|Senior quarterback Kirk Maxwell and
his Zane Trace Pioneers completed
their golden season Friday night with
a 38-7 win over Paint Valley.
The needed script for a Paint Valley upset started to write itself Friday night as the Bearcats
took the opening drive down for a score-a 35 TD run by senior Ben Krech, held ZT to a field
goal-a 37-yard FG by Nick Ganus, and then was knocking on the door of a possible 14-3 lead.
Paint Valley, up 7-3, had it deep in ZT territory when they turned it over on downs. On the
ensuing possession, Zane Trace quarterback Kirk Maxwell broke loose for an 89-yard scoring
run. All of a sudden, what was starting to look like a possible two-score advantage for the
Bearcats was now a 10-7 lead for Zane Trace.
A short time later, Maxwell and the Pioneers were on the move again. This drive was capped off
by a Maxwell to Gabe Haynes scoring strike from six yards out to give ZT a 17-7 lead- a lead
they had entering the half.
After the half, the ball belonged to Zane Trace once again, and once again, Maxwell was off and
running. Some hard running from Ben Jones helped move the ball down to the Paint Valley 26
yard line when Maxwell turned in the highlight run of the night with a TD run that put the
Pioneers up 24-7.
The final nail in the coffin came on the first play of the fourth quarter when Maxwell scored
from one yard out to stretch the lead to 31-7. Fullback Chris Finley added a late score for Zane
On the night, Maxwell recorded a ridiculous stat line. The senior signal caller rushed 11 times for
225 yards and three scores. He also threw for 80 yards and a score. The Pioneers received great
contribution from the entire offensive unit. Ben Jones ran hard all night totaling 79 yards on 18
rushes. Ganus also enjoyed another perfect night as he made good on his one FG attempt, all
five PATs, and he continued to hammer kickoffs deep into the end zone to neutralize the great
Paint Valley return game.
In the loss for PV, Krech was outstanding on the ground in his final high school game as he
scored his team's only touchdown. Wes Parker, another PV senior, added 23 rushes for 88 yards.
|Paint Valley's Chris Medved calls the defense for the
Bearcats for the final time
Longtime coach stepping away from the sideline
Personal Note: I want to congratulate Paint Valley defensive coordinator Chris
Medved on a great career. Coach Medved is calling it quits after a long period of time of
calling the Paint Valley defense. I personally spent several years coaching with Coach
Medved on the baseball diamond, and I can assure all the SVC fans that you will not find
a classier, more respected person or coach.
