CoGo's Feature Matchup: Western Beaver at Chartiers-Houston

PSR Logo
After a disappointing 0-2 start to the season, Chartiers-Houston will be looking to claim their first win of the new year at home against Western Beaver (0-2) on Friday in a class A non-section match.

Chartiers-Houston started the year slowly, falling to Avonworth in the opener by 24 points and then getting shut out by North Catholic in Week 2. Despite this, Buccaneers head coach Terry Fetsko says he is optimistic that things will turn around.

“We started the season with two of the most difficult teams we’re going to play,” Fetsko said. “I’m real proud of our players and how they played against both those teams. We didn’t back down, we played really hard and played well. It’s just unfortunate that we didn’t come out on top.”

One of the highlights for the Buccaneers in their battle with North Catholic was senior strong safety Wyatt Kincaid, who racked up 18 tackles in the loss. While it is usually not ideal to have a defensive back with so many tackles, Kincaid spent a lot of snaps lined up in the box, essentially becoming an additional outside linebacker. Fetsko anticipates another impactful performance from him in this contest.

“He’s been very consistent on defense all year long. He’s one of our team leaders,” Fetsko said. “He’s been playing very solid. I hope it continues, and I think he is going to be a big part of what we do the rest of the season.”

Other players who could have an impact for Chartiers-Houston are senior wide receiver Austin Warchol, who racked up 68 yards receiving and a touchdown in the Buccaneers game against Avonworth, and sophomore running back Spencer Terling, who averaged over 4 yards a carry and scored a touchdown against Avonworth as well.

Western Beaver, meanwhile, opened the season with a heart-breaking loss to Shenango, falling 23-22 after the Wildcats hit a late 4th quarter field goal to win it. Week 2 was less of a nail biter, as Riverside rolled to a 30-8 victory.

The Golden Beavers will be looking to get big games from senior quarterback Hunter Roknich, who is averaging nearly 90 yards rushing per game and has scored all four of the team’s touchdowns this year, and senior John Sosack, who is averaging 13.5 yards a reception and leading the team in receiving yards.

Stopping the Chartiers-Houston run will also need to be addressed, as Western Beaver has surrendered 590 yards on the ground through the first two games.

The game will start at 7 p.m. at Buccaneer Stadium.Chartiers-Houston
