Not if the same refs call the game like they did against Davenport. Straight up Shattuck was handed the game against Davenport from the first offensive snap I’m surprised the Davenport boys didn’t start doing the same thing...oh wait they aren’t taught to cheat and hold or applaud after getting an unsportsmanlike penalty or when the coach gets an unsportsmanlike and the crowd erupts with cheers. What in the hell are you teaching your kids out there ? Cheat when things might not go your way. Very disappointed with the refs and the OSSAA. They got that one wrong ! I feel bad for the kids at Davenport they didn’t have a chance with the refs they had. What has the world gone to when you can’t even count on officials to be just that officials!
Hawkeye, are you sure you were watching the Shattuck/Davenport game? Shattuck had quadruple the penalties that Davenport did. So, how exactly did the officials hand Shattuck the game? How exactly did Shattuck cheat? Bottom line, Shattuck was the better team and won by a huge margin.
hawkeye25 we will have to agree to disagree. I agree with the ref situation but I don’t think we were watching the same game because from where I sat the penalties were not in favor of Shattuck. In just the first half Davenport had 3 penalties for 25 yds and Shattuck had ( you may want to sit down) 9 penalties for 60 yds , 7 of which were holding. So I am sure that had nothing to do with the score being 30-0 at the half. Also in the first half Shattuck ran 42 plays on just 4 possessions. Davenport was a good team and deserved to be in that playoff game but Shattuck was the better team. Good luck next year!
Oh my friend don’t even try and bring up the penalty situation. If you will watch on Shattucks opening drive there are 7 holding calls that were not called. Clear holding all day long. I have the game film if you would like to sit and watch it with me I would gladly meet with you and discuss what we see. I don’t need to rely on memory I have the game film, so anytime you want to meet and watch it we can. Just remember the truth hurts. By the way why the cheers when your players/coach got unsportsmanlike penalties or personal fouls I guess you encourage bad sportsmanship?
Did you happen to see the numerous calls the officials missed against Davenport?? That’s why the coaching staff was so pissed. And one of our underclassmen caught a huge pass and scored a touchdown and celebrated a little too much. Big deal. And guess what, anyone can go online and rewatch the game.
Maybe the OSSAA has a hurt feelings report you can fill out since your team didn’t win.....grow up.
Lol...you know we can sit here and discuss this til the cows come home but what is done is done. Good luck to Regent Prep their going to need it. By the way Regent, Shattuck has windows all through out their defense you can pass on them, just beware of the hits on defenseless players, and their hands outside of the shoulder pads on your defensive linemen, which by the way is a hold by definition.
Hawk, thanks for the advice. We (Regent) did pass on them quite often with good results. Unfortunately for us we couldn't run on them and became one dimensional. They were the better team with twice the roster size we had. We will be back.
