P. 4 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1 I, 2010 THE OSKALOOSA INDEPENDENT Sports Panthers' second half surge crushes Bears by Dennis Sharkey The Oskaloosa Bears bowed out of the playoffs early by getting thumped 40-6 by top seed St. Mary's Colgan- Pittsburg in Class 2A first round playoffs. The final score is not indicative of how the game played out and the Bears had a chance to take a lead as the second quarter wound down. The Bears trailed only 7-6 at the half after Jake Buscher scored on a four-yard touchdown run but a two- point conversion try by Levi Wade fell short. The Bears then stopped the Panthers on fourth-down and went into the locker room down by one. The Bears were able to keep the Colgan offense off the field most of the first half by dominating the time of possession and running more than twice the offense plays than the Pan- thers did. The Panthers got the ball first in the second half and used only four plays to extend the lead to 14-6 when Col- gan quarterback Andy Farmer found Christian Smith on a screen pass that turned into a 49-yard touchdown. Colgan then pinned the Bears back to their own 14-yard line on the kickoff. The Bears' offense struggled to move the ball on first- or second- down but quarterback Adam Bowser completed three straight passes on third-down to keep the drive alive. But the drive ended on the Panthers' 26-yard line when a pass at the goal line intended for Levi Wade was batted away on fourth-down. Colgan then marched the ball 74 yards, aided by two personal foul calls on the Bears and pour tackling, to extend the lead to 21-6. Again the Colgan kickoff team Photo by Dennis Sharkey Oskaloosa Bear Levi Wade triedsto break a tackle during the third quarter of Friday's playoff loss to St. Mary's Colgan 40-6. Wade and the rest of the Bears had a tough time running the ball against the Panthers. pinned the Bears deep setting them up at the 13-yard line. The Bears again began to move the ball out of their own end on two consecutive first-down plays that put the ball at the Bears 41 yard line. However, Colgan's defense made adjustments and sacked Bowser on second- and third-down and push- ing the Bears back to their own 21-yard line and forced a punt. Colgan used four plays and ex- tended the lead to 28-6 with 10:26 left in the fourth quarter. Matters only got worse for the Bears from that point. Dalton Ricketts fumbled the ensuing kickoff after it appeared he would get a big return. The Panthers recovered at the Bears' 44-yard line and turned it into a touchdown. Adam Bowser would throw an interception on the Bears' next pos- session that would turn into points. Ricketts then fumbled the ensuing kickoffagain and the Panthers would punch the ball in on fourth and goal for the final score. The Bears were held under 100 yards rushing by gaining only 95 yards. Colgan was able to gain 233 yards on the ground. Mark Newell led the Bears with 67 yards on 18 carries. Wade had 26 yards on eight carries and three catches for 43 yards. Bowser completed seven of his 14 passes for 96 yards. Oskaloosa Bears 2010 season stat leaders Passing Comp. Att. Yds. TD Int. Adam Bowser 35 65 683 8 2 Receiving No. Yds.
