Baylor edges Webb

Webb School of Knoxville played its final game of the 2008 season against Chattanooga Baylor Friday, Oct. 31, in Chattanooga.

The Spartan team gave it its all, but still fell short 27-23.

With only five seconds left to play, Baylor was called for a defensive penalty, giving the Spartans one shot to win the game. But sophomore quarterback Parker Wormsley’s pass was incomplete.

Baylor came out strong, scoring 14 unanswered points in the first quarter only to by stymied by Webb’s second quarter comeback. The Spartans scored all 23 of its points in the second quarter.

The Spartans led 23-20 until the fourth quarter when Baylor Quarterback Matt Ollerich scored on a 3-yard keeper with 35 seconds left in the game.

The Spartans ended the night with 12 first downs, 203 yards rushing and 108 yards passing.

Junior running back Jarvus Jones scored Webb’s first TD in the second quarter, followed closely by Baylor Wilson on a 36 yard pass from Wormsley and a 20-yard run by senior Sean Panella.

Kicker Trey Blakley kicked a 29-yard field goal to give Webb its second quarter lead.

Caleb Blanche, standout freshman running back, gained more than 1,000 yards during his first season as a Spartan.

In a previous interview with farragutpress Spartan head coach Dave Meske said Blakely was in the running to be a highly recruited college prospect.

Although the Spartan’s will not be seen in this year’s Division II-AA playoffs, with several players returning in the 2009 season, including outstanding freshman running back Caleb Blance who rushed for more than 1,000 yards this season, the Spartan’s have high hopes for its next season.
