Martin is ready to show SEMO area he is a force. I think Sikeston was lucky to win earlier this year in Cape. They will not be as lucky this time...
Cape Central 21
Bring on Hillsboro!!!
Yeah sure they will!
Here we go.
Here fishy fishy fishy. Here fishy.
BillShakespeare looks forward to your exit from this site, as quickly as youve entered it, after your loss Wednesday.
Sikeston will not even know what hit them... You all think Cardinal Ritter game was tough? Well, I will tell you this, if you all put the ball on the ground 7 or 9 times, whatever it was, we will probably have a 4th quarter turbo clock.
Trust me, WE ARE READY!!!
U BETTER HOPE SIKESTON'S BOYS ARE READY!!!
Nice try Capefan0, but you already gave the reason why the Ritter game was tough. Turnovers,duuuh!
As a Central fan, I smell a rat on this one!! Capefan came out of nowhere...Bet his zip code is 63801!!
I was thinking more like this Martin kid was writing it but who knows or who cares it will get people going cause everyone likes to argue.
Trust me CapeFan1 Ive seen many of you guys come and go in the last couple of years and honestly Sikeston dominated 3 of the 4 quarters and came out flat defensively... -7 yards in the second half tells the true story so now that these guys know that if the come out the same way they could lose expect you may not get but 5 first downs all game and I would say at some point martin breaks 1 for a score but other than that BULLDOGS ROLL
And u guys think I'm delusional! Your a Homer haha
I am not a cape homer but i do think they have a good shot in this one. Sikeston's Defense, top 10 in the entire state any class. Offense... ugh you guys know of any flag football games going on by the ymca? bc that's their offense.. its word run or gross run or gross scramble and dodge people til someone gets open.
I gotta agree with Bleed Green on this one (Did I just say that?) Lol.. Capefan as a Jackson fan I put yall on upset alert to beat Sikeston this week but to say a score and almost guarantee a win... Smdh lol
The "YMCA" offense has worked pretty well so long as they hold onto the ball. I'd like to see Marquez Newman get involved a little bit more though.
Hello pot... I'm Kettle, You're Black....
Bleed Green calling someone a Homer is like saying President Obama is the one who messed up the economy.
I think Cape has a chance. (SLIM ONE), but I do feel that Sikeston turns the ball over WAYYYY to much. If they control the ball, the clock and offensive line it will be tough. If you all control these three things CapeFan1 and all his little buddies can stay at home and save gas. No reason missing out on all the candy Wednesday night to go to this game. It will be like taking candy from a baby!
I think Sikeston wins by 3 td's and I actually graduated from Cape Central... So, no HOMER here.
Bleed Green please tell us how good SG is!
LOL, Just kidding!
Ok... we will see what happens on wednesday but I have a feeling That im not gonna be wrong
Well Barack certainly hasn't helped the economy.
I think someone has their holidays messed up cape fan, Wednesday is Halloween not April fools!! I decided I want to play also!
That's a good one TFA. April Fools!! LOL!!!
I wondered how good Sikeston would be if they limited the turnovers. I know Perryville was very weak, but, they answered my question last week. If Sikeston doesnt turn it over again this week, it may not be pretty for Cape. Sikeston wins, 38-14.
With athletes it does work against teams that have inferior athletes. I just don't think sikestons athletes are superior to Cape's. Maybe I am wrong. I am not from either town nor am I a fan of either. The only thing I do think is that Jackson is on the right track but slightly overated. Sikeston controlled them. Without a late score by Jackson to make it look more respectable it was a pretty lobsided game.
Look... We solved the issues with your basketball team the last couple years and Wednesday we will solve your football teams little riddle.
The only people that we are even worried about are linebacker #66 and Defensive End #33 on defense and Word & Gross on offense. We're concerned with focusing more on Word this game. Last time we were shocked with the running ablity of Word and didn't even have him on our radar. He was the difference in that game. (I just feel now we know his weakness is holding on to the ball) We will have both Gross and Word in check and don't expect any issues containing them.
What I think is lost on everyone (both Sikeston fans and unbiased observers) is the improvement the offensive line has made over the course of the season. That group caught a lot of flack all the way through the Poplar Bluff game but have been pretty darn good since then. I think that will help Sikeston the rest of the way instead of being a hindrance.
Hook, line, and sinker!!!!
I think Rocket said it best on another thread! If Sikeston limits the turnovers to 2 or less, they win. I think, any more than that, it could get interesting. I don't see a blowout by either team.
You only worry about 4 players? Wow! Well I guess the rest of the team can do whatever they want and not have to worry about it
Sikeston defense has made capes offense look pretty ymcaish the past few years, so idk if id go that route.
Ive heard this story one to many times
capes offense isn't YMCA.. it's we're running the ball try and stop us.. problem is sikeston just stops it.. huge difference in shotgun 3 wide and a double wing t offense
I hope Sikeston has cleaned up its kickoff game since the Cape game...pathetic...that being said...Sikeston doesnt fumble...they win...they fumble...Cape wins...who can handle the immense pressure??
I had a jolly good time reading this comic strip from capefan.

"How is sikeston going to be better than last years team when they lost their 2 best players? Because anybody that saw any Sikeston game last year knows that if Wiggins or Jackson wasnt facilitating the offense nothing happened. Cape figured that out and beat them."-doinwork
Final Score: Sikeston 76 Cape 55
Before the Sikeston-Cape basketball rematch from Friday, February 11, 2011:
"if cape can handle sikeston's press(which i'm sure they will) this game won't even be close because i know for sure sikeston's 2-3 zone won't be able to stop cape in the half court"-.neverever.

Finally, before the Sikeston-Cape football game on Friday, October 5, 2012:
"I know every year other idiots from Cape get on here and say "this is our year to beat SIKESTON", but I for one never thought we would win, but didn't think we would get embarassed like we did. I am almost 100% sure Sikeston's offense will not have a chance against us this season. Out D will annoy them at the line and on the other side of the ball I don't think Sikeston's Defense is ready for a talented team!"-TigerPride11
"I just feel that we are so much more improved this season that we will make the adjustments needed to finally put an end to Sikeston's dominance. This year Sikeston isn't as solid as they were last year on the Offensive line, last years line was both big and athletic. I also think last years overall skill positions were better than this season, EXCEPT for QB"-CapeFan1
Final Score: Sikeston 25 Cape 21
In conclusion, when we see the Cape faithful talk trash, I feel good about the chances of Sikeston. The Bulldogs will have to play great to win like always but I'm glad the bulletin board material is here for the sake of us fans as much as anything. This was a lot of fun to put together.
I see a quote in Cape paper where Mr Martin says we are coming down, well as they say on The Price is Right, Come on down.
Its hard to be worried about a team you have beaten 5 times in a row, if you were going to beat sikeston it would have been that night in the regular season. The problem is by playing them close they are not going to take you lightly this time and you wont get 21 in the first quarter. The fact that they were able to wake up and still beat you shows how much better they are than cape... now it is a different game with martin but unless Cape has been hiding 2 more clones of him Its not gonna be a fun night to be a tiger
Can someone please tell me why people are hyping Cape! This is cape central every year they under achieve cape is by far the largest town in Semo and they still can't field a decent team! Seriously with all the talent in cape and they can't win and win consistent! Look at SG Freddy PHC all population around 5000 and they win and win consistently! Does cape even have a state title? Please stop talking about them like there an elite program!! Sikeston will beat them and beat them easy
Sonic, I'm hoping the Sikeston defense of the last three quarters of the first Cape game will show up for the second. I feel like Cape really needs to change up their offense.
I agree that Cape needs to change up their offense but they have to find a different kind of quarterback to do that. Vincent isn't a runner and not much of a passer so they have to rely on their running game. I think it will be a close game unless Sikeston scores quickly like they did 2 years ago when they played at Houck and both were undefeated. That game got ugly quick. Bleed--How many people are in the town has no relevance to good football teams if kids don't like playing football. In many small towns the football program is a what brings the town together. There used to be small towns that shut down on Friday afternoons to go to the local high school football games. In Cape football just isn't that big of a deal. I bet there aren't 200 people from Cape there Wednesday and I'm a Central fine. That's not a knock on Cape but they just aren't that interested and that's fine. There are bigger things in life.
Bullet, how does the Cape staff normally go about developing their QBs? As most know, three of the last four years, the guy at QB for Sikeston was playing there for pretty much the first time their senior year (Wiggins and Lewis had never played before and Gross has very limited experience at the position from his junior year. Foster was the only exception). It seems like most of Cape's QBs the last couple of years have been managers and relied on the running backs for most of the yardage.
I should have said Vinson not Vincent.
Vinson and Boreboom were the QBs in 8th grade. Same with Cavaness. Cape seems to lock onto a kid and bring him up through the system. Central is loaded with good running backs this year and I would have tried to develop one of them in the offseason like Gibbs does but that isn't Capes style. The same will be true when Vinson graduates. The kid behind him played QB in the 8th grade and is now JV qb unless someone moves in. By the way, we hear a lot about Sikeston, Fredericktown and Hayti football on SEMO ball. Do you know what they all have in common?
Gibbs coached at all three. I know that. Took Hayti to the championship game back in the late-eighties I believe.
And they all sucked when he took them over!! I believe Hayti went to the finals in '85. I hope it's a good game Wednesday.
The man knows how to get the most out of his kids and makes a great mentor for them. There are very few people in Sikeston who garner as much respect as he does. Obviously, I'd love for Wednesday to be a great game as well.
Either way I'll be happy. Cape has a bunch of really good kids that are seniors so I hope it stays close and is competitive.
Cape has just as much ability to be good at football as sikeston and at the end of the day it comes down to gibbs and his staff being better than Cape's staff.
I think it will be funny seeing the Cape players walk off the field with the W
I will come on here afterwards and say "I WAS WRONG IF IT'S THE CASE", but I don't think you will be hearing it...
WE GOT DIS!!!
Sikeston defensive coordinator coach Mcgill owns Norman's offense...
WE WILL SEE...
I guess CapeFan got his homework done. Time for some milk and cookies and get to bed!
Sikeston has given up 62 points to cape in the last 6 meetings and at least 6 of those points were from defense... As an offensive guy if you arent putting up more that that in 6 meetings at some point you just gotta come out and say you get out coached by that guy because its not like sikeston is that much more talented than Cape
I would have to agree... Your coaching staff is better than ours!
I just think we will finally be able to solve the riddle.
I guess I'm off to bed now that I have had my milk and cookies. Bulletman=not funny
CapeFan---What time does school start in Sikeston? Tell Coach Gibbs I said hi tomorrow when you are at practice!!
SG would beat both Cape and Sikeston. They also would win by 2 scores if they combined both teams and allowed 15 players to play against SG's 11 man squad. Discuss...
Good One... I'll tell your mom hello tomorrow!
I won't see Gibbs though!
Wow! This thread has brought me out of retirement! Haha!! Cape 28 Sikeston 20! Bring on Hillsboro!!
No need to discuss Kzar! Now go give BG a goodnight kiss!
Not my type. I don't fraternize with dragons.
Cape fans: To quote a rapper "You had a better chance of winnin throwin the towel in"
Cape couldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight
Found a good image to think about DOGS!
This was on google images after typing in "Sikeston loses game football"
I think we might see this again on Wednesday!
Love it when a DOG crys!
I assume thats the same heart brokenness you cape players assumed in week 9... to none other than that same B-E-A-UTIFUL QB
Let's stop feeding the trolls!
How about my new avatar!! Guess you don't know what it feels like to go undefeated in the regular season....
Hahahahahahahaha Sonic!! Irony is beautiful!
Sideline I know this is off subject, but Obama may not have been or done what you & your cohorts wanted, but the mess BUSH left behind, u should be ashamed for that comment!! The president before Obama was the worse in the history of presidency!!!! BUSH!!! Nobody could clean that mess up in one term!!!!!
Hate....Obama has very nicely taken the mantle of "worst president in history" from Carter. I'm sure Jimmy is proud to get that monkey off his back.
Not sure you want to debate Sideline about Politics. Kinda his forte. A few of the posters know what I mean lol.
This game is what the new playoff system is all about. It allows 2 mediocre teams to puff up their chests for for a week or two at the end of the season. Both will be playing basketball in a week.
I have known Kent Gibbs all the way back to his Hayti days and i can tell you he knows how to get the most out of his kids. He coached Football and Wrestling at Hayti and brought both from nothing to State championship programs! Long after he left they still have a long tradition of winning. Same with Fredericktown. He will have the boys ready to play Wednesday you can bet on that! I say Bulldogs 35 Tigers 14.
Please God, dont let this forum turn into a political debate I get enough of that crap... Just so you know nobody cares what your political opinion is. Everybody from the other party will bash the president and blame him for every problem there is in the world... Right or not in your eyes Id assume that every president has tried to do what's best for the country in their's. And until we have a president that just gives the US to the Chinese I will continue to voice my George Washington likee anti political party opinion
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_did_George... Nostradamus like George Washington
Agreed! I come on here to get away from real life stresses and enjoy some sports talk/debates. Politics is the very last thing I want to talk about on Semoball lol.
He Hate Me---Go to the newspaper forum to talk politics. This is a sports forum. CapeFan---If you see my mom today you have bigger problems that the Cape/Sikeston football game. She passed away 7 years ago. Just hope you end up in the right place because I know where she is!!
I have a question for you Sikeston fans. I saw the picture of JT Jones on the main page and he looks like he's in great shape this year. He has a great build for football, does he just not like to play? He could be a force on that D-line.
Cheese---I'm not from Sikeston but he was the tailback when he was in the 8th grade...Not sure how long he played but he was good.
He played some last year then he quit. Maybe he wants to only play one sport alot of kids are doing it now.
some people dont want to play o line
JT is a GREAT kid and an unbelievable athlete! More importantly, he is a great student. Sikeston is lucky to have him. He is very-well suited to play D line or O line. He has indicated to me that he may play football next year.
Cheese....what great eyes you have! JT is coming into the hoops season probably in the best shape of his life. He has dropped a few pounds (not that it was a problem before) and he is in fantastic shape. He is going to be an ABSOLUTE monster this year!
I was just working a joke in from the material Mac n Cheese gave me. Didn't mean to incite a political discussion with a guru as knowledgable in the political process as He Hate Me. I'll let him be the one to educate you all. Hah. If anybody is actually curious about my political thoughts (I know that's a ton of you), refer to my Twitter.
In regards to JT, as far as I know, he's wanting to focus on basketball because he wants to get Sikeston to a state title this year. Perhaps (and this is just speculation with no supporting facts) he could decide to play next year for fun like Darryl Howard and Janiel Hatchett did their senior years but basketball is his focus.
I have to agree that JT is going to be a monster this year. Him and super V are going to be one heck of a combo.
Yep, Sonic. Our depth is, again, going to be a strength. Maybe even more so than 2011. I've got high hopes for this team.
Terry Jamison was our bball qb. Who's gonna replace him? Man he was good, hardly any turnovers. I know, this is off subject!
Sideline--I saw on another post that you would be at the Ole Miss/Vandy game...I'll be in the grove as well for that game...Hotty Toddy!! They are better this year than I thought they would be..
Way better than we all thought Bullet. Let me know where you'll be tented at and I may try to come by and say hi.
Jamison is irreplaceable. Not saying Sikeston won't have someone capable of running the point, but that kid was special.
No doubt it's hard to replace Terry. However, Vashawn Ruffin and Jarius Ray will handle the 1. Look for J Ray to open some eyes!
Sikeston is about to end capes season in another sport tonight dc4
This has been entertaining. As a Cape graduate I have my opinions on who the new fan boy might be if he is from Cape. As for the coaching staff and play book; Cape had this offense before Norman took over. I am a little surprised he hasn't changed it, but then again he played for teams that were very run dominant. Sikeston's staff is very good in just about every sport though. Another big thing for this game will be the mental side. Several of these Cape players will put there head down if they get down early, at least they used. Hopefully Coach Norman has worked that out of them this year, because they really don't need to take what happens on one side of the ball back on the field on the opposite side. Short term memory will be key.
Ok rocket, lets hope theyll step it up at the point!! Yah how cool is that, we play capesoccer 2nite and capefball 2moro! We need a doubleheader sweep!! Its gonna be tuff to do though, cape is talented both nites!
This has nothing to do with this comments but Rocket I saw where u had 68 on the football thing in newspaper I had 64. I came in 2nd once. Wonder if u win the tv?
Don't let Rocket tell you about his experience with the newspaper football thing. He'll just yell.
Oh ok then forget it Rocket! Lol
SG will get their melons thumped by PHC next week.
Not going to work Zach! You better worry about Freddy who u barely beat in OT!! Thanks to a bogus penalty!!
Fredericktown didn't score a single point after the half.....penalties are penalties.
Lol, whatever dude we're fans. We can look as far ahead as we want with no repercussions. The coaching staff and the boys have to stay focused but we're not required to.
Oh my bad. Repercussion means an Unintended consequence taking place sometime after an event or action.
Crap. You know what consequence means right? I'll tell you later, lol. This is fun.
Zack I beleave it'll be another BOB&BOB show like last year.
TFA....I picked Potosi over NMCC (who was leading the whole game, then lost at the end) and I ended up finishing in a 5-way tie for first. I led the last 3-4 weeks. I'll let you guess where I finished....that's right....5th after they drew our names out of a hat. LOL! I got 2 Mizzou tickets and a $20 gift certificate to Susie's.
The moral of the story is don't ask sideline for any help on picks. He told me to go with Potosi. I lay the blame squarely at his feet!!! LOL!
I guess it would be better to ask who u are picking, then pick opposite??? lol
What he isn't telling you is that he called me each and every week that he was in the lead saying "I'm in the lead and don't want to lose it. I need you to tell me who to pick." and was going to take all the credit while leaving me all of the blame. I can't help that Potosi blew a 21 point lead to New Madrid. It isn't like I told him to take East Prairie over Sikeston or something. I also can't help the fact that ole Jupiter head is too scared to pick on his own. Personally, I think he owes me one of the Mizzou tickets.
sideline.....can you say "hyperbole?" Yep. That's EXACTLY how it went. LOL
The ole reverse psychology trick, huh chuck???
I can say hyperbole but there is none of it in this situation. Any other eighth grade English words you want to spring on me? Participle? Gerund? Just admit you used me for weeks and then kicked me to the curb the second things didn't come up exactly as you want it.
How about dangling participle?? How about exonerate or expunge? What about absconded? Those are cool words!! LOL
Used and abused....
Sideline---I hang out in 2 or 3 tents depending on who all is there. I'll let you know..Hope it's not one of those 11:00 games.
....the BOB & BOB show could be a re-run from a couple of seasons ago. Check with your local cable provider.
Bullet, it's a six o'clock game which will be nice for groving but chilly for watching.
Rocket, you got two Mizzou tickets out of the deal. I know their retail value at this point in the season is only $12 for the set but you get free tickets and cry abuse?
Well I got that one right Rocket. This last time I only missed the Scott City one and our points. I had won the $20 for Suzies u can't get alot. I knew there was a 5 way tie for first I wonder who won the TV then ? I told them they need to do one for bball.
Zack i did miss 2 of the last 13 seasons did we lose them episodes, mite mave to catch the re-runs! HA!HA!
"Watch Out Sikeston...We're coming!!"
PUMPED... PUMPED... PUMPED....
Only a few more hours left in the Sikeston Football season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ya 2 wins in 25 years whooooo!! And they barely won those!! I heard this right out of the mouth of a PHC coach! " We just can't beat this team" ya your right WE ARE STE GEN and u r the flat river central rebels haha
I met them yesterday, TFA. I can't remember his name though. Very nice folks....
There are going to be some people who will have to eat some serious crow tonight! Whose it going to be?
With this being Halloween maybe Cape is bringing another team dressed up as them. Maybe we need to check ID's
Plus they wear Halloween colors they might have some monsters out there
Thanks Sideline...Just get enough anti-freeze in you and you'll be fine! HA! Just wish the band could still play "from dixie with love"..
Bleed Green is on pins and needles.....hoping and praying that Fredericktown beats PHC tonight. It's ok....I understand, little buddy.
AND Remember.....A Dragon may be superior in size and strength, but all an eagle has to do is peck the dragon's eyes out.
I knew they would come in costume they don't have orange and black on they have burgundy! Are they trying to be Cardinal Ritter?
I know I gave Cape a fighting chance earlier but here it is. Sikeston 27 Cape 13
Half Sikeston 7 cape 3
SHS 14 cape 17
well I was wrong... I guess I didnt account for the fact that this group never was apart of sikeston learning how to win and was just apart of the winning... ball security was bad all year, also cape is gonna have their hands full on monday
That was a game we should have won Sonic. It's too bad.
Seriously sonic? A group never learning how to win? Wow! You are a piece of work! How far did you make it last year? One more game? I guess winning one more game makes you part of learning how to win!
He made it to the same round mmorse.
We didnt either the group before us did...
You know I know there is smack talk on the lines and everything but thinking the N word isn't necessary just saying. But on a positive note I don't have to freeze anymore and I'm ready for bball!
But if were gonna dwell in the past last years team would have beat this years... and thats nothing against this years seniors they were burdened with carrying the load of an average group of juniors
I wonder why you think that! Hahaha!!!!
Come on fellas just give Cape credit....I know it hurts but CT won and Sikeston lost....Keep on liven in the past
It's fun to stay the YMCA!! like I said, no real offense just backyard ball and it finally bit ya.. yeah yeah you cost yourself by fumbling but so did cape.. couple big plays but can't sustain a drive
calm down, Sikeston won 6 straight,you were bound to win eventually
Sports nerd I'm thinking you said we would win so why are u acting like u said cape would?
I know TFA I'm ready for bball. I'f u fumble it can Hurt.. SHS will have to try again next year congrats to Cape You never know Cape may give them a run n Basketball as well. Time will tell
I wouldnt bank on beatin cape next year...
That was a great high school game. Sideline---I don't disagree with you often, but in my opinion Cape dominated the second half except for that one play where gross scored after the fumble by Cape. You know I'm no homer as I really like Gibbs but Cape was the better team tonight.
Well hello stlfan. Now I can tell its close to bball cause your on here
I'm biased by grumpiness right now Bulletman. I thought we should have never put Cape in a situation to be within a TD by the fourth. I'll be better tomorrow. Hah.
Congrats Cape good luck Monday night because I didn't see us getting past Monday night but now I don't have to worry about it.
Well you know I'm no basketball guy so only a few more days of semoball for me. I was surprised that more people weren't at the game. I wish Missouri was like Tennessee and played all games on Friday.
I don't understand why you're not a basketball person Bullet. I'm more basketball than football.
Yep, I was ready for basketball season, but not THAT ready! My hat's off to CT, that last drive was all heart. My Dogs showed their biggest weakness(fumblitis)and it cost them a shot at redemption against Hilsboro. Best of luck to Central, Jackson, and Caruthersville in the coming weeks, play hard and represent! #roundball #BulldogPride
Congrats Cape! I knew u all could do it!
Wow! Heartland football Friday, Chris word face in camera, says it'll be a show, grab some popcorn (Terrell Owens style). Well it was, and they did (extra butter).
I predicted a sikeston win but also stated I thought cape had a great chance, much better than any sikeston, or most, we're giving cape.. sikestons defense is good, I've already stated that, but for the athletes they have their offense is very average
What hurt Sikeston was a soft schedule. That team didnt challenge their self much this year. Great win CT! Lets get a win on Monday!
TFA I will hit it an quit this bball season lol I'll speak my mind an move on. New era for me not getting into the grumpy hall of fame. See u on the bball forum TFA.
You know I will be there, this is the most I've talked on football I'm learning it a little better now. And the guys aren't being mean to me for my comments. Most know I'm female and I'm learning. Lol
Bigups....Sikeston's "soft" schedule didn't hurt them. Fumbles did... Gotta give credit to Cape. They made the plays when it mattered and the Dogs didn't. The screen on 4th and 10 on the last drive was a great call by Cape.
Shoulda, woulda, coulda....but the fumbles cost Sikeston the game. I was worried right off the bat when we fumbled the opening kickoff. You can't fumble going into the endzone and fumble near the red zone...not if you expect to win. Fumbling is kind of like a virus....once it starts, you just can't get rid of them.
Nah, schedule had nothing to do with this. It's the same schedule they've always played basically. I don't think playing Rockhurst, Jeff City and Hazelwood would have fixed Sikeston's fumble problems. Fumbles and, ultimately, injuries cost them this game. Losing Spenser Clark for the season proved to come back and bite them in the end. Sikeston's probably 11-0 right now if Spenser never gets hurt but that's part of it. People get hurt and you've got to adapt and overcome it and Sikeston couldn't. They overcame it against Cape the first time in a game that could have gone either way, but they couldn't this time. Amazing how about three or four plays at the end were the difference between winning and losing. Coming up a yard short on a fourth down run to ice the game. Running out of bounds with less than three minutes allowed Cape to keep a timeout that proved costly and probably saved a minute of clock time for Cape. Missing two interception chances on Cape's final drive. Not getting the stop on 4th and 13.
Ive been quite this football season an I agree rocket watching the mass amount of fumbles against Cardinal an then
Again against Cape. You can't carry the ball openly as the running back does for SHS. Guys poking at the ball helmets hitting The Ball an just no security for slippy out your grip. SHS didn't have a problem hitting but very much protecting the ball. I guess u have a soft schedule when you play local SMH. SHS played quality teams even beat u Cape. They watch alot of film an came prepared to win r go home. Cape won. Now I'f Cape were in 5A class would they have made it out of districts probably not who's to say. SHS loss you Won still part of the Bootheel go try an win Monday
hoops....I forgot about the 2 picks that we missed. And, like you said, we pick up the first down with 2 minutes to go and we close it out right there. I don't remember the running out of bounds... We definitely had our chances to stop them on the last drive. I think they had 3 4th down plays where they converted (at least 2 4th down conversions). The D played well in spite of all of the fumbles. We just went to the well one too many times.
sikeston lost...move on...good luck Cape!!
Didn't see this one coming. Job well done Cape!
I know Sikeston lost redshirt, I was there. That's why we have the blogs, so we can discuss and analyze what happened. We will move on when we're through discussing. Thank you for your participation in this dicussion.
Fumbles certainly cost Sikeston but you're acting like Cape never fumbled..Martin had a huge fumble when Cape was driving for a score which allowed Gross to run the 65 yard touchdown. The fumble that Sikeston had early that went through the endzone was AFTER another Martin fumble. You never know what would have happened had there been no fumbles and we will never no...It was a fun game to watch
No doubt fumbles were costly for both teams. Sikeston lost three and Cape lost two. The one that Martin fumbled to start the third quarter was negated by the fumble through the end zone so that one didn't cost them. All three of Sikeston's fumbles were very costly. Obviously fumbling into the end zone is a 7-point swing. The fumble on the opening kickoff led to 3 points. And the fumble in the third quarter led to a short field touchdown. Credit Cape for taking advantage of the situation fumbles. Sikeston did not other than Kyland's long run after Martin's last fumble.
Hoops you are correct that on the scoreboard (which is what matters)Sikeston only benefitted from one of Capes fumbles. I was just making the point that without Martins fumble Word would have never had the ball to fumble through the endzone. One thing I don't understand about Cape is why they put freshmen back to return kicks in a big game. With all the upperclass running back talent that was a strange move for Cape.
Sik has a pretty stout defense all yr, I'm not sure if sik gave up 100yds all season but Martin was able to run for 170? That's a lot of tough running! I noticed they ran away from Nichols for the most part... Martin missed the 1st game & IMO proved to be the difference in the game. Gross had his normal game but take away his 65yarder, cape did a good job of containing him in this one... Gross was good this yr, I can see him playing slot back he reminds me of #4 Davis for semo... I think he can play that on next level.
Where is CapeFan1, the person that started this thread? Not a peep? Hmmmmm
Cause he wasn't from CAPE!! I said that from the beginning... Read my very first post.
I know bullet. That person went fishing. Turns out they had a lot of bites!
He's turning in his football equipment this afternoon!!
LMAO! The best part was sideline bringing up old CT quotes. That one one will come back to bite you in the (rear). Pleas let the crying continue.
Those were actually kind of funny. I enjoyed reading those. There was so much trash talking two years ago. There hasn't been hardly any trash talking since then. Heck, there was so little of it this year that the author of this thread isn't even a real Cape fan.
Those were fun to look back on and funny to read. You just didn't like them Mule because you don't like me or Sikeston fans.
sikeston lost...I cant go on in life :(
Sikeston no showed last night. I'm willing the lay money that the team overlooked Cape Central. Not saying the coaches did, but I remember being young and arrogant and having beaten Cape as many times as the Bulldogs did over the past several years, they most likely did overlook Cape.
Sideline that is a understatement.
I pity you.
I can't imagine ppl not liking Sikeston fans we aren't any worse than other fans there's just alot of us that are always right! Lol!! Ok maybe not always. Anyway this game is over, we lost now let's concentrate on bball then we really get hate from posters then.
Look semohoops, I knew we would win!!! I called it and talked it and we did it! I'm not from Sikeston and i havent checked in any of my equipment yet. I'm just glad we did what i said we would do. Did we win as big as i thought we would, no!
All i can say is bulletman I'm sorry anout the mom joke, i didn't even think about thst when i said what i did. I'm in no way trying to be a jerk. In closing Ky Gross about ended our year all by himself on offense, but thank the lord up high SIKESTON CAN'T HOLD ON TO ANYTHING.
I didn't feel i needed to come on here cause most have taken their crow and liked it. I'm just glad i don't have to read sidelines top five anymore... at least unless cape's in it.
Oh, Sikeston will not make it out of Districts in basketball either
Keep swimming little fish. Keep swimming.
