PHILLIPS'S LATE FIELD GOAL GIVES KIRKWOOD ANOTHER DRAMATIC WIN OVER SUMMIT
The Kirkwood football team did it again.
The top-ranked and undefeated Pioneers needed a 29-yard field goal from kicker Andrew Phillips with 11.9 seconds remaining to defeat host Summit 33-31 in a Class 5 quarterfinal playoff game Saturday.
“I’ve been waiting all four years,” Phillips said of his first game-winner.
The No. 1 team in the STLhighschoolsports.com large-schools rankings and ranked second in Class 5, Kirkwood (11-0) has made a habit of dramatic come-from-behind victories this season.
The Pioneers have now won four such games after also rallying against Hazelwood East on Sept. 2, Summit on Sept. 15 and against rival Webster Groves last Monday.
“We’re doing something right,” Kirkwood coach Matt Irvin said. “We’re more fortunate than we deserve to be. Our defense got a couple stops when they had to, and special teams played big today. I’m proud of how they finished.”
The Pioneers, who overcame a season-high four turnovers, advance to play at Parkway Central (11-1) in the semifinals on Friday. The Colts, who lost to Kirkwood 28-2 on Nov. 12, won at Camdenton 7-0 on Saturday.
Kirkwood trailed Summit 17-14 at halftime, but the teams were tied at 24-24 after three quarters.
The Pioneers scored first in the fourth quarter as Edward Richey returned a fumble 36 yards for a touchdown with 8:53 left, but Summit’s Eric Beisel blocked the point-after kick.
The Falcons (8-4) then took a 31-30 lead with 4:01 remaining when James Crockett found Luke Hartmann in the back of the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown pass against double coverage, and Ben Tesson kicked the extra point.
But Kirkwood answered with a scoring drive. Quarterback Jordan Bishop converted two fourth-and-short situations and one third-and-2 with runs to move into field goal position, before Phillips converted his second field goal of the second half and fourth of the season.
“He’s used to that kind of moment,” Irvin said. “He said, ‘Coach, no pressure.’ I didn’t say a word to him.”
Bishop completed 12 of 26 passes for 146 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions, and ran 24 times for 121 yards. Ramon Alton rushed 19 times for 132 yards and a touchdown.
Crockett completed 16 of 30 passes for 193 yards, with two touchdown passes to Hartmann and one interception, one of three second-half turnovers for the Falcons. Ian McIntosh had 143 yards rushing and a touchdown on 14 carries.
A Missouri linebacker recruit who missed the first meeting with Kirkwood, Beisel had 23 tackles, a 1-yard touchdown run, an interception and the blocked kick.
“We made enough plays to win, and unfortunately at the end there we came up short,” Summit coach Mike Bellers said. “It’s disappointing, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.”
As the Kirkwood players walked off the field Saturday, they heard that both Lee’s Summit West and Staley had lost in the quarterfinals. Lee’s Summit West is the top-ranked team in Class 5, and Staley, which defeated the Pioneers in the Class 5 title game a year ago, is third.
Now Kirkwood is just one win away from returning to the Edward Jones Dome and one step closer to playing for the opportunity to capture that elusive first state championship.
“We’ve got that drive on the inside that this is our year,” said Matt Berry, an offensive/defensive lineman. “We’re not playing Turkey Day this year. Our varsity is not playing Turkey Day. We’ve got that drive. This is what this group of seniors has been talking about since we’ve been 8 years old. We’ve known since we were 8 years old that this is what we’re doing.
"We get to situations like this, you don’t see yourself losing. It’s nerve-wracking to say the least. It’s scary when it comes down to the field goal in high school football, because those are so erratic. It’s a good feeling. Man, it’s a good feeling.”

McIntosh, Summit blow past Fox, advance to District Final at Jackson
FENTON • After going three weeks without a victory, the Summit Falcons were a hungry bunch.
No one was more gridiron-starved than senior tailback Ian McIntosh, who ran 13 times for 108 yards and scored three touchdowns as host Summit blew past Fox 34-0 in a Class 5 District 1 contest.
“It feels real good,” said McIntosh, whose team lost its last two regular-season contests and received a bye in the first round of districts. “We’ve had two good weeks of practice and we definitely needed this.”
Summit (7-3) advances to the district championship game on Monday at 7 p.m. at Jackson. The No. 1 seed, Jackson advanced with a 54-14 win Wednesday night over visiting Vianney.
Fox, which ended its season 5-6, struggled to move the ball all evening. Junior quarterback Tyler Thompson led the way with 57 yards on 14 carries.
The game marked the return of Summit standout and Mizzou recruit Eric Beisel, who had been sidelined with a broken foot since a victory over Parkway North in the third week of the season. Summit was 3-0 in games Beisel played, and 3-3 in those he didn’t.
The senior middle linebacker, who did a good job plugging up the middle against the run-oriented Warriors, said he was thrilled to be back on the field.
“It felt amazing,” Beisel said. “I got a lot off my chest -- all that stress of sitting on the sidelines.”
No one was happier to see the team’s 6-foot-4, 238-pounder back on the field than Summit coach Mike Bellers.
“It’s a big lift for the coaches, the kids and the school,” Bellers said. “He’s probably the best football athlete to ever come out of Summit. To do without him for two months was something we had to endure, but we’re just happy to have him back.”
Summit led 24-0 at the half on a pair of first-half scoring runs from McIntosh, a 10-yard touchdown run by quarterback James Crockett and a 33-yard field goal from Ben Tesson.
Bellers said the layoff of almost two weeks didn’t have a negative effect.
“It was 10 days, so it was just enough to kind of get some things done and get some kids healthy,” Bellers said. “It was a good thing.
“This was the kind of game we need to play. Good weather, on a fast field … we have a little more identity on who we are now.”
Summit added a 4-yard run from McInstosh with one minute left in the third quarter and a 37-yard field goal by Tesson with 8:23 to play. Crockett finished 14-of-21 passing for 161 yards.
Fox, which had lost to the Falcons 49-14 at Oakville in Week 2, had little success through the air as well. Thompson finished just three-of-10 passing for 25 yards.
The Warriors battled in the second half of the season, winning two of their final four games. Last week they defeated Seckman in the first round of districts.
“I’m proud of the turnaround our kids have started to make,” Fox coach Brent Tinker said. “The most frustrating thing tonight was the chippiness at the end of the game. In order for us to take the next step as a program, we have to learn how to handle all types of adversity.”
Tinker said it was tough for his defenders to get their hands on the elusive McIntosh.
“He’s really shifty,” Tinker said. “But it’s not just him. I think their offensive line is considerably underrated. They’re not the biggest group, but they’re scrappy. And he (McIntosh) does an an amazing job of getting in and out of holes.”
Beisel said the Falcons can’t wait to play for a district crown.
“(Jackson) is doing really well this season,” Beisel said. “It’s going to be a fun game.”

Nice Article about SENIOR DE Alex Brinker
October 11, 2012
Brinker creating his own spotlight
MoSports.com Senior Editor
With a 6-1 record and a state ranking for each week of the 2012 season the Summit Falcons have been flying high this season. Mizzou bound senior linebacker Eric Beisel has garnered plenty of attention, but this Summit team as outstanding talent at many positions.
|Brinker earned all-Suburban South honors as a junior.
One top player who continues to fly under the radar is senior defensive end/tightend Alex Brinker stands 6-foot-2 inches, weighs 226-pounds and has been timed in the 40-yard dash at 4.7 seconds.
Named junior defensive most valuable player and earning Suburban South all-conference honors at tight end a season go Brinker is not without honors.
On defense this season Brinker leads the Falcons with 57 tackles, including 30 unassisted. Brinker also has recorded a pair of sacks, two fumble recoveries, and has 7 tackles for loss. "Alex plays defensive end for us, but is athletic and runs like a linebacker", commented Summit head coach Mike Bellers. "(He is) very quick and has great feet."
On offense Brinker gets the job done blocking and has caught 4 passes for 112 yards. "He catches everything, we need to get him the ball more, but lacks some development as a route runner", added Bellers.
"Alex has been very consistent on both sides of the ball. He has had to tough through several injuries, which has held him back a small amount.
Awaiting his first offer, Brinker has visited Indiana State and has unofficial visits planned to Cincinnati.
"I hope he gets to play more football", added Bellers. With the success of Brinker and the Falcons that could be in the playoffs ahead or on Saturday's at the next level.

KIRKWOOD CLINGS TO UNBEATENED RECORD IN NARROW WIN OVER SUMMIT
ST. LOUIS • The Kirkwood football team already has proven to be more resilient in the past three weeks than it needed to be throughout the duration of its 12-win season a year ago.
The top-ranked Pioneers overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit Saturday night with touchdown runs by quarterback Jordan Bishop and running back Ramon Alton to defeat Summit 28-24 in a Suburban South Conference game at the Edward Jones Dome as part of the Great American Football Classic.
“We really had some miscues in the first half,” Kirkwood coach Matt Irvin said. “It was similar to the script we had against Hazelwood East. Miscues on special teams. Big plays on defense. We had that turnover in the red zone and a lot of penalties that were tough, drive-killing penalties. Credit to our kids. They hung in there and came back and won a game in the fourth quarter against a very good football team.”
The No. 1 team in the STLhighschoolsports.com large-schools rankings and in the Class 5 state poll, Kirkwood (4-0 overall, 2-0 in league play) dominated most of its opponents in 2011 as it went 12-1 and finished as the runner-up in Class 5.
But these Pioneers have faced more challenges.
“A lot of teams don’t do this,” said Alton, who had 200 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 24 carries. “We just came out and played Kirkwood football. We only played half of it the first half. The second half we knew we had to come out here and do something, because Summit, they’re a great team, but we just had to go out there and come out on top.”
The Pioneers were able to overcome a 16-point halftime deficit against Hazelwood East two weeks ago by scoring 26 unanswered points in a 32-22 victory. And on Saturday night they trailed for most of four quarters.
“There are some habits you want to keep, like resilience, but let’s quit doing that,” Irvin said. “Let’s quit digging holes.”
Ranked seventh among area large schools, Summit (3-1, 1-1) took control of the contest early despite playing without standout linebacker Eric Beisel, a University of Missouri recruit who is out with a foot injury.
“We have some winners on this team, and we went out and we had no doubt that we could play with these guys,” Summit coach Mike Bellers said. “There was no fear. That was really good to see. We made some plays. We struggled to run the ball all game long. Then that hurt us late in the game when you have to run the ball when you have the lead.”
Summit took advantage of an early turnover to get the first score.
Kirkwood’s first series ended with a bad snap over the head of the Pioneers’ punter, which Summit’s Luke Hartmann jumped on in the end zone for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead with 7:40 left in the first quarter.
The teams exchanged touchdowns in the second quarter.
After Summit got a 34-yard touchdown pass from James Crockett to wide receiver Nick Bamvakais, Kirkwood answered with a 16-yard touchdown run by Ramon Alton.
After Summit responded with an 86-yard touchdown pass from Crockett to running back Ian McIntosh, Kirkwood followed with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Bishop to Clyde Benson to make it 21-14.
Summit led 24-14 with 9 minutes 5 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter after Ben Tesson converted a 33-yard field goal, but the Falcons couldn’t hold the lead.
