Injuries add misery to Lafayette Jeff loss

September 25, 2011
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Lafayette Jeff lost more than a Hoosier Crossroads Conference football game to Class 5A No. 9 Brownsburg on Friday night in Scheumann Stadium.

The Bronchos (2-4) played the final 15 minutes of this 45-21 homecoming loss without their three most explosive offensive weapons -- senior wide receiver Jonah Green (ankle), sophomore running back Darian Green (ankle) and junior wide receiver/lick return Lucas Wallace (knee).

While coach Andy Kennedy said the Greens could have played had the Bronchos been within striking distance, Wallace's knee injury appears to be serious. He is scheduled to be examined this morning by Dr. Robert Hagen.

After watching No. 6 Hamilton Southeastern amass 36 points and 534 total yards last Friday night, Jeff needed every offensive weapon this time as Brownsburg (5-1) rolled up 45 points and 539 yards.

Jeff got a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown from Wallace before he was injured, a touchdown pass from quarterback Nick Scheumann and a running touchdown from Justin Ulmer, but it wasn't enough.

"It's tough having sophomores come in for Lucas and Jonah," Scheumann said. "They don't know the offense as well, because they don't get as many reps in practice. Not having arguably our two best wide receivers in the game in this conference is difficult.

"We play three of the four best teams in this conference in a four-week stretch, and we just have to dig deep. We know that Jonah and Darian are good players and that they will come back and play, but we are going to need to play a lot harder than we did tonight. We didn't show up to play. We have to show up to play against teams like this."

Next up for Jeff are trips to Avon and reigning Class 5A state champion Fishers.

The Bronchos forced a pair of early turnovers Friday but failed to capitalize. Brownsburg, which got 308 rushing yards from Isaac Beverstock, scored 28 second-quarter points to lead 35-7 through 24 minutes.

"We're in that stretch when we get Hamilton Southeastern, Brownsburg, Avon and Fishers, but other teams have that same type of schedule," Kennedy said. "You have to hope that you can keep their confidence from week to week.

"Last week, we got two turnovers in the first quarter against Hamilton Southeastern, and then we got two tonight in the first quarter. If you want to beat good teams, usually you have to capitalize on those. From a coaching standpoint, it was very frustrating when we didn't capitalize."

Kennedy said it was difficult for quarterback Scheumann to run the entire offense without the two Greens and Wallace.

"We got beat up tonight," Kennedy said. "They physically took it to us. They do have a great offensive scheme, and they are very good at blocking it. We didn't respond. We didn't adjust to game speed very well."

Scheumann completed 12 of 23 passes for 148 yards, including a touchdown to Reggie Henderson.
