Wellington opens at Sellers Park against improved Goddard Ike team

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — First of all check out the Bank of Commerce video above to get you rocking into the home opener. By the way that video was produced by Samson Ledesma, a Wellington High School graduate, who does pretty good work on like everything …••••Now the game. Wellington (0-1) opens at home against Goddard Eisenhower after losing at Augusta 25-14. In 2014, Wellington took down the Tigers 34-0 in what was arguably the Crusaders best and most complete game of the season.But things might not come as easily for our Dukes Friday night. Goddard Eisenhower is 1-0 after beating Andover 26-25, considered by many as a mild upset. The Tigers, slated in preseason coaches poll to finish fifth in the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. II, beat a team that was picked to finish third and was ranked in the Class 5A preseason poll.The 26-25 victory came down to extra points. Eisenhower made one more than Andover.It was won late when Joseph Weibel rumbled in for a 3-yard touchdown run. Weibel, a Wichita Northwest transfer, ended the game with 138 yards on 30 carries. Mason Madzey is a dual threat quarterback and was 7 of 11 for 96 yards and a touchdown and ran for 90 yards on eight carries.March Marinelli is in his third year as coach of a school that has only been in existence for four years. The 2015 team has plenty of new faces from the one that finished 2-7 in 2014. A win in Wellington would be huge for a program that is still looking to make an imprint on the gridiron.Wellington comes into the contest 0-1 after leading for three quarters before seeing Augusta explode with two touchdowns in the final stanza.The Crusaders finished the game with 210 yards offense to Augusta’s 196.Wellington had five rushers Friday splitting carries. The Crusaders ran 13 of 17 plays on its two touchdown drives.The Crusaders had just 27 yards passing — 25 of those coming on a freakish pass play to Connor Burnett.Wellington-Goddard Eisenhower game at a glance:Home opener: Goddard Eisenhower (1-0) at Wellington (0-1), Friday at 7 p.m.Follow the game: Internet: Live twitter blogs on this site, Sumner Newscow.
