Jacks end playoffs

Senior Tony Lamb attempts to strip the ball from the Cavalier running back.  

The Oakwood Lumberjacks lost 35-7 in the second post-season playoff game against last year’s Division IV defending state champions Coldwater. Regardless, the tenacity of the Lumberjacks prevailed in the mid-fourth quarter when senior Robby Sherk tackled a Cavalier running back to result in an Oakwood fumble recovery in Cavalier territory. The Jacks proceeded to capitalize when senior Will Garner caught an eight yard touchdown pass from Robby Sherk, followed by the PAT by senior David Miller for a score of 28-7 with less than six minutes remaining in the game.  Though the Cavaliers scored on their next possession for a final score of 35-7, the Lumberjacks were able to score a touchdown to end Coldwater’s three-game shutout streak.

Senior Will Garner out-runs the pursuing Coldwater defense for an 8 yd TD catch from senior Robby Sherk in the mid 4th quarter.
