by 18 points, but in the last three weeks, Canton has played three teams defeated by Massillon and a comparison of the scores offers little choice.
The Tigers beat Alliance 19-6, Canton beat Alliance 33-26. Massillon beat Steubenville
31-0. Massillon beat Mansfield 33-7. Canton beat Mansfield 32-0. Massillon beat Canton Lehman 52-0. Canton beat Canton Lehman 48-6.
Massillon Has Won Nine Games
The Tigers have played nine games, the Bulldogs eight.

In addition to the four victories already mentioned the Tigers have defeated McKeesport, Pa., 19-7; Warren 21-0; Sharon, Pa., 37-20; New Castle, Pa., 52-7; and Youngstown Chaney, 26-13. The Bulldogs defeated Akron South, 32-0; Erie Academy, 7-6; Huntington, W.Va., 19-6 and Elmira, N.Y., 52-6 in addition to Lehman, Alliance, Steubenville and Mansfield.

In their nine games the Tigers scored 290 points to their opponents 60, an average of 32.1 points to the opponents’ 6.66 points per game. The Bulldogs scored 255 points to the opponents’ 50, an average of 31.87 points to the opponents’ 6.25.

Of the two teams, the Tigers had the harder game Saturday. Chaney, recognized as a good team, met a Martinless Massillon at a time when the entire eleven was low.

The visitors, playing inspired ball, gave local fans their biggest thrill of the season when trailing 14-0 going into the fourth quarter they scored two touchdowns, one on a completed pass and another on an intercepted pass to pull up to within a point of the orange and black.

But the Tigers came to life after the second Chaney touchdown to play their best ball of the afternoon and score twice in the last seven minutes to win 26-13.

The Chaney team was one of the best to show here this season. Score comparisons showed it to be such in advance for it had beaten Farrell, Pa., a team that trimmed Warren and the Tigers were glad for a three-touchdown victory over Warren.

The Tigers were far superior from a statistical standpoint for they made 18 first downs to Chaney’s seven and gained a total of 393 yards to Chaney’s 97.
Chaney Stubborn
However, the Youngstown boys offered stubborn resistance when fighting with their backs to the wall and penalties and fumbles halted Massillon drives.

Inability to complete passes slowed the Massillon offense. Chaney was responsible for that too. With a big advantage in weight, the visitors safely used a 5-3-2-1 defense that furnished good protection to the secondary. It left openings for Massillon ball carriers, but virtually stopped the Tiger passing attack. Only two of 11 passes were completed for gains of 27 yards. Here Chaney had the edge in statistics. It completed seven of 17, including laterals for a total of 94 yards.

Capt. Red Snyder and Ray Getz were the chief Tiger ground gainers. Snyder picked up 174 yards and Getz the net total of 156. Frendenrich, Sinkwich and Chockey were the shining lights of the Chaney offense.

Chaney started with a rush and with Frendenrich getting away for a run of 41 yards before being hauled down by Capt. Snyder, advanced the ball from the kickoff to the 26-yard line. Here interference was called on a Chaney pass receiver and the visitors were given the ball on the Tiger 10-yard line. Three downs only gained a yard and Sinkwich missed an attempted field goal.

Getting the ball on their own 20, the Tigers marched 80 yards for a touchdown with Snyder going over. Getz kicked the extra point.

Two 15-yard penalties, one for clipping and another for holding stopped two more Tiger touchdown drives in the first period. In the second quarter the Tigers marched the ball to the Chaney 25 where three incomplete passes in a row gave the visitors the ball again.

The Tigers did not score until midway in the third period, when they began a drive from their own 41 where they got the ball on a punt. The locals’ only two passes of the game, both caught by Getz, helped advance the ball to the three-yard line where Snyder took it over and Getz kicked goal.
Chaney Scores Twice
The period was drawing to a close when Wellington covered Getz’s fumble on the Massillon 45. Sinkwich in two plays went to the 30 and Chockey executed a perfect lateral to him for another first down on the eight-yard line. Two plays failed to gain a yard but on fourth down, Chockey flipped a pass over the line to Soltas who took it back of the goal for a touchdown. Sinkwich missed his try for point.
Boosters Meet

The Tiger Booster club will meet
this evening at 8:15
in the high school auditorium.
The Canton game
will be the big subject of conversation.
The Tigers received and charged back to the 50, but when Slusser tried a long pass to Toles, Sinkwich left his feet to snare the ball, head down the west sideline then reverse his field to run 70 yards for Chaney’s second touchdown. He kicked the extra point and the score was 14-13.

Here the Tiger team took account of itself and used the kickoff as a starting point for a 66-yard drive that ended with Snyder smashing over from the one-yard line on the 10th play. Getz missed the try for point and the score was 20-13.

Chaney trying desperately to upset the dope in the closing minutes began flinging passes. Snyder intercepted one to end what had the appearance of a threat on the 36-yard line and Gillom pulled down another on the Chaney 34 and ran back to the 14 before the visitors finally downed him. In two plays Snyder went to the one-yard line where Getz took it over for the final points of the game.

Unimpressive as the Tigers were Saturday, it was not an alarming condition considering that they virtually overlooked Chaney last week while pointing for the Canton Bulldogs.

It is dangerous enough to take a second rate ball team in the stride and Chaney was a far better eleven than that. Furthermore you need only think back to other years and you will recall that Massillon teams the past three seasons have looked ragged the week before the Canton game.

Spotty as their performance was Saturday, it is worthy of note, that 10 plays after Chaney had pulled up to within a point of them, the Tigers were over the goal for another touchdown.

Gordon Appleby and Jim Mauger did a good job at center but the ball carriers do not have the same confidence in either boy that they retain in Earl Martin who has been snapping the leather back to them for two years.

Martin is a key man on offense and the center of the line on defense and every attempt will be made to have his injured shoulder repaired by Saturday afternoon. However, coaches said it was extremely doubtful if he would be able to face the Bulldogs.
May Make Center Of Kingham
Brown this week will attempt to turn Dick Kingham into a center to give “boom” to that portion of the line. Kingham, a sophomore, has been the third string blocking halfback.

The Tigers emerged from the Chaney game with the usual number of bumps and bruises, none of which appeared serious. Practice this week will be secret. The field will be policed and not a spectator will be permitted on it.

McKinley had little difficulty subduing Mansfield. The Bulldogs scored one touchdown in the first quarter, two in the second and two in the third and made 19 first downs to Mansfield’s nine. The Bulldog subs played all of the fourth period and several minutes of the third. The Bulldogs uncovered a new backfield speedster in Bill Goodman, a sophomore. He started his first game Saturday. Motley and Roman each made two touchdowns and Goodman got the fifth.

The Tiger and McKinley bands will put on a first class show between halves here Saturday. The Massillon band was at its best during intermission of the Chaney game featuring “The Bugle Call Rag” and a dance step. It was a special arrangement prepared by Director George Bird and received a great ovation.

The singing showed improvement. Though the crowd was by far the smallest of the season the vocal music was the best.

Among the spectators was H.R. Townsend, of Columbus, commissioner of the Ohio high school athletics. Townsend expressed surprise at the size of the Massillon team. He expected to find a string of box cars on the line instead of a team averaging 162 pounds.

A representative of the Erie Times watched the game from the press box. He was particularly impressed with the band and would like to bring the Massillon show to Erie.

Massillon Scores Twice in Opening Period, Then Benches Snavely and Anderson for Rest of Game; Passes Help Chaney Score


Flashing their old form with two of their convalescing stars back in the lineup, the Washington high Tigers turned back the invasion of Youngstown Chaney here Friday evening, 28-6 before 4,000 fans, the smallest crowd of the season.

With the new offense flashing power the few minutes the team was kept intact, the Tiger gridders ripped through to a pair of touchdowns in the first period, bogged down as Coach Paul Brown experimented for two more quarters, and then gathered an additional 14 points the last stanza.

Chaney Played Good Ball
As expected, Chaney turned loose a good team. You may not believe it but statistics show the Youngstown gridders gained more yards by passing and more yards by rushing than New Castle last week, but lacked the defensive strength of the Pennsylvania team.

The Tigers scored 14 first downs to the visitors’ 11 and gained the net total of 326 yards from scrimmage to Chaney’s 224 yards.

The Tigers looked like their old selves the first period when they pushed the visiting eleven around with will. They took the kickoff and Bob Glass nearly got away with it, running back to the Chaney 42-yard line before being downed. Two plays later he was away for a 35-yard touchdown dash.

March 78 Yards To Score
Later on in the period, Glass, Bill Zimmerman and Red Snyder, who started his first game at fullback, ripped and snorted 74 yards to the Chaney four-yard line where Glass smashed through left tackle for the touchdown. He kicked both extra points from placements and with the Tigers leading 14-0, Snavely, Glass and Junior Anderson left the game. Glass went back in the second period but Snavely and Anderson kept out of it for their own welfare.

The Tiger attack bogged down, however, and though the club would have shoved over a touchdown in the first half had not the gun cracked with the ball inches short of a touchdown and first down coming up, it did not get across the Chaney line again until the fourth period.

They drove to the six-yard line where Chaney braced and twice threw back Glass to take possession of the ball and halt the march. But it proved costly nevertheless, for Frank Terleci, dropping behind his goal to punt, got a bad pass from center and had to fall on the ball in the Promised Land for a safety that hoisted the Massillon score to 16 points.

The hog-hide was brought out for a free kick and there followed a 70-yard spurt that ended with Toles strutting the big apple around right end for 10 yards and a touchdown.

That was enough for Chaney. Passes that all evening had spattered against the dirt like so many wasted bullets, began to hit their mark. Terlecki flung one 28 yards to John Soltas. Another to Alex Chockey gained 12 more and a first down on the 15-yard stripe.

Lynn ripped for eight yards and an offside penalty put the leather on the two-yard line. Terleck had enough left in him to drive back the Massillon eight man line the remaining two yards for a touchdown.

Passes Scores For Tigers
It took just two plays to get the next and last Massillon touchdown. Sam Doroslov, starting his first game as the Tiger blocking back, nearly got a bowler’s strike as he gathered in Terlecki’s kickoff on the 10-yard line and waded down the alley with a pair of trip-hammer knees lifting the opposition out of the way. He was brought down from behind on the Chaney 46-yard line, after one player had slowed him up in the open. On the next play, George Slusser, substituting for Glass, stepped back and pegged a pretty pass down the alley to Bill Zimmerman who caught the ball on the 20-yard line and headed for the left sideline and a touchdown.

Chaney would not quit even then however and Terlecki tossed more bombs at the Tigers as his team carried the ball to the nine-yard line only to be halted when Toles tickled Pat Lynn’s feet for a four-yard loss. An incomplete pass on fourth down gave the ball to Massillon and ended the threat.

Chaney had a pair of fast backs in Lynn and Sinkovich and a good thrower in Terlecki. A peg off a lateral in the opening stanza would have been good for a touchdown had Soltas held the ball. It might have changed the complexion of the ball game and at least would have forced Coach Brown to use Snavely and Anderson for a longer period.

Offensively, Chaney gained nearly twice as many yards as did New Castle last week and made 11 first downs to New Castle’s six.

The visitors gained the net total of 104 yards by rushing and an additional 120 yards by passing.

However, Chaney did not have the stout defense the Pennsylvania team threw up here last week, though they fashioned it somewhat after New Castle’s style. One reason was that Massillon had Anderson and Snavely. Fans saw just how important they are to the team.

During the first period, while they were in the game, the local eleven gained 124 of their 326 yards and held the visitors to 24 yards.

The Tigers were not out to make a kill last night, however, but were satisfied to win and rest the injured while experimenting for the future.

New Lineup On Field
As announced Friday, Brown started a revamped lineup, but the entire eleven was together for such a short time one had little time to judge its possibilities.

The revamped lineup consisted of several changes. Red Snyder who has blocked all year was shifted to fullback and Doroslov was brought into the backfield to block. Zimmerman was retained at a halfback post along with Glass. On the line, Bud Lucius gave way to Bill MacMichael, a rugged chap who did a good job the short time he played at guard.

Snyder carried the ball 13 times last night and gained a total of 69 yards, one of which was a 23-yard run. Glass carried the ball 18 times and gained 111 yards.

The game was the Tigers’ last night performance of the season. They will end their home schedule here next Saturday afternoon with Barberton.

The Tiger band was on the job as usual and gave a pleasing performance between halves despite the frosty air.

Those Massillon cheerleaders strutted their stuff too and put more life and novel maneuvers into their leadership.

Chaney had a couple of hundred fans in the east bleachers to buoy the spirit of their team.

The visitors’ suits were deceiving. Players looked considerable smaller than the Massillon gridders, but in the dressing room you saw the difference. Chaney was actually several pounds heavier than Massillon.
