By Ken Garner news@navarrepress.com It’s a football truism: it’s hard to play catch-up without a passing game. Navarre beat Pace 28-19 Friday at Bennett C. Russell Stadium with a balanced, big-play offense and a defense that slowed the Patriots’ trademark rushing game and stifled Pace’s nearly non-existent passing attack. The victory was the Raiders’ first of 2013. The Patriots fell to 0-3. The Maroon and Black attack struck twice from long range in the first quarter, when Alex Wattley and Derrick Smith scored on runs of 63 and 62 yards, respectively, on Navarre’s first and seventh plays from scrimmage. “We jumped on them early with the two big runs,” second-year Navarre coach Jay Walls said after the game.“I thought that was huge to get out to the early lead because we knew Pace was going to be tough, and they weren’t going to go away.” Despite the deficit, the Patriots kept pounding away at the Navarre defense. Junior tailback Quaide Weimerskirch rushed for 274 yards and three touchdowns and fullback Jon Jon Martin added 109 yards rushing. The persistence seemed ready to pay off in the third quarter. After a 44-yard touchdown pass from Raider quarterback Matthew Webb to Gatlin Casey increased Navarre’s lead to 15 points, Weimerskirch returned the ensuing kickoff 34 yards

and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Navarre gave the Patriots the ball at the Raiders’ 37. Seven plays later, Weimerskirch barreled into the end zone from two yards out. The Patriots couldn’t convert the two-point pass play, but kicker Noah Green recovered an onside kick that glanced off a Navarre player and, trailing by nine, Pace had the ball at its own 44 with 5:26 left in the third quarter. Weimerskirch and Martin marched the ball to the Navarre 4-yard-line, but on third-and-goal Weimerskirch fumbled the ball into the end zone. Navarre took over possession on its own 20, and neither team threatened to score the remainder of the game. While Weimerskirch and Martin combined for almost 400 yards rushing, the Patriots completed just three of 12 passes for 29 yards. Navarre, meanwhile, showcased a diverse array of offensive weapons. Seven Raiders combined to rush for more than 200 yards, led by Derrick Smith’s 104 yards on the ground. Webb completed passes to nine receivers en route to compiling 247 yards through the air. Blake Malter had six catches for 69 yards. Dylan Main caught a 13-yard pass after it was tipped in the end zone for the Raiders’ third touchdown. Navarre will host Crestview at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Bennett C. Russell Stadium. See page 3C for game stats

Lady Raider volleyball beats Escambia, loses to FWB

Volleyball

By John Richardson news@navarrepress.com

Shelby Kesinger (7) puts away a shot in 3-0 win over Escambia.

Raiders celebrate after winning game three against Fort Walton Beach.

For the second time this season, the Lady Raiders easily disposed of Escambia, winning three straight games at home on Sept 9. The Raiders won 25 – 9, 25 – 8 and 25 – 14. Sheila Faris had an outstanding night setting up the hard-hitting front line. “The team is gaining confidence with each game,”Faris said.“The back line is able to find me with passes and I have been able to set up Escambia 9 8 14 Navarre 25 25 25 out outside hitters.” The Raiders jumped out to an 11-3 lead in Stats: the first game after a nice pass from Ashanti Sheila Faris - 12 assists, 8 aces, 7 digs Tucker provided a side-out kill by Shelby Kesinger. Shelby Kesinger – 3 kills Monica Foster then served her first of 10 aces Ashanti Tucker - 6 kills during the run. Kiera Foster - 4 kills, 4 digs Escambia could not get anything going offenMonica Foster - 10 aces sively. When they did return the ball, the Raider back line bumped up the ball nicely to Faris FWB 25 25 13 25 who set up Kiera Foster with side-out hits. With Navarre 11 20 25 9 the Raiders ahead by a 21 – 9 score, Monica Stats: Foster served four straight winners that gave Sheila Faris- 17 assists, 12 digs the Raiders a 25 – 9 victory. Kiera Foster- 8 digs, 2 blocks The second game was very much like the Monica Foster- 4 kills, 2 aces, 13 digs first. The Raiders jumped out to a 7-0 lead on Shelby Freese- 5 kills, 2 blocks Faris’ hard serves which included three aces. Abbey McLelland- 18 digs Kiera Foster served another five points to make the score 14 – 3. Libero Abbey McLelland played well on the back row, passing the ball to Faris. Shelby Freese ended any Gator hopes with several blocks at the net as the Raiders won 25 – 8. The third game was close until Monica Foster served with the Raiders down by one. She served the next seven points, including several aces. The Gators attempted a comeback and came within two points at 16-14. However, Monica Foster served nine straight winners, giving the Raiders a 25-14 victory. The Raiders hosted district rival Fort Walton Beach on Sept 12, and things did not go as well.The Raiders seemed tentative in the first game. Although theVikings did not have a height advantage, they out-hit the Raiders throughout the game on their way to a 25-11 victory. The second game was a close affair until the Vikings ran off seven straight points to go up by a 16-9 score. The Raiders lost the game 25-20, but not without several good runs. Faris passed the ball well and Monica Foster had an ace, and two kills. McLelland was outstanding with one diving save after another. Kiera Foster and Freese each added two nice blocks and Emma Belmain contributed a kill and a block. The loss was a wake up call for the Raiders. Their confidence grew with each point. Had it not been for three Raider service errors and a couple of unforced errors, the game might have been even closer. That confidence continued in the third game and the Raiders took an early lead and never relinquished it. Faris continued her good passes to the front line and Kiera Foster, Monica Foster, Freese and Belmain converted them into points. McLelland was all over the backline diving and popping upViking kill attempts. Ashanti Tucker, C. J. Johnson and Kendall Stacey contributed great defense from the back line. The Raiders won the game 25 – 15. The Raiders fell behind early in the fourth game by a 12-3 score.The teams traded several side-outs, but the Raiders could not close the gap and lost 25-9. The Raiders’ record is now 3 – 4 and 0 – 2 in district play. Their next game is at home on Sept. 19 against Choctaw.

Raider Cross Country girls finish 4th, boys 5th in Mobile By Bob Grant Special to the Navarre Press The Navarre High School girls Cross Country team finished fourth at the Mobile Challenge of Champions Invitational. Despite having two turned ankles from their runners, the Lady Raiders still finished fourth out of twenty-three teams in the Open Division.

Three Raiders - sophomore Bailey Gardner in 22:30, senior Kaitlin Bouchat in 22:53, and sophomore Sophia Tucker 23:44 - finished sixth, seventh, and fifteenth, respectively. Other Navarre runners faring well included junior Gabi Silva (57th) in 26:23; sophomore Olivia Taylor in 29:07; junior Jackie Neville in 29:18; senior Gabrielle Abrams in 30:10; junior Seira Sanchez

in 30:57; junior Syvanne Russell in 31:20 and senior Ashley Cunliffe in 35:38. “The Mobile course was narrow and some of the paths were worn with roots above ground. However, our girls finished fourth despite a little adversity,”said Lady Raider Coach Jennifer Angeron. Their male counterparts also ran well, despite the less-than-ideal conditions.

Twenty-six teams competed in the Male Open Division. Navarre’s Tanner Wilcox finished third overall in the Open Division with a time of 17:52, while fellow senior Dominic Dudai finished fourth in 18:26. Junior Mitch Anderson was right behind his teammates in fifth with a time of 18:28. Also running well for the Raider boys were senior Justin

Thompson (55th) in 20:23; freshman George Herring (57th) in 20:25: juniors Chris Barbee in 20:31 and Ryan Schmitt 20:42; freshman Austin Epstein in 20:43; senior Taylor Davis in 21:06; freshmen Joshua Tilton in 21:23 and Austin Clapp in 21:42; junior Evan Bowyer in 22:57; senior Ben Chrisco in 23:07 and junior Brock Peters in 23:34.

“Even at 4:30 p.m. (when the boys division ran), it was a hot and humid run,” said Wilcox, the top finisher among the Raider runners. “Our times were off,”said veteran boys Coach Tom Lintz. “The course was narrow and a little rough. Despite the conditions, some of our younger runners were pushing the experienced ones.”

Broxson’s Great Outdoors By James Broxson broxsonoutdoors.com

Spanish Mackerel, hunting season just around the corner

This past week anglers have been seeing plenty of action. On Navarre Pier, anglers have been taking advantage of some great Black Snapper fishing this past week. Spanish Mackerel are still being caught, but the majority of them are too small to keep. Ladyfish have also been caught, although they are not great table fare they provide anglers plenty of action and they are extremely fun to catch, especially for young anglers. Spanish Mackerel and Ladyfish can easily be caught on a Gotcha plug or a bubble rig. King Mackerel have been caught occasionally, but with the changing of the season we should start seeing some big King Mackerel show up like we do every year. King Mackerel can be caught on a live bait, frozen cigar minnows or a Rapala X-Rap. Speckled Trout and Redfish are still being caught in the sound. Mirrolure’s and a good selection of Berkley Gulp soft plastics will do the trick on any given morning. In East Bay, we have been getting reports of Speckled Trout, Bluefish and Jack Crevelle. The Speckled Trout have been caught on soft plastics and top water lures in deeper water, Bluefish can be caught on any kind of bait you can throw at them and Jack Crevelle can be caught on a big Mirrolure, a mullet or a menhaden. Hunting season is just around the corner. Archery season opens October 27 in most areas. Hunters have been doing some preseason scouting and preparing their food plots for the upcoming season. We have been getting a lot of reports of snakes being seen so make sure to wear your snake chaps when you head to the woods. Also, now is the time to start gearing up for hunting season. It is a good time of year to break out your old equipment and check it for any safety issues before the season is upon us.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently voted to add more license-free fishing days, bringing the total number to eight per year. The Associated Press Florida is getting four additional license-free fishing days, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission announced Monday. From now on, the state will offer eight license-free fishing days a year. “Florida’s license-free fishing days are the perfect opportunity for people to try, or introduce a friend to, some of the finest fishing in the world,”Gov. Rick Scott said in a news release.“Florida’s recreational freshwater and saltwater fishing industry has an $8.9 billion economic impact and events like these help grow the industry even more.” Florida already offers four

license-free fishing days a year. Saltwater days this year were on June 1 and Sept. 1, and freshwater days were April 6 and June 8. FWC commissioners voted last week to hold additional saltwater license-free fishing days Oct. 12 and Nov. 30 and additional freshwater license-free days Nov. 29 and Dec. 28. The Florida Legislature approved this increase earlier this year. “I’m excited that the FWC has adopted four more license-free fishing days for a total of eight days per year,” Scott said.“These days are a great way to introduce more Floridians to the lifetime sport of fishing.” Commissioners also set dates for 2014 and beyond. All eight days will now fall

on the same day of the week from year to year, allowing potential anglers to plan fishing trips in advance. Starting next year, saltwater days will be the first Saturday and Sunday in June, the first Saturday in September and the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Freshwater days will be the first Saturday and Sunday in April and the second Saturday and Sunday in June. Florida residents and visitors normally need a license to fish in state waters. The FWC sells annual saltwater and freshwater fishing licenses to residents for $17 each or $32.50 for a combo license. Non-residents pay $47 for each annual license, but three-day and seven-day licenses sell for less.

thing is it's behind us," Kenseth said. "I think it's pretty clear what everybody expects and the things we should do or not do, though a lot of that is pretty obvious, anyway. Hopefully we can move on because I think it's been a tough week — not only for some of the teams involved, but I think it's also been a tough week for NASCAR." A strong opener to the 10-race Chase would have gone a long way, but rain made it a difficult day. The start was delayed by mist for almost 90 minutes. Once the race did go off, it made it almost to the halfway point before the sky opened up again. In all, there were two stoppages totaling 6 hours, 30 minutes and Kenseth didn't cross the finish line until early Monday morning. It was worth the wait when he passed Busch on a restart with 27 laps remaining — in part because of a push from Kevin Harvick — then led Busch across the finish line for a 1-2 finish for Joe Gibbs

Racing and Toyota. He'll take an eight-point lead over Busch into next week's race at New Hampshire That's bad news for the rest of the Chase field: JGR drivers have won six of the seven races so far this season on 1.5-mile tracks, and four of the nine remaining races in the Chase are tracks covering the same distance. Kenseth, a six-time winner this season, has four wins on 1.5-mile tracks. "We're excited about that," crew chief Jason Ratcliff said. "I think our program has been pretty solid all the way around." This latest victory denied Busch a weekend sweep yet again. He'd won the Truck and Nationwide Series races this weekend, only to come up short in the main event. The same thing happened last month at Bristol, where Busch won the first two legs of the trifecta only to be denied the sweep by Kenseth. "Oh, yeah. I watched it slip right away," Busch said. "Nothing you can do about

it. Certainly it would be nice if we could have won and brought home a trifecta. It was going to be cool." Harvick finished third, Kurt Busch was fourth and teammates Jimmie Johnson and Gordon were fourth and fifth as Chevrolet took spots three through six and Chase drivers swept the top six spots. Gordon, who only learned he made the Chase 48 hours before the race, was in great shape until he got a flat tire that forced him to pit and claw his way back for his finish. "That was an incredible accomplishment. It just shows how much fight this team has in them. They just never gave up," he said. "To think how far down we were with 40 laps to go — I know we were 18th on one of those last restarts — to be able to come up through there and get sixth, and have a shot at top-five, was a lot of fun. That's what we needed to get this thing started off right." Defending series champion Brad Keselowski, who failed to qualify for the

Chase this year, was seventh. Keselowski was the defending race winner. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was eighth. Clint Bowyer, the driver who first triggered all the trouble last week at Richmond when he spun with seven laps to go in an effort to help teammate Truex make the Chase, finished ninth. Newman was 10th, Carl Edwards 11th and Kasey Kahne 12th. Chase driver Greg Biffle was 16th. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (35th) and Joey Logano (37th) had the worst nights of the Chase drivers as both failed to finish because of engine issues. "I am pretty angry. That was such as fast race car we had," said Logano, the pole-sitter. "Unfortunately the motor blew up. You have these every once in a while. It is a bummer to have it in the Chase when you are running for a championship." Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
