After their 14-13 upset win at home over previously undefeated Galion, the 4-3, 3-1 Wynford Royals have put themselves back in the hunt for and NCC championship and a trip to the playoffs. Now they have to stay in contention as they head to 6-1, 3-1 Colonel Crawford on Friday. The Royals find themselves in a four way tie for first place with the Eagles, Galion and Upper Sandusky who was upset by Bucyrus last Friday 37-36. The Royals may use the same one-two punch at quarterback that they used last week in Corey Brown and Keaton Teynor who combined for 137 yards on the ground last week against the Tigers, but it was the Royals defense that held Galion to just 163 total yards and 64 yards on the ground while containing one of the best athletes in the area in Galion QB Dareian Watkins. This week the Royals will try to contain another of the area's best players in Colonel Crawford QB Nate Klingenberger who has thrown for 1,223 yards with 11 touchdowns. Klingenberger has also run for 446 yards and scored seven rushing touchdowns. But Wynford coach Gabe Helbert is quick to point out that the Eagles have more than just one player. Helbert states they can run the ball with with Eli Reffey, Dalton Scott and Will Kirkpatrick who have combined for 870 yards rushing with 12 TD's. Klingenberger also has multiple targets to throw to in Nick Adams, Kam Landin, Dylan Gulley, Marcus Garverick and Owen Adams. All have over 100 yards receiving with Adams having 418 yards and Gulley 378 both have combined for ten touchdowns with Landin having the other six point catch. Heading into the game 4-3 Wynford is ranked ninth in Division VI of Region 20. The Royals may need to win out to advance to what would be their ninth straight post-season appearance, most consecutive run by any area team. The Eagles at 6-1 are ranked 5th. Crawford may also need to win out to advance to their second straight playoff appearance, possibly hosting a home game should they finish in the top four. The Wynford at Col.Crawford contest is the WMFD TV Game of the Week. You can see the playback at midnight Friday and at 8:30 Saturday morning.
